aww did we get stuff?:

We might have got stuff:



YAY FOR STUFF! I actually got only one book I haven’t read before, and my father has a copy somewhere, but the key word there is SOMEWHERE. So why so many I’ve already read/own? Because they were pretty! And 50p because they were in the children’s section this year.

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy: A Trilogy in Four Parts by Douglas Adams

My dad’s copy is somewhere…

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson

I got 2 and 3 on the swap-case at work, I’ve got the ‘fourth’ as a kindle book, thought I may want to re-read them.

Northern Lights, The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass Collectors Editions by Philip Pullman

I know I got the Subtle Knife last year, but this was a set! And I thought this one may be in better condition. Also, I felt bad leaving it there alone…

The Magicians Nephew, Prince Caspian, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, The Silver Chair and The Last Battle by C.S. Lewis

Why didn’t they have The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe and The Horse and His Boy?! Aww so pretty!

Daughters of Darkness and Dark Angel by L.J. Smith

Sad there was only 2 and 4 there (where’s three?? Got one last year!) I’m re-collecting these because my originals are….yeah:





And what did I get you ask? Well I got:

A Huge Chunk of Anne McCaffrey’s Dragonriders of Pern Series

I’ve been eyeing up Dragonflight for ages now and when I saw the set in a box under a table I just had to grab them. The majority of my goodreads friends that have read this have give this series 4-5 Stars and Dragonflight’s overall rating is currently 4.09 stars which is pretty good considering over 90,000 people have rated it! Can’t wait to get started on this series.

Deep Secret by Diana Wynn Jones

Never heard of this series before but I know she wrote Howl’s Moving Castle. This clearly says it’s an adult series so I’m quite excited to see what happens when she writes adult fiction.

I Let You Go by Clare Mackintosh

I’ve seen this so many times on goodreads but I couldn’t remember if that was in a good or bad way. The blurb sounded good anyway so I thought I’d check it out.

Blood Bound by Rachel Vincent

I recently finished Rachel Vincent’s The Stars Never Rise duology and loved it so I picked this up to see what else she had to offer.

Us by David Nicholls

It’s been a few years since I read One Day but I still remember that book so vividly that when I saw David Nicholls on the cover I had to pick it up. His writing was amazing, here’s hoping Us is just as good.

All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven

I remember that this won the 2015 Goodreads Choice Award for Young Adult Fiction and thought I may as well see what it’s all about. It doesn’t sound like my kind of thing but I’m willing to give it a go anyway.

Comfort and Joy by India Knight

This was an impulse buy. I’ve never heard of it, never heard of the author and I only briefly read the blurb but it looked like a happy-go-lucky Christmas story and I want something cheery at the moment.

Under Heaven by Guy Gavriel Kay

I’ve heard so many great things about Guy Gavriel Kay and I wanted to read one of his books for ages but this is the first time I’ve seen one! So I grabbed it quick! May also lend this to my brother afterwards as it sounds like his kind of book.
