more books: I actually won something

Hello everyone! I thought I’d update you all on some new books I acquired this month.

The first three I bought on my own, the first two from Barnes & Noble and the third from this cute little independent bookstore Bennington, Vermont. There aren’t many independent bookstores where I live, but fortunately this one was near a college I was visiting. I couldn’t resist stopping in! I found this gorgeous copy of Little Women that is a Penguin Threads edition, and entire outside looks like it was designed with embroidery. It’s so beautiful!

One + One = Blue by MJ Auch

The Summer I Wasn’t Me by Jessica Verdi

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott

And then something incredibly exciting happened.

I ACTUALLY WON SOMETHING.

I’m not usually lucky when it comes to winning prizes, money from scratch tickets, etc. So when I found out that you could enter giveaways on Goodreads, I wasn’t expecting to really win anything. BUT THEN IT HAPPENED. I won a copy of this book:

Choosing to be Insurgent or Allegiant by Valerie Estelle Frankel

Needless to say, it’s been a great month for books!

Have you read any of these books? What did you think of them? What books have you gotten recently? What books do you want to get? Let me know in the comments section below!

Yours,

HOLLY

  1. Ah, congratulations on winning that book from Goodreads! I feel like everyone enters with no expectation of winning, which makes actually winning that much sweeter. (: The three books in the first picture look pulchritudinous too; it’s so cool that you were able to attain Little Women from an independent bookstore. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on all of your reads!

  2. Thanks! Yeah, so many people enter those giveaways that I had absolutely no hope that I would win whatsoever. But I’m so happy I did!
    By the way, awesome use of pulchritudinous- I’ve never actually heard anyone use it in real life besides in vocab classes at school, but that’s fantastic! 🙂
