Thrift-Store Thursday!

I thought it would be fun to go scrounging around the local thrift shop for books, see if I could find any good ones. Usually, you can find droves of historical fiction, but I was determined to find something, anything YA. And I was in high luck! Someone must have cleaned out their YA library because I found twelve books total, for a little over eight dollars! Is that a steal or what?!

These are three of the ones that I'm super excited about! Aces Up by Lauren Barnholdt, Someone Like You by Sarah Dessen and The Year I Turned Sixteen(4 books in 1) by Diane Scwemm

Here are three more that I'm excited about and they just happen to be the firsts in their series'! Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater, Marked by P.C. Cast & Kristen Cast and Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder

It might be a crime that I haven't read any of the Vampire Academy books by Richelle Mead, but at least now I have the second one to help get me motivated. 

Here's another one that looked interesting, Guardian of the Dead by Karen Healey

The other books that I bought are The Crocodile Bird by Ruth Rendell, Barbarian and Escape(Sons of Dark 1&2) by Lynne Ewing and Mina by Marie Kiraly. So, twelve books in total, all sound interesting! All I have to do now is find the time to read them all! I'm sure I can squeeze them in, so keep a look out for their reviews! Have you found any good books? I would love to know if anyone else is thrifting it up ;)

Happy Reading!
