I really love doing book hauls. I do not see them as a way of showing off what ‘free books’ I received from publishers or what books ‘I can afford’, but a way of showing people the books I want to read, books I’m excited about, books I hadn’t heard of before – and they’re also among my favourite posts to read (or videos to watch, if you’re a book vlogger). But I also like other hauls. I follow various vloggers like thereadables, essiebutton, fleurdeforce, and I love to see their various hauls, whether that’s books, hair products, food, clothes, anything… and so I thought I’d share some of those things with you too.
I did receive one book that I wasn’t expecting (I’m trying really hard not to accept any review copies or buy any books as there’s currently 170 books I own but haven’t read yet. It’s ridiculously absurd.).
Eternally Yours by Cate Tiernan
This is the third book in the Immortal Beloved series, one of the very few ‘paranormal’ books I enjoy! I also like the new cover design (you can see the previous covers in my reviews here and here).
I’ve liked Lush for years but I only started buying their products again after seeing everyone talk about their Christmas stuff. I can’t really show them properly as they’re all wrapped up to keep fresh but I bought Cinders Bath Bomb, Father Christmas Bath Bomb (it turns the water red then green!), Magic Wand Bubble Bar, Party Popper Bath Bomb (which I’ve used – it turned the bath pink!), and the absolutely fantastic Snow Fairy Shower Gel. It smells like bubblegum and pear drops.
I’ve always wanted a ‘ugly Christmas sweater’ but they’re just not a ‘thing’ here. Until recently. I decided to go more ‘cute’ than ‘ugly’ and bought this cream reindeer jumper from ASOS. I just love it. (Although I may need a smaller size…).
