I meant to post this weeks ago, but life and procrastination got in the way.  Anyway, this is where the last bit of my Christmas/Birthday money went.

Books

Harry Potter UK Box Set (Harry Potter #1 – #7) by J K Rowling – Remember how I said there was just one other set of Harry Potter books I wanted to complete my collection? This is that collection. It’s normally $115-$130, depending on where you try to order it from, but Book Outlet got a few of them and had them at $80. MINE. They are so fucking pretty. The covers, the box, the naked book, the whole thing, it’s gorgeous.

Madly Ever After (I Hate Fairyland: Volume 1) by Skottie Young – This is my very first graphic novel. I really thought I wouldn’t enjoy them since I could never get in to manga, despite numerous attempts, but I was wrong! I don’t know why color makes a difference, but it apparently does! This is funny and violent and I absolutely adored it. I guess I need to get more comics now!

Caraval (Caraval #1) by Stephanie Garber – I’m about 80% finished with this and I’m very concerned with how this is going to end. Regardless of that, it has a gorgeous cover and my husband pre-ordered this for my for my birthday, so I’m happy to have it, as long as it doesn’t end horrifically.

Grave Mercy (His Fair Assassin #1) by Robin LaFevers – Lauren really enjoyed this book and it’s interesting looking enough that I’m curious about it.

Dark Triumph (His Fair Assassin #2) by Robin LaFevers – These was two were only $4. I might as well get both so I can continue on if I enjoy book 1.

All Wrapped Up (Geek Girl #1.5) by Holly Smale – I ADORED the first 2 Geek Girls books, so I’m excited to dive into this novella and get more Harriet goodness!!

The Fill-In Boyfriend by Kasie West – I really enjoy Kasie West’s contemporary romances, so I want to collect them all!

FUNKOS

There is this awesome Media Play style store in Charlotte NC called Manifest Discs that sells Funkos and movies and CDs and bunches of pop culture stuff.  What’s really great is that they have a clearance section that’s almost always on sale at Buy 1 Get 2 free.  Which means I only had to pay for 2 of these Pops.  But I managed to get Peeta and Wedding Dress Katniss from The Hunger Games, Beca and Aubrey from Pitch Perfect, and Elizabeth Bennet and Mr Darcy from Pride & Prejudice & Zombies.

SWAG

This is most of the swag I got around my birthday.  Lauren got me the Jane Austen socks and tattoos.  She also sent a message to Katie McGarry asking if she’d send me a birthday card and she did along with a small amount of swag.  Which was AMAZING.  Katie had another ribbon request for the new book up on her website, so that’s where that came from.  And Cambria Hebert has a mailing list where she sends her fans birthday cards and Valentine’s Day cards.  I love all of it.

 

As I said, Russell pre-ordered Caraval for me, so I got to sign up for the pre-order prizes.  It came with a poster of the Caraval village, a basic Caraval poster, a few tattoos, and a Caraval bag.  I also found a copy of This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab at a used bookstore that contained a letter from Victoria and a signed bookplate and that’s what the things are in the middle.

 

That’s it!!  I got a lot this time and all of my spending money is gone, but it was worth it.  What have you gotten in the new year?  Let me know in the comments!

Cover Reveal for The Unlikeable Demon Hunter by Deborah Wilde

The Unlikeable Demon Hunter
Deborah Wilde
Publication date: April 18th 2017
Genres: Adult, Romance, Urban Fantasy

Bridesmaids meets Buffy with a dash of the seven deadly sins.

The age-old story of what happens when a foul-mouthed, romance impaired heroine with no edit button and a predilection for hot sex is faced with her worst nightmare–a purpose.

Ari Katz is intelligent, driven, and will make an excellent demon hunter once initiated into the Brotherhood of David. However, this book is about his twin Nava: a smart-ass, self-cultivated hot mess, who is thrilled her brother is stuck with all the chosen one crap.

When Nava half-drunkenly interrupts Ari’s induction ceremony, she expects to be chastised. What she doesn’t expect is to take her brother’s place among the–until now–all-male demon hunters. Even worse? Her infuriating leader is former rock star Rohan Mitra.

Too bad Rohan’s exactly what Nava’s always wanted: the perfect bad boy fling with no strings attached, because he may also be the one to bring down her carefully erected emotional shields. That’s as dangerous as all the evil fiends vying for the bragging rights of killing the only female ever chosen for Demon Club.

Odds of survival: eh.

Odds of having a very good time with Rohan before she bites it: much better.

Goodreads / Amazon

 

Author Bio:

A global wanderer, hopeless romantic, and total cynic with a broken edit button, Deborah writes adult urban fantasy to satisfy her love of smexy romances and tales of chicks who kick ass. She is all about the happily-ever-after, with a huge dose of hilarity along the way.

“It takes a bad girl to fight evil. Go Wilde.” http://www.deborahwilde.com

My birthday is right after Christmas, on January 6th to be specific.  Normally, I don’t get much for my birthday, except a few phone calls because every one is broke from Christmas.  But this month was pretty awesome.

Books

The Art Of Coloring: Disney Animals – From Lauren.  It’s so INTENSE.  All of the images are so intricate.  But it’s also very pretty.

The Complete Harry Potter Collection (Harry Potter #1 – #7) by J K Rowling – My amazing Dad got me this set for my birthday. He’s only response when I jokingly said this was what I wanted was “Don’t you own those already? Why do you need a second set?” Yeah, he doesn’t get the book thing at all, but I spend the whole ride home with these hugging them and petting them. They are so fucking pretty. Now there is just one other set I need, besides the illustrated editions that aren’t all released yet.

I’ll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson – My husband let me pick out a few books from Book Outlet for my birthday. I’ve heard great things about this story and I’m excited to give it a try.

Things We Know By Heart by Jessi Kirby – This is another one from the Book Outlet order. Lauren recommended this to me. It’s a contemporary YA romance and I LOVE the cover.

Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon – Another Book Outlet pick. I adored this book. It’s cute, it’s hilarious, and it’s got a lot of heart. I’m both excited and terrified of it’s upcoming film adaptation.

Every Heart A Doorway (Wayward Children #1) by Seanan McGuire – This is the final book on the Book Outlet order. I really enjoyed this book. It’s such a unique concept and it was well executed. I’m interested to see where McGuire takes the series.

The Avery Shaw Experiment (Science Squad #1) by Kelly Oram – For my birthday, my husband surprised me with this book and the next one. This is one of my favorite books by Oram. It’s so cute and it is my favorite cover of all her works.

Cinder & Ella (Cinder & Ella #1) by Kelly Oram – This is my absolute favorite Oram book and I adore this new cover for it. I cannot express how overjoyed I am to have it in my collection. My husband did good this year. 🙂

FUNKOS

For Christmas, my sister bought me the Beast from Beauty And The Beast funko. So for my birthday, my husband decided to complete the family as he says he. So he got me Belle, Cogsworth, Lumiere, and Mrs Potts all from Beauty & The Beast. He also got me Zero from The Nightmare Before Christmas to go with the Jack and Sally I already have. Like I said, he did really well this year. I loved all his presents. He also pre-ordered Caraval for me, but I obviously won’t have it until it releases at the end of the month.

That’s all for me this week! What did you get? Let me know in the comments!

Lauren & I went shopping on New Years Eve, and even though we didn’t get much because a lot of the shops ended up being closed, we still had a lot of fun. Here are the few things I did acquire.

Books

A Court Of Mist And Fury (A Court Of Thorns And Roses #2) by Sarah J Maas – Even though the size of this book intimidates the fuck out of me and I’m not sure I like where the story is going, I couldn’t resist this autographed edition. I just couldn’t.

The Glittering Court (The Glittering Court #1) by Richelle Mead – I know this novel has gotten mixed reviews, but Lauren adores it and says I should read it. So there’s that and also, this is an autographed copy. I have a weakness for signatures…and books…and boots…

The Kissing Booth by Beth Reekles – Cutesy YA contemporary? I’ll give it a try! Also, I believe NetFlix is supposed to be adapting this into a movie or show or something, so I’m interested to read the source material.

FUNKOS

I may not be happy with where Once Upon A Time is at the moment (which is Hell, literally), but that doesn’t change the fact that I’m a sucker for Killian Jones.  What can I say, how can you not love the pirate?  So I added him to my collection as well as Minerva McGonagall from Harry Potter.  Her hat is so big!  I love her.  She was the Harry Potter funko that called to me the most.

MUG

And this awesome Harry Potter mug. When it’s hot, footprints appear when it gets hot. It’s also HUGE. It’s a 20 oz mug.

Like I said, we didn’t get much because a lot of stores were closed for the holiday, but I love the small things I did get! What awesome things did you acquire before the new year?

Day 2 of the massive book haul week!

Massive Book Outlet Order

Sleeping Giants (Themis Files #1) by Sylvain Neuvel – I’ll be honest, this was mostly a cover buy. I’ve heard good things about it and it’s supposed to be like an adult version of Illuminae, but let’s me honest here. I bought it because it’s pretty and it’s even prettier naked.

The Half Life Of Molly Pierce by Katrina Leno – Every time I see this book I’m shocked by how small it is. So much happens in these few pages and I really enjoyed it…even if it was a bit depressing.

Tracked (Tracked #1) by Jenny Martin – I went to an event last year for this book and it sounded really interesting. It’s some kind of racing story. That’s all I know and it’s all I want to know. I really like the cover for the sequel.

The Heart Of Betrayal (The Remnant Chronicles #2) by Mary E Pearson – I haven’t read The Kiss Of Deception yet, but I feel like I’m going to love it so I went ahead and grabbed book 2 because it was cheap.

A Madness So Discreet by Mindy McGinnis – I really enjoyed this novel. On top of being amazing, it also has a GORGEOUS cover.

738 Days by Stacey Kade – I adored Kade’s The Ghost & The Goth series and I really wanna read everything else she writes. I’m excited to see what she does in a romance story.

Love, Lies And Spies by Cindy Anstey – Jane Austen retelling with a cute cover? Enough said.

Love Charms And Other Catastrophes (Grimbaud #2) by Kimberly Karalius – Again, I’m a sucker for a cute cover. Cutesy contemporary with cutesy cover? Gimme.

On The Fence by Kasie West – This was my first Kasie West novel and I really loved it. I’m glad to finally own a copy of my own.

Nova And Quinton: No Regrets (Nova #3) by Jessica Sorensen – This is one of my very favorite books by Jessica and I’m overjoyed to have it and complete the Nova trilogy.

All Broke Down (Rusk University #2) by Cora Carmack – I really enjoyed Carmack’s Losing It and I’m excited to read more of her stuff!

Amazon Order

This Savage Song (Monsters Of Verity #1) by Victoria Schwab – The amazing Victoria is coming back to Malaprops in Asheville in March so I had to get a copy of this to have signed. I also pre-ordered A Conjuring Of Light from Malaprops just hold the book there and I’ll pick it up the day of the signing. But I really enjoyed This Savage Song and I can’t wait to read it’s conclusion later this year.

The Unbound (The Archived #2) by Victoria Schwab – I haven’t read The Archived yet, but again, Victoria’s coming so I needed a copy to get signed. Besides, I’ve really enjoyed everything else I’ve read by her and I’m sure this won’t be any different!

Kandice’s Christmas gifts put me back in Funko buying mode. I also got Meeko from Pocahontas and Captain Jack Harkness from Doctor Who on my amazon order. This is my first Doctor Who Funko, but hopefully I’ll add more to the collection soon!

That’s it for my online ordering haul. I went a little spend happy with my Christmas money, but can you blame me? That entire Book Outlet order was only $40, including shipping. That’s like $3.50 per book. What did you spend your holiday season cash on?

Okay, I’m still not sure this is a comeback. I miss blogging…and reviewing. I’m constantly thinking about what I could say in a review and then I remember that I’m not really reviewing anymore. I don’t miss the stress I put myself under from it though. I can’t decide how to proceed. What I do know is that I received/acquired a lot of books and bookish items since Christmas and I wanted to share it with you guys.  So this week, there will be several different book hauls because it’s too much stuff to put in one post.

BOOKS

Harry Potter & The Chamber Of Secrets: The Illustrated Edition (Harry Potter #2) by J K Rowling & Jim Kay – I have an agreement with my mom that this is all that is required of her each year for Christmas, the next illustrated Harry Potter Edition. I blame these books for causing my need to own multiple editions of books I love. This is just as gorgeous as the illustrated edition of book 1.

Romeo And/Or Juliet by Ryan North (and William Shakespeare) – Lauren got this thing that I didn’t know I needed. You may know that I really don’t like Shakespeare and I HATE R&J, but this thing looks amazing. You can choose how you want the story to go AND it has illustrations! I’m hoping to read it sometime this year.

FUNKOS

My amazing sister went Funko happy for Christmas.  She got me Beast from Beauty & The Beast, Harley Quinn from Batman, Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter, and Hank from Finding Dory.  I love them all, but I’m kinda obsessed with Hank.  He’s so fucking adorable with his little coffee pot of water.

MISCELLANEOUS

My husband got me the leggings with Serenity on it and the new purse.  The purse is a very vague nod to Firefly, modeled after Kaylee’s overalls, but I really love it.  The teddy bear and heart are fuzzy and I’ve found myself petting them repeatedly over the last month I’ve been carrying it.  I also got a pair of 101 Dalmatian leggings as a gift, which I love.  The Shakespeare socks and insult band-aids are from Lauren.  She went theme-ed this year. So Shakespeare book, socks, and band-aids.

That’s it for the physical book-ish gifts.  I love all the awesome things I got.  I didn’t get as many books this year, but that’s because it’s hard to buy books for a person with 1000+ book collection.  What did you get for Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa/whatever holiday you choose to celebrate?

I don’t miss the stress I put myself under from it though. I can’t decide how to proceed.

PHYSICAL BOOKS
Books 10-7-16

Purchased
City Of Bones (The Mortal Instruments #1) by Cassandra Clare – When I saw the redone covers for this series, I had no interest in rebuying them. The new covers aren’t terrible, but they aren’t great either. But then I saw the spines. ::sighs:: Why can’t the covers be as pretty as the spines? Anyway, I’m glad to have them in my collection now. For anyone still living under a rock, this is the first book in a young adult urban fantasy series about vampires and demons and angels and shadowhunters.
City Of Ashes (The Mortal Instruments #2) by Cassandra Clare – I can’t buy one of the pretty spines without getting them all. It’s a good thing Book Outlet had them all for relatively cheap!
City Of Glass (The Mortal Instruments #3) by Cassandra Clare – Annndd book 3!
City Of Fallen Angels (The Mortal Instruments #4) by Cassandra Clare – The contents of this book is a mystery to me. I haven’t finished the second half of this series.
City Of Lost Souls (The Mortal Instruments #5) by Cassandra Clare – Book 5!
City Of Heavenly Fire (The Mortal Instruments #6) by Cassandra Clare – The ginormous conclusion to this series. It’s sssooo big!
Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices #1) by Cassandra Clare – Again, I had no intention to buy another copy of the books in this series, but the SPINES. Unlike the Mortal Instruments books, I do plan to keep my old hardcovers of of this series. I adored this series so much. It’s even better than The Mortal Instruments.
Clockwork Prince (The Infernal Devices #2) by Cassandra Clare – God, this series is ssssooo good. I cannot believe that I’ve become that person that has several copies of a single book, but apparently I have!
Clockwork Princess (The Infernal Devices #3) by Cassandra Clare – This is one of the most beautiful finalies I’ve ever read. It’s one of my favorite books of all times.
Firefight (The Reckoners #2) by Brandon Sanderson – I can’t say much about this book because SPOILERS, but I adored it and I’m so glad to finally have my own copy.
Calamity (The Reckoners #3) by Brandon Sanderson – And this completes the series. Although, now that I have them all, I’m tempted to find a hardcover copy of Steelheart with the new cover because I have the original and they don’t match. 😦
Ink & Bone (The Great Library #1) by Rachel Caine – This is a replacement copy for me. I gave my copy to a friend as a birthday present. My husband loves this book, so hopefully I can get to it soon.
The Unlikely Hero Of Room 13b by Teresa Toten – This is a gift for a friend!
You Are Here by Jennifer E Smith – I bought this because I have enjoyed Jennifer E Smith’s previous work.
Tremble (Denazen #3) by Jus Accardo – Okay, so I bought this before I finished Toxic. I didn’t love Toxic….and I might have read spoilery reviews of this and I don’t think I like where it’s gonna go. 😦
Stars Above (The Lunar Chronicles #4.5) by Marissa Meyer – AAAHHHH. More of the Lunar Chronicles? I needed it in my life. And the cover is just so pretty.
The Conspiracy Of Us (The Conspiracy Of Us #1) by Maggie Hall – I bought this mainly because it has gotten great reviews and it looks fun.
The Improbable Theory Of Ana & Zak by Brian Katcher – I adored this book. This is one of the best books I read last year. It’s hilarious and fluffy and perfect.
Born Of Deception (Born Of Illusion #2) by Teri Brown – I really enjoyed Born Of Illusion and I’m interested to see where this series goes. Bonus? It’s signed!
The Lies About Truth by Courtney C Stevens – I really enjoy Stevens writing style and I really enjoyed this story as well. It’s about loss and friendship and learning to live with the past. It’s great!

As I said, I bought way too many books, but they were so cheap and I needed them. I haven’t bought books in quite a while, so things got a bit out of hand here! What did you get this week?

About CHASING IMPOSSIBLE:

Tough and independent, 17-year-old Abby lets very few people into her inner circle. It’s common knowledge in her Kentucky town that she deals drugs, but not even her closest friends know why. But when a deal goes south and Abby’s suddenly in danger, she finds herself reluctantly forced to lean on daredevil Logan—a boy whose restless spirit matches her own.

Logan has his own reasons for wanting to keep Abby at arms’ length. But he never expected to find in her the one person who might help him face the demons he’s tried so hard to run from.

Together, Abby and Logan will have to make a decision: let their current circumstances weigh them down forever…or fight for the future they both thought was impossible.

PUSHING THE LIMITS

CROSSING THE LINE

BREAKING THE RULES

DARE YOU TO

CRASH INTO YOU

TAKE ME ON

 

 

Chasing Impossible - RDL Teaser 1

EXCERPT:

Abby

People near the stage scream and clap and I’m about ready to throw my cell against the wall. Stupid, stupid boy and stupid me for stupidly somewhat liking him and him thinking he can get away with not answering me.

“Give it up for our boy Logan.”

My eyes rip up, go for the stage, and my mind shifts into reverse, fast-forward, rewind, and then that smile that’s associated with the devil slides across my face.

Logan stands strong on the stage. Guitar strapped across his chest. Baseball cap backwards on his black hair. And when he strikes the strings of the guitar, those biceps flex beautifully.

That chord just struck a lot deeper than anyone could have imagined. Past my bones, past my muscles, and it’s created a nice warmth that’s curling around my belly. Liquid warmth.

The logical part of my brain demands that I walk away, but he’s the one that scared me by not answering back. He’s the one that’s causing all these alien emotions stirring in my veins.

Yeah, I shouldn’t kiss Logan. I should definitely leave a boy like that alone. But he returned and he’s the one that climbed onto the stage and is looking addictively sexy with that guitar.

Yep, shouldn’t kiss him, but I already told Rachel, I’m going to kiss the guitarist tonight. Wouldn’t want that one to be a lie, now, would I?

Torn between duty and survival, nothing can be the same.

Everything Ivy Morgan thought she knew has been turned on its head. After being betrayed and then nearly killed by the Prince of the Fae, she’s left bruised and devastated—and with an earth-shattering secret that she must keep at all costs. And if the Order finds out her secret, they’ll kill her.

Then there’s Ren Owens, the sexy, tattooed Elite member of the Order who has been sharing Ivy’s bed and claiming her heart. Their chemistry is smoking hot, but Ivy knows that Ren has always valued his duty to the Order above all else—he could never touch her if he knew the truth. That is, if he let her live at all. Yet how can she live with herself if she lies to him?

But as the Fae Prince begins to close in on Ivy, intent on permanently opening the gates to the Otherworld, Ivy is running out of options. If she doesn’t figure out who she can trust—and fast—it’s not only her heart that will be torn apart, but civilization itself.

Dare You To (Pushing The Limits #2) by Katie McGarry – Now, normally, I don’t amass multiple copies of the same book. I feel like there isn’t much need to have more than one copy. However, there are some exceptions and apparently Katie McGarry is that for me. I want all the English editions of her books, including the pretty ARCs. I found this at my local thrift store for $1. Now just Pushing The Limits, Crash Into You, and Walk The Edge to go for ARC fulfillment.
Willful Machines by Tim Floreen – The synposis had a few keywords for me and they were “sentient computer goes terrist.” That’s it. I’m sold. Take my $1.
The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson – I was so excited to find this. I just finished the audio for it and really enjoyed it. Again, I know, I paid money for an ARC, but it was $1. I honestly don’t seem the harm there. I would have just as easily given up my dollar for a hardcover and been just as satisfied.
New Moan (The Twishite Saga #1) by Stephfordy Mayo – Okay, so no disrespect meant to the tri-hards, but this sounds hilarious. I’ve read the first few chapters and it’s sssssooooo funny. I’m completely in love with it!
