My First Half Price Books Book Haul

I told you guys yesterday about how impressed I was during my first experience at Half Price Books, and I promised to show y’all which books I came away with. It looks like I make good on my promises. Sometimes. Ha. Anyway, I’m just going to show you the books now. Normally when I glance over book haul posts I see long lists of covers and descriptions of the books included. I’m not going to do that because those are almost always ultra popular YA titles that everyone knows about. I’m pretty sure you’ve never even heard of half my books, so no point in me acting like everyone will know them. To the books!

20150716_111655I know you can see the titles just fine, but I’ll tell you the book titles anyway.

Mary MaryΒ (Alex Cross #11) by James Patterson

The StrainΒ (The Strain #1) by Guillermo Del Toro & Chuck Hogan

LA RequiemΒ (Elvis Cole #8) by Robert Crais

Fahrenheit 451 by Rad Bradbury

Great Expectations by Charles Dickens

Catch-22 by Joseph Heller

Dracula by Bram Stoker

I have two interesting points about these books before I leave you alone for the rest of the day. First, I’ll be making videos for three of these titles. And second, three of the books are actually new! I bet you can’t even tell which ones aren’t. Remember what I said about the books available at Half Price Books?

Have you read any of these books? Tell me about the books you’ve added to your collection recently.


On this day in 2014 I published Writer’s Privilege is a Real Thing.

  1. I’ve never read any of them, but I would love to go to that store. Unfortunately there’s none in my area 😦


    • I’m reading Fahrenheit 451 right now and I’ll be making a video for it since it’s from the Amazon list. I’ll be doing the same for Catch-22. Guess you gotta watch those when they happen now. 😊

    • I’ve read Dracula. It’s one of the best books I’ve read. But I didn’t have a copy. I think most people I know read Great Expectations in high school. I didn’t.


  2. I’ve read Great Expectations, Farenheit 451, and Catch-22. Not too shabby. My fav of the three was Farenheit 451. I haven’t read Dracula yet. It seems from reading other comments that I should get to reading it soon.


    • Well I’ll be making a video about all of those you mentioned. Dracula is an all-time favorite of mine. I think if it were written today it’d be a runaway bestseller with people talking about how it changed the vampire genre. Even in today’s literary world. It’s that good.

  3. I found Catch-22 by Joseph Heller hard to read. For me, it just moved too slow and didn’t hold my attention. I did read it back in high school off a book list that we got to pick books from, but I’m not sure if I want to re-visit that book and give it another go.

    But I do want to get around to reading Great Expectations by Charles Dickens.
