Look What Just Arrived! (#7)

Carrie Pictures 2012 280Yes, I’m posting today.  For real this time!  And yes, I went to the bookstore.  Again.  So what did I get there?

  • Hade’s Daughter by Sara Douglass
  • Kushiel’s Mercy by Jacqueline Carey
  • Kushiel’s Justice by Jacqueline Carey
  • Legends anthology
  • The Josephine B. Trilogy by Sandra Gulland
  • The Memoirs of Cleopatra by Margaret George

Most of these, except for the Jacqueline Carey books, were completely random reads.  I was in the Used section after finding nothing too interesting in the small YA section (way too much vampire stuff) and stumbled across most of these.  Hade’s Daughter is completely random and frankly I know nothing about it, but I picked it up because it was about ancient Greece.  The Legends anthology (volume 1) is also another impulse buy but I’m looking forward to this one because it has entries by Stephen King, Orson Scott Card and a couple other big names.

The Josephine B. trilogy sounds oddly familiar, but I know I haven’t read it before.  Most likely I had been drooling over it on Amazon in the past, but never bothered ordering it.  The Memoirs of Cleopatra is one I’ve had my eye on for a while, but for $30 it was never happening.  This is one case where I love buying used because although it is over 900 pages, the price should not be that high for a paperback book.  But hey, what do I know about the factors involved in pricing a book?  (Not much, to be honest.)  What I do know is that I bought all of these used books for less than the cover price of The Memoirs of Cleopatra new.
