Book Haul: Winter Releases 2015

winter-snow-2015

Snow has finally arrived in my part of the neighbourhood! While it would have been wonderful to have snow on Christmas day, it’s better late than never. Living in Canada, I, as well as other Canadians, love their seasons and I was starting to miss the snow. Winter isn’t really winter without a little white on the ground. Now is the best time to curl up on the couch, sitting by the fire with a cup of hot chocolate and marshmallows alongside a good book.

Book Haul: Fall Releases 2015

While blockbuster movies’ time to shine is during the summertime, Fall is a big deal in the book publishing industry. During the autumn season, all the highly anticipated books are released. Tons of readers, book lovers, and bloggers eagerly await for the books they are most excited for. I’ve been lucky enough to get my hands on early copies of some of the great books coming out this Fall.

Here are the books that are now calling my shelves home:

My First Booktube Unboxing

Very excited to share my very first Booktube unboxing video!

You might notice that these books came out last year. I made the video late 2014, but finally had a chance to edit and upload it now. A few more unboxing videos are on their way. Be sure to keep an eye out for them.

If you’d like to check out my other Youtube videos, feel free to check them out here: My Youtube channel.

Book Haul: Building My Library: Book Outlet Christmas Haul Edition

Building My Library is my personal weekly book haul meme. I share the books that I’m adding to my reading collection. This will include: books I buy from the store or online, borrow from friends or the public library,  advanced reading copies (books for review), gifts, audio books, and ebooks.

I’m a little behind on this one, but here it is.  I treated myself to some books for Christmas, mostly ones that would complete my series collections or ones that I wasn’t 100% committed to unless I got it for a cheaper price. I’ve always wanted to try out Book Outlet because I’ve heard of the great bargains from other book bloggers. My Book Outlet haul only cost me $30 (that includes shipping and all the books were hard covers); I saved over $100!

Here are the books that have been calling my shelves home since Christmas 2014:

Building My Library is my personal weekly book haul meme. I share the books that I’m adding to my reading collection. This will include: books I buy from the store or online, borrow from friends or the public library,  advanced reading copies (books for review), gifts, audio books, and ebooks.

A lot of us aren’t ready to see summer go, but the weather is getting cooler and school has started for some people. It’s also time to welcome in the Fall season. Publishers have already started doing that, sending over their Fall books to bloggers. I’m personally excited for autumn. It’s my favourite time of the year.

I celebrated early with this:

Book to Film

popcorn-movie-image

Books have been adapted into movies. In recent years, it has become a popular practice to transport words from pages and human imagination onto the silver screen.

As a book lover, it can be an exciting and terrifying experience. Movies can reaffirm your love for a book or destroy its magic.

An unspoken rule among most book lovers is read the book first, and then go see the movie.

In a feature I call “Book to Film,” I will be examining how movies compare and contrast to their respective books.
