This has two advantages: More money to spend on books that I actually like, and less space on my shelves occupied by books that I don't appreciate.
Yes, the space on my shelves is getting smaller :(
Since it may take me a little while to finish the books that I'm reading at the moment, No Dominion (Walker Papers 7.5) by C. E. Murphy and Swift (Fairy Rebels #4) by R. J. Anderson, I decided to share with you guys my latest book purchases. Because, let's face it, we book lovers are curious like that! ;)
Into the Still Blue by Veronica Rossi
Okay, you wouldn't believe the time I wasted deciding which edition of this book to buy!
First, I was set on buying the American edition.
Then comparing book sizes (yes, I do that) it came to my attention, that the American edition wouldn't "sit well" side by side with the other two books that I already have, Atom edited!
Then it was the prices!
Then it was the size... again!
Finally, I decided that I liked the Atom cover edition best! o_O
I know... I'm nuts.
Also, still waiting for this edition to be released....
Hearts in Darkness by Laura Kaye
This is a book which ebook I read last year... or maybe 2012? Ups, I'm not sure any more.
Suffice to say that I loved it! So, for a long, long time I kept searching for this book on BD, ( because of course I also wanted it in paperback) without any luck.
Up until a few weeks ago, when I finally found it there! ;)
Lost Lake by Sarah Addison Allen
Since the publisher of this book kindly allowed me to read an arc of this book, this story is no longer a secret to me :)
Like I said in my review, it may not have been my favourite book Sarah Addison Allen book, but I still loved it. Then I have been buying all the books by this author, so of course I would have to buy this one as well!
In the end, my only question would be: Buy this in Portuguese or English?
English of course, because I love this cover, and this way I won't have to scream at the translation! ;)
I don't even care if the colours won't combine ;)
Here are the Portuguese covers of SAA's books:
No way are we going to design a cover more beautiful than the one from Lost Lake!
At least I hope not!
Finally, I also bought the long awaited Cress By Marissa Meyer:
This lovely paperback edition will also be making its stop by my house! ;)
Since I've loved the previous two books, and the world the author created, I can't tell you how anxious I am to finally read this story!
Also, and taking advantage of some big discounts I also bough (but in the translated editions):
Of course I was familiar with this author's work, mostly due to the Alex Ryder movie adaptation, but it was only when I started seeing the tv series Foyle's War (that i loved) that takes place during World War II that I decided to give this series a try.
This one, I only bought it because a long time ago I saw the movie adaptation, and I found it curious. I'm talking about Peter Hoeg's Smilla's Sense of Snow:
Let's see what's better. The book or the movie :)
What books have you been buying?
