Book Haul July 2017 #3: Some of These Were Free I Swear

Okay so I should start by saying that the first three were $6 each or 3/$10

Animal Farm   The Great Gatsby   Crime and Punishment I love the covers on these older classic stories. What do you think?

I am remembering loving the Immortal Instruments series, and wanting to reread it but am not a huge fan of my ereader at the moment (it is an older model so slow, but why spend the money to upgrade it when that could buy more books). So this led to the next few purchases.

City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, #1)  City of Ashes (The Mortal Instruments, #2)  City of Glass (The Mortal Instruments, #3)

I found a used book store in the city, this is an amazing thing to me. Where I currently live I have the option of New Books or the Library. These next books were in brand new condition and less than half of cover price 🙂

The 5th Wave (The 5th Wave,...  The Infinite Sea (The 5th W... I haven’t heard much about this series, but for $20 for both why not?

Caraval  This has been on my to buy list forever, it was less than half cover price :O

Now I did say some of these were free, my library had a cart that said ‘Free to forever home’. There wasn’t much there but these two books seemed interesting.

Mr. Lynch's Holiday  Hide Me Among the Graves

July is over, So I can with all truth say no more books will be bought in July 2017!!

Please Follow My Blog to Continue Seeing My Bank Account Drain!

Comment Below if you have any recommendations for upcoming buys!

I hope you enjoy my escape and find one of your own – keep on reading. 🙂

Monday Melancholy

I am absolutely loving seeing all the bookish posts from book con/expo; however, this has become my go to time killing past time over the last few days and is putting a HUGE damper on my mood.

I live in Canada and am yet to find anything comparable to the book con/expo here. This is super depressing, as a self proclaimed book-addict, I would love the opportunity to attend something of this nature and share my love of books with other like minded people.

I’m wondering if any of my Canadian Bookish People know of anything of this nature in our neck of the woods. Comment below and let me know …

The Beginning of My Escape

​    Reading to Escape is my beginner blog. It will contain book hauls and my personal opinions and reviews of books I have read. Bare with me as the beginning will be rocky as I find my groove and finally my escape.
    My escape; reading is just that for me an escape, a way to release from the stresses of life to places better or worse. The books I read will depend on which place I need to escape to, a happy place or a place to remind me it could be worse.

    I am open to recommendations, at the moment my book recs come from Booktube (youtube book vloggers), other blogs and the sales reps at my local book store. I am pretty stuck on the young adult/new adult genre at this time, but open to anything super catchy that will suck me in.

    Yes; I am aware my writing is not perfect and please do not expect it to be, I did not go to school to be a writer or even close to the field. I am however a biotechnology technologist working as an environmental tech/ waste water operator in the private sector. With that said I will do my absolute best to keep everyone happy and myself sane. 

    I hope you enjoy my escapes and find some of your own – keep on reading. 🙂
