This new book shop is bad for my bank balance! It's impossible to walk past and draws me in every time. I go shopping with my daughter to buy wool and come home with wool and books now.
It has been a very, very long time since my last Book-Haul, so I figured it is time.
I have decided to only list and show the books I have on my shelves, otherwise this list would be miles long lol
So here are most of the books I gotten over the last couple months in the mail:
Arcs I received were
Random books I bought, that are standalones or I already own part of the series
Next we have some books by Sarah J. Maas
I found the Left Behind series by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins in a second store for 3 bucks all together for books 1-7. I didn't know what they about but figured for 3 bucks I can't go wrong.
Next we have Cassandra Clare's books. I will get Lord of Shadows next time I get to the store....or I'm hoping anyway.
The last are Rick Riordan Books I meant to read the for a while now so I figured I might as well get them, plus my kids can also read them. My son actually read three of the Percy Jackson books.
That is about, I think for hard copies. I have tons and tons of e-copies yet but way to many to list.
The spring giveaway is also still going on and we will have a new summer one starting mid or end of June ;)
But for now I will add the spring giveaway again in case tou have not entered or want to enter again (some are daily entrees).
Hit up my local library systems quarterly sale today and had a much better than usual haul (including 5 books for MT, not shown here).
See that book second from the bottom? The Lost Book of Salem by Katherine Howe? Yeah, turns out I already own that one but under its original title The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane. I freaking HATE when publishers do that. grrr...
I'm looking forward to the rest though; all but the Pratchett are titles new to me.
My sister-in-law sent me a text yesterday asking me if I'd please do her a favour and stop at my local bookstore to buy a book for our MIL for Mother's day.
I don't have to tell y'all what happened, right?
Here's the funny part - that bottom book? Girl In Between? Yeah, I never laid eyes on the book before I got home and pulled it out of the bag. It's bad enough I have the self-control of an addict in a bookshop - now they have to add extras?
I was ranting and raving to MT about extra books as I flipped it over and compulsively started reading the back cover... and my ranting petered out and "Oh, hey, this looks like it could be good!"
MT almost laughed until he cried, and my indignation promptly lost all credibility.
It's not all decomp and deodorisers here at la casa de la rata muerta; I hit up my local FOTL semi-annual book sale yesterday and came away with a few possible gems.
(Three of the above actually came this week in the mail; 2 new, 1 used.)
Conan Doyle: Man Who Created Sherlock Holmes. I know nothing about this biography and can only hope it's enjoyable.
The Penguin Book Of Etiquette: The Complete Australian Guide To Modern Manners This one is likely going to tell me it's rude to post gross disgusting stories about dead animals in your walls, but better late than never.
The Book of Killowen I was sucked in by the story about a book. Of course. Seems to be a mid-series entry, so hopefully it'll work as a stand-alone.
The Library of Shadows I think I've heard about this one before - might have even looked at it in a bookshop, but again, it's about books so of course I bought it.
Blade Bound The last in the Chicagoland series. *sniffle*
Dangerous To Know The first one was excellent, I hope this one lives up to expectations.
The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes I had a suspicion I already had a copy, but just in case... (of course I did).
