Book Haul! WOOT.

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews.

Another book haul!?! I know what you're thinking. I just got finished blogging that I'm trying to go the library more and not buy as many books so as not to end up owning books I don't like. Butbutbut. I'm a failure. haha. Really though, I didn't buy THAT many and I can explain!

ON TO THE HAUL!
 
Siege and Storm (Leigh Bardugo) - I LOVED the first book in the series so it's only natural that I'm going to buy the next book.  Naturally.
 
Phoenix (Elizabeth Richards) - DANG IT! I waited to order this book when I was half-way through Black City. I was digging it and thought yeah! I'm gonna go ahead an order the next book because I'm half way done with this one, and I really like it so it should be safe to go ahead and order the next book right! It's not like Black City could all of a sudden take a downward spiral into disappointment..right? NO! NOT RIGHT! The last 1/3 of Black City was crap. So yeah. I don't want to read the second book anymore.  Boo hiss.
 
I realize I've been shit on posting reviews. Like in a LONG time. Another thing I'm a failure at. Butbutbut. I'm thinking about being better at that. Baby steps.
 
Vegan with a Vengeance (Isa Chandra Moskowitz)
 
I'm not a vegan, but I am a vegetarian (no to eggs but yes to dairy). However, I am interested in vegan eating as much as I can and this cookbook looked like a winner!
 
 
LAST BUT NOT LEAST MY MOST COVETED of purchases.....
 
The Song of Ice & Fire series (George R. R. Martin) BOX Set!! WOOT!  Includes A Game of Thrones, A Feast for Crows, A Storm of Swords and A Clash of Kings! The television show is my absolute favorite! I'm embarking on a buddy read with my..well buddy and will be starting the first book shortly.  Hellz to the yeah.  The beast shall be conquered!


See now? That's all. Not so bad.  Although I'm already thinking about stopping by Books-a-million...ONLY to look at the bargain section.. Yeah..the bargain section..

  4. I really need to read Shadow and Bone sometime soon. It looks really good and I've heard a lot of good things about it.
    I bet if you don't want Phoenix anymore you can trade it on the YA book exchange. I always go there with the books I don't want to keep/read anymore. And you can trade for some good books.
    Hope you like all of your books :D

  6. Haha great haul. I've tried unsuccessfully to tackle A Game of Thrones but have failed multiple time. I think I'm just going to stick to the show and hope that one day I get the courage to read the whole series. But from what I read (the first hundred pages) it was really great!
    I hope you enjoy, happy reading :)

  8. Oh bummer that you didn't like Black City. I thought the last portion got exciting. Not sure if you'd like Phoenix then. Hope you enjoy the rest of your reads!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, so be sure to stop by!

    Have a GREAT weekend!
