Book Haul: November & December 2015

I acquired quite a fair amount of books in the last two months.

Usually, I buy one, max two books at a time when I go to the book store. However, it seems like I have outdone myself and I managed to acquire a total of 13 books in the last two months, even while on a self-imposed book buying ban. This might not seem like that many to quite a few of you, but it is a lot to me, because it now means my shelves are literally exploding with books.

Since it’s Boxing Day (at least where I am), I thought I’d show you all the books I’ve acquired over the last two months (even though it’s not the end of the month yet)!


All the books in one picture – too many to handle

Top Ten Tuesday: Book to Movie Adaptations!

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly bookish feature that is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s theme is book to movie adaptations that you’re either excited for or haven’t watched yet.

I’m the kind of person who only tends to watch book to movie adaptations, and I’m a firm believer in reading the book before the watching the movie so that you can compare how faithful the movie is to the adaptation. Anyway, here’s my list:

Adaptations I still need to watch:

Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit by J.R.R Tolkien

The only reason why I haven’t watched these is because I haven’t really gotten around to reading these yet. Continue reading

In Retrospect: Heir of Fire and Queen of Shadows by Sarah J Maas

in retrospect hof and qosI’ve spent the past 3 nights or so staying up until 2am, re-reading the best fantasy series I’ve encountered so far this year (and to be honest, I don’t think anything can top it). Three (almost sleepless) nights reading, avoiding all my responsibilities, including chores and studying to read.

Anyway, there’s a lot I’ve noticed about these two books that I didn’t notice when I read the books for the first time, and it’s worth the constant yawning and almost falling asleep during class. I’d like to share some of my thoughts and opinions on these books.

In no way is this a review, or a non-spoilery discussion. Unless you live under a rock and haven’t read the Throne of Glass books before (especially Heir of Fire and Queen of Shadows), then I highly suggest that you click away because you will be spoiled. I have a non-spoilery review of Queen of Shadows (book 4 in the series), but I highly suggest you don’t touch it if you don’t want to be spoiled for the first few books (seriously, go and read the series now).

Top Ten Tuesday: Author Duos I’d Like To See Write Together

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the wonderful The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is author’s that you’d like to see collaborate with each other. I only managed to get four, so here we go:

Cassandra Clare and Rick Riordan

If they ever wrote a novel together, I think I’d die from laughing too hard because they both have a wonderful sense of humour. No matter what they wrote, I’d probably pick it up because it’d just be a easy, hilarious read. Continue reading
