So over the weekend, as I attended the #KMRinPH book signing event, I’ve received word that Fully Booked SM Megamall was having an on-going sale. So, being the sale-loving book hoarder that I am, I didn’t let this money-saving chance pass me by. Of course, I had to take advantage of this and planned on buying books from Sarah J. Maas’ Throne of Glass Series. And boy, was I not disappointed! Below are some details about my recent book haul.
- A Court of Thorns and Roses in Hardcover format by Sarah J. Maas – This book has been on my to-buy list ever since I started hearing about Sarah J. Maas and her books. And so, after days of waiting and book hunting, I finally have it! I actually have no idea as to what this book is about but I do know that this is a book filled with fantasy and world-building. Let me see how this book will treat me. Originally priced as Php874.00, thanks to the 20% off sale, I snagged this book for only Php699.20!
- Throne of Glass in Hardcover format by Sarah J. Maas – Just like A Court of Thorns and Roses, after hearing numerous praises from several book friends, I finally decided on buying this book from the series of the same name. Man, I heard nothing but good things about this series and I wanted to give it a try. And oh, look at the gorgeous cover! Originally priced as Php855.00, thanks to the 20% off sale, I snagged this book for only Php684.00!
- All The Bright Places in Hardcover format by Jennifer Niven – If you’re a close friend of mine, you would know how much I love this book. This is by far my favorite read of 2015, and when I first bought and read it, I bought a trade paperback copy because I wasn’t able to find it hardcover format. And I needed to buy it again in hardcover because it was just that good! So as I browsed the shelves of Fully Booked, I came across a copy of this book which had a “Damaged Copy – Less 20%” mark on it’s back. Curious, I checked the book for damage and I saw that it was only minimal. And since it wasn’t my priority that day, I placed it back on the shelves. Upon payment of my books, I discovered through one of their staff that a damaged copy would still incur 20% less due to their sale, and therefore, if I buy the damaged copy, I would get a total of 40% off. So I raced back to where it was, and guess what! I bought it for only Php432.00! It was originally priced at Php720.00! What a steal, right? ♥
- The Ship of Brides in Trade Paperback format by Jojo Moyes – This was actually and impulsive purchase. I don’t know but there’s something about Jojo Moyes and her books that makes her one of my auto-buy authors. And it’s a contemporary book so I feel like it’s such a great buy. Originally priced as Php640.00, thanks to the 20% off sale, I snagged this book for only Php512.00!
And there you have it! Over the weekend, I spent a total of Php2,328.00. Yes, I am that much of an addict, and that much of a book hoarder. And guess what. I am not finished yet. Hopefully, by the end of this week, I save enough book money to buy the 3 remaining books by Sarah J. Maas entitled Crown of Midnight, Heir of Fire, and The Assassin’s Blade. Good God, this is such an expensive vice.
