Just like the first book mail that I posted on the blog a couple of weeks ago, this one also has a story: During the first few weeks of quarantine, I saw someone post a photo of some of her books on Facebook’s Marketplace. It caught my attention because of Lauren Kate’s Passion and Rapture books because I have the first two books in the series and have not yet started reading it because I wanted to complete the whole series first. So I sent the seller a message and reserved the books.
During those weeks, I think most stores were still looking for ways to continue their business while practicing social distancing and by not requiring people to actually visit their stores. Also, all delivery businesses were closed as well. No Angkas, no Lalamove, no Grab, etc. The seller of these books was kind enough to reserve it under my name for almost two months, until there was actually a delivery service that delivers from her location to my boyfriend’s.
Along with Lauren Kate’s Passion and Rapture, I also bought Teardrop by the same author, and Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. I’ve only read Eleanor & Park and loved it, so I am really looking forward to this.
I still have other book mails that arrived last week and this week, so I’ll be writing about them in a different post. So stay tuned and stay safe!
