First IMM of December… I can’t believe it’s December already!! I’m planning a big party/giveaway if I hit 100 on my blog followers (4 more!) and Facebook page (18 more!) by the end of the year – so I’d love you to bits if you would oblige me and help me on this goal! 😛
Anyway, bought some goodies this week, but they’re for my Secret Santa selection, so I can’t share what they are 😉 Instead, here’s what I got this past week! It’s a little ridiculous!!
The Iron Knight (Iron Fey, #4) by Julie Kagawa <– Bought as part of Chapters’ Buy 3, Get 4th Free deal last weekend. I already had the first three (which I still have to read) so I figured I’d pick up this one to complete the set… even tho it doesn’t QUITE match the first three I have!
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak <– Also bought with the Chapters deal.. A bit of a random choice.. but it was hard not to buy books that I had on my wishlist.. for friends and family (and Secret Santas) that might have already picked something up!
The Virgin Cure by Ami McKay <– Bought on Kobo during their Cyber Monday 50% off sale!
In a Heartbeat by Loretta Ellsworth <– Bought on Kobo during Cyber Monday 50% off sale… for only $2.77!
Collecting Innocents (The 911 Abduction series, #2) by CK Webb & DJ Weaver <– Won from giveaway on Melanie’s Book Addiction.
Cruelty to Innocents (The 911 Abduction series, #1) by CK Webb & DJ Weaver <– Well, since I won book #2, I had to get book #1! Only $0.99 from Smashwords!
Okay, so that above there was all obtained through the majority of the week. In the course of two days (Thursday & Friday), it got a bit more crazy…
This extremely generous box of books came from Hachette UK/Canada on Thursday! I’m not even going to attempt to list them all but there’s quite an extensive collection of genres that I’d like!
So if THAT wasn’t enough, I went book shopping with a bunch of the blogger gals in Toronto on Friday. If you want to NOT spend a lot and buy a ton of books, don’ t go with fellow book lovers because it will never happen. That being said, I picked up all of these while out with the girls! It’s tough buying books that I want but aren’t already on my wishlist, being so close to Xmas!! 🙂
City of Ashes (The Mortal Instruments, #2) by Cassandra Clare <– Bought at BMV used book store for only $3.99! I’ve read City of Bones (#1) and been meaning to read the rest of the series. It’s been a while tho.. might have to read the first one again to refresh my memory.
City of Glass (The Mortal Instruments, #3) by Cassandra Clare <– Bought at BMV for only $4.99!
I am Number Four (Lorien Legacies, #1) by Pittacus Lore <– Bought at BMV for only $5.99! I hear it’s fantastic.. haven’t seen the movie but curious about the book.
Across the Universe (Across the Universe, #1) by Beth Revis <– Bought at World’s Biggest Bookstore. Had to get the first one since I got the ARC of the sequel!
Unearthly (Unearthly, #1) by Cynthia Hand <– Bought at WBB. I absolutely picked this up because of the cover. Shiny gorgeous purple with beautiful silver script. Plus with Wendy @ A Cupcake and a Latte‘s recommendation, I decided to give it a check out!
Variant (Variant, #1) by Robison Wells <– Bought at WBB
Shine by Lauren Myracle <– Bought at WBB. Been hearing good things about this book!
Last but not least…
Michelle Madow is holding a fun cover design contest on her blog.
Would love if you could stop by and vote (aka “like”) for mine!
You have until December 10th to vote.
