Bookworms, NOW is the time to stock up on all those books you wanted but couldn't afford. The publishers are slashing prices on a lot of prime titles (especially hardcovers) to make room for new arrivals this fall (paperbacks, sequels, new series, etc.). The best part? It doesn't overly stress out your wallet!

Here are all the books I picked up at rock-bottom prices during the month of May. Hopefully I'll have my "regular" purchases video up by the weekend. It's already filmed! Today's video filmed last week. Oops...? I need to start uploading these in a timelier fashion...

In this video, I show you:


*Various Notebooks/Journals (x5)
*EVIL GENIUS by Catherine Jinks
*GENIUS SQUAD by Catherine Jinks


*IF I STAY by Gayle Forman (Can't WAIT to finally read this!)
*WHAT I WORE TO SAVE THE WORLD by Maryrose Wood (If you asked me before this week, I would have SWORN I'd never heard of this book...or this author. But I just realized that this week, I've been reading an ARC of THE POISON DIARIES by her! Small world...)
*PRINCESS MIA by Meg Cabot
*PARANORMALCY by Kiersten White (Because my soul sister twin Ashley at Books from Bleh to Basically Amazing said I had to read this!)
*FIRELIGHT by Sophie Jordan (Thanks to Kristi @ The Story Siren for posting about this deal on Twitter & sending me to Amazon in the first place! I reviewed FIRELIGHT last year)
*RADIANT DARKNESS by Emily Whitman (Yet ANOTHER tale of Persephone & Hades. They're everywhere, I tell you, everywhere!)


*PSYCHE IN A DRESS by Francesca Lia Block
*THE FAIRY REBEL by Lynne Reid Banks (I used to LOVE this book! OMG!)
*HAZEL by Julie Hearn
*DROP by Lisa Papademetriou


*HEX HALL by Rachel Hawkins (Which I reviewed earlier this year! SO GOOD!)
*THE VESPERTINE by Saundra Mitchell


*lot of 15 novels by Patricia McKillip (Thanks to the recommendation by Sarah J. Maas, author of the upcoming novel QUEEN OF GLASS)

I'm way too lazy to type up all the titles, but here are images for those of you who are curious. Has anyone read her? Where should I start? Are the books connected or stand-alones? I don't want to read all the best ones first, either, because then I'll always be disappointed with the rest.... WAY too many choices!


...And what's that I hear? Another library book sale TOMORROW? Okay, yes, thank you!!!


  1. Hey hey!! :) You go FT Soul Twin! Can't wait to hear what you think of Paranormalcy! :)

  2. holy smokes!

    I'm reading If I Stay and WOW! Better girl get started on DIVERGENT - I have bags under my eyes and went to work with bed head... Totally absolutely WORTH IT!

  3. Impressive stack of bargain books. What a haul! Happy reading!

  4. I'm always impressed with your hauls! Hope you'll get a chance to enjoy all of them :)

  5. Great collection of books you got there. I love book bargains, how much was each book? I would love to pass on this info on my blog. Also, I can't wait to start Divergent, but I have several books ahead of it to read first. I heard it was really good.

  6. OMG PATRICIA A. MCKILLIP!!!! I absolutely loveeeee her books. Definitely start with Winter Rose, that is the book that got me to love reading.

  7. Ashley, my wallet cried (albeit at bargain prices) because of YOU, my darling! PARANORMALCY isn't topmost on my list, but I will hopefully get to it later this year! Too many books I'm DYING to read atm!!

    @Aisley B: I know, right? Too many...I'm drowning in books. I *almost* started DIVERGENT the other day. Took the cover off and all. Then realized that maybe I can't renew AWAKEN at the library this wk, so I read that...and then ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS. Next book after PROGENY for my book tour? I hope so!

    @Gina: I have more bargain loot this month already! I love libraries. And bargains!

    @Vy: Libraries and used sales are your BEST FRIENDS in life. So much loot for so little! I just need more time to READ it all!

    @Lena: They ranged in price. The Amazon stuff went from $3-$6. Most of the hardbacks were $5ish. IF I STAY was $3-something. It's one of those deals where you can snap them up until Amazon runs out of copies, then they're gone. Same with BN. I think most of the spring clearance is gone now, but a new clearance sale is starting later in June! Watch out for it!

    @Chelsey: Okay, I will start with WINTER ROSE. Thank you for the rec! *excited!*
