-1 The Painted Lady, this was apart of December’s haul and she somehow snuck her way in to this pic, attention whore.  I don’t have time to retake this picture as I’m headed to work and this is the 2nd month in a row I’ve snuck in an extra book 😛

I also acquired another version of The Host by Stephenie Meyer BECAUSE I had the paperback/movie cover version and I couldn’t resist when I saw the original hardcover edition for only $1.75!  I’m a sucker for hardcovers!

As well, I use to own a paperback of Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer but a friend (no longer a friend) once borrowed it and due to previous statement, I clearly never got it back.  I was very sad about this loss as I am a fan of Twilight and am very anal about my belongings.  This was AT LEAST 6/7 years ago.  I’m still mad, I still want my book back, hmph.

Hope everyone had a great month buying books!  How many did you acquire this haul?

    I’ve read Marked, Breaking Dawn, and Lord of the Flies.
    The beginning of Marked was kind of slow to me, but it does pick up eventually after like eighty pages. Although, the series is very looong. 😩
    Breaking Dawn was awesome. I loved Twilight. I know how you feel, that’s why I’m really wary about loaning some people books at times unless they’re my best friends.
    The Lord of the Flies is a deep story if you think about how symbolic it truly is. I don’t want to spoil it for you, but it’s a spectacular book! 👍

      Well – that lady was not only my best friend at the time, she was also my boss and had lived with me before. BUT she did something very terrible at the time so I had to let go of that book haha but that was seriously many, many years ago now. As far as The Lord of the Flies, I’ve seen the movie several times, which is amazing, so I can only imagine the book is as well :] I’ve heard mixed reviews about Marked and the rest of the series but I figured it was only like $0.75, so if I don’t like it, it’s not like I’m losing much 😛

        Wow 😧
        Yeah, it depends on what it is exactly you like in a book. At first it was only the main character’s POV, but then it goes into everyone else’s POV about four or five books later. For me personally, somewhere around the seventh or eighth book it started to lose some spark for me. But the book that annoyed me the most was actually the second to last one. Since I’ve read that book, I haven’t been able to get past the first few pages of the final book.
