Well, after another lovely book-shopping Friday evening with fellow bloggers Wendy @ A Cupcake and a Latte, Nicole @ All I Ever Read…, Christa @ Hooked on Books and Evie @ Bookish… my (fairly light) shopping haul is down below!
And there’s just 3 days left to enter my 2011 accomplishments party & giveaway to win your choice of 2 books from my 2011 #50bookpledge read list! (2 international winners to be chosen)
The Litigators by John Grisham <– I had won this on a Twitter contest before the holidays and for a while I couldn’t remember if that actually happened.. lol.. It hadn’t shown up yet, and I couldn’t find the tweet or DM that confirmed my winning, even tho I was sure of it. Well – guess I wasn’t crazy at least!
The Book of Jonas by Stephen Dau <– Won from Penguin Canada via Twitter. Premise sounds REALLY good!
Hearts that Survive: A Novel of the Titanic by Yvonne Lehman <– For read & review from Abingdon Press via Netgalley. I’ve always been fascinated by the Titanic, and this sounded interesting to check out!
The Taming by Teresa Toten <– For read & review from Random House via Netgalley. I actually think I preordered this for SUPER cheap off Book Depository when Wendy @ A Cupcake and a Latte had mentioned it.. Oh well!
The Start-Up (The Start-Up, #1), The Anti-Social Network (The Start-Up, #2) & The Beautiful Code (The Start-Up, #3) by Sadie Hayes <– Bought on Kobo for their Buy 2 Get 1 Free deal! (Buy book 1 & 2 of The Start-Up series and get the 3rd book free! Amazing deal – on till Feb 26!)
Starters by Lissa Price <– For read & review from Random House via Netgalley
And then… my book shopping haul! It was fairly light, and mostly on sale or from BMV (used book store)
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling <– A gorgeous leatherbound, gold-trimmed page copy purchased at BMV for only $8.99! (Yes, I do realize I have this first book 3 times now, but the other two are “Philosopher’s Stone”.. so now I have a pretty first-book copy of the American title version!)
The Woman in Black by Susan Hill <– Bought at World’s Biggest Bookstore. I gotta read it before seeing the movie! (and of course had to get the Dan Radcliffe version!)
The Poison Diaries (Poison Diaries, #1) by Maryrose Wood <– Bought at Indigo, on sale for $4.99!
Article 5 by Kristen Simmons <– ARC leant to me by Wendy! Been excited to read this one!
The Knife of Never Letting Go (Chaos Walking, #1) by Patrick Ness <– Bought at BMV for $4.99. Highly recommended by Evie (after getting me to read just the -hilarious- first sentence!)
See! Didn’t go too crazy! 😉
