Books books books

Hello lovelies. I hope your week is going well. It was a long weekend last weekend and I went to the Lifeline Bookfest again. This is one of my favourite events and I always try to make it each time. I mean loads of books and all for charity. How can you not love it? 

I'm always looking for pretty children's fairytale books for my future kids (I'm getting quite a collection) 

I adore the illustrations. 

A few Enid Blyton books and L.M Montgomery (I haven't read Anne of Green Gables before either eep!)

If you have been reading my blog for awhile you know that I'm collecting Babysitter Club books and Sweet Valley Books. 

And I'm looking forward to reading all of these books. I was going to buy The Road too. I also heard good things about Jellicoe Road.

I love books! Do any of you like to trawl for books? I give a little squeal when I find something I've been wanting to buy.

Have a great rest of week.

So many book! I was a huge Sweet Valley High fan growing up! I just read My Sister's Keeper by Judy Picoult. It was so sad that I have no intentions of seeing the movie now!

Love the post, I absolutely love the fact that you found such great books ! :)

I squeal a bit too when I find something perfect. I'm really in need for a perfect summer book, any ideas ? ;)

Kisses sweetie,

Those are beautiful books! I've only read Anne of Green Gables in the past year, so you're not alone. Let me know how Jane Austen Book Club is - I quite enjoyed the movie, but I haven't heard anything about it.

I never got into the Sweet Valley High or Anne of Green Gables books when I was younger. I loved R.L. Stine books though. I think my Mom got rid of most of my collection (GASP!) but I still have a few left. :)

Lisa said...

Gosh I totally love reading too x

Test said...

I love books and love to buy them too!

I look book fairs! I used to read all the Sweet Vallet high books and love the wakefield twins SO much!

That Tasha Tudor one is gorgeous! I have several of her books but not that one. What a lucky find! {they were favourites of mine when I was young, and I still love them today}

Can't wait to show you my kids' book collection this summer.

Oh, and since you're coming to Canada, you officially have to read Anne of Green Gables now!!!
