Bungle's ShelfSo no matter how hard I try not to buy books something's always grabs me & honestly books don't let me leave until I have bought at least one. And this week The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa was that book! I know Sal loved it & when I saw it was just £1.99 how could I not buy it!? I was naughty & I bought this copy from The Works, which also had the The Iron Fey series on 3 for £5!! You can't complain at those prices!!! As an aside you can also find the Midnight Reads review for The Immortal Rules here.
Sally's ShelfWell, I'd like to think I've been a bit better behaved this week. I went Xmas shopping as you do and acquired two books to add to my collection although as with Bungle there was an offer on so what could I do? I bought Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers and Double Cross by Malorie Blackman. This is the last in the Noughts and Crosses series so I intend to sit down and devour all four over the Christmas period. I can't wait!
I also got my hands on a couple of books for review this week. I was incredibly excited to be given a preview copy of Shadowhunters and Downworlders: A Reader by Cassandra Clare. This is a series of essays, written by a host of amazing authors about the characters, their relationships and the places that exist within the world of The Mortal Instruments. It's quite a read! A shame this isn't out for Xmas because it'll certainly provides more than a few days entertainment. You can read the review here. I also got a copy of Til The World Ends, which contains three novellas written by Julie Kagawa, Ann Aguirre and Karen Duvall. All three look utterly amazing!
