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!

Nikolai Lantsov has always had a gift for the impossible. No one knows what he endured in his country’s bloody civil war—and he intends to keep it that way. 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!

I actually haven’t bought a book for a while (my ban is working finally!), but I want to tell you all about a book I bought over Christmas. I was lucky to receive a book voucher for Christmas, and I went out in the sales and bought this beautiful book! My lovely friend Anna had it for Christmas, and I knew from then on that I really wanted to get a copy.

Hi everyone! As I posted about on Christmas day, I actually was lucky enough to receive a few gorgeous books for Christmas. However, I didn’t tell you the full story because I also bought myself some books for Christmas! You’ve just got to treat yourshelf sometimes, you know?

My boyfriend and I are both Harry Potter fans, and I decided to buy some books to wrap-up for us both.

Twelve Days of Christmas – Day 9

Oops – I missed day 8 of my Twelve Days of Christmas! I was out last night with friends and didn’t have time to post – so now we’re onto day 9. I can’t believe how close we are to Christmas now, who’s excited?!

I bought a book this week that I’m very excited about. I managed to snag a very special edition of Queen of Air and Darkness not so long ago, but I also completed my paperback collection by getting this one.

Twelve Days of Christmas – Day 2

It’s another week of book collecting! I’ve visited the secondhand bookshop near me twice in the past couple of weeks as I’ve been able to show both my lovely friend Courtney and co-blogger Pete my favourite bookshop. It’s been awesome to show them around and I managed to pick up some great finds!

I’ve been looking for second hand copies of The Grisha Trilogy as I love Leigh Bardugo and Six of Crows. As lovely as the new paperbacks are, I still prefer the old ones. So I was very happy to come across this!

Alina Starkov doesn’t expect much from life. Orphaned by the Border Wars, she is sure of only one thing: her best friend, Mal–and her inconvenient crush on him. Until the day their army regiment enters the Fold, a swath of unnatural darkness crawling with monsters. When their convoy is attacked and Mal is brutally injured, Alina reveals a dormant power not even she knew existed. Ripped from everything she knows, Alina is taken to the royal court to be trained as a member of the Grisha, the magical elite led by the mysterious Darkling. With Alina’s extraordinary power in his arsenal, he believes they can finally destory the Fold. Now Alina must find a way to master her untamed gift and somehow fit into her new life without Mal by her side. But nothing in this lavish world is what it seems. As the threat to the kingdom mounts and her dangerous attraction to the Darkling grows, Alina will uncover a secret that could tear her heart–and her country–in two.
