Hello my awesome friends!
It is time for my April / birthday haul. April has been extremely good to me. I went to Qatar on my birthday and had lots of fun there (and bought books of course). This haul consists of books, candles, Fairyloot subscription box, stickers, and bookmarks. I will tag all shops/pages where I purchased my stuff from (sharing is caring y’all).
I will post all the stuff I got for my birthday below:
First of all, we will start with the books I got. I got 17 books this month. One of these books was a gift for my birthday, and I received one in my Fairyloot.
The books I bought / received for my birthday:
These books are from book depository. I have saved up to get all of the below books which I will be listing below:
- Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
- Crown of Midnight by Sarah. J. Maas
- The Hating Game by Sally Thorne
- Monstress by Marjorie Liu and Sana Takeda
- Angelfall by Susan Ee
- World After by Susan Ee
- End of Days by Susan Ee
- Heartless by Marissa Meyer
- The square root of summer by Harriet Reuter Hapgood
- Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers
- Killing Kate by Alex Lake
The last book was a present for my birthday. It’s called Success from setbacks by Gael Lindenfield.
I received this beauty in my March Fairyloot box. I loved the fact that it is SIGNED by Laini Taylor. I am currently a few pages in and loving her writing.
Books I bought in Qatar:
I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to go into WH Smiths in Qatar International Airport. Which is why I got the exit two books.
- The Ballroom by Anna Hope
- I’m Travelling Alone by Samuel Bjork
I got these on the last day of April because I couldn’t find what I was looking for in the mall and wanted to cheer myself up. (Hahaha this just reminded me of Jesse the reader’s 50 book buying excuses video ^_^ * p.s. If you haven’t seen it yet, you should). So I chose both The Assassin’s Blade and Heir of Fire by S. J. Maas because I just frinished the first book in the series and wanted to continue it.
The second part I saved up for was the Candles I got from Happy Piranha. I got the mix three candles deal (which is cheaper!) and decided I wanted these candles:
- Amortentia Love Potion candle: it smells like rose musk and raspberry but the raspberry smell is the stronger scent .. yummy!
- Lunar lights candle: This smells like a mixture of strawberries and chocolate. I love the deep red color of this candle which is perfect for bookstagram.
- The Skylope candle: This is a Zelda inspired candle that smells of freshly cut grass and jasmine. This is my favorite out of all three. It smells divinely fresh. ❤
I got these beautiful bookmarks from ribonita chocolat Etsy shop. She has beautiful and unique designs which I wanted to get since I found her on bookstagram. The designs I got are (from left to right):
1. Birthday bookmarks
- Happy birthday Marwa (roses)
- Marwa is the most beautiful girl in the world (love love love this!! Great reminder when I feel bad)
- Marwa is the best (H*** Yeah!)
- Happy birthday Marwa (cakes)
2. Quotes about cousins:
- Cousins are the perfect best friends
- This bookmark belongs to my favorite cousin
- Cousins? Nah we’re best friends
3. Bookish quotes:
- “Books are a uniquely portable magic” ~ Stephen King
- “The world belongs to those who read” ~ Rick Holland
- “A book is a dream you hold in your hand” ~ Neil Gaiman
- “A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies” ~ George R.R. Martin
These are the BEST stickers!! No joke! I got a few for me and my colleagues from Paperkumaco. The ones I got for myself are below:
