Look at My New Books!

       I went to to the bookstore today, (which automatically makes my day better) and bought some books, four books to be exact. I bought...


       Let me tell you a wonderful story about my purchase of The Mortal Instruments books. I originally came just to buy The City of Bones, then I saw how expensive it was, It would have come to at least $30.00 dollars with tax, to me that's outrageous. Very rarely will I pay  30.00 for a book that is not even in hardcover. It's just not happening,  but just this once, I gave in. I've been wanting to read this book for a while, and I caved.
       While as I was going to pay for the book, the man at the cash says,
       "We have a box set here, I could get it for you if you like, it's on sale."
       I was sure he was about to try to sell me a box set that's priced at $70.00, and I was all prepared to turn him down. Then he tells me the price is $22.00. It's 50% off, and it's $22.00. I couldn't refuse it. I could have payed the same price for one book, or get three of them. What amazes me is that the guy could have let me pay $30.00, and he could have made a bigger sale. But he showed me the set and made less of a profit. He has made me a very happy customer. :)
       I am very excited to read all of these books. The Mortal Instruments have such a huge hype over them right now with the movie out, and I really want to see if the books deserve all the hype that they are getting. It could be another book like the Maze Runner for me. So much hype, and I felt like I was the only one that didn't like it. As for Alice in Zombieland, It seems really intriguing, I love when people put spins on classic tales such as Alice in Wonderland. As soon as I finish reading Wicked Hunger and one other book, I'm going to start these ones, and I must say, I am BURSTING with excitement. 


  1. I got the box set too! It is just so much cheaper, because $30 is crazy!

    1. EXACTLY books can get expensive, but $30 for a book that is not even in hardcover? I understand that these books are in high demand right now, but $30 isn't exactly reasonable for me.

  2. Ah I'm so jealous you got a good deal! I will get around to reading the series soon, so we can compare how we each enjoyed it :)

    1. I'm so late with reading these books. I wanted to, but it was always out at the library, and they are kind of long. But anyway, can't wait to compare the books with you! :P
