Huge June Book Haul!

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.

Singapore Haul (+ Giveaway?)

Hey Ho Bookaholics!

Two days ago I arrived home from an amazing two-week holiday in the cleanest city in the world, Singapore. In Singapore, my best friend and I went to the typical touristy attractions like Universal Studios, The Singapore Zoo, River Safari and Night Safari Attractions, Aquarium, Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N Exhibition, Marina Bay Sands, etc. and while all these were truly magical experiences, walking through the markets and shopping centres, just seeing what things Singapore had to offer that differed from Australia was quite fun. When you have lots of money on you and you’re walking around markets with super cheap items surrounding you, It’s kind of hard to resist.

Hey Ho Bookaholics!

In addition to wrapping up my monthly reading, I also wrapped up 13 years of compulsary schooling as of the tenth of this month.

I will once again be sharing with you the books I read and bought this month, as well as my favourite posts, and some news.

Make sure to pour the water into that cup of coffe or tea you were suppose to make half an hour ago, and get comfy because I did alot this month.

September/ October Wrap Up

Hey Ho Bookaholics!

I am surprising even myself to say that I have kept up with my blogging schedule in these past few weeks. This exam period has been the absolute worst! I have had my ups and downs and with only one more exam to go, I am more stressed than ever especially because my last one if English Language. It is my most important exam and the one I am least prepared for, as I surprisingly hate English as a subject.

I have a lot of favourites in these past two months. I have accumulated some posts that I want to share with you all, books I enjoyed and books I bought, as well as a couple of announcements, one of which is Instagram related.

I bought more Books!! (September edition)

Welcome back  Bookaholics!

This post, as the title suggests is going to be all about the books I purchased this September, and in the last few days of August, because I have somehow accumulated more than usual.

This is my second post in two days! Wow, you guys are lucky. I hope you all liked the Asgardian Book Tag I created for the upcoming Magnus Chase novel, which was posted yesterday. I would love if you all took the time to do the tag – or even just have a look through it. I’d also like to apologise for the weird timing of this post as it is deviating from my usual Monday posting time of 4:00. I hope you can forgive me. Now that my little babble is over, without further ado, let’s dive into my September Book Haul!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, HARRY POTTER!! + Cursed Child Unbagging

Today is the day we take out our wands and don our Hogwarts robes, holding our heads and wands high for our master Harry Potter. Once a boy who conquered evil, now a man who lives inside each and every one of our hearts.

Happy Birthday, Harry Potter!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Harry Potter and The Cursed Child is a story based on an original story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne, and John Tiffany and has been made into a play by Jack Thorne.

It is the eighth installment in the Harry Potter series and is the first Harry Potter story to be adapted into a stage play, shown in two parts with the intention to be seen consecutively in the two sessions (matinee and evening) or on two consecutive evenings. The play can only be seen in London’s West End, premiering July 30.

It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children.

While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.

I cannot wait to begin reading this book!!

I will be posting a review once I have finished this book, but till then, look watch my Instagram for updates and news for the blog!

 

Love,

Bree xx

June Book Haul

This is the first book haul on my blog so I’m quite excited to share with you the amazing books I’ve accumulated this month!

 

From K-mart I bought;

  • Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone ($10)
  • Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets ($10)
  • Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban ($10)
  • Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire ($10)

I already own the last three books of the Harry Potter Series and because K-mart has been selling the beautiful paperback of the Bloomsbury edition of Harry Potter for a while now, I decided to complete my collection by buying the first four books.

Finally, I can read the series since – shame on me – I have never EVER read this series in my entire life and I feel like I have (half) failed a life – considering I have watched all the movies about a million and one times, I haven’t completely failed.

 

From The Book Grocer I bought;

(Actually my dad bought these for me)

  • The Winner’s Crime ($6)
  • The Enchantress ($6)

I thought that The Winner’s Crime was the first book in The Winners Series, but knowing The Book Grocer Store, I shouldn’t have expected it to be, because The Book Grocer store near me doesn’t usually stock full series or first novels in series. This is why I picked up these novels.

Ever since I discovered The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series on the Book Depository last year, I’ve wanted to begin collecting them immediately, and although this is the sixth and last novel in the series, I am so glad to have found it; I literally went crazy and shoved it in front of my dad’s face! It is so flimsy and just feels like the ultimate dream book and I can’t wait to collect the first five books so I can begin diving into The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel.

 

Love,

Bree xx
