Popular Book Fest

Last weekend I managed to visit the Popular book fest at the KL Convention centre in spite of thinking that I'd miss it and this is my loot! In actual fact I bought quite a number of children's books - gifts for Family Day in December but I also managed to get in some of my particular favourites. As you can see I have more than one YA books in my collection - something I'm beginnning to realise I enjoy reading, especially the ones  with paranormal themes. One good example is Switched by Amanda Hocking which tells the story of Wendy, a young Trylle princess who had lived all her life thinking she was different but never knowing why until she finds out that she was not even human and that she had been switched at birth to live with humans. 
The funny thing is I've always been fascinated by stories of fairies and anything magical and at the book fest I got all three books - the sequels being Torn and finally Ascend, the last in the series. Hopefully this will keep me entertained for some time.

I've never read Cathy Kelly before but since the books were too cheap to resist I decided to get them and try to read them later. But I did manage to find one Mary Balogh and one Georgette Heyer, both of which were way way  below the normal price.  The Georgette Heyer was only RM14.90, which was a real bargain because normally her books cost more than RM40. I got the Terry Prachett also at a big discount and felt good about it. And biggest find of all are the Mr Men books which I used to read to Rizal when he was two! I'll keep that for Wan's children later.

Those look like great finds Kat. I have heard good things about Amanda Hocking. I'm a fan of Georgette Heyer but haven't read The Foundling yet.
Enjoy your books!
