Thrift Store Book Haul #11


With Blogoween in full swing, I decided to write a post on one of the most thrilling things… finding discounted books! Recently, I visited some of my favorite thrift stores in my area and found some great books to add to my collection! Here’s what I found:

  • The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein

The Giving Tree

The Giving Tree is one of my favorite pictures books, so I was so excited to find a copy at the thrift store. The jacket on this book was a little beat-up, so I’ll probably just leave it off when I add it to my library.

  • Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo 

Six of Crows (Six of Crows, #1)

Six of Crows is such a popular book that I’ve been interested in reading for awhile, so it was very exciting to find this at a thrift store. Usually, I don’t find books released within the past few years!

  • The Voyage of the Dawn Treader by C.S. Lewis

The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (Chronicles of Narnia, #3)

  • A Horse and His Boy by C.S. Lewis

The Horse and His Boy (Chronicles of Narnia, #5)

I’ve been wanting to read The Chronicles of Narnia series recently, so I’ve been collecting the books as I come across them in thrift stores. On this trip, I managed to find two more of the books!

  • Ruby and the Booker Boys: Brand New School, Brand New Ruby by Derrick Barnes

Ruby and the Booker Boys #1: Brand New School, Brave New Ruby

  • Ruby and the Booker Boys: The Slumber Party Payback by Derrick Barnes

Ruby and the Booker Boys #3: Slumber Party Payback

I haven’t heard anything about Ruby and the Booker Boys, but these two books immediately interested me when I came across them. First of all, they are printed under Candy Apple which I loved reading when I was younger (see the countdown of my favorites here). However, these books are for even younger readers which would be perfect for my classroom. Plus, I love finding more books with diverse characters to add to my classroom library!

  • The Titan’s Curse by Rick Riordan

The Titan's Curse (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #3)

  • The Battle of Labyrinth by Rick Riordan

The Battle of the Labyrinth (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #4)

Like with The Chronicles of Narnia, I’ve been really interested in finding all of the books in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. After this trip, I managed find the last two books I needed! I can’t wait to finally read through the rest of this series.

  • I Survived the Attacks of September 11, 2001 by Lauren Tarshis

The Attacks of September 11th, 2001 (I Survived, #6)

I’m always interested in finding historical fiction books for my classroom, so I was happy to find a book that covered a moment in history that I don’t have yet in my classroom library. I haven’t heard anything about this book or the I Survived series in general, but I’m hoping that is discusses this historical event well in a way that younger readers can understand.

  • Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt

Tuck Everlasting

  • Flush by Carl Hiaasen


  • The Amazing Days of Abby Hayes: Declaration of Independence by Anne Mazer

The Declaration Of Independence (The Amazing Days of Abby Hayes, #2)

I loved The Amazing Days of Abby Hayes when I was younger, so it brought back a lot of memories finding another book in the series at the thrift store!

  • Fantastic Mr. Fox by Roald Dahl

Fantastic Mr. Fox

  • The Twits by Roald Dahl

Besides Matilda and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, I haven’t picked up any other books by Roald Dahl. However, I know that they are well-loved and great books for younger readers.

  • How to Eat Fried Worms by Thomas Rockwell

How to Eat Fried Worms

I loved this movie when I was younger, so it made me happy to find the book it was based on at the thrift store. Hopefully, I enjoy the book as much as the movie!
