First of all, I want to express my gratitude to Rachel from Hello, Chelly! It was so very kind of her to send me a copy of The Infinite Moment of Us! Thank you so much, Rachel!

Anyway…. do I even need to tell you how excited I am about the books I got? The first three books from my haul (Frozen, Icons & Keeping Secrets) are for the book signing happening on Saturday/Sunday! We have three international authors coming here and ahhhhhh!!! *fangirls* Speaking of,  I finally have  a copy of Fangirl! It’s one of my super-dying-to-read books and I cannot believe I finally have it in my hands. Same goes with The Beginning of Everything, The Raven Boys and The Book Thief! As you can imagine, I’m quite stoked. But I have a huge as in capital D-I-L-E-M-M-A! Which book do I read next? HELP!

PS: This may or may not be my last book haul ever… I’m so broke I can hear my wallet crying a whole ocean.
PPS: Today marks my 3rd month as a book blogger!!!!!! *confetti*




    1. I’ve been meaning to read it for the longest time! I was actually doubtful about Shadow and Bone for a while because it’s not the type of book I usually pick up but I’ve heard too many awesome things to pass it up! I’m reading Fangirl now and then I’ll be reading The Raven Boys next! :D

    1. Of all time? Even more than E&P? Woah! No worries, I’m reading it now and am enjoying it a lot. Thanks, Lucy! :’)

    1. I did! ;) The Rule of Thirds is about a girl who’s a fashion photographer while her friend is a model. They join some contest. I love photography so I requested the title! I’m hoping it’s good. :D

    1. I think it’s the most awaited book for September! It certainly is mine! You must pick it up! I’m reading it right now, and it’s pretty good. :)

    1. I know, I know! I want to read them all at onceeee! Haha! If only that were possible. Thanks for dropping by, Brittany. <3

  1. AMAZING haul, Hazel! (And did I already mention that your photography skills are exceptional??)

    Among those, I’ve only read Icons and Beauty Queens. Beauty Queens was a hilarious + fun read, although I feel “meh” about Icons. Hopefully both will be good for you! :))

    As for the others, I’ve seen really great reviews! FANGIRL!!!!!! and SHADOW AND BONE!!!!! So pretty books~~!! *grabby hands*

    Happy reading! ^_^

    1. Kyleeee, thank you! I’m really happy you like my photos! <3 Am so glad you commented about Beauty Queens. While I've read Libba Bray before, I didn't know what Beauty Queens was about. But it was P50 and I couldn't resist buying such a good deal! :)

    1. Haha, they were on top of mine too and I’m so glad I finally have copies! Happy to hear you’re enjoying The Book Thief so far! Thank you, Sandra! ;) It’s always good, having you come by. :D

    1. I’ve heard the same! I’m excited about reading Courtney Summers’ books but I’m prioritizing my dying-to-read books first hihi! :)

    1. Thank you, Rachel! Zeroing my money was totes worth it. ;) I’m just so grateful that you sent me The Infinite Moment of Us especially since I live several seas away! You are so lovely! <3

    1. Aww that’s too bad. There’s always next year though, and the year after that, and the year after that… :) And thanks, dear! I’m happy you like it! <3

    1. I’ve heard great things about it! I like the cover of Finding Home! I think it’s Aussie- hopefully it’s good. Thanks so much, Cayce! *hugs*

    1. Right?? Thank god, it’s my birthday month and my mom is trying to be kind by ignoring the fact that my room is overflowing with books haha! I agree! I bet it’s on everyone’s TBR! Thank you, Becca! <3

    1. HAHA YOU’RE THE CUTEST, JEN! *hugs* I think it was your review that got me really psyched about TBoE! ;) I’m very excited to get into these! Thank you for dropping by, lovely! It’s always good to have ya! :)

    1. Glad to hear that! I’m definitely excited to read it! At least I won’t have to wait until the next book comes out, right? ;) Thanks for dropping by, dear! <3

  2. OMG SO MANY BOOKS!! Too pretty for my eyesss ahhhh X.X :))

    I was at the MBIF too! And my wallet is crying too…

    For your next read, I highly recommend FANGIRL!! Really really really awesome book!! I bought it at the MBIF and finished it the same day. You won’t be able to put it down, I swear ;)

    Oh, and I am planning on reading The Beginning of Everything next. I’d love to hear what you think about it! :)

    1. I’m drowning in them ahhhh save me!!! Haha!!!! Thanks, Kimi!!! :) I’m still reading Fangirl- rather slowly, actually. Just savoring each word, I guess. ;) I’ll be reading TBoE this coming Saturday (yeah, I made a schedule lol) so you’ll probably finish first. :D

    1. Glad to hear you enjoyed TBoE! I’m reading The Raven Boys right now! :) Thank you, Jillian! I find yours very lovely! :D
