Well I finally have a book haul to blog about! Most of you don’t know this, but I was in a car accident during the last big snow storm we had here in New England, and I haven’t had my car for over two weeks. I am ‘supposed’ to get it back on Monday, but who knows. Bottom line, Insurance is picking up the tab on MOST of it, since it wasn’t my fault, but of course the repair shop found things that weren’t a cause for the accident and blah blah blah, it’s been a very stressful past few weeks. BUT. I went out today and bought these babies as a pick-me-up to myself. A lot of them were on my wishlist and have been for a while, so it was nice to finally have them.
The books I bought are the following, in no particular order:
Hush: An Irish Princess’ Tale by Donna Jo Napoli
I read The Smile by Donna Jo Napoli and it is absolutely one of my favorite books. I’m hoping I adore this one just as much.
The Treatment by Suzanne Young
FINALLY I HAVE THE SEQUEL TO THE PROGRAM. I loved The Program. Like, loved loved loved it. So I can finally read the next segment!! YAY!
Seed by Lisa Heathfield
The description of this really reminded me of Gated, which I really enjoyed. So I’m hoping I like it just as much!
Compulsion by Martina Boone
Not even going to exaggerate, I think it was the word ‘plantation’ that caught my eye. I’ve had an idea for a novel involving a plantation for years, so I am really curious to read this and see what it’s about. Once I got past the one word that caught my eye, the book description seemed really intriguing!
Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins
I have seen so many fantastic things about this book on Bookstagram, that I had to finally grab it and try it out for myself. And honestly, the cover is gorgeous. Who could blame me?
Landry Park by Bethany Hagen
The old cover caught my eye. But this revamped cover? Had to grab it.
Winger by Andrew Smith
When I visited my book conference in November of 2013, this book had yet to come out and was one of the Advanced Copies they were giving out in our book boxes. They limited the number to about 100 for over 1000 conference go-ers, so you can imagine we were all a little disappointed we didn’t receive it when all we heard about for a good chunk of one of the conference days was how fantastic it was. Basically, I’m still sad I didn’t get Andrew Smith’s autograph. But I’m super excited to finally have this book and check it out!
I currently own and have to read 300 books. The order in which I read/review them is completely random so….these may or may not take a while. Oops. I should probably stop buying more but there are worse things I could be spending my money on.
