This week’s haul was a really good one! I got two review books that were huge surprises, two great library books, and I picked up some great looking books at my used bookstore.

    Holy mother load! Where did you pick up all those awesome books? Doll Bones has been received very well by reviewers, I shall be keeping an eye out for your progress like I am with Fifth Grave! Have a great day, and a fantastic week!

    I'm very excited for Doll Bones! I've been on a total Middle Grade kick so I'm hoping I love this. The rest of them are from my local used bookstore… all of those books in that big ass pile cost me $5. lol I never want to move out of Reno solely because of that bookstore.

    My library is pretty damn amazing. If I get a request into them in time they'll pre-order stuff so it's there a day or two after publication. I can't remember the last time they denied a request too.
    My used bookstore is also pretty amazing… that huge pile of books only cost me $5. lol Once a month they have a 'bag sale' and you can fill a cloth bag for $5. Most of them are super beat up but usually you can find some decent ones. 🙂

    GAME! I'm waiting for my Audible credit to get it. It's disgustingly expensive, but I really liked the narrator so I want to go for the audio again.
    Anyway, I can't WAIT to read it. It should be day after tomorrow.
    I totally want to read about The Tudors so I'll be o the lookout for your review of The Spanish Bride.

  5. You got a lot of books there, Bonnie! Have fun with Charley Davidson. I'm always cracking up when I read her novels! Enjoy your reads. 🙂

    Doll Bones is at the library already? That was fast. You must have a really great library system. I really want to read that one. And yay for used bookstores! I don't really have a good one here though. I miss that.

  7. Wow! What a haul! I'm so excited for Dolly Bones. Last week I got Game at the library and I'm hoping I love it 🙂

    All audiobooks are crazy expensive. lol Too bad my library doesn't have the audio, I may have gone that route.

  9. Oooh, you bought all the things. Looks like you had a fun shopping trip!

    Also, I've heard Darynda Jones' adult books are hilarious!

  10. I recently got The Outcast myself — looking forward to hearing what you think about that one and also Joanne Harris' Holy Fools, since I have that unread on my shelf as well!
