Book haul! Just in time for Mother’s Day

If my kids ever question what I might want for future Mother’s Days…books. Always books.

Volunteering at the library is both a good thing and a bad thing for me. Good because I love libraries and getting to work at one is awesome. Bad because every time I have a volunteer shift, I HAVE to stop by the sale section. It’s a compulsion. Luckily, I was able to hold myself to just one book from the sale section this week (the other three books I got from other places).

BH 3

1) Archenemy by Frank Beddor – This completes The Looking Glass Wars Trilogy for me since I already had the first two. The funny thing about it is that I clearly remember reading the first two books in the trilogy, but I don’t remember reading this one. I’m sure I did, I just can’t remember it.

2) An Abundance of Katherines by John Green – I have yet to read anything by John Green, but this has been on my TBR forever and it’s always checked out on Overdrive! So for fifty cents I thought, “Why not?” and just bought it for myself.

3) Finding Mr. Brightside by Jay Clark – I won this book in a giveaway from Sydney over at Books and Stuff. I’m really excited to read it because I’ve seen some good reviews on it.

4) Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen – Sarah Dessen is my favorite author. I was a little disappointed with her last book, but I’m so excited to read this one. I’d been struggling with whether or not to buy it quite yet because I knew I wouldn’t be able to get to it for a little while. I’d finally decided to wait a little bit before buying it when my husband came home with a signed copy that he found at Target. What a guy!

Have you read any of my new books? Did you like them?

  1. Library sales are the best. I once worked at a university library and every so often they would have a huge sale where you could bring a box and fill it up with as many books as you like and it would still only cost 5 dollars. I got a number of Tom Clancy books that way.

    1. Oh my gosh. That sounds like heaven. I know towards the end of the month my library does a fill-a-bag for $1 (they restock on the first of the month) but I haven’t been able to make it for one of those yet.


  2. Haha! I know how that is. I worked at a shoe store in college and couldn’t resist the sale section there either. I’ve always wanted to work in a book store at least once in my life, but it’s probably a good thing I don’t. I wouldn’t make any money.
