So this week I caved & I bought a book!! I was doing so well & with Christmas coming up I've been trying not to buy but I needed this book!! I loved Hunting Lila and I need to know what happens next so I bought Losing Lila by Sarah Alderson. I just love Sarah's writing style & I can't wait to get stuck in. This week I also got a galley which was Wicked Kiss by Michelle Rowen. Now me being me didn't realise this is book two!!!!! How stupid!!??!! I just didn't see anything to say it was a second book so now I must buy the first!
Oh dear. Bad Sally. What started off as a fairly sensible week descended into consumer chaos when I hit the streets to go Xmas shopping yesterday. In my defence I did get two books which were fairly battered and one of these books was leant to me by one of my reading buddies. Plus there was a buy two get one free so I actually got my hands on nine, yes nine books for the princely sum of about £25 so that's not all bad right? So anyhoo, what did I get?
The first three books I got this week were The Dark Divine by Bree Despain, Silverhorse by Lene Kaaberbal which intrigues me and I'm also saying farewell to another fantastic series this week with the arrival of Reached by Ally Condie. I'm reading the last few chapters of Crossed again at the moment and it's all flooding back. I can't wait to find out what happens to Ky and Cassie next!
Checkmate by Malorie Blackman was one of the books that I nabbed a slightly damaged copy of at a greatly reduced price so much like Bungle I found myself having to get my hands on the books that preceded it. So I ran to the slightly more expensive section and got my hands on Noughts & Crosses and Knife Edge. I've heard some really good things about this series so I can't wait to get stuck in!
Last week I got my hands on a copy of The Stone Demon by Karen Mahoney and in a situation not dissimilar (Indeed, some might say it's identical) to the one above I found myself in a position where I needed to acquire the first two books of the series. So I got my hands of a copy of The Iron Witch and The Wood Queen too! I also got my hands on a copy of Fated by Sarah Alderson. Like Bungle I'm a big fan of the way the Sarah Alderson writes so I'm looking forward to snuggling away over Xmas and getting stuck into this one!
