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.

I just keep getting book mail! It is so nice. I am actually kind of glad I didn’t get my full order in one huge box. Because after a stressful day its nice to get to open a package you didn’t know was going to be there and have it be the books you were waiting on. 🙂 So today I got The Outlander series! I loved this series! I listen to it on audible last year(all 8books!) and I fell in love with Jamie and Claire. I am super excited to have physical copies as well as my audible copies.
They are mass market paperbacks which makes them very fat. But I actually like those better than the huge 8in books. I also got in 2 other books today…
The first volume of Dorothy Must Die Stories and another Fairyland novel. I think I am only waiting on 1 more dorothy book, the fourth one in the series and 1 more in the fairyland series. Then only Wicked Lovely, the first one in the series (which I alreay have). So, awesome! Only a couple more packages to come home to but I will be reading and reading all winter long! Link to Outlander will be below but I already have links to the other two in my Shop page so go check those out!
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.
