Book Loot (40)

Straight from the Department of Better Late Than Never, here's my first post of 2020: my (mostly) Book Outlet haul from . . . Black Friday 2019. Yikes!

In my defense, the end of 2019 was bonkers. On top of the holiday rush, I got a whopper of a cold just in time for Christmas. Said cold didn't care when the new year dawned and continued to linger. I finally gave in and got it checked out because the nagging cough was keeping me up at night. The best guess was allergic bronchitis, and off I went with prescriptions for a disgusting tasting liquid and an inhaler. Those finally did the trick, and I'm happy to report that I can now get through a complete sentence without needing to stop to hack until my eyes water.

Getting back on topic to books, I'd first heard about Book Outlet on Facebook, where I also saw that subscribers to their emails would receive early access to their Black Friday sale. This seemed like the perfect time to give the site a try, and ahhhhhhhh . . . . It was a real challenge not to put EVERYTHING in my cart! Once common sense was restored, I narrowed down my selections to 8, lol. (I got both The Epic Crush of Genie Lo and Sky Without Stars from Amazon.)

Bought:

The Epic Crush of Genie Lo by F.C. Yee
The Twelve Days of Dash and Lily by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan
There's Someone Inside Your House by Stephanie Perkins
American Panda by Gloria Chao
Sky Without Stars by Jessica Brody & Joanne Rendell
Eon by Alison Goodman
Eona by Alison Goodman
Clariel by Garth Nix
Goldenhand by Garth Nix
A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer
