Book Haul!~

 Welcome to my book haul!~ It's not much, but I'm very excited about these books!~ Every summer my grandfather gives us some money to go shopping with and we always make a day of it. Mall, lunch and just spending some time with him. I very easily could have gone overboard with the book buying...because I am a total book nerd...but I think I did a good job of reigning it in. Haha!

The first book is from Half Price Books!

 Lastly from Half Price, I got this book "Tales from the Tao." It's got a really cool cover (It's clothy) and brand new. (I think it's overstock). I was feeling really down, so to lift my spirits and keep me grounded, I got this book that is full of stories from Taoist masters. I have always had a liking for Taoism and it makes me feel better and more level headed. I don't have many Taoist books, so I thought that I should pick one up to help me feel better. It has stories in it and then there are quotes from different masters. I read a few of the quotes and I think it'll be a nice relaxing, mind easing read. Exactly what I need.

My last stop was Barns and Noble! This place is so dangerous...I could have spent all of my money here, but I behaved. This is "Gates of Paradise" which is the last book in the Blue Bloods series by Melissa De La Cruz. I LOVE this series sooooooo much, but it's been a while since I read the other 6 books in the series....I'm not really even sure what's going on...but I don't really have time to re-read the other books..So yeah...I'm sure I'll figure it out! Hahaha! If you don't know anything about the Blue Bloods, it's a different take on vampires that I think is really neat. It's got demons and angels and fighting and a great love's just brilliant. Read it.

And last but not least, "The Mark of Athena" by Rick Riordan. This guy....bloody brilliant. I love his books soooooooooooo much! I'm a bit disappointed with this series though. But I'm such a huge fan, I'm going to continue reading them anyways. I just finished the last book in the Kane Chronicles, "The Serpent's Shadow," and I just loved it. I know these books are meant for a younger audience, but they are just so witty and sarcastic and I just love mythology! Anyways. I just thought that I'd mention how soft and buttery this book sleeve is...It's like velvet and I wanna rub it on my face!!...But I won't..that's a bit odd (I almost typed ood and I laughed a wee bit...Oh Doctor Who....haha! Just thought I'd share that..). I love this cover, besides it's softness. I love the colors and I am very excited to see what happens in this book!~

Well ladies and gents, that is my book haul! Yay! I am thinking I will be doing some reviews soon. I'm just about finished with a book (Anne McCaffery's Dragonflight). I hope you enjoyed my haul and if any of you have read any of these books or have books you would like to share with me, please let me know! Until next time!! Tootles!~

P.S. OH!! Here is my goodreads link so if you want to add me, feel free to! Hope to see ya there!~
