Super cheap book haul | Janu-Blog Day 15

Recently, I cleared out a lot of books to donate to a charity shop. I chose a cancer care bookshop in Ayrshire, where my boyfriend lives, and while visiting to give my books, I had to look at what they had on offer...

Nothing could have prepared me for those prices.

Every book was 50p or under, with multi-buy deals if you bought a few books. I couldn't contain myself and bought five second-hand books for £1.30. I was practically hyperventilating as I left the shop; FIVE books for £1.30?! I felt like I had robbed the charity.

Nevertheless, here are the books that I bought!

"Beautiful" by Katie Piper:
I adore Katie Piper. Her story is very inspiring and right now, I'm addicted to Bodyshockers on TV. "Beautiful" is her first autobiography, and if I enjoy it I'll definitely have a look at her other two.

"Life & Laughing" by Michael McIntyre:
During 2015, I read a lot of autobiographies and I wanted to continue this trend into this year. Comedians' autobiographies are some of my favourites, so I couldn't resist picking up Michael McIntyre's.

"Me Before You" by Jojo Moyes:
I had to pick up this book when I saw it because I've heard so many great things about it. It follows Lou, who loses her job, and Will, who is recovering from a motorbike accident. All I know is that the pair cross paths and things ensue from there.

 "The List" by Joanna Bolouri:
 This was a total spine/cover buy. I didn't think I owned any books with pink spines and I thought it would look beautiful on my bookshelf. I'm saving this one for if I ever need pulled out of a reading slump, as I've heard it's an easy, fun read about a woman who is single and trying to have fun.

"Confessions of a Tinderella" by Rosy Edwards:
I've already read this one since buying it and it was super funny! It's a memoir of Rosy and her journey to find love on Tinder. I found myself laughing out loud a few times at this and would recommend it as an easy read, especially if you aren't used to non-fiction and want to get into it.

I'll perhaps definitely need to return to this bookshop soon, so many bargains!

I'm blogging every day in January! Check back at 6pm GMT every day for a new Janu-Blog post!
