I’ve been promising a big post about all the books I’ve managed to get my grubby little hands on lately, and here it is. Finally! Yesterday, I only managed to post my non-spoilery thoughts about a book I recently read and LOVED.
Today, I am going to give you a glimpse into my crazy TBR pile. I’m not kidding when I say that this is just a tiny snapshot of all the books I have been given, bought, borrowed or
stolen found. In fact, the books shown below were all ‘acquired’ in the last couple of weeks. It’s no wonder I stay up reading ’til 2am most nights, otherwise I’d never get anywhere! 😉
These are ARCs I still have to read from my Book Fairy:
Ana also forced me to take these, as they are from one of her favourite series of all time, and I have yet to fall in love with them (can’t wait!):
She gave me all of these, too (a mixture of ‘old’ and new):
Then, as if all that wasn’t enough, Ana bought me these two for my birthday (*flower*):
Sarah Rees Brennan made me buy this*:
I finally bought the next one for myself (I’ve had my eye on it for ages, and will hopefully send it onto the lovely Ari when I’m done):
This was my birthday gift to myself:
The Beastly Bride: Tales of the Animal People edited by Ellen Datlow & Terri Windling (Illustrated by Charles Vess – squee!)
I rarely buy hardbacks – especially not hardback anthologies, for some reason – but I’ve wanted this one ever since I first saw the cover posted on a blog months ago. I love anything inspired by folklore and mytholgy, and the previous collections edited by Datlow and Windling have been amazing.
These two were birthday presents from someone else:
If you read about how I got all of these, I actually only bought three of them. O.o I am so lucky to have wonderful friends who help feed my book addiction, knowing that I can’t afford as many as I’d love to! 😉
So, what have you just bought/borrowed/etc.? Or have you read any of these?
*Seriously, she practically marched me to the desk in Forbidden Planet. She kept pointing to the sticker on the front and saying, “SEE!! It’s got £2 off! This is MEANT TO BE!”**
**I might have embellished this story slightly.
