Book Haul – Last Week of May

It’s been a pretty successful day. I was able to volunteer at the Provo library and help set up their annual (semi-annual?) book sale. In exchange, they let all volunteers take up to five free books. What a deal! I’d seriously work for books any day. Here are the books that I accumulated this week.

BH 4

Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige – I checked this one out from the library this week. I’ve heard some good things about it.

Revenge of the Girl with the Great Personality by Elizabeth Eulberg – This book has been on my TBR for a while now and when I saw it at at thrift store I had to get it.

Hush, Hush and Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick – I’m pretty sure I’ve already read these two (at the very least Hush, Hush) and I’ve been wanting to finish the series. Especially once I found out that Becca Fitzpatrick graduated from BYU.

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak – Another book that’s just sitting on my TBR. I picked this one up because I thought my husband would enjoy having it as well.

Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins – You may remember that I bought the electronic version of this book for my birthday last month and I haven’t had the chance to read it yet…but when I saw this just sitting in a box at the book sale my gut instinct said, “Must…have…book” so I just grabbed it.

City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare – The last book in the Mortal Instruments series and the only one that I haven’t read yet. I’m still working on accumulating the entire collection (hardback only please) and then once I get that, I plan on reading all of them as a refresher before reading this one.

There you have it. I’ll be back at the library tomorrow to see if they put any other boxes out so I might end up with a couple more books, but I was just too eager to share what I’ve gotten so far. Any favorites in my haul?

  1. Great haul! I loved The Book Thief! It was different from what I usually read but I always enjoyed history, especially World War II/Holocaust. I also like Hush, Hush! I honestly enjoyed the series but I’m hearing that not many people loved them lol. Rebel Belle has been in my TBR for the longest time, too! I hope you like City of Heavenly Fire. I didn’t like it too much but hopefully it works out better for you than it did for me! Looking forward to your thoughts on it!

      1. I kind of want to work at Books-a-Million…the ladies at the one near me are just not nice. I want people to be excited about buying books!

  2. Awesome book haul! Dorothy Must Die and The Book Thief are really good! I’ve been wanting to read Rebel Belle. I wasn’t that big a fan of City of Heavenly Fire.

  3. Those are some great books you’ve got there! I really want to read The Book Thief and need to buy Rebel Belle! I’ve currently got the entire Hush Hush series on my shelf that I need to read. And I LOVED City of Heavenly Fire. (Also I feel the need to point out that you said “Immortal Instruments” instead of “The Mortal Instruments”)
    Excited to see what you think about these books! xoxo

  4. I have heard mixed reviews on Dorthy Must Die, but it is one I am interested in reading at some point – I just really enjoy retellings. I also have The Book Thief on my TBR list, but everything I have heard about that book and its author has been very positive. Looks like a great book haul!
