And my book haul for the month:
My copy of The Scorpio Races is signed by Maggie Stiefvater! So extra exciting.

And I feel like I need to defend myself for owning another book by Sarah J. Maas... I read (and seriously disliked) Throne of Glass. I hear that her books get better, but I was very skeptical and unwilling to read more to find out. Well, this copy came in a book box I subscribe to (The Best Damn Book Box) for last month's Beauty and the Beast themed box. So... there it is. I'm not sure if I will read it or not. It is very pretty. And maybe I can read it without reading any of the others? We will see. I don't have high hopes really.

I also bought a set of tarot cards that came with a book all made/written by Maggie Stiefvater, which is absolutely amazing! They are so pretty! I'm not sure if that counts in my book haul...

Anyway, I will leave it at that for this month.

Oh! And I dyed my hair rainbow colors! Which has been super fun and I am really enjoying it!


  1. What did you think of Jonathan Strange?? It took me a few tries to get into it, but I finally sat down and read it straight through last year! I wanted to slap them both upside the head some times, but I loved the world Susanna Clarke created.

    1. I liked it! I think I tried to read it once many years ago and didn't get into it. But I agree, they needed a good smack upside the head. I liked her writing though.
