I’m going to start doing book hauls on this blog as I just love sharing my excitement when I get new books! 😀  For those that are unfamiliar, a book haul post is one where I share pictures of the latest books I’ve either bought, kindly received from others or on the very rare occasion, books I’ve managed to win from competitions.  These pictures show you books I plan to later  share reviews of, once I’ve had a chance of reading them, and I’m giving a very brief description with each picture of each book.  So let’s get started…

I’m lucky enough to receive some lovely books from publisher Walker Books every month.  Here are the latest books hitting the shelves before Christmas, let me know if you’re looking forward to any of these 🙂
