The Big Bad Wolf is Malaysia’s largest, coolest book sale, where brand-new books go on huge discounts (70%-95%)! A book that typically costs RM60 would be marked down to only RM8 at the Big Bad Wolf! Just how awesome is that? That’s the beauty of the sale, and it only comes around once a year.
Last year, I spent several hours perusing books and came out with 15 new novels. And this year, I went again. TWICE.
Mostly everyone at the sale — myself included — was on a mission. A mission to find good books. During my recent two trips on Sunday and Thursday, I bought a total of 40 books!
Oh boy. I felt like a kid in a candy store. The large exhibition hall was packed with books of all kinds. I lingered mostly around the fiction area, my eyes busily scanning the glossy titles for some of my favorite authors. I’m a fan of James Patterson, Kimberly McCreight, Gillian Flynn, Jodi Picoult and Emily Giffin.
But I grabbed some books from Lee Child, Sue Monk Kid and Harlan Coben so I could expand my reading circle to include other renowned writers.
James Patterson’s books are pretty intense, packed with heaps of edge-gripping moments of suspense. And every now and then it’s nice to unwind with a good chick lit, like Carole Matthews or Emily Giffin.
What are some of your favorite books? 🙂
