Hello world. I'm feeling very wistful today so I'm doing an easy post for NaBloPoMo that doesn't require much thinking: a haul! This is my fall haul, even though fall is not over yet. Let's get right to it. Firstly, I got another ARC from Penguin Random House, Girl in Pieces by Kathleen Glasgow. I got… Continue reading Fall Haul
Aloha! It's the end of my summer, so I thought I'd wrap it up with a haul of the books I managed to get over the last several months. The summer started out with a Haul of Excitement and Printer's Row Lit Fest. I also began a subscription to Uppercase, which arrived in June, July, and… Continue reading Haul & Goats
Welcome to my first ever unboxing post! In a previous post, I talked about some of the subscription boxes I was debating about starting, and I settled on Uppercase. I received my first box this month, and I am quite pleased with it. I say "box," but it really comes in this adorable cloth bag… Continue reading First unboxing: Uppercase June 2016!
Last weekend I went to Printer's Row Lit Festival in Chicago, which prides itself in being the biggest outdoor lit fest in the Midwest. This was my 3rd year attending, and I decided to just shop around rather than go to any author events. R.L. Stine was the winner of the YA award this year,… Continue reading Printer’s Row Lit Fest 2016!
It's time for a short haul! I went to the Barnes and Noble B-Fest yesterday to see if I could get some free stuff, and I did! I ended up wining the YA trivia challenge! I was only competing with one other person, and we tied with a score of 21, and then I won… Continue reading Haul of Excitement
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you BookCon 2016: This Saturday was the first BookCon I've ever attended, because it just so happened to be in my home city of Chicago this year! It was also my first ever ReedPop event (in case you don't know, ReedPop is the company that runs ComicCon and PAX). I've… Continue reading BookCon 2016
It's time for a haul! I have stocked up on books lately thanks to 2 sales in town: one at the public library (at which you stack your books and they charge you by the inch - adorable, right?), and then a special Scholastic book fair for teachers and librarians where everything was super cheap.… Continue reading 6 Used 7 New Haul
YAY! I'm calling this haul the "Surprise Haul" because it includes 2 books that were a nice surprise in the mail when I received them! I will start with those: First is The Love that Split the World by Emily Henry. This book came from Larkin at Wonderfilled Reads, who had a giveaway recently for reaching… Continue reading Surprise Haul!
I am at my parents' for the weekend and so I went to Half Price Books today to get rid of some books and naturally came out with some as well. I managed to weed out 16 books from my library. I came back with 4, and for some reason, they are all blue! This… Continue reading (Blue) Valentine’s haul!
The holidays are sadly over, but I'm working on my resolution to post more hauls. I hope you all stocked up on books this season. As for me, I have a relatively small haul this year, which is great, because I have way too may books I haven't read yet. Here is my holiday haul… Continue reading Holiday haul 2015
