Bookish Buys & Weekly Wrap-up #35

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 totally forgot to do one of these last week! On my defense I came down with strep throat and we were super busy. So this covers the last two weeks. So a couple weeks ago I decided that I hadn’t been to Half Price Books in a while and that I was going to take the evening to myself. So I did. This also led to me going to the Barnes & Noble across the street. I have been sticking to my goal of not buying books just because everyone says they are good. I am only buying them if I think they sound good. I also picked up a couple that I haven’t heard anything about. I haven’t done that in a while.

The Grim Grotto (A Series of Unfortunate Events, #11)To All the Boys I've Loved Before (To All the Boys I've Loved Before, #1)

Learning not to Drown by Anna Shinoda
Saga Volume 3 by Brian K. Vaughn
Deep and Dark and Dangerous by Mary Downing Hahn

I picked up the most awesome copy of this next book at HPB. I have never seen this version before and I am so glad I have waited to buy this. It has art by Ellen Forney in it and on the book itself. I just read her autobiography graphic novel and loved the artwork in it so this is like a bonus!

Before I went to the physical stores I downloaded a couple graphic novels.

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


  1. Great haul and hope you're feeling better! Strep throat is awful. I've been wanting to read The Archived and To All the Boys I've Loved Before for awhile now. I'd forgotten about the Lemony Snicket books. I read the first few ages ago and enjoyed them. Have a great (and healthy) week!

  2. Oh yea, you got a ton of great books there.
    I've been hearing so much about the Saga series. I requested them at my library and I just got notice that my hold is available for pick up today. So yay! :)
    Enjoy all your new reads.
    Happy reading!

  3. I love the Series of Unfortunate Events, and Tease and The Archived sound great. Enjoy them :) My STS
