shelf stacking

Meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews where I post all the bookish things I’ve received/purchased either physical or e-book.

So today, I’m showing you my whole September book haul. I went a little crazy- 28 physical books and 25 e-books (some were free but not all. Most were $.99, others were on sale…)

I don’t regret any of these and spending the amount of money I did this month. I just wish I would have budgeted a little better because I did spend more than I should have. But I love what I collected- I got a lot of amazing books! :D

Now, that’s a book haul. ;) Just kidding… I haven’t done a post with a haul in over a month so it’s a little over due.. Here’s what I’ve collected since that last post. :)

Have you read any of these? Thoughts?

Stacking the Shelves (#29): The Slacking Edition

shelf stacking

 

Meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews where I post all the bookish things I’ve received/purchased either physical or e-book.

The last time I did a ‘stacking the shelves’ post was the week after I attended RT Book Lovers Convention. Honestly I have been slacking on my blog. I fell extremely behind in reviews, I’m still way too far behind. I review everything I read. I think I’m going to change my reviewing ways, because it’s too much. I’ve also been having issues with my laptop and now double car issues. Good luck hasn’t been on my boyfriend and I’s side for a couple weeks now. But anywho, that can be discussed in something else. Let me show you what I’ve picked up since RT!!

imageimageimageimage image

 

In the first one, Fractured was the new one. I already own Slated, I just wanted to include it in the picture. ;) Red Rising was the last book from my birthday book haul from Amazon. Literally came the VERY last day it could deliver… My dogs got ahold of the original paperback copies of the Delirium trilogy, so I’m having to replace them all. So far I have found a hardcover edition of Requiem and it was only $3 at Half Price Books. :) Dear John is a replacement copy for my old mass market (the size drives me crazy). Lastly Time Travelers Wife and Carrier of the Mark are both from my sister, Kamryn (@wanderlustreader on Instagram). She didn’t want them anymore and I know I’ll probably read them at some point.

Since living on my own, trying to control my book buying hasn’t been easy. It’s hard not wanting to spend money when you have bills, 3 small animals and all kind of grown up responsibilities. ;P but I think I’m doing pretty well honestly. :) well, that’s all I have for my haul. I’ll see you guys either in my next post or my next stacking the shelves!! :*

Stacking the Shelves (#28): My Birthday & RT Book Lovers Edition

shelf stacking

Meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews where I post all the bookish things I’ve received/purchased either physical or e-book.

I have A LOT to show you guys this week! But HEY! Been a while right? ;) Well, hopefully this makes up for my absence. :) I was doing really good up until my birthday- where I got $150 to spend ($50 to Half Price Books and $100 to Amazon), so all but 1 book are in this haul! (still waiting on 1 more… ugh). Then, there’s my RT Book Lovers Convention haul from last Saturday….. ;) I got a lot! So why don’t I start showing you the goodies?

What my lovely friends Cassie (@allthebookishfeels on IG) & Monica (@nightreads on IG) sent me!

11123755_1391089164549962_1718842010_n 11263549_383140098552895_1365688725_n

I swear, these 2 know me so well. :) I’m spoiled! Love my friends!!! Can’t wait to meet both these girls someday!

What I did with the $150 I got for my birthday (excluding 1 book which I’m STILL waiting on!)

11176463_811415765574174_1281032010_n 11184499_1585593405038597_489221194_n 11189364_964006026973722_1971617478_n 11203349_415322511984033_837547449_n

The 4th picture is what I bought with my $50 Half Price Books gift card. :) The rest are what I ordered from Amazon, and again, excluding one book which I still haven’t received! The one book I have the most issues with is the copy of The 100. The most obvious detail is there’s NO DUST JACKET! I was too excited with this money that I failed to pay attention to the description. Whoops! Hopefully I can still return it, I’m not okay with no dust jacket. ;)

The damage done at RT last Saturday in Dallas:

I came home with 45 books total, but 12 are books I brought from home to get signed. I don’t think I included the 3 that weren’t signed…

2015-05-17 12.34.50 2015-05-17 12.37.38

These are the 12 books I brought from home to be signed. Below are the signatures plus some extra books I picked up at the convention that were signed.

2015-05-17 12.38.30 2015-05-17 12.38.55 2015-05-17 12.39.07 2015-05-17 12.39.19 2015-05-17 12.39.34 2015-05-17 12.39.53 2015-05-17 12.40.48 2015-05-17 12.41.00 2015-05-17 12.41.30 2015-05-17 12.41.52 2015-05-17 12.42.25 2015-05-17 12.42.42 2015-05-17 12.43.07 2015-05-17 12.47.09 2015-05-17 12.47.37 2015-05-17 12.48.21 2015-05-17 12.49.15 2015-05-17 12.49.50 2015-05-17 12.50.27

 

These are the remaining 33 books I picked up! I honestly got a huge majority of these from my lovely friend, Ashlynn (@bookishqueen on IG) who I spent the majority of the day with! (& including my younger sister, Kamryn @wanderlustreader on IG)

2015-05-17 12.51.32 2015-05-17 12.51.41

My Epic Reads tote bag I got during the Teen Day Party later in the night! The authors that attended this event that I could hunt down, I got their signatures. :) See who you can make out on the bag!!

2015-05-17 12.56.38

 

And of course, what’s a book convention without the mounds of swag right? :) I didn’t realize how much I came home with until the next day when I went through everything! I didn’t think I picked up that much and this picture DOES NOT do the size of this pile justice! I honestly gave up trying to make it look all pretty because I had sooo much swag!

 

2015-05-17 13.00.44

Of course I have to show you one of the highlights of the day… Getting to do a photo-booth session with Kiera Cass! This is now the second time meeting her and I honestly adore her to pieces! She’s the sweetest, funniest, most outgoing author there. She was the most involved with all the readers (at least from what I saw!). She is just the sweetest person!

2015-05-17 13.37.09 Lastly, I can’t forget to show you all the totes I came home with. :)

Ohh! I can’t forget my pictures with some authors! :D

Colleen Hoover (author of Ugly Love, the Slammed trilogy and others!)

RT Book Lovers Convention was the best day so far this year! I had an absolute blast! I didn’t expect how it ended up turning out. This was my first convention and only having attended a handful of signings in the past. So, I was kind of unprepared for the event. I missed A LOT of awesome authors at the event and didn’t think to bring at least more books or something for authors to sign instead of books. Thanks to the Epic Reads tote I got later in the day, I was able to get some signatures from authors I didn’t bring books for. Had I thought of that at the beginning of the day during the massive signing, I would have brought something at least! But nonetheless, it was an absolute amazing experience that I think every reader should do at least once in their life! It’s fun to hang out with authors and get to spend the day with them. At signings you don’t normally get this kind of one-on-one time with authors like you do at conventions! I’m so grateful to all the publishing companies, the people who put together RT, the authors attended and just everyone that made this day possible! It was absolutely worth the $30 I spent to attend this event. Yes, your reading that correctly. Only $30 to get and experience all this! I’m sure I was an absolute fangirl at some points, especially during the Teen Day Party! I was running around like a madman finding authors for signatures. But, it was so worth it. :) We all fangirl and know what it’s like to act that way! ;) I hope someday in the future RT comes back closer like they did this year! Also, hopefully I can attend some other conventions that are hosted here in Texas in the future! I will definitely attend more of these in the future and not just RT’s convention!

Well, that’s it! I’ll see you guys later! :)

I have a pretty exciting haul for y’all today! Both my really good friend, Ashlynn (& her mom) + my Secret Santa’s gifts arrived this past week and I’m so excited about all these books + the ones I purchased myself! So let’s get started shall we? :)

Ashlynn sent me:

Her mom signed both No Attachments and When We Met, I’m so stinking excited about both of them!!! As well as Hopeless! I absolutely adore the little reading journal! I’m definitely using it next year hopefully to help myself write book reviews! :) (I also got scented gel pens, but didn’t get a chance to post those.)

I have a love/hate relationship with Amazon… This last purchase, the one on the left… ;) Turned out to be more towards hate… I preordered this in either October or November… I didn’t get it until that Friday that it was released. I PREORDERED it… Ugh. I know it’s the holidays and everything, but it’s JLA!!!!! :(

The other 2 on the right were $3 each at Half Price Books!!! I found a clearance section at the one that’s closest to me. I never knew that clearance section existed until that day… Glad I found it!!! :D
