Oh, yeah, one more teeny thing I forgot to mention: I bought some books, then I was gifted some books, then I bought some more, won some more, and then Christmas happened. I see that face. Take your amused eyeballs somewhere else. WHO ARE YOU TO JUDGE ME? (More)
Heart's Blood by Juliet Marillier | Bought
This little thing landed in the good graces of Keertana @ Ivy's Book Bindings. She doesn't know this yet but I trust her with my sanity. And what's left in the reserves is so, so precious.
Stolen by Lucy Christopher | Bought
If there's one thing I know - and I don't know much - when Sam @ Realm of Fiction says a book made her cry, shizz is getting serious. And also I just love the pants off of Leanne @ The Reclusive Reader's review. Hence, the buying unwisely since I have a super sensitive corazón (that's spanish for the sensitive place in your chest), people.
The Hallowed Ones by Laura Bickle | Bought
Do you know anyone who HASN'T read this book? And said it wasn't awesome? I sure don't.
The Last Knight by Hilari Bell | Bought
Reluctant brothers-in-arms? Knighthood? Escape of the wench may cause the demise of their necks and reputations? YES PLEASE! One of my fave bloggers, Small @ Small Review, made me heart the idea of this.
Dairy Queen by Catherine Gilbert Murdock | Bought
There are a few reasons I want to read this book. First, because I'd like to know if the ridiculous title was a happy accident or actually has some relevance to the book. Second, it sounds ADORBS, friends. Also, THREE DOLLARS.
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas | Bought
MY FAVORITE BOOK. Or one of them.
Morganville Vol. 2 + 4 by Rachel Caine | Bought
'Tis a far better thing to actually own all of Morganville.
Ghost Town by Rachel Caine | Gifted
Which my mom accepts. It's the only way to keep me on the straight and narrow. Who knows what would become of me with the sudden nonexistence of Morganville in my life? She wants no part in my
Sapphire Blue by Kerstin Gier | Gifted
See: above second to last line. This will also explain why she rushed to get this into my twitching hands.
Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter | Won
You don't even want to KNOW how many times I entered the giveaways for this. It's a sad, sad reality and my family and I would appreciate some privacy during this dreadful time.
Venom by Fiona Paul + Crewel by Gennifer Albin | Won
I unexpectedly won this awesome giveaway hosted by Montana @ The Book Belles. I can't wait to start Venom and I'm currently petting Crewel as it sits in my lap.
Macregor series #5-10 by Nora Roberts | Bought
AT LONG LAST. I'VE FOUND THEM. Well, all but one. Dang it. The prequel has elluded me for the LAST TIME. I will NOT stand for this.
Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta | Library Borrow
Misty @ The Book Rat somehow convinced me I have not lived until I read this book. Yet again, my TBR has grown. Dang it. I'm still in the middle of FROI, then we'll see...
The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness | Library Borrow
When do you NOT hear about the Chaos Walking trilogy? I think it's about time.
Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry | Gifted by Harlequin Teen Panel
I LOVE THIS BOOK LIKE CRAY. Nuff said, my friends.
Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols | Gift from Christmas
I don't think I've ever loved a Jennifer Echols book the way I love this one. If you haven't met Office After, how can you be sure you've ever properly felt tingles for a fictional male?
The Book of Atrix Wolfe by Patricia A. McKillip | Gift from Christmas
YO, read Angie @ Angieville's review of THIS BOOK. Tell me you don't want to own it RIGHT NOW. What was I supposed to do other than include this in my Christmas wishlist?
Legend by Marie Lu | Gift from Christmas
Probably the saddest book I've ever not read, according to my sources.
Shadowfell by Juliet Marillier | Gift from Christmas
You guys HAVE to know I lo-lo-loooove this book.
Shine by Jeri Smith-Ready | Gift from Christmas
The sexy rumored to be in this book happens to be, sad about me, the thing I'm most anticipating because, HULLO, HAVE YOU MET ZACH? The ONLY hot one in the kilt?
Outpost by Ann Aguirre | Gift from Christmas
Why, Macmillan? Why were you so cruel to me?
Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes | Gift from Christmas
I was worried about this, EVEN THOUGH I'VE WANTED IT SO BAD, until a god-send in the form of a review at Sam's blog turned up. 'TIS MY LUCKY DAY.
ALL RIGHT, ALL RIGHT. I am finished speaking now. Gosh, I need a glass of water. Immediate assistance required with this task. Also, if you haven't already checked them out, I have reviews up for Decked With Holly by Marni Bates, The Farm by Emily McKay (and giveaway), and Blood Prophecy by Alyxandra Harvey. Do a kind, gentle soul a favor today, then come read and comment on my posts if you please.
