It all started last week. I was minding my own business, coming down for the weekly home visit, when I notice on my desk, a surprise package from Allen & Unwin. 'What is this?' I asked myself. So, of course, I tear it open. And what befalls my eyes? An ARC of We Were Liars.
Moving on. This week, I came home a day early and more packages are there. More. One from Dotti (my one and only true clothing store love) and Random House.
These are the two gorgeous pieces I bought. This playsuit is so nice. It's good for any occasion (and any weather). So well-made. I'm just very happy, ok?
The blazer I'm pretty in love with too, though. I've been after one for a while and this one checks all the marks. So well-fitted. The pockets kind of aren't real (which makes me hella sad) but I just am in love. It's gr8. Very happy.
This is the ridiculously large thing I got from Random House. In case you aren't clued in (or just don't follow Random House/Penguin on Twitter), recently Random House and Penguin recently hosted their #NBBF14 (or, the National Book Blogger's Forum 2014). I didn't go, but Random House graciously hosted a giveaway. And somehow I won. I know. Colour me surprised too. What was inside the bag, you ask? Well, here, let me show you.
Some books I'm pretty keen on reading.
Look at how gorgeous that edition of Looking For Alibrandi is! I'd been eyeing it at work for the longest time, now I have it in my hot little hands.
Thank you so much Random House for hosting (what seemed like) a great day and hosting the giveaway on Twitter. Much appreciated.
Now, finally. The last book. So, I had this lecture. And in the lecture, my lecturer was like 'If you find the content of this presentation fascinating, here is book you should read.' I just so happened to find the lecture fascinating, and automatically put the book on hold at the library. Behold
The Secret Life of Pronouns. I know, it probably wasn't what you were expecting. But guys, it just sounds so fascinating. It's a blend of psychology and linguistics and it's all about how words we never thought of as important, are actually key in learning about a person. I'm just crazy excited to read this.
So, that's it. What about you guys? Have you picked up any crazy bargains recently? It is the EOFYS so I'm pretty sure there's a lot of bargains going round (clicks for you if you get that reference)
