Last week I had a great week in books. Eleanor & Park started off this week’s book haul, and of course I have a story that goes along with buying it! When don’t I? 😄
Anyway, here’s my book haul—the first ever in a long time. (I used to do book hauls about a year ago, when I would show y’all what I got from the library that week. Do you remember that? :D)
Author: Aimee Agresti
I’ve actually never heard of this book, but it sounded really interesting! And, just look at the cover! Argh!!! I usually don’t buy books with covers with gorgeous dresses on them (though I got Teardrop by Lauren Kate for Christmas… does that cover count as a dress?) but I love this! I’m so excited to read it!
I got it at my library book sale, which is always available for buying any types of books—children’s, YA, textbooks, heck, you can even by records there (there aren’t any that interest me, though). So, because I got this book at the library, I got the hardcover edition for $2! UGH why can’t all books be this awesomely-priced? Because then people like me would just collect mounds and heaps of books…
Wait… I already do that…
Author: Rainbow Rowell
I really love Rainbow Rowell’s covers—they just seem so simple.
I’ve heard so many great things about E&P, so I’m really excited to read it! Though, I’ve also heard some not so great things about the book, but hey, that’s how it is in the bookish world. I’ve heard it was on the sad side, so I don’t know… I’m kind of scared to read this…
Author: Chris Lynch
I think this book is kind of on the same page as Laurie Halse Anderson’s Speak, as I read the summary, and her review is on the cover. It sounds pretty interesting, though, and it looks like a short read, as was Speak.
(I got this book for another whopping $2—by now, I’m floating on clouds!)
I might read this book out of all the others first. Either this one, or the next book I have to show you…
Author: Christina Meredith
This cover was enough to intrigue me. When I read the inside flappy thing, it actually reminded me of Pushing the Limits (I got it from the Kindle store for, like, 69 cents or something wild like that—INSANE), though I haven’t yet read that one.
Anywho, I’m exited! This book and Inexcusable are both hardcovers, and I got them both at the book sale, so this was also $2. Eeeeeeeeeek!
Author: Elizabeth Chandler
This book is the second book in the spin-off series to Elizabeth Chandler’s other series, Kissed By An Angel. I actually have the Kissed By An Angel series, all bound in one book, and thought that Everlasting was a hardcover edition of one of the books in the Kissed By An Angel series.
But, nope! It’s still the spin-off, so that’s cool.
I love this cover, too. Black with a splash of color… GIMME.
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
I had to check Goodreads to see what this book was really called—I didn’t really know if I should call it Lux: Beginnings or what. (I also realized that JLA has written a lot of books! Must read!)
I blogged about my buying experience with this book here, so check that out if you’re interested (I seem to have a story for everything xD).
Beginnings is the first collector’s edition of the Lux series, and it includes the first two Lux books, Obsidian and Onyx. Man, just reading the titles of those books brings back memories from when I was reading them, haha! I think I started the series last November, when my Internet access was very limited… good times 😀
This book actually ties in with the next book I’m going to show you…
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
This is the second collector’s edition of the Lux series, which includes Opal and Origin, the third and fourth books in the series.
I actually really miss the male model on these covers 😄 His name is Pepe Toth, and I looked it up to see if he was digitally created or something…
Er, he’s real.
I don’t know if you can tell, but his outline from the Origin cover is, if you’re looking at the cover of Consequences, on your right. Like, his head is under the second ‘c’ in the word “consequences.” Can you see him? 😄
I think we all know the answer to this question Stephenie Meyer
Okay, so I got Twilight. It was literally ONE DOLLAR. WHY WOULDN’T I GET IT? Plus, I did like this book, so there.
Let the protest commence…
But, seriously. This series had many problems, but I actually enjoyed this book. It brought back a million memories from, like, five years ago, when everyone was going wild for Twilight. I swear, everywhere I turned, it was like, “Team Edward or Team Jacob?!”
And I was like, ?
I think we can all agree that these are the best covers. EVAH. Seriously, I love the black background with a splash of color thing. So, props to whoever designed the covers!
Author: Lauren Miller
I got to meet this author at an author event!!! And she signed my copy of the book 😀 It was amazing!
When Lauren Miller was talking about her book, it sounded soooo interesting and crazy and I just needed it.
So, yeah, that was fun! I haven’t been to an author event since last October >.<
Author: Anna Carey
This book… sounds so… freaking… awesome. It kind of reminded me of The Darkest Minds when I read about it, and OMG I LOVE THAT SERIES.
But, yeah, I’m really excited to read this, and hopefully it doesn’t disappoint!
Alright, guys, that’s my book haul! Lots of stuff went on!
I’d better go and put my new books back in their assigned places—I’m already beginning to run out of space on my shelves! I’ve been having to do some tricky maneuvering… I think I’ve got it.
Oh, one last thing before I go. So, remember the TBR cup I made? Well, I had to use it to catch a spider… *shudders* Anyway, this is my replacement… I got a kick out of it 😄
Thanks for reading,
