Hi everyone! As mentioned in my January 2022 Wrap-Up, I had some new books coming in the mail that didn’t quite make it in time to be include in my post. However, they came yesterday, and I am ecstatic to share my purchases!
A little known fact about living in Canada is that book prices are skyrocketing. Paying $20 for a book that I’m going to finish in a day or two isn’t really up my alley (Sarah J. Maas hardbacks are going for over $30 ugh). Especially with college expenses, book buying isn’t a great habit for a Canadian student. But, Amazon tends to pull through with some amazing prices! All of the books featured were at least 30% off of the retail price and as much as 60%. Definitely check out these sales while they last!
November 9, All Your Perfects and Reminders of Him by Colleen Hoover:
Ever Since I read Ugly Love in December, I have been in love with Colleen Hoover’s writing. She writes the most emotionally damaging storylines, with such intricate characters. Every thing I’ve read from her has been incredibly moving and will hold a special place in my heart for the near future!
When Reminders of Him released in January, I was shocked by how many five-star reviews blew up on the book community! I bought it soon after, and decided to add November 9 and All Your Perfects to my cart as well! November 9 is one of Hoover’s most notable works, alongside Ugly Love and It Ends With Us. It’s crazy to think that I was actually thinking of introducing myself to CoHo through November 9th! Although All Your Perfects isn’t as popular, I’ve heard nothing but great reviews on it.
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo and Malibu Rising by Taylor Jenkins Reid:
Now, who hasn’t heard about these books!? Taylor Jenkins Reid has been blowing up in the book community recently! I’ve actually been a little nervous to pick up The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo because of the massive hype surrounding it. I swear I haven’t seen a review lower than 4.5 stars! With books like that, I tend to feel as if I am reading it because everyone else has read it, not for me. However, I read the synopsis and it sounded intriguing, so I’ll give it a go! Surprisingly, I was actually more intrigued by Malibu Rising, so hopefully reading that will motivate me to tackle her other books!
The Mistake by Elle Kennedy:
I read the first book in Kennedy’s Off-Campus series, The Deal, in January and loved it! It gave me the same vibe as Wattpad-style novels, which was super nostalgic for me. This book wasn’t insanely discounted anywhere, but I am too excited to continue this series, that I couldn’t wait any longer to get my hands on this book! I’ve heard so many great reviews on this one, so I can’t wait to jump into it!
The Way I Used to Be by Amber Smith:
This one is definitely more of a different vibe compared to the rest of the list, but its been sitting in my cart on a bunch of bookseller websites for a while now. I’ve seen this book listed on many posts regarding “Books I wish I could go back and re-read,” and that tends to say a lot about a book. I’m choosing to go into this one blindly though, as I believe it will provide for a better experience with this book!
These books not only sound great, but they all have such gorgeous covers! Like c’mon, how can you pass up a book with a stunning cover? If you’ve read any of these, let me know your thoughts below!
