Book Haul: June 2014

I've been trying to be extra conscious with everything I've been buying lately and that's crossing over into my book buying as well. I'm trying to make going to the library a habit, that way I'll be sure before I commit to a new book/series to add to my collection. 

It's been way, way too long since I've last been to a bookstore. All the nearby ones have closed and my independent bookstore is still pretty far. Amazon has become my friend lately, but I want to try and make an effort to support my local indy more in the coming months. 

-Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass 1) by Sarah J. Maas
-Crown of Midnight (Throne of Glass 2) by Sarah J. Maas

-X-Men: First Class

I had only heard a few things about the Throne of Glass series and decided to pick up the first book at my local library. It's a little different than what I normally read, I mean it's still young adult, but I can't even remember the last time I read a true fantasy book. I loved it so much I bought it and book two, Crown of Midnight! You can check out my review for book one, Throne of Glass, here.

My mom and I are huge fans of the superhero/ Marvel universe, but had never seen X-Men so we rented it for a Friday movie night. I seriously loved it, but my mom is still on the fence. I love the cast, story and can't wait to see the second one! (Also, James McAvoy is Professor X and ya'll know how I love him!)

-Glasses c/o Firmoo. 
A huge thank you to Firmoo for sending me a beautiful pair of glasses to review. I've had them for about a week and love them already! Be sure to keep an eye out for a review this coming week!
