Books I’ve Bought Recently #1

Hi everyone!

How was your Christmas? Mine was fabulous. Are you looking forward to New Years and do you have resolutions? I don’t have any yet, but I have a couple of days to try and think of something.
Because it has been so long since I’ve updated you guys on my book collection it would this is probably going to be a decade-long post so I’m sorry if you get bored and quit out half-way through. I can’t remember when I actually bought half of these so I think I’ll just put them in Alphabetically. And because this will be so long I will put a Cheat Sheet Key at the top so you can just search through for the number of the book you are interested in and skip the ones you aren’t.
I have gotten all the images and blurbs from Goodreads.
P.s – I think I have remembered them all but I’m not sure XD.

19. Geek Girl Series by Holly Smale

Harriet Manners knows a lot of things. She knows that a cat has 32 muscles in each ear, a “jiffy” lasts 1/100th of a second, and the average person laughs 15 times per day. What she isn’t quite so sure about is why nobody at school seems to like her very much. So when she’s spotted by a top model agent, Harriet grabs the chance to reinvent herself. Even if it means stealing her Best Friend’s dream, incurring the wrath of her arch enemy Alexa, and repeatedly humiliating herself in front of the impossibly handsome supermodel Nick. Even if it means lying to the people she loves. 
As Harriet veers from one couture disaster to the next with the help of her overly enthusiastic father and her uber-geeky stalker, Toby, she begins to realise that the world of fashion doesn’t seem to like her any more than the real world did.

20. The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jenifer E. Smith

Who would have guessed that four minutes could change everything?
Imagine if she hadn’t forgotten the book. Or if there hadn’t been traffic on the expressway. Or if she hadn’t fumbled the coins for the toll. What if she’d run just that little bit faster and caught the flight she was supposed to be on. Would it have been something else – the weather over the Atlantic or a fault with the plane?
Hadley isn’t sure if she believes in destiny or fate but, on what is potentially the worst day of each of their lives, it’s the quirks of timing and chance events that mean Hadley meets Oliver…
Set over a 24-hour-period, Hadley and Oliver’s story will make you believe that true love finds you when you’re least expecting it.

After having done that I am one hundred per cent sure I have hauled some of these before but oh well. 20 is a round number so I’m sticking to it.
I hope you made it through. I will have a Christmas book haul up some time in the new year probably, so stick around for that. Have a good day.
