Christmas Browsing

So, I know that I normally get gift certificates for Christmas for book stores. Today, while book browsing, I decided to begin to decide on some of the books that I was going to want to get with the gift certificates. I will change my mind about a million times, but that is the fun of it! Anyway, I felt like sharing what is on the current list:

Rapunzel's Revenge by Shannon Hale
The Greatest Knight by Elizabeth Chadwick
The Complete Maus: A Survivor's Tale by Art Spiegelman
Dark Crystal Vol 1 (for Rhinoa's Challenge)
Return to Labyrinth Vol 1 and 2 (for Rhinoa's Challenge)
When Demon's Walk by Patricia Briggs
Steal the Dragon by Patricia Briggs

The Pre-Orders:
The Morganville Vampires: Book Five: Lord of Misrule by Rachel Caine
Sookie Stackhouse Boxed Set by Charlaine Harris
The King's Grace by Anne Easter Smith
Grave Goods by Ariana Franklin
General Winston's Daughter by Sharon Shinn (paperback)
Return to Labyrinth Vol 3 (for Rhinoa's Challenge)
Bone Crossed by Patricia Briggs

Yeah, that's a lot of books... I have to point out that I was very excited to get the rest of Simon R. Green's Nightside series, but the two new books that contain the rest of the stories are not available anymore! So, now I have to get them all separately, which is really annoying because I wanted the collected works... This took him off the list in protest.

Oh, and did people see the cover for Charles de Lint's new book out next month? I have him on my mind because I am reading Widdershins right now. It is Subterranean Press, but it is so pretty! I just love the cover...

And, yes, I am the person that said a couple days ago that I have too many books and am running out of room for them... I listen to myself, well, right? In my defense, I hardly bought any books in 2008...

Anyway, any thoughts on my current list?


  1. I cannot tell you how much I want Bone Crossed to be out already... I need more Mercy. Your lists look great, a few on there I want to get as well. I hope you enjoy the Return to Labyrinth books, the artwork is beautiful and it is great to revisit a childhood classic. I really must read Rapunzel's Revenge.

  2. I know! I really wish Bone Crossed was out too. Even a sequel to Cry Wolf would be nice, but even though there is a tentative title, that won't be until the summer or so. Did you see that Briggs has a story in a new Christmas anthology? I saw it on her web site but have yet to check on Amazon when it comes out. It is about a character from Moon Called.

  3. Bone Crossed sounds like an interesting book. I may have to check out the series. I really enjoyed Charlaine Harris' Sookie Stackhouse series other than book 1. Did The Morganville Vampire series get better after book 1? I didn't really care for it so haven't read the rest of the series.

  4. Patricia Briggs is a worthwhile read. I enjoy her books! As to Rachel Caine, I just read the Morganville Vampires series for something light. They aren't great, but they aren't terrible either.
