I have a HUGE haul this week. This comes from Random House’s blogger brunch, NetGalley, the Amazon kindle sale, my friend Luna lending me books and spending too much time in Foyles. Oops.


This is me simply sitting behind Luna and I’s book haul after spending time in Foyles book shop in London.

So first things first- Random House. To read my account of my time at Random House click HERE


This book is out now! I’ve finished it and reviewed it already, it’s an incredible read.. review HERE.


I haven’t read any Lauren Kate before, so I’m intrigued.


I’m very intrigued about this book. I’ll try to read it soon!



I like a crime/thriller read every now and again and this seems like a great choice!


I’m so excited about this one. I did a little happy dance when I was approved.


I love Jojo Moyes, she’s one of my auto-buy authors.

Bought in the Amazon Kindle Summer Sale:


I adore Lindsey Kelk. Her books are so easy to read!



These books just look like FUN and they have awesome titles.

Borrowed from Luna’s Library:

Thanks to Luna for these beauties!

Foyles haul:

A lot of these were recommended by Luna. So if I don’t like them I’ll blame her 😉



A book from the queen of chick-lit. Don’t mind if I do!


I’m intrigued by this book!

Phew! So that’s it for this week! Please feel free to leave links to your hauls and I’ll come by and see what you’ve got!

Top Ten Books When You Need Something Light & Fun


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature by The Broke and The Bookish. They love making lists and so do I! This week’s list is Top Ten Books When You Need Something Light & Fun.

I’ve realised that most of my ‘light and fun’ do deal with serious issues so I’ve tried to pick books that made me feel good/laugh out loud. Click on the book images to learn more about the book!

In no particular order..


Watermelon by Marian Keyes- Marian Keyes always writes books which I find so easy to read. They’re nice to pick up because I know I’m going to enjoy them.


The Undomestic Goddess by Sophie Kinsella- Sophie Kinsella is another author that I know I’ll enjoy when I read her. Her books quite often make me laugh out loud.


An Abundance of Katherines by John Green- I’ve read this book recently and enjoyed the more light-hearted John Green!


The Statistical Probability of Love At First Sight by Jennifer E.Smith- It’s such a sweet story. It made me smile.


Adorkable by Sarra Manning- The title is awesome. The book is good fun.


Where Rainbows End by Cecelia Ahern- I loved that this story was made up of text messages, emails, instant messages etc. It was such a sweet read. I love Cecelia Ahern, she’s my favourite ‘chick-lit’ author.


The Cupid Effect by Dorothy Koomson- Dorothy Koomson is a great author. I had read some of her other books before I read this one. I found The Cupid Effect so easy to read.


I Heart London by Lindsey Kelk– I can almost hear my sister sighing from London.. (she hates chick- lit with a passion!) I am a sucker for it though and the ‘I Heart’ series by Lindsey Kelk is perfect chick-lit.


Johnny Be Good by Paige Toon- I often laugh out loud with Paige Toon’s books. Johnny Be Good combines music/rock stars with perfect chick-lit. A winner for me.


An Offer You Can’t Refuse by Jill Mansell- Jill Mansell is a fabulous chick-lit writer. I particularly liked the themes in this book!
