Book haul (buying ban well and truly goosed):
Apologies for the lack of activity on this blog over the last couple of weeks. As you can see, I have well and truly broken my book-buying ban (again!) with this frickin’ HUGE haul of vintage children and young adult books.
Some vintage Enid Blyton books. I loved Malory Towers and St Clare’s series when I was younger so I couldn’t resist snapping up these awesome vintage sets from the 1960’s-1980’s (these actually match the books I used to own except for books 2 and 3 of the Malory Towers set – I had different covers for those two).
Some more Point Horror books to add to my shelf. I really have well and truly broken the book buying ban haven’t I?
Some of these are duplicates but this lot was going for such a low price on Ebay I jumped at the chance to pick up a few new books to add to my ever-growing PH collection.
Check out the freaky cover for Margaret Mahy’s The Changeover too – this was the cover I can remember from my youth. My local library had a copy and the cover always scared the crap out of me back then lol. 😉
Anyone remember reading any books by Eileen Goudge when they were younger? I certainly do! It’s been a long time since I read the Who Killed Peggy Sue series (I cannot remember who actually DID kill her to be honest) so I am looking forward to a wee trip down memory lane. I also picked up some of the Seniors series as well while I was at it. 😉
I remember loving the Hotline series when I was younger. I remember it being pretty hard-hitting but definitely a compelling series. I managed to get the entire set on Ebay. Another book from the Sweet Dreams series made it into my haul too. 😉
Some Wildfire books were up for bid on Ebay. I actually cannot remember these ever being released over here in the UK (correct me if I am wrong) but I have always been pretty curious about this series of romance books aimed at the young adult demographic. I’m really digging the old-school vintage covers too. I actually really glad I was given the chance of buying these. 😀
Lastly, here are some other books I have added to my collection. I am really excited to read Maggie Hall’s books – I was very lucky to win some signed swag related to this series a few weeks back so I am well-chuffed to have the books in my possession now.
My other-half also treated me to this lovely edition of The Secret Garden (the photo really doesn’t do it any justice – trust me).
I also finally got my hands on a copy of Up a Road Slowly by Irene Hunt – very excited to start this. To round the buying spree off, I also picked up the Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children box set – it is just so pretty I can’t even…
Here are some of the books I added to my eReader this week. The top row are purchases I made for my Kindle. The bottom row are the eARCs I was lucky to be approved for on Netgalley. 🙂
