Welcome back to Reading, Reading, Reading!
Just under a month ago, during The Reading Rush, I placed a small order from Book Depository using TRR coupon code! I had never purchased from Book Depository before, but I have heard about it numerous times ever since I started this blog in 2013. Truthfully, I thought it was another “big-name” book retailer, and did not realize that they had a lot of books for discounted prices, and free shipping no minimum to Canada! While it took about three works for all of my books to arrive, I am so happy about what I received, and I look forward to purchasing books from them in the (distant) future!
The first book I purchased from Book Depository was His & Hers by Alice Feeny. This book actually arrived one week before the others did, even though it was the last one to ship (needless to say, the mail has been very unpredictable ever since COVID-19 began). I have never read any of Alice Feeny’s backlist titles, however, I was very intrigued by her newest release ever since I heard a snippet of the plot. Plus, Book Depository mostly ships out the UK editions of novels, and I absolutely love this cover!
The second book I ordered from Book Depository was You Should See Me In A Crown by Leah Johnson. I cannot recall the last time I read a YA (Young Adult) novel, however, this one has been getting such high praise from practically every one who has read it, and since they synopsis interests me, I thought I would give it a try! This novel is the first pick for Reese Witherspoon’s new YA book club, which is incredibly exciting!
The third book I ordered from Book Depository was A Nearly Normal Family by M.T. Edvardsson. I have been eyeing this book ever since it was published last year, and I was so happy to see a UK Paperback edition available for purchase! After opening the package, I was surprised to see how thick this book is, but I am sure I will be able to read it in no time!
The fourth and final book I purchased from Book Depository was Such A Fun Age by Kiley Reid! If you are active in the online book community, I am 99.99% sure you have already seen and heard of this novel. It has been getting some well-deserved hype, especially due to all of the tragic and heartbreaking events that have been happening in the world recently. I am really looking forward to reading this novel, and hope it lives up to my high expectations!
Those are the four books I purchased from Book Depository! I could not be happier with my purchase!
Good Night Book Owls!
P.S. Check out the gorgeous bookmarks that came with my order!!!

good pics! and, most of all, very nice use of words* I.E., “distant”
For some odd reason, I thought you’d like the use of that word!
Nice haul. I’ve never bought a book from them. I’ll have to check them out.
Looks like a great haul! I haven’t tried shopping from Book Depository yet.
