I penny pinched for seemly forever to get this house, so I splurged a little and bought myself some new books as a house warming present. I still don’t have much time for reading but that should be changing in the next week or two, I may as well have a mighty selection to choose from. Of course, after a weekend of doing things, I’m kind of regretting my splurge, but I cannot undo the past.
On the Kindle:
I’m about to finally finish Kings of the Wyld and then I’ll be picking up Red Sister as it’s my Goodreads group’s Book of the Month. Super excited to start it though because I love Mark Lawrence.
I have been on a strict book buying diet since we’re saving for a house. It can be incredibly frustrating at times but the truth is that I always have roughly 100 books, either physical editions or ebooks, waiting to be read in my house. (Though I’m sure many book wyrms can agree, you always want to read the books you don’t have.) I’ve only been buying ebooks on sale for $0.99 to $1.99 or physical used books for $0.50 at my library. I won’t lie, I’m pretty proud of my self control.
My husband shot that all to shit though when he handed me money and demanded I buy myself books for Valentine’s Day. So while he spent most of Valentine’s Day evening raiding in World of Warcraft, I spent it blissfully selecting books I’ve been wanting for a long time, but never to seem to be in stock at my local B&N.
So sometime between this coming Monday and Friday, I should be receiving the following 5 books:
- Queen of the Darkness by Anne Bishop
- Traitor’s Blade by Sebastien de Castell
- The Desert Spear by Peter V. Brett
- Tempting Danger by Eileen Weeks
- Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier
In the mean time, I’m reading short novels to fill the time until my new books arrives. Because as soon as they arrive, I’m diving in.
