September Haul: Books, Movies, and More

Hey bookworms! I promise I will learn the swing of work and blogging soon. It’s just hard to be on the computer on my weekends, when that is what I do all day for work. Good news is I plan on getting glasses soon, so that  should make being on it for work and home easier.

But anywho I thought it would be fun to show one of the benefits of having a job. Which is treating myself to stuff like my addictions every once in a while. So here is what I treated myself to in September!

September Haul

The Books:

Saga Volume 6 by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples

saga-volume-6

Citrus Volume 5 by Saburo Uto

citrus-vol-5

The Fangirl Life: A Guide to All the Feels and Learning How to Deal by Kathleen Smith

the-fangirl-life

There is an interesting story with these first three… Well not funny exactly I originally ordered copies of these in March, but they were shipped to my old address and never got forwarded… I hope who ever is living there is enjoying the books, so I had a coupon and decided to get them all over again. I am sure they are worth it though.

Twilight of Avalon by Anna Elliot

The Isle of the Lost by Melissa De La Cruz

The Game of Love and Death by Martha Brockenbrough

If you’re curious about this movie I did do a review on this movie which I gushed for… Here

Raising Helen

Laws of Attraction

Ramen Girl

So if you haven’t figured it out I have a movie addiction on top of these movies I also bought a movie binder that holds 400 DVDs… Yeah I was a little bad, but most excluding the first were $10 and under! So no regrets… For now XD

Lastly I bought this adorable and super soft Umbreon pillow pet at the Tokyo Discount store near my house. He is one of my favorite eeveelutions and I couldn’t resist buying him. Now if only they had an Espeon then I would have my favorite Pokemon Ship. May they will one day.

I’m doing good at savings, but sometimes when I’ve had a hard day at work small things such as books or movies on sale makes it a little better. Working at a call center isn’t easy as a first job, but it is teaching me skills I can carry to a job I feel passionate about. There are rough days, but there are also days where I really like my job. It is a stepping stone to what and where I want to be in life.

Have you read or watched any of these? What is your favorite pokemon? What do you indulge in when you’re feeling stressed. Let me know! I miss you all and now I am off to schedule some more posts for you all! Happy Reading and Watching!

WWW Wednesday: The Books That Have Kept Me Company in my Slumpy Mood…

WWW Wednesday

Hey bookworms! I know this is a late-ish post, but I just finished an assignment a bit ago and felt I could use some fun. I also know I haven’t done a wrap-up in forever, so this will let you all know what I have actually finished reading. So what is WWW Wednesday? It is a weekly feature hosted by Taking on a World of Words in which we answer three questions:

1. What Have You Recently Finished Reading?

2. What are You Currently Reading?

3. What Do You Plan on Reading Next?

Recently Finished

Faking It by Cora Carmack

Faking It

This is the only book I have finished this week, I have finished 3 other audiobooks in the last week, but I didn’t want to stretch. I thought it was an okay story and I might have liked it more with different narrators, but it was just too quick of an attraction for me! So this was a 3.4 out of 5 stars for me because I did appreciate the message near the ending.

Currently Reading

1. Wolfsbane by Andrea Cremer

Wolfsbane

This is my audiobook reread of the week and I am really enjoying the revisit of my reread. I think I am enjoying it more this second time!

2. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by JK Rowling

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

I’ve been reading this between assignments to give my brain a break. I have been highlighting and loving the small things I find in this reread.

3. This One Summer by Mariko Tamaki, Jillian Tamaki (Illustrator)

This One Summer

I noticed this was on Scribd, so I thought I would read this tonight because it’s a light read and I’ve wanted to read it forever, so I jumped on it!

What’s Next?

1. The Wolf Wilder by Katherine Rundell

The Wolf Wilder

I had to put this one down for a bit but I want to get back to it because I really want it to have a happy ending and review it for December!

2. Alias Hook by Lisa Jensen

Alias Hook

I am on my last renewal for this one, so I really want to try and finish it before Tuesday wish me luck!

3. Tease by Sophie Jordan

Tease

Honestly I don’t care for the narrator, but I want to finish the series and I don’t have much time to read print lately.. I am hoping the read is worth it.

4. A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray

A Great and Terrible Beauty

This is the credit I used for November so I will try to get to it by the end of the weak! I am excited to start something by this author and maybe it will push me into reading The Diviners!

Well bookworms that is it for tonight and I finished it while it’s still Wednesday. Have you read any of these? What were your feelings or favorites? Link me your WWW Wednesday and let me know in the comments! Happy reading and to my US readers have a fun and happy Thanksgiving!
