I’ve mentioned a few times that I was going to have a book haul post coming up, so I decided to just do it in two parts, because this post is going to be pretty big as it is. I bought 23 books over the last week or two. Twenty-three books is kind of insane, but in my part two post in the next day or two, you will see why I couldn’t help but buy more! I am impatiently waiting for those ten books to be delivered, ahhhh! lol. Anyway, all will be linked to Goodreads, so let’s get started!
The following 13 books are the books that I got from Barnes & Noble (online and then a trip to the actual store) and from Goodwill. My boyfriend actually bought me four books when we went to Barnes & Noble, so that was really nice of him! I’m glad he supports my addiction….lol! He told me he will tell me when it becomes a problem, lol.
The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom
The Borrower by Rebecca Makkai
Don’t Turn Around by Michelle Gagnon
Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
Green River Rising by Tim Willocks
I was so excited that I found Catching Fire and Mockingjay at Goodwill. I own the e-books of the series, but I really want to own the physical copies too. They were only $1.50 each!! Now I just need to get The Hunger Games and everything will be right in the world….well right with my bookshelf anyway! The Five People You Meet in Heaven is the only Mitch Albom book that I didn’t own (physical or e-book), so I couldn’t pass it up and I love the book so much!
BARNES & NOBLE ONLINE:
Attachments by Rainbow Rowell
Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
My Barnes & Noble online purchase was only supposed to be for Simon vs., but if I added another book I would get free shipping, lol! I also had a coupon code, so I added another. It’s to the point that I have to justify and reason, haha. I am excited about all of these and I am sure you have already seen my excitement over Simon vs. I’ve been wanting to buy Attachments, but I could never find it in any of the stores I have gone to, so I had to order it.
BARNES & NOBLE STORE:
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
Asylum by Madeleine Roux
Dream a Little Dream by Kerstin Gier
All the Rage by Courtney Summers
These are the books that my boyfriend bought me. I picked them out and he paid for them. 🙂 I am excited about all of these, because I really want to read them. Although, I guess I really want to read all of the books on my TBR, lol. These are the books that I actually went into the store looking to get. I added Asylum, because I’ve been wanting to read it and both Targets I go to only have the sequel! So I just added it to the three.
So this was part one of the book haul and part two will come sometime in the next day or two. I can’t wait to get started on reading these books! I decided to redo my book jar and only include the books that I own, that way I can start reading more of those! I am hoping it also helps with not buying a lot of books again or as often….even though I am sure it won’t help. lol! I can try and hope though, right?
Here are some of my other posts from this week in case you missed them or want to check them out!
- Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda – A book published this year.
- Friday Finds #10 & Kindle E-Books – Books that I added to my TBR this week.
I have a date with Throne of Glass now. I am excited to get back into it, because I have a feeling that it will start picking up. Here is a picture of the sunset from yesterday on the way home from Barnes & Noble. It’s a perfect way to end this post. ❤ bye!

Yay! Mitch Albom’s The Five People You Meet in Heaven is brilliant and so is Rainbow’s Attachments. Have fun reading ! 😀
I love Mitch Albom’s books! I always buy his books no matter what. I’m excited that he has a new book coming out in November! 🙂
Awesome haul and great shots too. I like the synopsis of The Borrower so I’ll add that to my TBR pile.
Thank you! 🙂 I’m glad you added The Borrower to your TBR. It sounds like such a good read.
