I’m the only idiot who orders books and gets them DAYS before I go to BookCon! Oh well, I must now live with my choices! (Also my friend says she’s going to start cutting me off soon... uh oh...)
This was my first time ordering from BookOutlet.com so I may have gone a bit overboard! For those of you who don’t know, BookOutlet is a discounted book website where all of the books sold are either bargain books (and have the red or black dot/line on the pages) or damaged copies, hence why they are so cheap! Here’s what I decided to get:
Starry Eyes by Jenn Bennett~ A modern take on Romeo and Juliet, Zorie and Lennon are best friends-turned-enemies. But when a camping trip goes sideways and they are left alone in the wilderness, will they reconnect or let their differences split them apart even more?
Reason: I remember when this book came out and wanting to read it! So for $3.89 I decided to pull the trigger and buy it!
Love and Other Train Wrecks by Leah Konen~ When two strangers meet on a train, that eventually breaks down, a small detour may lead to true love.
Reason: How could I resist a whirlwind romance book like this?!
Flipped by Wendelin Van Draanen~ Julie loves Bryce (even though they are only 7 years old) and Bryce can’t stand Julie. However, when they reach middle school, things, and feelings, start to change when Bryce starts liking Julie and Julie can’t stand Bryce.
Reason: This is one of my favorite books ever and I lent it to a friend in high school and never got it back 😕 so I decided it was time to replace it!
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell~ Cath loves writing fanfiction and geeking out over her favorite fictional character, but when her and her twin sister set off for college, will Cath need to grow up and leave her fandom behind her?
Reason: Another book that I remember wanting to read when it came out but never did! Also, I want to read Carry On, but figured I should probably read this one first (since they relate to one another).
This Is the Life by Alex Shearer~ Two brothers, who are now estranged, must come back into each other’s lives when one of them develops cancer and the other becomes his caretaker.
Reason: The synopsis intrigued me and I couldn’t beat a 99¢ book!!
True (sort of...) by Katherine Hannigan~ Delly, Brud, and Ferris are all from the same neighborhood, but are vastly different from one another. But throughout one summer, they have fun, tell secrets and truths, and learn a lot about friendship.
Reason: This is another book I read when I was younger, but borrowed it from my aunt and uncle. So I decided to buy my own copy of the book. Also I kinda forgot what happens so I also wanted to reread it again soon!
Has anyone read these book or used BookOutlet before? I’d love to know what you guys thought of them!📚
