FGH: Found, Grabbed & Hauled is basically IMM – rebranded. Like the title said, this post highlights books that I found, grabbed and purchased this week. Includes bookish finds from second hand shops, bookstores, eARCS (Netgalley & Authors/Publishers) and anything book related.

Hello guys and here we are again for another round up of what was purchased for the week. In spite not having enough moolah to shop around for books since Christmas is just around the corner, I couldn’t stop the urge to go to my favorite secondhand store to browse if they had good books this week. I am glad I didn’t pass because I found goodies that I am totally excited about. Every book was below 100Php (less than $3) and two of which are great finds since some are part of my to buy list.

Wake and The Summer I Turned Pretty are books that I am glad I found but would have never bought brand new. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer is a book I am curious about since it got mixed reviews, let’s see what I’ll think about it after I am done. Elixir on the other hand I was all giddy and bouncy because I wanted this for sometime now, just haven’t got the time to really order one online - glad I didn’t. I found it like in the inner most corner of the top most shelf and I saw this and I was like “gimme, gimme, gimme!”. This was a great steal for less than $3, in perfect condition.

Title: Wake
Author: Lisa McMann

For seventeen-year-old Janie, getting sucked into other people’s dreams is getting old. Especially the falling dreams, the naked-but-nobody-notices dreams, and the sex-crazed dreams. Janie’s seen enough fantasy booty to last her a lifetime.

She can’t tell anybody about what she does they’d never believe her, or worse, they’d think she’s a freak. So Janie lives on the fringe, cursed with an ability she doesn’t want and can’t control.

Then she falls into a gruesome nightmare, one that chills her to the bone. For the first time, Janie is more than a witness to someone else’s twisted psyche. She is a participant.

Title: The Summer I Turned Pretty
Author: Jenny Han

Belly measures her life in summers. Everything good, everything magical happens between the months of June and August. Winters are simply a time to count the weeks until the next summer, a place away from the beach house, away from Susannah, and most importantly, away from Jeremiah and Conrad. They are the boys that Belly has known since her very first summer–they have been her brother figures, her crushes, and everything in between. But one summer, one terrible and wonderful summer, the more everything changes, the more it all ends up just the way it should have been all along.

Title: The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer
Author: Michelle Hodkin

Mara Dyer doesn’t think life can get any stranger than waking up in a hospital with no memory of how she got there.

It can.

She believes there must be more to the accident she can’t remember that killed her friends and left her mysteriously unharmed.

There is.

She doesn’t believe that after everything she’s been through, she can fall in love.

She’s wrong.
