Book Haul May 2015

It took a while to get through my last lot, but I am finally back with another book haul. I selected these beauties from an extensive Goodreads to-read list which now stems over 200 books. I add to this list on a weekly basis so I don’t think I will ever get it down to zero!

First on my list is ‘Paper Towns’ by John Green. Ever since reading ‘The Fault in Our Stars’, I have been wanting to get between the pages of some of Green’s other books. I found that ‘Paper Towns’ had the most positive reviews so I decided to start there. I also wanted to read this before it came out in film because I have a thing about reading the story before actually seeing it.

I stress a lot and am close to driving myself mad worrying about unnecessary things. So, of course, ‘Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff….and it’s all small stuff’ by Richard Carlson immediately spoke to me. I am not expecting a miracle from this book, but I do hope to pick up a few tips to help me relax a little.

I have no reason for wanting to read ‘The Rosie Project’ by Graeme Simsion other that I have heard really good things about it. I hope it won’t leave me down!

I never really had one main reason for becoming a pescetarian. While I was beginning to feel more and more uncomfortable about eating meat, a reluctance to eat animals was not the main driving force behind my decision. However, two years later, I have become more and more interested in the effects meat eaters can have on the world. So, I decided to do things backwards and start educating myself more about meat-free lifestyles. ‘Eating Animals’ by Jonathan Safran Foer will be my first port of call.

Finally, I choose ‘How to Fall in Love’ by Cecelia Ahern. I have been a fan of Cecelia’s since ‘P.S. I Love You’ and am looking forward to getting stuck into her latest offering.

Have you read any of the books mentioned? What did you think?


  1. I am a quarter of the way through it now and am enjoying it so far. I can’t help but think the story is really going to take off in the next couple of chapters.

  2. I’ve read both How to Fall in love and The Rosie Project. I wasn’t too enamoured by Cecelia Ahern, but I adored Rosie. It’s a really great read!

    1. Cecelia Ahern is good but I often found that her books hop from being good to just ok. I won’t go in expecting much. I was a bit disappointed with The Rosie Project after hearing so much about it.
