A HUGE Book Haul

I've always been that person who will buy lots of books put them on my shelf and leave them there for a few months before I pick one up, if I do. I'm just so fussy when it comes to books and if something doesn't start to interest me by at most the end of the fourth chapter I will often put it aside and start a new book which is a terrible habit I know but come on, who has time to read a book that they're not enjoying? I think this is the first time in my life where I have been struggling to choose which book I want to read first because they all look just so inviting. I'm really happy with the selection of books I purchased and so I thought that they might be of interest to someone else out there looking for a new book to read! Sometimes its so hard to find a book that relates to the style, themes, topics or plots similar to one of your favourites but I feel I did a pretty good job this time. For reference, I was absolutely LOVING 'The Fault In Our Stars' by the almighty John Green and 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower' by Stephen Chbosky  (still am, always will) when searching for some new reads and so searched for books similar to the topics/style of writing/characters of these, but different enough as to keep me interested... so here they are!

(Top to bottom) To Kill a Mockingbird - Harper Lee ; The Universe Versus Alex Woods - Gavin Extence
See You at Harry's - Jo Knowles ; The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks - Rebecca Skloot 
Life after Life - Kate Atkinson ; The Bell Jar - Sylvia Plath
Lord of the Flies - William Golding ; It's Kind of a Funny Story - Ned Vizzini
The Shock of the Fall - Nathan Filer ; The Husband's SecretLiane Moriarty
Looking for Alaska - John Green ; Six Years - Harlan Coben 

If you've read any of these let me know what you thought of them (without any spoilers of course!) and/or if you have any other books that you'd recommend then definitely make sure to leave them in a comment below!

Remember - there is always time to read, no matter how much it might seem otherwise at times!

  4. I love so many of these books! I'm the same too, I go through fazes of buying lots of books and just leaving them on my shelf for ages before I actually pick them up and read them.
