Recent Book Haul

Hi everyone,

Writing this post has definitely made me realise that I have a problem (maybe even a slight obsession) with buying books. This wouldn’t be too much of an issue, but I’m quickly running out of shelf (and floor!) space and my TBR jar is overflowing with books I need to read. Buying books makes me so happy, so I can’t see this stopping any time soon.

Here’s a recent book haul of little treasures I’ve accumulated over the past few weeks

Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie

I’ve been lusting after these Harper Design Classics editions for ages and I finally decided to treat myself! These interactive books are designed by MinaLima (the studio behind the graphics for the Harry Potter film franchise!) This Peter Pan edition is perfect and I can’t wait to collect more – The Jungle Book is definitely on my list!

Sherlock Holmes: The Complete Illustrated Novels by Arthur Conan Doyle

This was a second-hand book shop find! I was so pleased to come across this beautiful edition as I don’t currently own any of Arthur Conan Doyle’s work…and what better place to start!

The Bloody Chamber by Angela Carter

Homage to Catalonia by George Orwell

I’ve very nearly collected all of George Orwell’s works – he’s definitely one of my favourite authors.

Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman

Vox by Christina Dalcher

Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë

I’ve already read this book – it’s one of my favourites – and I couldn’t resist this beautiful cover!

The Night is Darkening Round Me by Emily Brontë and To Be Read at Dusk by Charles Dickens

I love these Penguin Little Black Classics – they’ve introduced me to the work of some of my favourite authors that I never would have known about otherwise.

Votes for Women by Jenni Murray

The Complete Poems by Emily Brontë

There seems to be an Emily Brontë theme in this haul…

Common People: An Anthology of Working Class Writers by Kit de Waal

The Penelopiad by Margaret Atwood

Living the Sutras by Amy Pearce-Hayden and Kelly DiNardo / The Yoga Mind by Rina Jakubowicz

 

Have you read any of these books? What have you bought recently?

Thanks for reading!

Zoë xx
