  1. OMG! You have a baby! She's beautiful! You got married! Congratualations! That's a lot of exclaimation points!

    And, you look gorgeous, but my answer in these situations is always cut the hair. New looks are fun!

  2. Arrhh Baby Lily is so cute!
    I got The Golden Lily last week and loved it; glad you enjoyed it too. I also have Grave Mercy which I want to read; heard really good things. I'm so jealous that you have Prodigy. I really want to read it! I want to read Girl of Fire and Thorns too! I can't give any advice on hair; sorry, I'm the worst person to ask.

  3. Awwww, your daughter is sooo adorable!! I love the smiles!!! I'm constantly growing my hair and cutting it... it makes me feel like a new person every time I cut it. Though it looks beautiful long, I'd say to go for it. :) And great books this week - I hope you enjoy! :)

  21. What a happy baby :). She is so cute.
    When I had my first I was 26 and had very long hair. I cut mine to chin length when he was 6 months old. The longest I've grown it since is 3 inches down my back. People told me cutting it would make things easier - don't believe them. Long hair can air dry and be pulled back in a moments notice. Shorter hair has to be styled. I'd stick to the longer hair while still in your 20's :).

    1. Mine is actually too long and annoying, I always pull my hair because its stuck betwen my back and my chair and have to pull em out etc. I'll make sure I can still tie them!

      Delete
  22. I am so jealous of Prodigy by Marie Lu! I requested an ARC, but I wonder if I'll actually get it, being right after BEA and all. But I'm crossing my fingers! You got a ton of great books and it's so convenient that you have a paperback of Grave Mercy and your friend has a hardcover! :)

  23. Oh, Lily is just so beautiful! And I can't believe you're making a reader out of her already! :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh Lily is uber-cute, and a bit bigger each time I see her. You have such beautiful hair, it being longer is actually easier that it being shorter with a little one. Wonderful books, I'm going to have to check out some of those.

  26. Wow, you got some great books this week! And your daughter is too cute. Thanks for sharing the video with us! As for your hair, my hair was about your length and I did go ahead and cut some of it off. It made it a lot lighter, and easier to pull back. I took about three inches off, which put it below my shoulders. So I say go for it! Less weight for the summer and all. :)

  29. I think your long hair is beautiful, but I say cut it and see how you like it. It might be great and if not, it will always grow back. :D Lily is beautiful and it looks like you're having a lot of fun being a mom.

  35. Great books this week! And Lily looks like such a happy baby. Too cute!

    Looking forward to seeing your new haircut! I cut mine off periodically as long hair gets too hot in the summer, and if you don't like it short you can always let it grow again. Good luck!

  38. Those are GREAT books on your shelves this week, Tynga :-) I really want to read Girl of Fire and Thorns, Prodigy, and The Golden Lily. Richelle Mead will actually be here soon for a book signing so maybe I'll snag The Golden Lily then.

    Hope you enjoy ALL of your lovelies :-)

  40. I hope you're going to enjoy all your reads, but especially Grace Mercy. I loved it, couldn't put it down although it wasn't all that big a story or anything.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Ah, you are the first one I've seen with Echoes & Embers! I enjoyed book one, so I'll probably read book two---second book looks way longer than book one!

    Such a sweet baby! Thanks for sharing your videos of her! :D

    Here's my new goodies!

  42. Oh It's always so nice to see Lily-Ann, she is so cute! I haven't read any of your book yet but some sound very interesting! I'm still a little late in the Sherrilyn Kenyon series but I can't wait the Acheron book. Otherwise for your hair, I have to say they're wonderful and if I were you, I think I would just cut a little but not a lot, because it's really nice.

    here is mine

    1. Thanks Melliane! I actually only read the first book in sherrilyn's series lol but I bought all the books in between :)

  43. Lily Ann is adorable, I always wondered when my son started making his first ga-ga sounds "What are you trying to tell me so hard?" Too cute :)

    I had to cut my hair because it was falling out heavily, guess it was the hormones. Yours looks really nice and healthy, maybe just shorten it a tiny bit?

    Enjoy all your new books!

  44. Hey Tynga! Great haul, hope you'll enjoy them! Lily is too adorable :-D
    And re: the existential question: Cut, Cuz, Cut! :-D Lol, I'm quite brave when it comes to hair since it grows back quite fast, so whenever I feel like a change I have it cut. Right now I have had my hair cut like this: http://www.feelny.net/photo/Katie-Holmes-hair83790.jpg and really enjoy it, especially for the hot summer weather. It's a great way not to get bored with how you look, so I urge you to do it :-)

  46. She's so adorable:) And great books this week! I really want to read Grave Mercy...but haven't bothered picking it up s my TBR is already scary!

    PS...I'd say cut it...but start with less than you are thinking to make sure you like it...you can always get more cut later but you can't grow it back that quickly!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I am not aware of half of the books you got but I so want to read The Blessed.

    I love short hair so I am definitely going to say, cut that mane into a bob or something!

    You have a beautiful baby! Congrats =D

  51. So many of those books are on my wish-list ! :D
    That ABC book for Lily-Ann is just too adorable. I used to have them too when I was little and my mom still keeps them. :) It's going to be a while until she can use it though ! :P
    I'm so glad you loved Grave Mercy. It's one of my favorite reads of this year !
    I bought my copy of Golden Lily this week too and you're right, it was much better than Bloodlines. Bloodlines was also a slight disappointment for me so I'm glad GL was better.

    A haircut below your shoulders will look good on you although the long hair suits you as well. :)

    Lily Ann is an adorable little thing. <3
    She's growing up really fast ! :)

  52. The ABC book is so cute! So jealous of the Golden Lily!
    Lily-Ann is so beautiful!

    And I say go ahead and cut your hair, I think it will look great :)

  53. Great haul there.

    On the cut or not to cut debate... I'm going to have to do the typical male response and say, "Whatever makes you happy." XD

    Enjoy!!!

  54. Tynga! Cut your hair... you will feel a weight off of your shoulders, plus if you end up not liking it so much, it will grow back. :)

    Lilly is so pretty. Great video of her this week.

  55. I have been reading summaries of your books on Goodreads. Looks like you got some great ones this week. I have added a few to my list. Grave Mercy, Girl of Fire and Thorns and The Iron Thorns. Hope you enjoy all of them.
