Book Haul : Library's Big Book Sale

I had the pleasure of having a preview sale at the local library, it was a misunderstanding that lead to some serious awesomeness. Listed as on sale on October 19-22nd, and when I called they said yes it was also that Thursday, so I showed up expecting to do some serious shouldering of people out of the way, but that’s not what happened.

The woman at the door said “umm the big sale starts tomorrow”

ME:” UGH. no, it said online today, friday, saturday & monday; and I called the library and they said it was today… I came all the way here from New Haven for this...” I started to get really angry although I didn’t show it…
then she looked at me and said,” come on in…” & then this happened:
I spent the next two hours roaming free through the thousands of books and the hundreds of shelves gazing at the books and seeking ones that called me. 
I had a specific list, but I figured it I had some of the collection and not the ones I found then they too were coming home; these are the ones that wanted to come home with me. ***I'm going to link to Goodreads so you can see the book blurbs & I will highlight the ones I can't wait to read***    (* indicates a series)

Savannah Russe: The DarkWing Chronicle *:
The government knows that Daphne Urban is a vampire, and they have an ultimatum: spy for them, or be killed. The choice is easy. She can speak 13 languages, has a genius IQ, and has escaped detection for nearly five hundred years-making her perfect for Team Darkwing. Her first mission is to get close to Bonaventure, a shady arms dealer with an unexpected gift for seduction. But when Darius, a darkly sexy vampire slayer, begins chasing her, Darius is torn between desire and duty. For his lithe, young prey is also his ultimate temptation.

Tamsin Greene comes from a long line of witches, and she was supposed to be one of the most Talented among them. But Tamsin's magic never showed up. Now seventeen, Tamsin attends boarding school in Manhattan, far from her family. But when a handsome young professor mistakes her for her very Talented sister, Tamsin agrees to find a lost family heirloom for him. The search—and the stranger—will prove to be more sinister than they first appeared, ultimately sending Tamsin on a treasure hunt through time that will unlock the secret of her true identity, unearth the sins of her family, and unleash a power so vengeful that it could destroy them all. This is a spellbinding display of storytelling that will exhilarate, enthrall, and thoroughly enchant.
And there you have it folks, the end of the big book sale and I got a total of 36, yes 36 books for $9.25. And... I got to help my library not only prevent books from ending up in the dumb but also raise funds for newer books. i just can't wait to dive into these books how about you?? Any good book sales near you?? Why not share some of you nice book adventures or even what you got up to this weekend??

Well Happy Reading
