In February, I did two book haul posts for the comics I bought at Komiket and other books I purchased. For March, these are the new books that I bought and received:
Beginner’s Luck by Kate Clayborn
Hotter Than Ever by Elle Kennedy
Review copies of Ang Mundo ni Andong Agimat, After Eden by Arnold Arre, Private Iris by Jamie Bautista and Arnold Arre
The Tetethered Mage by Melissa Caruso
Jade City by Fonda Lee
Shadow Blade by Seressia Glass
Out of all of these, I’ve read and reviewed Children of Blood and Bone, which I’ll include in my round up of bookstagram reviews at the end of the month. I’m currently in the middle of Jade City and I’m enjoying it so far.
I went to an art/zine/book fair last Saturday called Gandang Ganda sa Sariling Gawa but I’ll do a separate post for that since this one already has so many titles! And I also received a few gifts because of the birthday wish list I made last week so I’ll work on another post for that. What about you, what books have you acquired recently?
I haven’t done a book haul post in ages! I’ve done some bookstagrams for some of my newly acquired books so I thought it would be a good idea to put them all together in one page. One of my bookish resolutions this year is to buy more ebooks than physical books because I find it easier to read on my Kindle. I’ve been able to follow this resolution, so far! I attended the Book Binge Bazaar hosted by National Bookstore, and only bought one book for the signing we went there for:
And here are some Kindle editions that I either bought or received as gifts:
The Dragon with a Chocolate Heart by Stephanie Burgis
The Last Namsara by Kristen Ciccarelli
The Queen’s Game by Carla de Guzman
I’m planning to go to Komiket, a local indie comic book convention and I have a few titles on my wishlist so I’m pretty sure I’ll be adding more to this pile! Comics and graphic novels are the exception to my rule of buying physical copies of books.
What about the rest of you, have you guys bought or received any books lately?
Second week of posting about Filipino books! I’m glad I was able to keep this up for another week. Week 1 round up can be found here. All posts are from Instagram. Again, I hope this will encourage other readers to become interested in featuring or reading Filipino books… there’s still more than half a month for everyone to join #BuwanNgMgaAkdangPinoy.
If you have a public library that can request titles from Overdrive, you might want to check out this list of #romanceclass titles that are available there. These books are indie published romance books by Filipino authors, and I think it’s awesome that they can be requested from libraries in other countries. I haven’t even read all of the books in that list yet! But I have read and reviewed some of them, which you can see on this tag.
It’s no secret that Mina V. Esguerra is my favorite Filipino chick lit author. I’ve pimped her books so many times here on my blog and it always makes me happy when friends listen to my recommendations and read her novels. Since it looks like several of her readers found out about her work through my blog so she wants to show her appreciation but offering discounts on her Smashwords titles. Use the codes below to get a dollar off when you purchase the ebooks.
Here are the links and codes, click on the images to see my reviews:
Smashwords link: Fairy Tale Fail
Smashwords link: Love Your Frenemies
Smashwords link: Interim Goddess of Love
Mina is being generous, she says that the coupon codes will be valid for a year. What are you waiting for? Go ahead and buy them! I’m already planning to get several copies of the Summit edition of Fairy Tale Fail when I arrive in Manila because I want to give them as gifts this Christmas.
