So I absoloutly love books and for the pst few years I have been using a kindle, then the other day I realised just how much I miss the actual feel of books. So since it's just been Christmas and I have money, I thought I may as well just buy all the actual books I want now and hoard them altogether, rather than buying them at regular intervals, may as well just spend all the money now! Although I do want to save my money for a camera and use some for make up and stuff, I have got my heart set on books at the moment and I know this feeling won't fade.

Firstly, although I've read the majority of John Greens books on my kindle, with the exception of Will Grayson, Will Grayson and Let It Snow, I want them all in real life form. It started off with me just wanting the ones I read in real life, but then I thought why not get them all!? Then I found out my cousin had all his books and now my heart just aches for them, so I think I will buy all his books and get my mum to pay for some since she does want to read TFIOS and Looking For Alaska.
Now if you haven't read any of John Greens books, go. Do it now. All of them will somehow break your heart, but his books are just so amazing and although they are situations which would most likely never happen to you, it's so easy to relate with the characters and so easy to fall in love with them all.
So yes, my main mission is to build up my John Green collection, but I might do this one over time, start off buying the ones I havent read and then get the ones I have later on. It may seem like a waste since I've already read them, but I do reread basically all of my books (may have read TFIOS eleven times woops...) and getting them in real life would just make everything fabulous

Now I do love action books/in the future like Divergent (which I highly recommend if you love The Hunger Games/that type of genre) but I might just get them on my kindle. I don't know how to explain it, I do love Divergent and all these books, but since I have to pay for books myself usually, they are cheaper on the kindle so buying the actual book will be a luxury and I want to buy books that will mean something to me. Although they all do, I don't know how to explain, but books that make me thing and will make an impact on my life. I don't know how to explain but I like to get coming of age books really in real life and yeah books that I could possibly relate to being a teenager or that will really make me think. I also want a few classics, I've been dying to read To Kill A Mockingbird since I heard Jackson talking about it on Hannah Montanna when I was a young 'un and I don't know how I heard of Catcher In The Rye, but i had and when I was researching books the other day I saw it and though it seemed like a classic too, and you can't not buy the actual book form of a classic!

But yeah, most of these books are coming of age books or classics and will hopefully be a roller-coaster of emotions..but I'm saying that now then when I'm reading the book I'll be so angry at myself for buying a book that goes from so happy to absolutely devastating! Not going to lie, I do cry at books...all the time..even when I know what's coming, or is blatantly obvious I cry no matter how many times I've read it! But I'm wittering on now, but yes this is the list of books that I also want to buy and I've never read any of these. 
I'm not too fond of some of these covers, but the actual story seems good and most have good reviews.

  • Awaken- Katie Kacvinsky
  • Annie On My Mind- Nany Garden
  • Catcher In The Rye- J.D. Salinger
  • Ask The Passengers- A.S King
  • The Death And Life Of Charlie St.Cloud- Ben Sherwood
  • Me And Earl And The Dying Girl- Jesse Andrews
  • To Kill A Mockingbird- Harper Lee
  • The Miseducation Of Cameron Post- Emily M. Danforth


  1. I bought Green's books long time ago and I totally agree with you! Whomever hasn't read them yet, they have to! However, I still gotta buy 'Let it Snow', I heard it's a very relaxing read. Oh, oh, and I also desperately want Me, Earl & the Dying Girl for so long aahhh!


    1. I really want them but I don't know a good, cheap place to look for them!x

  2. I love john green's books so much! It's always nice to have classics in hard copy as well!

    1. I love them but oh my goodness they make me cry!x

  3. I totally agree! I have tried reading books on my iPad, but buying the paper version is soo much better! I adore John Green books (my first post on my blog!) and although I was forced to read To Kill a Mockingbird for my English exams, I actually really enjoyed it! :) Lovely blog :) Rachel x
