June'15 Book Haul!!!

Hi guys, so I'm finally back with a book haul after like 4 months? I bought a lot of books from this book sale which was held on the first week of June. I also bought some books off from the Book Depository and it only arrived on the second week of June. So are you guys excited to know what I got? If you are, then continue to read! :D However, this post is going to be really long! So do prepare some snacks before you start reading!

So you may have known that I went to this 3-day book sale and they had this mega book sale, and I do mean MEGA book sale.
The books there are all 5 for $20, what even?! Each book only cost $4!
They are brand new, but because they weren't place onto a shelf, people just treat them without any love and care, the books turned out to be a little wrecked, some were destroyed so badly that they don't even look like books anymore.
I tried my best to find some books that looks brand new, and even though the books I picked out are not in their tip top conditions, at least they still look like books.

So let's go through the books in a timeline on how I managed to find the books.

Firstly, I was walking through the adult section, looking lost as the place was huge and there weren't any signs to signal me to the young adult section. So there I am, lingering around the middle part of the room where all the adult books are located.
I just started looking around and I saw some Sophie Kinsella's books. I have been wanting to try and read Sophie Kinsella's books as I just heard so many good things about her books and it just intrigues me to want to read her books!
I was walking around and I saw I've Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella just chillaxing inside one of this box waiting for me and I just have to go and pick this book up!
As I continue to walk around, I wanted to get her Shopaholic's series but couldn't find the first book and just decided to walk around and see what I could find. I was pretty disheartened at that time because I couldn't find any book that I wanted. That was when I saw another Sophie Kinsella's book, and that is Remember Me? The plot sounds really interesting so I thought, why not pick this book up as well!

Next, I finally found the Young Adult section and I went straight ahead to look through the books. I wasn't able to find anything at first and just lurked around the area, until I landed my eyes on some Tahereh Mafi's books! Yes you got it, the Shatter Me trilogy! Whoop Whoop!!!
So I got Unravel Me, Unite Me and Ignite Me! I already got the first book "Shatter Me" last year at another book sale. I immediately grabbed those and continued walking around.

Next I saw Clipped Wings by Helena Hunting and my hands were immediately on the book and putting it into the pile of books in my hands. I heard so many good things about this book, and I have read the first chapter on my phone, and oh my is this book so good! So of course I had to grab this book immediately as soon as I see it!

Then I tried finding some other books, trying to find the sequel to Clipped Wings. Sadly, I couldn't. I walked to the adult section and my hands were tiring me, so headed to the basket area and grabbed one before heading back to the area that I was at earlier. As I was walking, something caught my attention. It's the sequel to the previous I got, Inked Armor by Helena Hunting! I nearly squealed in joy! Thus this book immediately went into my basket of books as well.

I said a basket and you might think, "Woah! She got so many books!" But really, it's only 7 books inside the basket. I walked for 2 hours inside that room of books, yes, I reached at about 1pm and only got out at 3pm, I tried finding some other books, picked one but put it back in the end because I saw some mixed reviews and didn't want to buy a book that I wasn't sure if I would read it or not.

So in total for this book haul, I only paid $36 for 7 books, which is so rare! It's really a mega sale! I'm so glad I went there to look around!

Next, we're moving onto the book that I got at the Book Depository!
So there are 3 books that I got, not a lot but still, I bought some books. They was suppose to come last month, but I think I messed up the mailing address and all those 'fun' stuff happened, I had to reorder the books again and they only arrived this month.

So the first book that I got is really hype up since last month. I'm sure you guys can guess it, the book is A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J.Maas! Whoop Whoop! I have been obsessed with the story 'Beauty and the Beast' lately, so without a doubt, I knew I had to get this book as well, although I haven't read any of the books by Sarah J.Maas... YET! Also, I received two of this book because the first one got damaged (slightly), so that's why! :D

So the next book I got is The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson! I was so intrigued by the synopsis and I just had to get it! Plus, I bought this book in HARDCOVER!! Expensive, but it was really worth it! It looks so beautiful on my shelf! I can't wait to read this book!

And last but not least, the book I got was The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black! Again, I was intrigued by the synopsis in this book so I just bought it and decided to see how good it is for myself! Also, I got this book in hardcover as well! However, I wasn't sure why but the height of this book is shorter than all my other hardcovers although they are all hardcovers. Does it make any sense? It's so weird, isn't all the hardcovers suppose to be of the same height? Oh well, it is still beautiful!

And I still have one last book haul that was an unexpected purchase. Well I kind of already planned to buy it for a really long time but it wasn't because of a mega sale or a purchase from the Book Depository. I was just at my local bookstore strolling and I happened to see this book just lazing on the bookshelf and waving at me so I just had to get it!

And this book is Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson! I started jumping around when I saw that my bookstore had this book! I heard so many great things about this book so I knew I just had to get it!

And lastly, I got a box set. This is actually a duology, and that is the Just One Day collection by Gayle Forman! I know that Christine over on Booktube really love Gayle Forman's books, so I knew I just had to buy this collection to see for myself how good this book really is! The books inside the collection are Just One Day, Just One Year and Just One Night!
