In The Mailbox...

Aren't they pretty? :)
This means I have two new books to read (I already read an arc of Lost Lake... that doesn't mean that I'm not going to re-read it, one of these days).
Big expectations for R.J. Anderson's Nomad and Vera Nazarian's Cobweb Forest.
What about you guys?
What books have you been buying?

  1. Ahhhh, so shiny! Shiny books are my downfall. Ever since I started our blog with my friend, I've noticed just how shallow I really am. >.>

    I recently bought three books by Lucy-Anne Holmes because I ended up reading the one book I had of her (a friend didn't like it and gave it to me) and I'm not even halfway through but it's terribly funny and I have no impulse control.)

    I can't wait for your reviews of the two unread ones! Especially Lost Lake, I've been eyeing that one lately.

  2. Mine too!! :)
    Of course you're not!! o_O We bookworms are interesting and...deep! But never, ever shallow!! We just like our books!! lol
    There's nothing better than discovering a new favorite series!
    Do you like Sarah Addison Allen's writing?
    I already read an Arc of Lost Lake through Netgalley (but here you have it!), i couldn't resist buying it! Not with that pretty, pretty cover! o_O
    Oh, i liked it. but maybe not as much as her previous works, such as Garden Spells, the Peach Keeper and maybe, The Girl who chased the Moon.

    1. Hahaha, I am terrible sometimes, though, I tend to choose books solely based on their cover and once I start reading I'm always "whelp, I should've read the blurb at least." Serves me right for being blindsided by the pretty (though it's not always bad, sometimes I'm just terribly surprised by certain plot twists, even though the blurb already hints at them!)

      I read Garden Spells aaaaaaaaages ago, and I loved it so much, it was really great. I just sort of lost sight of her other books and never got around to reading the others. Her writing is really lovely, I think, and she managed to put so much magic into the book without being hamfisted about it, I really adored that.

  3. I can relate to that. I guess most of us, have a soft spot towards pretty covers :)
    For instance Cruel Beauty, has an amazing cover! Beautiful!

    For instance, there's a book whose cover is particularly pretty. It's a fairy tale retelling, and at the time it was released, i was crazy about it! But the reviews are not that good, so it's still on hold! But even so, i hope one day to give it a go...

    She's one of my favorite authors! I love her writing! It reminds me of Alice Hoffman, if this last one didn't kill most of her characters o_O of course!
    There's at least two other authors, who apparently follow SAA type of writing, but i still haven't got around in reading their stories (well truth be told, i did read a Sharla Lovelace story, but it was only a short one!).
