New Books 6/01/2020

As promised here are my new books that I got over New Year when visiting Bath. We always visit my favourite bookshop Topping and Company because it always has some very special books and quite often signed editions. Plus when my poor husband is exhausted from following me around the bookshop and carrying the books I’ve already chosen they always offer him a mug of tea.

So here are the books I bought, I tried to be restrained so there are not as many books as I would usually go for.

Goodbye to All Cats by P. G. Woodhouse

New Books: 17th December 2019

Hello!

So today has been a nice quiet day with a little bit of teaching thrown into the mix. Today also involved buying new books! This was not planned, we went into the supermarket for a few things and I came out with three new books.

Here are the new books:-

A Midwinter Promise by Lulu Taylor

51d8TfbQqAL._SX328_BO1,204,203,200_

I’ve read a few books by Lulu Taylor and have always enjoyed them so I am looking forward to reading this.

 

A Perfect Cornish Christmas by Phillipa Ashley

51gandVCmnL._SX326_BO1,204,203,200_

After just finishing ‘A Christmas on the Little Cornish Isles’ I thought I would give another of Phillipa Ashley’s books a try and hope it is as good.

 

A Wedding in December by Sarah Morgan

No reason for this choice other than I liked the sound of it. Fingers crossed it proves to be good.

 

So here are my new books! Please drop me a comment if you have read any of them and tell me what you thought.

Christmas Book Haul

Hello!

Today I have had a wonderful day off, as I spent the morning reading and then went and spent the day in Birmingham book shopping and exploring the German Christmas Market.

I had a lot of fun in Waterstones and bought quite a few books and my husband also got some as well so the lady on the check out was quite surprised at the varied selection. I also had a lot of fun looking at the children’s section.

 

Here are my lovely books:-

I bought this book because my best friend, nicknamed Tufty Seal highly recommends Adam Kay as a writer so I am really looking forward to reading this book.

 

AVGEC

I saw this today and just had to buy it as I absolutely love the film!

I must admit I got this because the cover was pretty, I know very shallow, but sometimes a pretty cover is all you need to buy a book.

 

51zG87dl5kL._SX325_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg

I bought this because I loved the last book with Murder Christmas stories I hope this one does not disappoint.

Another book from the Christmas table at Waterstones. I hope it does not disappoint.

This book I got in the children’s section. I always get a version of The Nutcracker each year and this year I got this little one with a pop up surprise at the end!

 

I also got two very pretty decorations from the German Market.

 

Please drop me a comment if you have read any of the books.

Happy Reading.

Book Haul 28/10/2019

Hello everyone!

Well today is my first day of half term and I celebrated by having a lie in and a leisurely day. I had to run into our nearest town to run some errands and my husband suggested visiting Waterstones for a browse. Well a browse is something that never happens with me, it always ends in buying books. I was just going to buy Now You See Them by Elly Griffiths but my husband said that Wakenhyrst by Michelle Paver looked good so I ended up buying another book because it was on buy one get one half price.

Not too much damage with just three books bought.
