March Book Haul & World Book Night Competition

I've been buying books again, oops. I haven't even read most of what I bought in my February haul, but I couldn't resist getting a few more. I've been meaning to read on the train to and from work a little more, but the train makes me so sleepy that I struggle usually. Anyway, here's what I've picked up recently, and why. 


Heartbreak Hotel by Deborah Moggach
I just loved the sound of this one, and she also wrote The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.

Vanishing Act by Jodi Picoult
I can't resist a Jodi Picoult book.

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
I've had so many recommendations for this one, and have seen so many people reading it, so couldn't resist.

The Twins by Saskia Sarginson
This book sounded great.

The Rosie Effect by Graeme Simison
After reading The Rosie Project, I couldn't wait for this to come out. I also had to wait an extra few months for it to come out in paperback. 

Paris for One by Jojo Moyes
Yes, another Jojo Moyes book. After reading The Girl You Left Behind last month, I couldn't resist picking up this quick read when I saw it.


Now, the lovely people that run World Book Night have let me have a bunch of books to share with you. World Book Night is on April 23rd, to coincide with the international day of the book, and it's aim is to inspire people to read, that often don't. I've got 10 of my choice from this years twenty books When God Was A Rabbit by Sarah Winman to give away to ten of you that live in the UK. To enter, just follow the instructions below.

T&Cs: Competition is open to UK residents only.

  1. I've had The Night Circus for ages and haven't gotten around to reading it yet - the size of it is a bit daunting! I'd love to hear your thoughts on it if you finish it!

  2. Nothing like a Jodi Picoult book for when you want to sit around crying and shouting "whyyyyyy?!?!?!?" at the universe! :D

  4. I capture the Castle by Dodie Smith. I love all of the characters, and could certainly relate to some of the plot as a teenager. Also loved the film adaptation of it as well.

  5. Cannot name one book. I have enjoyed so many over years but I have recently enjoyed The Mouseproof Kitchen which made me laugh and cry as I read it. Always a sign of a good book in my opinion :)

  6. I love Intensity by Dean Koontz. I've never been so scared whilst reading a book and it had some amazing twists which I never guessed.

  13. Stephen King's Dark Tower series is one of my favourites. Why? Because it's just so HUGE! Would it be wrong to compare it to The Lord of the Rings but set through parallel dimensions and with gunslingers,witches,did-a-chicks and an evil train who loves riddles,oh and vampires!

  14. My favourite book is On The Road - first read it when I was about 14 and it made me dream of the days when I would be able to go travelling. It's a book that really feels tied to my spirit.

  15. I've just finished read the good girl by Mary Kubica, such a brilliant read couldn't put it down and a great twist at the end. I love reading and must read at least 3 books a week so my Favorite constantly changes 😀

  17. I love the Harry Potter series. It's brought so much joy to our family. We recently had to replace our set of books because they were losing pages and falling apart having been read so much! Thank you.
