Catch Of The Day – RM5 Fiesta 2016

I can’t sit still when I knew that the Popular RM5 Fiesta has made a comeback in September. I could never in the world miss this event!

My sci-fi pile has grown ever since I delved into that genre, I was hyperventilating (almost) when I found Pathfinder series — HARDCOVER!! — alas they only have book 2 and 3, so I have to buy book 1 separately to complete the collection.

Picked up scattered Hitchhiker’s guide too — hoping one day I could complete the collection.

Oh and I terribly regretted not buying the whole series of Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments in the MPH sale few months ago… thus I just grabbed the only book that’s there 😥 Secretly hoping again to complete yet another collection.

Here’s my treasure loot *grinning from ear to ear* ❤

Catch Of The Day – Book Haul While I Was Away

I couldn’t resist whenever there’s an MPH Warehouse Sale. As I remembered there were less crowd in the sweltering hot afternoon and the place was only powered by electrical fans.


Despite the heat that made browsing uncomfortable, I kept digging looking for treasures from the book pile.

Chinese books were scattered all over but I had fun searching for them because at a 90% discount, these books were the cheapest I’ve came across any sales!

Super delighted to have found especially Japanese to Chinese translated literature!

Catch Of The Day – Holiday Book Haul


It’s  a little late but here’s my catch of the day from 2 weeks ago. Books I’ve gotten from the Big Sale and Flash Fiction Sales.

Top down:

  • Last Chance Angel — Alex Gutteridge
  • The 57 Lives of Alex Wayfare — M.G. Buehrlen

I just realized I bought a 3rd in the series for “In the Mouth of the Whale”. Uh oh… not the first time I did this but looks like I got to scout for the rest of it before I start reading.

Catch Of The Day — RM5 Fiesta Book Haul



Catch of the day! Here are books I got from the RM5 Fiesta book sale 2 days ago.

  • The minute I walked in I spotted Clare Vanderpool’s Navigating Early. Having read her awesome first book Moon Over Manifest, I’m thrilled to find her second book.
  • Too happy to unearth Maeve Binchy’s books, been searching for her work for ages. And getting her debut novel Light a Penny Candle is amazing!
  • Amy Tan’s book is a signed copy, how could I not get that???
  • Two Michael Ondaatje’s book added into my collection. After reading The English Patient I wanted to read more of his novels.
  • Hit the Ground Running has a very interesting blurb for a non-fiction, can’t wait to get started.

I’m off to read more books, see you later and thanks for reading ❤
