August 2017 Book Haul! 10+ Books!!

Hey Ho Bookaholics!

I only paid $10 for books this month and I could never be prouder of myself in the shopping department and for this achievement I would like to thank Bloomsbury for inviting me to the Bloomsbury Bloggers event and gifting me with all of these amazing looking books! I would also like to thank Andrew’s Bookshop for actually stocking and discouting a hardback graphic novel! Three things that are very very hard to come by in Australian bookstores – hardbacks, cheap books, graphic novels – were found and August ended on an amazing note.

July Book Haul!

Hey Ho Bookaholics!

Not only has July ended, but so has my uni holidays 😦

Unlike when I first started this blog, every month I have been acquiring more and more books; and trust me when I say that I am in no way disappointed by this. Rather I am quite thrilled that I have been able to work hard to gift myself these books, and on most occasions find bargains to save myself money for other things.

Here are 5 of the 6 books I bought this month, not in order of purchase date, but in order of size.

I read Release by Patrick Ness for the BookTubeAthon 2017 and posted a spoilerish review on Monday, which can be viewed if you click this link or on the word above.

I also have a post of mini reviews for the Harry Potter series which includes my thoughts on The Prisoner of Azkaban, which I published a while ago, which can be accessed via this link or the link above.

And the last book I bought, but don’t anticipate to read for a long while is;

  • The Trials Of Apollo: The Dark Prophecy by Rick Riordan

I purchased this one from K-mart, because it is a large paperback and they dissapear after being on the shelves for a couple of months, also it matched my equally unread copy of The Hidden Oracle I purchased last year.

.

Stay Happy, Healthy, and have a Lovely Week!!

Thank You so much for reading! I hope to see you all back Monday for another review 🙂

I Actually Read Books This Year!(?)

Hello Bookaholics!

I don’t know how but the first half of the year had come and gone so quickly, I havent had any time to appreciate the whirlwind that it was. I also didn’t gat time to appreciate all the good books I wanted to read and admire; but here are the special ones I did, and their reviews.

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.

November Wrap-Up

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 gained alot of love from my September/ October wrap-up that I posted last month, and I really really liked how that post turned out, so I am back with another post very much like it! 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!

August Wrap-Up + Haul

Hello Bookaholics,

It has not been long since my last post (only 4 days if I counted correctly). I am so proud of myself for keeping up with my blogging lately because I have lots more posts scheduled for your entertainment coming. But without further ado, let’s review the books I managed to read – and buy – in the month of August!

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
