FEELING GIDDY FROM BOOKS IS THE BEST FEELING IN THE WORLD! AND GUESS WHAT? I walked into a book store yesterday and got over 30 BOOKS!
[Ignore the shouting above. I get drunk on books like that 😛 ]
But just. EEK, I’m so happy ❤
Now time to share my whopping book haul which consists of over 30 books (BOOKS! Did I mention the books? 😄 ) I think I spent over what would be your equivalent of over 36 pounds. I’m unfortunately broke now…
First of all, we have…. Blood of Olympus! *drumroll*
And now, for a book overload 😉 :
I’m particularly excited for Cry of the Icemark, because, well, FANTASY! *dreamy sigh* I’m am ALSO quite excited for The Roman Mysteries, Walk Two Moons, and H.I.V.E and John Green and the Hobbit and…
Oh, never mind 😉
So, what are your thoughts on my book haul? Have you had a book haul lately?
This week I have ALSO decided to link up with the awesome Emily @ The Loony Teen Writer for Loony Blurbs, where you invent a blurb based purely on it’s title. Though mine definitely won’t contend with the hilariousness and sheer genius of Emily’s! Those are in a class of their own 😉
Stitching Snow by R. C. Lewis
Alexandra is famous all over the kingdom for her sewing skills. Most people wear robes of silk, or satin.
Not in Paltounia. Here the nobles wear robes of snow. And only Alexandra and stitch the fickle powdery substance.
People thought that a place with nothing but icy wastelands won’t be able to survive. But they did. But now a boy, travelling from ancient lands is here with The Sun, whatever that may be. And The Sun threaten to melt Paltounia and drown all the people in it. And their clothes, to her very own horror.
And it is up to Alexandra to save the kingdom (and save herself from some views she would not want to see). Will life ever be the same for her again? Can she be more than the girl who could stitch snow?
The Secret Hum of a Daisy by Tracy Holczer
Tracy the Daisy is fed up of rules in general.

Midnight Thief by Livia Blackburne
All of Blackburne’s friends are Morning, Noon, and Evening Thieves. So why did he have to be that unfortunate so as to end up as a Midnight Thief?
Everyone knows that Midnight Thieves are low-class untalented cowards. Why else would they choose the middle of the night to steal valuables? True talent lies in stealing things so skillfully right in front of the humans and they still don’t notice, in front of their very own noses…
Join Blackburne as he tries to find out where his true talent lies and become the first respected and revered Midnight Thief. But as he soon finds out, Midnight Thieves aren’t all what they seem…
Stop in the Name of Pants! by Louise Rennison
Georgia never really was elegant.
So nobody is surprised when she ends up in a bull racing ring, who knows how that happened. But to make things worse, she couldnt have thought of something better to yell other than “Stop in the name of PANTS!” as she was about to be trampled to her death by an angry bull.
And of course the event spreads like wildfire.
And Georgia is mortified. She vows never to show her face again. But that’s when she meets someone even more clumsy and awkward than herself. And suddenly, her life isn’t that bad anymore.
Yes, blogglings, the blurbs were quite ridiculous! But it isn’t called Loony Blurbs for nothing…
And now, I’m off to get me some books to read (and chocolate)! Until then,
