I definitely ended up spending more than I wanted to spend this month on books, buuuut #noregrets.
So, like a good little book blogger, I took a bunch of artsy-fartsy pictures of all the books I got this month.
Let’s take a look!
“The murderer is with us – on the train now…”
Just after midnight, the famous Orient Express is stopped in its tracks by a snowdrift. By morning, the millionaire Samuel Ratchett lies dead in his compartment, stabbed a dozen times, his door locked from the inside. One of his fellow passengers must be the murderer.
Isolated by the storm and with a killer in their midst, detective Hercule Poirot must find the killer amongst a dozen of the dead man’s enemies, before the murderer decides to strike again…
Pairing it with some fake leaves makes it look like the book is bleeding greenery. #aesthetic
But in all seriousness, I can’t wait to read this. I read And Then There Were None, loved it so much I convinced my boyfriend to read it, then we watched the TV mini-series, and we saw the trailer for this movie when we were watching Wonder Woman and we were both just like YAS! And bought ourselves a copy at Barnes & Noble after the movie.
An approved textbook at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry since publication, Newt Scamander’s masterpiece has entertained wizarding families through the generations. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is an indispensable introduction to the magical beasts of the wizarding world.
The Tales of Beedle the Bard, a wizarding classic, first came to Muggle readers’ attention in the book known as Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Now, thanks to Hermione Granger’s new translation from the ancient runes, we present this stunning edition with an introduction, notes, and illustrations by J.K. Rowling, and extensive commentary by Albus Dumbledore.
Never before have Muggles been privy to these richly imaginative tales: “The Wizard and the Hopping Pot,” “The Fountain of Fair Fortune,” “The Warlock’s Hairy Heart,” “Babbitty Rabbitty and Her Cackling Stump,” and of course “The Tale of the Three Brothers.” But not only are they the equal of fairy tales we know and love, reading them gives new insight into the wizarding world.
If you have ever asked yourself where the Golden Snitch came from, how the Bludgers came into existence, or why the Wigtown Wanderers have pictures of meat cleavers on their robes, you need Quidditch Through the Ages. This invaluable volume is consulted by young Quidditch fans on an almost daily basis.
Proceeds from the sale of this book will go to Comic Relief, who will use your money to continue improving and changing lives — work that is even more important and astonishing than the three-and-a-half-second capture of the Golden Snitch by Roderick Plumpton in 1921.

These editions are just absolutely gorgeous. Of course I couldn’t just get ONE! Every book lover knows it is important to complete a set!
It has been four months since a mysterious obsidian stone fell into Kell’s possession. Four months since his path crossed with Delilah Bard. Four months since Prince Rhy was wounded, and since the nefarious Dane twins of White London fell, and four months since the stone was cast with Holland’s dying body through the rift–back into Black London.
Now, restless after having given up his smuggling habit, Kell is visited by dreams of ominous magical events, waking only to think of Lila, who disappeared from the docks as she always meant to do. As Red London finalizes preparations for the Element Games–an extravagant international competition of magic meant to entertain and keep healthy the ties between neighboring countries–a certain pirate ship draws closer, carrying old friends back into port.
And while Red London is caught up in the pageantry and thrills of the Games, another London is coming back to life. After all, a shadow that was gone in the night will reappear in the morning. But the balance of magic is ever perilous, and for one city to flourish, another London must fall.
Just finished A Darker Shade of Magic and knew I wanted to continue the series and immediately hopped on Amazon and ordered this bad boy! Can’t wait to start.
And last, but certainly not least…
I saw Mr. Frodo here at Hot Topic and knew I had to take him home. (I’m so glad they’re making Pop Figures again for LOTR!) I honestly want the entire set, (except for Gandalf because he looks really pissed off and lacks his hat, which makes me so sad because he’s my favorite character) but then they’d be competing for space on my bookshelves and we can’t have that.
I took a few more pics than this, but I’ll save those for my bookstagram so if you’re just DYING to see what my other aesthetic shots are you’ll just have to follow me there.
Honestly by the end of my pic spam you’ll probably be thinking:
‘Til next time, folks!
NOTE: All gifs shown were created by me, but feel free to use wherever (just don’t claim as your own)!
Psssst! I have a Twitter now. No promises on using it very well, but I’m trying to put myself onto the platforms that fellow booklovers are using.
