Book Haul - The Works & Sainsbury's.

Hi guys! 
Today I'm bringing you another book haul!! I've been doing some serious book haulage lately and I was going to wait and do one huge haul, but I think lots of littler ones is much funner, for me and you guys!!

The Works

Jessie Hearts NYC by Keris Stainton
Synopsis - Jessie's just arrived in New York, hoping to forget about her awful ex.
New Yorker Finn is in love with his best friend's girlfriend.
They might be perfect together, but in a city of eight million people, will they find each other?
It was 3 for £5 in The Works, which is a discount book store in the UK, and my boyfriend got one book and I got two.
I was drawn to this book because of the gorgeous golden cover and I love books set in New York city so I thought this sounded like a good read for me!

The Eyre Affair - Jasper Fforde
Synopsis - There is another 1985, somewhere in the could-have-been, where the Crimean war still rages, dodos are regenerated in home-cloning kits and everyone is deeply disappointed by the ending of 'Jane Eyre'. In this world there are no jet-liners or computers, but there are policemen who can travel across time, a Welsh republic, a great interest in all things literary - and a woman called Thursday Next.
I've seen a few people talking about this book on booktube and I just love this cover! I love how vintage and ''used'' it looks.


I Heart Paris by Lindsey Kelk
Synopsis - Angela is in the city of love – but romance is taking a nose-dive…
When Angela Clark’s boyfriend Alex suggests a trip to Paris at the same time as hip fashion mag Belle asks her to write a piece, she jumps at the chance.
But even as she’s falling for the joie de vivre of Paris, someone’s conspiring to sabotage her big break. And when she spots Alex having a tête-à-tête with his ex in a local bar, Angela’s dreams of Parisian passion all start crashing down around her.
With London and her old life only a train journey away, Angela can’t decide if should stay and face the music or run away home…
Sainsbury's supermarket were also have a 3 for £5 deal on all of their books so I jumped straight on that wagon, and I kept all three for myself this time! 
I Heart Paris is the third book in the I Heart... series by Lindsey Kelk, I've read the first one and I didn't own the second one yet when I bought this one, but I knew I loved the series so thought I was going to buy it eventually so might as well snap it up as part of this deal!

Wife 22 by Melanie Gideon
Synopsis - A successful marriage is like growing a temperamental plant – you have to work hard and tend to it carefully, as Alice Buckle is just discovering.
Despite her husband, two children and straight-talking best friend, Alice suddenly feels lost. Is it just that she’s turning the age her mother was when she lost her? Or is it that she and her husband seem to have run out of things to say to each other?
Help comes in an unexpected form. When Alice starts unburdening herself to a complete stranger online, she starts to see things in a new light. Freed by the anonymity – she is known only as Wife 22 – she suddenly remembers all the reasons she fell in love with her husband in the first place.
But in the course of baring all, is Alice risking losing everything she once held so dear?
This was a bit of a filler pick, because I couldn't find another book amongst the choices that were available that was on my wishlist, but I thought the synopsis of this book sounded really intriguing and it makes a change from the YA books I've been reading lately.

Noughts & Crosses by Malorie Blackman
Synopsis - Sephy is a Cross – a member of the dark-skinned ruling class. Callum is a nought – a ‘colourless’ member of the underclass who were once slaves to the Crosses. The two have been friends since early childhood. But that’s as far as it can go. Until the first steps are taken towards more social equality and a limited number of Noughts are allowed into Cross schools… Against a background of prejudice and distrust, intensely highlighted by violent terrorist activity by Noughts, a romance builds between Sephy and Callum – a romance that is to lead both of them into terrible danger…
I've heard amazing things about this book from Megan Olivier on Youtube so when I saw it amongst the choices I snapped it up!
It sounds like a really interesting premise that turns the tables of racial prejudice, but also maintains a great story in there too, I'm really looking forward to reading this one!

And that's my haul (for now!), expect more to come veeeery soon!!
