I’ve Been to the Library!

I’m back! Yes, last week was a false start. I could make all the apologies in the world (I’ve been ill, I’ve been visiting my parents, I’ve been working really hard, I haven’t been taking photos because of poor light, I’ve been to Disneyland) and they’d all be true, but essentially, I’m sorry. I love this blog and I hate that I’ve let it slip out of my hands recently. I’m reprioritizing, and should be bringing you exciting things everyday again soon!

On to the exciting news – I have been to the library (oh, what, you guessed that from the title?). I thought I’d ease myself back into blogging with a quick trip through what I’m looking forward to reading in the next couple of weeks!

What I’ve Been Reading This Week (23rd June – 1st July)

I meant to put this post up yesterday, but time ran away with me, so here it is today!

I’ve been home for a week now, and have been very much enjoying having the free time to read all the books I’ve been storing up for ages. Read on for mini reviews of what I’ve finished this week!

New Books!

It’s been a little while since I posted, sorry. The first couple of weeks are always really busy, but I think I’m just about organised now. I’m going to try to post twice, maybe three times a week from now on.

So, being back in Oxford means being back in bookland, and it was only going to be so long before being in libraries all day made me long for book buying! Add to that the fact that I just got a sort-of job with Blackwell’s, the big awesome Oxford bookshop, that gives me a 30% discount on all books, well, let’s make that ‘so long’ into ‘about five minutes’. Without any further ado, here’s what I’ve acquired:


From the £2 bookshop in town:

Sisters Red – Jackson Pearce

The Goose Girl – Shannon Hale

Listening to Britain – Paul Addison and Jeremy Crang

Oscar’s Books – Thomas Wright

From Blackwell:

Dracula – Bram Stoker (free)

Fairies and Fairy Stories: A History – Diane Purkiss

In Search of the Dark Ages – Michael Wood

Selected Poems 1923-1958 – E. E. Cummings

I’m so excited to get reading again! I’ll have to make some time, but I’m really looking forward to some of these. What should I read first?
