I can’t stop buying books! I think it’s because my birthday is next month so I keep looking at books to go on a wishlist, and I end up buying them! Anyway, this book is because I recently read Shatter Me, and I couldn’t wait to carry on with the series. I ordered a second-hand copy of Unravel Me online, and I was so worried they would send me the wrong edition! But I’m very happy to say they sent me the right one and my books match.

Before I start, did you see my post yesterday? I’m hosting an international Harry Potter giveaway! 

I bought two books this week, which is probably 2 more than I should! My physical TBR definitely hasn’t gone down for a while…so I should really put myself on a proper ban. But to be honest, with my birthday coming up next month I don’t see that happening! Anyway, I couldn’t resist this weeks purchase because they were on a 2 for £7 Amazon sale including postage!

I’ve had the first two of this series on my shelf for a while, and I knew I wouldn’t read it without completing the trilogy first.

I started this collection when I met Cassandra Clare a couple of years ago, and my edition of City of Bones is signed. So I’m definitely going to collect these editions eventually, may as well start with this one while it’s on sale!

I’m happy to say I didn’t buy any books this week but I did obtain a few! My mum came home with a box of books from work, and my boyfriend and I found some treasures in the collection.

The son of a zookeeper, Pi Patel has an encyclopedic knowledge of animal behavior and a fervent love of stories. When Pi is sixteen, his family emigrates from India to North America aboard a Japanese cargo ship, along with their zoo animals bound for new homes.
The ship sinks. Pi finds himself alone in a lifeboat, his only companions a hyena, an orangutan, a wounded zebra, and Richard Parker, a 450-pound Bengal tiger. Soon the tiger has dispatched all but Pi, whose fear, knowledge, and cunning allow him to coexist with Richard Parker for 227 days while lost at sea.

I’ve heard mixed opinions of this book but I enjoyed the movie, so I’m going to give it a go.

The beloved animation classic by legendary Studio Ghibli director Hayao Miyazaki, My Neighbor Totoro is now retold in novel form. This prestige, hardcover edition features original illustrations by Miyazaki himself, accompanying a story written by veteran children’s book author Tsugiko Kubo. Sure to delight both existing fans and new readers! Eleven-year-old Satsuki and her sassy little sister Mei have moved to the country to be closer to their ailing mother. While their father is working, the girls explore their sprawling old house and the forest and fields that surround it. Soon, Satsuki and Mei discover Totoro, a magical forest spirit who takes them on fantastic adventures through the trees and the clouds–and teaches them a lesson about trusting one another.

I also found this really cute hardcover book which is a novel edition of My Neighbour Totoro! I love Studio Ghibli so I’m really excited to pick this up.

This book marks the 3rd book I’ve bought this month which means I’m doing pretty well! We’ll see in my August wrap-up on Friday whether I buy any more, but hopefully I can stick to just 3.

Anyway, this week I bought the Ravenclaw edition of Harry Potter to add to our collection!

I haven’t posted one of these in almost a month, which is probably a good thing as it means I haven’t bought books recently. But after talking with my boyfriend about which Harry Potter books we wanted to add to our collection (see more here), I decided to do a little shopping.

After visiting a few supermarkets, I ended up with these:

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child - Parts One and Two (Harry Potter, #8)

Goodreads | Amazon

It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children.
While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.

When Magizoologist Newt Scamander arrives in New York, he intends his stay to be just a brief stopover. However, when his magical case is misplaced and some of Newt’s fantastic beasts escape, it spells trouble for everyone…

Both of these screenplays are ones I wanted to read soon and they look gorgeous sat on the shelf next to each other, both shining with gold!

It might look like I bought a lot this week but I was really lucky because of one thing! Towards the end of my college course, I won a £50 gift card that could be spent at one of my favourite bookshops here in the UK – Waterstones.

I’ve decided I really want to carry on with this series soon, so as soon as I saw this on the buy-one-get-one-half-price table, I added it to the basket.

Another book I saw on that table is this one! It has a beautiful cover and beautiful colour-edges pages, so I couldn’t resist. (total cover buy. oops)

I’d just had this book recommended to me so I picked it up and finished it within a couple of days! You can see my review on Tuesday.

I read this one next as I’ve wanted it for a while, and I just finished it! You’ll be able to read my review later in the week.

I’ve had this book on my TBR for a long time, and I knew I wanted this cover so I was happy to find it really cheap!

I told my boyfriend to pick a book too, and we both decided we wanted to read this a while ago. I’m glad we finally picked it up and can both read it!

Again, I’m trying so hard to control my book buying addictions, but temptations go further than just online newsletters. My boyfriend and I recently re-visited a local secondhand bookshop and I knew I would find something!

As it turns out, I found less than expected but I am excited about what I did find. I decided a while back that I’d really like to read Game of Thrones sometime, and I also knew exactly which editions I wanted. Look at the spines on these – aren’t they gorgeous?

‘When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die. There is no middle ground’
Summers span decades. Winter can last a lifetime. And the struggle for the Iron Throne has begun.
From the fertile south, where heat breeds conspiracy, to the vast and savage eastern lands, all the way to the frozen north, kings and queens, knights and renegades, liars, lords and honest men . . . all will play the Game of Thrones.

I’m also excited to say I’ve actually started to watch the series with my boyfriend! I’m very happy to finally join the fandom and I’m really starting to get hooked 🙂
