[BHE 193] Recent MPH Book Sale in Singapore (Part One of Two)

BHE

Myra here.

It’s my favourite day of the week – Sunday! Time for us to share the books that have found us over the past several weeks. And I am excited to share with you all my recent book finds from the MPH Book Sale a few weeks ago at the Expo. Truth be told, I wasn’t expecting the selections to be as good as they were.

Compared to the other book sales I have been to (see my loot from the Page One Book Sale here and here, and the recent SG Book Deals sale at Big Box), this one is a tad more expensive, but they do have more recent titles in their collection as can be seen in my loot below.

Young Adult

I was so thrilled to find these titles! Finally – I own them! The Screaming Staircase by Jonathan Stroud, The Whispering Skull by Jonathan Stroud. I kept looking for The Hollow Boy, but, alas, it was not meant to be.
