Hello, friends! Are you all ready for the weekend? This week was fairly low-stress for me, but it was still busy as usual. I’m looking forward to kicking back and catching up on some reading this weekend.
Today I have a book haul that I strictly purchased for myself. Two of these books I’ve had on my list for some time. The others were either books I found on blogs or those that were recommended to me. These were all purchased in-store at Barnes and Noble.
Hello, friends! Hopefully everyone is having a good week so far. I have a couple book hauls to share this week. This young adult book haul is a group of books for my oldest daughter and me to read. One is a middle-grade book I sneaked in for my other kids. Lets get to it.
Hey, friends! It’s Friday, and I couldn’t be happier. I had a good week, but it was quite stressful. I’m looking forward to resting and reading this weekend. How did your week go? Did you read any good books?
Today I thought I’d share a quick video of our book haul for this week. This was mainly a book haul for my kids, but I did manage to squeeze two books in for myself as well. I ordered from Barnes & Noble on Wednesday, and the box came on Thursday, which is faster than Amazon! With that said, this is only part of the order. I’ll do another post next week with the books that are still on the way. I’m trying to spend our book money with booksellers other than Amazon whenever possible. It’s also a guarantee that my books will ship in a box and not a bubble mailer.
Hope you enjoy ❤
The Girl Who Fell Beneath the Sea by Axie Oh
Deadly storms have ravaged Mina’s homeland for generations. Floods sweep away entire villages, while bloody wars are waged over the few remaining resources. Her people believe the Sea God, once their protector, now curses them with death and despair. In an attempt to appease him, each year a beautiful maiden is thrown into the sea to serve as the Sea God’s bride, in the hopes that one day the “true bride” will be chosen and end the suffering.
Many believe that Shim Cheong, the most beautiful girl in the village—and the beloved of Mina’s older brother Joon—may be the legendary true bride. But on the night Cheong is to be sacrificed, Joon follows Cheong out to sea, even knowing that to interfere is a death sentence. To save her brother, Mina throws herself into the water in Cheong’s stead.
Hello everyone! Today I’ll be featuring our latest book haul. I don’t purchase book hauls that often, but every now and then it’s something I like to do for the kids. It’s always such a wonderful surprise for the kids, and many of these I’ll enjoy right along with them. These are mostly middle-grade books, and some of these are for summer reading. You can find these on Goodreads by clicking the image. Let’s see what we have!
