When I say Mini Haul I mean it, but I am starting to run out of space for more books, so I am quite limited on what I can buy, but I am going to share with you my latest purchase and why I bought these four books.
The first book I bought is 'What Alice Forgot' by Liane Moriarty, I wanted to buy this because I saw a Review by Jennifer on her blog 'That's What She Read'
She wrote such a lovely review about this book that I wanted to purchase it instantly.
' It's about a woman named Alice. She's a mother, wife and apparently a go-getter. At least, that's what people tell her. Because if you were to ask Alice about her life, she'd tell you she's 28, married to Nick and pregnant with their first baby.But then she wakes up on the floor of a gym, in the middle of a spin class. Everyone around her is telling her quite a different story. She's not 28, she's 38, she has 3 children and she and Nick are in the middle of a heated divorce.'
Quoted from Jennifers blog
I love anything to do with the time travelling, parallel universe sort of genre, it is really interesting and I have read similar sort of books before, one being 'Step Back In Time' by Ali McNamara which I did a review about last year which you can find:Here.
The next book I bought was Blue Lily,Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater this is part of a series, the first being 'The Raven Boys' so when I saw this I had to buy it, because I hate a collection being incomplete, also I really love Maggie's books, she is one of my favourite authors, after reading 'The Shiver Series' I have read every book she has ever written you can check out that series:Here.
Now this book 'Watermelon' by Marian Keyes really stood out to me as it was on Waterstones recommend shelf, I really liked the cover and took a look at the blurb and liked what I read.
'At twenty-nine, fun-loving, good-natured Claire has everything she ever wanted: a husband she adores, a great apartment, a good job. Then, on the day she gives birth to her first baby, James visits her in the recovery room to inform her that he's leaving her. Claire is left with a beautiful newborn daughter, a broken heart, and a body that she can hardly bear to look at in the mirror. So, in the absence of any better offers, Claire decides to go home to her family in Dublin. To her gorgeous man-eating sister Helen, her soap-watching mother, her bewildered father. And there, sheltered by the love of an (albeit quirky) family, she gets better. A lot better. In fact, so much better that when James slithers back into her life, he's in for a bit of a surprise.'
I have been reading quite a few romances lately and this just caught my eye, so I snapped it up and as it was recommended why not ey?
And last but not least 'My True Love Gave To Me' Edited by Stephanie Perkins, now this is a collection of short romance stories, and I love a good old romance novel, come out who doesn't love P.S I Love You?
And the cover and pages were so pretty, I couldn't help myself, I think this shall keep me pretty entertained and I can't wait to get started on it!
There we go, four books that really stood out to me, it has been so nice to blog again as I unfortunately fell ill with a cold and chest infection this week and I am now on the road to recovery.
