Book Haul – March 2019

Hey guys! I’m back with another book haul for March. I really tried to restrain myself this month when it came to book buying and it kind of worked! But then again, I didn’t actually finish a book in March so we’re still just adding to that TBR 😅

This month I bought:

  • Everything I Know About Love by Dolly Alderton

Blurb: Award-winning journalist Dolly Alderton survived her twenties (just about) and in Everything I Know About Love, she gives an unflinching account of the bad dates and squalid flat-shares, the heartaches and humiliations, and most importantly, the unbreakable female friendships that helped her to hold it all together. Glittering with wit, heart and humour, this is a book to press into the hands of every woman who has ever been there or is about to find themselves taking that first step towards the rest of their lives.

Genre: Non-fiction, Biography

I’d had my eye on this book since it was released in hardback but kept finding excuses not to buy it. When it finally came out in paperback I couldn’t help myself! Bought just in time for a holiday to Amsterdam it made perfect plane reading and really helped to put a recent break up in perspective.

  • The Queen’s Rising by Rebecca Ross

Blurb: One day, a queen will rise… Brienna Colbert knows what it’s like to be an outsider. Cast aside from her family in the northern kingdom of Maevana, she’s been raised in the south. While some are born with a talent for one of the five passions – art, music, dramatics, wit and knowledge – Brienna struggles to discover hers until she chooses knowledge, and with it comes a very unusual skill. When a dangerous plot against the northern kingdom comes to light, Brienna’s passion proves invaluable to a rebellion she never ever knew existed. Will she choose loyalty to her present or her past? For a queen is destined to rise and reclaim the northern throne, and Brienna might just be the one who holds the key to it all…

Genre: Fiction, Fantasy

This book was recommended to me by a colleague who was super excited to pick up book two in this series. I love a bit of royalty mixed in with my fantasy worlds so it was a no brainer!

  • The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman

Blurb: Nobody Owens, known to his friends as Bod, is a normal boy. He would be completely normal if he didn’t live in a graveyard, being raised and educated by ghosts. There are dangers and adventures for Bod in the graveyard. But it is in the land of the living that the real danger lurks for it is there that the man Jack lives and he has already killed Bod’s family.

Genre: Fiction, YA, Horror, Fantasy

I’m not sure how I’ve made it this far without reading any Neil Gaiman but after seeing this book so many times, I couldn’t help but buy it for myself. It’s such an interesting premise that I’m excited to see how this story pans out!

What books did you purchase this month? Did you pick up any of these books too? Or maybe you’ve already read these books! What did you think? I’d love to know! 

You can always find me over on Instagram and Twitter if you’d like to discuss any of these books (or any others that I’ve featured) in more detail 😌📚

  1. I’ve also been trying to restrict myself… which I somehow forgot about and just got them from the library instead. Which helps the bank, but not my ever growing TBR pile! Queen’s Rising looks like a really good book – all of these do actually. Happy reading!

  2. The Graveyard Book looks interesting. I’ve only read a couple of Neil Gaiman but The Ocean at the End of the Lane is worth a look as well x
