It was last June since my first Owl Post. It was that long! Anyway, who of you guys love book sales? There is a lot of cheap, good books to buy in a book sale. I swear, especially to my Filipino friends and readers (winks), I knocked myself out 2 weeks ago. I was in Book Sale in SM North Edsa and me and a friend of mine was supposed to buy books in honor of the last day of the National Book Store sale but I ended up buying ONLY one book in NBS. Heh!
So here's my book haul:
All of those books minus Insurgent, I got from Book Sale. We went crazy. We swept the whole shop, literally. We restacked shelves, we rearranged them. We were there for about 4-5 hours. If you're wondering how much I spent, it's less than P1500 ($35) and yes, including Insurgent. ;)
~Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte. Started on this one. All I can say is I hope I could have the time to sit down and focus on this.
~Life As We Know It and The Dead and The Gone by Susan Beth Pfeffer. Craving for an apocalyptic read? Both of these books might satisfy you.
~Atonement by Ian McEwan. I actually watched the movie first and my heart was crushed and broken into pieces. Sigh. Even thinking about makes me sad. *sniffs* I am not big on movie tie-in covers but it's on sale and the movie was actually good so I made an exception.
~Frankenstein by Mary Shelley. I've been pining for The Lost Girl by Sangu Mandana since forever. I've been stalkerish with all her interviews, too and she said Frankenstein was the inspiration of the novel. I was intrigued so I thought of reading it for myself.
~A Certain Slant of Light by Laura Whitcomb. I've read this before. I liked it and the cover was so gorgeously haunting.
~Kokology by Tadahiko Nagao and Isami Saito. This one isn't novel. Click the link to find out more.
~On The Brightside, I'm Now The Girlfriend of A Sex God by Louise Rennison. Georgia Nicholson is a delight to read. If you haven't tried this series yet, you're in for a treat. Oh! That semi-rhymed!
~Tiger's Quest by Colleen Houck. I squealed for this one. I'm not kidding, everybody in the shop looked at me like I'm on crack or something. I've been meaning to read this series and it's like a dream come true. My next mission is to find the first one in the series after that I can finally start.
That's it for my Owl Post. My balloon owl is still recovering from all that. How about you guys? What books did you haul this weekend? I love to see them so don't forget to leave your links on the comment section below.
