  1. We just ordered a colleague a Star Trek commander baby-gro (for his newborn not him). They are so cute! I love your iPad cover too.

  5. Ohmygosh! The little Zelda onesie might be the cutest thing I've seen in my life!

  6. I really liked the Scorpio Races! Rebel Heart on the other hand was a little disappointing compared to Blood Red Road but still a good read! I haven't read the others so I will wait to hear what you think of them!

    1. Bummed to hear you didn't love Rebel Heart. I think I'm reading it next so I'll be curious to see how I like it! :)

  7. Oh, you got some amazing books! I really want to read the Percy Jackson series, as well as something by Tamora Pierce! She seems to be the go-to person for strong heroines in fantasy. I guess I would have read her if I'd grown up with books written in English...
    I had no idea there was a Game of Thrones graphic novel o.O

    I hope you enjoy all that you got! Thanks for stopping by my post earlier :) (Love your blog name, by the way)

    1. Percy Jackson FOREVER. Honestly It's the best.

    2. That would be an understatement to the gloriousness that is Percy Jackson. I try so hard to get people invested in this series, but when I tell them it's mg fiction they lose interest, which is really sad because this series is phenomenal.

  12. Hehe Zelda Onesie :P The Scorpio Races is SUCH a good book. It's just *sigh* fantastic. Read it soon! Hopefully you like it. Also, the Song of the Lioess series is something I've reread multiple times. I cannot express how much I love that series.

  13. I loved Rebel Heart. But then again, that's one of my favorite series. The Zelda onesie is to die for. Great haul!

    Thanks for visiting my haul.

  14. I love the Link onesie! It really makes me want a baby.

    As for the books I read Tamora Pierce's Alanna books over and over in middle school. It's been a while since I've read them, but would love to go back and reread them.

  15. Yay to Percy Jackson! I also love the iPad cover that you got! So cute! Happy reading! :)

  16. Just so you know, your new child is going to be the flyest Ganondorf-slayer to ever walk into the realm of reality. He/she will be walking around with Triforces on his/her toes for crying out loud. I LOVE THE ONESIE. Is there a larger size, do you think?

    As I continue onto this mailbox, however, I realize how much of a FAILURE AT LIFE I am. I own PJ 1-5 and it remains unread. I have yet to read anything by Tamora Pierce when at least two of her books have been haunting my Amazon cart. And Game of Thrones... don't even get me started *sigh*

    And that iPad cover is PERFECTION.

    Happy reading :)

    1. ALSO, despite the fact that the first Percy Jackson movie was a bigger monstrosity than M. Night's Airbender (wasn't), I am still going to see the next one because my favorite browncoat is playing Hermes. Sorry. I digress.

  27. OH MY LORD YOU HAVE THE BEGINNING OF THE IMMORTALS SERIES. *starts jumping up and down* I LOVE that series from Tamora Pierce. Like, love, love, love it. I can't wait till you get around to reading it!

  28. What a cute onesie! Is it creepy that I kind of want an adult sized version? I liked Skinny and loved Scorpio Races, but Tamora Pierce always goes to the top of any pile of books! :-)

  29. THE SCORPIO RACES <3

    So glad you read it!

  30. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Let's not even talk about how behind in my reader I am.
    But seriously. That onesie? There are basically no words for that one.
    And I think you should give me the PJ box set out of the goodness of your heart ;]
