πŸ“š FEBulous February Book Haul πŸ“š

PhotoGrid_1457017862881
Hi.πŸ‘‹ Presenting my low-key book haul for the Love month!πŸ’•
Okay… so, these are actually from our Black Friday Sale Haul at http://www.Bookoutlet.com last year. Our dearest friend, Jovel, of @Travelthrubooks at Instagram helped us (together with Lei of @Leireads and Arra of @Arrabelreads) with our books. Super doooooper thanks to her friend’s mom who let us use her credit card deets.πŸ™ˆ It was our first time (Bookoutlet VirginsπŸ˜‚) so we really did have those butterflies in our tummies!πŸ™Š Other bookworms did some action-packed NINJA MOVES so I think and therefore conclude that they scored a really great and awesome deal.😊 These babies cost me around 600php ($13 to 14 USD) and the shipping fee from US to the Philippines is already included (dancing to the tune of Twerk it Like MileyπŸ‘ŒπŸ’ͺ🎢🎡) Can you imagine that? I never thought that BookOutlet sales are so BADASS!πŸ’• If I will purchase these books at our local bookstore, I have to pay the total amount ofΒ  approximately 1700php ($38 USD). I am one lucky mommah over here! I know… I know… πŸ˜‚πŸ˜†πŸ’ͺπŸ™ˆ
