With spring finally arriving i've been mooching around the charity shops and the May Bank Holiday brought with it plenty of tat sold in a field from a car boot. So with my main goal always to add to my never ending to be read pile I couldn't resist a few books.

Typewriter teeth book haul  gone girl and 11.22.63 by stephen king

First up was my visit to The British Heart Foundation where I picked up Gillian Flynn's 'Gone Girl', (yeah I know - how have I not read it yet?) Stephen King's '11.22.63' about a time traveller in an alternate history who attempts to prevent the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Alongside Sara Pascoe's 'Animal,' an exploration of the female body alongside autobiography and history. 

Sara Pascoe is touring with 'Lads, Lads, Lads' at the minute and I am so excited as we've got tickets for two shows. Fancy joining me? Find out more here.

I also picked up Jack Kerouac's 'On The Road' and SJ Watsons' 'Before I Go To Sleep' in another branch of The British Heart Foundation. No charity shop favouritism here, they just had the best book selection this time.

And the final bit of May's goodies I picked up a car boot sale whilst visiting my grandparents. I managed to get Mindy Kailing's 'Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?,  Amy Schumer's 'The Girl With The Lower Back Tattoo' and Kurt Cobain's Journals all followed by a lovely rhubarb gin ginger in the sun.
