Good morning! I am currently sitting on the sofa with a cup of peppermint tea, listening to the raining hit and roll down the window and thought you know what? This would be a great time to write up a post. So here I am with a little book haul, full of books I'm planning on reading in the near future! Most of these books have been sent to me by the Publisher (so thanks pubs!) and all of them sound amazing! 

This book is 100% gonna make me cry, whether that's what it's supposed to do or not, I can feel it in my bones 

From what I've gathered about this book, it's about a girl who goes to Tuscany to rekindle a relationship with her father. That's about all I know of this book, I know it will hit close to home with me, even if it's not supposed to be sad. I'm not sure what to expect with this book, but I just have a feeling it's going to be great. It's also nice to see a book not set in the US, so even more of an incentive to read it! 

*Not that I have a problem with the US, I just love reading books set in different countries!*

I don't know much about this book, I'm assuming it's a romance but I'm probably wrong. I like going into books not knowing much about them so I can be surprised when things happen. I've never read anything by Non Pratt but I've heard such amazing things about her books so when this one turned up at my doorstep, I was ecstatic! I love that there's also two sides to this story, like you literally turn the book around, that's pretty damn cool. 

Again, I don't know a lot about this book, I believe it's a collection of short stories about some darker, 
heavier topics relating to freedom. I am so SO excited to start reading this book, I think it will be the next one I pick up. I'm hoping for greatness and from so many different authors, I know there will be at least a portion of this book that I'm going to love. I've also noticed that there are a few comic strips and poems in there too, which is always a sign of a great book!

I received this book a while ago, and I knew I wanted to read it, I knew it sounded amazing but... my fish brain cannot remember even the tiniest detail about the synopsis of this. *Quickly searches Goodreads to find out what this book is about*... Ah okay, let's start this again! I know exactly what this book is about guys, have no fear!! So I think this is one of those books that does better if you go in knowing very little, it's about loss in every sense, grief, success, friendship and love. The loss of a sibling, the loss of a friend, the loss of that friendship, the drive to succeed and become something more and I will assume it's all nicely bundled into a love story. 

Don't judge me but back in the day, I was a HUGE fan of The Mortal Instruments series and a slightly smaller fan of The Infernal Devices trilogy, so when this showed up at my door, I half squealed, half groaned. Thinking back on both of those series, they were awful, but I really enjoyed them when I read it so I'm in two minds about delving back into that world again. I will 100% give it a try, but I'm not going in with high hopes. I believe there are 10 short stories about Simon, who was my absolute favourite character, so once again he might save the day! 

This is the only book in the haul that I've read! It follows a girl who's on a mission to get her morbidly obese mother healthy. She's not just a little overweight, she literally cannot leave her house and hasn't for a long time. This book was a massive rollercoaster of emotions, I haven't yet written up a review, but when I do I'll link it here in case anyone wants a more in-depth discussion about it! 

I haven't done a book haul post in a loooooong time so I hope you enjoyed it!
