I’m so happy that I was able to get back into buying and reading books. While my TBR list is still huge, I just can’t help getting new books that are recommended by friends and family. Especially since I had such a quiet January!
Let’s jump right into it. Here are the books that I managed to pick up this month!
I recently did a pretty big haul from Ebay, Barnes & Noble, and my Book of the month subscription. I definitely had to start 2020 off correctly so here is the huge list of books that have bombarded my mailbox this first week of the new year.
I love Amazon and Barns & Noble, but getting all of my books there can be so expensive! Rotating between Ebay, Goodwill, and Antique stores is a great buffer for when I don’t have a bunch of money to blow on new books.
I really like getting books from Ebay and I’ve never gotten a book in bad shape. Plus, even though it is the peak of the holiday season I received them all a week early!
Just so we can see how much there is to save I will also provide the price per item (including tax). Without further ado, here are the books I bought in this haul.
All The Missing Girls
Megan Miranda $3.84
Alice Hoffman $3.84
I Believe in a Thing Called Love
Maurene Goo $4.30 (Hardcover)
The Upside of Unrequited
Becky Albertalli $3.99 (Hardcover)
The Night Circus
Erin Morgenstern $8.00
The Bookish Life of Nina Hill
Abbi Waxman $8.33
The Husband’s Secret
Liane Moriarty $3.68
Mary H.R. Choi $6.50
Everything I Never Told You
Celeste Ng $3.99
Every book on this list was a steal and they came in great condition. I really saved big on using Ebay instead of Amazon this purchase. In total I spent $46.47 with Ebay when this would have been a $87.37 purchase on Amazon. And to me, saving $40.90 is totally worth a bent corner or creased spine!
I hope you enjoyed this post and it inspires you to look into Ebay for your next buy! Let me know if you have read any of there or if they’re on your TBR.
Recently I went out to a local Barnes & Noble with a few friends to get a drink at the cafe and browse for new reading material. I should have known that I wouldn’t be able to just look. After about an hour and a half in the store I walked out with more than a few books that I am excited to read.
So, let’s get this book haul started and share what I picked up!
This book is translated by Heather Cleary for you English enjoyment. Ikigai is a Japanese philosophy and way of life. I admire many aspects of Japanese culture and really think this book looks interesting and I hope to take away tips on how to continue living happily into the future.
The Rules of Magic is the prequel to Practical Magic, which I have heard many good things about. This story follows three siblings in a coming of age tale filled with magic and historical references. I can’t wait to do a book review on this pick!
I Almost Forgot About You is a story about change and becoming the person you want to be. It is an inspiring motivational story and I am excited to see if it makes me want to change something about my life.
Bloom is coming of age story for a boy named Ari. He has recently graduated from high school and Ari wants to quit his family business and move to the big city with his band, but this summer may have other plans for him.
Richard is a graduate student struggling to write and in danger of loosing his funding. In comes Anne, a smart and accepting classmate that has the lifestyle of Richards dreams. After a one night stand with a successful lawyer, he finds himself unable to step away from Anne’s addictive life.
These gems are going to be really great reads and I can’t wait to get started! November’s Good Reads may be a little longer than Octobers with all of these books being read.
