FEBRUARY 2016 HAUL


I actually planned on restraining myself from buying tons of books this month—since I am busy with projects and tests; but my brain couldn't care less, I ended up buying a lot of them. I wanted to share them with you since It has been a while since I made a 'haul' type of post.

1 | MAGIC PHOTO CUBE - HMR
- I was totally sold when I first saw this up on shelves. It's a freaking magnetized cube that would rotate your photos in 360 degrees! But I noticed that buying this wasn't really practical haha :( But of course, I'll find a way to add this up somewhere in the house, I think my dad won't mind it.
- Buy it here: http://www.amazon.com/Magic-Photo-Cube-2022418-Magnetic/dp/B00F54Z6FA/ref=sr_1_cc_4?s=aps&ie=UTF8&qid=1456396062&sr=1-4-catcorr&keywords=magic+photo+cube

2 | BLACK LOAFERS - HMR
- I flipped when I see this on a surplus store. At first I was a little devastated seeing that one of the pair was the only on on the shelf... but I decided to knock around some shoes 'till I found the other one and the pair was my size! It looks brand new, it feels great, and I, myself; have been trying to find loafers for my checkered dress. Finally.

3 | TROPICAL PARADISE LIPSTICK IN SILKY PEACH - AVON
- I decided to try peach for a change. This one gives a sheer color, (truthfully, I'm not a big fan of the color pay-off) but It was a nice bargain! The packaging is really sturdy, and it looks oh so wonderful. This will probably be my go-to summer lip color.

4 | GRAY TOP - HUMAN
- We were buying gifts for loved ones when I came across this shirt. Haven't had anything like it, so I decided to buy one. I think that this will be perfect for summer time, too!

5 | DRACULA BY BRAM STOKER - BOOKAY UKAY
- My friends and I went to Maginhawa for the first time. It was nice seeing a street full of things to do. All you need is your trusty feet to explore most of the area. We went into Bookay Ukay, a place where you can buy, sell or trade books. I picked out this really nice looking cover of Dracula, to make my mind at ease whenever I'm struggling to find classics.

6 | LOOK WHO'S BACK BY TIMUR VERMES - FULLYBOOKED
- I saw LeeReader from Youtube review this one and I was instantly sold. I decided to pick this book up because I want something funny, and I also want to read a newer take on history. This is about Hitler coming back in 2011, managing to be a star known for his impressions as himself.

7 | THRONE OF GLASS BY SARAH J. MAAS - NBS
- Since I've read Assasin's Blade before, I know a couple of bits and pieces about the Throne of Glass series. Haven't started it yet because I'm still waiting for my friend. Throne of Glass follows a girl named Celaena in her adventures (and misadventures) in Endovier.

8 | LES MISÉRABLES BY VICTOR HUGO - NBS
- I was complete obsessed with this shortened version! (Even though it's shortened, I still madly enjoyed it even if some of my favorite parts were cut off) I'm planning on buying the Signet Classic / the Penguin Classic edition and read it once again.

9 | CLARIEL BY GARTH NIX
- I got nothing about this book. All I know is I came across this once before in a bookstore, hoping on buying it because it was a signed first edition. (Turns out it ended up back at me hahaha!) I learned more about the book when booksandquills did a review on this one and stated that this can be read even if I haven't read the rest of the series yet. It's a prequel so I decided to buy it for myself.

10 | J.R.R. TOLKIEN THE HOBBIT AND LOTR POCKET SIZED BOXED SET - FULLYBOOKED
- I searched far and wide for this boxed set because it was utterly mesmerizing. I remember wanting to read classics that time and I saw this for a really good price. Ordered it, and waited for almost 2 weeks... but now I finally got it, and read The Hobbit.

11 | THE WRATH AND THE DAWN BY RENÉE AHDIEH - FULLYBOOKED
- This has been the Bane of my existence for so long. I've been seeing this a lot before but when I finally have the money to buy one, I can't find it anywhere else. I was so thankful that my friend got one for me (S/O to you, Sheen!) because I've been frantically losing my head out for this. This is a re-telling of A Thousand and One Nights—something that I'm fascinated about since before.

12 | VISITATION STREET - IVY POCHODA - NBS
- Saw this on a bargain shelf. This is only 99 pesos. I repeat, 99 pesos for a hardbound book. I read the summary and I think this will be not that bad of a read.

That is all for my length-y post. I'm happy for myself for sticking up with a post every single week. It has been tough; but so far, its all right.

See you!
