Bookstore Adventures! - Mini Haul 01

I finally got out of this boring place and visited beautiful British Columbia! Besides taking like a million pictures, it being my first time seeing the mountains and all, there were a few things on my list that weren't really trip related. Well, one thing: visit Chapters. You see, the city I currently call home only has a Coles and if you're from Canada you'll know the difference immediately, for anyone who doesn't let me explain. Coles, Chapters, Indigo are all the same company but Chapters and Indigo are their big stores, in some cities multiple floors of books in one place. Coles is like the sparks notes of Chapters, small, always found in malls and carry only really newer books but you can find a bit of everything there. They get picked over quick and the selection is limited of course if they don't have it though, they can order it for you. 

Chapters, Chapters has all kinds of books which means lots of books go on sale so naturally, I went straight to those. Coming away with five books, four of which were hard covers for a whopping $23.00 I felt pretty accomplished. 

Here's what I got:

 Top to Bottom:

Which takes place during the war. A girl gets news that her brother has gone missing in the field believed to be dead. She lies about her age and gets herself sent over as a nurse all while secretly searching for the truth about her brother.

Taking place in the 1920's our main character has the power to read the future. Desperate to keep it a secret from her mother a fake illusionist who would cash out on her powers she finds herself between a rock and a hard place when her visions show her mother in peril. 

Sounds similar to Libba Bray's Diviner's world.

Taking place in the near future of 2019 soldiers are administered a drug called lullabye to help them cope with post traumatic stress in fact it takes the memories away. So when a murder occurs and the star witness has taken one how do they solve the case? Apparently with clues from the Wizard of Oz and Alice in Wonderland.

A widowed empty nester lives in a beach house on the outskirts of town growing older everyday she doesn't question when a woman shows up on her doorstep claiming to be a care worker. Later she realizes this may not be the case but she's already let the woman in and now she searches for answers. *I got this because it has a gorgeous cover. 

I have always enjoyed this book, so when I saw it for a nice $6.99 I couldn't leave it. 
Aliens come to Earth and take humans as their hosts, but not expecting the emotions and the whirlwind of humanity it's only a matter of time before complications occur. 

Have you guys got any good deals on books lately? The non-sale price of my books here would have been well over $100.00 which is crazy to think about. Where do you guys find good book deals?
