Book Haul | November 2017

There is still a week and a half left of November but all the books I got this month have arrived and there are no more plans to order more. I'm gonna save you the whole 'I tried my best to buy less but it didn't happen' excuse because this time around I was very much aware of the books I bought.

Tome Topple TBR | Round 5

Tome Topple readathon has been around for a while but I've never participated before. Until now. I just felt like reading some of the longest books on my TBR and this just gave me the perfect excuse for that. Essentially, the readathon is about reading books that are over 500-pages long. It runs from the 17th to the 30th of November and there are some challenges that people can follow - I'm not following all but I did pick up some books on my shelves that can be used for some of them.

Book Review | The Diary of a Bookseller by Shaun Bythell

The Diary of a Bookseller by Shaun Bythell {Goodreads}
Published by Profile Books in 2017
Hardback edition; 320 pages {BookDepository}

The Diary of a Bookseller came out last September and I just had to have a copy. And so I bought one. The title is pretty much self-explanatory: a diary written by Shaun Bythell, who owns The Bookshop - Scotland's largest second-hand bookshop; and who decided to narrate what it is like to work in his bookshop during a whole year.

Book Haul | October 2017

You know how every single month we, book bloggers, wonder... how on earth did I end up with so many books? Well, I have the answer for my problem. I realised every time I feel down or stressed, I go online to check on books and I always add something to my cart and I always press buy. And here we are: 11 books (the fact that I read 12 books in October makes me feel slightly better).

Reading Diary | October 2017

Oct, 5th - 20:45

Finished the first book of the month: The Glass Town Game, the newest release by Catherynne M. Valente. It's a fantasy novel about the Brontë siblings. Basically, they are sucked into their own game. A bit like Jumanji if you like but the whole book is filled with references to their novels and their characters and it's a fantastic read.

I'm also making my way through My Absolute Darling by Gabriel Tallent and I can tell you now this is gonna be a difficult one for me. It disgustes me most of the time and I've cried several times but at the same time I wanna keep reading because I wanna know where the story is heading.
