March Book Haul

20160330_174322

Is March really almost over?  Not that I’m complaining because that means SPRING!  I’m very excited for the weather to be warmer every day.  So this month’s haul was a lot more than I had planned but what can you do.

On my trip to California at the beginning of the month I got a few books at some local book stores.

At Feldman’s Books I found two older mass markets to add to my Outlander collection.

At Kepler’s Books, I was given an ARC of The Darkest Corners by Kara Thomas.  I also scored a scratch-and-dent copy of Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys for less than $7.

My first preorder of the month came in special from Parnassus Books in Nashville, TN.  I really wanted a personalized signed copy.  It is such a good book you guys!  I highly recommend that you check it out.

My OwlCrate came in and the theme was Writer’s Block.  I was a little sad that the book for the month was The Serpent King since I already got my preorder but everything else in the box was awesome.  I ended up selling my OwlCrate copy of TSK to Half Price Books.

I joined a new book club on Goodreads.  April is the first month and the first book we read is going to be Passenger by Alexandra Bracken.  I am really looking forward to reading this and discussing it with everyone in the book club.  If you’re interested in joining, it’s called The Revolving Shelf.

From Book Outlet, I was SUPER excited to find Someday, Someday, Maybe by Lauren Graham.  I am a HUGE Gilmore Girls fan and I have wanted to read this one for so long but it was kind of expensive.  I also got The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon, Half Bad by Sally Green and The Black Cauldron by Lloyd Alexander.  I actually read Half Bad last year and didn’t really like it but I had this feeling come over me that I need to give it another chance and it was only a few dollars for the hardcover so I figured, what the hell.

I was so excited when I found out that they were coming out with new tie-in editions of Dragonfly In Amber for season 2 of Outlander.  I bought the mass market at Target.  Then I also found out that they were making a new tie-in edition of Outlander so I ordered the trade paperback of both the new tie-ins from Amazon.  Unfortunately the new Outlander tie-in has the same ISBN as the original tie-in so they sent me the original.  I only had that one in the mass market so I just decided to keep the trade paperback as well.

So last Friday I had the day off work so I went on a bit of a shopping spree.  I found the new tie-in of Outlander that I wanted at Barnes and Noble so of course I had to buy a copy.  I love this tie-in cover so much more than the original.  I’m normally not a fan of tie-in covers but it’s Outlander…. Enough said.  And at Half Price Books I found Royal Wedding to complete my Princess Diaires collection.  I also decided to upgrade my Song of Ice and Fire books to trade paperbacks and managed to find 3 of the 5 there.

I also upgraded my copy of The Winner’s Curse from paperback to hardcover.  Then I bought The Winner’s Crime and preordered The Winner’s Kiss.  I am currently reading The Winner’s Kiss and am totally loving it.

So those are all of the books that I acquired over the past month.  Next month should be a lot lighter.  I have two April pre-orders and a couple of orders at Book Outlet that will be arriving in April.  I am really looking forward to reading all of these books.  Well at least the ones I haven’t read yet 🙂

  1. YAY your book haul! 😀 Lots of awesome books listed. So glad I was able to spot Salt to the Sea for us both! I just got my copy of The Serpent King yesterday and plan to read it in April. You and your Outlander collection, lol. 😛
