From Black Friday all the way until Christmas, I acquired SO many books. There were just so many opportunities to buy such awesome books and I couldn't pass them up (as you will soon be able to tell). Usually, I would list all of the titles and authors of each book but because of the ginormous size of this haul, I only took pictures of the books (categorized by how/when I got them). I tried to take every picture so that all titles could be seen but if you have any questions as to what any of them are, comment below and I will be sure to answer. Let the haulin' begin!
So, the madness all started on Black Friday. I decided to go to Barnes and Noble (I had control there and somehow managed to only walk out with my mom's Christmas present) and BAM. There, I had a coupon and decided to buy three books.
Then, I decided to make a Book Outlet purchase. Everything online was 30% off plus I signed up to get some Black Friday bucks which was basically like a $5 gift card if you spent a certain amount. I went a tad bit crazy and received all of these lovely books.
My library has this ongoing sale in their downstairs section where they sell books for 50 cents to a dollar. Every time I go, I scour the small shelf to see if they have anything I am interested in. I came across these brand new hardcovers (part of the same series) and they seemed really interesting so I picked them up. I couldn't pass these up for $2!
This month I also did some #bookfortrades. I still need to send out two packages but other than that, I am all caught up and good to go. Thanks so much to Rachel, Rachel, and Lisa! I can't wait to read all three of these lovely books.
A few weekends ago, my mom and I decided to stop by a new dollar store in our area. Most dollar stores have a small book section and the ones around me usually suck. However, I always check just in case. I am glad I did check that day because I found a book that I had been wanting to read for a while now. I almost ordered it off of Book Outlet a few times but since I got it for just $1, it was actually cheaper to buy it here!
Then, on Christmas Eve I got an email telling me a package from HMH Kids was going to be arriving that day. I didn't see the email that was sent to me a few days prior (later found in spam) but the lovely publicist over at HMH Kids was kind enough to grant my requests for these upcoming 2016 titles. Thanks so much, Meredith!
Then, my favorite day of the year came along. CHRISTMAS! Christmas 2015 had to have been one of the best bookish Christmases I ever had! I got tons of awesome new books, bookish goodies, and even new BOOKSHELVES which I am more than pumped about. I am so thankful for my family and for all of the wonderful gifts they got me, especially all of these awesome books.
I also received a few gift cards to places where I could obtain even more books (Barnes and Noble and Amazon)! My mom and I went out to Barnes and Noble the next day and then, with my two day shipping, I received my other book two days after Christmas. I usually never get this many hardcovers in one go but I decided to splurge and treat myself.
I went through all of the pictures and I counted 49 books. I may be off by a few but either way, OMG THAT IS CRAZY. This is one of my craziest book hauls in a looooooong time. You would think I would have slowed down but nope. I just placed two more Book Outlet orders today thanks to their Boxing Day sale! I guess you will be seeing another book haul here quite soon.
Let me know if you have read/want to read any of these books and your thoughts!
