Boxing Day Book Haul

Hi fellow readers! 

With the passing of Christmas comes every shopaholic's dream: Boxing Day. For those of you who don't know, Boxing Day is the day after Christmas (but most sales last all week) where many retailers in Canada and the UK have sails (a lot like Black Friday). 

Being an avid book reader, I knew I would hAve to tale advantage of my Christmas money and go to chapters. Much to my surprise, Chapters was having 30% off any hardcover book. I was in heaven! I immediately went to look for Rainbow Rowell's Eleanor & Park and I was happy to have found it along with Fangirl by the same author. I then found a paperback version of Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys.


I am a huge fan of young adult fiction as well as historical fiction. I have read many book blogs which recommend all three of these books. I especially loved seeing the John Green review on the back of Eleanor & Park. I also enjoy love stories so I am excited to begin reading Rainbow Rowell's books. 

As one can see, each of the covers of these books are just gorgeous in all aspects. The simplicity of Eleanor & Park as well as Fangirl just makes me hesitate to put them away on a shelf. Between Shades of Gray has a beautiful closed eyelid with snow falling down on it. Absolutely stunning.

Look forward to book reviews on each of these books in the New Year. Let me know in the comments if you have read any of these books and what you thought of them!

Happy Reading,


  1. I love Eleanor & Park! Hope you enjoy it! It's among my favorites of 2013! Thanks for stopping by my review of Fangirl! :)

  2. I have heard so many good things about Rainbow Rowell, your blog included, so they are the books I am most looking forward to reading.
