Book Haul #33: I Regret Nothing (a.k.a. Powerbooks Book Lovers Sale Haul)

So today, after a post-Valentine’s celebration, I somehow ended up at the bookstore. And guess who impulsively bought 14 new books? This girl!

Despite the obviously rash hoarding, I regret nothing. Because you guys, I got all these awesome books for super cheap at the Powerbooks Book Lovers Sale!

book haul 33

First Love by James Patterson
Miracle by Elizabeth Scott
Sometimes It Lasts by Abbi Glines
Year of Mistaken Discoveries by Eileen Cook
Faking Normal by Courtney C. Stevens
Tease by Amanda Maciel
Unbreakable by Kami Garcia
Earthbound by Aprilynne Pike
Steadfast by Claudia Gray
The Ring and the Crown by Melissa De La Cruz
Winds of Salem by Melissa De La Cruz
City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare

Would y’all believe I spent just 1000 php (over 20$) for everything? I got each of the books for around 50-100 php and I couldn’t quite believe it myself because the titles I got were pretty new and the books were in perfect condition!

So if you’re from the Philippines, def check out the nearest Powerbooks in your area and catch the Book Lovers Sale! Last day is on the 18th! :)

    I’m from the Philippines but ohmygod why don’t we have Powerbooks in my place? And the titles you got are awesome! I’m jealous. Great haul! :)

      Aw that’s quite unfortunate. :( Thank you for checking out my haul. :D

    I was in powerbooks this afternoon and I bought three books for 225, because I got no budget and I didn’t that they’re on a HUGE sale. I Also bought James Patterson’s First love and two others, Unravel Me and And the mountains echoed. The sale was awesome because the books are not vintage titles, they’re the ones that are kind of familiar to js youngsters. I wish I had a lot of money to by the others that were already in my grasp but was taken away from me because of the budget. But anyway, I love the books that I’ve got and I wish I can stop by again when I have the time and money before the sale ends. ♡

    • Hazel @ Stay Bookish on February 15, 2015 at 11:02 am

      Hurrah for wonderful sales!! I so agree- it made me happy to see familiar titles on sale at Powerbooks. I’m hoping to go back soon too! :D

  4. Mel@thedailyprophecy on February 15, 2015 at 10:57 am

    Booksales are the best! I can never resist a good bargain. The ring and the crown has been on my list for a while now. I like the sound and the cover is pretty. City of Heavenly fire is huuuge.

    Happy reading :)

    • Hazel @ Stay Bookish on February 15, 2015 at 11:03 am

      Yess, The Ring and the Crown is gorgeous! Really hope the story is the same. And yes COHF is so big and intimidating ah! I’m terrified to read the ending, honestly!

  5. gab on February 15, 2015 at 11:13 am

    My goodness 100 pesos yung COHF OMG??

  6. Inah @ The Bibliophile Confessions on February 15, 2015 at 11:15 am

    Lovely lovely haul! I really wish I could still check the sale out! Hahaha.

    • Hazel @ Stay Bookish on February 15, 2015 at 11:28 am

      Thanks, dear! <3 I wish you could too! If you saw any titles on here you're interested in, just let me know! I might drop by Powerbooks again and I'll check if I can find you a copy. :)

  7. Olivia @ candid cover on February 15, 2015 at 3:06 pm

    Wow! That is an impressive book haul! Totally jealous ;)

  8. Mawa Mahima on February 15, 2015 at 3:09 pm

    So many good books there! (I think I say this every time I visit your blog, Hazel). :P
    City of Heavenly Fire…man I want that so bad. Currently reading City of Lost Souls and obviously I expect Clare to leave the book on a cliffhanger so I’ll have to scan the library shelves for this one (and if I don’t find it, always click reserve, right?)

  9. Nereyda @Mostly YA Book Obsessed on February 15, 2015 at 5:33 pm

    I really like that finished copy of Tease, it’s so prety. Enjoy your new books!

  10. bn100 on February 15, 2015 at 6:35 pm

    Which one are you going to read first?

  11. Kevin @ Tomebound on February 15, 2015 at 9:48 pm

    I LOVE THE RING AND THE CROWN! It’s like a High-Fantast Gossip Girl! I wished that I lived in Makati or Alabang! Oh well! Enjoy these fantastic books! :D

  12. Nova @ Out of Time on February 15, 2015 at 9:53 pm

    I love the money system. Because 100 dollars Canadian would be like 5000 of your money? [from what you said in your blog post haha] It’s really funny to me :P

    WHOA ALL THE BOOKS. I know that I got COHF for about 20 bucks alone so it’s awesome that you got all of that. What a bargain!

  13. Leigh @ Little Book Star on February 15, 2015 at 10:09 pm

    DAMN Just 1000 Pesos for all those books!? That’s a great deal! I would’ve done the same thing haha. I have some of the books on your haul, but I’ve only read 1 book which is Faking Normal. It’s a really good heavy contemporary read.

  14. Ana @ Butterflies of the Imagination on February 15, 2015 at 11:15 pm

    How do you find these deals?!? That is SO CHEAP! Book bargains are the book lover’s dream.

  15. La La in the Library on February 15, 2015 at 11:16 pm

    Geeze and I thought getting hardcovers from Book Outlet for $6 each (including shipping) was a bargin! You scored BIG TIME!

  16. Chanpreet on February 15, 2015 at 11:43 pm

    That’s a gorgeous haul for an amazing price!

  17. Nikki on February 15, 2015 at 11:47 pm

    OMG THANK YOU FOR SHARING!! And what an amazing book haul!! ♥ Ooooh I can never, ever resist books, especially when they’re on sale! Haha *flies to Powerbooks*

  18. Faith on February 16, 2015 at 12:35 am

    So jealous, at the moment! I need to live at the Phillipines. Yep, I’m moving.

  19. Kim @ Divergent Gryffindor on February 16, 2015 at 3:03 am

    So jealous of these hardbound copies! When I went there mostly only paperbacks were left.

  20. Laura @ canido52 on February 16, 2015 at 4:07 am

    Love it… great haul :-) nice to treat yourself any day! Happy reading

  21. Erin @ The Hardcover Lover on February 16, 2015 at 10:50 am

    Oh! You got Panic by Lauren Oliver! I really enjoyed that one!

  22. Shelumiel on February 16, 2015 at 12:02 pm

    Wow. SCORE!

  23. Anette Fabre on February 17, 2015 at 9:18 am

    Damn, looks like everyone has been to Powerbooks this week. I wish they’ll have another sale again! :)

  24. Laila BC on February 17, 2015 at 9:37 am

    UGH! not effin’ fair! how come we don’t have such kind of awesome sale in my bookstores here? great haul Hazel :)

  25. Alexa S. on February 17, 2015 at 12:13 pm

    HOLY COW! What an amazing bargain, Hazel! Makes me wish I were still in the Philippines a little, just so I could get awesome titles like this on sale too ;)

  26. Rosie // Rosie Reads on February 20, 2015 at 2:15 pm

    WHAAAAAAAAAA. *jaw drops* 14 books for $20… that’s so crazy awesome, I am super jelly. XD

  27. Amber on February 20, 2015 at 10:46 pm

    Wow! This Powerbooks sounds a-mazing. Makes me wish I lived in the Philippines. :) Your haul is amazing! Especially for the price. There’s no beating cheap books. I’ve been wanting to read Faking Normal and Tease.
