Look What Just Arrived! (#16)

Carrie Pictures 2013 075This is not the best of pictures but I did have to fit ten different books into it.  Here are the names if you can’t read the titles:

  • Stork by Wendy Delsol
  • Frost by Wendy Delsol
  • Flock by Wendy Delsol
  • Evermore by Alyson Noël
  • Blue Moon by Alyson Noël
  • Caesar’s Women by Colleen McCullough
  • The Wise Woman’s Tale by Phillipa Bowers
  • Daughters of the Nile by Stephanie Dray
  • Crewel by Gennifer Albin
  • Altered by Gennifer Albin

As I mentioned before, my local bookstore is going out of business.  So I’ve been stocking up and you may notice that I bought way more books than I usually do.  This is because my last trip was likely the last time I’ll set foot in the store so I dropped around a $100 on books.  I wanted to get the full series of books as much as possible because I know I won’t be buying books for a long time.

Anyway, I read Daughters of the Nile pretty much on the same day I went shopping.  It’s much longer than the other books in the series but I absolutely loved it.  Caesar’s Women is the fourth book in Colleen McCullough’s First Man in Rome series and I can’t wait to start it!  Crewel is the first book in Gennifer Albin’s Crewel World trilogy and I was thoroughly impressed with it.  It was so different from most YA with an entirely unique premise that you can’t help but love it.  I’m now reading Altered and have a hard time putting it down.

As for the Stork trilogy I can honestly just say I picked them up for the covers.  They’re beautiful and interesting but the blurbs intrigued me.  It sounds like Wendy Delsol has a great premise on her hands and I want to see how she carries it out.  Evermore is yet another book that’s floated around in the blogosphere forever and I never got around to it.  So when I saw it and Blue Moon in the used section I couldn’t resist.  I have some high hopes for this one!  The same goes for The Wise Woman’s Tale.

Well, these are some of the things I’m reading.  What are you guys reading lately?  See anything you like here?

      Yeah, it’s unfortunate. The owners were really good people and now I have nowhere to get my books except in a city 2 1/2 hours away. It’s always sad when a local business closes, especially when the economy in the area is booming.

      Thank you! I wrote 3 1/2 reviews tonight and there are some really good reviews coming up this week. I read some pretty good books lately and those translate into (what I think, anyway) are good reviews.

    I’m on a one-track mind lately, deciding on dystopian title for my novel, and I was on and off the fence about the one word title. After seeing your list, I think I’ve decided. I will try to check out a few of your reviews in my “spare” time. : )
