Book Hauling Time!!!
A thing you should know is that my family doesn’t do Christmas Presents. We do the tree and everything but minus the presents. I know, it is very sad….. But that doesn’t mean I stop buying books!!!!
I also got my very first iPhone!!!! It was my cousins but it’s like brand new to me.
I ordered these two babies just before December on Bookworld before they started charging on shipping. I saw my chance and I took it!

Just before Christmas, I went to Kinokuniya for the first time! That place is HUGE!!! It was crowded and there was a huge line for the checkout. I’d never seen this many people lining up at a bookstore! The place is much more expensive then Dymocks (I thought that wasn’t possible) but I couldn’t help myself. I bought Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld mostly because it was signed!!!! And also, My True Love Gave to Me because it was almost Christmas and the hardcover was beautiful!
Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld
My True Love Gave to Me by Various Authors, Edited by Stephanie Perkins
On that same day, I also went to Kmart, saw Black Ice for $12 and thought; why not?
Black Ice by Becca Fitzpatrick
These were essential buys because they’re my English texts next year. If you can notice my little bookmark hanging out of Animal Farm, I’m a bit into it but I just keep getting distracted by other books. I still have to buy The Happiest Refugee by Anh Do.
The Importance of Being Earnest and Other Plays by Oscar Wilde
Animal Farm by George Orwell
From Simon and Schuster, I got my very first ARC copy and it was I Was Here by Gayle Forman. I love what they did with the words in the shape of a speech bubble! I was lucky to receive this as part of the Aussie YA Bloggers.
Thank you Simon and Schuster!!!

As you can see, I have terrible self-control.
