BOOK HAUL: The Birthday Edition

Last week I celebrated my 20th birthday and as friends and family know I love books so much, I received a few giftcards to treat myself.  Of course it only took me all of 3 days to have used them, so I thought I'd share the books that I bought using the gift cards (and treated myself too).

MY TRUE LOVE GAVE TO ME - Various Authors

Having a birthday less than a month before Christmas it goes without saying that one of the books I buy is going to be a festive book and what better festive book than one that contains 12 short stories written by some of my favourite authors. I might even do a whole "12 Days of Christmas" read with this one and slowly enjoy is over the festive period.

DASH & LILY'S BOOK OF DARES - Rachel Cohn & David Levithan 

Buying this I didn't even realise until I'd looked at other blog posts about it that this is also in fact another winter book, perfect for this time of year and let's be honest, who wouldn't love spending winter in New York? I know I would. Maybe I'll have to read this to live vicariously through them instead.


I am yet to read any of Markus Zusak's books however I have only ever heard amazing things about his writing so I feel like I need to get reading. Along with The Book Thief I now have this book to sink my teeth into and with christmas break just around the corner I'll be able to get to it!


I have heard so many good things about this book and have wanted to read it for so long so I finally took the plunge and bought it. I have always wanted to go on a road trip and I think this book will increase that want, I think it sounds like such a fun read.

THIS STAR WON'T GO OUT - EstherLori and Wayne Earl and John Green

It's no secret that I love The Fault In Our Stars and as soon as I saw the book about Esther; a girl who John Green dedicated the book to and who sadly fought and lost her fight with cancer, I knew I wanted to read it. This book is an account of her life written by her and the family and friends around her. It's a true story and I think it's going to be such a good read.

WONDER - R.J. Palacio

I'm adding this book on the end of my birthday book haul despite it actually being a gift to myself before hand which just so happen to arrive on my birthday so it's going in this haul. I have heard so many good things about this book and I'm so excited to read it!


This is another one that I'm adding to the birthday book haul purely for the fact it arrived just after my birthday so I thought I'd feature it. This book sounds really creepy and weird so I'm really intrigued to read it soon.

So I didn't get many books but I'm excited about the ones I did get!!

What books have you hauled recently?
