(Otherwise known as: All The Books I Have Bought in the Last Month – a.k.a. I Really Can’t Sleep/Reminding Myself Why I Am NOT Allowed to Browse BookDepository)
This really is just a random posting of all of the books I have bought recently. Mostly because I can’t sleep, but also because I just find it funny/entertaining/horrifying to look at. 😛
Side note: I’ve been going through a bit of a biography/YA phase. They don’t really fit together, but it’s certainly made life interesting!
Books with ** have been read. Books with * I am currently in the process of reading, sort of.

And to make matters worse, I bought the following earlier today because they were cheap, I wanted something light and easy to read, I needed a break from my university readings, and I saw them recommended on a webpage. Worst. Excuses. Ever.

So, uh, that’s nearly 30 books in just over a month… I may have just identified exactly where all of my money has been going.
I did say that I like books!
Still, let it here be declared that I vow not to purchase another book until all of these have been read (or until the new Juliet Marillier is released in July, whichever happens first!). Wish me luck!
EDIT: 22/04/2012 Been doing a bit of (slow) reading in the past few weeks, and having a ball doing it! I also branched out and read Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games the other day. What can I say? I love me a bandwagon! More to come soon! 🙂
