March Book Haul

It's the end of the month so it's time to have a look at the books I bought throughout March. There are a lot of them! I went a bit overboard this month, I am not sorry. Not even a little bit.

So in no particular order, the books I bought this month are:

1. Cinder by Marissa Myer
A retelling of Cinderella where Cinders is a cyborg? Yes please!

2. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
This seems to be making its rounds on people's blogs so I thought I'd see what the fuss was about.

3. Half Bad by Sally Green
I am so excited to read this one – a story about good witches vs. bad witches and the boy in between.

4. Fighting Ruben Wolfe by Markus Zusak
I'll be honest, I have no idea what this book is about, I just bought it because it's by Markus Zusak.

5. The Shock of the Fall by Nathan Filer
The blurb on the back of this one grabbed me. It talks about Simon, who “in a couple of pages (will) be dead. And he was never the same after that.”

6. Thirsty by M. T. Anderson
A vampire book. It was recommended by John Green, so I trust his judgement!

7. The Silver Linings Playbook by Matthew Quick
I bought this because it sounded interesting and I needed something to add up the money on an online order so I could qualify for free shipping! Also I'd like to see the film and I do try to read the book of a film first.

8. Tiger Eyes by Judy Blume
I was reminiscing about books I read when I was a teenager and I remember that I loved this, so I thought I'd add it to my shelves again.

9. A Streetcat Named Bob by James Bowen

10. The World According to Bob by James Bowen

I saw these books everywhere recently so I looked up what they were about and bought both books straight away. It's a memoir of a man, a cat and an amazing friendship.  


  1. Cinder! Oh, dude you are going to become SO addicted to this series, let me tell you. And the books only get stronger. Cress, the most recent one was so phenomenal. I fangirled over that book so bad!

  2. I have to say I am so excited to read it! I'm tempted to order the other two books in the series now because I've got a feeling I'm going to love it!

  3. Cinder is a book that I need to pick up soon but I have yet to find it in any store in the UK! I know it is around somewhere. I got Fangirl and Half Bad last week. They were on offer :') nice haul my dear! :) xxx

  4. I've seen it in Waterstone's a few times. I bought my copy from Amazon from a US seller because I wanted a hardback copy though. I'm fickle that way.
