Hello my lovely readers,
If you have read my previous blog post here, you may recognise a couple of books that I haven’t exactly touched on at all in my years a book blogger – and those are graphic novels!
Being a bookworm isn’t exactly the easiest hobby to have. It’s very costly, if I say so myself (while my bank account will second my statement). There are constantly new books being released throughout the year. And you must have them! But you know you shouldn’t. What with the other 500 unread books on your shelf.
I am a massive spender on books. Very rarely do I buy books from charity shops, I always buy from Waterstone’s or some other bookshop online. Then, we get to the point where we just don’t have the funds to buy anymore so we make wishlists!!!
Today, I have decided to share with you guys the books I have on my…
I swear, ones the reading pile that I have reaches single digits I will pile it up sky high with new books! I can’t believe that it’s been three months since the last time I bought a book. I am having withdrawal symptoms!
I keep itching to buy books, and instead I have started to buy more and more notebooks! I mean in a week I went ahead and bough 5 different notebooks. Ones I wont be using until probably in three months time. Depending on how much content I manage to plan in the next few weeks.
It’s madness. Mother even banned me from buying anymore books and notebooks until I finish the ones that are already in my possession.
Hello my lovely readers,
TBR pile are all the rave these days. How can they not be? When all we do all year long is buy books even though we have millions of unread ones sitting on our bookshelves. It’s a love-hate relationship really.
For the past several months, I have refrained from buying books until I have sorted out my TBR pile into a manageable and reasonable size. However, today I am going to be talking about the books I really want to re-read after all this TBR malarkey’s all sorted out.
These are only 6 of the books that I want to re-read, but I have decided that I will only make this like an annual thing for me. To get my TBR pile under-control and then re-read books I have missed. Next year, I will make another list!
Thank you for dropping by and reading my blog!
Buying books is one of the many joys of being a bookworm, and more so when you are a book blogger like myself. Buying books means new books to review! Which I love doing but, it seems I haven’t been able to do this so much as of late. Nevertheless, as much as I love buying books from bookshops… you know, the ones where you get to walk-in and touch all the spines of all these wonderful books and smell the very essence of them… yeah….
I also love buying book from the internet. Because, most of the time they are relatively cheaper to buy online rather than in bookstores. So, today I am going to be sharing with you guys four of my favourite online bookshops!
For me, nothing beats this wonderful bookstore. It is the best of the best, in my opinion. Also, I pretty much established a great rapport between the staff and I. I mean, I spent the majority of my afternoons in the local shop so… they pretty much know who I am now.
I don’t really get my books delivered to my house. I tend to do click & collect with them. I get the books for the price it shows online, and when I spend over £10.00 I get to get stamps which I collect to get a free £10.00 spending voucher on the store once I have collected 10 stamps. It’s a great reward system that keeps me coming back!
A magical find! This gem of an online bookstore is a must visit for any booklovers out there! They have had the cheapest price of books by-far I have encountered! I love it. I discovered this book seller at work… and I have never loved work so much in my entire life.
Most of the books can be bought for a ridiculously cheap price – often it can be up to 20% and other times even to 50%. Which is amazing!
However, you do still have to pay for shipping. But… just think of all the books that you can buy for less money!
Probably one of the more popular online bookstore in the world if bookworms. What with the lowered price and free shipping worldwide.
I have bought a couple of books from the site, and their services are great. I honestly don’t know why I don’t use it more often.
It would be ridiculous of me not to include Amazon! It may not be my number one favourite, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t buy books from the website. I don’t tend to buy paperbacks and hardbacks from Amazon. I use it more to buy e-books. Which isn’t often, by the way. E-books from Amazon are relatively cheap, and if you’re a fan of e-readers and all this high-tech reading… then it’s the best place for you.
I really don’t use it often, because I’m not really a fan of e-books (although I have a kindle). I only ever read e-books when it comes to eARCs. Other than that, I’m not a big fan.
Well, that’s all for today my lovelies. Hope you enjoyed this post, and maybe even learned a little something.
What are your favourite online bookstores?
Hello, and welcome to my blog,
Growing-up in a household of music lovers, I have grown to be one myself. For as long as I can remember, music has been a massive part of my life. And I can’t imagine otherwise. The only difference between my family and I, is that I also love to read. Where my family finds reading a tedious and time consuming activity, and maybe a little unproductive. I find it the best form of entertainment and stimulation for my brain.
For my first ever proper attempt at a discussion blog post here, I have decided to do a little bit of a discussion post. So please feel free to drop a comment! I would love to hear your say in the matter of…
Music + Reading = Yay! or Nay!
As a self-proclaimed bibliophile, and avid music lover… I would have to say YAY! for this one. However, it has to be a certain kind of music. I can’t just listen to any old music when I am reading. I found that it gives my brain too much stimulation and I end up not being able to focus on one or the other at all.
For me, when I am reading, I have to listen to classical music. Ones that you can’t sing to. Of course I have read with music with lyrics in them – but, I just ended up singing along with the song and not really taking in what I was reading.
Where I listened to classical music, I found that I was able to concentrate more on the text. It has this calming effect on me, and I am just able to focus on the book that I have in front of me. My younger brother is quite the improvisation pianist, and I love listening to the music he makes while I read my books.
In fact, right at this moment he is playing the piano!
Do you like listening to music while you read? If so, what kind of music?
Thanks for reading!
Hello lovely readers,
It’s Monday, and we all know how we feel about Mondays. Since, I haven’t been the best at keeping up with my schedule I have decided to make a random post listing the books I have decided to read this year.
With my Goodreads challenge stating I am aiming to read 75 books this year. I kind of want to bump it up to at least 80 books, just so that I could read the majority of the things in my bookshelf. Honestly, I don’t know what I was thinking when I kept on buying books, upon books, when I have a full library of them in my own home.
Mind you, it is a pretty big list. These includes books I have had on my bookshelf for roughly two years now. So you could probably imagine how many I have to read.
Without further ado…
As you can see, in total I have more than 80 books that I want to read this year. I am hoping that this will be possible, otherwise I wont be able to buy anymore books unless I have managed to get this reading pile into a reasonable size.
Hello my lovely readers,
It has been a great start to the year!
It’s that time of the month again, where I try to sum up everything that happened in my life in a single post! Of course, I am talking about our Monthly Wrap-Up. I won’t be faffing around, and ranting… so I’ll just get on with it! Continue reading
