Back With a Book Haul and my Booktube Debut!

Hello everyone! Sorry for the blog silence lately. Real life has gotten in the way but I had things I wanted to share so I'm back for a brief spell. It's taken me a while to get round to making this post but if you follow me on Twitter then you'll probably have seen me talk about it already!

Last week I met up with my friend Daisy who just so happens to be an awesome booktuber. We've known each other since before we started book blogging and it's been really fun having somebody I can chat to about all things books on our blogging journeys! So we finally got to make a video for her channel which was so much fun. We did the Reading Habits tag together and you can watch it below (I'm the one on the right!):

We also went book shopping (because duh, you have to go book shopping with a fellow book blogger!) and I picked up the following books:

City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare
The Manifesto on How to be Interesting by Holly Bourne

I've been slowly collecting The Mortal Instruments series because I borrowed the books when I read them originally. I have every book except City of Heavenly Fire now - which I still haven't read! So I'm re-reading the series in the build up.

And after reading and adoring Soulmates I decided that I will read every book Holly Bourne ever writes based purely on that, so I squealed and danced about when I saw her new book on the shelves. I also persuaded Daisy to buy Soulmates, hurrah!

I've acquired a few books this week as well. I had a WHSmith gift card with some money left on it so I used it to by the final two books in The Maze Runner trilogy - The Scorch Trials and The Death Cure by James Dashner.

I really enjoyed the first one and with the film being released this year, I'm even more excited to get back into that world.

I also picked up a few charity shop bargains. The Luxe by Anna Godbersen, Angel by L.A Weatherly and Lyra's Oxford by Phillip Pullman. The first two I've wanted to read for a while, and I'm currently in the middle of a series re-read of His Dark Materials so it'll by nice to add Lyra's Oxford into that!

So that's what's been happening with me lately! Have you read any of these books? Let me know in the comments! And as always, you can keep up with me on Twitter @TotalTeenFic
