As you probably already knew, I'm a total bookworm and have a serious obsession with books. I'm not kidding when I say I spend way too much time (and money) in Barnes and Noble. Since I just graduated and have some spending money, I decided to go on a little shopping spree yesterday. I think I've been to B&N about 3 (or 4) times this month, so I figured I would do a collective book haul in case you guys were curious about what I'll be reading over the next few weeks.
I have to be honest- I was really only looking to buy one book (It by Stephen King) when I went into B&N. And, as usual, I ended up buying a ton of other stuff. Oops.
Anyway, let's get started!

Barnes and Noble Haul!
It by Stephen King
Dark Places by Gillian Flynn
I just recently finished Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn (which was amazing, by the way!), so I decided to pick up this book. Her writing is absolutely fantastic- I literally can't put her books down. Gone Girl and Sharp Objects are some of my favorite books, and I'm assuming this will be just as wonderful.
The Rum Diary by Hunter S. Thompson
I've never read anything by Hunter S. Thompson, but he's another one of Corey's favorite authors. I've been meaning to read Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, but my Barnes and Noble never has it in stock... Ugh! Anyway, I'm really excited to read this.
Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut
For some reason or another, we never had to read anything by Vonnegut when I was in high school. Weird, right? I read Slaughterhouse-Five on vacation a few months ago and fell in love with Vonnegut's writing. Seriously, he has got to be one of the best authors I've ever read. Honestly, I don't know anything about Cat's Cradle, but I've heard it's pretty awesome.
The Woman in Black: Angel of Death by Martyn Waites
Animal Farm by George Orwell
The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger
The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star by Nikki Sixx
Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn
Bonus Random Mini Haul Thing!!

2015-2016 Planner by PlumPaperDesigns
Since I'm starting grad school in June, I decided to splurge a little bit on a new planner for this year. One of my favorite YouTubers, Leesha (xSparkage) bought a planner from PlumPaperDesigns on Etsy and was raving about it on her channel. Seriously, that shop has some of the coolest planner designs! I bought one of the student planners, but all of the planners are completely customizable. Definitely check them out if you're in need a new planner!
Also, the InkJoy pens are by far my favorite things ever! I'm left handed, so most pens smear (even though they say "no smear"); these don't, thank goodness. And they come in a ton of colors, which makes it really easy for me to color-coordinate my planer.
I hope you enjoyed this post! As always, thanks for reading and keeping up with my literary obsession :)
