A Small Book Haul

Ahh there isn't anything much better than buying a new book is there? After absolutely loving the recent books I've read, Five Years From Now and The Sisters, I was in need of a few more to try. I did start one that I'd had for ages but I just couldn't properly get into it, that's one for another time I think, so I decided to have a little browse on Amazon. If you've not already seen, there are some brilliant deals on books on there at the moment! Loads are reduced to £2 and all of the ones I got were on offer so now is definitely the time to look. Anyway I thought I'd share the books I got in case you're looking for something new too!

Pictures of Lily - Paige Toon

Paige Toon is quickly becoming one of my favourite authors. Five Years From Now has stuck with me ever since I closed the last page and I have been desperate to get my hands on some of her other books since. One that stood out to me is Pictures of Lily and as it was on offer for just over £6, I thought now was the time to snap it up. I have a feeling this is going to be another book that leaves me feeling all sorts of emotions but I'm so excited to get stuck in. Paige's writing is incredible so I'm looking forward to seeing how this book goes.

'Ten years ago when Lily was just sixteen, she fell in love with someone she really shouldn't have fallen in love with. Now, living in Sydney and engaged to another man, she can't forget the one that got away. Then her past comes back to haunt her, and she has to make a decision that will break her heart - and the heart of at least one of the men who love her.'

How to be Happy - Eva Woods

This was a very last minute addition. I'd never heard of it before until I saw tweet from someone saying how good it was and that instantly sparked my interest. From a few of the reviews I've read, I do think it's quite a sad book but I'm weird, I kind of like books like that, that really make me feel something. There was just something about it that resonated with me and kept pulling me back everytime I considered other books. I can't wait to get reading and see where it takes me.

'The smallest things can make the biggest difference. Annie has been sad for so long that she's forgotten how to be any other way. Until she meets Polly. Polly is everything that Annie is not. She's colourful, joyful, happy. Because if recent events have taught Polly anything, it's that your time is too short to waste a single day. Polly has one hundred days to help Annie find happiness. Annie's convinced it's impossible, but so is saying no to Polly. On an unforgettable journey, Annie begins to realise that maybe, just maybe, there's still colour to be found in the world. But then it becomes clear that Polly's about to need her new friend more than ever...and Annie will have to decide once and for all whether letting others in is a risk worth taking.'

This is Going to Hurt: Secret Diaries of a Junior Doctor - Adam Kay

I went back and forth over whether to add this to my basket or not. It's one of the books I've seen all over social media for months now and each thing I've read has been positive so for that reason alone I felt like I had to see what all the fuss is about. The reason I held back for so long was because I have pretty severe health anxiety and anything to do with hospitals honestly makes me want to be sick so I just thought, this is going to really set me off. As I've made a start with counselling now though, I do feel, slowly, I'm improving and in a better place to deal with anything that could come up. I'm actually really looking forward to reading it now and I'm glad I decided to just go for it and buy it. It's £3.75 too so an absolute bargain!

'Welcome to the life of a junior doctor: 97-hour weeks, life and death decisions, a constant tsunami of bodily fluids, and the hospital parking meter earns more than you. Scribbled in secret after endless days, sleepless nights and missed weekends, Adam Kay's This is Going to Hurt provides a no-holds-barred account of his time on the NHS front line. Hilarious, horrifying and heartbreaking, this diary is everything you wanted to know - and more than a few things you didn't - about life on and off the hospital ward.'

I am just so excited to start of all these books, I actually don't know which to pick first! They all sound incredible for different reasons so I'm really torn. I'm sure they'll be reviews of these up once I've got through them so look out for those if you want to know what I thought. Let me know if you've read any of these though too, would love to hear your opinions.
