Book Fair!

Hey, guys! I'm posting late (again) today because 1) I went outside for the whole day, and 2) This freaking unstable Internet connection is killing me. Anyway, I finally managed to write a blog now (gah, I haven't bathed).

So today, I went to a book fair in Kuala Lumpur, organized by Popular Bookstore (my favorite retail store <3), where they were selling books at RM5. *gasps* Just five! Normally, a book here would cost RM50 at the most. Hooray for 90% discount! Though there was a catch: a customer can only buy 10 books, which tallies to a single novel.

I had a difficult time browsing. There were so many books—and hundreds of books of the same title—that I could choose from. Classics, thrillers, horror, sci-fi, fantasy, they are all there. Even Throne of GlassHARDCOVER edition! But I didn't buy that, well, I've already a copy of the book. Most of the books were dated at 2013. There weren't any J.K. Rowling, Stephenie Meyer, nor Suzanne Collins though (cri).

I ended up buying six books. Four of them part of a fantasy series, one sci-fi, one thriller (because my mother wanted to read).
1) Wild Magic by Tamora Pierce
2) Wolf-Speaker by Tamora Pierce
3) Emperor Mage by Tamora Pierce
4) The Realm of the Gods by Tamora Pierce
5) Allegiant by Veronica Roth
6) The Bone Tree by Greg Iles
Here they are in a stack

It's late at night now, so I don't think I'll be doing any writing today. I'm also beat from the traveling here and there. Oh yeah, Empire of Storms wasn't there, unfortunately. So I went to my local bookstores—and guess what?—they still don't have it. -_- The anticipation is killing me.

That's all I'm writing today. Have you guys read any of the books above? Please tell me what you think of them down below (please no spoilers). Alright, now if you'll excuse me, I'll take a bath and then moan about not having Empire of Storms. Bye! :)


  1. I've planned to read Veronica Roth's books, so I envy that Allegiant in hardcover right there. In october, I'll start with divergent. Have you already read it? Anyway, great choice!

    1. Unfortunately, my Allegiant copy isn't in hardcover. :( I haven't read Divergent (never found it in the fair), but I know what happened in that book. I also haven't read Insurgent, though I watched the movie (never found it in the fair either).

  2. If I were you I would certainly go to the book fair far way in KL. Hehe..unfortunately I have extra 'handbags' which I need to carry with me, so I think I'll just go to the nearest book store which is XCess book store. I'll try to check there for the book that you wanted. See you at school.

    1. I'd be so darn glad that I won't even have words if you'd find a copy for me. xD
      It's been two weeks and Popular still doesn't have it. *sigh*


Do you have something to share? Please do leave your thoughts. I would love to know your opinions. :)
