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 🙂
