Pre-Orders

Hello, all you wonderful people. I hope everyone is staying warm in this crazy winter weather we are having here in the mid-west.

So I totally forgot today was Monday because I had the day off of work for President’s day. So I’ve been super lazy all day. And I didn’t know what I was going to write about until just 2 seconds ago. 😀

I want to talk about books that I have pre-ordered already! Everything exciting coming out!

So far this year I have preordered:

Children of Virtue and Vengeance by Tomi Adeyemi– the sequel to Children of Blood and Bone (Out June 4, 2019).

Shades of Magic Vol 1: The Steel Prince by V E Schwab– this is the graphic novel of her Darker Shades of Magic series (Out March 5, 2019).

Rick and Morty Vol 9 by Kyle Starks– This is the comic version of the TV Show (Out June 25, 2019).

Defy Me by Tehereh Mafi– #5 in the Shatter Me series (Out April 2, 2019).

Broken Throne by Victoria Aveyard– A set of novellas from the Red Queen series, also includes the 2 previously published novellas Cruel Crown (Out May 7, 2019).

The Shadowglass by Rin Chupeco– #3 in the Bone Witch series (Out March 5, 2019).

The Institute by Stephen King. A standalone novel that I’m not quite sure what genre it falls into, but it sounds amazing. (Out September 10, 2019)

And one that I should have pre-ordered but it somehow passed me by was Lady Smoke by Laura Sebastian– #2 in the Ash Princess trilogy(? I think its a trilogy). That came out Feb 5, 2019. But I just got it last Tuesday the 12th.

What books are you all excited about? I know there are lots more that are coming out that I am excited for, like the next Stalking Jack the Ripper novel but I have’t read Escaping from Houdini yet so I haven’t pre-ordered it. I also did not pre-order On the Come Up by Angie Thomas but I bought that the day after it came out. I am also super excited for the sequel to An Absolutely Remarkable Thing by Hank Green. Drop a comment below so I can get excited with you about your favorite books/series!

2 in 1

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!

January bookhaul

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.

February reading list

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?

Library Haul

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.

sorry you can’t see the covers. They are down below! 😀 And Regenacy was the word I was looking for! 

YESSSS!

TODAY IS THE DAY! 😀 I could not be more excited! The final installment of the Reader Trilogy (also known as The Sea of Ink and Gold).

I also grabbed Sadie by Courtney Summers. Sounds super good! Plus they did a short podcast on what it is about. I was super into that so I know I will love the book.

The Storyteller

The Reader

I picked this book up just because it was called the reader to be 100% honest. I was thinking it was going to be about a girl who loves to read and get lost in all of these stories. I don’t know. I was COMPLETELY wrong! Lol. (picture was found on Google.)

THE LAST BOOK IN THE SERIES COMES OUT TOMORROW! 11/13/18! I COULD NOT BE MORE EXCITED!!!! 😀 😀 😀 😀

This book takes place in Kelanna (and it has a map! 😀 ) In a world where there are no books, no one knows history except the stories that are passed down by word of mouth. Sefia has been entrusted her entire life, since her parents died, to keep a book safe. She doesn’t know what it is or where it came from; all she knows is that it can never leave her sight and she can never let it be taken from her. Sefia is traveling with Nin, an old lady her parents knew. For 6 years they have been kept out of sight, for 6 years they have been safe.

One reason I love this book is how much there is to it! I thought I had gotten a damaged copy because there were ink marks on pages but when it kept happening I knew that was just part of the book. Plus you have to keep your eye on the page count! I know, that usually is a bad thing but there are words next to some of the numbers! So awesome!

I took this book with me to Arizona for a job interview and it got damaged in my luggage! So sad. Not too badly, but a shampoo bottle exploded and I was lucky I had brought back up clothes. I do want to get a hardback of this because I have hardbacks of the next two (well, this will be up a day before the final book is out).

Bookaholic

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.

Book Club Haul

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. 🙂
