Hi everyone a day late! I’m really not very well at the moment, so unfortunately it’s taking me a while to do things and I’m spending a lot of time reading and playing games. I mean, that’s pretty cool, but not when you’re also being sick.

Enough about that and onto the book! My dear friend Chloe offered me some books recently, and I thought I’d tell you about one this week! I’d been eyeing up this book for a while, so when she offered it to me I jumped at the chance. Thank you Chloe!

Fourteen-year-old Calum Brooks has big dreams. One day, he’ll escape this boring life and write movies, proper ones, with massive budgets and A-list stars. For now though, he’s stuck coping alone while his dad works away, writing scripts in his head and trying to stay “in” with his gang of mates at school, who don’t like new kids, especially foreign ones. But when his father’s new Polish girlfriend and her son, Sergei, move in, Calum’s is actually sharing a room with “the enemy!” How’s he going to explain that? Yet when Calum is knocked down in a hit and run and breaks both legs, everything changes. Trapped at home, Calum and Sergei slowly start to understand each other, and even work together to investigate a series of local break-ins. But Calum can’t help feeling like Sergei’s hiding something. Is he really trying to help, or cover up his own involvement in the crime?

Hi everyone! This week I have something so special, a bookish gift. Honestly, they are the best kind of gifts aren’t they? So my lovely friend Dani messaged me a while ago that she had accidentally preordered two copies of A Curse So Dark and Lonely, and asked if I wanted one. Of course I said yes, and she gave it to me yesterday.

I also received a few books from my other also lovely friend Chloe, and I’ll post about them next week! But for now, thank you again Dani and I’m so looking forward to reading this beautiful book.

It once seemed so easy to Prince Rhen, the heir to Emberfall. Cursed by a powerful enchantress to repeat the autumn of his eighteenth year over and over, he knew he could be saved if a girl fell for him. But that was before he learned that at the end of each autumn, he would turn into a vicious beast hell-bent on destruction. That was before he destroyed his castle, his family, and every last shred of hope.
Nothing has ever been easy for Harper Lacy. With her father long gone, her mother dying, and her brother barely holding their family together while constantly underestimating her because of her cerebral palsy, she learned to be tough enough to survive. But when she tries to save someone else on the streets of Washington, DC, she’s instead somehow sucked into Rhen’s cursed world.

It’s time for another Stacking the Shelves post with no books! I’m still on my book-buying ban with 7 more books to go, but I’m honestly really happy about the ban. It’s helping me realise I don’t need to buy as many books as I do and it’s helping me save some money! However, I did buy something book-related and very special this week for Valentines Day.

I bought my other half a gorgeous Harry Potter card that has a little pug on, from here.

And to go alongside? I got him something we both love – Lego!

We’re slowly collecting Harry Potter Lego, and I thought what would be more perfect than this?

I haven’t bought any books yet again this week as I’m still only halfway through my book-buying ban! In case I haven’t explained yet, me and Courtney are on a joint ban where we have to read 20 books before we buy any more. We’ve been tackling this since early December and so far it’s going well.

So again, I haven’t bought any books! But I have borrowed a few from my lovely friend Chloe, to complete my Shadowhunters read. Thanks Chloe!

Simon Lewis has been a human and a vampire, and now he is becoming a Shadowhunter. But the events of City of Heavenly Fireleft him stripped of his memories, and Simon isn’t sure who he is anymore. He knows he was friends with Clary, and that he convinced the total goddess Isabelle Lightwood to go out with him…but he doesn’t know how. And when Clary and Isabelle look at him, expecting him to be a man he doesn’t remember…Simon can’t take it. So when the Shadowhunter Academy reopens, Simon throws himself into this new world of demon-hunting, determined to find himself again. His new self. Whomever this new Simon might be. But the Academy is a Shadowhunter institution, which means it has some problems. Like the fact that non-Shadowhunter students have to live in the basement. And that differences—like being a former vampire—are greatly looked down upon. At least Simon is trained in weaponry—even if it’s only from hours of playing D&D.

Hi guys! This week has been a great one for my bookshelf, for it has been blessed with King of Scars! I ordered a signed, hardback limited edition back in November, so before I started my book-buying ban. I was so excited when I picked it up from the store the other day!

I’ve read the Six of Crows duology and The Language of Thorns but not the Grisha trilogy. But I’m going to be buddy reading King of Scars with my lovely friend Courtney very soon – once I’ve finished City of Heavenly Fire!

Now, as enemies gather at his weakened borders, the young king must find a way to refill Ravka’s coffers, forge new alliances, and stop a rising threat to the once-great Grisha Army.
Yet with every day a dark magic within him grows stronger, threatening to destroy all he has built. With the help of a young monk and a legendary Grisha Squaller, Nikolai will journey to the places in Ravka where the deepest magic survives to vanquish the terrible legacy inside him. He will risk everything to save his country and himself. But some secrets aren’t meant to stay buried—and some wounds aren’t meant to heal.

It’s been another week of not buying books! Honestly, I’m so proud of myself and this ban is helping me realise I probably don’t need to buy books as much as I do. It’s also helping me to wear down my physical TBR, which is now at 62!

The books I’m posting about today are from my last haul before the ban, which was back in early December now. I took my lovely friend Courtney to my favourite second-hand bookshop to show her around, and I ended up buying so many books! This 4 was the bulk of my purchase, as I already had the first 2 and the shop had the last 4. It was obviously fate, right? They were also in like-new condition and cheap!

It’s been a while now since I bought a book (yay for book bans!), and I’m now investing in a different bookish collection – my Pop Funkos.

I thought as I hopefully won’t be talking to you about books I’m buying for a while, I’d let you know about these instead. I’ve built on my Harry Potter collection a lot recently and I couldn’t resist telling you guys about something I picked up this week.

That’s right! I found a 10″ Niffler on a really good sale that I’ve wanted for ages. So I treated myself and added him to my collection! I put him next to a baby Niffler which is normal Pop size for perspective.

I’m posting photos of my Pops on my brand-new Instagram account for those who want to check it out!

Did you buy any books or merch this week?
