Eve & Adam by Grant and Applegate
This ARC popped in by mail and I was overjoyed to see its gorgeous, shiny face. Can't wait to start reading!
Two gorgeous vintage books:
The Power of Six by Pittacus Lore
My adorable grandparents decided to buy me a book while they were visiting, so this is what I chose. I loooove it! :D
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
LOVE IT! This book rocked...
Sarah was radical and yes, you're seeing the words "Hans Zimmer" on there. We have very similar tastes in music, we discovered. :D
Medea by Euripides - $1
Euripides wrote one of my favorite plays ever, The Trojan Women. And I can't wait to read this one! :D
Cleopatra's Daughter by Michelle Moran - $2
This looks excellent!! I really can't wait to dive in...from what I've read so far, it's super great!
The Host by Stephanie Meyer - $2
I never ever ever ever EVER thought I'd own one of her books, but here it is. I'm actually intrigued. We shall see. ;)
An awesome blogging friend of mine, Ashley from Ashley Loves Books, recently attended ALA and came home with over 50 ARCs. And...well...she's been awesomely lending some of her ARCs out, so that everyone can get some love. ;)
The Brides of Rollrock Island by Margo Lanagan
Now, I wasn't quite sure about this one. I had no idea if I would like it, what it was about, or if I should even give it a go. But when Ashley surprised me with it, I decided, heck, that's what I want to read! And boy oh boy oh BOY it was flipping INCREDIBLE! Full review to come soon, promise! But for now, preorder time!!
Dark Star by Bethany Frenette
SUCH a hilarious book. I'm in the middle right now and loving every moment. It's almost like...if The Avengers was a book. I dunno, maybe not that awesome, but it still has that epic superhero feel to it. Like old fashioned Marvel superhero. :D
The Archived by Victoria Schwab
I can't wait to read this one!! Seriously, it looks original and spooky and totally worth my time... I hope it is as amazing as it sounds!
Such Wicked Intent by Kenneth Oppel (Book 2)
This might have quite possibly made it to the Top 10 favorite books of 2012 list. Not sure yet, but it's definitely close to holding that title. It was so beautiful and amazing and wonderful and OH JUST GO READ MY REVIEW.
Ascend by Amanda Hocking - $4
Loser that I am, I haven't read any of Hocking's books. So, no, I haven't read any of the Trylle trilogy, but I so want to! And now I own the whole trilogy - so yay!!
Swann's Way by Marcel Proust
My classics addiction has flared up again - keep scrolling down to see what I mean. I think Swann's Way looks extremely unusual and totally what I want - a personal and very detailed insight into French culture. OH yah baby!
Graceling by Kristin Cashore - $4
I am intrigued...I don't know if I'll like it, but I'm willing to give it a go. :)
Sherlock Holmes by Doyle - $.50
My mommy bought this for me...it's a 1950's copy and it's got so much character!
Cyrano de Bergerac by Edmond Rostand - $1
I don't like the story, but come on. It's in French. How could I pass that up?!
Bel Canto by Ann Patchett - $1
Looks. So. GOOD.
City of Glory by Beverly Swerling - $1
LOOK at how gorgeous this cover is!!! I would have probably bought it even if it DIDN'T look so amazing. But it does - so bonus!!
The Bostonians by Henry James
See what I mean? These full-priced classics (even if they are pretty cheap) are going to buy me out of house and home. ;)
The Possessed by Fyodor Dostoevsky
Not only am I a classics junkie....but I'm a Dostoevsky junkie. I'll read his stuff over and over and over again. He's like, top 5 favorite authors ever. Yep, he made the epic list. I plan to keep him there for eternity.
And viola! The piles and piles and piles I've purchased in the last month...or received...or...you know. :D
Aren't they just pretty??? *swoons*
