Book Haul Sunday - August 31

Book Haul time!

Okay so this will be a quick one. I got these at my local thrift store and one from a library book sale.

Ice Haven by Daniel Clowes
This was $1.00. I was looking through the kids books (my sister just had a baby, I'm an auntie!) and this was in it. I thought it looked cool but bam! the first page I see had a womans boob just staring at me. (Not for kids)

Next is...

The Future Of Us by Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler
This was a $1.50. I've read books by both of these authors and really enjoyed them. This book is an ARC but I have no problem buying it. If it is beyond amazing I'll go out and buy the hardcover. 


Winter's Tale by Mark Helprin 
It was a $1.50 as well. I watched the movie and really enjoyed it. So once I heard it was a book I put it on my wishlist and I go to the thrift store and fine it. Awesome.

Do you see it, do you!?!?!?!?!

Battle Royal by Koushun Takami
Like all the other paperbacks this was $1.50. $1.50. $1.50…

Book Haul Sunday - August 24th

Book Haul Time!
This is an exciting one. So First one. (Right to Left)

You should already know what it is. Look at it's greatness, it's beauty. It's the new Harry Potter box set. Ever since they said they were designing new covers I was excited to see it. When it showed what it looked like in box set form I had to get it. 

It's my first brand new box set $58.42 from amazon. (Be warned all of the books front and back have those buttery(?)covers.They could get dirty pretty easily.)

The Greatest Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
This was a bargain book from Walmart for $7.95, it's not the complete works but most of the complete novels. I've been wanting to read all the Holmes books for a long time.


The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black
This is another book from Walmart for $8.50. It was the last one on the shelf I quickly grabbed it. I am so excited to read this book, but what makes me so much more excited is in the back there …
