Doorstep Delights #1

26 July 2013

So i've decided to create my own book haul meme. purely because then, if i miss weeks (which i will most definitely not do), i won't feel bad...i hope there isn't a meme with this name already..if there is please tell me so i can change the name?
Anyway. BOOKS. well. *cough*
*cough*imayhavebeenalittlelackingonbookhaulsrecently*cough* BUT. i'm here now! I decided against doing two posts (there is A LOT of books to talk about...(I am too lazy to link them all..*sigh*)) because i knew i would never get round to it and then i would have to do a 'third' post and so on....
I was planning on taking pictures of my books as some of them are hardback/ARCs but as that would mean taking out my entire COLOUR CODED book shelf - i'm not. Goodreads covers will have to do. ;P. But i will tell you what format it came in. ;) So..*drum roll* here goes...

  10. OK, that was a LOT of books. You weren't joking in that email you sent me! I look forward to many reviews....;)

    Out of those, I've read TFIOS (IT IS AMAZING AND WILL LIQUIDISE YOUR SOUL), the two Eva Ibbotson ones (both fantastic - I ADORE Eva Ibbotson, and those two are two of my favourites) and Room, which is very interesting and good (there will be a review on my blog on ~checks schedule~ *YES I HAVE A SCHEDULE DON'T JUDGE ME* on Thursday 8th of August!). As for Friday Brown and Eleanor & Park, I want to read them after seeing them raved about on Feed Me Books Now.

    PS CAN YOU TELL THAT I'VE FINALLY PROPERLY REFOLLOWED YOUR BLOGS AND YOUR POSTS NOW APPEAR ON MY FEED?! Expect actual regular comments from now on! :D
