Birthday Book-Haul!

It was my birthday this week, and I received some awesome books! My parents wanted to know what I wanted for my birthday, and obviously there were a number of books on my list, but my lovely friends also surprised me with some books too!

Here’s what I received:


Moxie by Jennifer Mathieu

Smart idea: don’t shop the day before your birthday, it’s not a good idea. Being the silly human I am, I went shopping the day before my birthday, and all but begged my parents to buy me this book (which they very kindly did)! What I didn’t know was my friend was out at the same time buying me the same book. So now I have two copies (which I’m definitely not sad about haha)!


History Is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera

This is another book I chose out for myself (thanks again mom and dad)! I’ve been hearing a lot about Adam Silvera at the moment, and I felt like it was time to jump on the hype bandwagon!


The Names They Gave Us by Emery Lord

The cover of this book is so pretty! It really was love at first sight, so I’m really hoping the lovely cover matches the story inside. It sounds like it’s going to be a very emotional read, so I’m looking forward to starting it.


The Start of Me and You by Emery Lord

Is it bad I picked this one out because of the cover?! I couldn’t help it, it’s just too pretty. I’m hoping I’ll enjoy this one – again it seems like it’s going to be an emotional story from Emery Lord!


Into the Water by Paula Hawkins

I’ve heard a lot of stuff about this novel, and though it’s not the normal genre I go for, I’m intrigued to give it a go! I know the author also wrote The Girl On the Train which I’ve seen mixed reviews of, so we’ll see!


The Bone Sparrow by Zana Fraillon

Again, this isn’t a book I’d normally gravitate towards, but it’s good to change up your style! I’m looking forward to reading this one and seeing what it’s all about!

And that’s my birthday book-haul! It’s official: I have the best friends ever. I’ve known this for quite a while now, but it really struck me on my birthday how lucky I am to have the people I do in my life (obviously not just because they buy me books…though it does add to their awesome factor haha!).

Have you read any of these books, or are you planning to?
