Book Haul 2017

Jan 2017

I recently went to Barnes and Noble and used my Amazon prime account and decided to treat myself!

I try to keep my bookshelf organized–I organize it at least once a month. Thank God for my Kindle or my room would literally be filled with books and my mom, who has OCD, would disown me lol!

I have looked all over Pinterest and those helpful but time-consuming DIY tricks for organizing it better but I think I have done the most I can with such a small space.


I cannot wait until I am older and I have my own space! My entire apartment will be covered in bookshelves! A girl can dream. If you have any useful advice, I would love to hear it! I tried to organize my books by color and because I had an ego stage in middle school–like most normal people–most of my books are black.

Celtic Legends: Heroes and Warriors, Myths and Monsters by Micheal Kerrigan

I have always been fascinated by Celtic mythology and the history, so finding this book on sale for $9.98 urged me to try it out.

Poppy was also interested in the text and decided to read it with me 🙂

A Treasury of Irish Fairy and Folk Tales–Barnes and Noble Collection

Parallel to the previous book, the collection allows me to indulge in my various fairy tales. Fantasy is my favorite genre so I cannot wait to read it.

A Pomegranate and the Maiden by Tamara Agha-Jaffar

I love mythology and Greek mythology is my personal favorite. I recently wrote a paper analyzing Hecate and her origins. I have decided to write a paper on Persephone and wanted to read another interpretation of the infamous kidnapping of Persephone.

Women and Goddesses In Myth and Sacred Text by Tamara Agha-Jaffar

This is a great text to study if you are interested in mythology. This focuses on goddesses from various cultures. A great read!

Monsterology: The Complete Book of Monstrous Beasts by Dugald A. Steer

Let’s be honest here–the illustration is what drew me in. I love the idea of the unknown and what-ifs, so reading about various monsters of legend is fun for me to get into.

Fairies: The Myths, Legends, & Lore by Skye Alexander

I love Faeries and love learning about them. This book is pretty informative and has charming illustrations along with it. There is a part of me that hopes faeries are real or once were and in the second novel I am currently writing, there will be faeries mentioned.

You know when you enter in those Goodreads giveaways and you lose hope because 1 million enter? Well this lucky chick must have been good because I won this book. Woohoo and its hardcover! Can’t wait to read it!

the princess saves herself in this one by amanda lovelace

I love poetry! I cannot wait to start this book. Like c’mon, the title reeled me!

i love my love by Reyna Biddy

Her poetry has been all over IG and twitter, her words piercing the soul and I was pleasantly surprised when she appeared on Kehlani’s album. I cannot wait to start reading this!
