Sunday Book Coveting... I Bought Books!

Other than a couple books here and there to continue on with series, I haven't really bought any books since I spent my gift certificates from Christmas. I decided that I deserved a splurge, so splurge I did!

So, what did I buy? I bought:

Fables: 1001 Nights Of Snowfall by Bill Willingham, etc.
Fables Vol 10: The Good Prince by Bill Willingham, etc.
Fables Vol. 11: War And Pieces by Bill Willingham, etc.
Carpe Corpus: Morganville Vampire Series by Rachel Caine
The Ghost Brigades by John Scalzi

Then, since I was already being bad... I decided to preorder books...

Hunting Ground by Patricia Briggs
Sea Glass by Maria V. Snyder
Graceling (paperback) by Kristin Cashone
Fables Vol 12: The Dark Ages by Bill Willingham, etc.
Fire by Kristin Cashore
Fables Vol 13: The Great Fables Crossover by Bill Willingham

That should do me until October when I have my birthday.

What about you? Bought any books lately?


  1. Those sound great! I bought loads of books, or rather, loads of books came in the mail last week. I hope to do up the Mailbox Monday post tomorrow. :)

    I've heard so much about Graceling. It's def on my tbr list now. As for buying's the only category of items where I allow myself to splurge if I have to. I've stopped trying to put limits on my book-spendage. It's too cruel!!

    I have, I have. I bought Murakami's Underground, a true book about the gas attack on Tokyo in 1995. And the one I've been seeing on so many blogs called The Elegance of The Hedgehog. I didn't know Scalzi had a new one (at least to me!) out. I'll have to look into that.

  4. Oooh, you ordered Fables 13 and 4 already! When will 14 be out? 13 is out in August, right?

    Also, you know my answer to that last question :P

  5. A splurge every now and then is a must. :-) Sounds like you've got some great ones there, Kelly! I am not sure I could wait until October before the next splurge. You've got great willpower! :-)

  6. Good for you! I always like it when other people buy books :p It makes me feel better about myself, lol. I can't believe you haven't really splurged since Christmas!! And now you're going to wait until October?! You have more patience than me! I really need to finish the Fables series so I can start reading them as they come out!

  7. You have the best stack! I think this might hold you over until October. =) Happy reading.

  8. Buying books is never splurging, in my opinion. My theory is that without books to read your brain would turn to mush - so books are as necessary as food!

    Frack, are Fables 13 and 14 out/coming soon?! I seriously need to get back at that series.

  9. I have heard so much about Graceling. Can't wait to hear your thoughts, too, Kelly!

    And I have Maria Snyder's Poison Study on my shelf but haven't read it. Some day...

    In a couple of weeks, though, is a huge library book sale, so I'm sure I'll be bringing it all home then!

  10. I sometimes can't resist either! I just bought a couple yesterday. I don't think I could go all the way until October without a new books. Good luck to you. =)

  11. wow, what a treat to yourself. I've been haunting the library book sales lately, though there is no scheduled sale for August, so I will have to wait until sept. for more books. However, I did recently order a book with a GC I received.

  12. I think you definitely deserved the splurge after not buying any books for a while. I've not read any of these but am definitely interested in some. Enjoy your loot!

  13. ohhh i think you will like graceling!
