[A Birthday Book Haul]

Hi y’all!

Happy Spring! I hope you are enjoying warmer weather wherever you are. Our flowering trees are blooming and the tulips are opening. We love all the springtime flowers and weather.

Today, I thought I’d share a recent book haul. I have a favorite used bookstore near me. And for my most recent birthday, I requested gift cards to this store. And both my parents and my in laws came through with gift certificates! I was thrilled! The perfect present for a bibliophile, right? 🙂 

We finally were able to go this past week on a date to this bookstore and I found so many treasures! I thought I would share my haul. Because the bookish community is fantastic and I think we all appreciate good book hauls 🙂 Enjoy!IMG_20210412_165847412_HDR

  • That’s 4 Newbery Medal winners and 1 Newbery Honor Book.
  • 5 books I’ve read before (some several years ago and others recently) and 5 I haven’t read yet.
  • 2 books have reviews already on my blog.
  • Several I want to read to my kids. And a few I want to read by myself.
  • A few fantasy novels and several historical fiction stories.
  • 6 authors I have read other books by and 7 that I own other books by.

It’s a fun pile of additions to my home library! The hardest question now is which should I read first.

What books have you brought home recently?
Do you prefer searching through bookstores or browsing online for books?


P.S. Can we please take a moment to FREAK OUT about the recent cover and title reveal for the final Dragonwatch book?! I can’t wait!! Seriously, what am I supposed to do until October?

  1. I love Beverly Cleary – I was sad to hear that she’d died recently, although she was over 100. Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator gave me nightmares – I was only 6 when I read it, and I was convinced for weeks that Vermicious Knids were hiding in my bedroom!
