Hello,

So last week, I went to my city’s first sorta Comic Con! It was fun and I bought an assortment of artwork (: If you scroll to the bottom, there’s a quick teaser (that’s not really) haha. This Sunday is the annual “Word on the Street” Book festival! I’m super excited to check it out. Also, I just realized that Chef Michael Smith is going to be there! Chef at Home! Nothing else too intersting. Hope everyone has an awesome week!

IMG_2358(01) Cracked by Eliza Crewe
(02) Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine

Thanks to Strange Chem for the ARC of Cracked! It’s the first in the Soul Eater series and it sounds pretty awesommmme. Soul Eating! The other book I picked up this week was Ella Enchanted (in hardcover) because you can always do with having a copy of Ella Enchanted on your shelf. Always.

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00071](03) Lost and Found by Nicole Williams

Been seeing and hearing way too may good things about this guy to not pick it up! I think book three of this series just came out, so now I have three to read without the wait! I’ve only read like two chapters but already I love Rowen and Jesse’s interaction (: Also, purdy colours for the cover~.

Breaking the Rules - L.K. Lewis(04) Breaking the Rules by L.K. Lewis

Thanks to the author, and AToMR Tours for providing the copy. It looks and sounds like a cute corporate romance read. I’m hoping for lots of funny shenanigans at work haha.  I also like the simplicity of the cover.

IMG_2363(05) Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen
(06) Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins

Last minute additions that I picked up at the thrift store just yesterday! I been meaning to check out Sarah Dessen and well it was only 3.99. And grabbed Hex Hall too, because it’s a pretty funny series.

So, this part isn’t really book haul, but a quick teaser of my time at the Sask Entertainment Expo. My city is kinda small so this was sorta of the first attempt at something to the extent of comic con last week. I was only able to attend part of one day but still managed buy a bunch of stuff. Less books, more art but pretty art haha. I’m going to try to make a full post of the stuff I bought next week if you guys are interested in seeing it (:

Me & The Joker matched. What, what!
