I hadn’t intended on buying 5 more books, but for whatever reason I decided to go birthday shopping for my friend in a book store. That was how I blew my entire month’s book budget. Anyway, here are the books I bought:
- The Clan of the Cave Bear by Jean M. Auel
- Old Man’s War by John Scalzi
- The Kingdom of Gods by N.K. Jemisin
- Delirium by Lauren Oliver
- Wondrous Strange by Lesley Livingston
Wondrous Strange is what I originally bought for my friend’s birthday present, but then my shopping kept going. Delirium by Lauren Oliver is a book that didn’t really sound appealing to me before I read an excerpt online and liked what I saw. The same was true of The Clan of the Cave Bear, but I’m skeptical about how that one will turn out. The Kingdom of Gods by N. K. Jemisin is a book I’ve been looking at for a while, but never found it in my small local bookstore. And yes, after following John Scalzi’s blog for 3 years I finally got around to buying one of his books. If his blog is anything to judge his writing by, I have a feeling I’m going to enjoy Old Man’s War.
