I heard about the Green Valley Book Fair a few years ago and finally decided it was time for a trip!…
Between Black Friday Deals and Christmas sales here are the last few books I got to round out 2016
I love subscription services and since I had a few dollars I told myself it was time to treat yo self and sign up for a bookish one. I weighed a lot of options, but decided to go with The Fresh Fiction Box. For 24.95 you get a”box of great reads, print and digital, and author keepsakes”. I loved it !
The inside of this box was so festive ! It was filled with colorful confetti and lots of postcards for upcoming adult and NA books. There was also some candy and a little pumpkin stress ball.
Better World Books is like the Toms of the book world. With every used book you purchase a book is donated to someone in need. When I first heard about Better World Books I was a little hesitant because I didn’t know what shape the books would be in but they are usually pretty good.
These were all on sale ! The deal was for 40% off 5 or more of the bargain bin books. While I meant to do the minimum of 5…I ended up…. with 11
Last week I sat down and opened up my YA Quarterly Box from Book Riot.com. This box featured a set of YA contemporaries with female leads as well as some fun bookish accessories. I’ll reveal the items below and you can watch me unbox it here
Chasing Shadows Swati Avasthi
I did a quick flip through this book sand it looks like a combination of prose and images. I’ve been wanting to get into graphic and visual novels so this might be a great combo for me.
Everything Leads To You by Nina LaCour
First of all I like the lightness on this cover and the font is very dynamic. I’ve seen the cover online but it looks better IRL. In this novel a girl gets carried away by a mysterious letter writer.
A Sense of The Infinite by Hilary T Smith
Released earlier this summer this book is about a girl dealing with the tough stuff in life. It’s been a while since I’ve jumped into the contemporary boat, so this could fill that gap.
- LED Clip Light by French Bull (I’m totally clipping this to my Kindle for nighttime reading)
- 50 Assorted Library Cards by Knot and Bow
- Hilary T. Smith Signed Book Plate
- A Sense Of The Infinite Postcards (3)
Once again, I was happy that these were books I wasn’t overly familiar with and didn’t already own. I see myself using the library cards as bookmarks or to take notes for reviews. Over all this box appealed to me more than the last box.
