Hoarders, Books Edition: Episode 119

IMG_7351 The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt | Talulla Rising by Glen Duncan | Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty
| Mean Streak by Sandra Brown | Opposition by Jennifer L. Armentrout | Puddle Jumping by Amber L. Johnson | The Last Werewolf by Glen Duncan | Assholes by Aaron James | Dangerous Girls by Abigal Haas

       I did say I wasn’t going to buy any books for the next six months, but we all know hoarders can’t be trusted in a bookstore. This happened when my husband took me record shopping. It just so happens that the record store sell books as well…okay, I lied. It’s more like, the bookstore sells records. And I saw all four of these books that I couldn’t resist. The rest were ordered on Amazon.

    You can tell I haven’t done much on the blog lately. I think I’ve only managed to do one post this week. That’s okay, though. I’m sorting my sh*t out. I’m hoping that I’ll be able to schedule some interesting posts for the coming weeks and as well, keep up with y’all on Bloglovin’. Once again, I ask for your continued patience.

Books Read:


The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon
Published: August 20th, 2013

On any given occasion, The Bone Season is the type of read that I probably would have a tough time getting through. It’s paranormal and fantasy, which are both something that I’m not a regular reader of. But listening to the audiobook while reading the hardback copy made it all worthwhile.

18298225On the Fence by Kasie West
Published: July 1st, 2014

Was there ever any doubt that I was going to enjoy this one? No. Kasie West does contemporary so well! I read this book one night when I was looking for a fast, light read. It did not disappoint. My only complaint was that I was zombie the next day.

15765699 Haze [Rephaim, #2] by Paula Weston
Published: May 22nd, 2013

I don’t do a lot of blog tours, so when I do, it’s kind of a big deal. I have been in love with this series since I read the first book many moons ago. So much so, that I ordered Shadows when it was first release in Australia. I’m about 75% done, and I’m so all over the place with my emotions.

18520398 The Bridge from Me to You by Lisa Schroeder
Published: July 29th, 2014

I love Lisa Schroeder. I love her verse novels. This one, however, is underwhelming so far. It’s lacking in substance and emotions, to be honest. If the book you’re reading can’t make you feel anything, then chances are, it’s not going to be a memorable read. Unfortunate, really.

I’m making my rounds on Bloglovin’ today, peeps. Sorry for not keeping in touch. 

  • I’m not familiar with the other titles except Lux and Dangerous Girls. One my friend is urging me to read Dangerous Boys.

    Rephaim sounds interesting. I’ve been reading a lot of Urban Fantasy lately so I’m adding this on my TBR list. As of now, there are 4 books in the series. Do you think there will be additional book in the future?

  • Haha I do the same thing – tell myself I’m not going to buy books then immediately go buy a stack of books. I love calling your bookstore a record store, that makes it feel like more of an accident 🙂 Hope you enjoy your books!

    All I have to say is that it doesn’t count when your hubby takes you to the shop that happens to have books! It is his fault I tell ya!
    Enjoy them all though, I still have to read The Bone Season!

    Thanx for visiting My Weekly Wrap-Up!

  • Loved Opposition… Hope you enjoy and have a great week.

  • Yay for a bunch of gorgeous books. <3 Pffff. You should never stop buying books 😀 Not worth the heartache, lol. <3 I haven't read any of these, but they look awesome 🙂 Happy reading Joy. <3

  • Christy

    Records and books in the same store … that’s dangerous to your wallet. I can’t wait to read Dangerous Gilrls, people seem to really like it. And yay for On the Fence, so glad you liked it.

  • Ooo look at all those nice books! ENVIOUS. I’m pretty interested in Dangerous Girls, OH and also the Goldfinch, but I’ve forgotten what that one’s about. Hope you have fun reading them all!

  • Ahh I still need to read the Lux series by JLA! I just haven’t gotten around too them but i’m so excited for you to read Dangerous Girls! It’s pretty intense and i can’t wait to hear your thoughts on it!

  • I adore the spine of Tellula Rising! So beautiful <3 I hope you enjoy them all. I'm still thinking about reading the Lux series. It's becoming more and more outrageous as the Jennifer Armentrout books grow and I still haven't read any.

  • I loved Haze and Dangerous Girls so I can’t wait to see what you make of those two. I’ve also heard SO MUCH about The Goldfinch so I’m excited to hear your take on it. I want to pick it up soon for sure but the size is daunting. Wonderful haul and happy reading! 🙂

  • I have been wanting to read the Bone Season for so long now! I have a hardback, and paperback copy, lol! It doesn’t sound like my kind of read either, but it is intriguing, and the following is growing. I’m really curious about it…
    Hope all is well! Happy reading 🙂

  • Eileen @ BookCatPin

    On the Fence was so cute!! So glad you enjoyed it. I’ve heard so much praise for Dangeorus Girls so I hope you enjoy that one too 🙂

  • I LOVED On the Fence!! it was super cute. Grear haul.
    Enjoy all your books.

  • Nice haul. With my carpal tunnel acting up again, I’m going to be forced to do less. It’s always hard for us hoarders to have things the way that we want them.


  • There is no way I could ever resist either so don’t feel bad. 😉 Congrats on the great books!

  • Great Haul! But how did you get The Bane Chronicles?

  • Ha — I never make book buying resolutions because I know I am weak! But actually, I’m quite good at passing books on to others so I don’t feel that guilty about getting new ones.

    Dangerous Girls was pretty fun, and Little Big Lies kept me occupied on a coast-to-coast airplane ride. I bought the Goldfinch ages ago but haven’t had time to read it. Soon, I hope!

    Thanks so much for stopping by! Jen @ YA Romantics

    • Oh trust me, I’ve made so many book buying bans that I’ve managed to fail – quite miserably! It just doesn’t work.

  • SOme nice books! I should try Lux one day, everyone have read them. Happy reading!

    • You should. I stalled after book one but everyone can’t seem to get enough. Lol.

  • Melanie (YA Midnight Reads)

    Ooh yes Dangerous girls is truly fabulous and it seriously deserves more acknowledgement! Ah yes HAZE! That series goes down as one of my fav angel series and I am really excited about book 4.

    Awesome haul there! <33
