Big Bad Wolf Preview Sale 2016 | Book Haul

Fun fact, I love places with books. Bookstores, book sales, libraries, anything! I think I got this from my dad. In my family, my dad and I are the only ones who love books. Every time we went to any mall that has bookstores, we will definitely drop by them. My dad is an ultimate bookworm. He has tonnes and tonnes of books, and he reads every single day. Books are his life, especially religious books. Every time there's a book sale nearby, we would go together and shop our heart out.


Okay, let's talk about me. After almost a year waiting, the Big Bad Wolf Book Sale is finally here! Going to this sale is a must for me. It's one of the places I call 'heaven on earth'. With 75% to 95% discounts, how can you even resist that? I love book sales such as Kuala Lumpur International Book Fair and Pesta Buku Selangor, but none of them can beat my love towards Big Bad Wolf Book Sale. I would go to the other book fairs with my dad, but for BBW, I'd go with my friends as they also enjoy it.

This year, for the first time in forever, I got a Preview Pass. As I said in my previous post, I pledged to Stop Buying, Start Reading on BBW's website, and luckily, I won one of the Preview Passes as they gave them out to 10 people for every 100 pledges. If you don't know, the Preview Pass lets you come to the sale one day before it officially starts. It started yesterday on December 9th, but I went there on the 8th. The pass admits 2 adults. I wasn't expecting it, but, Alhamdulillah, I was so damn happy when I received the email!

The BBW Preview Sale was lit. By the time I arrived, the cue was already so long. People were like camping outside the hall. But let me tell you, it was such a heaven. There are lots of great books, and the prices are more than affordable. I totally understand why there are people who stood in front of the main door by 7 AM.

Now let's move on to the books. I've bought a total of 11 books only. Yeap, only. Lots of people had their baskets and trolleys loaded with books, and I believe that those are more than 20 to 30 books. I mean, at Big Bad Wolf Book Sale, that's absolutely normal. My parents didn't let me buy that much because they want me to concentrate on my studies more by next year. Of course, I agreed. Well, honestly, 11 books are already a lot for me. I'm grateful enough.

Gosh, I talk too much. Let's get straight to the book haul. I picked up 9 fiction books, a non-fiction book and a notebook. The fictions that I got are mostly from the Romance, Young Adult and General Fiction sections. The non-fiction is from the Self-Help section, and the notebook is from the Arts section.


• The Geography Of You And Me by Jennifer E. Smith [link]
πŸ“š Genre: Young Adult
πŸ’Έ BBW Price: RM12
πŸ˜„ Comment: My friend read the series and she said they were great! The titles are just so cute, and the synopses too! So I decided to grab them. These are the 2 books from the Young Adult section. This is the #3 book of the series and it is hard-covered.

• This Is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E Smith [link]
πŸ“š Genre: Young Adult
πŸ’Έ BBW Price: RM10
πŸ˜„ Comment: This is the #2 book. I couldn't find the #1 one, which is The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight. I believe that there are more books in this series, but let me read these two first and make sure to enjoy them before I get the others. Plus, this one is not hard-covered like the other one.


Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell [link]
πŸ“š Genre: Romance
πŸ’Έ BBW Price: RM10
πŸ˜„ Comment: Here's the great Eleanor & Park. I saw lots of reviews for this book and everyone was saying that it's an amazing love story. I was so happy as this is one of the books I was looking for! I read this before, but only three to four pages, it was my friend's. By that, I bought this to finish where I stopped (or maybe just start all over again).

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell [link]
πŸ“š Genre: General Fiction
πŸ’Έ BBW Price: RM12
πŸ˜„ Comment: Another book by Rainbow Rowell! I wanted to get Landline as well, but I was too late. I actually saw it, hold it and read the synopsis, but I didn't take it and just walked away (how stupid). I thought I took it, but after a while, I checked what's in my basket and I noticed that I forgot to take it. When I came back, it was sold out. Fangirl wasn't there too.


The Girl You Left Behind by Jojo Moyes [link]
πŸ“š Genre: Romance
πŸ’Έ BBW Price: RM12 / RM10 (for Wolf Pack Members)
πŸ˜„ Comment: The first thing I thought when I walked into the hall was Jojo Moyes. I really enjoy the movie Me Before You, so I wanted to get her books as she's excellent with romance stories, but I only could find this one, and it is a hardcover book. There was actually One Plus One too, my friend got it, but it was sold out when I went to get it. Oh well, can't wait to read this one!

To All The Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han [link]
πŸ“š Genre: Romance
πŸ’Έ BBW Price: RM10
πŸ˜„ Comment: Ahhh, I can't believe I got this! This book of Jenny Han has been all around the media if you've ever noticed. This was the last one. Luckily, the guy who actually took it, put it back, so I quickly grabbed it. The #2 book, P.S. I Still Love You and #3 book, Always and Forever, Lara Jean wasn't there. Guess I have to get them at a regular bookstore then. Whatever, I'm still excited to read this one!


All She Wants by Jonathan Harvey [link]
πŸ“š Genre: Romance
πŸ’Έ BBW Price: RM10
πŸ˜„ Comment: I chose to start with this one first out of all these books I got from this year's BBW Book Sale. This is what I'm currently reading, and so far, it's so good! Jonathan Harvey is an award-winning comedy writer, and trust me, this book is hilarious! I will really buy more of her books if I enjoy this one.

You Had Me At Hello by Mhairi McFarlane [link]
πŸ“š Genre: Romance
πŸ’Έ BBW Price: RM10
πŸ˜„ Comment: This was also recommended by my friend! The synopsis is quite interesting. In fact, other than Young Adult, I also enjoy reading Romance books. At first, I wanted to read this one first, but I went for Harvey's book instead. This is the next book I'm going to read after I finish All She Wants


Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah [link]
πŸ“š Genre: General Fiction
πŸ’Έ BBW Price: RM10
πŸ˜„ Comment: Finally, I've been looking for this book! This is the #1 one of the series. I bought this because I already had the #2 book entitled Fly Away. I bought it at last year's BBW Book Sale, check it out here. I actually haven't read it yet because I'm waiting to buy this one. Can't wait to start!

Get Sh*t Done by Lauris Liberts [link]
πŸ“š Genre: Self-Help
πŸ’Έ BBW Price: RM8
πŸ˜„ Comment: This is the self-help book I'm talking about. It's full of good and motivational quotes! I love this kind of books, and I swear there were lots of books with great quotes. I don't really visit every section of genres at the BBW Book Sale, but the self-help section is a must.


Life Canvas: My Life - Pop Art by Parragon Books [link]
πŸ“š Genre: Art
πŸ’Έ BBW Price: RM5.30
πŸ˜„ Comment: This is the notebook that I bought. I love it! It is a tabbed notebook with sections for Notes, To-dos, Ideas, and The Best for categories such as music, books, movies, websites, restaurants, shops and miscellaneous. This is the perfect notebook for me, and I can't wait to start using it!


These are all the books I've bought! 😍

That's that! Those are all the 11 books that I got at Big Bad Wolf Preview Sale 2016. Overall, the sale was as marvellous as always. If you haven't been there yet, please don't miss the chance! The sale is damn crazy! The prices are 101% worth it rather than buying at a regular book store. The Big Bad Wolf Book Sale starts from December 9th until December 19th, opens 24 hours non-stop (254 hours in a total)! It's located at Malaysia International Exhibition & Convention Centre (MIECC) @ The Mines in Seri Kembangan, Selangor.

There goes my first experience attending the Preview Sale, and I hope to be there again next year, insya'Allah! Big thanks to Mr Black Paw, The Wolf who has selected me to win a Preview Pass. If you want a chance to win the pass next year, don't forget to stay in touch with the Big Bad Wolf by signing up for the Wolf Pack Membership and also, follow their social accounts!

  6. my first time going to BBW was in 2011. lepastu every year pergi. paling best yang big bad box tau sebab with RM99, you can fit as much book as you want in a box. ada lah dalam 20++ books for 99 ringgit je! and i still have books that i bought in 2011 that i haven't read yet. so guilty haha.

    and lovely books you got there! i love dystopian novels and adult romance. mcm eleanor & park or anything from john green tu mostly high school love kan but ok la kalau nak baca. bila dah besar ni taste in books dah lain lol padahal masa sekolah, Little Black Dress books tu la yang paling best! but they increase the price kan. dulu RM8 je mostly.
