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.

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 🙂

#ALAAC18 Book Haul Part 1

For the three nights that I stayed in a hotel room, I was able to spread my books out and take pictures.  I was not able to do that with the fun books I picked up on Monday, so today I just have pictures of what I picked up.  Tomorrow’s post will go more in depth for the various titles and who I picked them up for.  I would like to point out the signed Buffy the Vampire Slayer board game that I won during the raffle at ALA Gaming, which is one of my favorite additions to the conference.  Can’t wait to test out this game!

Recent #booksfortrade Book Haul

It’s been a bit busy for me, and I haven’t made the time to blog about any of my recent book hauls, which is a shame as I have received some truly amazing books!  So, I decided to break them into a couple of posts to keep size down.  Here’s section one with all the books I’ve received through trade!
