Two Bookhauls!

So I haven’t been buying a lot of books lately as a) I haven’t had a lot of time for reading as I am (STILL) writing my thesis, b) we are kind of about to start renovating and I’ve been buying kitchens and couches instead (yeah. I will all the awards for adulting). But these are just some books I’ve bought since my last book haul, and the books I got for Christmas (which I forgot that I didn’t post on here because I was lacking a computer for a while. Fogive me).

First up! Christmas bookhaul of amazingness.

I got some pretty awesome books for Christmas. Let me introduce you to them (with lots of CAPS because of EXCITEMENT!).

I got a Penguin Library Edition of The Time Machine by H.G. Wells (Because I LOVE H.G. Wells!), an AMAZING edition of The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins. Sorry but the only place I can find it is at Dymocks (which is where I got it because Dymocks is my one true love), but it’s an Australian bookstore.

I also got what has to be the MOST BEAUTIFUL edition of Peter Pan that has ever been produced.

I also got  a SUPER DOOPER AWESOME Classics Reimagined edition of Sherlock Holmes.


I am loving these editions and I have three of them (also Alice in Wonderland, and The Wizard of Oz and I LOVE LOVE LOVE them!).

Lastly I got the INCREDIBLE Folio Society edition of The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood. I will have to do a proper photoset of the illustrations in this book because they are one of the best I’ve seen in Folio Society books.

So I’ve bought a few books since Christmas, not too many. But these are the ones I got.

I got Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovich because my friend, Annie, keeps telling me they are amazing, and I got it at The Book Grocer (which if you’re an Aussie, check them out because all their books are $10).

I also got The Bees by Laline Paull because I was having an argument with a guy in Dymocks about whether Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel is or is not overrated (for the record, it’s a good book, but it is overrated. There was just so much missed opportunity with the writing…anyway) and he suggested I try The Bees. I’ve heard good things and I’m pretty excited to read it because I love books about anthropomorphized animals (it’s a dystopian about bees!).

I got The Lost Books of the Odyssey by Zachary Mason because I heard someone on ABC’s The Book Club mention it and I’ve loved The Odyssey since reading the Wishbone version as a child.

I also got myself a hardback of the amazing Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo, which I reviewed recently. The hardback has amazing black edged pages and I just can’t resist that.

Finally I got Morning Star by Pierce Brown which I am currently reading. I absolutely adore this series and I can’t wait to finish this one. His writing is even more beautiful than his face. Seriously. It’s that good.

    That edition of Peter Pan is stunning, as is your photos – per usual! Dymocks is my one true love as well, though I occasionally get seduce by online shopping.

    The Girl on The Train hardback you have here is also available in the UK – it’s exclusive to Waterstones if anyone is wondering!
