For a class this quarter, I had to create a blog. For this blog, I wrote out my Black Friday post, where I showed off the books I bought on Black Friday.
I wanted to report my original post here, and here is the link to the original post. I will probably not post on that blog anymore, but I did like this post.
Here it is:
“The day after Thanksgiving is a time to relax after the huge meal, spend some quality time with family, and, the most important part, shopping!
My boyfriend and I went to the Olympia Mall on Black Friday to shop the deals. I went to stores like Bath and Body Works, Earthbound Co., and Old Navy. However, my favorite place I shopped was not at the mall, Barnes & Noble.
I spent more on books there than on my other purchases combined. I bought a few for their sale and then a few signed books.
1. Realm Breaker by Victoria Aveyard
This was the main reason I went to the store. Aveyard is one of my favorite authors. She has been posting about picking up copies of her book this week and I knew I had to get one. I thought that the store would run out since I was going later on in the day, but they had three left in stock!
2. We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
Do I already own this book? Yes.
Did I still buy the signed copy of it? Yes!
I read this book for the first time when I was thirteen and it was honestly a game-changer. The twist at the end was so unexpected. I am so happy I got a signed version.
3. Anyway the Wind Blows by Rainbow Rowell
I love Rainbow Rowell. Her books have always had a special place in my heart. I was so excited I could nab another one, with her signature! I now own a signed book by Rainbow Rowell. How cool!
4. Once Upon a Broken Heart by Stephanie Garber
This book I, unfortunately, did not find a signed copy. I did get a killer deal on it being half-off though. I was so happy. I am excited to read this one, but I do not have high hopes since I did not think Garber’s other series, ‘Caraval,’ was super riveting. I have heard more positive things about this book though.
5. The Atlas Six by Olivie Blake
I have heard amazing things about this book. My mom tried to buy it for me for Christmas but she could not find it. I thought my Christmas list was going to go unfulfilled, but I spotted the copy from across the room. I ran to it and this book ended my shopping in-store.
Online, I bought a few more books that I have not gotten yet:
- Blackout by Dhonielle Clayton
- Here’s to Us by Becky Abertalli and Adam Silvera (Signed) (Preorder)
- Galant by V.E Schwab (Signed) (Preorder)
I spent a lot of money, but I am so happy with all of my purchases.”
As always, thanks for reading,
