Finding out what happens with the truth when unexpectedly…A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness

A Monster Calls

Yay for free books, am I right?

I managed to get this book for free! At Waterstones, you can get these little stamp cards where you get a stamp for every £10 you spend in store, and when you get 10 stamps, the card will basically become a £10 waterstones voucher. So with my book buying being mostly in Waterstones lately rather than online, and with my inability to buy just one book, it didn’t take long for the stamps to build up and for me to get the £10 Waterstones spending reward.

And since I’d been eyeing up this book for so long…well, might as well get it with the voucher!

December Book Haul

December Haul

So it’s just been Christmas!

I hope everyone had a really lovely day yesterday ❤ I know I did – mine was amazing actually, I got so many surprises that just blew my mind! The main one being…A LAPTOP!!!! I asked for one for my 18th birthday in February but my dad decided to surprise me by giving me one yesterday! Now it will be easier for me to blog since I won’t have to use my dad’s computer on the rare occasions he’s not on it to schedule loads of posts ahead of time 😀

Anyway – back to the post.

Instead of this being just a Christmas haul, I decided to make it my December Haul, because I bought a few books before Christmas. All together there are 17 BOOKS! (EEEEEEKKKK!)

*side note: I apologize for the low quality photographs. I took them late at night on my phone camera so they aren’t as good as I’d have hoped*

So without further ado, I’ll get on with the haul!
