Hello. I hope everyone had a great weekend. Did you watch the Superbowl? (if not, it was super boring!) I have a twofer for you today, since I didn’t post last week. I am starting to workout again and get myself on a better eating schedule… We will see how long that lasts. But today I am going to show you my first book haul of the year (which was what I was going to post last week) and my February reading list. 🙂
Here is my book haul!
I grabbed these amazing books when Barnes and Nobles was having a 50% off sale! Everything there was less than $70. The Selection series, A Very Large Expanse of Sea, Damsel, Grim Lovelies, and Escaping from Houdini. I don’t know much about .. all but Escaping from Houdini. Lol. But they are popular and were on sale.
And this is what I plan to read this month! I completed about 5 books in January so I am hoping I can get through all of these. I am already about 100 pages into Mother Knows Best. And I can’t wait to dive back into Amy’s Oz and see what happens next.
What is on your tbr this month? Any new exciting books you are looking forward too?
This weekend I visited my librarys used book sale. 😀 I got a ton of books! So I decided to try a video instead of just listing everything here. The first video is of the Young Adult titles. and the second is Adult titles. 🙂 Links will be below each video.
***** I have never video’d myself before so bare with me. 🙂 If I do more of these I will get better. I promise. Also, I am just using my phone so I couldn’t see what was happening.
So, in Wichita we have a small chain of used book stores. I usually don’t buy from there because their trade in system is just, to be honest, complete junk. But I had a bunch of books that were given to me so I went in a while they were checking out my books I checked out theirs.
I got these two books for $4! YAY! They are both in very good condition. Which I wouldn’t have bought them if they weren’t. But Cloaked is by Alex Flinn and Sapphique is by Catherine Fisher. Sapphique is number 2 in the series and Cloaked is a fairy tale retelling. Alex Flinn also wrote Beastly a Beauty and the Beast retelling so I knew this one was going to be good.
So my book club is reading An Absolutely Remarkable Thing for our November book. So I went to B&N armed with coupons and ready to walk out with 2 books.
So… I walked out with 3. But I didn’t go overboard. Plus the Hank Green novel was 30% off and I have a membership so an extra 10% there. It is orginally $25.99 and I got it for around $13. Plus my other coupon was for 20% off one Young Adult book. So I picked up Assassin’s Blade and while making my way to the front of the store I saw Dear Martin was only $8. So I basically got two books plus 1 free! And I am A-Ok with that. 🙂
Hello! I keep telling myself no more books since I did that huge haul on ebay/thriftbooks. But I got a coupon today in my email for and extra 15% off at Barnes and Nobles and on top of my membership I thought I had to use it. So I did. 😀
I got a few books all for less than $30! YAY sales! So the first one Mary Rose was on the clearence table(Always check the clearance table!) 75% off. So it was less than $3. It is a ghost story and that is basically all I know. I thought its October so Ghost stories! Next, right when I walked into the store Someday by David Levithan was right there so I had to get it! I loved Everyday so much. I did not even know a sequel was coming out but I am so happy it did. Last on the haul today is Hunting Prince Dracula! I loved Stalking Jack the Ripper so I had to get the sequel and once again October is the perfect month for it! So these are also going to be the next three on my tbr! I could not be more excited for my October reading!
So I was pretty upset when I got these last books in. A couple of them were pretty damaged but that’s what you get buying used online when you can’t see them.
So I am still waiting on my last book wich is Dorothy Must Die Stories Vol 1. But I got the rest of the Dorothy series and #1 in The Others series. Written in Red was the biggest disappointment. I got a hardback because it was all the site had. And there was no dust cover with it and the front had some weird stains. So I was going to return it but they just told me to donate it and gave me a refund. I think I will donate it and just go find a paper back copy somewhere. I hate not having dust covers. But the others are in pretty good condition. I had a pretty nice experience. I never buy books online besides on Amazon, but Ebay wasn’t a bad buy. And I got The Others series on Thrift Books. But It ended up all being from the same seller, ironically. Because everything came in one box. So overall experience… 3/5. price was okay but I would rather have new books than used ones. But maybe I am just high maintenance.
I went onto eBay for like… 1 thing. Not book related and came out with like…. 6 series ordered! So here is Part 1.
I picked up Marked in Flesh by Anne Bishop at Walmart the other day. It was in their bargain bin. I had had that on my list for years. I did not know it wasn’t #1 in the series so I had to get the others (HAHA) in the series. (if you don’t know why I laughed it was because the series is called The Others.) So I have 3 of those and am still waiting on … 1? I don’t even know. I also picked up The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland series. I had number 1 for about a year so I picked up the next few. Here are 1-3. Still waiting on a couple. I did the exact same thing with the Wicked Lovely series (I had #1). And since I was just on such a book buying roll why not get a couple series I just have wanted to have and never picked up. So, in comes Beautiful Creatures and Dorothy Must Die series. And no, I have not seen the Beautiful Creatures movie. I am pretty sure that is all I got in this box. I am still waiting on another couple. So until I get my next box check these out!
