Recent Book Haul & To Be Read List

As I said in my previous post my reading has suffered recently because of being so busy, but that’s not stopped me buying new books! Today I wanted to share with you some of my recent book buys and what’s on my to be read list πŸ™‚

So all of these books are obviously on my to be read list but they do include 3 new recipe books and a couple of books I’ve had for a while.

The Crown book – This was actually given to me and dad (as a joint present) for Christmas last year… but I’ve not yet to round to reading it. In fact I’ve still not finished watching S2 of the Crown yet either!

We Bought a Zoo – I bought this second hand off Amazon and it has been on my to be read list for such a long time. There is also a film loosely based on the book which is amazing.

30 Days – So I’ve recently decided to start again with my Christian faith and re-discover it all. So I bought this book to help me do that.

Rooted in God’s Grace – This book is actually written by a friend of mine. She sent it to me to help in what I just said above.

National Trust Book of Scones – When I was in the Isle of Wight I found this book in the shop at the Needles. It had some wonderful sounding recipes in so I couldn’t resist it!

The Jungle Book – I’ve never read “The Jungle Book”! While I was in the Isle of Wight I was passing a little library who had a book sale. I had a little browse and picked this up for 50p.

Little Fires Everywhere – I’ve joined another book club with some of my friends and this is our first book to read.

The Unicorn Cookbook – I bought this for Brownies really to get some ideas for cooking I could do with them.

The Penguin Lessons – This book has actually been recommended to me 3 times now by 3 separate people, so I decided to pick it up the other day πŸ™‚

The Summer Seaside Kitchen – I’ve not read any Jenny Colgan books yet but she’s been recommended to me.

Nelson Mandela A Long Walk to Freedom – Since I came home from South Africa I was quite keen to read this, but I’ve not yet got round to it! It’s a massive book and no doubt will be fascinating but I think I may have to read this in bits! πŸ™‚

Stately Pursuits -This was again recommended by a friend πŸ™‚ I’ve only read one Katie Fforde book before so I’ll be interested to see how I find this one πŸ™‚

Bake It Better Pies and Tarts – I picked this up the other day in TK Maxx. So I was browsing and found they had loads of copies of this book. All of them were priced at Β£4.99 except the one I picked up which was priced at Β£2.50. Can’t go too wrong for that price!

One in a Million – I LOVE Lindsey Kelk and this is her latest release. You know I’m actually really upset with myself that it’s been out as long as it has but I’ve not read it yet! But I think it’ll be my next read.

Little Beach Street Bakery – When I was browsing on Amazon the other day this book was only Β£2, so I thought why not?!

Have you read any of these books? If so what did you think?Β 

Have you bought any books recently? πŸ™‚
