This is actually a very belated Stacking the Shelves post for some books I bought a while ago but haven’t managed to post about yet. So, after the release of the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before movie, which I believe was around a year ago now, I decided to reread the first book and purchase the hardback set I’d wanted for so long. I read the first book years ago and although I enjoyed it, didn’t enjoy it as much as the movie (*gasp*).

Unfortunately, as soon as I decided to take the plunge and purchase these beauties, of course they went out of stock everywhere. I ended up waiting until sometime early this year to finally buy them, but LOOK. I’m so happy I finally took the plunge just to have these on my shelves, even if they were a little expensive for me!

I’m looking forward to rereading the first book and delving into the others fairly soon!

Hi everyone! If you follow me on Instagram you may know that I was in London last weekend to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child (I promise I will blog about this VERY soon)! I had a really good time and also got to visit a few bookshops, including my new favourite, Foyles Charing Cross. I was so overwhelmed by the wide variety of YA, and so many different editions, I honestly nearly cried (how sad am I).

It was so hard to stop myself from buying ALL of the books, but I managed to pick up just one American edition I’ve been wanting since before it’s release – Emergency Contact. I adore this cover and the floppy US edition also has a gorgeous metallic gold strip down the side! How could I resist?

For Penny Lee high school was a total nonevent. Her friends were okay, her grades were fine, and while she somehow managed to land a boyfriend, he doesn’t actually know anything about her. When Penny heads to college in Austin, Texas, to learn how to become a writer, it’s seventy-nine miles and a zillion light years away from everything she can’t wait to leave behind.
Sam’s stuck. Literally, figuratively, emotionally, financially. He works at a café and sleeps there too, on a mattress on the floor of an empty storage room upstairs. He knows that this is the god-awful chapter of his life that will serve as inspiration for when he’s a famous movie director but right this second the seventeen bucks in his checking account and his dying laptop are really testing him.
When Sam and Penny cross paths it’s less meet-cute and more a collision of unbearable awkwardness. Still, they swap numbers and stay in touch—via text—and soon become digitally inseparable, sharing their deepest anxieties and secret dreams without the humiliating weirdness of having to see each other.

I’m in a very Morganville place with my reading at the moment, and I’m on book 9 of this 16 book series! I’ve managed to collect the series almost completely second hand (none were full price, anyway), but I was missing book 14. Now I’ve finally ordered a second hand copy, along with Midnight Alley!

You might be wondering why I need another edition of book 3…but I have my reasons. For some reason, when I ordered this a while ago, they sent me a SMALLER version. That’s right, I have the whole 16 book series in standard paperback, and then a smaller version of the third book. Ugh. I’m just hoping they don’t do it again with this version, as I checked and double checked the ISBN!

Hello readers! I know – I finally bought a book again. After 4 months of being on a book ban, I have now finished 20 books and I’m buying books once again. It was so weird walking into a shop yesterday and actually purchasing books, but I’m so happy!

However, I do think I’m going to be more careful about what I’m buying and how much I spend on books. Being on a ban has made me realise that I don’t need to buy the amount of books I need to, and I can be satisfied with the ones I have waiting for me on my shelf!

Charlie Spring is in Year 10 at Truham Grammar School for Boys. The past year hasn’t been too great, but at least he’s not being bullied anymore, and he’s sort of got a boyfriend, even if he’s kind of mean and only wants to meet up in secret.
Nick Nelson is in Year 11 and on the school rugby team. He’s heard a little about Charlie – the kid who was outed last year and bullied for a few months – but he’s never had the opportunity to talk to him. That is, until the start of January, in which Nick and Charlie are placed in the same form group and made to sit together.
They quickly become friends, and soon Charlie is falling hard for Nick, even though he doesn’t think he has a chance. But love works in surprising ways, and sometimes good things are waiting just around the corner…

I read the Webcomic (Tumblr here and Tapas here) of Heartstopper after Chloe recommended it to me a while ago and absolutely fell in love. Thank you Chloe! Honestly, this comic for me was one of those things I didn’t expect to fall so hard for. The art style is beautiful, and I knew I needed the physical version, not just because I’m meeting Alice tomorrow with Chloe!

It’s so soft and fluffy and so adorable. I loved it, and I read through this version this afternoon with a smile on my face.

Hi guys! Sorry I haven’t been around the past few days, I honestly have no excuse apart from getting over my illness but I’m back 🙂

I have another book to talk about today which was a gift from my lovely friend Chloe! She offered me Flame in the Mist, which I gratefully accepted as I absolutely loved The Wrath and the Dawn when I read it years ago! I think it’s going to be a while until I manage to read this, but I’m excited for it.

The daughter of a prominent samurai, Mariko has long known her place–she may be an accomplished alchemist, whose cunning rivals that of her brother Kenshin, but because she is not a boy, her future has always been out of her hands. At just seventeen years old, Mariko is promised to Minamoto Raiden, the son of the emperor’s favorite consort–a political marriage that will elevate her family’s standing. But en route to the imperial city of Inako, Mariko narrowly escapes a bloody ambush by a dangerous gang of bandits known as the Black Clan, who she learns has been hired to kill her before she reaches the palace.
Dressed as a peasant boy, Mariko sets out to infiltrate the Black Clan and track down those responsible for the target on her back. Once she’s within their ranks, though, Mariko finds for the first time she’s appreciated for her intellect and abilities. She even finds herself falling in love–a love that will force her to question everything she’s ever known about her family, her purpose, and her deepest desires.

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.

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!
