Big December book haul: The aftermath of a 3 month book buying ban

december-haul

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!

My Favourite Book Quotes

quotes

I don’t like just writing up blog award posts and having that as the only post of the day, in case people don’t like reading them, so I decided to add this post today too: My Favourite Book Quotes!

The idea is basically for me to write down some of my favourite book quotes for you guys to see. People’s favourite quotes do tend to show more about their personality, so maybe that will show through this post 🙂

Hopefully this post is interesting to read!

So in no particular order…

So let’s get to it!

How this works:

  • Begin with the month in which you have been tagged and move forward from there!

  • Tag whomever you’d like when you’re finished.. or else you’ll be “it” forever.
  • Have fun, of course!

So let’s do this!

My Life in Books tag!

I was tagged by  Belle Infini  and BOOKS AND OTHER MIRACLES to do this tag, so thank you! 😀

1. Find a book for each of your initials.

Well, my initials are AJW, so here we go…

ACOTARjane eyreWinter

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas/ Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte/ Winter by Marissa Meyer. I don’t actually own Winter yet, but all the other options had boring covers and I think I’ll be getting it at Christmas so close enough, right? Also Jane Eyre turned out to be the only book I own beginning with J. I had to scavenge for it.

2. Count your age along your bookshelf. What book is it?
