As you guys might have noticed, I have a new header! My blog looked kind of horrifying for a while after I experimented with some design stuff, but I was too busy with essays and other university things to take care of it. So today I finally decided to sit down and dedicate some time to figuring out what I want my blog to look like. I’m pretty happy with the header now – it’s not perfect, but it’s clear and relatively pretty. I hope you guys like it!
But moving on to the actual blog post: I went on a bookshop crawl around the beautiful city of Norwich on Friday, and after visiting six different bookshops I ended up with 10 new books. So this is going to be an overview of the bookshops and what kind of books they sell, as well as a book haul! Let’s get right into it.

If you know me, you know I love short books, especially if they’re published by small, independent presses. There was a zine & print fair in Norwich a while back, and I couldn’t resist picking up some things – poetry collections, short stories, and even a graphic novel!

I’m finally back from London! The London Book Fair was amazing, and while I will definitely dedicate a whole post to what the event was like, I thought I would first share with you the books that I got in the big city! I only got one of these at the actual fair, because the LBF is mainly an industry event with workshops and panels for people who want to go into publishing or want to advance their publishing careers. But of course I couldn’t resist visiting some bookshops on my first ever trip to London – and this lovely haul is the result.

Happy World Book Day everyone! The University of East Anglia hosted a book fair in honour of this special day, and of course I couldn’t miss out on it! I wanted to just browse really quickly and then leave for a different event I had planned to go to, but … well … we all know what book browsing is like. So I ended up staying for almost two hours and I bought way too much! It was all fairly cheap, but still. I’m a student, when am I gonna have the time to read all of this?
The fair had a few different stalls selling different types of literature. Some sold actual books, but there were also stalls by independent publishers, selling zines and poetry collections. I picked up a bit of everything, so let’s get right into it!

You know how I’m always so proud of the fact that I don’t buy books until I have a very small TBR? Well, I kind of cheated. But I have my reasons.
My mom and I went to the market this Sunday. The word “market” doesn’t sound like a place where you’d find great books, but I live on a touristy island, so other rules apply. There are two book-selling stalls at this market, both for charity purposes. One collects money for the local animal shelter (I did a book haul with books from there in April, which you can check out here), and the other for, I believe, a rehab centre.
Both these stalls sell used books that were donated, and I’ve given them books myself on various occasions. I just love them a lot, and I always find amazing books there. So that’s my excuse – I hadn’t been to the market in a while, and I couldn’t just ignore the books, could I?

Before I start showing you guys the books I bought from AbeBooks, I need to share a little something. I’m on Bloglovin now! I wouldn’t announce it like this (it’s really not that big of a deal), but to verify my blog I need to share this silly little link. So whatever, here we go. Follow my blog with Bloglovin.
I bought a ridiculous amount of books (at least for my standards) this month: 23 in total. I already did two separate April hauls, one from a charity fair thing and one from Bookdepository. This is my final haul, which consists of 10 books I got from AbeBooks.

I’ve decided to split the books I bought this month into three separate hauls. The main reason for that is that it’s too much otherwise. I bought a total of 23 books in the month of April. I don’t even know how.
I’ve already posted my first haul over here. It’s a total of six books, which I bought at a charity fair kind of thing. This haul, on the other hand, is another six books, all from the online book buying site Bookdepository.
