Library Sale | Book Haul

I finally made it to the library for the first time since I have moved here almost 6 months ago. There are like 6 different branches and I made sure to locate the one that has a library book sale the first Saturday of every month! I was a little overwhelmed because it is one of the bigger library book sales I have seen and they had so many titles to look through. There were also so many people there as well. I decided to pick up a lot of books in a series that I own some already of that way I can work on completing series! All of these books only cost me $15 and many are Hardcover in great condition, so it was a steal! I also picked up this awesome felt board that have been quite popular today at Target for $5!

October Book Haul | 2017

So I made a trip to Half Price Books and ended up making some purchases for myself. I also received a book from Entangled Publishing! A.G Howard is my of my favorite authors and I found a signed copy of one of her books that I have read, but didn’t own yet! I also found an amazing old edition of A Christmas Carol by Dickens. I am not a huge Christmas fan, but identify with Scrooge and love collecting older editions of classics!

Surprise Book Box | Entangled Publishing

I came home to an absolutely perfect unexpected surprise in the mail today! This is the first time I have received a book box from a publisher and feel so honored to get this opportunity! Thank you to Entangled Publishing and the author Mary Lindsey so much for this opportunity and the chance to read Haven!

♠ Hardcover Copy of Haven by Mary Lindsey (Release Date:11/7/17)

♠ Haven Inspired Mug ” No excuses go get it, girl” – I cant wait to read the book and find out the context of this quote, but it is perfect motivation for my morning coffee! 

♠ Haven Themed Tote Bag- There is no such thing as too many tote bags and this one will be perfect for me to transport items with a cute quote “We all have a beast inside. The only difference is what form it takes when freed.”

♠ Lavender Sachet- This smells so amazing and I have been meaning to pick up some lavender for my room! 

♠ Handmade Wolf Charm Bookmark- I love wolves and this bookmark it just adorable!

♠ Stickers- There were 2 stickers! One was of the book and the other says ” Keep Calm and Howl On”!

♠ Not pictured:Chocolate- There was some super yummy chocolate in the box but I ate it before I took pictures (oops)

Additional Entangled Swag

♠ Outlet USB Charger- You can never have too many of these either since I am always losing mine

♠ “I’m a Book Nerd” Poster- I am so stoked about this poster. I was looking for more art and posters to hang up on my wall next to my bookshelf and this will be absolutely perfect! 

 

Again thanks so much to Entangled Publishing! I am so excited about this package, the goodies and especially the book! It will definitely be the next book I pick up!

While I Was Away Book Haul

Over the past year I have acquired a lot of books. Some were sent to me for review and others I either bought or got from this amazing free book store. If any of you are from the Baltimore area there is a place called The Book Thing. It is a free book store that has donated books in which you can go in and take as many as you want. It is a wonderful thing for book lovers. Now that I am back home I really wish that I had something like that at my disposal. While going through all these books you might notice something different. I have really started to get into non-fiction lately and especially those non-fiction books that pertain to what I am interested in, went to school for and want a career in!
