Hello Hello! How are you?

Today on the blog I’m back with a quick little post because I haven’t been very productive or consistent with blogging after being unwell AGAIN, very tired and so, so busy.

I am still, and will be for a while, on a book buying ban, and although I didn’t buy nothing in November, I didn’t do too bad with the few books I did buy, and that I’m very excited for.

So keep on reading to see what books I purchased last month!


The Extraordinary Voyage of Katy Willacott by Sharon Gosling

I bought this book for the Middle-Grade Marvels Book Club pick for November, but unfortunately I haven’t even read it for this month’s chat. Well, I did read about 80 pages, which I enjoyed a lot, but life and adulting got in the way, so it is sadly just sitting on my bedside table.

It was a very intriguing start though, so I’ll need to restart it and continue with it soon!

Survive the Night by Riley Sager

I’ve seen this book all over Twitter and Instagram ever since it was published. I also read a previous book by this author called Home Before Dark, which I absolutely loved.

I think Riley Sager has become an auto-buy author just with one book and I have a really good feeling about this next one. Hopefully I’ll be reading this book quite soon, probably as part of a buddy read, so that will be fun!


Le Crime parfait d’Agatha Christie by Bénédicte Jourgeaud

I was having a mosey in my local shop and was drawn to this cover and title as soon as I saw it. This year, lots of books have been published about Agatha Christie, in particular about the period of time she went missing for and what happened to her and what she did in that time. I’m also very interested by this event and love her Hercule Poirot books (I haven’t had a chance to read the others yet!), so when I saw this book I knew I needed to try out this fictional account of a crime she solved while she was “missing”.

I’m so excited and I also personally know the publisher who was one of my professors this past year at university, so I am looking forward to finally discovering the books he publishes with his team!!

Fleurs d’Oko (#1) by Laëtitia Danae

This is another book published by the publisher I was just talking about, but this book is part of his YA/NA fantasy/science-fiction imprint and I have to say that I absolutely love the cover. He described this book to us in class about a year ago, and ever since I’ve been so intruged by it, but don’t really remember the blurb in full.

However, on another mosey in another store a few weeks ago, I saw it sticking out of the stacks and knew I needed to add it to my collection then and there… even if I might not get to it for years, oops. I’m hoping this will be a great new French fantasy series to start in the New Year!

So only a small list this month, but some books I am really, really looking forward to reading. Also, at least my November haul didn’t break the bank, or the bookshelves…!

That’s all for now, I hope you enjoyed reading this post. What books did you buy recently?

See you soon, stay safe,

Ellie xx
