Tuney Tuesday: Alone by Kelly Clarkson


  1. You are too funny!
    You remind me so much of my oldest niece, she's 11, she's not chinese but she looks chinese and her name is like your but spelled with an A instead of an E at the end.
    Oh and by the way, the Gena Showalter book is YA. She does have plenty of steamy adult books but that's a YA series.
    I know my name is hard, seriously I don't know what my mom was thinking. But its pronounced Nah-ray-duh.
    Glad your book shelf is growing!

  2. Silly girl. Awesome haul.

    Happy readings!

  3. You made me giggle so freaking hard. I think my mom is scared I'm on crack or something.

    A couple of things:
    -The Gena Showalter book is YA
    -You say awkward turtle, but my friends say awkward panda.
    -You are lucky to have such amazing friends
    -I'm sending you an e-mail
    -Also your video cracked me up so bad. I loved it when you stroked your blankie!

  4. Great haul. I love seeing people's vlogs and seeing the book up close and personal. Great haul.

    Come visit me too.


  5. Infinite Days is a brilliant book, I hope you enjoy!

    Letterbox Love!

  6. Awesome haul Eileen. I love your vlogs, your so cute :) Hope you enjoy all your books. Happy Reading.

  7. lol! I've run out of bookshelf room also. I stack my books all over the place now and create makeshift bookends.(Like using teddy bears and candles, etc.) Oh and your vlogs are getting more and more entertaining. Enjoy all your loot!

  8. Great selection of books! I'd be interested to see how the book of Snow White and the Huntsman compares to the movie. Yay for gift cards :) I love 'em. People get weird about giving giftcards sometimes, but I'm like.. that's giving me the gift of shopping! haha :D

    Thanks for stopping by!

    Yay, for all the goodies you got this week, Eileen ! :)
    Congrats on being in the Top 10 in your Chinese class. ;) That's awesome especially since you say that you suck at it. You would be pretty outstanding if you were really good at Chinese . :P

    Vivian @ Vivaciously, Vivian

  42. Awesome Haul! I have Once a Witch but I haven't read it yet. I think it will be great. I've also seen the Snow White movie, so if the book is anything like that then I'm sure it will be good. Hopefully a little more dialogue though :) Great win too! Bloodlines is supposed to be awesome. I have it on my shelf, waiting for me. Happy Reading!

    Krista @ Nawanda Files

  43. I saw the Snow White movie on Friday and loved it (even hubby did :)!
    I have Once a Witch, but haven't read it. I really enjoyed Infinite Days, but the sequel has taken forever to get published :(

    Thanks for stopping by!

  44. I was not expecting to see a book haul video, watching them always make me want to go to a on a book spree! Except for Anne Rice books, I haven't read much vampire books either. I'm really curious about Once a Witch, I like reading books about magic and witches. Great haul! Btw, I feel the same about my blanket, I can't go anywhere without it. :)

    Isa @ Chasing Quills

  45. Great haul! I've read Unraveled and Once a Witch and I liked them both! :) Hope you have fun reading this summer!

    Chapter by Chapter

  47. I hope you have a great reading week!! Great books!!!

  48. I really liked Infinite days. Once a Witch sounds good too. I have been wanting to read Gena Showalters Intertwined series for a while, it sounds awesome. Great books, and gift cards this week. can't go wrong with ice cream and movies. :)

  49. Haha very cute video! I really enjoyed Infinite Days but the sequel keeps getting pushed back further and further I think its supposed to come out in 2013 now?

    "Unwind" sounds like an interesting, yet creepy concept.

    Great vlog.

    PS - Nice cameo by your Gramps.

  60. That's some haul! I watched Snow White and the Huntsman in the cinema, but I haven't read it. I wonder if the film is different. Hmm.

    Thanks for stopping by my STS & happy reading!

  61. You got some great books, but I am really jealous of the Cold Stone GC!

  62. Great haul chicky! Once A Witch I have had for ages I have to read that one soon! haha. And Unwind is terrible. I think you should burn it, then buy another copy to burn it again.

  63. I'm not able to watch your vlog from this computer, but I do love your book haul! While He Was Away is definitely on my Wish List, as is Once A Witch. I hope they're as good as they sound :-)

    Enjoy all your lovelies! Happy reading!

    My book haul

  64. Super great haul! I'm jealous of Snow White and the Huntsman! I'm curious to see how it differs from the movie. I enjoyed the movie but felt like some things didn't get wrapped up very well.

    Enjoy your books and thanks for stopping by booknook

  65. Your grandfather was funny! Enjoy your books and thanks for stopping by my blog! Try the vampire books... there is no such thing as vampires being overdone! I haven't read several of the ones you got yet, either...
