Book Haul| August 2019

If you're wondering if I had just posted book haul, not that long ago, then you're completely correct. I would apologize, but during my little break to focus on applying for jobs, I got so many books and then some more!
August might be the first time, in a long while, where the number of books I bought outweighs the books sent for PR. I really went wild with the "treat yo self" motto. I got some fantastic books, some new releases, and some old favourites to start rebuilding my book collection.
As usual, I'll be flagging up the ones I have been sent, by who and when they are/were releasing.

First Line Fridays | September 13th, 2019

It's that part of the week where I get to share what I am planning on reading by playing a little game. This idea was created by the wonderful Wandering Words. Here's the general gist: 
  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page.
  • Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first.
  • Finally… reveal the book!





























The Witches 
Roald Dahl

Format | Paperback 
Page Count | 208

Today is Roald Dahl day! As well as being Friday 13th and a Full Moon. I thought today's First Line Friday would be a brilliant way to showcase one of my favourite books growing up and the book I credit to my humor, my wicked streak, and my love of witches and magic.
