Book Haul

Hello Everyone!
  So today I'm here to share with you what books I have recently bought and I'm so excited to share these.

  I went into town with Luke on the Easter weekend and decided to go into our local WHSmith and pick up a few books as I feel like it's been a while since I bought myself some new books so I was so happy when Luke just followed me round whilst I went through each bookshelf about four times (Oops!) I've wanted to pick these books up for such a long time so I'm glad I did pick them up and I cannot wait to start reading them.
I saw this book all over YouTube last year maybe and I just think this would be a book I would love so I decided to finally pick it up, The blurb of this book just pulls me in each time I just want to pick it up straight away so I thought I would share the blurb with you- "This is a love story. But it's not what you think. This is not a first kiss, or first date. This is not love at first sight. This is a boy and a girl falling in messy, unpredictable, thrilling love. This is the complicated route to happiness that follows. This is real. This is life. This is how to love. Before: Reena has loved Sawyer LeGrande for as long as she can remember. But he's never notice her, until one day... he does. They fall in messy, complicated love. But then Sawyer disappears from their humid Florida town, leaving a devastated- and pregnant - Reena behind. After: Three years later and there's a new love in Reena's life: her daughter Hannah. But just as swiftly and suddenly as he disappeared, Sawyer turns up again. After everything has happened, Can Reena really let herself love Sawyer again?" Yes... That just sounds like such a good book.
  Again this was a book I saw on a book tubers YouTube video and it sounded like such a fun book so I thought I would pick it up but I didn't expect to see it in WHSmith so I was so happy when I saw it. I've decided to try get back into contemporary books as I've kind of stopped reading them and I used to love them so here's the blurb again- "When sixteen year old Eden Munro agrees to spend the summer with her estranged father in the beach front city of Santa Monica, California, She has no idea what she is getting herself in for. Eden's parents are divorces and have gone their separate ways, Now her father has a brand new family. For Eden, This means she's about to meet three new step-brothers. The eldest if the three is Tyler Bruce, A troubled teen with a short temper and a huge ego. Eden quickly finds herself thrust into a world full of new experiences as Tyler's group take her under their wing. But one thing she can't understand I is Tyler and the more she presses to figure out the truth about hi,, The more she finds herself falling for the one person she shouldn't her step-brother" This book makes me so excited to get to it, I bet it's such a good book to read.
  This is the second book in the series above which I was just talking about and I decided to pick it up as I know I will definitely enjoy the first book so I knew I may as well buy it in advance. I'm not going to put the blurb on for this one as I don't want to spoil the first book for myself so I'm just not going to even look at the back of this book. (I didn't even read the blurb when I picked this book up at WHSmith!)
   I've seen so many people talking about this book and it's always been a good review so I really needed to pick this up and I found it in WHSmith so I thought I may aswell pick it up whilst I was in there, Here's the blurb again- " This is a world divided by blood- red or silver. The reds are commoners, rules by a Silver elite in possession of god-like superpowers. And to Mare Barrow, a seventeen-year-old Red girl, It seems like nothing will ever change. That is, until she finds herself working in the silver palace. Here, surrounded by the people she hates the most, Mare discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. Fearful of Mare's potential, the silvers hide her in plain view, declaring her a long-lost Silver princess, now engaged to a Silver prince. " There is more of the blurb but I'd say that kind of explains the story perfectly and makes me so excited to read this.
  The next book I picked up was all the bright places which again I've heard such good reviews of this book so I decided to pick this one up, I have to say Luke read the blurb of this one and he actually thought this sounded really good and he doesn't read any books at all. So here's the blurb- "theodore Finch is fascinated by death, and he constantly thinks of ways he might kill himself. But each time, something good, no matter how small, stops him. Violet Markey lives for the future, counting the days until graduation, when she can escape her Indiana town and her aching grief in the wake of her sister's recent death. When Finch and Violet meet on the ledge of the bell tower at school, It's unclear who saves whom. And when they pair up on a project to discover the 'Natural Wonders' of their state, both Finch and Violet make more important discoveries: It's only with Violet that Finch can be himself- a weird, funny, live-out-loud guy who's not such a freak after all." Again there's more of this blurb but I feel this but of the blurb just literally pulls you in to read this book.
  The next book I've bought was the School of good and evil which is a book I first saw on the shelf of Asda and I really wanted to pick it up but I chose another book instead- This time round I decided to just pick it up oops! But anyways here's the blurb- "Every four years, two girls get kidnapped from the village of Gavaldon. Legend has it these lost children are sent to the School for Good and Evil, The fabled institution where they become fairytale heroes or villains. Sophie, The most beautiful girl in town, has always dreamed of her place at the School for Good while her friend Agatha, with her dark disposition seems destined for the School for Evil. But when the two are kidnapped they find their fortunes reversed..." This is middle grade book I would say but I'm so excited to see how the story unfolds and I know there's a few more books in the series.
  This book I didn't actually get from WHSmith but I actually picked it up in the local £1 shop but the picture just drew me in to reading the blurb when it was on the shelve and I literally cannot wait to actually pick this book up as I feel it may be a little different to what I normally read but I am so excited so here's the blurb- "Ten-year old Bettina and her mother, Babs are heiresses to one of America's biggest fortunes. But Bettina's whole life is overshadowed by that of her beautiful, hedonistic mother, the glamorous but domineering Babs. At fifteen, Bettina escapes to New England and an exclusive preppy boarding school called Cardiss, Where she hopes she can finally start to figure out who she really is." This book just intrigues me as I'd love to see how this story actually unfolds so I can't wait to read this.
Have you bought any books recently?


  1. I picked up All The Bright Places recently (along with many other books, huge bookworm!!) I'm so excited to read it. Every other book you picked up is getting added to my wishlist, as they all sound absolutely amazing.
