Books, Books Galore!


Hi jammers, it's your boi. Yes. DAT BOI.

Ok. That has got to be one of my weirdest intros ever. XD

I wanna talk about books today. You all probably know by now that books are my life. I read loads of books all the time. I talk about books all the time. I look for books in my library all the time.

My family loves books. A LOT. As in, sometimes on a day where all my family is home, we'd all sit around in the living room, sticking our noses into books and drinking coffees or mochas. ;)

When people tell me that they hate books, I'm like, "WHAT? HOW DO YOU LIVE?" XD

Well, before I blabber too much about lovely books, I wanna get to my main point. (Yes, I actually have a MAIN point!)


Yesterday, I got more books!! Squeee! :D
 
Lemme explain. There was this book fair thing in my mall yesterday. It comes every year. There are loads of used books. Some in looking very unused and some looking reaaally used. I found quite a few good books. ;)
 
Me and my two sisters did a mini photo shoot of my books. (Some are Koolestkat's and some we will share.) I really want to show you guys the pictures but...
 
Before you keep reading, I just wanna make it clear that I hate spoilers for books. (Or movies/TV shows.) So if you have read one of these books, please leave all spoilers out of your comment. It's respectful to everyone.
 
Thank you! ^-^
 
 
Here is the stack of all the books me and Koolest got. Surprisingly, I have only read two of these books before! That's totally different compared to other years.
 
Ok, so as you can see, the first book on the stack is "The Fellowship of the Ring" which is a book Koolest picked, not me. Along with "The Hunger Games".
 
The next one is "Wizard of Oz". It's a very old classic. And it's literally unabridged! But it's so teeny! :P Koolest is collecting the whole Oz series. (Yes, there's a series of books! It's not just one book!)
 
Next one is "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory". Again, it's for my sis. :D
 
Next up is "Artemis the Loyal". It's a Goddess Girls book. I'm kinda hooked onto Greek mythology because of Percy Jackson. XD
 
The next one is a Nancy Drew book called "Action!" I'm kinda collecting the series. ;)
 
Ah, the next one is "The Abduction" by Gordon Korman! I like his books and this series is really good and fast paced.
 
Next up is three Candy Apple books. "The Accidental Cheerleader", "Miss Popularity", and "Super Sweet 13". I bet these books will be great. ^.^

AHHH, MY ALL TIME FAVORITES!
 
 
*silent pause for the great epicness of the books*
 
Two books from the second Rick Riordan Olympian series! And they were gently used! And they were $22 in store but me and Koolest got them for $3 each! Eeeeeeekkk!!! I can't wait to read "The Throne of Fire" and "The Serpent's Shadow"! So much epic on those covers, I tell ya.
 
(NO SPOILERS FOR THESE BOOKS, PLEASE!)
 
And the last one on the stack is "A Smart Girl's Guide to Friendship Troubles". I really like American Girl books. They are super helpful. ;) And this was a way cheaper price then what it was in the store.
 
 
Well, that's all! :D
 
Before I go, I just wanna remind you guys that my party is next week Saturday at 2:30 CST. Also, remember to enter the den contest! For more details on both of these things, scroll down a little.
 
Have an amazing day, peeps! XD
 
Jam on!
 

Yay, I'm using Violet's drawing as my siggy! (Perhaps I
should make a new siggy to change things up a bit?)

    6. Myeh. Sixties-cheesy. XD But good for their time. I liked 'em. C:

      They were so old, there was a little rainbow-hued message that came up at the beginning of everyone and informed me that the cartoon was "IN COLOR!" XDD

    5. "Some of those are I think, like girly girl books *throws up*"

      I read a lot of girly girl books!!! XD I really like SOME romances. Others are like, "Ew, gross. STOP IT STOP IT STOPIT!" XD

      But everyone has different opinions on books. ;)

      I read... UMMMM... "The Door Within", I think. XD

  6. I'm more like an encyclobedia kid, and I read encyclopedias almost daily XD I'm not,like, the biggest fan of novels and stuff, yet I love books by Ray Bradbury :P Also, I need you to do something for me if you can, since you have read many books XD:
    So, our literature teacher want us to read 2 literature books, one for Christmas and one for Easter (holidays) I need you to suggest 2 books that are:
    ~Rather hard to understand o3o
    ~Spicy (lol XD)
    ~Mysterious :P
    AND, THE MOST IMPORTANT OF ALLLLLLLLLLLLLL:
    ~Must NOT contain any ANIMAL deaths. Murders are OK to read (and for me, to watch :P Yas I loaf horror films), but I can't understand why some people ''kill'' animals for no reason. Yah I'm wacky don't judge me :P I don't mean idc if someone gets killed, I'm just a little (lot) sensitive when an animal gets hurt in a story/movie. And IRL of course.

    1. Really? Encyclopedias? Just curious, what do you find so interesting about reading encyclopedias? XD I'm just curious. ;)
      Hmmm... ANY book? Hmm, I'll have to think. XD
      Animal deaths? Yeah, they are pretty bad, I guess. I personally don't mind, but it depends on the animal. Now if some person is just killing animals for no good reason, well, that's bad. But if it's hurting you or someone, I don't know...

      Delete
    2. Encyclopedias.... I kinda find them boring... XD I just love fiction. :D People killing animals?? I don't mind. Inless its in a really cruel way for no reason. I love animals!

      Delete
    3. Lol I don't judge you for reading encyclopedias. I read dictionaries sometimes XDD

      Hmm, that's a pretty tricky criteria to fill. I'd say warriors but you don't like animal deaths... Hmm... I don't know.

      heh... *edges away*

      Gurl, if you don't like animal deaths, never read my fanfic AJ Adventures.

      Never.

      I know it sounds innocent but in later episodes you can clearly see that I sudden got obsessed with dystopian fiction... Yeah...

      I don't really mind animal deaths unless its like a human abusing them. I guess its because I loaf warriors and thus ended up writing, drawing and I guess animating dark stuff.

      Never judge me lol

    1. I always headcanon Zios to be a spirit that in life form is a heron. So we have pretty similar opinions XD
