Hello, my pretty book worms. I am back again and it is so fun to be blogging for a short time🤣🤣🤣. I know in a few days I will again say…I am so sorry I have been super busy, blah, blah, blah well, isn’t that just me🤪🤪??? Bear with me, please. Okay, so this is part two of the haul and I am not very excited about it and the reasons will be told below. So let’s go and check out the 10 free books that I got. Come along people.
So they sent the parcel a month late and besides that, they sent childish books. I am not very happy with either their services or their books as about 5 of them are for kids. I can do light reading because I got these books and I also have exams but still I think I deserved a little better books. So come along and see what they sent in free books. Let’s go.
1. Fatbag: The Demon Vacuum Cleaner by Jeremy Strong.
Elsie Bunce could see that Fatbag was no ordinary vacuum cleaner. He had a hungry-looking mouth and he seemed to be staring at her. Little did she know that Fatbag had an evil plan … Can he be stopped in time!
So I got this baby book free with my 10 books. I haven’t read it but I think this light read will be good during my exams time as I won’t have to pressure my brain with the mystery and all that. I want happy that I got this book but it’s ok. I don’t mind much as I can’t do anything.
2. Billy Bonkers by Giles Andreae.
Mad stuff just happens with Billy Bonkers! Billy is a bouncy, bubbly, bonkers boy. And wherever he goes, off-the-wall adventures always seem to follow. From bouncing so hard on his trampoline that he bounces up, up and away…into space, and eating so much porridge his stomach puffs up and he floats into the garden tree (and gets stuck…until he burps anyway), to a flight on a deflating lilo to biff a big, vicious shark right on the nose! Along with his wacky dad, brainy sister and down-to-earth mum, Billy’s life is never boring, it’s bonkers! This zany text is perfectly accompanied by Nick Sharratt’s energetic illustrations.
I read this book and it was kind of fun. During my exams, it was a nice and light read that really relaxed me. I am preparing the review, hopefully, it will be out soon. So keep your tiny eyes open people.
3. Not Yeti by Alan Gibbons.
In a peaceful suberb of Liverpool 3 ‘yetis” are on the loose. meanwhile Joe’s parents are kidnapped and before he knows it he is dumped with his awful Great Aunt Pellagra. Together joe and the Yetis set out to find whats going on.
This is a children’s mystery novel for beginners and I was really interested when I saw it for the first time. I liked how fun the mystery is and I am always interested in yetis so I forgave Bookchor for sending me this book for free.
4. The Bogwater Witches by Kathy Still.
When Thora and Sybil find a baby dumped on the doorstep of Bogwater Cottage, they are thrilled.
The baby can only be a Giftwitch, who will grow up to be an evil more powerful witch than they are.
But Betty has other ideas.
She just wants to be an ordinary girl.
I even read this book and it was not so fun. I felt like I am reading Cinderella in a witchy atmosphere. I found it quite boring and I don’t think I will be reviewing this book so just see me not liking this book here. Maybe it is because I am old now or I don’t know what but I felt this book was “an old wine in new bottle” kind of novel.
5. High School Musical: Wildcat Spirit.
It’s Spirit Week at East High, and everyone is excited. There will be costume days, a pep rally for the basketball game, and finally, the crowning of the Spirit King and Queen. But the most exciting part of the week is the Sadie Hawkins dance: The girls get to ask the boys! Gabriella is planning to ask Troy, but when she overhears something her mom says on the phone, she is too devastated to even think about the dance. Could it be that they’re moving again? Gabriella is so happy at East High. Would her mother really take her away from all her friends?
I don’t like teen romance and high school stuff novels at all. So I am a bit disappointed with this book. I don’t think I might read it any time soon as none of this stuff is true and secondly I hate romance and I can’t bear to read this book.
6. Heidi by Johanna Spyri.
Little orphan Heidi goes to live high in the Alps with her gruff grandfather and brings happiness to all who know her on the mountain. When Heidi goes to Frankfurt to work in a wealthy household, she dreams of returning to the mountains and meadows, her friend Peter, and her beloved grandfather.
I finished reading and reviewing this book and it was so much fun. I totally loved Heidi and I can’t even imagine a better classic than this one. The review is out and I will post the link below⬇⬇⬇.
7. Great Expectations by Charles Dickens.
‘In what may be Dickens’s best novel, humble, orphaned Pip is apprenticed to the dirty work of the forge but dares to dream of becoming a gentleman — and one day, under sudden and enigmatic circumstances, he finds himself in possession of “great expectations.” In this gripping tale of crime and guilt, revenge and reward, the compelling characters include Magwitch, the fearful and fearsome convict; Estella, whose beauty is excelled only by her haughtiness; and the embittered Miss Havisham, an eccentric jilted bride
I have taken up a buddy read on Instagram with a few of my friends for this novel. I am so excited to read it as it will be another classic ticked off from my classics challenge and I couldn’t be any happier. I hope to enjoy this book too as it does look interesting and I am also glad that I got this and Heidi as free books😍😍.
8. Home Life: Book Three by Alice Thomas Ellis.
This is a third collection of weekly articles from the “Spectator” in which Alice Thomas Ellis brings wit and wisdom to her commentary on the ups and downs of daily life in town and country.
There are so many positive reviews for this book on goodreads and Amazon that I will read this one soon. People love this book a lot and hopefully, I will like it too. I am looking for the other 2 books so that I can read all the books together.
9. The Cowboy’s Valentine Bride by Patricia Johns.
A Time to Heal
Brody Mason needs a nurse. As soon as he can walk again, he’ll leave Hope, Montana, and go straight back to the army. But Kaitlyn Harpe? That’s adding insult to injury. Not just because she’s a daily reminder that Brody’s fiancée, Kate’s sister, married his best friend while he was fighting in Afghanistan. But because Kaitlyn had kept the truth from him.
The Kaitlyn he knew before he deployed would never have perpetuated a lie like that. But this new person—the confident, beautiful woman with hidden depths in her eyes—is nothing like the shy, serious girl he knew. This Kaitlyn troubles him. Because Brody is starting to wonder if he proposed to the wrong sister…
I am so damn angry at Bookchor for sending me this book as I totally hate romance and now I have to keep this book as I got it🙄🙄. I won’t read it that’s for sure. I might end up selling it or giving it to someone else so that I don’t have to bear it around me😏😏.
10. The Twenty Year Itch by Linda Kelsey.
When Julie’s husband of 20 years announces that he is giving up his job to embark on an adult gap year leaving his salary & Julie behind, she puts her marriage under the microscope. Turning to her friends for comfort & advice, Julie finds that their relationships are falling apart too.
This book looks okayish for me. My mom got a bit interested in it so I might keep this one and read it someday in my life. I am not very happy that I have it but it’s ok😒😒.
So that’s it. Those are the twenty books that I got from the Bookchor website. It was a nice experience but I was not very satisfied with the free 10 books. Most of them were childish and the others were boring🙄🙄. I won’t be buying any more books on offers like this so I am fine with this one time experience.
So hope you liked this post and had a good time reading my haul. See you all soon (I don’t know how soon but soon…🤪🤪) and until then…
