Bookish Haul {1}

Since I'm too busy to follow a posting schedule, I figured I'll start doing book hauls whenever I feel like it instead of doing it every Saturday for Stacking the Shelves (which is mainly the reason why I seem to able to do them only once in a blue moon). And here's the first one up!

(From L-R)
Ruin and Rising / Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo (signed!)
The Assassin's Blade by Sarah J. Maas
End of Days by Susan Ee
21 Proms (signed!)

I got the Leigh Bardugo and E. Lockhart books for their book signings, so they're all signed! Sadly though, I've only read Frankie and We Were Liars, and I'm currently reading Ruin and Rising. I got the Six of Crows ARC from the bloggers' forum during Leigh's visit, and I'll be reading that probably next week. As for the other books, I've only read Daughter of Smoke and Bone. I'll be finishing that series first before re-reading the first two books in the Penryn and the End of Days trilogy and getting on to the last book, and then after that I'll re-read Throne of Glass and continue the rest of the series.

God. For someone who has very little time to read, I sure have a lot of guts to re-read :))

A Bookish Day: Leigh Bardugo in Manila!

Just yesterday, I met another author in my long list of favorite authors, but this lady's special because the books she's written are some of the titles I've been reading more thoroughly than usual as part of "learning" how to get my high fantasy WIP just right, so in a way, she's also kind of like a teacher to me. And yes, there were starry eyes involved in my part the entire time we were in the same room. I think I'm starstruck even as I type this recap. Jesus.
