Recent Book Outlet Haul! September 2016


I have a book buying problem.  I love Book Outlet because they have some great deals on books.  This order was a little more expensive than past orders because I purchased mostly hard cover books and some of them were recent releases.

Landfall Freight



The theme for November was 'Girl Gangs'.  They also include awesome artsy goodies in every box!!


Every box comes with a card describing everything inside.



The Landfall Freight November 2015 box included:



Never Goodnight by Coco Moodysson (graphic novel)



This graphic novel currently has a 3.63 star rating on Goodreads.  This looks very cool.  I can't wait to read it!!

Retail Value:  $18.99  Amazon Price:  $14.45


Goodreads synopsis:

The cult Swedish graphic novel that inspired the critically acclaimed Lukas Moodysson film ‘We Are the Best!’


Coco, Klara and Mathilda have known each other since primary school, where they met in Folk Dancing class. Now they’re almost teenagers, and their anarchist ideals and dreams of forming a world-beating punk band set them apart from the other girls at school. They can’t play any instruments, practice with pillows and pans, and keep getting told that punk is dead. But they’re not going to let any of those things get in their way…


Published in English for the first time, Never Goodnight is a hilarious and life-affirming memoir that will remind you that all you need in life is your best friends, a can of hairspray and three guitar chords.



They also included a cute bookmark and the always wonderful caramel apple lollipop!




Paper Girls by Brian K. Vaughn, Cliff Chiang and Matt Wilson (Comic Issue #1)


I've been wanting to read this and I'm so excited that it was included in this box.  This looks really good and it's written by Brian K. Vaughn who wrote the Saga series (which is awesome!!!).  I'm also happy that this is the first issue.  This currently has a 4.33 star rating on Goodreads.

Retail Value:  $2.99

Goodreads synopsis:

SAGA writer BRIAN K. VAUGHAN launches a brand-new ONGOING SERIES with superstar Wonder Woman artist CLIFF CHIANG!

In the early hours after Halloween of 1988, four 12-year-old newspaper delivery girls uncover the most important story of all time. 

Stand By Me meets War of the Worlds in this mysterious young adult adventure.



Imaginary Girl Bands by Gemma Flack (Zine)


Gemma Flack has a shop on Etsy which I have to check out.  This is a cute zine!!

Retail Value:  $3.70



Phonograph Bead Bracelet and Cassette Box


This bracelet is so cool and the cassette box it came in is sweet.  The card states that these bracelets are made from vulcanite, the same material that records were once made of.  How cool is that?!!  These bracelets were made by the girls at Landfall Freight.  Awesome!



Glue Compressor Stickers


These are cool stickers designed by Etsy artisan Ivonna Buenrosto.  I love these stickers. 


DIY Bookplate


They include a DIY item in every box and this is really cool and unique.  You can color it and glue it on your favorite book to make sure they know who it belongs to.


Tara's Take:  I really love this subscription.  I'm a fan of graphic novels and comics and it's so cool that the majority of the graphic novels and comics included in this subscription feature women and/or are illustrated by women.  That makes this subscription really unique and awesome.  This sub is definitely a keeper and I can't wait to see what's inside the December box.

Awesome!!  I recently put in a couple of orders to Book Outlet during the month of October. They had a 15% off sale and I went a little crazy.  OK, I went EXTREMELY crazy!  I have a book buying problem.  I know this.  I ended up ordering 30+ books! Most of these books are young adult or middle grade novels because I love books meant for younger readers.  I'm definitely not young anymore but I guess reading these books makes me feel young again or something.  I don't know. 

Graphic Novel Haul!

I still had some gift cards to use from my birthday so I went a little crazy on Amazon.  I love graphic novels so I ordered 13 graphic novels!  I definitely have a book buying problem.

Below are the graphic novels I ordered from Amazon:

Book Riot Horror Box!

I had to do it.  I couldn't help myself.  I had to order this box.  Book Riot released this awesome Horror Box filled with 4 spooky books and 3 bookish items.  This is a one time box that costs $100.  This box is still available (as of today).  It is a lot of money but I love horror and I love books so I impulsively purchased this box.
