A Summer Book Haul


A little break for beauty today with a nice book haul! 

After blogging, reading is certainly my favourite past time, especially in summer. There's something amazing about reading outside whilst becoming totally absorbed in another world through the pages of a book. Below are a few books I recently ordered that I can't wait to get stuck into this month! If you also love reading I hope these give you a few suggestions. 


Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella 
£6.65 - Amazon here
If you read Makeup Savvy often then you will know I featured this book in my most recent wish list. After reading more glowing reviews and thinking £7 isn't too bad for a new hardback, I decided to buy it. Firstly I just love the bright cover to this; it instantly feels like a summer/holiday read to me. This is actually Sophie Kinsella's first voyage into Young Adult fiction, though from reviews and knowing YA fiction I'm still looking forward to reading it. The book whilst staying light hearted and funny, in Sophie's usual tone, deals with the topic of anxiety, something I can definitely relate to. I can't wait to read this book now! Possible review to come. 

You by Caroline Kepnes 
£3.85 - Amazon here
This was a last minute buy after it popped up on my reccomend reads and with sometimes enjoying thrillers I thought I'd give it a go. This is also the book I'm currently reading and half way through so I can give a mini review of it. 'You' is a stalker novel. A damn well creepy one! When student Beck enters a book shop, sales assistant Joe instantly hones in on her. From there on in Joe's obsession spirals out of control through the help of social media and some pretty shocking scenes incur. The book certainly has me hooked, however the pretty much constant sexual element seems a little unneeded if I'm honest. Nothing amazing but still worth reading if you enjoy thrillers with a modern element.

 Life with a Sprinkle of Glitter by Louise Pentland
£6.49 - Amazon here
Firstly this was a book that was kindly sent to me, and though not something I'd have thought to buy myself it's still a book by a fellow blogger that I want to praise and support! In fact I'm actually a big fan of Louise's; I find her to be pretty damn hilerous and she really does come across as a lovely lady. But sadly 'Youtuber' books are aimed at a slightly younger audience, which I understand, and therefore this book and it's topics do feel slightly young for me. However on the whole the book is stunningly presented, it kind of reminds me of a blog/personal journal, and is as an easy fun read. I will still be reading this from cover to cover but this really would be more suited to a 14-19 year old girl. 

Wave: A Memoir of Life After the Tsumai by Sonali Deraniyagala
£9.99 - Amazon here  
Lastly not such a fun summer read but one that tells the story of sheer grief. This is a frank and I'm sure moving account of a Tsumai survivor who devastatingly lost her parents, husband and two young sons to the 2014 distaster. In some ways I'm not sure why I bought this book as it will be a very harrowing but I'm hoping it will be one of survival and strength.  

Hope you have enjoyed this little haul.

I'd love to know what you are currently reading! 

Fee xo.
