May Book Haul

I am kind of went overboard last month with all the book buying. I ended up buying over 40 books. Even worse, I ended up buying the same book twice. Luckily, most of the books I got were at the library book sale, but there were a few that were a bit expensive, but they are well worth it. One of the books. I actually pre-oredered as a christmas gift to myself, and it finally arrived this month. So let’s take a look at all the books that I got this month.

The hidden OracleThe first book that I got this month was Rick Riordan’s first book of his new series. I probably should pick this book up, and I am surprised that I have not. I guess I am a little afraid that I would not like this book as much as I did with the other series.

When I first got the book several months back. I was excieted and could not wait to get this book in my hands, now I am just staring at it on my shelf. Which in itself is a little weird. Maybe it is the idea of a god whining about being a mortal is nto on my to do list. The trailer for this book did not help either.

After that, I was not so cleaver in seperating where I got my book. I wanted to see how many books I could fit onto one shelf. Basically, I wanted to see what was the least amount of pictures I could take of my precious books. So here are all the pictures of the books that I have bought. Some I bought at the local library sale, there were some that I got at a school book fair, and two I got at our local book store. Bring on the pictures!

The two books that I got from the local book store were The Invention of Hugo Cabret and I am Princess X. This was one of my more expensive runs. I actually had to grab a physical copy of the book for work. It is taking us a lot longer to read the book than I expected. In the picture you see the library book, because I ended up swicthing the books before I could take this picture since the library book was due in a few days.

Then I got a total of six books at the school book fair. Those books were Echo, Molly’s Fire, The One and Only Ivan, Everyday Angel: New Beginnings, Ruby Lee and Me, and Silent Lotus. The rest of the books I got at the library book sale. Those book titles (without the authors) are…
