Book Haul!

Bloomsbury in Australia had a sale at the end of June - 48% off all their books (except Harry Potter of course).  And then last Saturday a local Anglican church's mens group had a book sale.  Add in the fortuitous timing of a few pre-orders I received at the same time, and I ended up falling off the shrink-the-tbr wagon.  Hard.

 

New books:

 

A little variety here because of the Bloomsbury sale (there are more on the way, btw).  Some science, a theology and a language book, but mostly mysteries, including The Thirty-Nine Steps, which I've been meaning to get for ages now and they had it for $5. 

 

Old books (church book sale books):

 

Yes, I bought two dictionaries because MT and I have been on a Scrabble-playing jag and a digital dictionary just isn't as convenient as a printed one (or two).  The book just atop The Franchise Affair ($5 Folio!) is Frenchman's Creek by du Maurier.  Most of these I bought on a whim based on author name or, in the case of the Christies, because they were the most retro covers (there was a huge stack of vintage Christie paperbacks, but I was good and only picked a few).  The Horrible Histories I bought because my history knowledge is woeful - especially ancient and British - so even the basics will be more than I had before, and my nieces can have them when I'm done.

This new book shop is bad for my bank balance! It's impossible to walk past and draws me in every time. I go shopping with my daughter to buy wool and come home with wool and books now.

My Overdue Book Haul and Giveaway

 

It has been a very, very long time since my last Book-Haul, so I figured it is time.  

I have decided to only list and show the books I have on my shelves, otherwise this list would be miles long lol 

So here are most of the books I gotten over the last couple months in the mail:

 

  • Back To Good by Laura McCarthy Benson and the  complete Bayberry Island Trilogy by Susan Donovan  I won in giveaways.

Arcs I received were 

 

  • Lost Rider and Kiss my Boots by Harper Sloan 
  • New York, Actually by Sarah Morgan
  • Belle by Anonymous Girls
  • A Fire in the Blood by Amanda Ashley
  • The Turn by Kim Harrison 

Random books I bought, that are standalones or I already own part of the series 

 

  • King's Cage by Victoria Aveyard 
  • Marked in Flesh by Anne Bishop
  • American Gods by Neil Gaiman
  • Not pictured or in different pictures are 
  • Blade Bound by Chloe Neill 
  •  The Struggle by  Jennifer L. Armentrout

 

 Next we have some books by Sarah J. Maas 

 

  • A Court of Wings and Ruin
  • Throne of Glass
  • Crown of Midnight
  • Heir of Fire
  • Queen of Shadows
  • Plus as mentioned above The Struggle.

 

I found the Left Behind series by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins in a second store for 3 bucks all together for books 1-7. I didn't know what they about but figured for 3 bucks I can't go wrong.

 

 

Next we have Cassandra Clare's books. I will get Lord of Shadows next time I get to the store....or I'm hoping anyway.

 

  • Lady Midnight 
  • Complete The Infernal Devices series 1-3
  • Complete The Mortal Instruments series 1-6

 

The last are Rick Riordan Books I meant to read the for a while now so I figured I might as well get them, plus my kids can also read them. My son actually read three of the Percy Jackson books.

 

  1. The complete The Heroes of Olympus series 1-5
  2. The Complete The Kane Chronicles series 1-3
  3. The complete Percy Jackson and the Olympians series 1-5

 

That is about, I think for hard copies. I have tons and tons of e-copies yet but way to many to list. 

The spring giveaway is also still going on and we will have a new summer one starting mid or end of June ;) 

But for now I will add the spring giveaway again in case tou have not entered or want to enter again (some are daily entrees).

Library sale!

Hit up my local library systems quarterly sale today and had a much better than usual haul (including 5 books for MT, not shown here).

 

 

See that book second from the bottom?  The Lost Book of Salem by Katherine Howe?  Yeah, turns out I already own that one but under its original title The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane.  I freaking HATE when publishers do that.  grrr...

 

I'm looking forward to the rest though; all but the Pratchett are titles new to me.

Enablers...

My sister-in-law sent me a text yesterday asking me if I'd please do her a favour and stop at my local bookstore to buy a book for our MIL for Mother's day.

 

...

 

I don't have to tell y'all what happened, right?

 

 

Here's the funny part - that bottom book?  Girl In Between?  Yeah, I never laid eyes on the book before I got home and pulled it out of the bag.  It's bad enough I have the self-control of an addict in a bookshop - now they have to add extras?

 

I was ranting and raving to MT about extra books as I flipped it over and compulsively started reading the back cover... and my ranting petered out and "Oh, hey, this looks like it could be good!"

 

MT almost laughed until he cried, and my indignation promptly lost all credibility.
