September #OTSPsecretsister and other Book mail

At the end of last week, I received a fabulous September secret sister package featuring a childhood favorite movie and a full-color manga that has Marie from The Aristocats 🙂  My secret sister is hitting it out of the park, and this is only the second month!  It also reminded me that I haven’t done a book haul post in many weeks, so here’s all the goodies I’ve received from various places.

September seems to be overflowing with exciting releases, both new titles and continuing series.  I’m so sad that I won’t be able to read all these books right now, but someday they’ll make it to the top of my TBR.

Waiting on Wednesday: Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor

Muse of Nightmares (Strange the Dreamer, #2)

Hardcover, 528 pages
Expected publication: October 2nd 2018 by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers

Um, yeah.  This review is going to be a spewing of feelings while trying not to be spoilery.  Which. Is. Hard. So. Hard!  I needed to read this to find closure from the long wait, and I’m glad that I started and finished so quickly (back in July); however, that means that there is no one to discuss and rant with while I am writing this review!  Sorry if this doesn’t quite make sense, but I’m writing this review while the story is fresh in my head in July then scheduling it to publish now in September, a few weeks before it’s actual release date.

Post 300! Favorite Series/Authors Spotlight

I just so happened to notice that this will be my 300th post since moving platforms, and I thought I’d do something a little different and talk about some of my favorite authors and series.  And why I love them so much!  Be prepared to see a range of older publications, some out of print possibly, and newer raging phenomenon.  These are in no particular order as I love them all the same 🙂

Quick note: This turned out to be a huge list!  Because of this I took out any stand alone books and graphic novels.  Hopefully, I’ll build each of those their own individual lists soon 🙂

Book Haul, #otspsecretsister, and Goodies for August 2018

It’s been awhile again since I’ve shared the goodies that I’ve picked up.  Here’s my last OTSP Secret Sister package from last round from my “sister” Crystal 🙂  She very much so spoiled me with all these hot chocolate flavors and adorable eeveelution bookmarks that she made!  And I’m excited to get caught up with this series as this is the final book.

Next up is some trades and my first granted bookish wish.  I love The Testing and wish Netflix or someone would make a movie or series out of this one!

The top row of the first pic and the following pic are all from work over the last month or so.  I’m really excited to read like all of them!  Then the second row includes 2 bookish wishes, a trade, and an art print that I paid for.  Thanks everyone!

And, since it slipped in at the end of the month.  Here’s my amazing August secret sister package from my new sister, going by the name, Mrs. Peacock!  I can’t wait to dig in, and those truffles are fantastic 🙂
