So hopefully this book haul is the last for a few weeks since I’m trying to control my spending and get my savings back up since I just got back from Comic Con on Sunday so I need to get my savings account back up since it took a huge hit for paying for the hotel.
I highly doubt I’ll hold back for a few weeks but I’m trying to be optimistic here!
Anyways lets get to the books!
The first I got is Don’t Look Back by Jennifer L Armentrout which is a thriller she wrote and I’ve heard really good things about it so I figured I would get it on thrift books and check it out! I love books about mystery and secrets! It sounds really good!
Summary: Samantha is a stranger in her own life. Until the night she disappeared with her best friend, Cassie, everyone said Sam had it all – popularity, wealth, and a dream boyfriend.
Sam has resurfaced, but she has no recollection of who she was or what happened to her that night. As she tries to piece together her life from before, she realizes it’s one she no longer wants any part of. The old Sam took “mean girl” to a whole new level, and it’s clear she and Cassie were more like best enemies. Sam is pretty sure that losing her memories is like winning the lottery. She’s getting a second chance at being a better daughter, sister, and friend, and she’s falling hard for Carson Ortiz, a boy who has always looked out for her-even if the old Sam treated him like trash.
But Cassie is still missing, and the truth about what happened to her that night isn’t just buried deep inside of Sam’s memory – someone else knows, someone who wants to make sure Sam stays quiet. All Sam wants is the truth, and if she can unlock her clouded memories of that fateful night, she can finally move on. But what if not remembering is the only thing keeping Sam alive?
I also got Forever with You by the same author and this is part of her Wait for You series so I won’t be leaving the summary for this book but I hope to get to this series soon since I’ve heard a lot of good things about this series! I want to finish this series before the year is over so let’s hope I get to it soon!
I also got Anne of Green Gables by L M Montgomery in this beautiful edition! It’s so pretty and I was so happy I saw this on Thriftbooks! I have never read Anne of Green Gables before but I know it’s a childhood classic for many people and so I decided to one day pick it up and reading it! I don’t think I need to leave a summary but I will anyways incase some of you aren’t familiar with this story.
Summary: Everyone’s favorite redhead, the spunky Anne Shirley, begins her adventures at Green Gables, a farm outside Avonlea, Prince Edward Island. When the freckled girl realizes that the elderly Cuthberts wanted to adopt a boy instead, she begins to try to win them and, consequently, the reader, over.
I actually didn’t get this next book from Thriftbooks but I got it at the Amazon bookstore a few towns over but I figured I would include it in this haul. It’s The Last Wish by Andrzej Sapkowski. Wow what a name!
I think this is a video game book or something I’m honestly not sure but I saw someone recommending the series on their instagram and it really interested me so I found the first book at the Amazon bookstore and just decided to check it out! I guess I’ll let you know what I think about it later on!
Summary: Geralt of Rivia is a witcher. A cunning sorcerer. A merciless assassin.
And a cold-blooded killer.
His sole purpose: to destroy the monsters that plague the world.
But not everything monstrous-looking is evil and not everything fair is good. . . and in every fairy tale there is a grain of truth.
The international hit that inspired the video game: The Witcher.
I then got Into the Wilderness by Sara Donati which has been pitched to me as a book similar to Outlander. It’s another big series that takes place in America I believe. I’ll leave the summary below but I heard April mention that she was recommended it and I decided to just pick it up since it was so cheap on Thriftbooks.
The summary makes it sound so good so I decided to dive into it soon! I think it’s a bit older but I’ll still leave a review about it.
It’s actually kind of out of my comfort zone so I hope it allows me to push out of my boundaries and try new books!
Summary: Weaving a tapestry of fact and fiction, Sara Donati’s epic novel sweeps us into another time and place…and into the heart of a forbidden affair between an unconventional Englishwoman and an American frontiersman.
It is December of 1792. Elizabeth Middleton leaves her comfortable English estate to join her family in a remote New York mountain village. It is a place unlike any she has ever experienced. And she meets a man unlike any she has ever encountered – a white man dressed like a Native American, Nathanial Booner, known to the Mohawk people as Between-Two-Lives. Determined to provide schooling for all the children of the village, she soons finds herself locked in conflict with the local slave owners as well as her own family.
Interweaving the fate of the Mohawk Nation with the destiny of two lovers, Sara Donati’s compelling novel creates a complex, profound, passionate portrait of an emerging America.
I also got Toxic by Kim Karr which I heard from Jessica on Booktube but the funny thing is that I don’t really remember what it’s about anymore…my memory is really bad so I forget to check the summary all the time. I think it’s about a girl trying to save her family business. Something like that! I’ve never read a book by her so lets hope I end up enjoying the book!
Summary: He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not…
New York Times bestselling author Kim Karr turns up the heat in a smoking hot, emotionally compelling new novel that takes you into the world of Manhattan’s elite.
In Toxic, Jeremy McQueen, a sexy, intense, sometimes brooding entrepreneur goes after what he wants—the woman he left behind years ago. Phoebe St. Claire, a put together, in control socialite-turned-CEO has been drifting through life searching for something she thought she’d never find again—the right man to share her future.
Our passion was boundless. Our lust untamed. And our desire endless. He was the only man who ever made me feel alive. Then, I betrayed him.
When he reappeared, I didn’t question it. Trust rarely survives the wrecking ball, so when he let me in back in—I didn’t hesitate.
Maybe I should have.
What began as a bid to save my family business, turned into a second chance at love. It felt so romantic. Working together, side by side, with the man I loved. My dream come true.
Nothing is as good as it seems.
We had our issues, but then again, every couple does. It wasn’t jealousy, or our too-hot sex life that I should have been worried about.
It was his darkside.
I never saw the end coming, until it slammed me in the face. The question is—did he?
Was revenge his plan all along?
Sometimes you have to wonder if your life is too good to be true.
Is it real or just an illusion?
Does the man lying beside you really love you like he says he does?
If the answer is yes, you’re meant to live happily ever after.
If the answer is no, you’re living my life, and nothing will ever be the same.
What you do about it—that’s up to you.
Me, I’m in too deep and there’s no getting out.
I’ll take whatever I can get for as long as I can because I know when it’s over…
I’ll never find another man like him.
I finally got the first book in the Mastered series by Lorelei James. I have like the third and fourth so now I just need to get the second book! I loved her Need You series and I can’t wait for the fourth book to come out, but I also really want to read this series! I will eventually pick up her Cowboy series which sounds super good! She’s definitely becoming a auto buy author for romance for me! Highly recommend her series!
Summary: Former small-town girl Amery Hardwick is living her dream as a graphic designer in Denver, Colorado. She’s focused on building her business, which leaves little time for dating—not that she needs a romantic entanglement to fulfill her. When her friend signs up for a self-defense class as part of her recovery after an attack, Amery joins her for support. That’s where she meets him.
Ronin Black, owner of the dojo, is so drawn to Amery that he takes over her training—in public and in private. The enigmatic Ronin pushes Amery’s boundaries from the start, and with each new tryst, Amery becomes addicted to the pleasure and to him. But when Amery senses Ronin is hiding something, she questions her total trust in him, despite the undeniable thrill of his possession .
Last book for this haul is All Lined Up by Cora Carmack! I have her other book in this series, which is the Rusk University series. I believe this is the first, and now I have the first two so I can start reading this series. I have her Losing It series so I need to finish that series as well. I’ve read the first book and loved it so I can’t wait to get into the other books!
Summary: Dallas Cole loathes football. That’s what happens when you spend your whole childhood coming in second to a sport. College is her time to step out of the bleachers, and put the playing field (and the players) in her past.
But life doesn’t always go as planned. As if going to the same college as her football star ex wasn’t bad enough, her father, a Texas high school coaching phenom, has decided to make the jump to college ball… as the new head coach at Rusk University. Dallas finds herself in the shadows of her father and football all over again.
Carson McClain is determined to go from second-string quarterback to the starting line-up. He needs the scholarship and the future that football provides. But when a beautiful redhead literally falls into his life, his focus is more than tested. It’s obliterated.
Dallas doesn’t know Carson is on the team. Carson doesn’t know that Dallas is his new coach’s daughter.
And neither of them know how to walk away from the attraction they feel.
And that is my newest thrift books haul! I hope you enjoyed it and let me know in the comments if you’ve read these books and your thoughts and what you hope to get this month as I would love to know!
