Book Haul | 2

I figured it was probably about time I did another book haul as I've purchased quite a few books over the last few months so I have a lot to share with you guys. I'm so excited to read these books and they all look so pretty on my shelves!

The first two books I've bought recently are Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell, and another book called All The Bright Things by Jennifer Niven (which is currently at my boyfriends house so I couldn't include a picture in this haul). I've already read Eleanor and Park and I really enjoyed it! It's about two young teenagers and how falling in love at that age feels like the most wonderful thing in the world. I'm also very happy that it packed a lot of other events in it to surround the love story so I would highly recommend this book!
The next book I picked up was The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion. I'd spotted this book around the time it first came out (which I know was a while ago because the sequel has just been released) but I never seemed to pick it up whenever I went shopping. I've heard quite a few people talk about this book and they all seemed to really enjoy it so I thought I'd give it a go. Apparently it's meant to be quite funny so I'm hoping I like it! It's about a man who creates a project to find himself the perfect wife, but then Rosie stumbles into his life and is the complete opposite to everything he thought he wanted. 
I then purchased Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell, and the amount of hype I have heard around this book is unreal. So many people adore it so of course I had to pick it up and now that I've read Eleanor and Park and loved that I'm very excited to be reading Fangirl soon!

The next lot of books I have to show you are two boxsets!
The first boxset I got was The Maze Runner series by James Dashner. I'd recently been to the cinema to see the film of the first book and I loved it. I wasn't actually aware it was a book series so when I saw these I had to get them. I managed to get all 4 for just £10! 
I then picked up this other boxset which is the entire series of Narnia books by C.S.Lewis. I've never read any of the Narnia books but I have seen the film of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, so when I saw this boxset of all 7 books for just £8... how could I say no to that? I'm hoping to get up to scratch with reading the classic stories that EVERYONE has read, so lets start with these!

The next two books are ones that I'm sure many of you reading this will already have heard about! The first is Girl Online by Zoe Sugg, which I've already read and really liked! It's follows a young teenage girl as she writes, travels and falls in love, and it's a lovely story.
The next is Love Tanya by Tanya Burr which I've not read yet but I plan to hopefully get to it soon. Love Tanya is more of an autobiography type book, with chapters like 'growing up' and tips on fashion/make-up and all things like that so it's probably one that I'm going to flick through when I get time rather than read from start to finish in one go but I'm looking forward to reading it nonetheless!

I recently discovered a booktuber called Kassidy Voinche, whose channel you can find HERE, and as I was watching a few of her book hauls and review videos, I noticed these books in the background sitting on her shelves. They kept catching my eye in each video I watched so I decided to look them up and ended up buying them pretty much straight away! They are part of a series called The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. I believe that Cinder is a re-telling of Cinderella, Scarlet is Little Red Riding Hood and Cress is Rapunzel. I am a sucker for anything fairytale related so these sounded right up my street. I believe there's also a fourth book called Fairest which has just been released, which I plan to purchase if I enjoy the series. I am so excited to read these books so hopefully I'll be moving onto them very soon!

Let me know in the comments what books you're currently reading and if you're enjoying them!
