What was your last book purchase?

This past weekend, the family and I went to Reno to do a little shopping. Actually, we went to Reno because wanted to go book shopping. So we loaded up the kids and drove over an hour away so I could scour the shelves looking to fulfill some spots on my ever growing to-read list.

I feel like a thief in the night with the deals I found! All of the books above were purchased for less than $100. Not including The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo and One Dark Throne by Kendare Blake, both of which I purchased at Target, the remaining books cost just under $62! I feel immensely lucky that I live close to an independent bookstore such as Grassroots Books, which offers new and used books for large discounts. My husband probably doesn’t, but I wish they were closer!

You’ll see a several well-known favorites, as well as a couple of newer releases. I’m ashamed to say that I haven’t read any of these yet, something I plan to change before the end of the year (#goals!). In addition to this recent haul, I’m anxiously awaiting some recent orders from Book Outlet to arrive, including a boxed set of the Six of Crows duology by Leigh Bardugo! I’d like to think that after these orders come in, I’ll be satisfied for at least a few weeks, but we both know that’s a falsehood.

So tell me, what are some of your latest purchases? Was it an all-out book haul, something you bought on a whim or a new release you’ve been dying to get your hands on? Where are your favorite places to shop for books? Do you have a bookstore you frequent or do you prefer to do your shopping mainly online?

Look out for reviews of the books pictured above in the future!
