Amazon Haul Of Books...

I'm always on the lookout for a great book or series of books to keep me occupied for those rainy days or long bus journeys to university, and a lot of people have been talking about a trio of books called 'The Hunger Games', now I've never heard of them until a few weeks ago and still don't really know the concept of the book, but thought 'what the hell' and ordered them anyway with high expectations as so many people have considered them to attract the same audience as the Harry Potter and Twilight books, and seeing as I thoroughly enjoyed those, I'm hoping 'The Hunger Games' will live up to my expectations.

As you probably already know Nicholas Sparks is one of my all time favorite authors and I can't go into a book store without picking up one of his books, and so to complete my haul, I added 'Safe Haven' and 'The Notebook' to my collection.

I bought 5 books from Amazon in all, 3 Hunger games books & 2 books by Nicholas Sparks;

1) The Hunger Games - Suzanne Collins

2) Catching Fire - Suzanne Collins

3) Mockingjay - Suzanne Collins

4) Safe Haven - Nicholas Sparks 

5) The Notebook - Nicholas Sparks

I completed my order to Amazon on the Monday and the books arrived on the Wednesday, so shipping is really quick and smooth with no problems. I've ordered from Amazon many times before and have never had a problem with them, so I would defiantly recommend them if you don't want to pay retail price (and lets face it, who does?).

Thanks for reading
