Book Photo Challenge & Book Haul

Not that my pictures are any good, but I decided to work my way through Books & Cupcakes photo challenge. I started off with a day or two from the February challenge, but now I’m sticking with the March one.

Day 1 – reading this month

I’ve read this book, years before, as a child. I read it again for my medievalisms paper and I fell in love with it again. (I’ll be posting about this book very soon.)

Day 2 – a book I couldn’t put down

I can never put a Rick Riordan book down. Ever.

Day 3 – last reads / recommendations

I’m not a sport person but I loved this series. I started it for the relationship I heard about on Tumblr, but I stayed for the main character (Neil Josten), in who I saw a lot of myself in. Love this YA series so much. And the first book is free!

Day 4 – reading place

I usually read on the train, but at home, it’s either at my computer desk or on my bed.

Day 5 – someone reading (my sister)

The Land of Far Beyond by Enid Blyton. We’ve started reading this book together (for the third time or something).


I snagged some choice quotes from the books I’ve been reading this month.

from The Help
from A Perfect Gentle Knight

“This king’s ruled long enough—it’s time to tear his castle down (The Raven Court by Nora Sakavic)

“How else could I orient myself in this sea of gray?” (The Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins)


One last thing – I went to Value Village with my mom and managed to whittle down all the books I was holding to just two: a better copy of The Lord of the Rings and Mansfield Park, which I have been looking for a good copy of for a long time because it’s my favourite Austen book.


I just wish I was a millionaire so I could buy more books.

When going to Value Village makes you cry because you can’t buy all the books.
