I've Been Book-Buying #3

 Amy by Mary Hooper // Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli // Flawless by Sara Shepard (2nd Pretty Little Liars book) // A Street Cat Named Bob by James Bowen // Losing Lila by Sarah Alderson // Crossed by Ally Condie // Matched by Ally Condie 

As always, these books are all from a local charity shop which has pretty much become my primary source for books over the past couple of years. They do books for 3 for £1 but I can't remember the last time I was actually charged the right amount...I think they just want to shift the books so practically give them away. I'm not complaining, though. :'D

Finding Amy by Mary Hooper made my day. I first read it when I was 10; I got it from the library next to my school and read it about 5 times before I actually bought my own copy, which I then proceeded to read another 20 times. It was one of my favourite books for a couple of years but then I made the stupid decision to part with it and have wanted to read it again ever since. I'm super happy to have it back in my collection. ^_^ I've been hearing about Matched, Crossed and Stargirl for years now and, like always, I'm late to the party but I'm looking forward to finally getting them read. A Street Cat Named Bob is another one I've heard a lot about and I have a feeling I'm going to love it, mainly because of my crazy cat-lady ways.

What books have you been buying recently? Have you read any of these?
Lots of love, Cat


  1. Ooh! Matched- I've heard so much about that. You must let me know if it is worth scavenging for.
    Aw, that's great that you found that book, Amy.
    Marian ^_^

    1. I'll keep you updated, haha! ^_^ xx

  2. Some really interesting books here. I read Stargirl recently and gave it 4/5 stars. In my eyes it wasn't phenomenal but it's certainly a thought provoking read.
    Matched has been unread on my shelves for easily a year and sounds brilliant.
    Really hope you enjoy these :D xx

    1. 4/5 is pretty good - I'm looking forward to it! xx

  3. I've read A Street Cat Named Bob and it's one of the most heartwarming books ever, I absolutely loved it! I've read the Matched series, which I liked but not as much as I thought I was going to . Surprisingly my favourite was the 3rd in the trilogy (Reached) which is unusual for me with trilogies. The characters and concept are great though and it's definitely worth a read ^_^

    1. I don't think I've ever liked a 3rd book in a trilogy more than the 1st! I can't wait to read them. ^_^ xx
