Every few months I get restless, because I run out of books to read. So I buy some more. My husband makes fun of me for it, but he doesn't understand the obsession that drives me to spend his hard earned money. Not that he would ever claim his paychecks as his, we share. Afterwards I get all giddy with excitement to read those purchased goodies, and usually I'm not disappointed with my selection. What is it about reading that makes me this way? I think everyone needs an escape every now and then, reading is mine. Here is a list of said goodies I got this time around:

Paranormalcy along with the sequel, Supernaturally- very enthused about these two because I've heard such wonderful things about Paranormalcy and I also discovered Kiersten White's blog and she seems like a really cool chick.

Incarceron and Sapphique by Catherine Fisher: I've been debating about this series for a while, I've read reviews but was still on the fence, but I decided to take a chance. The plot sounds unique and it's always nice to find a book that's a little different from the rest of the pile.

Anna and French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins: Okay, I've heard many wonderful things about this book. I'm estatic to read it for myself.

Sirensong: This is the last book to the Faerie Walker series by Jenna Black. I own the previous two and really enjoyed them, I also got my sister into them. It's such a cool take on the whole fairy mythology which, i admit, I'm sort of obsessed with. I can't wait to see how it all ends.

Reckless: This is by Cornelia Funke, and I'm ashamed to say the first book I'll read by her. The reason I've stayed away is because I was intimidated by this great woman who is kind of a hero in the fantasy fiction realm. But I am over the fear and ready to finally read her printed word.

Gracling by Kristin Cashore: Another book that I've been putting off, but has kept popping up in my mind.

What Happened to Goodbye by Sarah Dessen: I have loved Sarah Dessen since high school, I enjoy all of her books and writing style. She is awesome. I encourage all who haven't read any of her work to get out there and pick up one of her books. She's so cool, and I read her blog religously and we both share a common addiction: television.

Haven by Kristi Cook: I think this one came out a relatively short amount of time ago, but it intrigued me. I don't know much about the author, and sometimes that's a good thing.

The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff: This I bought from the recommendation of a favorite author of mine. Maggie Stiefvater, hope it doesn't disappoint. The whole changling mythology is also one that interests me.

The Iron Witch by Karen Mahoney: What can I say, I love me some some fey. I didn't mean for that to rhyme.

Hourglass by Myra McEntire: Another book with great buzz that I couldn't resist.

I also preordered 'You Against Me' by Jenny Downham and 'Vanish' The sequel to 'Firelight' by Sophie Jordan. A few months back I also ordered 'Bloodlines' by Richelle Mead which takes place in the same universe as the Vampire Academy books- I loved that series and have high hopes for this new one.

Okay, that's all...for now. I'll write about my impressions as I go along, if I remember to... I'm so excited to READ!

  1. I'm with you on the sequel love. Once I've invested in good characters I love to go through more than one adventure with them. I just downloaded HOURGLASS to my Kindle. Thanks for stopping by my blog.
