Unfortunately, I didn’t attend any book sales this month. I hosted my own book sale to reduce some overflow I had. I came up with the fun idea to also host a mystery book swap, each participant would bring a book, wrap it, and label it with the genre, no title or author. Guests were also able to bring their books to sell as well!

Book Party:

Snow Goose by Paul Gallico – I haven’t read it yet but it’s a short story.

The Julius House by Charlaine Harris – My grandmother brought this to my book party, she had no idea who the author was and said “here, take it, you might like it.” Pretty much how every Christmas is… 😉

Robot Dreams by Isaac Asimov – I picked this during the book swap. I saw it was labeled Science Fiction and Short Stories, I thought it’d be a good way to wrap my noggin’ around Science Fiction. I largely don’t read it,but I dabble in it and I’m trying to enjoy it more.

The Thirteenth Earl by Evelyn Pryce – One of my guests brought books to sell/swap out and this was one we swapped for.

 

Thrift Store:

Pinocchio by Carl Collodi – Perfect addition to my Puffin Classics!

Before I fall by Lauren Oliver – I had always been curious about this, so a golden find at the thrift shop.

The Shadow Queen by Anne Bishop – I have never read anything by Anne Bishop but I hear nothing but good things about her and whenever I see a piece of her work I have to acquire it!

 

Online Orders:

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas – This book was SO fantastic, I loved it. So much better than the first by leaps and bounds. Just can’t rave enough about it.

Of Beast and Beauty by Stacey Jay – My friend recommended this read to me since I’m on a Beauty & The Beast retelling kick, or just a retelling kick in general. *noshame*

The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater – I ordered this for a book club read this month and I never got around to it. Shameful of me, I know, but I spent my free time reading/consuming A Court Of Mist and Fury. 😐 Sorry, not sorry!



So, that’s my monthly book haul! Have you read any of these? How many books did you get this month?
