Here is one month worth of Friday Buys!   Enjoy!

The Pirate Captain's Daughter by Eve Bunting
$1.00 hardcover...I couldn't resist. Great condition.

The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan  (click for my review)
Seriously, a must grab.  Great condition.

Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
Bought with a gift card...only had to spend $5 of my own cash.  I love giftcards!
From my experience, Lauren Oliver = true love.  I can't wait to dive into this book!!! :D

Cascade by Lisa T. Bergren
So excited for this one!

Defend and Betray by Anne Perry
The 3rd book in one of my favorite series, the William Monk series.

Cybele's Secret by Juliet Marillier
Remember last Friday Buys?  I went back to that same store right after I published it and found the lovely sequel to Wildwood Dancing.  Yep.  $2.00 perfect condition hardcover.  Love deals like that!!

Coraline by Neil Gaiman
So excited about this one!  25 cents!

This beautiful 1940 hardcover edition of The Count of Monte Cristo.  LOVE this book.  So I LOVE any old copies of it I can get my hands on.  This is the first, and it won't be the last.  Promise. :D

The Scottish Chiefs by Jane Porter
A friend bought this for me for high school graduation.  She keeps telling me its amazing, and I believe her.  Basically, it's the "truer" version of Braveheart.  Check it out!

Gone by Michael Grant
My sister reads like I do, and in the last school year she read over 15,000 obviously she got a prize.  She got to pick a book, and she picked this one.  It may not be mine, but it's sitting under the same roof as me, which means it will eventually be read by me. :)  Excited to read it!

The final product!  One months worth of purchases and gifts and awesome finds!

  6. That is such a gorgeous copy of the Count of Monte Cristo! Nice buy!

  7. I love how you include how much they cost. I'm a huge bargain shopper, so I'm pretty much equally giddy over the books you got and the prices you paid. :)

    And you have Cascade. *sigh* I love Cascade :)
