First Book Buys of 2015.
These are in fact the first books I bought this calendar year. I only just got around to putting up the photos. Because I am me.
Since starting a new job in February, I've found it quite hard to balance work and, well, anything. Let alone reading for fun. Given the choice, I usually elect to sleep. And I still find myself absolutely shattered at the end of the day and week. It's something I'm still adjusting to. Adjusting to adulting. I made a video not too long ago listing out all the books I planned to read this year. And realistically, many of those titles probably won't get read this year. Even with my hols (am I officially British or what) coming up a week from today (*dancing lady emoji*).
I picked these two up on a chilly January afternoon at the HMV in Liverpool One. I'm not one to do book shopping in HMV--but I recall there being a surprisingly good post-Christmas selection and discount on. I am a little bummed that I didn't realise Crash also comes in this cover, which I prefer. But maybe I can deface this one with annotations and treat myself one day to a pristine copy of the other.
Yep, I'm jetting off to La Carihuela next week for a no-internet (involuntary) beach getaway. I've never been to Spain, and I don't speak a lick of Spanish so should be delightful. Then a week after getting back from vacation I AM MOVING HOUSE. Well, moving flats. Fingers crossed that nothing falls through between now and then but the general jist is that I am very excited to really decorate this place as my own. And I'm itching to document that as much as I can here on the blog.
