Book Haul, or the One Where I Buy Things I Shouldn't

I am far too lazy and un-groomed this week to film a vlog, so PICTURES INSTEAD:


Mistborn trilogy by Brandon Sanderson boxed set


Exile by Shannon Messenger (VERY VERY SHINY)


Perfect Ruin by Lauren DeStefano (which is OBSCENELY beautiful in person)


In the After by Demitria Lunetta (thanks, ARCycling!)


  1. You snagged In the After on ARCycling?! Lucky! Also there is a white unicorn on that one book and that's awesome. Also, Perfect Ruin is ridiculously pretty!
    My STS

  2. ooh, Perfect Ruin! I really enjoyed this one and am dying to purchase the HC. I bet it is so beautiful. Great haul!

    My Friends Are Fiction

  3. So envious that you snagged In The After from ARCycling. Hope you love it. Also Perfect Ruin looks amazeballs. Cannot wait to see what you think of it.

  4. I don't know about "Shouldn't" business. Books are good. Wallet may say "noo" but listen to your heart. (By which I don'y mean that old song ( but that buying books is never a bad thing.

    YES TO MISTBORN. YES TO FRIENDS READING MORE BRANDON SANDERSSOOON. I love his books and Mistborn is definitely one of his best. Kelsier, Breeze, Elend, Vin... those characters are forever-favorites.

    I was reading Pixie's review for this series, and it made me want to share this link with both of you: READ IT GILLY B. You know when you didnt listen to me and you regretted it? DO SO NOW AT YOUR OWN PERIL. We've proven I was right then (Krokodil gross) so trust I am again -- that link is interesante.

    I got very Chandler Bingish when my Perfect Ruin copy showed up today. Could that cover BE any more gorgeous?

  5. OKAY SOOOOOO I want to see your review of Perfect Ruin. NOW GILLIAN WRITE IT NOW. Seriously, the pic you showed was gorgeous. I SO hope the book is good!

  6. I bought myself a copy of Mistborn an embarrassingly long time ago, when Christina reviewed it, and I still haven't read it. But the blogging world is eating this book up, so SOON, I swear!

  7. Seeeeee you say the books are pretty/shiny and then you don't show them LAME. Pfft to not taking a shower - smellovision has yet to be invented :P

    JK, I understand. EEP Mistborn! I need to buy those too at some point. And I'm still all gaga eyes over your copy of Perfect Ruin. asdjfkl; so prettyyyyyyy! :)

  8. Yay! I think you will love Perfect Ruin. <3 I just read it and it was PERFECT. Sigh :) Oh, and read Exile back in February; so good. <3 hope you'll get to read them both soon :) Happy reading :D

  9. Can't wait to see what you think of Perfect Ruin. I really enjoyed I can't stop pulling the book off my shelf just to admire and pet the pretty cover. I got an ARC but I bet the hardcover is even prettier! I picture all the little drawn bits being kind of indented maybe? Now I need to go to a bookstore and pet the hardcover.

  10. Someday I plan to read the Mistborn books. And I bought Perfect Ruin this week as well. Too pretty not to!
