It’s book haul time! And as per usual I have a giant pile to get through. This month’s excuse: I found an awesome book warehouse in my area called The Book People who happened to be running a sale on their already ridiculously cheap books. On top of that all the books I ordered for school in late February plus some more were delivered during March.
I’ll start off with all the books I got for campus. This term we’re reading Buddha of Suburbia by Hanif Kureishi, The Reluctant Fundamentalist by Mohsin Hamid and The French Lieutenant’s Woman by John Fowles among other. I also finally received Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl by Harriet Jacobs just in time for my test.
Still on the topic of university I finally got copies of Deadlands and Death of a Saint by Lily Herne from Reader’s Warehouse. I’m planning focusing my long research essay/mini-thesis on these two books. I also bought The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon, Magic Study by Maria V. Snyder and Winter by Marissa Meyer.
Exclusive Books had the Carnival Sale happening during March, however, the selection of books wasn’t too great so I only bought a couple of sale books. The first being Awaken by Meg Cabot. I immediately regretted it when I got home and realised that I bought a copy of the wrong edition. A couple of days later I found the correct edition and really had to resist buying it… The other book I got from the sale was Gideon Smith and the Mechanical Girl by David Barnett. I also bought Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton (I’m giving away a copy of this book over on Instagram. Details at the end of this post.) and The Walled City by Ryan Graudin, although these were not on sale.
I’m a sucker for well price books so I just had to try out Raru.co.za. I ordered Six of Crow by Leigh Bardugo and Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor and was really impressed by how quickly they delivered.
I bought this gorgeous copy of The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern at a second hand book store.
And then I found this awesome book warehouse in the Southern Suburbs called The Book People. Their book are so cheap and they actually have a wide variety of Young Adult Fiction. It was like being in book heaven. I only ended up buying three books from them during March, did kind of only find them at the end of the month. I have returned since then and bought tons of books that I’ll haul at the end of April. The three books I got were Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare, I now finally have the completed trilogy, The Finisher by David Baldacci because it sounded rather interesting and Rebel Spring by Morgan Rhodes, despite not having the first book I had to get this copy because I really want to start this series and it was so cheap to just leave there. I have Falling Kingdoms on order for this month.
