Book Haul #50: Wow!

Wow! It’s my 50th book haul post! 😀 I think I should celebrate this. Maybe buy myself another book or something.

Anyway, here’s what I got since last time.

Black Leopard, Red Wolf by Marlon James

Marlon James is one of my favorite authors, though I’ve only read one of his now four books. But the one I read — The Book of Night Women, a historical fiction novel set on a plantation in Jamaica, — is one of my favorite books; so I was beyond excited when it was announced couple years back that he would write a fantasy novel.

Book Haul #49: Old to New

**Deep breath in** Ahh…the first book haul of the year. Who isn’t excited for that.

So in this haul are two books that I bought in the old year, hence the title of this post — “Old to New.” Anywho, to the books! 😀

Purchases

Bought last year
Last Stop on the Reindeer Express by Maudie Powell-Tuck, illus. by Karl James Mountford

I immediately fell in love with the cover of this children’s picture book when I saw it in the bookstore over the Christmas holidays. I love the illustrations and the design of the cover as well as the pages within. It’s so beautiful. I HAD to buy it.

Book Haul #48: Happy to Work in a Book Store

Helloooo EVERYONE who follows my blog or is just passing by! Glad to see you all again. I know it’s been a while since I last posted something. Life has been VERY busy because now yah girl is juggling 2 jobs and hardly has time for anything else. I’m so behind on my usual posts that I’m debating whether or not to do a November roundup (especially since we’re now in the middle of December).

But here I am! Back. And posting a book haul because a) it’s been a while since I’ve done so and b) I WORK IN A BOOKSTORE AND GOT A GREAT DISCOUNT!!! 😀 😀 I was so excited about the discount that I went a little crazy and bought more than I intended. I even ended up purchasing Michelle Obama’s Becoming twice! >> One for me and one for my auntie. 🙂 EVERYONE is getting her book. I can’t wait to read it.

Book Haul #46: Back to It

Can you believe that I haven’t done a book haul since May??!! I can’t believe it. I used to do a book haul damn near every month, but I’ve slowed down a bit on my book buying and have leaned more toward borrowing books from the library. Also, I simply forgot about book hauls. But I’m back again with one and since it’s been a while, this one will be quite long and I’ve probably already mentioned some of the books on here. Anyway, I do hope you’ll see something that interests you.

Book Haul #45 (cont’d): Borrowed Things

…and free things as well.

The first part of this book haul got a bit long because of how chatty I am, so I had to break it up in two. This part will feature all the stuff I borrowed from the library and things I got on Free Comic Book Day, which was a success for me this year because I made the effort to get up early and go to the store to get the selections I want.

**Note: Titles below are linked to Goodreads. But if I’ve read and posted a review of a book, I’ll link to my review.

Physical books

First of all, I got myself a Stranger Things Funko Pop. 😀 That’s Dustin, who’s my favorite character in the show.

Book Haul #45: Bought Things

And here’s my third book haul for the year. I think I’m doing well, though these haul posts are usually long. But despite the length, the majority of books are often free or borrowed from the library, I think. I haven’t bought that many books this year, compared to other years, which is good because once again I’ve ran out of space.

The Shape of Water by Guillermo del Toro and Daniel Kraus

I loved the movie and was elated when I heard a novelized version would be published. I immediately placed it on hold at my library and was one of the first patrons to receive a digital copy. But then I did a stupid thing and returned it by accident before I had a chance to read it.
