Chattanooga Book Haul

Yesterday I got to spend the day with my husband in Chattanooga, Tennessee. We had so much fun. We went to McKay Used Books. It was amazing! I was able to buy five books and a record for under $40. We also made a stop after lunch at the Barnes and Noble in Hamilton Place Mall for coffee and dessert. Of course, I had to pick up a new release there.

Synopsis:

Everything you thought you knew about witches is wrong. They are much darker, and they are much more horrifying. Wytches takes the mythology of witches to a far creepier, bone-chilling place than readers have dared venture before.

When the Rooks family moves to the remote town of Litchfield, NH to escape a haunting trauma, they’re hopeful about starting over. But something evil is waiting for them in the woods just beyond town. Watching from the trees. Ancient…and hungry.

I have been wanting to read more graphic novels. I don’t know a lot about this but it looks interesting so I had to have it. Not to mention it was only $4.00.

Synopsis: Bilbo Baggins is a hobbit who enjoys a comfortable, unambitious life, rarely traveling any farther than his pantry or cellar. But his contentment is disturbed when the wizard Gandalf and a company of dwarves arrive on his doorstep one day to whisk him away on an adventure. They have launched a plot to raid the treasure hoard guarded by Smaug the Magnificent, a large and very dangerous dragon. Bilbo reluctantly joins their quest, unaware that on his journey to the Lonely Mountain he will encounter both a magic ring and a frightening creature known as Gollum.

I must confess I have never read this. I hope to change that soon. I paid $10 for this copy.

Synopsis:

Soldier. Summoner. Saint. Alina Starkov’s power has grown, but not without a price. She is the Sun Summoner―hunted across the True Sea, haunted by the lives she took on the Shadow Fold. But she and Mal can’t outrun their enemies for long.

The Darkling is more determined than ever to claim Alina’s magic and use it to take the Ravkan throne. With nowhere else to turn, Alina enlists the help of an infamous privateer and sets out to lead the Grisha army.

But as the truth of Alina’s destiny unfolds, she slips deeper into the Darkling’s deadly game of forbidden magic, and further away from her humanity. To save her country, Alina will have to choose between her power and the love she thought would always be her shelter. No victory can come without sacrifice―and only she can face the oncoming storm.

I can’t wait to continue on with this series. I couldn’t say no to this copy for $5.00.

Synopsis: This volume follows two stories: one written by Snyder and one written by King. Snyder’s story is set in 1920’s LA, we follow Pearl, a young woman who is turned into a vampire and sets out on a path of righteous revenge against the European Vampires who tortured and abused her. This story is paired with King’s story, a western about Skinner Sweet, the original American Vampire– a stronger, faster creature than any vampire ever seen before with rattlesnake fangs and powered by the sun.

To be honest, I didn’t read the synopsis for this until typing it in this post. I saw the word vampire and Stephen King so I had to get it. Also, it was only $2.00.

I found this fun recipe book for $0.75. I can’t wait to check it out.

Synopsis:

With his dying words, H—Jacob Portman’s final connection to his grandfather Abe’s secret life entrusts Jacob with a mission: Deliver newly con­tacted peculiar Noor Pradesh to an operative known only as V. Noor is being hunted. She is the subject of an ancient prophecy, one that foretells a looming apocalypse. Save Noor—Save the future of all peculiardom.

With only a few bewildering clues to follow, Jacob must figure out how to find V, the most enigmatic, and most powerful, of Abe’s former associates. But V is in hiding and she never, ever, wants to be found

This was my sugar induced Barnes and Noble purchase. I can’t wait to continue on. I have been waiting a year for this. I hope it is as good as the tiramisu cup I had while purchasing this.

So this was my Chattanooga Book haul. I had done so well at not purchasing books but that all has come to an end. I should have a lot to read for a while now.
