Today I want to bring you a post about Book Shopping. Books are a luxury and a privilege for many. We all know they can be so expensive so I wanted to do a post on websites I use for Book Shopping, hopefully I can help you get a good deal on your next book haul!
When buying books I tend to do a search of an array of websites before I click buy on one particular one. I always go where I can find it cheapest unless I have finished a book with a cliffhanger and need it the next day, in that case Amazon is my best friend for one-day delivery.

The Hogwarts Library is a collection of 3 short books by J.K Rowling, each of which are an extension of the Magical world of Hogwarts, Magic and Muggles in which she created. The three books in this collection are The Tales of Beedle the Bard, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (very different from the screenplay) and Quidditch Through The Ages
Today I wanted to do a post dedicated to the book; The Tales of Beedle the Bard. Which is the first book I have picked up
finally from this collection and read and this is infact a perfectly timed post considering that the new covers for this book are on sale!
The Second cover is the cover shown in The Deathly Hallows part 1 Movie.

It’s December, it’s Christmas time. Cue panic for gift buying and sheer amount of ‘WHAT COULD I BUY FOR THEM?!‘ moments.
As we all know Christmas can be pretty expensive, it all adds up and I have rather a big family so it definitely is for me but I thought it would be a fun idea to do a Christmas Gift Guide, bookish gifts on a budget. Have a loved one in your life who loves reading? then keep on reading to see some websites/options you may not have considered. Remember its the thought that counts not the monetary value.

Happy 1st April Guys!
Hope you weren’t tricked into April Fools Jokes this morning.
I think this is actually my first ever post dedicated to a book haul and I am so excited to share what books I got with you. First I ordered 2 of these books of the internet and I then paid a trip to my local bookstore and library in order to check out what books they have lately. It’s been so long since I’ve visited either so it was really nice to finally get round to going again, I do have a ton of university work to be doing but I thought I would go ahead and pick some books up anyway so I can read and relax after a day of working on essays. Here’s what I picked up this month:
Books I purchased:
- The Silkworm – Robert Galbraith
- Career of Evil – Robert Galbraith
- The Bane Chronicles – Cassandra Clare
- Lady Midnight – Cassandra Clare
Lady Midnight finally arrived and the cover is absolutely gorgeous. Although I am super excited to give it a read, i’m not sure which book I will start first with having so much uni work to do. I am actually reading The Drivers Seat by Murial Sparks at the moment so I can use it on one of my essays so I may start with one of the smaller books I got so I can read Lady Midnight when I can cut time slots out of my day to read it all. I’m anxious once I start I might not be able to put it down!
- Half Bad – Sally Green
- The Raven Boys – Maggie Stiefvater
- A Thousand Nights – E.K Johnstone
I’m very surprised by my local library, I live in a small town therefore they don’t have a massive selection of books however they did have a new great selection of YA books so I’m sure i’ll be spending more time in their over summer. I have been seeing Half Bad by Sally Green over instagram a lot lately therefore I thought I would finally pick it up for myself and I have also heard great things about The Raven Boys and A Thousand Nights.
Thank you for reading, did you buy any books this month?
Also I would like to apologise for the quality of the images I used in this post, I really wanted to use a picture which I have taken myself however I only have my phone camera and the glare from the laminated covers of the library books has proved rather tricky and they haven’t come out as good as I hoped and they are a little hard to read. However I hope this hasn’t taken too much from the post quality and you still liked it. Let me know your thoughts in the comments and if you have read any of these books or have any recommendations for books I should put on my TBR list to try to read over summer and this year 🙂
