Hi. I'm B.E. and I'm addicted to books. And actually, I'm okay with that. Other than my budget, no one gets hurt and my addiction actually puts money in other writer's pockets.
Yesterday I made a major score. I didn't get everything I wanted and I didn't find everything I was looking for, but I did rake in some yummy new titles.
What I did get:
Embers by Laura Bickle (an new-to-me author - recommended by Amazon). I started this one last night.
Every Demon Has His Day by Cara Lockwood (I read the 2nd book in this series last week, and when I saw this in Borders' sales bin, I snapped it up.)
Mind Games by Carolyn Crane (an impulse buy)
Nightlife (Cal Leandros - Book 1) by Rob Thurman (I've been hearing about Mr. Thurman for a while now and decided to take the plunge)
The Highlander's Sword by Amanda Forester (been on my wishlist for over a month - about time I bought it)
Heart of Darkness - a compilation of shorts by Gena Showalter, Maggie Shayne and Susan Krinard.
Fablehaven: Keys to the Demon Prison - by Brandon Mull (I'm totally hooked on this MG series. Thank god I made the mistake of thinking I hadn't bought the 4th book - because as I was searching for that one, I found this one. Yay!)
I'm still needing to buy Silver James's book Faerie Fate. Neither B&N nor Borders had it in stock, so I'll be ordering it off Amazon, I guess. I also skipped the latest Dresden Files novel - Changes - because paying $26 for the hardcover made my little miserly heart whimper. I'll pick it up in softcover eventually.
Oh, and I still have a couple books on my TBR pile to read. Even though I bought it in February, I still haven't cracked open Academe's Fury by Jim Butcher. I have to be in the right frame of mind to tackle the Codex Alera books and I'm not there yet. I also picked up a neat looking title the other day called Lady Dragon by Jewell Mason.
This should provide me with my fix for at least a couple weeks.
What are you reading? Find any good new authors to share? Did I forget to buy something you think I really should be reading?
