I really tried to wait longer before buying more books, I really did. I waited through three blog tours, where I read the books and reviewed them. I was a good book blogger, so I rewarded myself. To justify my spending I used Bookcloseout for the biggest order. It's kind of like shopping at Sam's Club or Cosco; they don't always have the same thing, but you can find surprises if you look hard enough. The best deals are on trade paperbacks and hardcovers, and I found some cool books this time. I bought:
Birth of the Pack By Petru Popescu
A YA novel about Weregirls battling evil.
The Visitant by Kathleen O'Neal Gear and W. Michael Gear
Romantic Times said it was "a wonderful journey of learning and adventure".
Evernight by Claudia Gray
Paranormal YA Novel that I've heard good things about.
Love is Hell, YA Anthology
Melissa Marrr, Scott westerfeld and more
Vampirates, Demons of the Ocean by Justin Somper
How could I resist the title? It's a YA title.
Daughter of the Sea by Berlie Doherty
"She was a gift from the sea, but now the ocean wants her back..."
The DarkAngel, Book One by Meredith Ann Pierce
tag line: Can Aeriel Save the Vampyre's Soul?
Woo-hooo on these next two!
Another One Bites the Dust
Biting the Bullet
by Jennifer Rardin
I read book one, Once Bitten, Twice Shy and couldn't wait to read the next books in the series!
Last, but not least, for my almost ten year old I bought Clues for Real Life, The Classic Wit & Wisdom of Nancy Drew in hardcover. She is going to love it!
I also received a small Amazon book order this weekend. I now have:
Pleasure Unbound, Demonica Book 1, by Larissa Ione
City of Souls, Sign of the Zodiac, Book 4, by Vicki Pettersson
Madhouse, Cal Leandros series, by Rob Thurman
All three of these are series I've been reading, or as with Pleasure Unbound, heard so much about it I HAD to start reading it!
For my daughter I bought My Sister the Vampire #2, Fangtastic. We read the first one out loud (she's almost ten and reads to me.) and we are reading this one out loud as well. We started the same day it came in the mail. She LOVES these books.
