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?
Alexis: About a month ago, I requested three books from the library, and of course they all came around the same time!
- Nocturna by Maya Motayne
- The Editor by Steven Rowley
- The Scent Keeper by Erica Bauermeister
I already started Nocturna, and I can’t wait to read the other two!
On a different note, what’s your favorite Starbucks drink? I usually go for a matcha latte with almond milk, but the espresso machine was down, so I settled for a green tea frappuccino.
Check out the books below!
Alexis: We love book mail! We’re so thankful to have won We Hunt the Flame by Hafsah Faaizal and China Dream by Ma Jian through Bookstagram giveaways.
I’m roadtripping to my grad school city tomorrow to finalize my apartment. I can’t wait to have my own space and get a ton of writing done!
I’m looking forward to cracking one of these books open on the drive.
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!
Alexis: Happy Friday, everyone!
Yesterday, I got an email that two of my requested library book were ready to be picked up: Five Feet Apart by Rachael Lippincott, Mikki Daughtry, and Tobias Iaconis, and Gingerbread by Helen Oyeyemi.
These are two of my most highly-anticipated reads, and I waited over a month for them.
I sat down and binged all of Five Feet Apart yesterday, so look out for a review tomorrow.
I can’t wait to dig into Gingerbread, because I have a feeling I’m going to love it!
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.
Library haul time! These are some of my most anticipated reads on my #tbr list.
- Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
- Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo
- The Lie Tree by Frances Hardinge
- In the Midst of Winter by Isabel Allende
Anna and I went to a coffee shop and got some work and writing done today. And then we went to Ulta, my second favorite store after Barnes and Noble.
I’m starting with In the Midst of Winter since it’s currently 28 degrees outside and dropping! I’ve always loved Isabel Allende’s writing style and I’m enjoying the beginning of the book.
