Anoooooooooother book haul. Yikes.

Today I attended the Book Lover Meet Up which I mentioned in this post here

I had so much fun! Everybody was so friendly and lovely and I had a fabulous time!

I also bought a few books…

I have a TBR to last me a lifetime hahaha

However, a couple weeks ago, I took a mini trip to Foyles during one of my breaks at college where I picked up:

The War of the Worlds – H.G Wells
Grimms’ Fairy Tales – The Brothers Grimm

I COULDN’T HELP MYSELF OKAY. 50% off. How could I not?
I’ve been interested in The War of The Worlds for a while and it was only £5.99!

Now on to today’s haul!

Our first stop was in Foyles! I love Foyles. It’s like a palace.

In Foyles I got:

The Jungle Book – Rudyard Kipling
The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau Banks – E. Lockhart
The Island of Doctor Moreau – H.G. Wells

The Jungle Book, I got because 1) the Disney film is fab and 2) there will be TWO adaptations of this within the foreseeable future!

Andy Serkis is directing a feature film of The Jungle Book with Benedict Cumberbatch, Christian Bale and Cate Blanchett.
And Jon Favreau is directing a feature film of The Jungle Book with Idris Elba, Scarlett Johansson and Lupita Nyong’o.

Both lineups sound AWESOME so I want to get on that. I’ve also had a kick for children’s classics lately!

I’m fairly certain Frankie Landau Banks was meant to be published at the end of November?! As soon as I saw it I was like YANK. MINE.

Then we moved on to Waterstones Piccadilly, which is another bookstore that I love, where I bought:

Gone Girl – Gillian Flynn
Vivian Versus America – Katie Coyle
The Manifesto on How to be Interesting – Holly Bourne
Say Her Name – James Dawson

Vivian Versus America was the only one I had a reason for purchasing! I’m about to go on a very long book ban and I have the first one but since it’s only a duo I thought I’d get it so I can marathon!

The others I’ve been interested in for a long time and thought it was about time I owned them!

After I left the meet up, I went to Hatchards to find where it was. I had heard a lot about it and had never been.
So I bought North and South – Elizabeth Gaskell

And then I ran out of money and went home!

I had such a really fun day and now I have plenty to read which I’m looking forward to!

Have you read any of these? Let me know what you thought!

Thanks for reading! 🙂
