The Book Depository Book Haul

 Hello everyone. You may have noticed that there have been a few affiliate links cropping up in my posts as well as a button in my sidebar. The Book Depository is the website that I buy most of my books from because a) they're often cheaper than Amazon and b) they have free worldwide shipping. I like to recommend websites that ship internationally because I know I have a lot of worldwide readers and not just UK ones. So if you buy any of the books from this post or anything else from The Book Depository from these links I'll earn a small commission. You don't get charged any extra money. I would really appreciate it if you could use these links! I just wanted to clear this up and show you some of the things that I've bought from The Book Depository over the last few weeks so that you know it's actually a website I believe in and use myself.


I'd heard so many amazing thing about Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson that I just had to pick it up. I've wanted to read it for months. Laurie Halse Anderson is known for writing really honest and shocking novels. Speak deals with bullying and sexual assault in high school, probably should come with a trigger warning. I'm looking forward to reading this as I think it will be an eye opener.  


I bought The Sky Is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson because my dear old pal Charlotte recommended it to me ages ago. I don't know too much about it but I think the general jist is that the main character's sister dies and then she ends up falling for her boyfriend and then feels guilty about it. I'm sure I'll enjoy it if Charlotte did. Also the cover is absolutely beautiful.


I've already read Lola And The Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins and even though it has the cringiest title ever it was amazing. I think sometimes you need a really squishy and romantic novel. It's good for the soul. Ditch your book shame and give this one a read. 17 year old Lola thinks she has everything sorted. Until her twin neighbours move back in to the house next door and everything changes.


I'm sure you've all heard of the movie Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist? Well it's based on a book by Rachel Cohn and David Leviathan. I've already read this but I'm not too sure about it. I think I might have preferred the movie. The plot line is a little different and so are characters. I'm still glad I read it though. David Leviathan often writes with other writers and I have to admit I prefer his solo works.


I've already read Vivian Versus The Apocalypse by Katie Coyle and loved it. It's about a world where some religious nut job has predicted a rapture and the world is going crazy over it because a string of natural disasters backs it up. There's also an element of a road trip which I love in a novel. Although I do wish it was a little bit longer but I still enjoyed it.


I couldn't exactly leave this bookmark behind could I? It's awesome and totally true.
