First Book Haul of 2019

I treated myself to some new books at the start of the New Year, because… well… why not!

I am so excited to read all of these!

1901 book haul new

1. Thinking on my Feet (Kate Humble)

I read one of BBC presenter Kate Humble’s other books and really enjoyed her writing style. This one is about walking (something I should do more of in 2019!). I love these types of non-fiction books and I am looking forward to reading it.

2. Lab Girl (Hope Jahren) 

I saw Olive at abookolive talk about this book on Booktube and it sounded right up my street. It’s non-fiction to do with plantlife and a memoir – perfect!

3. Rain (Melissa Harrison)

I have been wanting to read something by Melissa Harrison for a while and this has been sitting in my basket for ages. I finally bought this little non-fiction book, which is also about walking…. but in the rain 🙂

4. A Black Fox Running (Brian Carter)

This one was originally published in the 1980s I believe, but I have never read it. I was simply attracted to the synopsis and this beautiful new edition. It’s written from a fox’s point of view, which is something I love. What can I say, I love foxes!

4. Picnic at Hanging Rock (Joan Lindsay)

I have been wanting to read this one for ages. I love Australia as a setting and this one is a mystery, historical fiction and a classic… and not very long. I am so looking forward to reading it, but it is set in summer, so I may wait till summer to read it. I love these Vintage red spine editions as well.

5. Tower of Thorns & Den of Wolves (Juliet Marillier)

I read the first book in the Blackthorn & Grim series sometime last year and enjoyed it. I would like to read more by this author, but would like to finish this series first. I do love these little mass market paperbacks!


So that was my little treat of a haul 🙂 Have you read any of these? Let me know!

  1. I haven’t read any of them but I’ve heard Picnic at Hanging Rock is supposed to be good. I watched the tv show which was a little odd but I think the book should be better. Hope you enjoy your new books ☺️
