As you can see, I've gone for a pretty eclectic mix of genres.
These first four were the ones I bought on my first attempt to spend my Amazon voucher:
I've heard loads of people talk about these books on YouTube and have had them all on my mental wishlist for a really long time, so when I finally had the excuse to buy them I jumped at the chance.
This second bunch of books were bought when I actually spent the aforementioned Amazon voucher (fail) (or win, depending on how you look at it):
I bought The City and the Stars by Arthur C. Clarke on a total whim, based solely on my random sci-fi cravings, the beautiful cover, and some pretty impressive rave reviews (which are pretty good reasons to buy a book in my opinion). Amazon also recommended the Penguin mini classics edition of The Machine Stops, as well as these little black classics. And who was I to say no?
These next books were spontaneous purchases from a café in Bristol where I live, which has a 2 for £5 deal (yes please!) on its books. Despite not actually being a bookshop, it does have a pretty good selection, and I managed to pick up a mixture of magical realism, memoir and sci-fi (which apparently has some philosophy thrown in). Can't wait to get to these! :D
So there you have it! I hope you enjoy ogling my beautiful purchases. Do follow me on instagram if you fancy, and meanwhile I'll work on getting a follow button put somewhere more accessible on the blog (I should probably redesign a bit while I'm at it... Any suggestions, let me know!).
What do you think of the books I bought? Have you read any? Or are there any there that you want to read? Let me know in the comments!
