Is October really almost over!? It’s been a crazy month for me and even though I didn’t get most of the books that I really wanted to get this month, I was still able to get some good ones. I also got amazing deals on all of these books and really didn’t spend much money on them all. That’s a good thing, because this month has been so tough on me as far as money goes, so so tough. Anyway, I’ll get right into the books and also talk a little bit about them. The post will be divided into different sections of where I got the books from; stores, random, e-book, etc.
Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness
The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan
Diary of a Haunting by M. Verano
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
My Heart and Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga
Falling into Place by Amy Zhang
Carry On and The Rest of Us Just Live Here I got for sale on pre-order and they were $8-10. The Hunger Games (foil edition) I got for $2 on Amazon! I don’t own a physical copy of the Hunger Games, so I was excited to get one for $2. I still want the hardcover though, because my Catching Fire and Mockingjay are hardcover. The Sword of Summer I refused to leave Target without it and technically my older sister bought it for me; she said I didn’t have to pay her back! Diary of a Haunting, I saw at Target and wanted it for my October TBR which I never got to, sadly. I actually bought it at the very end of September, but since I had already done my September book haul, I decided to save it for this one. Falling into Place and My Heart and Other Black Holes were on Book Outlet, so those were of course cheap; I think it was $15 including shipping for them both.
Awesome Carry On swag that I got for pre-ordering! 🙂
Tattoos, balloon, pin, I’m assuming those packets are wipes
And a book cover that you can color yourself and put on your book!
Things Not Seen by Andrew Clements
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Life of Pi by Yann Martel
Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton
The Sweetest Spell by Suzanne Selfors
The Giver by Lois Lowry
The Wednesday Wars by Gary D. Schmidt
These are the ones that I got from Goodwill for $0.99-1.99 each, except Jurassic Park I was given. I tried to listen to the Life of Pi audiobook, but I just could not do it. I did not like the narrator at all, but I seen the book and decided to give it another chance. I’ve never read Pride and Prejudice and one day I want to, so I grabbed it. I had The Wednesday Wars on my TBR, so when I seen it I decided to get it. I’ve never heard of Things Not Seen and The Sweetest Spell before, but they sounded good so I picked those up as well. The Giver I own in e-book, but I decided to pick it up from Goodwill when I seen it. I love that series so much!
Wolf by Wolf is an ARC that I won from the Novl, which I am excited to read and excited that I won it! I also won The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto ARC on Goodreads, which I am excited about. Mitch Albom is one of my favorite authors and I was so excited about this book, so winning it was amazing! A Madness So Discreet I received in my October OwlCrate! I added it to my TBR this week, so getting it in my OwlCrate was awesome!
My October OwlCrate contents:
The theme for October was “spooky”.
A Madness So Discreet book, poster, and letter from the author.
Halloween themed bookmarks from Craftedvan (witch & skeleton)
Edgar Allan Poe zipper pouch from Out of Print Clothing
Scented beads & bookmark from Adventure Scents
Sugar skull erasers
I am really excited about this month’s OwlCrate and everything inside! I have to say my favorite things are the Craftedvan bookmarks (which I zoomed, so you can see them better) and the Edgar Allan Poe pouch! Obviously the book as well. It was nice that I wasn’t spoiled this time! I tried to stay away from everything OwlCrate this month on social media, so I didn’t accidentally see what was inside again! Next month’s theme is Myths & Legends!
You know I am all about those Amazon e-book deals and I can rarely ever pass one up! So of course I have tons to share with you. I got these all when they were on sale for $0.99-2.99! I am super stoked about all of them, because they are books that I really want to read! I did get Ted Saves the World for free though; thanks to Ben’s free book Friday videos on booktube! He always shows really awesome books that are free that week, month, etc. Onto the e-books!
I’ve been really wanting to read all of these e-books, so getting them on sale was a big plus! Even though it looks like a lot, I really didn’t spend that much money. It’s all about the deals! I love getting so many things and not spending a whole lot to get them. That is always amazing, so that is why it’s awesome checking out what kind of deals are going on! There were a TON of new releases that came out this month that I sadly wasn’t able to buy that I really wanted, but I am happy with all of the ones I was able to get. I wish I had all the money in the world for books, sadly that is not the case.
Have you read any of these books? What new books did you get this month? Let me know and link me to your posts down below! 🙂 I am off to work and I hope that you had a great weekend and have a great day today! ❤
