First May Book Haul & Other Stuff.

Hi πŸ™‚

I have a book haul to share and I also decided that I would do a photo dump too! Everyone loves books and random pictures, right? πŸ˜‰ On Saturday I went to Goodwill with the boyfriend after he got off work and found a bunch of books. I was really excited about it and here are the books that I found.


Wings by Aprilynne Pike
I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore
Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins
Okay for Now by Gary D. Schmidt
The Almost Moon by Alice Sebold
Always Looking Up by Michael J. Fox
Death on the D-List by Nancy Grace
Matched by Ally Condie
Crossed by Ally Condie
Reached by Ally Condie
A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini
The Tenth Gift by Jane Johnson



Inside the Cage by Matt Whyman
Number the Stars by Lois Lowry

I think this was a pretty awesome and successful book haul! I found a ton of books and it was cool that I found the entire Matched series! I’ve been off and on about whether I wanted to read it or not, but since I seen it at Goodwill for cheap, I decided not to pass it up. The boyfriend chose Inside the Cage and Number the Stars. He said Number the Stars was one of his favorite books and this one was in better condition than the one we have now, so he wanted to get it. I am happy with all of the books that I got and can’t wait to eventually read them. Now I need to try not to buy as many more books this month, because I’ve already gotten all of these plus Magonia. I need to chill out with spending lots of money. Luckily these were from Goodwill, so it wasn’t as much money if I had gotten them brand new! πŸ™‚

Onto the random photo dump, because pictures are FUN! If you’re following me on Instagram (heyyitsashley) then you probably have seen these already.

The younger sister and I made cupcakes for our mom, older sister, and aunt for Mother’s Day. I thought they came out really good. SO MUCH PINK!


I got some new bookmarks from Craftedvan that I am so in love with! I drew Broken Hearts, Fences, and Other Things to Mend by Katie Finn from the book jar. I also started to read ’89 Walls by Katie Pierson that I got from Netgalley for review. I’ve only read one chapter so far in this one. I don’t normally read two books at a time (unless it’s an audiobook), but since ’89 Walls is an e-book, I also wanted to have a physical book to read too. I also just noticed they are both written by someone named Katie, lol. πŸ˜›


My furbabies: ColbyJack & Dax. My boyfriend also texted me on Mother’s Day since he was at work and told me Happy Mother’s Day because we have furbabies, lol.


Here are just a few random pictures I took. I saw a butterfly in my mom’s little butterfly garden she made and then the sky looked pretty the other day.


I hope you enjoyed this post and all of the pictures! In case you missed them, below are links to a couple recent posts that I have done.

Bye! ❀

  1. Good haul! Hex Hall was great. I really liked Sophie for her personality. She’s so sarcastic and funny, though, she had her moments. And I’m with you on Matched. I personally didn’t like the first book as I thought I would and even thought about not reading the rest of the series. But then I saw a copy of the second book at the thrift store for a cheap price, too so I just decided to buy it. I mean those books do look good on my shelf.haha

    I really want to read Magonia as well, though I want the copy. It’s too pretty not to have it on my shelf.

    • Thanks! I can’t wait to read Hex Hall, it sounds so good. I love sarcastic/funny characters. I definitely couldn’t pass up getting each book for $1.50. I do like the covers, so yes, they look good on my shelf too. Haha. I love pretty book covers!

  2. Great book haul! I personally didn’t like the Matched trilogy, hopefully you like it more than I did. Of course it was on sale and so I have the series on my Kobo. πŸ™‚ These all look like awesome books! ❀

  3. I LOVED the Matches Trilogy when I read it a couple years back! I think you’ll enjoy it, it’s an interesting dystopian novel with (what I believe) awesome romance.
