Another Book Haul?! Why Yes..yes it is

Hey y’all!

So yesterday I went to the library to grab a couple books to read over the month since I’ve been lately flying through books like a crazy person, and I needed some more books. So off to the library I went to grab more books and I thought I’ll share it with you.

Apartment Therapy: Complete + Happy Home

To start off this rocking book haul that talks about interior design (my weakness) and I never heard of Apartment Therapy till I got this book and had a little peek-through and started to get a lady-boner from what I saw and flipped through. And now I want an apartment so I can maybe get it photographed by the Apartment Therapy guys.

A Year in Desserts

Oh hello food. Or desserts. I mean delicious desserts that I really wanna make and eat right now. Because OMG flipping through this book makes me wanna make all of them and eat every single last one of them because they look soooooo good. I brought this for my mama so she can make something for thanksgiving, but I might actually make something from this book and post it real soon…

The Nerdy Nummies Cookbook: Sweet Treats for the Geek in all of Us by Rosanna Pansino

You’ve seen her on YouTube before-she has her own nerdy cooking channel and is sometimes always on IJustine’s channel, and she even had her own speical on the Cooking Channel. But yes, I just HAD to get Ro’s book-one because I wanna cook really badly and make all the things she has in this book. Two: because I hope she has the Turkish Delights recipe in here (if not then I’ll get it offline.)

The Glam Guide by Fleur de Force

Beauty vlogger Fleur de Force came out with this book about a couple years ago and I’ve always wanted to read it, but now that I found it I just had to snap it up and read it because it looks good and I did flip through it, and it looks good (though I just skimmed through it.)

Balancing in Heels: My Journey to Health, Happiness and Making it all Work by Kristin Cavallari

Remember her? Remember Kristin from Laguna Beach, then from Laguna Beach to The Hills when Lauren left? I do. And also, do you know her husband, Jay Cutler, who plays for the Miami Dolphins? Yeah that Kristin. She wrote a book and I can’t wait to read it because I’ve been wondering what she’s been up to since the last time we saw her.

Beauty Rules by Bobbi Brown

Soooooo…………does anyone know how to do their makeup really well? Anyone? Well how about any beginners out there *raises hand* anyone? Anyone? Well in all realness, I’m terrible with makeup-the only thing I have close to it are lipsticks and a Stila In the Light Palette (which I am gonna get something else real soon to replace it) and I wanted to pick it up to see what tips I can pick up and maybe use in my life one of these damn days…

A Very Long Book Haul

Hey y’all!

So sorry that I haven’t posted anything in two months-school started and things started slipping my mind since I’m now a graduate of GMC and is now looking at four year colleges so I can be an English Major (right now, Georgia State University is looking mighty good right now, including Emory University….but I’m still looking and oddly, I’m thinking about actually going to school downtown….and also I’m looking at Clark Atlanta University) and I’ve accuired some books over the two months and I thought I’d share it with you guys.

105_1303

All in Good Taste by Kate Spade New York

So I LOVE Kate Spade New York (even though they’re bloody expensive and I have to drool at their purses and shirts) but All in Good Taste is honestly beautiful. I love the typography, the photos, even the drawings they have that just makes the book more special-they even have recipes that sound good, like cheese fondue (I can’t cook, so reading the recipes makes me want to learn how to cook and actually maybe one day have friends over to enjoy the food).

105_1304

How to be Parisian Wherever You Are: Love, Style, and Bad Habits by Anne Berest, Audrey Duncan, Caroline de Maigret and Sophie Mae

I’ve always wanted to read this book-this book has been on my TBR for a very long time when it came out and I’m finally reading it. It’s a really a good book (a bit of some spoilers for my book review coming soon) and it does have some advice and really good photogenic pictures.

105_1305

Lauren Conrad: Celebrate by Lauren Conrad

Ahhh Lauren, LC, the girl I watched when Laguna Beach was on, then you went to The Hills and from the Hills you’ve written two book series, and now you’re writing self-help/ideas books, like Beauty and now Celebrate. I’m going to read you when I get done with Kate Spade or the Parisians, because you have great style and I love the way you write and explain things. Also I am going to buy the rest of your books one day.

105_1306

Williams-Sonoma: The Best of Thanksgiving: Recipes and Inspiration for a Festive Holiday Meal by Williams-Sonoma

Guys…THANKSGIVING IS COMING. Even though the stores are skipping pass this wonderful holiday (why stores WHY), this book talks about the elegance of Thanksgiving (well to me it is) and it has a bunch of recipes (like the rest of the books) and I can’t wait to read you as well.

105_1308

Perfectly Matched: a novel in the Blue Willow Series by Maggie Brendan

I’ve read this first book of the Blue Willow Brides series and just loved it, loved it so much that I wanted to read more of them. And then I found this one at the library and I just HAD to get it. Its the last book anyway but I don’t care-I WANT TO READ IT.

105_1309

The Mirror Crack’d from Side to Side: A Miss Marple Mystery by Agatha Christie

Soooo….true story….I’ve never read an Agatha Christie novel. I’ve listened to the audiobook of the Murder on the Orient Express (and I will see that movie, dammit) and that was it. Then I picked this one up and I was interested in it…though I’m still confused how the girl died by drinking something. that wasn’t meant for her. No spoilers please I’m still reading this and figuring it out.

105_1310

Servant of the Bones by Anne Rice

My second Anne Rice novel that I haven’t read yet, but it might be next year when I read it, along with the other books that are on my long TBR list. Servant of the Bones sounds like a really good book, especially when it deals with an angel.

105_1311

The Vampire Diaries: The Fury and Dark Reunion by L.J. Smith

Even though the show spawned eight seasons, I refuse to watch it, even though right now I’m currently watching the spinoff the Originals on Netflix. I like the book version better, mainly because I can imagine things in the book instead of picturing the show version of the book…even though I have a Stefan bag (#noshame-that was back when the show came on and it was really good).

105_1312

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling

Never owned a copy of the book until now. That is all.

105_1313

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

I’ve seen the movie but I never ever read the book before-until now. I’m glad I grabbed this version of Jane Eyre and I will read this one along with Wuthering Heights soon..really soon.

105_1315

Bridget Jones’s Diary by Helen Fielding

I’ve read this book once-just once-and I DNFed it. Now I’m going to read it again, mostly because this book got be back writing in diaries again, even though they’re online and everyone can read them. I have seen the movie and it was really funny, and I’ve always wanted to read the books too.

105_1317

Interview with the Vampire by Anne Rice

Ahh, Louis…such whining, Louis….are you tired of listening to this? I’ve been listening to that for 400 (I think) years now…
 
Oh hello nostalgia, my old friends Louis, Lestat and Claudia. I’ve missed you since I’ve seen the movie when I was young, and now I have you in book form so I can read you over and over again, as long as I wish. You would be a Halloween book, but any year and any day to me I’ll get to read you and enjoy you, and join you in your adventures.
So those are all the books I’ve brought (and currently reading and I think I wrote that Lestat quote wrong) that is on my TBR list and that I’m going to read really soon once I get done with the first three books (Kate Spade, Parisian and Agatha Christie) and also I’m going to posting up a bunch of book reviews soon for The Assassin’s Blade and Exlie while doing some transferring to schools and also doing college tours of the schools so yay and also go to my personal blog (rebellereine) where I’m going to post things about my life and thoughts and more things about D&D!!!

Fantasy Book Haul

105_1284

Hey y’all!

So I didn’t have a D&D game last week (or this week) so I went to Barnes and Nobles to get me some books because I was in a book slump and I was in a fantasy mood, so I went and got these amazing books that I know that I’m going to love.

105_1286

The Assassin’s Blade: The Throne of Glass Novellas by Sarah J. Maas

I’m a HUGE fan of Sarah J. Maas ever since I’ve read Throne of Glass (if you haven’t seen my review, click here  and here to read them!) and I’ve always wanted to read more of her books, so I picked this one up-and I’m currently reading this book right now and I LOVE IT already.

105_1287

Crown of Midnight: A Throne of Glass Novel by Sarah J. Maas

Just like the Assassin’s Blade, once I get done reading that one I’m going to get started reading this one (okay, maybe after my third re-read of Throne of Glass?) because I can’t WAIT to read more about Celeana and her friends’ adventures.

105_1288

The Legend of Drizzt Book II: Exile by R.A. Salvatore

IT TOOK ME SO LONG, BUT I FINALLY GOT SOME R.A. SALVATORE NOVELS. AWE YISS.

tumblr_inline_mh1s6urMUC1qjijca *Luke Bryan gif needed

And even though this is the second novel of the Legend of Drizzt series, I’m already planning on getting all of the books so I can read them all.

105_1290

The Legend of Drizzt Book III: Sojourn by R.A. Salvatore

MORE DRIZZT!!!! I got the third book, and all I need now is the first book and the rest of the series and then I’m good, because I love reading all of Drizzt’s adventures (if you wanna read the reviews, click here and here to read them!!) and I will be getting more of these series too!

Book Haul-5/15/17

Hey y’all!

105_1214

Last week I went into Ollie’s with my mother (also, to all the mothers out there, happy mother’s day) and I found me four books-three fantasy and one non-fictional one-and I think I made a good choice because two books are books that are part of the series I swore I’d never read, a book from a series I really wanna read, and a nonfiction novel about a lot of hotels owned by a certain hotel family. You know who I’m talking about…so let’s get started on the book haul!

105_1215

City of Ashes: Book Two of the Mortal Instruments novel by Cassandra Clare

This is the second novel of the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare, and to tell you the truth….I wanted to read more of this series. Though she’s currently writing more of the Shadowhunter series and it’s on Freeform right now, I want to read the books before I read Lady Midnight and her new book coming out. Also, I need to pick up Clockwork Princess and my Infernal Devices series would be complete (though I would love the original book cover, I’ll deal with the new ones)

105_1216

City of Heavenly Fire: Book Six of the Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare

This book is the last and final book of the Mortal Instruments series, and honestly this is my favorite cover of the Mortal Instruments novels that I like (I loved the old covers of these books, honestly…) and just…just look at the cover. So beautiful and pretty, though the new ones are alright…

105_1218

Gathering Darkness: Book Three of the Falling Kingdom series by Morgan Rhodes

Oh hello book series I’ve always wanted to read since I keep seeing it on Instagram and everywhere else I can find it. Along with many YA Fantasy novels (Throne of Glass series, A Court of Thorns and Roses series) this book is way on the list of books I wanna read and collect. But look at the cover though-so beautiful. Also, it’s giving me hella inspiration for my rouge character I play in D&D….

105_1219

The Hiltons: The True Story of an American Dynasty by J. Randy Taraborrelli

So this is a nonfiction novel on the Hilton family-because I’m honestly a sucker for anything that’s about history…and fashion….and dynasties…..because honestly, if Scatter My Ashes in Bergdorf’s was still on Netflix, I would be watching it all the time…but it’s not so I’ll have to buy it and own it myself.

Mini Book Haul

So I was in a deep book slump when I couldn’t even finish reading Shadow Spell by Nora Roberts. So I went to Barnes and Nobles to find me some books-and I found me two perfect ones that might help me get over my little slump.

104_0401

I’ve always wanted to read Grimm’s Fairy Tales so bad (I have no idea why) and I missed reading Melissa de la Cruz’s books, so I had to pick up the Isle of the Lost, which turns out to be a book based off the Descendants movie on Disney Channel (and book two, Return to the Isle of the Lost, is out now and I’m going to get that book so I can have a bookathon wit these two books.”

Mini-Book Haul

104_0362

Hey y’all!

Last week, after I found out that I’m graduating (if you wanna read more-go to my personal blog @rebellereine) I brought a couple bookish things (actually it’s more of two books and a diary) annnd if you wanna know what I got, carry on reading.

104_0363

Moleskine Classic Notebook, Large, Plain, Black, Hard Cover 

I brought this on Amazon because I’ve never owned a Moleskine before and I have no idea why I brought it. I am going to use it (just still in the plastic) but I need help to figure out what to do with it, though I think I’m just gonna use it as a random diary to write things down like notes for class and things like that.

104_0364

A Storm of Swords (A Song of Ice and Fire, #3) by George R.R. Martin

It’s that time of year again…where I do my yearly read of George R.R. Martin’s Game of Thrones series. Now I haven’t been watching the current season of GoT (blame school) but since I’ll have time, I’ll be reading this (after I get done reading Cyndere’s Midnight) and watching the show as well, since this book is basically season three of the show.

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass: by Lewis Carroll (150th Anniversary Edition)

It took me….almost half my life….to own this book ever since I watched the Disney movie. And now that I’m 24 years old, I finally own Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass-and its the 150th Anniversary Edition! I’m so happy to have this edition and I will read it this year…or next year….IDK. BUT IT’S REALLY BEAUTIFUL AND I’M GLAD I HAVE IT.

  1. Blood Lines by Tanya Huff-I really hate the cover of this one. But honestly I used to watch the Lifetime show so I decided to pick this up.
  2. Cyndere’s Midnight by Jeffery Overstreet-never read one of Jeffery Overstreet’s works, so I thought I picked this up. Also…the cover’s just pretty.
  3. The Wicked, a Vampire Huntress novel by L.A. Banks-I used to read her books when I was in high school, then I had to get rid of them 😦 But I’m going to collect and read all of them, just like I’m going to with the Laurell K. Hamilton novels.

  1. Spun by Sorcery (Sugar Maple, #3) by Barbara Bretton-read this, loved it, already reviewed it. Five out of five Stars for me.
  2. Deeply Devoted, a Blue Willow Brides novel by Maggie Brendan-I don’t read books like this, but I’m currently reading it right now and it’s really good, actually.
  3. The Royal Diaries: Lady of Ci’iao Kuo by Laurence Yep-now I’ve read this book when I was in Elementray School/when I was a kid, and I decided to pick this up because A.) I’m a huge history nerd and 2.) THE COVER THO.
  4. Nimona by Noelle Stevenson-Now I’ve seen this all over booktube and everyone seem to like it, so I’m going to give it a chance.
  5. John Contastine: Hellblazer-Just the cover got me. And yes-I’m going to read it. Because he was on Arrow. Jus’ sayin’.
  6. Little House on the Prairie: By the Shores of Sliver Lake by Laura Engalls Wilder-never read her books neither. So this is the first time for me reading this-or picking this up. But I have a feeling that I’m going to enjoy it.
