HAUL: April 2014 (awesomebooks.com)

All books

A few weeks ago I decided that I needed some new books, but I didn’t really have the money to buy them. Until I heard of the website AwesomeBooks, who sell both new and used books. And the used books are pretty cheap. I did some research to the quality of the used books, and I found out that overall the used books from this website have a pretty decent quality. So I went for it. I ordered 7 books, and I only had to pay €21,73 including delivery, and I got a 10% discount since it was my first order at AwesoneBooks. So all in all I thought that was a pretty good deal. In let you know in what condition my used books arrived! Next to these 7 books, I also bought 2 books from the Book Depository, one of which I had pre-ordered. I am really happy with all my purchases and I can’t wait to start reading them all!

If I Stay by Gayle Forman

Since I absolutely loved Gayle Forman’s Just One Day and Just One Year, I decided to buy another one of her books. If I Stay is a very short book, and when I opened the package I was surprised by how small it is. I somehow expected it to be a longer story, but this book only has 210 pages. I bought the hardcover edition of this book, and it came in really good condition. The dust jacket looks almost perfect, except for a sticker on the back of which I’m sure I can get it off. So yay, I’m happy with this book. I already started reading it yesterday. I am about 30 pages in, and so far it is really interesting. And of course beautifully written, but I expected nothing less from Gayle Forman.

Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

And this is another book that I bought based on previous good experiences with the author. I absolutely loved the Delirium trilogy by Lauren Oliver, so I was very curious if I would like her other books as well. I have really loved the Young Adult contemporary books I’ve been reading lately, so I think I will like this one as well! The blurb on Goodreads says that it is a story that provokes questions about love, death, and how one person’s life can affect so many others. This really sounds like something I would enjoy! This paperback edition arrived in almost perfect condition!

Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell

This book is something really different from what I have been reading lately, but I feel like I need to broaden my horizon a little. I have heard many great things about this book and I think the premise sounds really interesting. I don’t know if it is something I would enjoy but I am really curious to find out. The paperback edition that I bought arrived in perfect condition.

The Host by Stephenie Meyer

I ordered the hardback edition of this book, and it arrived in pretty decent condition. You could see that the book has been read but nothing major. I have heard that this book is much better written than the Twilight Saga , and I already really enjoyed those books, so I have high expectations for The Host. We’ll see. (:

Gemma Doyle trilogy by Libba Bray

Young Adult, paranormal, historical fiction: sounds like perfection! Once I found out they sold the entire trilogy on AwesomeBooks I didn’t have to hesitate long to put them into my shopping bag. The first two books arrived in near perfect condition, but as you can see on the first picture, I was less pleassed with the last book. There were a lot of cracks in the spine and it didn’t look good at all. But I send an email to AwesomeBooks and they are willing the refund half of the price I paid for the book, so their customer service is great!

Unite Me and Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi

YAY, I finally have the entire Shatter Me series complete! I pre-ordered the paperback version of Ignite Me at the Book Depository, but it arrived about a week after release date. So I don’t think I’ll be pre-ordering again. But I am still very happy that I can finally read the last novella and last book in this trilogy. I have heard really great things about the ending of this trilogy, so I’m really excited and I CAN’T WAIT!
