Book Haul | 9

I realised the other day that I haven't done a book haul on this blog since April. That's a very long time and it's safe to say I've purchased numerous books since then so I figured it was about time I shared some of them with all the fellow book lovers out there!

ME BEFORE YOU BY JOJO MOYES
I actually read this book years ago in 2012 when I was in holiday in France. I'd gone away with my friends family and hadn't brought any books with me, thinking there wouldn't be any time for reading. It turns out her whole family were avid readers and her mum kindly lent me this book to keep me entertained in our down time by the pool! I remember absolutely loving it. I laughed, I cried, I fell head over heels in love with it! And of course I went and saw the film adaptation that was released a few months back, and loved that just as much. Seeing the film reminded me that I didn't actually own a copy of the book myself so of course I picked one up! I'm pretty sure most of you will know the story but just incase you don't, it's about this girl called Louisa Clark who gets a job as a carer for this man named Will, who was in a motorbike accident and is now completely paralysed. It's a love story and honestly, it's absolutely amazing.

AFTER YOU BY JOJO MOYES
Part of the reason I picked up Me Before You is so that I could reread it before diving into the sequel! This came out a while ago but I didn't want to purchase it as a hardback as I like my books to match, so when I saw the paperback copy available online I snapped it up. I don't want to say too much about this as it will completely ruin the first book for anyone who hasn't read it, but I'm honestly so excited to read this. I'm curious to see how the story is going to carry on and whether I'll love it as much as the first one!

ON THE OTHER SIDE BY CARRIE HOPE FLECTHER
When I first heard the synopsis for this story I was super intrigued to see how it would be written and what the story would involve! It's about this woman called Evie who passes away at the age of 82 and when she goes to her own private heaven, she finds that she can't get through the door and that she must unburden herself of any secrets she's kept in order to pass through. The story then follows her as she reveals each secret and revisits her past! I was very curious to see how that story would be told and also the cover is absolutely gorgeous!

CARRY ON BY RAINBOW ROWELL
I love Rainbow Rowell books. I've read two of her novels but I own every single one and I'm so excited to read them. They're just nice, easy, feel good books that I really enjoy reading and all of the covers are beautiful. I'm not sure if this is true or not but I've heard that Carry On is actually a 'carry on' from Fangirl? Correct me if I'm wrong! But because I've not read fangirl yet, I refuse to look at the blurb for this book so unfortunately I can't tell you what it's about. But Rainbow Rowell books are always enjoyable for me so definitely give one of them a try if you haven't already!

ALWAYS WITH LOVE BY GIOVANNA FLETCHER
As well as Rainbow Rowell, I love Gi Fletcher. I think she's an amazing woman and I own all of her books. Her writing has definitely improved as she's written more and more novels, my favourite being Dream A Little Dream, which I actually did a full review for a while back which you can check out here. Always With Love is the sequel to Billy and Me, her first book, and I'm excited to see what this book is like after how much I enjoyed Dream A Little Dream!
