A little book haul

A picture of books
If there's one thing I can't resist, it's buying books. Every single day I browse Amazon for new books to add to my bookcase or to add to my Kindle library. It's becoming a very expensive habit - but I'll never tire of falling in love with new books.

The Little Book of Mindfulness, Paperback £4.79, Kindle £2.99
Thinking and living positively is something I try to do every single day, but it isn't always that easy. I like indulging in books to do with mindfulness, positivity and Buddhism, as I find they're a great way to 'keep me on track' as such. I decided to pick this up as it's something I won't feel the need to read cover-to-cover immediately, but instead pick up and read as and when I need it. If you read books along this line yourself and have any recommendations, I'd love you to share them with me!

Zodiac: The Shocking True Story of America's Most Elusive Serial Killer: The Shocking True Story of America's Most Bizarre Mass Murderer, Paperback £6.99
True crime is one of my favourite genres, but a genre I haven't indulged in for quite a while. The Zodiac is one of the most famous serial killers in American history, and a serial killer who was never caught. There have been suspicions and accusations over the years - one police officer even believed his own father was the Zodiac killer, yet still he has remained at large. I'm looking forward to getting stuck into this one! Do you have any favourite true crime books I should add to my reading list?

The Rosie Project, Paperback £3.85, Kindle £3.66
Like many books this one caught my eye because of the cover. I asked if anyone had read this on Twitter and I got quite mixed opinions on whether it was worth a read or not, so obviously I had to give it a read for myself! Following the story of Don who is on a mission to find his perfect one, and Rosie, who comes into his life but happens to be completely the opposite of what he's looking for.

The Luminaries, Paperback £3.85, Kindle £3.66
Another one which caught my eye for the cover, and a book I have ummed and ahhed about buying for months. When it arrived, I never expected it to be so big! It's definitely going to take me a little while longer to get through this one, but I'm really excited to get stuck into it. Set in 1866, it follows the story of Walter who hopes to make his fortune, and ends up trying to unravel several mysteries.

Have you picked up any new reads recently?

  4. What a lovely blog post! I'm really looking forward to your reviews. I enjoyed the last two books, it will be interesting to see how you find them and The Little Book of Mindfulness as I haven't read that yet.

    Have you read 10% Happier by Dan Harris? It is a memoir of an American newscaster and how buddhism has helped. I have just picked up Reasons to Stay Alive by Matt Haig too (that also looks like a light read).

  6. Wow can't believe how cheap those paperbacks are, lots of Amazon books don't ship to Australia so it's hard to find them at that price! I loved The Rosie Project and quite enjoyed The Luminaires (although it took a while to get into), hope you enjoy them too!
