Uhhhmmm, so here’s another book haul! Nothing new. If you’ve been a follower of my blog for a long time now you already probably know that I have this book buying problem. I really love book sales so when there’s one near my place and if my schedule permits I always make sure to go visit one.
The first set of books are from local second hand bookstores. Thank you Book Sale and Chapters and Pages. 🙂 I was lucky enough to find a first edition copy of Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. I only bought it P50 ($1)! And despite not reading any of Agatha Christie’s books, I know her autobiography will come handy soon. 🙂
The second set came from National Bookstore, one of the leading bookstores here in the Philippines. They had this sale sometime around March. The books are ex-library hardbound copies in good condition and since I am near four National Bookstores, I guess you already know what I did next. 😉 I scoured all the branches near me and below is the result. I am really very happy with the books that I got because these titles are all in my wishlist!

Aside from The Red Queen and Glass Sword which I bought brand new for Victoria Aveyard’s book signing event last March, the last set are the books that I bought from online sellers. I’ve been meaning to get my hands on these books so when I saw them online I couldn’t pass it out. I tried browsing Wonderstruck by Brian Selznick after I bought because I bought it on a whim without actually no idea what it is about. I got curious because it was so thick and lo and behold it’s like 70% illustrations! I am really excited to start it soon. I am also excited with A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas because I did enjoy her Throne of Glass.
