I turned 19 on the 5th of July, and even though I only got two books as gifts, I thought I’d still post a birthday book haul, as I did order myself a few books that arrived the week of my birthday. I’ll leave book depository links to the books mentioned, as that’s where I bought them, and where I buy most of my books from, but this is not a sponsored post, nor am I a book depository affiliate.
I decided to buy Everything I Never Told You after hearing Amy (from shoutame on YouTube) talk about it so positively in one of her monthly wrap-ups. It’s also had great reviews on Goodreads, and so did Lolita. I bought Oliver Twist as I’ve been trying to read more classics recently to get myself back into “study mode”, as I’ll be starting my English Lit. degree in September. The musical Oliver!, which is based off Oliver Twist, is also one of my favourite musicals, as it has so many amazing characters, so I’m sure I’ll really enjoy the book.
I’ve wanted to read Only Ever Yours ever since I read The Handmaid’s Tale in April; I loved it, and I’ve heard that Only Ever Yours deals with very similar themes. I’ve also wanted to read I Am Malala for a while, and I’ll be reading it in September as part of The Feminist Orchestra Book Club (you can join the Goodreads group here), created by Jean Bookishthoughts on YouTube (you can find her channel here).
Let me know in the comments if you’ve read any of these books, and which one you think I should read first!
Have a good day, and keep reading 🙂
