New Books! Yay!

When I began blogging I was a book-buying junkie! Then, in about 2008, I decided I just simply had too many books and really cut back on my buying. Since rejoining the library in 2009 I have gotten even more picky about what I buy. There are still books that I have to have though. It's the plain and simple truth. There is always review copies, which I still am lucky enough to receive, but then there is my yearly pre-orders. Since I bought the books in January and February that I wanted last year I am a bit slow with my yearly shopping spree. And, since I purchased the books I have remembered a few that I didn't include that I will have to buy eventually. The good thing about pre-orders is that it looks like a lot of books, but the release dates are spread out over the year. I also want the new Fables that is rumoured to be out this year and the new book in Patricia Briggs ALPHA & OMEGA series.

Radiant Shadows by Melissa Marr - This is my impulse buy. I am still new to her and I haven't read the third book in the series, but I figured I would get it at the same time as everything else anyways...

The Dead-Tossed Waves by Carrie Ryan - The Forests of Hands and Teeth was one of my very favourite reads from last year, so I am so psyched that this book will be out soon!

The Girl Who Chased the Moon by Sarah Addison Allen - I read her first two books from the library and loved them, so she has been added to my 'have to buy' list. I eventually hope to get copies of my own of her other two books.

Murderous Procession by Ariana Franklin - New book in one of my favourite series. I think this is book four, but it could be five. I read her new book every year, so I am excited about this one. This is a perfect series for the Women Unbound challenge, by the way!

Tales of the Otherworld by Kelley Armstrong - I own every book in this series, so you know I am not going to miss out on more! Like her short story collection from last year, I am pretty sure these are stories that have all ready been released before.

Waking the Witch by Kelley Armstrong - This is the new novel. I still haven't read some of her old ones, but it's just a habit... I have to own her! One day I am going to have all the books read...

Silver Borne by Patricia Briggs - This is the whole reason that I decided to do my pre-orders today. This will be out soon and I wanted to be sure I got it! New Mercedes Thompson, so you know I am excited.

Spy Glass by Maria Snyder - The third book in the Glass trilogy. I am supposed to be reading book two at the moment, but I am really suffering in the reading department so far this year... Regardless, it's Maria Snyder and I must own her books!

Jack of Fables - Vol 7 - The New Adventures of Jack and Jack - Yay! I don't like this series as much as Fables, but at least it is something to look forward to! I am all caught up. Do you know I only bought my first Fables in January of last year? That means I have read 14 Fables and 6 Jack of Fables since then. There were gift cards involved, but still, don't add that up...

Cinderella: From Fabletown with Love - Seriously, Fables empire, just release Fables! All these spin-offs are getting costly... But, well, you know I will need to read it because I love Cinderella, so....

The Unwritten - Vol 2 - Inside Man by Mike Carey - Dear Ana, this is YOUR fault!!! I read book one and liked it so much, I pre-ordered book 2... Your fault!

Dark Moon of Avalon: A Novel of Trystan and Isolde by Anna Elliott - I really liked book 1. This was supposed to be out soon, but I see it is pushed back until September. I still really want to know what happens, so I decided to just order it now instead of waiting until later.


  1. Awesome selection there. I <3 Kelly Armstrong and can't resist getting her books when they come out.

    I think I've added a few new authors to my list, lol, just from your blog post.

  2. Bella: My Kelley Armstrong section looks very nice lined up on my shelves together... :) I am glad you found some new authors. For the most part I would stand behind them all 100 percent. :)

  3. I'm still a book buying junkie. LOL!!

  4. Brooke: Yeah, I still buy probably too many books because my TBR pile is not exactly getting smaller very fast!

  5. Yaaay for a new Mercy Thompson, though I still have to read book four. And I really need to get into Kelly Armstrong a bit more. Nice list... and if it's any consolation I'm still buying way too many books... but I'm trying and that's the main thing. :-)

  6. Yay for new books! :) Have you found Fragile Eternity yet? I'm ready to start whenever you are!

  7. Cath: Kelley Armstrong and Patricia Briggs are the only paranormal books that I really read anymore...

    Eva: um, no, but I am going to look for it RIGHT now!

  8. Excellent choices!!! I just picked up The Forest of Hands and Teeth from the library. I read the first chapter or two in Barnes and Noble one night, and I knew I had to get my hands on it. Can't wait for more Carrie Ryan from what I know of Forest so far.

    I'm also completely onboard for Sarah Addison Allen's new book. I'm on that library wait list, too! lol

    Enjoy your goodies!

  9. Andi: I love Carrie Ryan! I could have just got the Sarah Addison Allen book from the library, but I decided I wanted to own her... Might as well start buying her now!

  10. Those are great selections! I have Sarah Addison Allen and Carrie Ryan's books in my TBR. My pile is growing larger and higher by the day and it really scares me.

  11. There is a Cinderella spin-off of Fables???!!! I will so be there!

  12. I'm on my third month of no book buying and you know, it's actually not that bad! I think when the year is over I will be much more selective about which books I spend my money on.

    I've never read Sarah Addison Allen's books but they look cute. I especially like the description for The Sugar Queen.

  13. OOh, I had no idea there was a Fables Cinderella spin-off! I love her to death! Hopefully I'll be able to get a copy from the library.
