The Book People Haul: Historical Fiction and Audiobooks!
I’m currently at YALC which is amazing and completely exhausting so I thought I’d just do a quick post showing you my recent haul from The Book People. I’ve talked about them over and over because they’re a really great company. Low prices, consistently excellent deals and absolutely lovely customer service. So here’s what I ordered…
And more pictures because I cannot get over that cover…
The book that started this whole haul was Katherine of Aragon: The True Queen by Alison Weir
. The one I reviewed
last Saturday and loved. I knew I wanted a finished hardcover copy and it was the same price as it was on Amazon so guilt-free! But to hit that over £25 free delivery, I had to buy more books, right? Right. Book buyer logic.
The Cousins’ War series by Philippa Gregory
has been on my radar since I first started book blogging but I never really felt like historical fiction was my jam. However, since book blogging I’ve had some good experiences with the genre. The Crimson Ribbon
and The Silvered Heart by Katherine Clements
were both great reads and, and I cannot stress this enough, Katherine of Aragon: The True Queen by Alison Weir blew my mind
And the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy series by Douglas Adams has been on my Spring and Summer TBR but I haven’t got around to it yet. So when I saw the audiobooks narrated by Stephen Fry and Martin Freeman I had a brainwave. I’d read/ listen along with the friend I introduced to Harry Potter! Boom! Over £25 so free shipping and technically 12 books.
Aaaand there will probably be a YALC haul coming up soon too. Don’t judge me! It’s a book lovers dream here.
