The Monster Book Haul of Monsters


I went a little bit stir crazy a few weeks ago and decided to spend all the money on books. While I think it was a worthy investment, my savings account isn’t exactly thrilled! I now feel a little like I’m drowning in a monstrous TBR pile, so I’m putting myself in a reading challenge to try and get through some more books!

  1. Very interesting! 🙂
    Fahrenheit 451,Bell Jar and The Sound and the Fury are on my wish-list!
    The Silmarillion looks very interesting and I even considered buying once! As for the Brontes, I don’t know if I will love their books.But someday or the other, I’ll have to read them.

    I have also heard good things said about Elizabeth Gaskell,especially about her works Cranford and North and Sound!
    Well,Happy Reading! 🙂

    • I’ve been wanting some of these for ages!
      I read The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit last year, so the Silmarillion is the logical next step. I’m told it’s very difficult to get through though.
      Jane Eyre is a fantastic book, I definitely recommend starting with that one to start you off with the Bronte sisters.
      I’ve seen the BBC production of North and South… It’s awesome! Richard 4 *swoons*
