A couple of weeks ago, I was the lucky winner of Reads & Reels’ 400 follower giveaway which was such a nice surprise as I’d never won anything before! The prize for this giveaway was a £15 Amazon voucher, which, of course, I bought books with! I was lucky to find some really great bargains while browsing and managed to get 4 books with my voucher! (I paid £2 extra, over the £15).
1984 by George Orwell – £5.59
So after wanting to read this book for a long ol’ time, I finally got round to purchasing it! When I saw it, in this Penguin Modern Classics style, I knew I had to get it! I’m in love with how it’s presented – the title and author name being censored by a big black bar. From what I know of the story, it’s a perfect representation!
Brave New World by Aldous Huxley – £6.29
Brave New World is another book I’ve been meaning to read for ages. I’ve put it in my Amazon basket a million times and have always talked myself out of buying it, but not this time! I’ve decided I want to read some more modern classics as I can’t remember the last time a book really moved me. I read too many throwaway thrillers and I need something more mentally challenging!
Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult – £2.99
Yes, you read that right, I got this for £2.99, brand new!
If you’ve been following me for a while you’ll know that To Kill a Mockingbird is my favourite book of all time so when I read this is being called TKAMB for the 21st Century, I knew I had to get it to see how it compares. I have read one Picoult novel in the past, Nineteen Minutes, which I remember loving (though I read it years ago!) so I’m really hoping I’ll like this one too!
The Essex Serpent by Sarah Perry – £2.99
Yep, that’s right, another book for just £2.99! Amazon might be a faceless company but they sure know how to treat people on a budget.
This book has been in my TBR for a while now, and since I’m so desperate for a new historical fiction to read, I thought I couldn’t pass this one up (especially not for so cheap!). I’ve heard mixed things about this… I hope I enjoy it, but even if not… look at that cover art 😍
A huge massive thank you to Reads & Reels for giving me the opportunity to win this giveaway! I’m so happy with all my purchases and I can’t wait to get my teeth into them.
Have you read any of the books? I’d love to hear your thoughts on them!
