IT'S MY BIRTHDAY TODAY *throws confetti at everyone*
You know you're dedicated to your blog when you're blogging on your birthday. This is going to be a long post so strap yourselves in. I'll divide up into easy to digest suggestions.
Look at all this! Most of this is from Stepping Out Of The Page, who is just made of awesome and Kate Bush lyrics. The silver owl is from my Gran. There's books too but those are below!
Books Hoarded This Week
Predator's Gold - Dark Summer - Esio Trot - The Giraffe And The Pelly And Me - James And The Giant Peach
Bought in town - Continuing my terrible habit of buying sequels to books I haven't read, I bought Predator's Gold - the sequel to Mortal Engines. It matched the first book perfectly so I had to have it! I want a whole set of Roald Dahl books, so I was happy when I found these for just 50p each, especially as they're like new.
Bought in Halifax - we went on a kind of one day holiday in Halifax to get away from all the work that's being done on the house. I found these while browsing the charity shops! I've already read The Magician's Elephant. This Isn't What It Looks Like perfectly highlights an irritation I have with books - unlabelled sequels. This is the fourth book but I had no idea.
Found in Asda (the UK's version of like, Walmart) - Having an Asda literally across the street from me is a dangerous, dangerous thing. I cannot stop buying books there - in my defense, £5 for a brand new shiny hardback?
In the mail - I'm still trying to buy more sequels, and complete my Uglies set! Sadly I won't be keeping Oblivion as I bought the wrong copy, I was expecting a paperback and this on my shelves will just look ridiculous.
Birthday Books - I opened these just this morning! I love history and Andrew Marr so I'm really looking forward to diving into these. I've wanted these exact editions of Grimm Tales and 1984 for months, I'm really excited about owning them.
Read This Week
Another eclectic mix this week, but all great reads! The weakest was surprisingly Touch Of Power, which I loved but found there was a bit too much infodumping.
Is that everything? I think that's everything! Don't forget, SHELF TOUR.
