Haul // Karachi International Book Fair

On Saturday, I went to Karachi International Book Fair #KIBF. Well, I wrote it like this to make it look cool. In easier words, I attended an amazing book fair that's happening in city right now. Book fairs are awesome. There are so many books and papers and stationery and most importantly, people who actually care about reading. Isn't it getting unusual these day? Sadly, yes.

I woke up pretty late following morning. 12 PM. But that's the beauty of holidays so I'll just leave it. We were in dilemma whether to go on Sat or wait till last day. But last days at fairs are crowdy. I am glad we picked early days. Khair, I had no idea everyone was ready to go until I came into senses around 1 PM after breakfast (more like lunch but again, I'll leave it)
"Whattay lucky day. I will get me a book or two. Maybe one. I am still committed to Dan Brown's collection in shelves. Magazine should work." I thought.

The book fair was at Expo Center, it's the main exhibition center in Karachi. I adore that place. It's big, executive and so so official kinda place. Ya know. I didn't take a single photo there because when books are concerned, hey you forget everything. Book fair was like a fair, full of book stalls, people, workers handing out brochures.
I checked whole exhibition , from stall to stall. New publishers , books and errything.  I'm a bibliophile but not a severe one. So I got myself a few goodies.

H A U L   T  I M E!!! 
I got this idea from Jadirah, to do a #KBIF haul. I have never done a haul before. So I'll just pretend to be a pro and do what seems sensible. Phew.

The book fair was a literal heaven of books. I can tell you. Areeba went completely crazy and there were chances she would buy the whole place but yay, money is directly proportional to being broke.
Haha! (that's for you twin sister)

I bought a book Tape by Steven Camden, a M magazine and a cute tumbler.

// Tape by Steven Camden :
This book is so so so cute. Well I am only at 110 pages but it's been a cute story. I can't wait to read it and would review it on blog soon.
I was wandering around stalls, deciding what to buy then I saw this vibrant colored book. I read the prologue and I knew I was going to buy. It said " Two teenagers, separated by time but infinitely connected. You can call it a love story or a time travel story" or something like this. I KNEW I WOULD BUY IT. So I did. But a girl commented on my Instagram saying it's not good enough so I am half heart broken and half optimistic. Let's see.

// a M magazine
I love magazines. L O V E. Celebrity gossips, DIY + make up tips and everything I like, is always in magazines so I couldn't resist the lush view of Liberty Magazines stall and got myself this issue. There's a cute pink stick with it, for making a bun , which I can't make, apparently. And so many posters that I won't ever stick on my room's wall but keep for years. Yay!

// Tumbler 
I can never get enough goodies for my tea drinking. It's a proper habit, now. I loved this purple tumbler and my mind kept telling me " you should get it , you must get it. For tea's sake. For juice's sack. For everything's sake" so happily, it's in my hands. It's actually so cute than it appears.

Did any of you go to KIBF? What's something you're currently reading ?
New year is around the corner (hurray hurray huzzah!) and we all bloggers must write something regarding new year that's 2015. Right?
Me and Areeba from I Have Messy Bun blog have planned a link up "Holla! New year" It's going to happen on. It can be anything.
 Like new year resolutions, bucket list, a post about NY eve or...well now it's you who must get creative. So join us on 1st January for this link up, with other fabulous bloggers.
Holla! new year (a link up)

  6. I don't recall going to any book fairs myself, perhaps because I'm really busy or I'm just more of a library person, haha. I'm afraid I'll purchase books and end up disliking them. But the book fair looks like fun, and I'll definitely look out for some upcoming ones in Singapore. Thanks for sharing! :)
