Recently acquired


I bought The Hunger Games in London and I finished it really, really quickly on the plane home. I ordered the second two books and devoured them. I can't remember the last time a book has sucked me in so much; I wasn't even reading properly, I was skimming because I wanted to know what was going to happen next. If you haven't read them yet, have a go! I don't think they're particularly well written, but the story is fantastic. I'm going to see the movie tomorrow, and I'm seriously excited for it (I love watching adaptations of books I've read). The sunnies I bought on a whim from ASOS, because my other pair broke. I usually go for oversized ones but these are seriously big, they almost look like novelty glasses. Oh well, I only wear sunglasses at the beach.

Here's the new dress that was in my last post. I bought it from Dangerfield, which is probably my favourite store (I can only bring myself to get things from the sale section, though). I think the cut is a bit odd but I love the print and the skirt bit is perfect.

Writing this post is cutting into my sleeping time, so I'll see you later!

  5. The print is so cute! Full price Dangerfield is expensive! Smart girl, going for the sale section ;), that's what I do too. I love their winter coats.

    I will have to go read these Hunger Game books, I am afraid I am starting to get too old to get away with reading YA fiction...

  8. Ahahaha, I guess good morning to you then. :) I love (!!!) the dress, the pattern is so cute!! And I'm still sceptical about the hunger games, I don't know... maybe I should read them. And the sunglasses don't look that big from the picture (which is also always on the ASOS website... I just can't seem to guess the size of those items!!) but they look lovely!

  11. I'm still dithering over buying into The Hunger Games, I don't 'get' the story but I guess that'd come in time if I started reading them. Waaa, I can't decide! Your dress is super cute as well, Jane (:

  14. Dangerfield is the best! But wayyy too expensive :( it makes me sad because I want to buy EVERYTHING they have. I just ordered the Hunger Games trilogy boxset, can't wait to get into it! I am a bit torn as to whether I should just see the movie and then read the books, or read the books and just watch the movie later when it's out on DVD! Perhaps I will just have to read them very very quickly :)

  24. Yep, it's the story rather than the writing that pull you in! But the story is amazing enough! :) I love this version of the books, I own the ugly British versions but these are gorgeous!

    Hope you've had a great weekend!
