Sunday Funday: Book Haul


This is the first book haul post I've done in a little over in a month and since then I've picked up quite a few books!  So, without further ado here we go:


I unexpectedly received the above books for free from a friend who thought I would appreciate them - The May Queen Murders by Sarah Jude, The Art of Not Breathing by Sarah Alexander, Tru & Nelle by G. NeriWant to Go Private? by Sarah Darer Littman, Does My Head Look Big in This? by Randa Abdel-Fattah, and Ten Things I Hate About Me by Randa Abdel-Fattah - all of which I'm looking forward to reading.  Thanks again!


These five I acquired at Goodwill on a sale day for a grand total of $3.50 - The Madness Underneath (Shades of London #1) by Maureen Johnson (I've been eyeing this series for awhile now, and I couldn't resist although I haven't read book one yet), Murder on Wheels (A Tourist Trap Mystery #6) by Lynn Cahoon (cozy mysteries aren't my usual go to, but this sounds like it could be fun - and surprisingly it's a new release), Alien Tango (Katherine "Kitty" Katt #2) by Gini Koch (just look at that cover!), Hidden (Northern Waste #2) by Eve Kenin (this sounds like it could be part of a great urban fantasy series), First Truth (Truth #1) by Dawn Cook aka Kim Harrison (potentially an awesome epic fantasy featuring dragons).


This past weekend a local country library system started up their book warehouse sale - some of their items have withdrawn from various libraries in the county including college libraries, as well as personal donations.  Anyway, I got a stunning deal on my spoils - only $3 total - The Girl is Murder (The Girl is Murder #1) by Kathryn Miller Haines, Sidekicks by Jack D. Ferraiolo, Poison Princess (The Arcana Chronicles #1) by Kresley Cole, Mystic City (Mystic City #1) by Theo Lawrence, Ghosts of Manhattan (The Ghost #1) by George Mann, Voodoo Dreams (Voodoo  #1) by Jewell Parker Rhodes, The Good Lord Bird by James McBride, Three Parts Dead (Craft Sequence #1) by Max Gladstone.  I'm looking forward to all of these, but I 'm most interested in diving into Max Gladstone's work.  


This past Tuesday I ended up taking a trip to Half Price Books to clear out a bunch of my old stuff.  Anyway, I was good and I only brought back two hardbacks both of which are in excellent condition - Bone Gap by Laura Ruby and The Way Through the Woods (Doctor Who: The New Series Adventures #45) by Una McCormack.

I can't say when I'll get to all of these, but it looks like I'll have a lot of good books waiting for me!

Thanks again for stopping by my blog!  Have you picked up any good books lately?
