Book Haul #9: In Which I Uphold The Boozy Book Haul Standard

Posted April 26, 2014 by Debby in Book Hauls, Vlogs / 10 Comments

I’m back! Since I didn’t do any book hauls while I was on hiatus, quite a stack has accumulated. And let’s not forget that due to the precedent set forth by Christina, book hauls should now be boozy book hauls. I drank a bit. So I rambled a bit. Or, you know, for 30 minutes. I CUT STUFF. But it’s still 24 minutes, so I’m sorry. I fail at vlog making. BUT WHATEVERRRRR I do things because they are fun FOR ME. And I hope you manage to find it entertaining too!

  1. AHHHH I BOUGHT ASK AGAIN LATER LAST WEEK TOO! Because I loved it so as an egalley and wanted to be able to hug it in person! You have sound book buying logic.

    Haaa. How big WAS your grin, Debby? πŸ˜€

    Totes agree on TWC. Soooo beautiful, but not quite as flawlessly, transcendentally magnificent as ’twas made out to be. That finished copy is SO BEAUTIFUL THOUGH, RIGHT?

    LOOOOOSING ITTTTTTTTT

    You did a cool little dance thing while talking about steamy scenes and i trolololol

    “sorry if that’s what new adult books led you to believe… being a new adult is actually kind of a scary period in your life” YUSSSSS preach Debby, preach.

    OMG I can’t wait to have drunken Debby time next month. You and me and Christina and Gaby shall get drunk togethaaaa and oh what fun we shall have.

    Huhh. I was sort of “eh” on getting around to reading Parallel, but you have intriiiigued me. NOOOO DAMAGED BOOKS SO SAAAD

    SERIOUSLY WHY DID THEY CHANGE THOSE BURN FOR BURN FIRE WITH FIRE COVERS THEY ARE SO GOOD WHAT WERE THEY THIIIINKING. Your book buying logic remains ever so sound.

    KINSLAYER! More like Feelslayer. That booook.

    “FRIGHTFUL amounts of wine”! More like frightful amounts of WIN #boom

    FAKING IT FAKING IT FAKING IT FAKING IT
    NO WORDS CADE MAX FLAAAAAIL

    Holy crap your A Game of Thrones is sooooo purdy

    I bought those UK Laini Taylor covers because they are just so gorgeousiful. the DoGaM cover is INSANE. SO SHIMMERY. SO MESMERIZING. I didn’t even know about the drawing signing promotion thingy and i got one thought sheer luck

    Lololol Deep Blue

    • YES. Books we love we must be able to hug in their totally finished forms πŸ™‚ That is TOTALLY SOUND BOOK BUYING LOGIC.

      >.> I grin. Widely. SO?!

      Oh god I’m terrified to watch this video again now to see what you mean about dancing. I do not remember dancing. Oh god.

      EPIC DRUNKEN FUN TIMES IN NYCCCCCC JUST THREE WEEKSSSSSS EEEEEEEEEEEP

      YES READ PARALLEL READ PARALLEL

      I will forever mourn the Burn for Burn cover change. Forever. Just like Perfect Ruin.

      β€œFRIGHTFUL amounts of wine”! More like frightful amounts of WIN #boom

      *snorts*

  2. I’m SO GLAD you’re back from your hiatus! Wooooo

    You got a crapload of awesome books this week! I’m jealous. I’m still looking forward to reading The Winner’s Curse and Vicious and Dreams of Gods & Monsters!

    BTW I LOVE YOUR DRESS! And I thinking drinking while filming is such a good idea! I think you should definitely do more videos haha.
    Valerie recently posted ARC Review: Second StarMy Profile

    • Aww, thank you πŸ™‚ I do like making videos, I just don’t have the time usually. πŸ™ Hopefully once I graduate, get a job and settle down somewhere I’ll have more freedom πŸ™‚

  3. Bahahaha, I am laughing already. Like 15 seconds in. “But I’m fiiiiiiiine.”

    I failed you on the drinky book haul but I will do that again.

    OOOH, A RANT.

    SCHROEDER! Oh wow, I never remember when things came out. I’m also glad I’m not the only one who stares into the distance when I don’t remember a thing I need to know. YES. GIANT GRIN BOOK. Whatever, you are adorable. If they are creeped out by you, they are monsters.

    You still call them star. ORANGES. Orange stars. Starry oranges. Lol, another rant. This is fun. People telling you it was high fantasy. i guess I prefer that to the argument it’s not a fantasy. The cover is so shiny.

    Losing It. I AM SO GLAD YOU LOVED IT. I cannot wait til I read your review. But, yes, yessssss. I am so glad I did not fail you. Yes, more stuff about careers and planning and growing up. Being a new adult IS scary. I’m supposedly not one anymore, but um yeah. I still feel like that tbh.

    Katherine Howard is such a jerk. No one likes Katherine Howard.

    You WILL get to more wine soon, though. Bahahah.

    Book buying ban went well, huh? Adult books are so expensive. It’s the worst. Oooh, I didn’t know the main characters were evil. I also bought it, but didn’t read it.

    Oh yeah, Faye didn’t love Maid Sama. Womp womp.

    I will read Parallel someday. BOOKS SHOULD NEVER SHOW UP DAMAGED.

    “I’m not even joking right now.” baha.

    Yay, you got the US cover of Kinslayer. Two copies of Stormdancer. Haha. Oh man, I didn’t know you were stalled in Kinslayer. Saaaad, but mood happens. I thought Kinslayer was a lot more consistently paced that Stormdancer (though I loved both completely). Eeeeee. Finish ITTTTT.

    MOAR WINE.

    The torture of a week without Faking It. Yes, the chemistry is ridiculous. I do not remember the ending at all. >.> We rated the books the same! *high fives* “I need to remind myself not to drink that day.” <-no, please do.

    I love your GOT cover. That bookmark is not awkward.

    I'll be reading Days of Blood and Starlight and Dreams of Gods and Monsters soon, if you want to join me. I really don't like the UK DOBAS cover.

    HOW DID YOU PUT THE COVER UP ON YOUR HAUL? MY MIND IS BLOWN. Blythe really liked Deep Blue, but I am scared of it.

    I was a little afraid you were about to fall asleep on camera just then. Slightly tipsy. Teehee.

    • I WAS TOTALLY FINE CHRISTINA PSHHHHHHH

      I expect a very good boozy book haul from you soon. My next one will probably also be epic. I don’t know. I’m guessing. I do need to work on getting some tequila though. Tequila makes life fun.

      A GIRL GRINNING MADLY ON A TRAIN SHOULD BE NOTHING OTHER THAN CUTE. Yes.

      I knowwwww I always say stars πŸ™ I’m sorry. Next time, I’ll say oranges. I shall remember this. (maybe)

      I will always get to more wine soon. IT’S FRIDAY. WEEKEND. TIME FOR WINE.

      πŸ˜› My book buying ban had some flexibilities so MOSTLY I did hold to it. Mostly. Sort of. Kind of. Whaaatever. And yes, Vicious’s main characters are like the evil villains in superhero stories or something. Or so I’ve heard. Whatever. I’ll find out when I read it. …Eventually.

      Pssssshhhhhh people who don’t like Maid Sama can get. She tricked me. ;____; While filming she was liking it.

      I do want to finish Kinslayer but I dunno. It was a bit slow for me and just pretty dense. After thesis, when I have all the freedom in the world.

      YAY FAKING IT. I do not want to look like a giggly bumbling idiot in front of Cora Carmack, so no thanks >.> Is there even alcohol at the Javits? *desperate for a way out*

      MAGIC COVER MAGIC. No, it’s my editing software. I just put a picture on top of the video. I dunno if all software have this feature, but they should? I dunno.

  4. Happy Kingsday to you too! πŸ™‚ Did you do something fun? This dress looks great on you, by the way. It’s cute.

    Oh yes, I love the cover from The winner’s curse. I need to read my copy soon. I can’t wait for your reviews of Losing it & Faking it πŸ™‚ I’m still very wary of NA books.. so who knows, you might persuade me to give it a shot for the first time. I really wonder if I would like it.

    I want Vicious too πŸ˜€ I liked her other book (the near witch) so I’m curious to see how I feel about this one.

    YEAY, I’m happy you like the books from George Martin. The world-building and cast, it’s all so detailed and amazing.

    Oh my, you have the gorgeous edition from Dreams of gods and monster <3

    Happy reading!

    • Haha, nahhh I stayed home on King’s Day. I had to work and I don’t really like crowds and stuff, so whatever. But I wore orange πŸ˜›

      Whooooooo I hope to convince you to read Cora Carmack then because seriouslyyyy they’re good πŸ™‚

  5. Awesome book haul πŸ™‚ I must say, you convinced me to read Losing It the other week. I’d seen it popping up in a few places and then you had a tweet about it so I thought “Right, that’s it! I’m reading it right now!” I then immediately downoaded the ebook. AND IT WAS AMAZING. I’m really looking forward to your review πŸ™‚ And you’ve convinced me to read Faking It now too! Mmm Cade. What a sweetheart.
    Keep up the boozy book hauls! They’re great! πŸ™‚
