  1. Oh wow, great haul!! Some of them look so good :) Enjoy.

  2. Dude, your shelves! So many books! :)
    Love your accent ^^
    Nice haul! I need to start on Rowell's and Perkins' books.
    Happy reading!

  3. I love how clear your shelves are, mine are a riot. Those paper dolls were very popular when we where young and had no money for proper dolls.


    1. Hah the other shelves are a right mess. These are fairly new so have been kept in an orderly fashion. I've started sorting out the red Billys this weekend but it will be a mammoth task.

  4. I love your shelves! One of these days I'll be daring enough to do a vlog! Great additions. I hear amazing things about Anna and the French Kiss & Eleanor and Park

  5. Great haul. happy reading :)


  6. Great vlog :) You had a good week of books and yes! I remember paper dolls and even my teen had a book. Love the slippers, keep you warm in winter!

  7. Ooh Kushiel's Dart - I've heard interesting things about that one and bought a copy ages ago. I really need to get round to reading it at some point. :-) Some great looking goodies this week, hope you enjoy them all!

  8. Also... paper dolls! I totally remember those. ^^ They have those tab things on the clothes so you can kinda fold the clothes around them, but then they have nothing on at the back! Hehe... kind of a strange toy, when you think about it.

  9. Great haul! I read Anna and the French Kiss last year and loved it but be warned you will want to visit France when you do! Hope you enjoy your new books :)

  10. Great haul! The Clearing seems really good, I am going to check it out for myself. I really want to read Anna and the French Kiss, I've heard so many awesome things about it. Enjoy all your new books :)

  11. Hahaha you are so cute! Hope you enjoy your books hun - I got Eleanor and Park too so am really hoping to love it. Looked for Anna and the French Kiss in Waterstones funnily enough but it wasn't there :(

    My Showcase Sunday :)

  12. Ah you make me smile. :D You should vlog more. And live closer. So we could go for hot chocolate while wearing fluffy slippers and lamenting the poor sad monsters. Yesyes.

  13. That's a wonderful haul :D
    I read Anna last year and LOVED it. Hopefully you'll like it too.

    Happy Reading :)

  14. A "spare head" :D I used to LOVE those paper dolls when I was a kid. And I agree with Hannah, you should vlog more :)

  15. Anna and the French Kiss & Eleanor and Park are both really good! I loved both of them so I hope you do too!
    Great haul! Happy reading :)
