Book Haul #13...



One weekend there was a book fair. One book-loving girl went along...twice. One wallet was emptied. Forty-three books were purchased. Three bookshelves were filled. One bibliophile was way too excited for her own good. She wanted to share her book finds with all her bloggy friends. So she created six different book haul posts to add to the 11 she had already posted. Everyone was happy. Read more about it all here

And here we arrive at the second instalment, but the 13th book haul. I think I need help.


Third Day the Frost, by James Marsden
In high school we read Tomorrow, When the Way Begins,  and I remember loving it so much that I when right ahead and read the rest of this series. I loved them. My friend bought me the first one for Christmas a few years ago, so when I saw the third one at the book fair, I grabbed it. But now it's the awkward situation where I have books 1 and 3 but not 2. Sigh.

Marked, by P.C and Kristen Cast
I think - think - I read this years ago. I don't really remember, to be honest, but it was only $2! So even if it turns out I don't like, no biggy, right? Right.

Plague, by Michael Grant
I've been meaning to read these books for a while now, and while I couldn't for the life of me find the first on at the fair, I figured there was no harm in grabbing book 4, yeah? *rolls eyes* I'll have to find the others at the library or in another book fair sometime.

Stargazer and Hourglass, by Claudia Gray
I think I have read the first of these (Evernight), but I have a feeling I'll need to read that again before I read these two. Good ol' vampire books.

Rapture, by Lauren Kate
Oh this drama! Can't believe I actually managed to find this book. You can read about the Lauren Kate series drama here, and also here, if you're a little out of the loop. But I finally have all 4 books! Can I get a 'heck yeah'?! *heck yeah!*


So that's it for now! Until next week that is!

Sunday Song...



Last week I mentioned that I completely missed the release of Daughtry's latest album, Baptized (which came out last year in November *rolls eyes*), but that I got it recently and have been listening to it so.much. Last week I shared a song on the album called Cinderella, which I said was one of my favourites. Today I thought I'd share another favourite from the album.

Battleships, by Daughtry



I also really like Waiting for Superman, but I know it's one that people would probably recognise the most out of all the songs on the album. I'm only making this assumption because that was only one I had a vague recollection of hearing before I bought the album. Ha!

Anyway! That's your Sunday Song today! I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend!

10 Hunger Games Inspired DIYs...

With the extremely exciting release of Mocking Jay Part 1 this week, I thought it would be a great time to gather together some great DIY ideas for you to get your craft on! I just love craft and DIY ideas that are book and/or movie related, especially ones that are so big like the Hunger Games series. Even if you don't consider yourself 'crafty', you can still make some of these great things; they're not overly difficult.

I can't wait to see Mocking Jay Part 1! I'm going to see it tomorrow, so this DIY board is definitely getting me into the Panem spirit. I think perhaps I'll watch Catching Fire again tonight. Just for fun. Anyway! Check out some of these awesome DIYs. Links to everything are below!
