Birthday Book Haul

My boyfriend took me book shopping for my birthday and I picked up 16 books, all at a great price. Seriously, the best present a booklover could get. šŸ˜€ And even better Chapters was having a plum points bonus promotion going on, where if you bought 5 books you would get 4,500 points which equals to $10 . I now have $50 in points and I’m am close to the $100 mark so, I am not going to redeem them just yet. Anyways lets get on to the books…

Jane Eyre By Charlotte Bronte

The Ambassadors and The Turn of the Shrew Henry James                       

Birthday Book Haul

They had a small selection of these Arcturus classic editions at 3 for 10. I was happy to see that they still had a few of these floating around because I like how each of the books are similar with the circle, colourful and the graphics.

Persuasion by Jane Austen, Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde and Beast of No Nation by Uzodinma Iweala

Birthday Book Haul

Again these three books were part of the 3 for 10 and I figured this was a good way to get 5 book for cheap to get my plum points.

Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein                    

This is the second book in the Code Name Verity Duology. I haven’t read the first one yet but this was only $6 and in hardcover so I had to pick it up and I will eventually read it. This series is a historical fiction set during WWII and follows a girl fighter pilot.

Birthday Book Haul

The Conspiracy of Us by Maggie Hall                  

I heard great things about The Conspiracy of Us and found it for only $6. It is about a secret society called the circle who are the world elite. Which is giving me Illuminate vibes. Sounds like it will be an interesting read.

Daughter of Deep Silence by Carrie Ryan           

Birthday Book Haul

This is a book about revenge and was cheap, so thought I would pick it up. It is about a girl who wants to get revenge for the death of her family.

Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare                 

Birthday Book Haul

This was on sale for 40% off and even thought I haven’t read Lady Midnight, I know that I will eventually buy it and so figured might as well buy Lord of Shadows while it is on sale.

The Alice Network by Kate Quinn                       

For some reason this book reminds me of The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah and that is the main reason why I picked it up.

The Alice Network is a dual time line set in WWI and WWII and is about a female spy who is part of the Alice Network in France. I plan on reading this very soon.

Birthday Book Haul

A Dangerous Inheritance by Alison Weir               

Found this book in the bargain section for $8 and is about Katherine Grey and Kate Plantagenet and also about the mystery sounding the two Prince’s in the tower. I love reading about the Tudor history and hope this will be a great read.

The Winter People by Jennifer McMahon                  

I’ve really been in to reading thrillers lately and I found a couple in the bargain section. Which is pretty much where I do all my book shopping.

The Winter People is about Ruthie and her family as they just moved to an old farmhouse in Vermont. The farmhouse has a tragic past because in 1908 Sara Harrison Shea was found dead on the property. After Ruhie’s mom goes missing she finds Sara’s diary and gets sucked into the mystery of Sara’s death.

Birthday Book Haul

All Is Not Forgotten by Wendy Walker                        

A psychological thriller about a girl, Jenny Kramer, who gets attacked at a party but can’t remember anything after she is given a drug that erases the memory of the attack. This sounds interesting and is going to be made into a movie.

Keep You Close by Lucie Whitehouse                        

Keep You Close is also a psychological thriller that follows Rowan Winter as she tries to uncover the truth behind her friend, Marianne Glass’s, death.

Birthday Book Haul

Every Last Lie by Mary Kubica                                    

This is the latest novel from Mary Kubica and I really enjoyed The Good Girl and Don’t You Cry by her and can’t wait to read this one.

Clara Solberg’s daughter survives a car crash that killed her husband and is believed to be a accident but her daughter begins having night terrors that leads her to think it might not have been an accident.

There you have it all the 16 of the books I picked out for my birthday gift.

  1. Nice haul! Wish my boyfriend would let me go loose in a bookshop for my birthday, but that’s plain wishful thinking. He thinks I’m buying way too many books as it is, haha. -Which is true, but hey.. If I don’t have to pay them, that would be an added bonus!-
    Enjoy reading them!
    And I’m definitely saying to buy Lady Midnight ASAP because LoS is amazing [up until now – I haven’t finished it yet, haha]. Even though I’ve heard the end of LoS is messed up in that way that we have to wait until 2019 for the sequel.. Torturous!

    1. Thanks! šŸ˜Š Yeah my boyfriend thinks I have and buy too many books too but he still encourages me to buy more. Lol
      I think I will buy Lady Midnight soon because I want to get back into the shadow hunter world. But that sucks to wait till 2019 to continue on with the series. Soo long.

      1. Mine doesn’t encourage me at all, on the contrary. He’s the first one to start rolling his eyes as soon as I spot a bookstore, haha.

        I totally get you! I want to go back into that world as well, but that long wait just puts me off a bit..
