Seeing as I am just a beginner blogger, buying books is something I try to do wisely. I don’t buy books that I don’t plan on reading soon because I do also have other bills to pay. I wish I could spend all of my money on books, but sadly that just isn’t the case. However, that does make it even more exciting when I splurge and buy a whole bunch of books.
These past few days all of my new books have been coming in and I wanted to share my new baby’s with all of you!
Disclaimer: Since I do live in Europe it is sometimes harder, and more expensive, for me to get English books. I will be adding where I got all of these books and how much I paid for them, I’m sure I’m not the only one in Europe looking for cheap books! However I am not sponsored by any of these sites, these are just my personal preferences.
First, my package from amazon.co.uk came in. This is a great site to find cheap books if the shipping to your country isn’t too high. For my I believe it was 2 pounds, so that wasn’t too bad. I had ordered the Siren by Kiera Cass and City of Glass by Cassandra Clare. I know it’s terrible that I haven’t read this series yet, but it’s just so daunting! But I will be getting to it soon, I promise.
The same day a package from bol.com came in the mail. This is a website that sells all sorts of thing, including books, though not very cheaply I’m afraid. However, I’m pretty sure it only delivers to the Netherlands and Belgium. Luckily, I bought a two books there during a sale period so I was able to get the Jewel by Amy Ewing and the Crown by Kiera Cass for pretty cheap. The Crown was a pre-order but that means I will be getting it in the mail the day it becomes available, excitingg!
Then I had to wait two days before my next two packages came in the mail. But luckily I received those today, so I can finally open them. The first package I received today was from bookdepository.com, which is a great site especially for people who live outside the US or UK. I am always able to get books at a discount and they use free international shipping, win win! The book I got from them was Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. I have heard amazing things about this book and I just can’t wait to start reading it!
The last package I got was also a discounted package from bol.com. This time, I was able to get 2 + 1 free book, which is pretty awesome because the 2 books I got were also priced down. I got The Cuckoo’s Calling and the Silkworm by Robert Galbraith, a.k.a. J.K. Rowling. I also got An Abundance of Katherines by John Green.
Obviously, I can’t wait to start reading these books and will be posting my reviews once I have finished them. If you’re interested in what books I am reading right now and my progress, check out my goodreads or my twitter accounts.
