It was my birthday last month (this post has been a long time coming…) and I got some lovely books from some lovely people!
My brother bought me Dear Fahrenheit 451 which I’ve been dying to read and is one of the books I need to read to complete my POPSUGAR Reading Challenge.
When I went to the New Suns Feminist Literary Festival I had a tarot card reading from the lovely Jen from Litwitchure and I loved it. I’ve always been interested in astrology and things like this, and mentioned to my mum that I’d love to learn how to read tarot cards, so she bought me this beautiful book, The Book of Tarot, to get me started – I’ll post more pictures of it soon because it really is pretty. A friend of mine also bought me a tarot deck so no excuses not to get stuck in!
Fruit of the Drunken Tree has been on my wishlist forever, so it was a perfect present from my brother’s girlfriend. She also got me this pretty floral mug too. Fruit of the Drunken Tree was originally going to be a read for the reading challenge but I replaced it with something I already owned when I was trying to be good and not buy books!
Finally, my boss surprised me with this copy of Becoming, Michelle Obama’s autobiography! I’m almost finished with it and it’s terrific – will review soon!
