Anna: Happy Saturday, bookish friends! Here’s my library/library sale haul from this morning. My currently reading pile is about to get a whole lot bigger!
Disappearing Earth and Mostly Dead Things are long-awaited, very-anticipated holds. I have high expectations!
I’m stocking up for My Harry Potter re-read. I grew up reading my family’s copy of Order of the Pheonix which is completely falling apart and now bound together by tape. I snagged this copy for 50 cents!
One of my current reads is The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls, so when I saw another book by her I couldn’t resist. I’m captivated by her writing and excited to try some of her fiction!
Have you read any of these? Check them out!
Alexis: Book haul!
Barnes and Noble is having a buy one get one paperback half off.
I’ve been meaning to read Florida for a while now, but my professor recommend it so I finally picked it up!
I’m looking forward to reading Vicious, as it’ll be my first VE Schwab read.
Have you read either of these?
While I was in Kansas City this week, I visited a used bookstore and got these two books: The Blood Flower by Anita Amirrezvani and The Star-Touched Queen by Roshanki Chokshi.
I can’t wait to read them!
What are your weekend plans? I went to my cousin’s bridal shower today and I’m going to a Lebanese food festival tomorrow. I hope you all have a great rest of your weekend!
Time for a book haul! I ran to Target last night (in the pouring rain) because I needed cookie dough ice cream.
I told myself I was only going to read library books for a while, but both King of Scars and Pachinko were 20% off. Whoops!
These are two of my highly antipcated reads and I can’t wait to crack them open, after I’ve finished my library books, of course.
Alexis: The little snow that we got turned into mush and then rain, so I was able to get my library books! Here’s a library haul part 2.
- Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo
- The Afterlife by Thomas Pierce
- Caraval by Stephanie Garber
- The River of Doubt by Candice Millard
For a change of pace, I’m intersecting my fantasy reads with some different genres! Even though I love fantasy and YA fantasy, I’m tired of the same tropes being recycled (I’m looking at you, love triangle). Sometimes I need to take a break and read something different.
