So last week I discovered Book Outlet and now my life has been changed. They sell books, hardcover and paperback, for around $2-$7.
It’s cheaper than my local thrift book store with a much bigger selection.
So obviously, I had to take this opportunity to buy a shitload of new books.
- I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson
I’m really excited for this one. It’ll probably be one of the first I read out of these.
2. How Zoe (mostly) Made Her Dreams Come True by Sarah Strohmeyer
This book looks so cute that I had to get a copy
3. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
I really want to see if this lives up to all the praise.
4. The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan
This book looks so scary but exciting
5. Hungry by H.A. Swain
The idea for this book is just so crazy that it might work. Key word: MIGHT. I’ve seen reviews go both ways for it.
- Sweet by Emmy Laybourne
This has been on my TBR list since it came out. I love cruise ships and books for some reason.
7. The Summer of Chasing Mermaids by Sarah Ockler
THE COVER. That’s what drew me to this book, also the fact that Sarah Ockler is an amazing writer. I love the little mermaid and this is a modern retelling of it. I’m excited to see where it goes.
8. We All Looked Up by Tommy Wallach
Story time: last week I was at Barnes and Noble and I saw this book. I spent twenty minutes deciding whether to buy this or Passenger. I went with Passenger and am extremely happy because I got this for $3 compared to $18.
- Last Year’s Mistake by Gina Cicconia
This looks like a fun, quick read. The condition it came in was good. The edges of the dust cover are a little bit bent but that’s from being in the box.
10. The Art of Secrets by James Klise
I love the mystery aspect of this book and I’m excited to see what happens. Okay, I think I’ve used the word “excited” like a million times in this. As you can tell, I’m extremely excited about my new books. I got the torn/scrath copy of this book but it’s in pretty much perfect condition.
In total, I spent $48 with shipping and saved $107. That means I got each book for a median of less than five dollars. Only 3 books out of 10 were used and 6 out of 10 were hardcovers.
I completely recommend this website if you’re ever looking for cheap books. A lot of these are even cheaper than Kindle versions. Have you ever ordered from Book Outlet?
(Note: I was not endorsed in any way for this post, I’m just enthusiastic about cheap books)
(Note #2: Pictures of each book will be up on this post soon once my computer starts actually downloading them)
