Help stop poverty, buy a book: Oxfam | Weekend Book Haul

Book shopping is the best kind of therapy for me so I had a blast yesterday morning browsing through shelves and shelves of books, especially when buying books helps other people too!

I bought these books from Oxfam, a charity organisation that helps fight poverty across the globe and it feels so good to know that my love for books can make a difference in someone’s life somewhere across the world!!! Isn’t that incredible?! If you want to know a little more about what Oxfam does, then click here and you can do online shopping too ;).

The Godfather by Mario Puzo

I must confess that I have not seen the movie so far, which is why I actually picked up the book as I tend not to read the book if I’ve seen the movie. I have a generally idea on what the book/movie is a portrayal of the 1940’s criminal underworld with Don Corleone at the centre of it all. I am so excited to have this book and explore a world that I don’t know that much about! 

This is currently on sale at Book Depository at £4.52, you can buy it here.

The Secret Circle by L.J.Smith

I heard about this fantasy YA novel a long time ago, but didn’t got around to reading it, however I am glad I picked it up now. The story follows Cassie as she moves to New England and bonds with a group of teenagers from her school and becomes part of their Secret Circle.
