More Library Books!

That’s right, it’s time again for my library book sale haul! I found some fantastic books this time, super pleased with what I got.

Squint if you want, but you can’t see everything I got just in this photo. 😉

Here’s a breakdown of what my haul consisted of:

I’ve been looking for these for a little while now, and I finally managed to get my hands on them. They’re not matching, and the first one is in hardcover, but that’s okay! Usually when I buy these library books, I buy them with the intention of being okay about accidentally beating them up since they’re not usually in pristine condition in the first place. I’ll get a second copy for the shelves that won’t be touched if I end up loving them, and I think I will, since Patrick Rothfuss’ The Name of the Wind and The Wise Man’s Fear are both highly, highly rated on Goodreads. I can’t wait to read them, though I might wait until book 3 has a release date set. I don’t need another George R. R. Martin to wait around for. (Even though it’s SO worth it.)

Next are two books I wasn’t particularly looking for, The Scorch Trials and The Death Cure by James Dashner. I liked The Maze Runner (I did a book-to-movie review of sorts), but I wasn’t really planning on continuing the series. However, these were hella cheap, so I figured why not?

Next we’ve got a book I’ve been meaning to get since high school and a book I’m going to be sharing with my mother: House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski and Best Little Stories from the Civil War by C. Brian Kelly, respectively. According to Goodreads, there’s also a version of the stories one for WWII, and if I like this one, then you know I’m going to have a need for that one.

Following that we have The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon, which is a book I’ve been meaning to pick up since I heard Reagan from Peruse Project on YouTube talk about it. They had two different covers available, but this one was in better shape, so I went for this one, even though I’m probably going to buy a matching set of the series if I like it. I also picked up Last Argument of Kings by Joe Abercrombie even though it’s the third book in the series and I don’t own the others, simply because it looks AWESOME. Seriously. It’s shiny and papery and I love. I hope the story is good, too.

Now onto the book that was front and center in the featured photo: Confess by Colleen Hoover, because I’ve yet to read any of her books and this was the only one I could find. I have no idea what it’s about or if it’s any good, but, hey. I’ll give it a try. We also have Push by Sapphire, which I have put off reading because of the content, but I saw it and, again, figured why not. I’ll probably read it soon, since it’s so short.

And, lastly, we have Assassins by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins, the sixth book in the series. It’s not the last one in the series, but I have one through five already and they didn’t have the others, so eh.


And that was my library haul! I love the fall one, they always seem to have better books around than the spring one.

Now back to my book-buying ban… 😀
