I've acquired a few books in the last couple of weeks that thankfully didn't get sucked into my moving void. My move has put me in very close proximity to a pretty wicked independent bookstore that, HOORAY!, has book events and whatnot, the first of which I'll be attending on the 18th for Fierce Reads so I plan on acquiring even more books that I don't really need but WANT SO BAD. Kind of.
First I bought a couple -
DEJA DEAD by Kathy Reichs
IRON'S PROPHECY by Julie Kagawa
Kathy Reichs actually did a signing at another local bookstore (that I didn't go to but hooray for yet ANOTHER active local indie, thanks AZ) and I've been wanting to read her books for a while. I'm a big fan of Bones so why not give her books a try, right? As for IRON'S PROPHECY I'll pretty much read anything Julie Kagawa right now. Plus the download was .79. I'll take it.
As part of a going away gift -
STAR ISLAND by Carl Hiaasen
Not something I'd actively choose for myself but it sounds like I might be interested in it so I'll give it a try.
From Pyr -
A GUILE OF DRAGONS by James Enge
I think I toggled back and forth about whether to ask for this one for review. Lo and behold I received it anyway and it sounds good so yes, I shall partake.
And finally from the author via Penguin -
BLOOD FEVER by Mari Mancusi
Another author that I'll read pretty much anything they put out. Not to mention I really like this series. Satire is so underrated in YA.
