Oh for the Love of Books {36}

This week from Thursday to Saturday, Trinity College had a massive used book sale where students and staff could browse the rows and rows of tables and collect cheap books. 
I went with a few friends on Friday and walked away with a number of great purchases, all for a low low price of 6 euro :)

First off is a book by Cecelia Ahern. Made famous after PS I Love You was adapted into a movie, Ahern has tons of books out, but one in particular was strongly recommended by my friend Chelsey at Chels and a Book. She loves Ahern's books and has friend all but PS I Love You interestingly enough. When I saw this book packed between several others and saw that it was only 1 euro I grabbed it. 

 Where Rainbows End by Cecelia Ahern

Next were two highly acclaimed books that I've heard loads about over the past year. They both came out several years ago, but for some reason I've heard a lot about them recently. I was reluctant to read both because of the content of each - heavy topics to tackle - but figured that with the books each being so well priced I might as well pick them up and read them eventually. 

Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson

Last but not least was a book I've been wanting to pick up in stores for months. William Trevor is a beloved Irish author and you hear so much about him here. I've read several of his short stories but never one of his novels. This one I have heard nothing but good things about so I'm very excited to read it.

Love and Summer by William Trevor

What's in your mailbox this week?


  1. I enjoy books with heavy topics....Speak looks like it could be very good. I hope you enjoy them!
