I'm Bad at Saving Money! Haul

I used these two books for the cover, because they're the most mainstream ones :D

I’m mean I’m not that bad. Still, I realise that some of the books I bought weren’t exactly needed, but hey! It was only $25 total so I think I’m kind of in the clear? I bought these at a school fair, so I’m 99% sure that these are all second hand. However some of them literally look like they were bought from the store yesterday which is pretty rad. This was all for charity, so I feel a little less bad about spending! ( Was that proper English? It looks wrong to me. )

Pretty Girls by Karin Slaughter
I've heard so many good things about this book! A lot of people say it's very emotionally powerful, so I'm watching out for that. 

3 Percy Jackson Books by Rick Riordan
I mean, I haven't read any of them – so I figure that I should probably start yeah? I have already have 5 of his other books in HARDBACk, that I haven't read yet though. 

Bone Gap by Laura Ruby
This has been on my tbr list forever. Also, bees! I love bees. 

Mosquitoland by David Arnold
Hm, is this my kind of thing? Not really sure. A great deal of people have said that he's trying to be the next John Green, and I'm not really that big of a fan of John Green ( I just mean I haven't read any of his books, I have watched some of his movies though ).

Isle of the Lost: Descendants by Melissa de la Cruz
Um, I mean the cover was super pretty and it looked brand new soooo.

The Lover's Dictionary by David Levithan
This was recommended to me ( not personally, but you get the gist ) by one of my favourite youtubers! I think the premise is kind of adorable.

The 48 Laws of Power by Robert Greene
This book sounded interesting, although I'm am questioning wether or not I should have bought this. It's really old, which normally would be fine, but the some of the words are faded! Heres to hoping that I can read all of it aha :D

Binge by Tyler Oakley
I'm not the biggest fan of Tyler Oakley to be completely honest. He seems a little rude (there's a fine line between being sassy, and being flat out rude).

Love Tanya by Tanya Burr
Yo, I'm in love with her cookie recipe. They're literally the only things that I've made / baked more than twice.

Selp-Helf by Miranda Sings
I don't even watch her videos, but hey! I'm on a roll with all these youtube books.

I haven't heard very good things about this book, but it fit my famous people theme, so into the bag it went!

Hollow City by Ransom Riggs
I've read the first book but ... it was kind of meh. I love the old photos though! 

Deep Blue by Jennifer Donnelly
Not entirely sure why I bought this, other than the cover was pretty. I like mermaids, but the reviews for this are kind of ugh.

I bought another one, but I only got it because I was pressured by the sales lady, so I gave it to my dad. I'm pretty sure that it was something about tractors?

  1. I've been dying to read The Lover's Dictionary!! I love David Levithan. I can't seem to find it anywhere though 😣


    1. Yes! It's such an interesting book. I've been putting off reading it because my love life's a little iffy right now, but I've flicked through it a little bit and it looks amazing!

  2. haha there are so many other terrible things that you could spend your money on! I find that most of my paycheck goes to eating out which I need to curb...so I can spend more money on books!

    1. Ooh yeah, eating out can definitely put a dent in the bank. Quite a lot of my money goes on that as well! I just don't register that I've spent money until afterwards *sighs*

  3. HAH! The title makes me laugh. It's truly the story of my life, recently I got Carve the Mark from target and are way pumped to start it. Hopefully I'll have a good time reading it. Have an AMAZING DAY. Good post.

    1. I'm glad you liked the title haha :D It happens way too often for me! Hope you have an amazing day as well, thanks for popping by Jared x

  4. That many books for $25 IS A BARGAIN! So don't feel bad haha. You deserve these books. I did end up liking Mosquitoland, and didn't think it was too much like John Green (though I can kind of see it a bit). I've also always wanted to read Bone Gap, so I hope you enjoy it :)

  5. This is such a lovely haul! I've been terrible with money in Feb too and bought wayyyy too many books considering that my TBR pile resembles the Leaning Tower of Pisa!
