So, to revive an old habit – it is Sunday, what’s in your mailbox time. Of course, I am only reviving it because I just purchased two new books and wanted to brag about them.
Below are the books I’m hoping to get in July. It will be a busy month both physically and financially so I may not get them all…course I may get them all plus more too. Yes! I’m a bookaholic! I guess we all collect something in some form or another – tools, penguins, beenie babies, knick knacks, jewelry, etc. I collect books.
So without further adieu:
🙂 The list has gotten longer since I started writing this. LOL
I think this would be a cooler mailbox if the dragon was actually in color. 🙂
So here it is Sunday and time to share how naughty you were this week as far as book splurging went. I don’t want to know how naughty you were in other areas…don’t want to lose my innocents. LOL.
I haven’t been all that bad because several of the titles I bought were under $4. This month’s selections are:
I pre-ordered the following book which won’t be out until July:
And received the following after pre-ordering it months ago:
So I will have a lot to read this month!! What found it’s way into your mailbox?
I have decided to take a break from ghosts and move on to something different. Therefore, the following book is up on the docket next. It was recommended to me by Virginia over at Adventures in Writing (link under blogroll).
On the night their mother drowns, sisters Marnie and Diana Maitland discover there is more than one kind of death. There is the death of innocence, of love, and of hope. Each sister harbors a secret about that night-secrets that will erode their lives as they grow into adulthood.
After ten years of silence between the sisters, Marnie is called back to the South Carolina Lowcountry by Diana’s ex-husband, Quinn. His young son has returned from a sailing trip with his emotionally unstable mother, and he is refusing to speak. In order to help the traumatized boy, Marnie must reopen old wounds and bring the darkest memories of their past to the surface. And she must confront Diana, before they all go under.
Virginia is one I have long used for adding to my list of books to read. She recommended the Ladybug series, the Woman in Black, and many others over the years. Thus I have high expectations for this book – who knows, maybe it will be another one I have to buy so I can share with the gals at work again. 🙂
Happy reading everyone!!
Well, shall we see what wonderful thriller I’ve been working on lately? I’m afriad it isn’t much of a surprise because I already mentioned that I started it but put it aside.
I am also reading another book that I haven’t gotten to far on yet – however, so far it has grabbed my attention. The story is based on a house somewhere in upstate New York that has been empty for decades because it is haunted. Of course, the author admits he only stayed two minutes in the house because he said it only took that long for him to realize the house didn’t want him there. Now, whether this is true or not (the author won’t disclose the location of the house for us to see ourselves) it has effectively added an air of mystery to the book. Could such a house really exist? Doubtful but never say never. 🙂
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine. This allows people to showcase the books they cannot wait to get their hands on!
It is hard to say I’m waiting on books when I literally have hundreds to read now thanks to a friend of mine.
However, there are a couple by my favorite authors that I’ve been keeping my eye out for:
The God Project is a novella, the rest are full-length books. 🙂
Wow, I did this post and WordPress asked me to take a survey. The survey question was “How likely are you to recommend WordPress to a friend?” and I answered with an 8. Hit enter and it deleted my entire post – wish I could take it over because I’d give it a 2 now. It really pisses me off when it does this shit – seriously.
Even said it was autosaving it but it didn’t. I swear if I didn’t have so much invested in WordPress, I’d find a different blogging provider. Really, really irritates me.
So anyway, today is Monday and while I’m not reading anything now I am contemplating reading the Jurassic Park books again. I enjoyed them and thought it might satisfy my monster craving.
