Waterstones Haul

Thursday, February 26, 2015

So apparently we can't walk into a bookshop and not buy something...who knew!? 

This haul actually took place over two days, which just serves to underline my point about something being bought EVERY'damn'TIME. 

Those of you who view the blog on desktop may have noticed my funky little wish list slideshow, if you have you will have seen this bad-boy staring out at you every minute or so. So far, this is a really compelling story of a woman with deteriorating memory trying to solve the mystery of her friend Elizabeth's disappearance. As you can see from the above photo this book won the Costa First Novel Award, so I'm hoping it lives up to the hype. 

Right I'm not going to lie, I bought (well Damian bought) this one based purely on the cover. The fact it looks like my diary when I go post-it crazy, just adds to the appeal. This is the story of Theodore Finch and Violet Markey who are both struggling with their own problems and yet, find themselves falling in love. I'm really excited to get started and see how the story unfolds. 

Do I really need to explain these ones? Tanya and Fleur are two amazing bloggers/vloggers that have really found their place in the industry. Both books appealed to me, as both a blogger and as a woman who is just starting to experiment with the beauty side of things. I dove straight into The Glam Guide and I'm sure I'm going to love it.

I'm not even mad that Chuck the Waterstones guy spelled our surname wrong, growing up as a McCahery I am more than used to it, because THAT ^^^^ is a pre-order of Harper Lee's Go Set  A Watchman!! To Kill a Mockingbird is one of my all-time favourite stories and when I heard they were finally releasing her previously unpublished prequel I literally squealed with excitement. 
Right now, Waterstones are doing the book for half price if you pre-order it before its 14th July release date. If you really want to read this (if you don't I'm not sure we can be friends) I highly recommend taking advantage of this offer, because the book is retailing at £18.99, and because I am lovely...buy it here!

I'm so excited to read my new pile, which will be taking up residence next to my Crime pile, my to re-read pile, and my Classics pile! 

I'd love to know if any of you have read these books yet, and what you thought of them? Or are there any books you think I should be adding to any of my piles? Leave me a comment below, or as always tweet me :-). 

Much Love
