Hello clouds and cloudettes, I am melting from the heatwave going through Australia at the moment. Thankfully I got to escape the heatwave (for the most part) with our bi-annual Lifeline Bookfest, the biggest second hand book fair in the world! As always, it’s great catching up with local bookworms and getting lots of great bargains. It’s basically two massive exhibition halls filled with rows and rows of books to satisfy the inner bookworm. I’ve been going for years ever since I was a kid, and it’s something we definitely look forward to!
The YA section is quite limited, so we usually get up before the door opens and head in. And it’s all raising money for Lifeline too which is even better!
Thank you Pan Macmillan Australia and HarperCollins for sending me these review copies!
Here’s the haul I picked up at Lifeline Bookfest. I have read all of these except Reality Boy and Graffiti Moon, just collecting hardbacks/other editions of books that I love. I also lost my copy of The Book Thief so was stoked to find this for $4!
I also did a quick booktube video showing off my haul:
Rosemary and Rue by Seanan McGuire
Attachments by Rainbow Rowell – Review
The Hunger Games Luxury Edition by Suzanne Collins
Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
Reality Boy by A.S. King
The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon– Review
