On My Bookshelf (8)

This meme is inspired by the similar meme, 'In My Mailbox' created by The Story Siren

Bought (I actually bought all of these...):
- Peter Pan & Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens by J.M.Barrie - I found this one in an antique book store in Chichester for £2.50, it smelled so lovely in there
- The Welsh Girl by Peter Ho Davies - I also bought this one with the Peter Pan on for £2.50. I've seen it before in magazines but never found the actual book. A week later, I was in WHSmiths, and saw it in the Adult Section...
- Girl with a Pearl Earring by Tracy Chevalier - I love this book so much that when I saw it on my first day working in Oxfam, that I bought it for £2.99. Worth it.
- The Rogue's Princess by Eve Edwards - I think this is the last one in the series, although I wish it wasn't. I actually forgot I pre-ordered this last month so was so delighted when I found it on my doorstep!

The necklace hanging down is one that I have been looking at and wanted for weeks and weeks in Accessorize, but I wasn't sure if it was worth £9. So, yesterday I went shopping with my mum to have a look in the sales and we found this in on the sale rack for £2.70, 70% off. I was preeeetty happy. :)

Have a lovely week, guys :)


  1. Yay- the Rogue's Princess! I hope you enjoy it just as much I did. I love that necklace- what a bargain for Accessorize. I went sales shopping too today :)

  2. I know! I love it. Oh did you get anything?

    I love the sales and it's great for me that I'm off as they start quite early now.

    Cannot wait to read The Rogue's Princess! :)

  3. What a gorgeous necklace! And I love buying books second hand - really cheap and they usually smell better! haha :)
    Also, I emailed you with my choices for Guest Post :)

  4. I noticed they seem to be getting earlier too- it hardly feels like summer's begun for me but they're hear already. I got a flowery dorothy perkins top and some chino trousers from new look :)

    I can't wait to hear what you think of it!

  5. Yeah it's annoying because it feels like your buying clothes before summer has started. Although, I saw coats in Topshop the other day :/

    ooo, they sound very nice. I really want just some nice plain trousers that aren't jeans but are comfortable like leggings. But I'm really tall and it's SO hard to find trousers that fit with me :(
