August Haul!

Don’t you all just love a good book haul? I may have gone a little overboard this month with my book buying, but I say that every month I decide to place an order with Book Outlet. (By the way, if you have never shopped at Book Outlet, you need to change this immediately. It is a fantastic way to build up your library for relatively cheap.)

Also, I buy books whenever I am sad, and this month had a few downs. But since there is nothing sad about book hauls, let’s get to the goods! Continue reading “August Haul!”

August OwlCrate Unboxing!

I cannot believe how fast my August OwlCrate got here this month!  I got my shipping notification while I was at the gym on a Tuesday night, and then Thursday at lunch I was retrieving it from the apartment rental office… IT WAS LIKE MAGIC GUYS.
 And you know what else is like magic?  Me posting this unboxing on time! Unlike my serious procrastination on the July Unboxing.  (Also, maybe I only received one subscription box this month so there was no reason to delay…..maybe.) August’s theme was “Fast Times at YA High” which I thought was a really cute take and turn on the “Fast Times at Ridgemont High” which good god, a ton of people probably didn’t even catch because we’re old.

When I heard what the theme was, honestly, I wasn’t initially excited.  I do love OwlCrate, and the way that they put together their boxes, but romance contemporaries aren’t really my cup of tea.  Especially because the older I get, the more I really, really dislike reading about immature teenagers and high school settings.  Anyways, enough reminding me how ancient I am, and let’s get to the exciting stuff, the unboxing!

Published February 2016

I received The Love That Split The World in my February OwlCrate box, and was super excited about it because I had been ogling it on Instagram for a month.  I love OwlCrate, not only for the bookish items I receive, but also because they put books in my hands that I normally would not have picked up or bought.  BUTTT, I will gush about OwlCrate in a separate post, here I am going to gush about TLTSTW.
This is a book that crawls into your soul and sits there.  I have thought constantly about it since I turned the last page over two weeks ago.  It should also be noted that as an adult, it has become harder and harder for me to marathon books.  I’m not a young’n like I once was; gone are the nights of no sleep to finish a book, you know, with work in the morning.  But, I finished this in a single weekend. So, there’s that.
