Book Haul #59

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly event hosted on Tynga's Reviews and Letterbox Love is a UK edition hosted by Narratively Speaking. Here we can share what new books we've picked up this past week. There are also lots of other 'book haul' memes out there for you to choose from!

Yes, it's a book haul post. Yes, I said last week I wouldn't be getting any more books for the foreseeable future unless it was bought with a gift certificate, from the library and/or a review copy. Well, I caved and spent gift certificate I had that I was going to try to hang on to but I had book buying withdrawal symptoms! It was nice to walk into a bookstore and leave with books without handing over any cash!


Anne of Green Gables

The Island of Doctor Moreau

The War of the Worlds
I needed a new copy of Anne of Green Gables for reading as my original copy is looking a bit battered, it was a gift from my wonderful mum and one of the first books I actually remember going to the bookshop to buy. I have read most of H G Wells' books but fell in love with these gorgeous Penguin covers and therefore couldn't resist! And that's my haul - no review books, no freebies and no real money spent! So far, so good. Only another 354 days left to go, it's going to be a long year...


  1. I haven't read Anne of Green Gables in years. I like the cover for those editions that you showed. I remember that they had done a series on Disney a few years back. Excellent haul.


  2. I don't think I know this book. But if you bought it for a second time, it should be good.
    Enjoy re-reading it.
