Hey Ho Bookaholics!
I went book shopping!! I don’t usually dedicate a day or a particular shopping trip to exclusively shop for books, but on Monday I splurged and bought a total of 13 books. I went with three other book loving friends who for the first time didn’t spend as much as me on books.
This haul may not seem that big but I did buy all of these books in one day, and I set myself a personal budget of $100; which with everything else I bought that day did not really stick.
Our first stop was at Dymocks, an Australian bookstore chain (kinda like Barnes & Nobel but not as cool, because we don’t have any exclusive editions). This was the place where we spent most of our time, as the city store is massive! Our second and final book shop stop of the day was Big W, a retail store much like Kmart and Target, which sell books way cheaper than the recommended retail price, many of which are new releasesThe books I purchased are pictured above, from left to right they are;
- The Lorien Legacies Series Books 1-5 $10 from Big W
- The Adjustment $20 from Dymocks
- The Program $20 from Dymocks
- The Mortal Instruments Series $45 from Big W
Overall I spent $95 on 13 books and I have no regrets. The only problem I have encountered is that I now have no room on my bookshelf for all of these books to go. This means I now have over 100 books in my collection and no more shelf space.
My boyfriend bought me a Hufflepuff bookmark! How cute is this?! With the Hufflepuff crest and the bright yellow pop of colour makes me so happy. I have so much house pride. I also made my boyfriend take the Pottermore Sorting Hat Quiz and we discovered that he is a Gryffindor as I predicted!!
My friend bought me this beautiful bookmark from Ink & Wonder online store. I chose it mostly because of the pink colour theme, and the wonderful quote from Fantastic beasts and Where To Find Them.
I have started Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare and I am only half way through. I planned to read 3 books this month although I do not think that is going to happen seeing how slow I have been reading lately.
Stay Happy, Healthy, and have a Lovely Week!!
Thank You so much for reading and I hope to see you all back here Monday to read my latest review 🙂
