I LOVE FREE BOOKS.
Just thought I'd make that clear. I was joyous at the weekend after I spotted the Waterstones sale - 99p books! You can't go wrong. I sifted through a big pile pretty thoroughly because I didn't want to miss any gems.
[EDIT] Duh, forgot to say the best bit! Not only were they only 99p but I found a 6 month old book voucher in my purse and used that. So there were actually free. Clearly I got over-excited and forgot to mention that!
I came away with five books. Lucia Victrix by EF Benson, Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follet (which I've already read but I bought it for Tom, it's very good), Cuckoo by Julia Crouch, Map of Time by Felix Palma and a Martina Cole.
I've just finished reading Cuckoo today and it's very good, about a woman who lets her best friend stay and then her life starts to go awry!
Last week I also read Men I've Loved Before by Adele Parks which was pretty good and The Snowman by Jo Nesbo - terrifying! I'm not sure whether I'm getting more wimpy or it was actually scary, but it's a good read. I read another chick-lit book as well but it's fallen out of my mind already, I'm terrible for that.
I bought three dresses from Dorothy Perkins recently, I got all three for £38 with the sale and my NUS card, bargain. Here are a couple of them:
I'm not going to do a big list of stuff I got for Christmas but there'll be loads of new stuff popping up in the next few posts. Although I am doing a full post of the package I got from La Dama from the FHCS Christmas Present swap because it was bloody amazing and so thoughtful. Also coming soon; 2012, the year of the hat?
