So I don’t know if everyone knew, but I along with many others, took advantage of the Book Outlet Summer Reading Sale. It was another one of their sales where everything was 15% off. I definitely went a little overboard but oh well! They were good prices and all came in good condition.
If you don’t know what Book Outlet is, they’re a website that sells books for cheaper prices. Some are in good condition, but there are some that are called Scratch and Dent copies which are a little more beat up. They have good selections at times, but other times they’re okay. But I enjoy shopping on there nonetheless. I’ll leave the link down below once again.
It’s packed to the brim almost!
So the first book I got from there is Jars of Hearts by Brad Barkley & Heather Hepler. It is the story of two sisters Chloe and Shana. Their mother is away and while Shana escapes under her goth garb, Chloe takes care of their adopted brother because their father is withdrawn. This one was mainly a cover buy, but I had heard of it and thought it sounded good so I got it during the sale.
I got Of Beast and Beauty by Stacey Jay. I heard great things about this and so I really wanted to pick it up. It is a beauty and the beast retelling so I was even more excited to pick it up! I love Beauty and the Beast, and I really love retellings of fairy tales (especially Cinder, and A Court of Thorns and Roses), so I’m super excited to see how this book goes and turns out.
I got Unremembered by Jessica Brody. It is a trilogy I believe about a girl who is on a plane and it goes down. No one expects there to be survivors but a girl is found in the wreckage who is unharmed and has no memories of even boarding the plane. This really sounded cool so I picked it up. They had the other books but I didn’t want to buy them yet.
Next I got The Line by Teri Hall. This book seems like a combination of The Dome, and Under the Never Sky. There is a border that lops off part of the US. There are bizarre creatures and superhumans live on the other side which is called Away. Then Rachel (main character) finds a recording which could have only come from the Away. It sounds amazing so I’m excited to check it out!
Next is Mortal Danger by Ann Aguirre. It is about a girl who has a score to settle with the beautiful people at her school. They drove her to despair and she makes a deal with someone named Kain and interesting things happen.
Public Enemies by Ann Aguirre. This is the second book to Mortal Danger so I can’t really give a summary. I for some reason just decided to buy the second book along with the first, when I didn’t for Unremembered. Don’t know why but I did. I like this cover, it’ll look awesome on my shelf!
Next is Princess of Thorns also by Stacey Jay. It is another retelling of Sleeping Beauty. I again heard awesome things about this book so I picked it up as well. I will probably read any and all retellings. I really enjoy them and some are really well done. So I like to see how authors twist the stories to create something great! So I hope to get to them sometime soon.
A Sky Unbroken by Megan Crewe is the next book in this haul. I love these covers so much! I really do! But this is the third book in the Earth & Sky trilogy. It’s basically about aliens. I haven’t read them yet but I really want to binge read them. The series is about a girl named Skylar, who has premonitions, and a boy named Win, who is part of a rebel group.
Trail by Fire by Josephine Angelini is the last book in this haul. I heard good things about this book and the writing so I decided to try it out and pick it up. This girl has allergies that can harm her, and after an incident at a party she wishes she could disappear. Then she ends up in a different Salem and what made her weak in her original world makes her stronger in the new world. Sounded interesting so I hope I like it.
And that is my Book Outlet book haul!
Let me know in the comments if you’ve read any of these books and what book you got from the Book Outlet Summer Reading Sale!
