My Poisonous Book Haul (75) ~ Vegas Valley Book Festival Edition!

This has now become my replacement for In My Mailbox (which was created by The Story Siren). Since that feature has made some changes, I decided that I needed to move on as well. My book haul feature has a name that's more catered to my blog's theme, but it's exactly the same. Basically, you create a post of the books you either received in the mail/e-mail, bought at a bookstore, or borrowed from the library.

So I tried to make a video of the books I got in my iPad as per usual, but it was too long to post to YouTube. I was way too tired to make another video, so I just took pictures instead. I seriously had the most amazing weekend. A lot of times I don't get to sit in on many panels, but with the help of my dad and my boyfriend saving my seat, I was able to catch a lot of them and really learned a lot. So a special thanks to the Vegas Valley Book Festival, the historic Fifth Street school, and Barnes & Noble for creating such a fantastic event. I was also surprised by the small amount of people that were there; there were a lot of fantastic authors there, and yet the signing lines were the smallest I'd ever seen them. But I definitely wasn't complaining.

What did you all get in your book haul? Let me know in the comments!


  1. That's a ton of books! Wanted to go to this one, but it didn't work out.

    1. Yeah it was a last-minute thing for me. Let me know if you end up going next year :)

  2. Yeah this looks insane. I wish I could have gone. Maybe next year we can make a weekend trip with the girls and do it.

    1. YES PLEASE!!! I expected this event to be packed, but there really weren't that many people there.


I always appreciate comments and cherish every one of them. THIS IS AN AWARD-FREE ZONE. I don't have the time to fulfill the requirements for the awards, but thank you so much for thinking of me. I just ask for no vulgarity, and if you have any issues with my reviews or writing style, please e-mail me instead of commenting. Now, vent to your heart's content!
