Between some Kindle sales, an Audible sale, and my Book of the Month order, I’ve got tons to share today. 🙂

I finally discovered Clive Barker last year and I’ve slowly been accumulating his collection of stories. And can you believe I haven’t read any Scalzi yet? I’ve been on a bit of a true crime kick lately and had to get Helter Skelter when I saw it on the audible sale! And Thick as Thieves, of course. Added bonus: Steve West narrates. 🙂

Kindle
Abarat (Abarat #1) by Clive Barker

Audibles

I’ve gotten a bit lazy with my weekly posts! I’m exhausted practically all the time lately and usually by the time I realize that I don’t have a post for the next day, I’m usually in bed and good luck getting me up. I haven’t been spending my weekends getting stuff ready for the week and I need to get back into the groove of that so I have some posts ready to go in advance and not just the night before. 🙂

I realized I keep forgetting to share my BOTM pick from April (lol, my May box is already en route.) I haven’t read it yet because I haven’t been quite in the mood yet but I’m very excited to get around to it.

I (of course) pre-ordered ACOWAR (and also took the day off work just to read it). Sadly, it was a bit of a disappointment for me. I picked up Wedding Girl on sale for Kindle and an Agatha Christie. My library checkouts are a bit random. I don’t often read Non-Fiction but I have always been fascinated by the Tudor time period. What led up to the Tudor time period? Well, that’s my current obsession. I’m currently reading The Wars of the Roses and I absolutely love it. I’ve since added a crazy amount of fascinating sounding histories to my TBR because apparently it’s quickly become my thing. I’m all ears for recommendations. 🙂

Hello, everyone! I missed posting last weekend because I had a terrible cold, so here are my posts for the last two weeks. 🙂

Got two review books this week: The Boy on the Bridge and Lightwood. I snagged up a few Kindle sales too. I’m most excited to finally read Love is a Mix Tape… I’ve been wanting that for ages. And I had to snag up a digital copy of Darkfever because it was (and still is!) only $0.99.

I also keep forgetting to share my growing collection of audibles in part because of sales, an Audible giveaway I won, Kindle matchmaker deals, and my renewed membership. Here’s what I’ve snagged over the last couple of months.

Another week has gone by. I can’t believe it’s already April guys! I got to sit out on my balcony for the first time in what feels like ages so I’m looking forward to more of those days. I didn’t have to work a billion hours this week so I got some things posted on the blog this week. I also went to see Ellen Hopkins at my local Barnes & Noble yesterday and got to chat (more like chatter in indecipherable tones because I was a bundle of nerves) with her and ask her a couple of questions. I’ll try to write up a small post about it later this week. 🙂

Last week I got a super fun package from Big Honcho Media and Disney-Hyperion. That little sneaker keychain is my new favorite thing. 🙂

OH MAN. What a week. I didn’t get a whole lot done on the blog but I’m surprised I got ANYTHING done considering I worked damn near 70 hours last week. I’m really glad March is over, to say the least. I got a few books in the mail including a really awesome box from Big Honcho Media which alas, isn’t included in this post because I didn’t have a chance to get a picture yet. Next week though! This week is all about American Gods. 🙂

New Celeste Ng! So very excited for this one after how much I loved Everything I Never Told You. Attachments is my favorite Rowell and I’ve been thinking about a re-read so I knew I needed to snag it for my personal collection. Johnny Panic and the Bible of Dreams is a Plath I never heard of but I do love her so and I’ve been dying to get my hands on some more Christie and I got this one from my used bookstore for $2. 🙂

Happy Sunday, everyone. 🙂 This week was excessively tiring for some reason so I didn’t any reviews knocked out. Better luck next week. Except I’m working a ton of overtime the next two weeks so probably not. lol

I’M SO EXCITED FOR WAKING GODS. I’m trying to finish a few of the books that I’m already in the middle of before diving in but I really can’t wait much longer. lol The Mists of Avalon is (was?) only $1.99 on Kindle and I figure if I ever read it, it’d be on Kindle because it’s so enormous. And I had to get You Are Here, the new coloring book from The Bloggess. It’s far more lovely than I expected with some gorgeous drawings to color and some incredibly insightful sayings.

One of my blogging goals of the year was to try to do more discussion posts and I posted my first one this week. People found it be a bit morbid by the sound of it… but welcome to how my mind works when prioritizing things. lol It helped to put things into perspective a bit and I hope you like it. I also posted my rundown for February, a trio of reviews on celebrity memoirs, and a post to celebrate Mardi Gras where I recommend books set in New Orleans. Hoping you all had an excellent week and a great one to come.

Saw this one pop up for $1.99 on Kindle and couldn’t help it. I adored Dare’s Castle’s Ever After series and I’ve been dying to get around to her Spindle Cove series.

(New books in the right stack) I visited the bookstore for the first time in forever! I had just recently done a shelf cleanup and had some books to trade and I ended up coming home with four bright shiny new ones! My Libba Bray and Rachel Bach series are officially complete! I also picked up the newest Sarah Waters book and the only one that I didn’t have yet!
