Hauls

WordPress apparently ate the first version I wrote of this, so here’s attempt two at writing a mix between a book haul and a general life update post.

Life Update & Book Haul!

While I’ve been gone from blogging, I’ve been working on re-establishing my Instagram, @novellique, into a theme and profile page that I like and enjoy working on.

Reading the cyborg and cyberpunk books for next semester at university has driven me towards reading more sci-fi books, including Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams and Alastair Reynold’s Revelation Space. In another Waterstones trip I also picked up a constellation notebook and a 2018/19 diary which I hope to start bullet journaling in.

I got a polaroid camera for my birthday – it’s an Instax Mini 9 and I love it, especially for taking the occasional picture of plants and, of course, family and friends. I’ve started constructing a string of fairy lights with the best selection of pictures I’ve taken so far – I’ll be sharing it on Instagram Stories once I can find the right lighting conditions.

If you have an Instagram account about reading, writing or blogging please drop it in the comments and I’ll give you a follow. I’m also looking at setting up a DM group for book bloggers – let me know if this is something you would be interested in!

EDIT 22/06/18: I’ve been having an issue with the editing software I’m using for my Instagram, so I’ve decided I’ll be screenshotting from my Instagram rather than embedding them in case I decide to re-edit/upload some of the pictures featured here.

Have you bought any books recently? Let me know in the comments!

By now I believe I’ve recieved all of the books on my reading list for semester one of year two. Read on to find out which modules I’m taking and what the required reading for each is!

June Book Haul

The total cost of this book haul came to just over £82! I’m actually pleased with this, despite how expensive it was, because I managed to get every book (except two) for second hand through Amazon and therefore I’ve spent a lot less than my friends.

I’ve gone through and used the Goodreads covers for the breakdown of each specific book, because boy oh boy there are a lot of books in my room right now.
