Not gonna happen.
Paperbacks I bought this week
A Witch in Winter by Ruth Warburton
Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta
OK, so at least I managed to curb my 'print edition' book buys. I saw 'A Witch in Winter' in a bookstore and thought it looked pretty so I bought it (yes, I am that much of a cover whore). And 'Finnikin of the Rock' was actually mentioned to me by a reader (thank you, Maria!) who recommended Marchetta's contemporary read to me 'Jellicoe Road'. Still haven't read that one either but I trust that it's going to be an awesome read, as is Finnikin. Sounds great.
Kindle Books bought recently
Tomorrow Land by Mari Mancusi
(this book sounds amazing and check out that cover. It rocks!)
Nocturnal by Chelsea M. Cameron
(Chelsea is a fellow indie writer and she's just awesome. Nocturnal is her debut novel and sounds brilliant. Plus, how gorgeous is that cover?)
Darkness Falls by Jessica Sorensen
(Aah, I'm so excited about this book. Click on the link and check out that blurb! This is a new series from bestselling indie author Jessica Sorensen. I have Jessica's Fallen Stars series on my kindle too and I can't wait to get started on both of these)
Tsunami Blue by Gayle Ann Williams
(the premise of this one just sounds so refreshing and kind of kickass. I admit to picking up this book because back in the first babysteps of Blood Past (WOA #2) I used the same stock image of the girl on the cover so this caught my eye :-p)
Geek Girl by Cindy C. Bennett
(I came across this one on Facebook and it's got great reviews. Sounds like my kind of contemporary)
Boyfriend from Hell by E. Van Lowe
(The cover of book two in this series caught my eye in the kindle store so I thought I'd give the series a go. Sounds really cool!)
Awakening by Karice Bolton
(I saw this on my cover artist Phatpuppy Art's website and was happily surprised to discover it was free on kindle - I think it still is.)
Almost by Anne Eliot
(I can't wait to read this contemporary book. I came across it on Facebook and the reviews for it are amazing.)
Going Under by Georgia Cates
(Another contemporary that sounds so much fun and has awesome reviews)
Books I've preordered this week
Unraveling by Elizabeth Norris
(So far I love everything about this novel. Love the cover. Love the premise. Love the anticipation :-p)
The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa
(My most anticipated read of 2012! No joke! I am desperate to get my hands on this book. The premise sounds like the best thing since sliced bread [where did that saying come from? Surely better things have been 'invented' a goodly while back than slice bread. Say... toilets. Yeah, gross, but true] and as a lover of all things Kagawa [Fey! Dear gods, those awesome Fey!!], I have a feeling this might be one of my favourite reads EVER. Fingers crossed).
Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins
(I was interested when I saw this book but not really antsy for it. The cover didn't seem to match the blurb and I was worried that it wouldn't deliver what it said on the tin. However, just read an amazing review of it on one of my favourite blogs, Fiktshun, so I preordered it and now I can't wait to read it!).
I wonder if you guys did any better than me and actually managed to rein in the spending on the book pile this month.
I have a problem, right?
I don't want the cure! Keep it. :-p
