October Book Haul

So many good books have been released this fall, I don’t even know where to begin! I still haven’t been able to get my hands on Rainbow Rowell’s new book Carry On or George R. R. Martin’s Knight of the Seven Kingdoms, and don’t even get me started on how I don’t own the illustrated Harry Potter edition yet.

But regardless of all that I did purchase some new books that I am very excited about

So let’s jump straight in

20151016_102302
Six of Crows
by Leigh Bardugo
I am so excited to pick this book up, I’m currently reading the Grisha trilogy and after that I still have a stack of books I’d like to get through before October is over so I’m not sure when I’m going to read this, but I hope it’s soon.

Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard book 1 The Sword of Summer
by Rick Riordan

I’m honestly more excited to read this than I am to finish Percy Jackson or to start the Heros of Olympus series. I love Norse mythology, plus you know, Thor and Loki. (Insert heart eyes here)

Ice Like Fire
by Sarah Raasch
Yay! I really liked Snow like Ashes so I’m excited to read this…again not sure when its going to happen but I hope soon

The White Rose
by Amy Ewing
Again already read it since it was a pretty short book but I don’t plan on posting a review. I just don’t really have much to say about it, I didn’t love it, but I didn’t hate it, at the end I felt “meh” about it so I don’t see a point in reviewing it.

Happily Ever After
by Keira Cass
I was so excited to hear that the Selection novellas were being published in a bind up and I had to have them.

Illuminae
by Amie Kauffman and Jay Kristoff
I don’t have the words to describe how excited I was to receive this. There are no words. It’s a beautiful masterpiece!!

Unpopular Opinions Book Tag

I’m back with another tag! Thank you, Dee, from The Bookish Khaleesi for tagging me in this! I’m excited to do this one, but it was definitely one of the harder ones I’ve done.

A POPULAR BOOK OR SERIES THAT YOU DIDN’T LIKE

RubyRed 12637458119472bd331d0d038c9f01cadf3710c6

Ruby Red by Kristen Gier

I did not like this series at all and I read so many positive reviews from it, a couple booktubers I like blurbed positive things about it so I read the whole trilogy and hated it. I just couldn’t get into it, Gwen annoyed me the whole time and I just felt like there wasn’t much to the story, it focused too much on the romance and I wanted more time travel.

A POPULAR BOOK THAT EVERYONE HATES BUT YOU LOVE

7735333

Matched by Allie Conde

I really liked this book, as the trilogy went on my enthusiasm dwindled down, I would like to give it a reread sometime soon. I’ve seen quite negative reviews almost more than I’ve seen good ones, but I liked it.

A LOVE TRIANGLE WHERE YOUR SHIP DID NOT SAIl

91cvPamvpeL

I’m at a bit of a loss of who to say, most of my ships are pretty much canon, I think the only one I can say is Celeana and Chaol, BUT I haven’t read Queen of Shadows yet so I don’t know what happens so please don’t tell me

A POPULAR GENRE THAT YOU HARDLY REACH FOR

Horror. If I think a book is going to scare me, I will not read it.

A BELOVED CHARACTER YOU DIDN’T LIKE

8235570_f520

Sansa Stark from Game of Thrones. I cannot stand her, she just annoys the hell out of me!

A POPULAR AUTHOR YOU CAN’T GET INTO

Ransom Riggs
Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children was a DNF from me, I couldn’t get into it and I didn’t care how the book ended

A POPULAR BOOKS SERIES YOU HAVE NO INTEREST IN READING

Anna-dressed-in-blood-cover

This is a hard one for me, there not much that I won’t read. But if I have to choose one I’m gonna go with Anna dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake

AN ADAPTATION YOU LIKE BETTER THAN THE BOOK

theperksofbeingawallflowere1349280062824

The Perks of being a Wallflower

Don’t get me wrong I liked the book but I love the movie


Who to tag?

I have no idea

I think I’m gonna go with my usual cop-out and say that if you want to do this, go for it! I tag you!


So let me know if you agree or disagree if any of my answers.

October Loot Crate unboxing

20151020_124221

What time is it?
Lootcrate time!!
Woot woot!!!

If you don’t know what Lootcrate is it’s a monthly subscription box full of fun geek and gamer gear. A monthly subscription is 13.95 plus shipping and handling which is 6 dollars. So for 20 bucks a month you can’t really beat it, my favorite one was in February and that books theme was Play, and in that book they sent me a paperback copy of Ready Player One and it was awesome,
Loot Crate

I feel the need to add a disclaimer saying that this completely unsolicited, they did not ask me to do this, and I’m sure that they don’t even know about this post, this is just something that I wanted to do.

Coco’s Barkbox unboxing

Wow, I tried to say that title 5 times fast and I couldn’t do it. It just wasn’t going to happen

Anyhoo

My puppy Coco gets a Barkbox every month so I figured I could post something on here for it.
Why not?

20151020_123900

Cocos a bit of a brat and wouldn’t let me get a nice picture of her with the box

20151020_123934

If her tongue wasn’t out then she was blurry, there was no in between

20151020_124030 20151020_124024

These toys are so adorable!! I love the little cat ninja!
And does the little monster remind anyone else of Ugly Dolls? I love those things

So I gave Coco those toys around 12:30 p.m…its about 2:00 p.m. now…I going to predict that all the stuffing will be torn out of both toys by 3:00 p.m.

20151020_124057

They also included these little treats, usually she doesn’t like the treats that they include but I think she inhaled that little rawhide in about 5 minutes.

Anyways, that’s it for the Barkbox unboxing, I’ll be back later for a Lootcrate boxing!

I spy with my little eye

A present for a Miss Cassidy Jade at my front door!

MY GOD THIS BOOK IS BEAUTIFUL!!

I cannot get over how much work and effort went into creating this book its just stunning with its plastic dust jacket and the beautiful hardcover!

20151020_123809

look at those end pages! Just the appearance alone is a majestic work of art!
I can’t wait to dive into this book. It’s going to be phenomenal.

Seriously I almost wish but at the same time I’m glad, there’s no footage of me opening this package, lots of squealing and fangirling 🙂

The Rose Society review

20151016_102122The Rose Society
by Marie Lu
Hardcover
Published October 13th 2015
395 pages
my rating: 5 out 5 stars

Synopsis:
Once upon a time, a girl had a father, a prince, a society of friends. Then they betrayed her, and she destroyed them all.

Adelina Amouteru’s heart has suffered at the hands of both family and friends, turning her down the bitter path of revenge. Now known and feared as the White Wolf, she and her sister flee Kenettra to find other Young Elites in the hopes of building her own army of allies. Her goal: to strike down the Inquisition Axis, the white-cloaked soldiers who nearly killed her.

But Adelina is no heroine. Her powers, fed only by fear and hate, have started to grow beyond her control. She does not trust her newfound Elite friends. Teren Santoro, leader of the Inquisition, wants her dead. And her former friends, Raffaele and the Dagger Society, want to stop her thirst for vengeance. Adelina struggles to cling to the good within her. But how can someone be good, when her very existence depends on darkness?

Bestselling author Marie Lu delivers another heart-pounding adventure in this exhilarating sequel to The Young Elites.
