Thrift Store Book Haul: January 21, 2023

My partner and I went to an indie bookstore and two thrift stores this past weekend. I’ve been trying to buy fewer books lately, and I managed to not buy books from two out of the three stores. BUT the third store (one of the thrift stores) was GIVING ALL OF THEIR BOOKS AWAY FOR FREE so I technically didn’t buy them!

Here are the books I bought along with their blurbs and Amazon affiliate links. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases. This comes at no additional cost to you.

My Books

  • Kiss of Life by Daniel Waters

    The phenomenon that’s been sweeping the country seems to be here to stay. Not only are the teenagers who have come back from their graves still here, but newlydeads are being unearthed all the time. While scientists look for answers and politicians take their stands, the undead population of Oakville have banded together in a group they’re calling the Sons of Romero, hoping to find solidarity in segregation.

    Phoebe Kendall may be alive, but she feels just as lost and alone as her dead friends. Just when she reconciled herself to having feelings for a zombie — her Homecoming date Tommy Williams — her friend Adam is murdered taking a bullet that was meant for “her.” Things get even more confusing when Adam comes back from the grave. Now she has romantic interest in two dead boys; one who saved her life, and one she can’t seem to live without.
  • It’s Not Like It’s a Secret by Misa Sugiura

    Sixteen-year-old Sana Kiyohara has too many secrets. Some are small, like how it bothers her when her friends don’t invite her to parties. Some are big, like that fact that her father may be having an affair. And then there’s the one that she can barely even admit to herself—the one about how she might have a crush on her best friend.

    When Sana and her family move to California she begins to wonder if it’s finally time for some honesty, especially after she meets Jamie Ramirez. Jamie is beautiful and smart and unlike anyone Sana’s ever known. There are just a few problems: Sana’s new friends don’t trust Jamie’s crowd; Jamie’s friends clearly don’t want her around anyway; and a sweet guy named Caleb seems to have more-than-friendly feelings for her. Meanwhile, her dad’s affair is becoming too obvious to ignore anymore.

    Sana always figured that the hardest thing would be to tell people that she wants to date a girl, but as she quickly learns, telling the truth is easy… what comes after it, though, is a whole lot more complicated.
  • Weird but True by Leslie Gilbert Elman

    True or False?

    Tamarin monkeys dig the heavy metal sound of the band Metallica If an axolotl salamander loses a leg, it will grow a new one in about three weeks Peach pits, apricot pits, and apple seeds contain the poison cyanide A mosquito’s “nose” is located on its antennae The moon is moving away from the Earth at a rate of about 1.5 inches each year About one in every 863 patients under general anethesia has some awareness or recollection of their surgical procedure Each of us carries about 150 species of bacteria on our hands

    Weird… but true!
