February Book Haul

So I have completely given up on the book buying ban as it’s just not going to happen. I said in my January wrap up that I would try to not buy any books during the month of February since it is a relatively short month but that didn’t happen. It was close though as I only went book mad last week and this week. I took a trip into town and couldn’t resist going to my favourite second hand bookstore which ended up with me walking out with around 10 books. Then a friend recommended a book to me that I couldn’t find anywhere and had to order online for a respectable price.


My final and last excuse for my book buying splurge was explained in my weekend reads update…The Hunger Games. Although I got an e-copy for my phone I found it difficult to properly enjoy the book so I stumbled across the entire trilogy on offer in a bookstore and couldn’t resist.

Any of you that have been strong enough to resist buying books at any point, I congratulate you. I have never experienced anything so hard especially when you find a book you want at a good price which in turn starts the snowball rolling. Below are the books I gathered this month with a link to goodreads, hopefully you’ll find something you might even like or if you have read one of them, why not leave a comment on what you thought of the book. Wish me luck I make it through the last few days of the month with what pennies I have left.
