Miscellaneous is the tagline to store random posts that don’t really belong elsewhere. They may involve tags, awards, challenges, and other book blogging nonsense.
What’s Miscellaneous Today?
Fall 2015 Book Haul —
Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Others
This would have been a prime opportunity to create some spine poetry for my recent haul…but I decided to list them in order of when these were hauled.
Fall Miscellaneous Acquisitions
These are random acquisitions that were obtained through Oct-December and aren’t part of my Book Outlet hauls below.
Truthwitch belongs to Amanda @ Brains, Books, Brawn who is letting me borrow it (so I’m taking this picture to pretend I do own it). Glass Sword was won from Brittany @ Book Rambles giveaway. Patty @ BookishWanderLovee gave me her copy of Rush because she didn’t see herself reading it anytime soon (I don’t know when I’ll get to it either but her TBR is 100x bigger than mine). The Fixer was the book I received from Toronto Bookmas 2015 event (I forgot who gifted it).
The Scorpion Races – Maggie Stiefvater (YA, Fantasy, Romance, Mythology)
Truthwitch – Susan Dennard (YA, High Fantasy, Magic, Watches)

I still need to upload my picture for the Book Outlet Bear contest thing with…yes, the bear. I’m unsure what to do because I’m so uncreative so I might just go with this compilation picture. Who knooooooows.
