Stacking the Shelves (#11)

So I am back from London and in Finland! These are the books I bought from London (+ a book I bought during my final day in Edinburgh)

FROM LONDON






FROM EDINBURGH

I haven't read this one yet, unfortunately, but I am super excited for it, and won't start it until I really have the time to binge read it. At London I was so busy just going around the city and now at home I've been meeting family and friends, so I haven't had time to read at all. Maybe next week once everything gets somewhat back to normal.

  1. I hope you enjoyed your day in Edinburgh! I live about an hour away and I used to go through to the city to just walk around and do some shopping. I haven't been there in nearly three years so I might go back and try the new trams! And maybe buy some books...

    1. I actually live in Edinburgh for most of the year due to the fact that I study there. It is a beautiful city though with great shopping facilities and bookstores :) And I think I'll try to trams as well once I go back in September.

  2. I am totally with you on waiting to read CoHF. I worry that I will start, then have to put it down, then forget what happened, re-read, and it will become a vicious cycle for 700+pages. And I am reading Love Letters to the Dead right now! Hope you enjoy your time in Finland (I have only been there once, in Helsinki, and briefly, but it was so beautiful! I just read your "About Me", and saw that your family is in Northern Finland, I imagine it is a bit different there!) and your new books!

    1. I am saving CoHF for rainy days that will definitely come at some point during the summer. None of my friends here in Finland have read the books, so I won't have to worry about spoilers. :)

      I am really excited for Love Letters to the Dead - the cover at least is absolutely gorgeous. :)

      Helsinki is nice, but I prefer my hometown Oulu :)

  3. Oh, you got book #3 of the Saga series, I absolutely need it ! Edinburgh is a beautiful city, I have a fond memory of visiting it years ago :)

    1. I was only planning on buying the second one, but since they had both volumes 2 and 3 on the shelf, I just bought both because I probably would have ordered volume 3 online anyway.
      Edinburgh is nice, but I'm happy to be back to Finland for a while :)

  4. I've only been to Edinburgh once for a few hours when I was touring Scotland but really loved it. Love Letters to the Dead, yes! I know some people didn't like it, but it made me cry and any book that makes me cry I love. Speaking of crying...The Fault in Our Stars. Yup. Happy reading, and hope you get to CoHF soon! :)

    1. Though I love Edinburgh, I feel like I was in a need of a break from the city. Now I'll have a long break until I go back in September :)
      I've read The Fault in Our Stars previously, but I now have a physical copy I can reread before I'm able to see the film :)

    1. I've read TFIOS previously from my ereader, but I had to buy myself a physical copy so I can reread it before the film premieres in Finland :)

  7. Sweet haul! I love the artwork of the first two, the colours are great. I've heard a lot of good things about Love Letters to the Dead, hope you enjoy all your new books!
