Book Buying Ban: week #8

Hello, folks!
Hope you're all enjoying your weekend!
I certainly am.

Last week I fell madly in love with Modern Family
which is really really funny and cleverTV show, so I've been watching it for a much needed bout of escapism.

Here's what I've read: 

Second Grave on The Left was amazing and The Knowledge of Good and Evil was one of those religious thrillers which I always find fascinating. These are my highlights of the week.


Unfortunately, this one is a classic of paranormal romance where the author felt the need to tick all the boxes. Super possessive, manipulating, jerky, angry alpha male; animalistic rage, mine, mine, mine and zero sparks between him and the main heroine. Yawn and DNF after a few chapters.

Total left:
62 books (6 for review)

This came as a gorgeous hardcover from fabulous Heather @ Books Stack On Deck. Thank you so much!

At last, is anyone excited after watching these trailers?
I know I am!
What got me that it shows an open polygamy and is like one of those movies like Revolver or Lucky Number Slevin. Everything is not what it seems.

I don't expect any plot, but it's going to be steampunkish and fun! :D

This just looks insane, and I HAVE to watch it!

P.S. Don't forget that there are two international giveaway that I'm currently running. You can win Breathe by Sarah Crossan or Break Out by Nina Croft.

I know! That's why I want to watch it! :)

Kat said...

Ohhhhhh creepy trailers - love them!

you are doing so well on your book buying ban ;-D

kara-karina@Nocturnal Book Reviews said...

Thanks, Kat! It's torture though, that's why I want to get it done as soon as humanly possible! :)))

Yiota said...

Modern Family is epic! Totally loving it <3
And i'll probably watching the Iron Fist movie..not sure about the others :p

kara-karina@Nocturnal Book Reviews said...

Gloria is my favorite, Yiota! She is so funny :)
I understand about the rest of the movies, they are a bit too serious, while the man with the iron Fist is more fun, b-movie type. Did you watch Kungfu Hustle? it's very funny and crazy in similar way.

Melliane said...

I love darynda Jones! I didn't know the book you won. Happy reading!

kara-karina@Nocturnal Book Reviews said...

I think I'm behind you on Darynda's books, D.! Can't wait to read more - she is amazing!

Ellie said...

I can't decide if I'm jealous of your tiny TBR number... *glances around at teetering piles*

kara-karina@Nocturnal Book Reviews said...

Don't be, Ellie! I'm only doing it because my OCD is pissed off that I keep buying books and not reading them for a year because of review piles. I can't cope with that hence radical measures :)

Hannah @ Dragons and Whimsy said...

Still need to get to The Assassins' Curse and Iron Duke. HOW DO YOU READ SO MUCH IN A WEEK? :<

kara-karina@Nocturnal Book Reviews said...

I don't know, Han! Maybe I force feed myself, so the ban can be finally over? :)))

Blodeuedd said...

Wow that last one is freaky! :D

Kimberly @ Caffeinated Reviewer said...

ooh i hope you like the Darydra Jones book!

Unknown said...

:/ I still need to read Legacy of Tril...among others in my pile. Sigh. Savages looks insane. I don't think I can watch that.

Have a great week, hun.

I really need to read some Meljean Brook and Darynda Jones. I keep hearing such good things. I'm not a huge UF girl, but I'll admit that I haven't truly given the genre a chance, so that is up next on my list of things to do in 2013. Challenge maybe? I dunno.

Petra said...

How can you manage to be on a book buying ban for so long? It's admirable! :)

Melissa (My World...in words and pages) said...

Oh I like the Heart of Steel cover there. And The man with Iron Fists looks awesome! Thanks for sharing it.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
