This is my first Stacking the Shelves, and boy am I excited! Why?
I think you know the answer already:
I took a trip to the library yesterday and I found a lot of books which I had been wanting for ever sooo long! Sure, I had the e-books, but nothing is like getting to HOLD the book in your hands and admire it’s cover in real life (though technically, reading on an e-reader is also real – not exactly a fantasy world now, is it? But I think some of you may know what I mean 🙂 ) And then there is also my not so discreet excuse for getting new books….Book sniffing. Maybe I’ll write a post about it someday!
Anyway, Stacking the Shelves gives me an opportunity to have an excuse for one of my random-no-reason-whatsoever hobbies….Book Photography 😛 And on the plus side, y’all can get a peek at my ever-growing TBR too. See? Two in one!
Books I Scavenged
So basically I’ve got:
♦ The Fellowship of the Ring (Lord of the Rings #1) by J.R.R Tolkien ~o~ I’ve been wanting to get to this book for so long. I’ve heard so many good things about it from awesome bloggers whom I frequent ever so often.
But, I shall admit that the size is daunting. But then, if I could brave the entire intimidating Inheritance Cycle (which though long-winded) was actually pretty good ❤
Though it seems like the book has either been read by a LOT of people – mind you I mean it 😀 – or the person just vandalized the book. How can they do that? Don’t they have a heart?
♦ Molly Moon, Micky Minus and the Mind Machine (Molly Moon #4) by Georgia Byng ~o~ Apart from being, like, the ultimate YA fan, I also happen to LOVE Middle Grade fiction. SO, that leads to me picking this book up from the library 🙂 Let’s see what I think of it…
♦ Paper Towns by John Green ~o~ I read this book ages ago. But I liked it. Really, really, liked it. Henceforth, I shall be rereading it!
YES, YES, YES! I’ve wanted this one for sooo long! Every review I read about this one, was just put in Fangirling Mode. People have been saying so many good stuff, that I’m tingling to just get started.
EEEK, I’M SO EXCITED!!!!
Throne of Glass, here I come 😄
Another book that has been recommended to me by so many people! And all of them in their fandom phase! Gosh, I’ve got to get to this book soon.
But it won’t be long, since now I have the e-book, so yay!
I’m so excited to read both of the books…
My Posts this Week
I didn’t post much this week, like I mentioned in my last post becuase of one reason: school. The word can say everything for me. I’ve gotten so much homework, and it’s only my first week.
But here’s the list anyway…
- On Psycho Moon Princesses and Her Ugliness — In which I compare Voilante with Princess Winter from Lunar Chronicles.
- Discussion: Villains are Awesome — In which I discuss if I’m entirely strange for loving the villains in books and movies as much as the hero 🙂 This one was fun to write!
- Top Ten Characters you’d find at my Lunchtable — In which I chose all the people who would sit with me at my lunchtable. If only this was real…then life would be perfect….
I have been totally ignoring the artsy part of my blog *guilty* Sorry about that ^_^ . But expect updates soon.
My Wacky-not-so-Wonky Life 🙂
I’ve just realized, that keeping a guitar is quite expensive, what with my extravagant book-spending habits that really need to stop!
First there’s buying the guitar itself, then there’s buying a case for it, and then there’s buying a strap for it, buying picks, buying capos, and then there’s getting those ever breaking strings repaired…and, well you get the idea.
Did I mention the capo?
I bought one a month ago, but it broke in the first two weeks. So, today I got the best quality one! Go me 😀 I feel so good using it…
And, just for fun, I also made this maze for my little sister. It’s much easier to solve than all the effort I put into making it. But, ah well! Still looks amazing to me 😛
And voila! That was my week, folks 🙂
