(The winner of Laura Josephsen’s book is Eileen Astel! Please email me! Congrats.)
I received the email that the books at Borders were 50-70% off. So I made one last journey and brought my kids. I had no idea what to expect.
But I was looking for some deals.
The middle grade section was completely wiped out. Completely.
Most of the YA but not all was gone. Borders had brought out a lot of warehouse books. Nothing I wanted to buy though. Lots of vampire books. I guess vampires don’t live forever after all. #finally
I did purchase two books. DELIRIUM by Lauren Oliver. And WITHER by Lauren DeStefano. Honestly, even at 50% it wasn’t much cheaper than Amazon. And we wonder why bookstores are crumbling. Srsly. #not-ebooks
I also just received a shipment from Amazon. I have a major theme going. I just finished IMAGINARY GIRLS by Nova Ren Suma. And I can’t wait to read HOURGLASS by Myra McEntire. BETWEEN by Jessica Warman. And HEREAFTER by Tara Hudson.
Can you say paranormal? Ghostly? Time travel?
Yes that’s a big part of what I read and love to write. #can’thelpit
But the covers are gorgeous. The writing drew me in from page one.
And I absolutely love that I have the hard covers and they aren’t on my Kindle.
Why did I purchase those? A combination of buzz and cover love and genre. But I didn’t buy any of them until I’d read the opening pages.
How do you decide which books to buy? Any last purchases from Borders?
