The time for a student loans payment was here again a few weeks ago and though I (thankfully) haven't done much spending, I've bought a few new books.
Candy - Luke Davis
I found this on eBay for £0.99p! I couldn't believe it! This is another one of those books I've wanted to read for ages but have put off due to the import price, needless to say at that price, I was very eager to win the auction and I did! I actually have started reading this as a "daytime" book (as opposed to my night-time book) and I'm enjoying it, quite a lot.
The Silver Linings Playbook - Matthew Quick
I saw the adaptation with the incredible Jennifer Lawrence in the cinema last month and have been after the book since, luckily, this one was also a snatch on eBay!
The Crimson Petal & The White - Michael Faber
There was a really great BBC adaptation of this a while back (probably about 2 years ago now) and since then the book has always been in the back of my mind. I found this, also on eBay! Sometimes I just like to look in the book category and see what's ending soonest and when I did this the other day, this little gem was in the "buy it now" section, so I did!
The Night Circus - Erin Morgenstern
I've seen a lot about this book on other blogs, so when I spotted it in a charity shop the other day I thought I'd have a closer look, then I spotted the price tag. £0.50p! For a hardback! I couldn't believe it and of course bought it immediately.
One Day - David Nicholls
I remember wanting to see the Anne Hathaway film adapted from this, and it was only £1.50 in a charity shop, so I thought, why not?
Girl Interrupted - Susanna Kaysen
Another eBay find! Again a book I've fancied reading since seeing the adaptation and I found a copy too cheap to miss! Now just to wait for the deliveries!
