Hey everyone! I got a few packages in the mail from Thriftbooks, which I know I shouldn’t have bought because I’m trying to lower my book spending. But this time of year is really hard for me to hold back because there are so many coupons and discounts coming out from bookstores and yeah….I can’t hold myself back. So expect more books to come in the mail again soon because no self control.
Anyways here are the books I got recently from Thriftbooks! I might do my Book Off Haul if I remember!
But the first book I got from Thriftbooks is Emily of New Moon by L M Montgomery. I have the first book of the Anne of Green Gables series in this edition and I wanted to get this book to match. I think this cover is so pretty! I haven’t read a book by her but I hope I end up liking them since I went out of my way to find these editions.
Summary: Emily Starr never knew what it was to be lonely — until her beloved father died. Now Emily’s an orphan, and her mother’s snobbish relatives are taking her to live with them at New Moon Farm. She’s sure she won’t be happy. Emily deals with stiff, stern Aunt Elizabeth and her malicious classmates by holding her head high and using her quick wit. Things begin to change when she makes friends: with Teddy, who does marvelous drawings; with Perry, who’s sailed all over the world with his father yet has never been to school; and above all, with Ilse, a tomboy with a blazing temper. Amazingly, Emily finds New Moon beautiful and fascinating. With new friends and adventures, Emily might someday think of herself as Emily of New Moon.
I also got this really cool version of Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion. I haven’t read this book but I have heard many people say really good things about it so I found this copy on Thriftbooks and decided to get it. I really hope that I like it since I’ve heard so many good things about it.
Summary: R is having a no-life crisis—he is a zombie. He has no memories, no identity, and no pulse, but he is a little different from his fellow Dead. He may occasionally eat people, but he’d rather be riding abandoned airport escalators, listening to Sinatra in the cozy 747 he calls home, or collecting souvenirs from the ruins of civilization.
And then he meets a girl.
First as his captive, then his reluctant guest, Julie is a blast of living color in R’s gray landscape, and something inside him begins to bloom. He doesn’t want to eat this girl—although she looks delicious—he wants to protect her. But their unlikely bond will cause ripples they can’t imagine, and their hopeless world won’t change without a fight.
I decided to get Beautiful Oblivion by Jamie McGuire. I have three of her books and am adding to my collection of her Beautiful series I believe it’s called. I know they’re really angsty books so I hope my heart can handle it. I believe it’s linked with the Beautiful Disaster series that deals with one of the brothers from this set of books. So before I start this series so I might be reading the other series first then this one.
Summary: Fiercely independent Camille “Cami” Camlin gladly moved on from her childhood before it was over. She has held down a job since before she could drive, and moved into her own apartment after her freshman year of college. Now tending bar at The Red Door, Cami doesn’t have time for much else besides work and classes, until a trip to see her boyfriend is cancelled, leaving her with a first weekend off in almost a year.
Trenton Maddox was the king of Eastern State University, dating co-eds before he even graduated high school. His friends wanted to be him, and women wanted to tame him, but after a tragic accident turned his world upside down, Trenton leaves campus to come to grips with the crushing guilt.
Eighteen months later, Trenton is living at home with his widower father, and works full-time at a local tattoo parlor to help with the bills. Just when he thinks his life is returning to normal, he notices Cami sitting alone at a table at The Red.
As the baby sister of four rowdy brothers, Cami believes she’ll have no problem keeping her new friendship with Trenton Maddox strictly platonic. But when a Maddox boy falls in love, he loves forever—even if she is the only reason their already broken family could fall apart.
So I picked up the first two books in the Savage Trilogy by Mia Gabriel. The second one is down below but I hope to get to this soon. I’ve heard this is a really steamy and amazing book so I want to read it soon! Maybe next week or something so I can have a fun read to binge.
Summary: Once trapped in a loveless, pleasure-less marriage, Evelyn Hart leaves her home in New York for the glittering ballrooms of London. However, when she arrives she meets the Earl of Savage, a dark, powerful man who seems to live up to his name, despite his noble trappings, a man who possesses her with just one look. Soon Evelyn finds herself pulled into Savage’s world—a world of passion unlike any she has ever experienced. Evelyn’s heart is captured with no hope of escape. But can they overcome the tortures of the past together?
Savage never imagined someone like Evelyn walking into his life. As soon as he sees her he knows he must have her, no matter the cost.
I also got On My Knees by Meredith Wild, even though I haven’t read her Hacker series yet….But I plan to fix that soon! I hope! Then I can get this series read as well! My goal is to binge read the Hacker series at some point so yeah!
Summary: Haunted by the responsibility of caring for her troubled family, Maya Jacobs gave the only answer she could when Cameron asked her to marry him. Years later, entrenched in a soulless professional routine, she distracts herself from the lingering regret of her decision with a “work hard, play hard” lifestyle that guarantees no man will ever find his way into her heart again.
Cameron Bridge has spent the past five years married to the military, trying to escape the painful memory of losing Maya. After fighting his own war in the desert, he starts a new life in New York City, with his siblings, Olivia and Darren, by his side.
When fate brings Maya back to him in the heart of a city filled with its own hopes and shadows, can Cameron find the girl he once loved in the woman she’s become?
I lastly got Savage Nights by Mia Gabriel, the second book with Lord Savage. I again am planning on reading this book next week as well to take a break with a steamy book! I won’t leave the summary since its the second book and I don’t know if this is a companion series yet or not! I don’t want to spoil anything about it.
Anyways that’s my little haul from Thriftbooks! I may post my haul from Book Off but I just have to grab all the books that I got and take pictures of them! Stay tuned for that!
Also stay tuned for a giveaway I’ll be hosting soon!
