March Book Haul

Monday, 30 March 2020

March has almost gone, and what a cracking month it’s been for books. My birthday was at the beginning of March and any excuse to buy a tonne of books is always a welcome one in my eyes. 

I first picked up Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell by Susanna Carke. This is a beloved novel by many and I’ve debated picking it up for a long time now and I was SO close to giving in on a recent Waterstones trip, but then luck seemed to be on my side because I saw this in a charity shop for 49p and at that price it was pretty much impossible to resist! This is a hefty book though and is over 1,000 pages long, but I’ve heard it’s amazing!

I also picked up The Doll Factory by Elizabeth McNeal on my lunchbreak at work too. This was 100% a panic buy and the cover was what swayed me - I mean, just look at it! Although the cover is very pretty, I've since read some reviews on this book and apparently it's a bit creepy in places and if you know me, you know that I DO NOT GO ANYWHERE NEAR scary books. So, this one was a bit of a fail on my end but who knows, one day I might be brave enough to pick it up!

For my birthday, my Dad very kindly bought me two books I’d been after for a long time, and they are The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren and Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston. I’ve already read The Unhoneymooners and I’m hoping to pick up Red, White & Royal Blue soon!

My best friend got me A Boy and his Dog at the End of the World by C.A. Fletcher for my birthday too!

For my birthday, my husband treated me to a night away in York and whilst there, I was very much in a TREATT YO SELF mood because I bought three books all by Fredrik Backman. I read A Man Called Ove by Backman a couple of months ago and it’s one of the best books I have read in a very long time and I just knew I had to pick more of his books up. I picked up Britt-Marie Was Here, My Grandmother Asked Me To Tell You She’s Sorry, and Us Against You which is the sequel to Beartown (which I already own). I think I now own all of his full-length novels which I’m pretty excited about and will no doubt pick up one of his books sooner rather than later!

What books have you picked up this month?
