Spiffingly Good Books

According to Choncey Boddington

“There are books that have defined moments in my life, books which have carved out pieces of my heart and took up unapologetic residence. I have this irrational fear…that if I re-read it, I’ll lose the magic of that book. I don’t want to tarnish the memories. Each re-read of a book speaks to you differently, and I want to hold onto exactly how these books spoke to me at a specific moment in time.”

The July Book Haul List!

People have been saying that they don’t catch all of the books that I mention in my book haul vlogs! Therefore I’ve decided to always compose a hyperlinked list of the books so that you can see exactly what they are and read their blurb etc.

The book list will compose of links to the Book Depository website, which is my second favourite online bookstore! It’s free shipping world wide because it’s their mission to make books cheaply and easily accessible to everyone (so you have no excuses not to be reading:P)

BUT I want you guys to know I’m actually an affiliate to this website. This means that if you were to purchase a book from my recommendation link I would receive commission from the sale. So obviously I want you guys to know honestly why the links direct you to this specific website so you’re free to make your own choice. I’ve used this company for a long time now & they’ve never let me down so I’m honoured to be an affiliate, but it’s your choice whether or not you use them, but I just wanted to take the time to explain my association with the website with you guys.

So now onto my July Book Haul list!
