Book Haul//// Penguin Moderns- Books of May 2018- Part-I.


May has so far been a glorious month as far as book buying goes. I've bought some books online and some from bookshops too. 

Today I want to share a very special haul. A haul entirely of these minty gorgeous Penguin Moderns! Ah! Would you just look at them? 
I had been lusting over them for a while but for some odd reason they are kinda pricey online and most of have them have a hefty delivery charge as well! No fun. So I meant to pick them up when I saw them in a bookshop in person. 
Over this weekend, I finally saw them in Wayward and Wise and bought 10 of these beauties. 
I just couldn't resist! 
I think this whole 'mini' trend in books is a good thing be. It is a quick and swift way to read some good fiction and sample a writer you mayn't tried before. Plus, let's be honest these book are adorable. I know you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover but God, just see these beauties. Plus these are great to have in your bag and on the go and at 50 bucks a pop these are pocket friendly too. A whole lot of plusses if you ask me! 

Let's see them now shall we? 

I am so kicked I finally got my hands on these beauties.
