19 books for $25? My best book haul yet!

Hello bloggers,

How are you guys today?

I am doing great thinking about this book haul from a few weeks ago.

My school is liquidating the book portion of their store so they dropped all of their prices down to about a $1 for every book.

I had to jump on that opportunity (OBVIOUSLY) so here is what I bought:

(I am linking the box set because listing them all seems unnecessary.)

Most of these books I have no clue what the books are about. I got them because I read the synopsis while in the store and they seemed pretty interesting.

I am glad I got the Mortal Instruments series. IT has been one of those series I have never read. I feel like I am missing out. It was only 6 bucks for these 5. I still need to get the first book, but I still got a steal from this deal.

Anyways, I have absolutely no more shelf space so hopefully, I can read through a few more books this month so they do not sit on my floor like they currently are.

As always, thanks for reading,

A Bookie

Money was burning a hole in my wallet, so I bought books!

Hey y’all

I love posting book haul posts. Those are literally my favorite posts to read.

And that is totally why I spent another $100 on books.

Now, if my mom sees this, I am sorry but I promise you these were for a good cause.

That good cause is my bookshelf looking full.

Now, like I said last book haul, which sadly, was only a week ago, I bought Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom (which I got both in the mail two days ago. They are so pretty look!).

Pic of my copies of Six of crows and Crooked Kingdom

I also got really nice copies of the last 2 Caraval books but that is besides the point.

For this book haul I got 5 books, all hardcover, and one of those was a preorder.

So here they are:

Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

Shadow and Bone Cover

Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo

Ruin and Rising Cover

(You might notice that Siege and Storm is missing, but guess what I did not want to spend the astronomical amounts of money on that book because for some reason that book is the most expensive of the series)

From Blood and Ash by Jennifer L. Armentrout

A Kingdom of Flesh and Fire by Jennifer L. Armentrout

A Kingdom of Flesh and Fire Cover

(I hope you guys are noticing a theme)

Preorder: The Crown of Gilded Bones by Jennifer L. Armentrout

A Crown of Gilded Bones Cover

AHHH my friend Sydney and Booktok made them sound so good! And because this last one literally comes out tomorrow, I thought I would buy all three. I might try to binge read all of them and give a three book review.

I bought all of them in hardcover, because I have been working hard these past few weeks on school and my now three jobs I have. I wanted a little something extra for myself.

Also, I might start my Bookstagram back up, I am not sure. So if I do I want some hardcovers to get my pictures popping.

Have I read any of these? No. Have a I read any Leigh Bardugo? No. Have I only read a total of three Jennifer L. Armentrout books and they weren’t of this genre? Yes. But do I care? NO.

I have bought books I disliked and have bought many books I like. Like I said in the last post, every book is an investment towards my huge library I hope to have one day.

Also, sorry mom for spending my money on books, but hey this did not go over my Entertainment budget. It was exactly the rest of my entertainment budget and some change.

Anyways, I hope you all enjoy. Let me know if you have bought anything recently!

As always, thanks for reading,

Monday Book Haul

Hey guys!

I recently got a Visa gift card from my grandpa. I had no clue what to buy with it but my mom kept saying I should buy groceries and gas.

Well mother is going to be disappointed because guess what I spent it on…

BOOKS

Tehe

I just ordered them five minutes before I posted this.

I consider each book I buy an investment because one day I would like a huge library so, every book I buy goes toward that goal.

I purchased them from the Strand in New York because they are my favorite bookstore in the world. I was going to buy them from a local bookstore in the town where I live, but I did not want to talk to the guy who owned the store. People have told me he is weird and talks too much. I am too anxious to talk to anyone.

So here are the books I bought:

Legendary by Stephanie Garber

Finale by Stephanie Garber

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

I am so excited for these to come!

I got them all in hardcover so they were all a hefty sum, but I wanted them. I already have Caraval in hardcover. And I plan on getting all of the Grishaverse books in hardcover.

Let me know what books you guys got recently.

As always, thanks for reading,

Late Christmas Book Haul: Part 2

Hey guys

I am back with the second part of my Christmas book haul. If you did not read the last one, it was full of gifts my grandparents and mom bought for me. Go check it out!

These are the books I bought myself with the money people gave me to buy books.

Except this one:

The Short Second Life of Bree Taylor by Stephanie Meyer

“BREE TANNER CAN BARELY REMEMBER LIFE before she had uncannily powerful senses, superhuman reflexes, and unstoppable physical strength. Life before she had a relentless thirst for blood… life before she became a vampire.” -Goodreads

This was a late present from my grandparents. Now for the stuff I bought:

A Darker Shade of Magic by V. E. Schwab

“Kell is one of the last Antari—magicians with a rare, coveted ability to travel between parallel Londons; Red, Grey, White, and, once upon a time, Black…”-Goodreads

And I Darken by Kiersten White

“No one expects a princess to be brutal. And Lada Dragwlya likes it that way. Ever since she and her gentle younger brother, Radu, were wrenched from their homeland of Wallachia and abandoned by their father to be raised in the Ottoman courts, Lada has known that being ruthless is the key to survival. She and Radu are doomed to act as pawns in a vicious game, an unseen sword hovering over their every move. For the lineage that makes them special also makes them targets…”-Goodreads

Now I Rise by Kiersten White

“Lada Dracul has no allies. No throne. All she has is what she’s always had: herself. After failing to secure the Wallachian throne, Lada is out to punish anyone who dares to cross her blood-strewn path. Filled with a white-hot rage, she storms the countryside with her men, accompanied by her childhood friend Bogdan, terrorizing the land. But brute force isn’t getting Lada what she wants. And thinking of Mehmed brings little comfort to her thorny heart. There’s no time to wonder whether he still thinks about her, even loves her. She left him before he could leave her…” -Goodreads

Troubled Blood by Robert Galbraith

“Private Detective Cormoran Strike is visiting his family in Cornwall when he is approached by a woman asking for help finding her mother, Margot Bamborough — who went missing in mysterious circumstances in 1974.”-Goodreads

Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan

“I’ve left some clues for you.
If you want them, turn the page.
If you don’t, put the book back on the shelf, please.”

So begins the latest whirlwind romance from the bestselling authors of Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist. Lily has left a red notebook full of challenges on a favorite bookstore shelf, waiting for just the right guy to come along and accept its dares. But is Dash that right guy? Or are Dash and Lily only destined to trade dares, dreams, and desires in the notebook they pass back and forth at locations across New York? Could their in-person selves possibly connect as well as their notebook versions? Or will they be a comic mismatch of disastrous proportions?” -Goodreads

The Problem with Forever by Jennifer L. Armentrout

“Growing up, Mallory Dodge learned that the best way to survive was to say nothing. And even though it’s been four years since her nightmare ended, she’s beginning to worry that the fear that holds her back will last a lifetime. Now, after years of homeschooling, Mallory must face a new milestone…” -Goodreads

Those are all the books I got this Christmas! I am so excited for them all. My TBR shelf now has no room so I really need to finish all these books so I can add more. My mom will be so mad I want to buy more but it is okay.

As always, thanks for reading!

Soon she is stealing books from Nazi book-burnings, the mayor’s wife’s library, wherever there are books to be found….-Goodreads

  • The Ickabog by J.K Rowling

Once upon a time there was a tiny kingdom called Cornucopia, as rich in happiness as it was in gold, and famous for its food. From the delicate cream cheeses of Kurdsburg to the Hopes-of-Heaven pastries of Chouxville, each was so delicious that people wept with joy as they ate them….-Goodreads

  • Midnight Sun by Stephanie Meyer

When Edward Cullen and Bella Swan met in Twilight, an iconic love story was born. But until now, fans have heard only Bella’s side of the story. At last, readers can experience Edward’s version in the long-awaited companion novel, Midnight Sun….-Goodreads

I got some others but I left them back at my parents house when I came back home for college so I cant remember everything I got. I got some more special edition Harry Potter books but I do not want to list the wrong editions of them.

I want to thank my parents, my grandparents, and my secret santa for getting me all of these wonderful books. I am so excited to read them.

Look out for my part 2 when I order my other books.

As always, thank you for reading,

January 2017 Wrap-Up

Hey guys guess what!

Its time for another monthly wrap-up.

I am so happy with this month except for how fast it flew by. I got all my finals done whihc delayed my reading so i didn’t read everything I wanted to read but I did however meet other goals. One of my goals was to make the photo you’ll see throughout this post and on my featured image. I have been meaning to make this to give a little flare to my blog.

books-i-read

Rhis month was a busy month for me and so will February but I have a better outlook going into the next monththan I did going into this month. I only set a goal to read three books this month, those books being Heir of Fire, Queen of Shadows, and Passenger. while I only read two of those books on that list I did read 5 books this month. I am very happy and impressed with myself. The books I read were:

28686840

92517

20613470

18584855

23513349

Most of these books were amazing. I loved almost all of them. go check out my reviews which are linked above to see my opinions on each book.

posts-this-month

This month I posted a little but that is usually how I roll so here are my posts from this month:

Go check out those blog posts and give them some love. I work really hard on them.

books-i-bought

Now I put this one last because I bought ALOT of books this month. I had lots of Christmas money so I decided I would buy books with all of that money. so here is the long list of book  bought:

As you can see that is alot of books to buy in one month. I was so excited and still am to have gotten all those books. The wait for all of them was excruciating though. I think I may have an addiction to buying books. But they make my book shelf look even more pretty.

That is all for this months wrap-up. I hope you have enjoyed this as much as I have. I will have my TBR up by tomorrow (hopefully) so you can see what books I plan to read in February. Thanks for reading. Please like and comment below!!!!

What books did you read? Did you read any boooks that I read? What books did you buy?

 

Book Buy of December

I really think I like to keep my bank account as low as possible…

I have done it again. I bought a book this month which I swore I wouldn’t do because it’s Christmas and people can buy my books for me. I feel ashamed.

Anyways so the book I bought was Passenger by Alexandra Bracken. People have been gushing about this book. I bought it from Half Price Books Online. I wanted to get this book because I want to get caught up so I can get Wayfarer its sequel when it comes out in January. This is the cover of the book:

20983362

HOW GREAT DOES THAT LOOK! Ugh, I am very influenced by appealing book covers.

Also, read this synopsis:

“In one devastating night, violin prodigy Etta Spencer loses everything she knows and loves. Thrust into an unfamiliar world by a stranger with a dangerous agenda, Etta is certain of only one thing: she has traveled not just miles but years from home. And she’s inherited a legacy she knows nothing about from a family whose existence she’s never heard of. Until now.

Nicholas Carter is content with his life at sea, free from the Ironwoods—a powerful family in the colonies—and the servitude he’s known at their hands. But with the arrival of an unusual passenger on his ship comes the insistent pull of the past that he can’t escape and the family that won’t let him go so easily. Now the Ironwoods are searching for a stolen object of untold value, one they believe only Etta, Nicholas’ passenger, can find. In order to protect her, he must ensure she brings it back to them—whether she wants to or not.

Together, Etta and Nicholas embark on a perilous journey across centuries and continents, piecing together clues left behind by the traveler who will do anything to keep the object out of the Ironwoods’ grasp. But as they get closer to the truth of their search, and the deadly game the Ironwoods are playing, treacherous forces threaten to separate Etta not only from Nicholas but from her path home… forever.” -Goodreads

That just sounds epic right? I am excited to read this book.
