Well this is going to be a big post haha. I received a $40 Amazon gift card as a gift recently at work, and I finally got to use it! I made this order on April 29, and it finally arrived at my house on May 7. (If would have been here earlier if I had used my mom’s Amazon account, but, it’s fine. There are reasons I didn’t and I was ok with waiting…for the most part.)

So, four of these items are just things I wanted/needed, and three of them are very personal. I will talk about two of these items more than the other, because the other is going to be used for a very special reason. Maybe one day I’ll share what it’s for, but, right now? I’m not sure I want to, so, I’ll keep the reason for it to myself. 🙂

So the first item is a box of 44 cards of Proverbs to color in. For Christmas this past year, my mom bought a shared gift for all of us of blessings to color in, and I really enjoyed them, so, when I was making this order, I decided to get the Proverbs one, especially after going through a few personal things. This box is super pretty, and the cards are really nice. My cards, though, seem to have been cut oddly when they were made, so there were pieces falling off and the edges aren’t PERFECT, but, that’s ok. I’ll still enjoy coloring them. I’m thinking about getting trading card sleeves to get these into my binder of coloring pages, in order to keep them safe once they’ve been colored (or I’ll leave them in the box, lol. I don’t know yet.)

This one is a Copic Marker Doodle Pack! I’ve bought one of these before, and honestly love them! Copics are such great markers, even though they’re expensive! This one is the Turquoise pack, and it includes Cool Shadow, Mint Green, Atyou Spica glitter pen, and a gray Copic multiliner pen. These are going to be awesome for journalling and drawing in general!

OK, so, this is the one that’s got a special reasoning behind it, and I’m keeping that to myself, but I wanted to show the journal itself, because it’s super pretty. I have a pink one like this with Matthew 19:26 on it, and I’m going to be using that one to write down Bible verses I want to remember. This one is going to be used alongside it at times, but for a very private reason. I may talk about it more one day, but, right now, it’s being kept for me to know. :3

This one is a illustrated devotional for women. I picked this one out because it looked very pretty and the pictures of pages I saw on Amazon looked lovely. I think it’ll be something great to do each night before bed, especially since I have a small set of coloring pencils I can use with it.

This item was more of a silly one, but I ordered one pack of Animal Crossing Amiibo Cards haha. Those are the six I got, and one is A PENGUIN. I’m going to have him move into my New Leaf town soon!! 😀

Finally, I got a new umbrella. Mine was a cheap little one from Walmart, and it got really beat up during our last bout of rain and wind two weeks ago. So I bought a stronger one! 🙂 I love the flower on top of it too!

So that’s everything I got this time. I’m really happy with everything, and I’m glad to finally have the important things I had been waiting for. 🙂

I got six books this time, which is about normal for me because I don’t like to spend tons of money just on books, haha. This order was $25.25, and I’m really impressed with what I was able to find and purchase!

The first book I got was the Uzumaki Naruto artbook. This book is filled with large scale images of various Naruto chapter opening images and volume covers. It goes through the first 27 books, and everything is so beautiful. It also has an interview with the author, Masashi Kishimoto, which is in Japanese! I didn’t think this was really the Japanese version, but it is! I was so surprised, and it’s great because I can actually read Hiaragana and a bit of Katakana! I can practice reading with this book!

The next book I purchased was the first volume of Bleach. Yes, I know Bleach just ended in Shonen Jump, but I’ve never read it and I became very interested in it after watching a few episodes on Netflix. Despite this being a used book, it is in PERFECT condition. It looks like it’s brand new and I love that, because I try to be very careful with my manga!

I have to put these two together because of what they are. Volumes 26 and 27 of Naruto, the ending of the first part of the story (I can’t really call it half when the series spanned 73 volumes [including the spin-off about sarada uchiha]). I love this series, it’s definitely my favorite manga, and now that I’ve bought these two volumes, I’m only missing THREE from the first part, and I really hope I can get those as a 3-in-1 either for my birthday or Christmas this year. Then I’ll just be missing some from the next part of the series! (I’ll need to do a post about that once I have everything!)

The next book is Ophelia by Lisa Klein. I read this book a long, LONG time ago, when I was in ninth grade I believe, and I DEVOURED it, I read through it so fast. I fell in love with the story. The story is about Ophelia from the Shakespeare play Hamlet. It’s told from her point of view and details before the play, her falling in love with Hamlet, the events of the play, and afterwards. It’s so beautiful, I love it so much. I highly suggest it. I can’t wait to read it again.

Finally, I got the Pokemon Black Version and Pokemon White Version Official Strategy Guide! The Fifth Generation of Pokemon is my second favorite Pokemon generation, and being able to find this in such great condition for only about $4 was so great! I’ll be using this as I do my Nuzlocke on my Instagram (which I need to get back to), especially so I can see what Pokemon are around me (it’s been a while since I played through White, lol)!

Well, that’s this Thriftbooks haul! I hope to have another soon. I have a $5 credit, and I’ll be getting some kind of discount on my birthday I believe (should have a Hot Topic haul around that time because of a birthday gift from them as well). I hope you guys enjoyed this post, and hope you’ll take advantage of Thriftbooks!
