Hey Y'all Check Out My Book Haul!!!

It's Monday........

I'm here today to share what books I got over the weekend and to let you guys know what's in store for this week!!!

Books I Bought:

 (Click on Titles for the Goodreads description of each book)

Galilee by Clive Barker: I have a obsession over Clive Barker so any book I see by him I collect. I just have too. I have over 12 of his books :) 
Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige: the book store had these cute little miniature pamphlets that had an excerpt, the first 4 chapters, of Dorothy Must Die. Of course I took one, read it in 20 mins and was immediately sold. I had to wait 2 weeks for the store to get it in, which was a bummer, but I got it now :)
Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood: I've read so many great things about this author but have yet to read any of her books. Last month while browsing through TOP TEN TUESDAY list's for "Favorite x genre" I stumbled upon this book on Thoughts and Afterthoughts blog. I was immediately intrigued with the description. It sounds like something I like. Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Dystopia.....UNIQUE!
Dreams of Gods & Monsters by Laini Taylor: Y'all who are familiar with this blog and myself all know how very excited I was for the release of this novel AND YOU KNOW my ass got it the day it came out. It's so beautiful. I'm currently reading it now and reading very slowly. It's the final book in the Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy and my heart just can't take it. GODSTARS! I'm going to miss these characters :(
I was surprised when I came home with the book to find something special inside, check it out:

Look what came inside the book:
A signed picture of the beautiful blue haired Karou by the 
one & only author herself Laini Taylor!!!

  Books From the Library:

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas: I have been wanting to read this book for, like, EVER now. What has been stopping me? All these other amazing series that I keep running into. First  Daughter of Smoke & Bone, then Cinder, then Days of  Blood & Starlight and now Dreams of Gods & Monsters. I even have the paperback book of Throne of Glass sitting in my bookshelf, but I figured if I got the book from the library, in some mind reversal kind of way, it would get me to read this book before the due date, LOL! I think it's Genius, RIGHT!?!?!?!

Noggin by John Cory Whaley: I been curious about this book and even mentioned it on one of my Waiting on Wednesday posts. The book's debut was on April 8th, so I was happy to see that my Library actually got it in. Wooo Hooo!!! I've been reading a lot of fantasy lately so to change it up a bit I figured I go with this one. It sounds hilarious and the ratings are high. If you don't know what this book is about, definitely Look it up! Go ahead. Click on it's title above :)

What's going on in my Bookish World:

I just recently finished reading Days of Blood & Starlight and I will be putting up it's review later this week. 
It is phenomenal! 

Thankfully I finished DoB&S the day after Dreams of Gods & Monsters came out, 'cause you KNOW I jumped right on that and starting reading immediately! 
It's flippin amazing! If y'all haven't starting reading this series yet, I seriously recommend it! I can't believe I even let myself go so long without reading it! I only read this first book, like, 2 months ago. SO HAPPY IT DID! If not I'd be missing out on something so major!
Right Rachel Zoe? lol

What else is going on??? 
             Oh Yea! My father-in-law                                                                                                      
came over not too long ago and took a look at my bookcase, I mean REALLY took a look at it. Before he would just pass by it without even really glancing at it. So when he saw "really looked" at it, he realized that I am in dire need of a new one. So he started building me a new bookcase :) I'm so super excited about that and so are my books!! Thanks Dad! xo

Spring is definitely in the air down here in North Carolina, flowers are in bloom and the sunshine is shining.....

Hope y'all had a beautiful weekend!
Super BIhugs from my girls and Me!!!


  1. Such a great haul! I am so jealous that you are read Dreams of Gods and Monsters, it is not released till thursday here and then I have to wait for the library to get it. And the signed art work - too cool.

    Dorothy Must Die looks fab too.

    I am more likely to read library books than books I own too, thats why I have so many unread books because I can't stay away from the library. (it has nothing to do with me keep buying books nu-uh)

    Your girls are beautiful by the way - they must take after their mama.

    Have a wonderful week and keep enjoying the sun X

    1. Awwww that sucks about DofG&M! Hopefully when your library finally gets the book you don't have to wait long.
      and Thank you so much about my girls xoxox! YOU ARE TOO SWEET ♥
      BIG HUGS LOVE! xo

  2. Oh Dreams! I really hope the library gets it soon! I want it NOW! Maybe I should just go out and buy all three :) That Karou art is awesome!
    P.s. Dark Places was awesome, can't wait for the movie!

    1. Girl YES!!! I promise you won't be disappointed!!! Go get those books! ♥

  3. Man... I wish someone would come over to my house and build me a new book shelf. That would be pretty damn amazing! I wish my library would hurry up and get Dreams of Gods and Monsters. I mean, I should've started that book like yesterday!

  4. Lots of awesome sweetie :D I hope you will love everything that you got. <3 I haven't read any of these books, but curious about Dorothy Must Die ;p Happy reading. <3

    Isn't DMD beautiful? But that story itself, holy crap is it amazing! <3
