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?

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

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

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.

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 🙂

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.

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?

  • Come up with your own 5 questions for your nominees.

Michalah asked the same questions from Giselle in the post she was nominated in so without further ado:

  1. WHAT BOOK DID EVERYONE LIKE AND YOU HATED?

    Doon2

    I chose Doon by Carey Corp and Lorie Langdon

    I did not like this book at all and I had heard that it was pretty good and to check it out because I would really like it. But I hated the characters so much there wasn’t anything like able about Veronica or Mackenna and I just thought that too many convenient things would happen.

2. BOOK/S THAT PUT YOU IN A RIDICULOUS READING SLUMP

Daughter of Smoke and Bone

Daughter of Smoke and Bone
I loved this book and so far I haven’t read the other two in the trilogy but I’m hoping to fix that soon, but I loved this book and the way Laini Taylor writes it was amazing but I just didn’t want to read anything else for the longest time afterwards

3. NAME A BOOK YOU WISH MORE PEOPLE KNEW ABOUT.

DPOTF

The only thing that comes to mind is The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black which I just don’t think has gotten the love that it deserves with its diverse characters


4.  NAME A BOOK/S YOU WISH TURNED INTO A MOVIE.

Vampire Academy
Can I request that Vampire Academy be redone?

5. FAVORITE BOOKTUBER/S

Catriona at Little Book Owl
Kat from Katytastic
Christine from Polandbananabooks

Deweys 24 hour readathon TBR

readathon1_lgSo this Saturday is Dewey’s 24 hours readathon! Finally! I have been looking forward to this for so long now! If you don’t know what Dewey’s 24 readathon is here is the URL to their site Dewey’s 24-hour readathon

One neat thing about the readathon is that every region has their own start time so that everybody participating starts at the exact same time. Since I’m in the PNW my start time is 5:00 a.m. lucky me, I don’t even get up that early on weekdays. I’m so gonna need a lot of coffee.

Here’s a link to start times: Start times

So my TBR is kinda up in the air, I guess it depends on what I’m reading Friday and I’m finished with it yet, but I have an assortment of books set to the side that I can switch up if I’m not interested in it at the moment since I am a mood reader. I also have a few graphic novels set to the side and Deathnote to break up my reading. Also nap times lol. Can’t forget those.

Blogging things I suck at

I think this titles a little redundant since I’m very new to blogging and could probably do so many things better, but this sounded like a fun encouraging thing to write up.

You never know maybe this will help me to work on and improve at these things and get better.

So here are some things I suck at.

Schedules:
I’m great at creating schedules, planning things out and thinking in advance. I’m awful at sticking to them. I hate schedules and deadlines. It’s a bit ironic since for a while in high school I was dead set on becoming a journalist. So part of my intuition tells me that my career choice might not have worked out.

by Leigh Bardugo
Paperback
372 pages
published: May 7th 2013
My Rating: 4 stars
Synopsis:

Alina Starkov doesn’t expect much from life. Orphaned by the Border Wars, she is sure of only one thing: her best friend, Mal–and her inconvenient crush on him. Until the day their army regiment enters the Fold, a swath of unnatural darkness crawling with monsters. When their convoy is attacked and Mal is brutally injured, Alina reveals a dormant power not even she knew existed.

Ripped from everything she knows, Alina is taken to the royal court to be trained as a member of the Grisha, the magical elite led by the mysterious Darkling. With Alina’s extraordinary power in his arsenal, he believes they can finally destroy the Fold. Now Alina must find a way to master her untamed gift and somehow fit into her new life without Mal by her side. But nothing in this lavish world is what it seems. As the threat to the kingdom mounts and her dangerous attraction to the Darkling grows, Alina will uncover a secret that could tear her heart–and her country–in two.

A Court of Thorns and Roses Book 2 Title reveal

Guys, I kind of want to cry right now. Don’t worry they are tears of happiness and fangirling.

A Court of Thorns and Roses is in the Top 3 of my favorite books of 2015 list AND the title of ACOTAR Book two was just revealed and I am just so excited!

12113535_795843593858178_8097543523022573273_o

I LOVE IT!
A Court of Mist and Fury 

If you haven’t read A Court of Thorns and Roses yet I would highly recommend it, it’s a retelling of Beauty and the Beast and it was so good. So good!! It’s set in this fantastic world and the characters are just so lovable.
I can’t wait to see the cover for this.

Sarah J Maas is one of my favorite authors she writes such amazing characters and builds fascinating worlds, I can never say too many good things about her and about the books that she writes. check out her web page at worldofsarahjmaas

I’m kind of tempted to create a countdown table for when this baby is released…maybe when we get a day release date.
