Hello for the second time today!! I was just going to do this post tomorrow but I’ve been reading the books from this haul so I figured it was probably best to post it now. All I have to say is “DARN YOU THRIFT STORES AND YOUR REASONABLE PRICES ON BOOKS!!!” I have bought so many books from one of many local thrift stores. Now granted I’m not spending a lot I think it’s only been $14 for all of these but still. I don’t need more books (yes I do) and this is going to get worse the more thrift stores I visit. In all seriousness thrift stores are great for finding books especially if you’re on a tight budget. You’ll find a lot of hidden gems but sometimes you find current popular books because someone didn’t like it. So without further ado lets get into the damage.
The Eyes of the Dragon by Stephen King: I enjoy his horror books even though they cause me emotion trauma so I thought I would try something that wasn’t so scary. It’s a story of princes and dragons so I am totally down for that.
Covenant with the Vampire by Jeanne Kalogridis: Read this and loved it. The prequel to Dracula. Go read my full review. Totally skin crawling book.
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell: Just finished this and posted a review today. It’s a cute summer read but not worth all the hype in my opinion.
The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larson: I think everyone and their mother knows about this book but I have never read it. I’m really looking forward to reading it after all these years of constant debate over buying it.
The American Heiress by Daisy Goodwin: A historical fiction about money, power, and love. The copy I bought looks well loved so I’m hoping I’ll love it to. I love novels with scandal and societies.
The Dragon Queen by Alice Borchardt: It’s a novel about King Arthur’s wife Guenivere but not as a simpering idiot. I love Arthurian legends but usually hate the boring Gwen so I’m interested in a new twist that might make her more interesting.
Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver: This book has been floating around for a few years now and I haven’t given it much notice. The concept is interesting since it’s the Groundhog Day effect. A girl must relive the day of her death seven times to see what she will lose.
The Light Between Oceans by M. L. Stedman: I’ve also seen this one around for a bit and never looked to see what it is about. I’ve been informed that this book will make me cry
Switched by Amanda Hocking: A fantasy story about a fairy changeling. This looks dark and interesting. A good friend of mine recommends this highly.
