Book Haul

Image
Hey guys,
I'm sorry that I have not been posting a lot like a used to, but I do have a book haul for you today.

So yesterday I was out with my mother and I had gotten 30 dollars from working for my neighbors and I had all intentions of saving it, but then, we went to this local bookshop. The books consisted of both new and used books and I just couldn't control myself.

I bought 5 (technically 4) books.

So these are the books that I bought yesterday.

1. Matched by Ally Condie

So I was HUGE on this book in either fifth or sixth grade but that was the time in my life that I didn't feel like had to buy all of the books that I read. So I did not have a physical copy, but I found it at this bookshop for $5 and I knew that I just had to have it.

2. Winger by Andrew Smith


I have been meaning to read this book for a really long time and when I saw it for $8 at this bookshop, there was no way that I couldn't not buy it.

Overdue Book Haul

Image
So a little while ago, I went to the bookstore (Barnes & Noble of course) and I picked up a couple of books that I have just forgotten to do a small book haul for it.

So, now these are the three books that I picked up at Barnes and Noble.


The Shadow Queen by C.J. Redwine



Guys I saw this just sitting on the shelf and I loved the beautiful cover and the naked book and there is an awesome map on the liner pages and the spine is to die for, so I bought it.

Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes



I have been looking for this book for quite some time and it has always been out of stock and I have just heard spectacular things about this entire series to I purchased this one as well.


Young Elites by Marie Lu


So I have avoided buying this book for so long because it's so close to the plot of The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken which I absolutely loved so I didn't want to ruin this idea so I put off getting and I look at it and read the back and pick it up then put it down whenever I…

Reading Update

So I am taking a while to read Passenger by Alexandra Bracken, but I hope to finish it over the course of this weekend. But I would like to say that, yes, I am in a reading slump, and they suck. I had read Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins so fast that it through me into a reading slump, now, whatever I read, it will take me a long time to finish them until I find the right book.

That was just a quick reading update for you guys in case you guys were wondering qhy I hadn't put out a book review for it.


Thanks,
Delaney M.
