July Book Haul

I think I pretty much bought most the books I was after in charity shops last month so this month my book haul is a little smaller

Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
I bought this very beautifully illustrated book from (recommend!) and it's just so beautiful it must be displayed! I've not read Alice in Wonderland in many many years so  I will be reading it to my daughters soon

Howls Moving Castle by Diana Wynn Jones
I got half way reading through this book two years ago and things came along and I didn't finish it. I really want to so I will reread from the beginning and finally finish it this time! It's very different to the film (which I love!)

FanGirl by Rainbow Rowell
I read this book in June and I did quite like it- I had some issues with it but I do like Rowell's writing style and her book covers are just so lovely and I had to get this book in hardback! (also from

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell
Again, same reason as before- I had to get this book!

Miss peregrine series by Ransom Riggs
I bought the second and third book after reading the first book and loving it! I am currently reading the second book and thoroughly enjoying it!

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
Catcher in The Rye by J.D Salinger
Two of those most infamous classic books that everyone must read. I want to try and read at least one 'classic' book that everyone must read before they die per month.

The Casebook of Victor Frankenstein by Peter Ackroyd
The main reason I bought this book is because it is set in Headington, Oxford, England which is where I grew up and where my parents live LOL



  1. I love them all but that Alice book, oh my goodness. I love it. SO PRETTY!! xx

  2. I've been wanting to read Howl's Moving Castle for so long now!
    I love beautifully illustrated books. I just want to collect them all!

  3. I bought the Miss Peregrine series this month, can't wait to get stuck in. Fab haul. Thanks for sharing with #ReadWithMe
