July Book Haul: Love a Library Book Sale
Hey guys, it’s almost the end of June, which means it’s time for a book haul! I actually went into this month thinking I wouldn’t get any new books because I already have plenty. But, I ended up getting 20 used books for a great price at Half Price Books. I love used books, especially used paperbacks. So, let’s dive into the books I got!
The Books I Got at Half Price Books
The first book is “The Left Hand of Darkness” by Ursula K Le Guin. It’s a popular sci-fi book, and although I don’t know much about it, I’ve enjoyed other books by this author.
Next, I picked up two books by Jane Austen – “Sense and Sensibility” and “Love and Friendship and Other Early Works”. I collect classic books, and I prefer to find them used and in paperback. I already read “Sense and Sensibility” and loved it. The movie cover version of this book holds a special place in my heart, as it was one of my favorite movies as a teenager.
I also picked up two fantasy books – “For the Wolf”, which I thought was a Red Riding Hood retelling but turns out to be a Beauty and the Beast retelling, and “The Witch’s Heart” which is a Norse fantasy or mythology retelling. I don’t know much about these books, but I’m excited to dive into them.
The Library Book Sale Haul
Last weekend, I went to a library book sale and came home with a huge bag of books. The sale didn’t have a lot of fiction, but I still found some great books. Here are a few of them:
I grabbed “The Hunger Games” by Suzanne Collins, a book I read years ago but didn’t enjoy. I want to give it another chance. I also got “Will Grayson, Will Grayson” by John Green and David Levithan, a book I’m curious about since I like some of their other works.
I also picked up “A Monster Calls” by Patrick Ness, a middle-grade novel with beautiful illustrations. I’ve seen the movie and enjoyed it, so I thought I should give the book a try.
I found a vintage copy of “Shirley” by Charlotte Bronte, a classic I haven’t read in years. It’s an old edition, possibly from 1891, making it quite special.
I grabbed “The Art of War” by Sun Tzu, a timeless classic. I also found “The Inferno” by Dante, a book I don’t know much about but was excited to add to my collection.
Lastly, I picked up “Reading Lolita in Tehran” by Azar Nafisi, a memoir about books and literature in Iran. I’m currently reading another book by the same author and enjoying it, so I wanted to explore more of her work.
That’s all for this book haul! I had some issues filming this video, but I hope you enjoyed hearing about the books I got. Let me know if you’ve read any of these and what you think of them. Thanks for watching, and until next time!
