I recently went to Savers, which is an awesome thrift shop that sells books for cheap prices! I got these 9 books for 23 dollars! That’s pretty amazing, especially for such well-known and high quality books.
- The Vile Village (A Series of Unfortunate Events #7) by Lemony Snicket
I have been looking to complete this series for the longest time. I have the first six books, now the first seven, and I really am looking forward to marathon this series when I have all 13 (or is it 12?) books in this series.
This book is obviously a continuation to the lives of Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire. They are 3 siblings who (I think) hop around to different houses and families because their parents died.
Hopefully I’ll be able to find the rest of the books at Savers.
I only purchased this book because I hate having incomplete books on my shelf! I have the first and last books in this series, and I just needed the second one. I don’t think I’ll be reading this series anytime soon.
Daunted by the singular sexual tastes and dark secrets of the beautiful, tormented young entrepreneur Christian Grey, Anastasia Steele has broken off their relationship to start a new career with a Seattle publishing house.
But desire for Christian still dominates her every waking thought, and when he proposes a new arrangement, Anastasia cannot resist. They rekindle their searing sensual affair, and Anastasia learns more about the harrowing past of her damaged, driven, and demanding Fifty Shades.
While Christian wrestles with his inner demons, Anastasia must confront her anger and envy of the women who came before her and make the most important decision of her life.
Although it’s such a popular series, I won’t be reading these until I’m out of my house because I’m pretty sure my mom would kill me she caught me reading these books.
I have been on the lookout for this book for such a long time because of how hyped up it is on BookTube. Of course, I won’t be reading this until I have the rest of the books.
This book takes place during the Holocaust. Tatiana and her sister Dasher share a room with their brother and parents, but when Hitler’s armies attack Russia, their whole world is turned upside down.
However, the situation is not all bas, because Tatiana meets Alexander who is an officer in the Red Army. They are drawn to one another, but Alexander carries a secret that can tear Tatiana’s family apart.
This book seems action-packed but still ha that romance element that I completely love.
Call my bias, but I will buy any book that is a New York Times Bestseller or has a huge award plastered on the front cover. But, this book did sound interesting so I just had to buy it.
On October 11th, 1943, a British spy plane crashes in Nazi-occupied France. Its pilot and passenger are best friends. One of the girls has a chance at survival. The other has lost the game before it’s barely begun.
When “Verity” is arrested by the Gestapo, she’s sure she doesn’t stand a chance. As a secret agent captured in enemy territory, she’s living a spy’s worst nightmare. Her Nazi interrogators give her a simple choice: reveal her mission or face a grisly execution.
As she intricately weaves her confession, Verity uncovers her past, how she became friends with the pilot Maddie, and why she left Maddie in the wrecked fuselage of their plane. On each new scrap of paper, Verity battles for her life, confronting her views on courage, failure and her desperate hope to make it home. But will trading her secrets be enough to save her from the enemy?
This book not only sound interesting, but I feel like an important lesson is going to be taught by the end of the book. And I’m a sucker for lesson learning.
I am a huge Chuck Palahniuk fan because of his book, Fight Club. I had to pic this book up after seeing that he wrote it and because the cover is literally perfection. But, the summary also makes the book sound amazing.
This is about a fashion model who has everything anyone could want in life. But when a sudden “accident” leaves her disfigured and unable to speak, she goes from being the center of attention to an Invisible Monster.
Next, enter in Brandy Alexander, who teaches her that reinventing yourself means erasing your past and making up something even better than before. And that salvation hides in the last places you’ll ever want to look.
This sounds like such an inspiring book and I’m so excited to read it!
I was so surprised to find this book on a shelf at Savers because it’s wildly popular all over BookTube. I know about it from JesseTheReader, and since he loves it, I know I’ll love it.
This is about a boy, named Cullen Witter, who thinks he knows everything about his small town in Arkansas. But that all changes when his cousin overdoses, his town becomes absurdly obsessed with the alleged reappearance of an extinct woodpecker, and his sensitive, gifted fifteen-year-old brother, Gabriel, suddenly and inexplicably disappears.
As Cullen navigates a summer of finding and losing love, holding his fragile family together, and muddling his way into adulthood, a young, disillusioned missionary in Africa searches for meaning wherever he can find it. And when those two stories collide, a surprising and harrowing climax emerges that is tinged with melancholy and regret, comedy and absurdity, and above all, hope.
This sounds like such an inspiring book that the summary gives me goosebumps. I really hope the book lives up to my expectations.
I was so, so surprised to find this books at Savers. It’s very slim to find such popular books, and the same books within a series! Now, I’ll have to hunt for the second book because these are the first and third.
Exiled from her home, the enclosed city of Reverie, Aria knows her chances of surviving in the outer wasteland–known as The Death Shop–are slim. If the cannibals don’t get her, the violent, electrified energy storms will. She’s been taught that the very air she breathes can kill her. Then Aria meets an Outsider named Perry. He’s wild–a savage–and her only hope of staying alive.
A hunter for his tribe in a merciless landscape, Perry views Aria as sheltered and fragile–everything he would expect from a Dweller. But he needs Aria’s help too; she alone holds the key to his redemption. Opposites in nearly every way, Aria and Perry must accept each other to survive. Their unlikely alliance forges a bond that will determine the fate of all who live under the never sky.
I’m not giving a summary to the third book because I don’t want to spoil myself! I’ll be reading these once I find the second book, Through the Ever Night.
I am in love with this man’s writing. It is so beautiful and it really draws you in. I got this simply because I am in love with The Kite Runner.
Born a generation apart and with very different ideas about love and family, Mariam and Laila are two women brought jarringly together by war, by loss and by fate. As they endure the ever escalating dangers around them—in their home as well as in the streets of Kabul—they come to form a bond that makes them both sisters and mother-daughter to each other, and that will ultimately alter the course not just of their own lives but of the next generation. With heart-wrenching power and suspense, Hosseini shows how a woman’s love for her family can move her to shocking and heroic acts of self-sacrifice, and that in the end it is love, or even the memory of love, that is often the key to survival.
I’ll be reading this book next month for sure!
