Christmas Book Haul 2020

I love gifting books for Christmas and birthdays, and I equally love receiving books from people too. This year, I was really lucky to receive four books for Christmas, all of which I'm really excited for. They're all great additions to my bookshelves.
This was the first book that I added to my Christmas list, as soon as I saw its release date was Winter 2020. I read and adored Michelle Obama's memoir Becoming last summer and thoroughly adored finding out more about her life. I've equally been a fan of Barack, so when I saw that this was being released, I knew I had to read it. I just wasn't expecting it to be quite so huge - I guess he has a lot to tell. 700 pages for me will be quite the commitment, so I might have to hold off for the summer holidays, but I cannot wait to hear about the presidency from Obama himself. I think it will be a really interesting read where I will learn a lot. I cannot wait!

I have adored following Sophie, a.k.a. Mrs Hinch, for as long as I can remember. As well as the cleaning tips that she is so well-known for (which were really helpful when I first moved out), she is just hilarious and her Instagram stories with Ronnie and Henry just make my day. I've got her first book "Hinch Yourself Happy", which I haven't read yet, but when I saw that she was releasing an autobiography, I wanted to read that too. I know that there are things about Sophie's story that she hasn't shared on Instagram, so I can't wait to learn more about her and her story. I feel like it'll be like chatting with a mate, and I can't wait.

This was a surprise gift from my grandparents, which I had never heard of before, but I know it will be right up my street. Although I don't read a huge amount of non-fiction (yet - I am working on it in 2021), but I really love books about books. Who would've thought? You can probably guess that books and authors play a huge part in my life, and I think this will be a great way to learn more about something I am passionate about. From what I've seen, the author is a UK bookseller, and has used this book to tell stories from his job as well as share his love of books. I think this will be a really lovely read, something to cosy up with on a weekend afternoon.

This is the sequel to The Vanished Bride, a mystery I received for Christmas last year. I loved it - it follows the Brontë sisters, known for their classic novels, as they solve local mysteries that grab their attention. I loved this blend of true life and fiction, and I feel like it gives you the opportunity to feel like you know more about the famous trio. This one follows Charlotte, Anne and Emily as they investigate the latest shocking discovery - a set of human remains found in the walls of a local house. If this is anything like the first novel, it will be full of twists and turns, and witty sibling humour. I can't wait to return to Haworth Parsonage and the Brontë sisters.

Did you receive any books for Christmas? Have you read any of the books in my haul? Let me know!
