Bookish Buys & Weekly Wrap-up #2

This is where I show everything I that I bought, borrowed, or just added to my bookshelf over the past week. I throw together Showcase Sunday and Stacking the Shelves in one post. I also include a wrap-up of everything that was posted to the blog this past week.

Showcase Sunday is hosted by Vicky at Books, Biscuits, and Tea. For more information about how this feature works and how to join in, click here.

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Team at Tynga’s Reviews. For more information about how this feature works and how to join in, click here.


I sold about 30 books to Half Priced Books this week so I took some of that money and bought a few more (because I have no self-control). To my defense though a couple of those have been on my wish list for a while and both the Land of Elyon books and Catching Jordan were only $1. I already own numbers 1 & 3 of the Land of Elyon books (which I also bought for $1 or less) so I figured I should pick up those two while they were cheap.

A Midsummer’s Nightmare by Kody Keplinger

Perfect by Ellen Hopkins

Catching Jordan (Hundred Oaks #1) by Miranda Kenneally

There was also a Groupon for which I just had to buy. $25 for a $50 voucher. You better believe I was all over that. I believe the Groupon has already finished or else I would have linked it here for everyone else.

I am on my TBR Takedown for the rest of the year so I have been requesting the review books that have already came out from my library. I had about 7 on hold for me and 5 of those came in this week. So hopefully I can knock those off my review list.


Parallel by Lauren Miller

The Next two I have actually already read and the reviews will be up within the next couple weeks.

Strangelets by Michelle Gagnon

Towering by Alex Flynn (I was already half way through this on my Kindle when it came in from the library. It was taking me awhile to read it but I flew through the rest of this in a couple hours after I had the physical book.)

How was your week? Let me know in the comments!


  1. I absolutely loved Something Stranger and Deadly and Sweet Evil, so I hightly recommend those two!

    Deadly Departed was also a very cool take on zombies and period heroines!

    1. I think those books sounded like they would be good October reads so I'm saving them for then. I hope I like them as much as you did!


I love hearing your opinions so please feel free to leave me a comment!
