Holy crap The Red Knight is HUGE.

Snap @ Children of Liberty!

Alligator book murderer!

I love the binding of The Thorn and the Blossom, I've seen it before, but not as 'intimately' ;-)

And congrats on being listed in Cinder!

Heheh, you're rambly today. It's funny (in a good way) and I do like watching it in vlogs. :D

@ the alligator wound in Love Is All You Need - Aww crap, that sucks. :(

@ The Thorn and the Blossom - I've heard about the double sided thing but I've never seen it. Thanks so showing!

Oh, I can't wait to see what you think of The Archived! It sounds so awesome. Only nine more days! And ew, the alligator book. Just whack the alligator with the book. And The Thorn and the Blossom is so cool! I've never heard of books like that.

I just read Falling For You yesterday and lol I spent the last 30 pages of the book in tears because I am a feelings nerd. SO GOOD. I think I'm going to type/schedule my review of it today.


The Archived! I am so jealous. Although I think I can just like order it now. Hmmm.

Happy reading :-)

Open up like a nut!


You're cat doesn't look excited at all.. let him go!

I am so amazed that you know all of these imprints O.o I can never keep it all together.

Oooh the last two contemporaries look like ones I could really like! Oh booo for the pages! I'm mourning for you.

Great haul chick!

The Archived sounds super good! I cannot wait to read that one! You always have such amazing book hauls!

Cinder was a really good book. You got a copy of The Archived and I want one too so badly. I hope you enjoy it! Same with The Thorn and the Blossom. I love the cover on that book. And your cat is adorable but entirely unhappy in front of the camera. Ha!

Right? And the font is small too. That will take me approximately ten years to read. O_O

I will kill that alligator!

Isn't it awesome? I was so surprised!

Woo! I feel so famous, even though I'm with hundreds of other blogs. Don't care!

I was rambly. No idea why. Just happened.

No problem! I knew I had to share that awesome binding.

I've read like five pages and am VERY confused by The Archived. Hopefully I'll be able to orient myself.

January 14, 2013 at 9:39 AM  
Blogger Christina said...

Oooh, I'm glad you thought it was good, because that means I probably will too, yay! Also, that means it will probably take a firm stance against abusive relationships, which was pretty much my main concern.

Yeah, The Archived comes out in a couple days. lol.

Oh wow, I did not know that!

Blogger Christina said...

Oh thanks! I don't do much but these book hauls, though I'd sort of like to. I'm just not sure WHAT I would do. Hrm. I love my bookshelves too.

Ha, god, I was extra crazy this week.

Oh, don't mind him. He loves this! Loves it. And, even if he doesn't, his job is to be entertaining. This is why I feed him.

I didn't used to, but I've learned in my tracking of imprints.

Blogger Christina said...

I know! I've read Cinder and I had to own it, and I'm listed, so I just went ahead and bought it.

Ha, it's not the camera so much as being held like that against his will.

Whoa, The Red Knight looks even more massive than my copy of The Diviners. You might be able to knock someone out with that...

And you won a copy of The Archived! Jealous!
Am also curious to see what you think of Cinder since I actually have yet to read it.

You cat is cute :D

Blogger Christina said...

Ha, It's not as big as The Diviners, but I think it is way longer. O_O The Diviners also has the advantage of being hardback.

Oh, I've already read Cinder, but it's awesome. Recommend to everyone.

Thanks, I am fond of his face.
