Summer Book Haul! ♡


Yesterday while shopping with my friends at Oxford Street, we happened to pass by Waterstones and we all decided to head in and find some new reads for the Summer :) As usual, Waterstones was having really good discounts on their fictions (buy one get one half price!) and I picked up 5 different books from the store ♡

A Game of Thrones - George R.R. Martin 
I know I know... I am SO LATE on this series! I have heard way too many good things about these books but I just did not have the time to pick them up and read them because of my exams. Now that it is summertime I can't wait to read the books myself! For those who have read all the books in the series so far - what do you guys think?! Do the books get worse and worse throughout the series or are they all as good as the first book? :)

Requiem - Lauren Oliver 
This is the third book of the Delirium trilogy, which is another dystopian series similar to the Hunger Games and Divergent books. I read the first 2 books of the trilogy last summer but never really picked up the 3rd book. For some reason I just did not have the urge to read the books one after one immediately for this series unlike the Hunger Games and the Divergent books which I was absolutely crazy about. I saw this book in the buy one and get one half price section and thought I might as well read the last book! I will do a little book review on this book after I have finished reading it and maybe give my opinions on the trilogy as a whole! 

You're The One that I want - Giovanna Fletcher ♡
I saw this book in the buy one get one half price section and thought this would a perfect beach/ bubble-bath book to read while relaxing in the summer ♡ The description of the book at the back basically describes a girl choosing between two guys who are best friends. I am guessing that this is a typical fun relaxing Summer read and I can imagine myself sipping on lemonade while reading this in the sun :)

Thirteen Weddings - Paige Toon 
This again is another fun beach book that I picked up ♡ The description 'Always the photographer, never the bride' of the book reminds me a bit of the movie 27 Dresses which is one of my favourite chick flicks so I thought this might be another girly and relaxing book to read :) 

The Body Book - Cameron Diaz with Sandra Bark ♡
Lastly, I picked up the Body Book when I saw that it was £4 off the original price in Waterstones. I have again heard good thing about this book which is written by Cameron Diaz and the book basically gives a lot of information and knowledge on nutrition, exercising, and having a healthy mind. Since I have been really into fitness and getting fit and healthy lately this is just the book I need! I have read a couple of chapters so far and am really enjoying the book itself and the way it is written. I will definitely do a more in depth review on this book once I have finished reading it! ♡

If you guys have any more suggestions of great books I should read for the summer please tell me about them! I can't wait to read all these books and book reviews will be coming soon!

  1. I would be interested to hear about the body book! I have picked it up a couple times but always debate whether to buy :)

  2. I have nearly finished the 'nutrition' section of the book and I think it is pretty informative so far and I am enjoying it! :) The only thing is that the book doesn't really give any meal ideas and instead just tells you what food is good and why it is important. Still a good book though! (at least for the first part I have read) :) I will probably do a book review on it once I have finished reading the whole book <3
