I bought two more books today…

And yes, I am fully aware that I bought six books over the last week or so, but this is not what this post is about. Oh no my dear followers. This post is about what else I saw in my lovely book-store today.

My lovely, local book-store got some new books in this month and I was excited to see exactly what new books were now available to me. And while I was noting books that I’d like to get when I have more money and making the tough decision of which ones I should get now and calculating how much money it will cost, my eyes fell upon a book that literally stopped me in my tracks. I was staring at it for a full minute before I realized what it was about. 

This book my friends, was none other than;

What. The. Actual. Fudge?

Is this for real? Are they for real?? I swear if I wasn’t holding the actual book in my hand, I wouldn’t believe if you told me that something like this existed!

Okay, Okay, I’m exaggerating, but I mean come on! Fifty Shades of Dorian Gray? My mind can’t even process something like this! Again, exaggerating. 

And for those who are curious, here’s the synopsis;

Meet artist Rosemary Hall and follow her inevitable downfall brought by her lust for the famous Dorian Gray—a tale both familiar and new in this brilliant erotic mash up of one of the world’s most beloved novels. With a mix of old fashioned Victorian debauchery and erotic 21st century lust this cleverly sexed-up classic will leave you wanting more!

First published to sensational scandal amidst accusations that the novel was hedonist, unclean, and depicted distorted views of morality The Picture of Dorian Gray was a hit back in the day. In 1890 the Daily Chronicle wrote that Wilde’s novel “will taint every young mind that comes in contact with it.” Well Victorian critics, gird your loins and prepare to meet Audrey Ember’s Fifty Shades of Dorian Gray: hotter, lewder, sexier, steamier, and more morally corrupt than Oscar Wilde’s original story! 

Rediscover this celebrated novel as it traces the moral degeneration of a beautiful young Londoner seduced by art and beauty into a cruel and reckless pursuer of pleasure. Meet artist Rosemary Hall and follow her inevitable downfall brought by her lust for the famous Dorian Gray—a tale both familiar and new in this brilliant erotic mash up of one of the world’s most beloved novels. 

With a mix of old fashioned Victorian debauchery and erotic 21st century lust this cleverly sexed-up classic will leave you wanting more!

It’s four hundred pages long and I just found out that it was published in December 2012… Wow, we really do get our books late (O_o)… Click the photo for more details, reviews and etc. Please note that this is just my opinion on this book. I know that there are others out there who are into books like these. In fact, my best friend is a huge fan of Fifty Shades of Grey. I’m not judging those who books like those. I’m just saying that it kind if insulting to a classic to do something like to it. Again, my opinion. And if you don’t agree, cool. I ain’t here to fight anyone down on their choice of reading. So we cool?

Awesome sauce (^w^)

Well at least my day wasn’t totally ruined by poorly written books. I did manage to get two books that I really wanted to read.

AND

Yay me! Also, I have three book reviews to do by the end of this week. I’m being very lackadaisical with my reviews. I mean, I read three lovely and wonderful books and I should write about them, right?

Anyway, happy reading everyone. It’s cold and rainy. The perfect setting to curl up with my stuffed bear and a good book.

No internet? Have no fear! Read a book instead!

I haven’t had internet since Friday. Why? My guess is that a really tall truck passed by and yanked the net cable down. And when they saw what they did, they just toss the cable in our yard…

image

-_-… really?

My family (except for me and my dad) were so upset. No net or TV for the whole weekend? How would they survive?

Luckily, I always have a book at hand. I started reading ‘BZRK’ by Michael Grant

image

Honestly, this book should come with a warning.

Oh wait, it did…

image

It should come with other warnings like, ‘not for the paranoid’ or even a glossary for those of us who don’t know much about biology or nanotechnology.

I’ll explain why in my review.

So yeah, even without internet I can still have an interesting weekend.

I spent a total of $253TT (aprox $40US) in books….

Not including ‘Clockwork Princess’ by Cassandra Clare and ‘Every Day’ by David Levithan. So, yesterday, while doing errands for my mom, I took the opportunity presented and went book crazy. I saw books that I just could not pass up! Why? I’ll show you, why!

Image

Fragments by Dan Wells. Did I mention how much I love Dan Wells? Did I also mention that I live in Trinidad? And that new books take a log time to get here?

How could I not get the second book in the Partials series by one of my favourite author?? Right? Right?

Image

BRZK by Michael Grant. Another one of my favourite authors! Who haven’t read or heard of the Gone Series?? This man is a genius what he does? How could I not buy BRZK?

Ok, maybe I’ve nerding out a bit too much… Nah! xD

Image

Through the Ever Night by Veronica Rossi. I loved her first book. I read it out in one sitting. I have to know what happens next, also I believe it was the last copy in the store, I couldn’t pass up the chance to get the book!

And last but not least;

Image

Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver. I remember when I spent endless night looking for an online copy of Delirium, cause they didn’t have any hard-copies of it in our bookstores. I begged people on my other book blog to help me find a copy. Finally, someone sent me a link to it. I was sooo grateful for her help. I read the book in a day or two. It was really good. After I read, I suddenly started seeing actual copies of the book all over. Plus the second book. So, of course I had to get it.

So, was it worth spending that much money on these books? Hell, yeah! I have no regrets, just a bigger book collection. 😀

Image

I mean, look at them! Have you seen anything so beautiful before? Yes, yes, I know. I’m weird about my books. It’s just, they make me happy when I’m feeling down. They provide me an escape from myself. 

Books saved me. That’s all I can say for now. So, yeah, I’ll geek out about them as much as I want to. (*・ω・)

Have a good day!

Catching Fire Trailer

Does anyone else thinks that this would a hard movie to watch? I mean, ‘Catching Fire’ was a beautiful, sad and painful read. To see it all brought to life? I don’t know if my heart can take it. I think I’ll be crying my eyes out for most of the movie… V_V

I thought that I should put up a pic of my lovely bookshelf ^w^

Look at what I found!

CLOCKWORK PRINCESS! In MY local book store! And it was the last copy! How lucky am I??

I literally had to bite my hand to stop myself from squealing in the middle of the book store. I was THAT happy and surprised to find a copy. It cost nearly $90TT (that’s like $14 in US) but I didn’t care! I grabbed it and skipped to the counter and bought it. Funnily enough, the man who cashed my book turned out to be a TMI fan as well. We chatted about the books and the upcoming ‘City of Bones’ movie. It just made my day.

And now my collection is complete!

Image

Isn’t it just beautiful? I can’t wait to read it!

Of course, ‘Clockwork Princess’ wasn’t the only book I bought that day. I also got ‘Every Day’ by David Levithan 😀

Image

Isn’t it lovely? (my own edit lol)

By the way, the photos are linked to their books respectively 😀 And that ends my gushing and fangirling over books. For now >;D

Have a good day!
