Christmas/New Year Book Haul


I am really happy to be posting again and hope to get back into a posting routine very soon. So, Christmas and New Year have been and gone and it’s back to normality for all of us (which in a way is a good thing). For this post I wanted to share with you the books I have either received or brought between Christmas and New Year. I am hoping to do a haul post once a month from now on, as I have read others and find them really enjoyable to read. I won’t go into much detail about each book, but will leave the links to each book’s Goodreads and Amazon pages so you can check them out if you wish!

  • A Frozen Heart by Elizabeth Rudnick – I received this as a Christmas present and as I am a massive fan of Frozen I was instantly impressed. The book is a retelling of the story of Frozen from the perspectives of Anna and Hans which seems for pretty good reading if you are a lover of this franchise. Goodreads / Amazon.
  • Once Upon a Dream by Liz Braswell – This was also a Christmas present which I was pleased with and is another retelling of a Disney Classic – Sleeping Beauty. What if the Princess never woke up? It seems really interesting and I can’t wait to delve into this retelling. Goodreads / Amazon.
  • Mad Girl by Bryony Gordon – This book I got free from work (the perks of working in a book store) and I was instantly curious about it. It’s non fiction for starters and I have been reading a lot more non fiction lately and it’s also about mental health which is something I struggle with. It is a memoir of telegraph columnist Bryony Gordon and her struggles with OCD, depression and drug use. I have actually already read this and a review will be up soon. Goodreads / Amazon.
  • The Trouble with Goats and Sheep by Joanna Cannon – This book I also got free from work and to be honest the title is what drew me in. From what I’ve heard about this book is that it’s a coming of age story about community. Something that I wouldn’t normally be into, but I’ll give it a go. Goodreads / Amazon.
  • The Muse by Jessie Burton – This is the last book I received from work. I’d heard a lot about Jessie Burton so was wanting to read her work. The Muse seems really intriguing and unlike anything I would normally read. Looking at the reviews of this book, however, I am really excited to read it. Goodreads / Amazon.
  • Fairest of All by Serena Valentino – I brought this myself (yup shock!). This is a story about how the Evil Queen from Snow White became well..evil. I love origin stories and I can tell I am going to love it. Goodreads / Amazon.
  • Poor Unfortunate Soul by Serena Valentino – This is another origin story of a Disney villain – this time Ursula from The Little Mermaid. I find Ursula to be an incredible character so to read her origin story is going to be fab. Goodreads / Amazon.
  • Girl Online Going Solo by Zoe Sugg – My boyfriend got me this for Christmas and I was pleased to get it. This is the third book in the Girl Online series and follows Penny Porter as she starts to live a normal life again. I have read it and will be doing a review. Goodreads / Amazon.
