October Charity Shop Book Haul

October book haul featuring a stack of books

You all know I love a good rummage around a charity shop and that I am too emotionally attached to books and often want to save them (now you get why i'm single). So the past month with an onslaught of rubbish that has hit my life I have found myself picking up plenty of books in my rare free time up and down the M1. Although they have gone on the never ending 'to be read' pile I am determined to enjoy them all!

My first pick ups were from Cancer Research UK where I was lucky enough to pick up Deborah Levy's 'Hot Milk' that explores the strange nature of woman hood and Kurt Vonnegut's collection of short stories 'Armageddon in Retrospect'.

Then I got more bargains in Age UK with Richard Powers' 'The Overstory' for just £2.50! Ever since hearing Powers speak at 'Off The Shelf Festival' in Sheffield about this novel I have been keeping my eye out for it! It's a hefty book but I have heard amazing things about the intertwining of human life and that of trees. Have you read it? Let me know what you think. 

I also got Sarah Waters' 'The Paying Guest'! I've yet to read a Waters novel that I didn't love so I know this will get read eventually! I'm just missing 'Affinity' now.

Next up were some absolute bargains from LOROS which is a hospice charity in Leicestershire and I cannot wait to check their charity shop out again. My Grandma is an avid reader too and I came out with enough books to keep us both busy for a while. 

Alongside some bestsellers I picked up Ann Rule's 'The Stranger Beside me' about Ted Bundy which I cannot wait to read even with its teeny tiny font!

My final additions to my October haul were from St Luke's Hospice Charity Shop in Sheffield with some more wintery additions from Laini Taylor and John Green. As well as my continued hunt for Phillip Pullman and this lovely Norton Anthology. 

I think a charity shop or car boot book rummage is one of my favourite things to do! Anyone else agree?
