Ooooohhhhh how December was a great month, haul-wise.
I’ve been on a book buying ban for THREE MONTHS. I needed to save my money for a whole bunch of different things, and so my book buying was put on hold for a whole three months. And oh how Christmas made up for that 😆
Nearly all of these books were gifts I got for Christmas, since everyone around me knows how much I love books. I’m incredibly grateful for them all and always will be ❤
This post is going to be set out a bit differently. My main version of this is actually on my booktube channel, so below you’ll find a video for this haul. HOWEVER, I’ve also listed the books mentioned below the video, with the synopsis and relevant links, so if you don’t have time (or simply don’t want) to watch the video, you can have a quick glance through instead!
The video has me full of excitement and rambling about why/how I got each book though, so I’d recommend watching it *wink*
Let’s see which books December brought me!

Did anyone else feel like July dragged?
As in, dragged along like a rock tied around a snail shell while the little creature treks it’s way across a mile long field while avoiding circling birds.
Because I sure do.
As always, this is going to be a long post, so get comfy and enjoy!
PS. It’s really rather difficult to hold this many books. They’re heavy and slide around, you know!

In my sorry attempt at reading more classics this year, I wanted to read at least one book from each of the Bronte sisters. Not exactly sure why, it just seemed like a good place to start.
Last year I read Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, and at the beginning of this year I bought Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte, and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte. Since I’m a bit…hesitant…towards classics, I buy the Wordsworth editions rather than some of the prettier covers, because they’re literally £1.99 on Amazon. I love it! Plus, they’re hardly ugly covers, and they look so sleek when you have a few together. I’ll leave a link to them at the end – I really recommend the Wordsworth editions if you want cheap classics!
So finally, I actually read one.
And here we are today. Let’s see how I – a person who very rarely reads classics – fared with this one, shall we?
Let’s talk about Wuthering Heights!
(Excuse my awfully messy hair in this, it was a very long photography session that day 😆 )
Title: Wuthering Heights

Oh how this post shouldn’t exist.
Not when I got so many books last month.
I even told myself not to buy more at the end of the February Book Haul – and I quote:
“I don’t think there’ll be any need for me to buy books for a while now”
Shows how much I listen to myself.
Anyway, I got more books. And here they are.
Let’s jump right in!
