The “Treat Yo Self” Book Haul

Last weekend  was the SPCA booksale and since I’m now a working adult, I decided to treat myself (because I totally never treated myself before I got a job). This is my book haul:

And of course, no SPCA booksale haul is complete without a Bargain Books haul. I also visited two bookstores with regular priced books just so I could tell the books that I had a job but I still wouldn’t be buying them because they were expensive AF. I know, I have issues.

 

Bargain Books was having an Autumn sale but I only bought these two books… Because I already owned all the other books that were on sale. Think I might have to stop visiting Bargain Books so often.

What books did you buy most recently? And more importantly, do you own a print copy of ACOWAR? Let me know below.

April Book Haul

It’s that time of the month again! April is almost over (HOW is the year moving so quickly???) which means it’s time for another book haul.

April Book Haul

I was really good this month and bought a pretty reasonable amount of books. Are you laughing at me? Stop it. I swear I’m serious! I’ll show you.

My SPCA book haul was pretty small especially considering I made my mother buy a few of these. It was just slightly over R100 and I am incredibly proud of myself for that.

SPCA Book Haul There are a few Buffy books that I realised only after buying that they were all part of various series so I’m probably not going to read them. Then there’s “The Ship of Brides” by Jojo Moyes. I haven’t read much by her besides “Me Before You” and “After You”. I enjoyed those books immensely though so I’m guessing I’ll enjoy this too. Nora Robert’s “Dance Upon the Air” and “Heaven and Earth” were two books I had been looking for since I found the third book (I think it’s called “Face the Fire” but I’m not too sure) at the SPCA book sale earlier on in the year. I don’t remember the series that well but I know that I loved it. “The Heroes of Olympus: The Mark of Athena” was one of those “I’m going to read this series eventually so I should just buy the books” purchases. Have I started the series yet? Nope. Are you surprised? I didn’t think so. Lastly I bought Kardashian Konfidential. I wasn’t sure if I wanted it but since it was R20 my mother convinced me to take it. Can you see where I get my spending habits from?

Of course after this small haul I felt a bit bad because none of these books were books that made me go “Omg I can’t wait to read these”. So I decided  to go to Bargain Books and they were having a sale. So I just browsed. And came home with this:

Bargain Books Haul

Now THOSE books made me say “Omg I can’t wait to get home and start reading”. Especially since every time I visited Bargain Books  since last year November, I would pick up “All the Bright Places” and wish that it was discounted. All of these books actually are books that I really wanted for a long time so this haul made me really happy.

Then the week after that I was working on a Saturday and decided to reward myself with a visit to the bookstore. I found this gem for sale.

Empire of Storms

Look at how gorgeous it looks in the sun. Why don’t I take more book pictures in the sun?

I didn’t do much reading this month (hey I just started work okay? I am adjusting to being an adult) but I did read and enjoy Glass Faerie by Rachel Morgan.

What was your April book haul like? What did you read? I’d love to know below.
