Bookworming: Book Haul 080314

The hubby and I chanced upon the Bestsellers sale at Podium this past weekend! Book sales are a great way to discover books I have never heard of, or buy books that I would never consider buying at full price, or finally get the books that I have forgotten about. I also never walk past Bestseller sales because they always have hidden gems just waiting to be snatched up. Last year, I found Rachel Cohn and David Levithan's Dash & Lily's Book of Dares at a Bestsellers sale in Galleria for only 99 pesos!

When I saw the sale yesterday I just had to go in and scour all the shelves. I haven't been buying any new books lately because I've been re-reading my old ones, so I really had a hankering for some fresh tomes. This time around, I scored a bunch of books at prices that were practically free. I got four paperbacks for 150 pesos (40 pesos and 30 pesos each)! It was a good day for this bookworm! Here's the rundown.


Little Men by Louisa May Alcott
I just re-read Little Women -- one of my favorite books of all time -- so I had to get this when I saw it. I somehow never thought about trying to find the two books deemed as Little Women sequels until now. This means I have to remember to find Jo's Boys next.

Gossip Girl by Cecily von Ziegasar
Loved the show, never read the books. I need some chick lit in my life at the moment, so I jumped at this find. I like that this is the TV version with Blair Waldorf and Serena van der Woodsen on the cover too!

The Sigh of Haruhi Suzumiya and The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya by Nagaru Tanigawa
Being a lover of all things Japanese (well, almost), I grabbed these books as soon as I saw them. They're Japanese YA fiction, and my research tells me they've also been made into manga. If they're good, I will have to find the two other books in the series.

Can you believe that all these books only cost me 150 bucks? I've already started reading. Reviews will be coming soon!

What do you think of this haul? Let's talk in the comments!
