Bookstore Score of Four

May 12, 2008

Hey everybody,

I went to the book store again last week and picked up a few more new releases to ease the bulge in my wish list. LOL

First up is Playing with Fire (Silver Dragons, Book 1). Katie MacAlister has got to be one of my favorite paranormal and regular chic lit authors. She is hilarious! The second book I had to grab is Gone with the Witch (Triplet Witch Trilogy, Book 2). Anette Blair is yet another very funny author to be sure.

These next two books are ones that I have not read anything by the authors, so am really looking forward to getting to know their style. Both books look really entertaining. Which is a plus in my book (no pun intended). First is 50 Ways to Hex Your Lover by Linda Wisdom. This next book, is completely new to me, it wasn’t even on one of my many wishlists! The Brass Bed by Jennifer Stevenson.

Check these titles out and pick up your copy today so we can read and review them together!

Book Store Score

April 27, 2008

Well, I just got back from Barnes & Noble *groans* and got out of there for just under $55.00 bucks this time. The member card saved us five bills (of the one dollar variety) and some change. So I bet you want to know what you have to look forward to seeing here in the coming weeks for review…. :)

I picked up several NEW releases. Rogue (Werecats, Book 2) by Rachel Vincent. Lady & the Vamp (Immortality Bites, Book 3) by Michelle Rowen. The Accidental Werewolf by Dakota Cassidy. I also found two new (to me) titles that I hadn’t heard of before. Blue Is For Nightmares which is book one of four in the Stacey Brown Series by Laurie Faria Stolarz which I found in the YA (young adult) section. Last but not least, La Vida Vampire by Nancy Haddock.

These books are now a part of the Weird Stuff In My Desk Bookstore. The bookstore is filled with most of the books I have read over the last two years. So, if you want to see what I have been up to since retiring from my last business and what I like to read, please check it out! My preference is to read books that are in a series. I just hate it when the story ends. LOL You may need to know that I am a bit obsessive about my series, so the store is laid out with the books in ORDER of where they fall in each series. There will definitely be more added over the next few weeks. I have read a TON of books. Who knows, maybe I will even get around to reviewing them all. :)

I am pretty backlogged right now on book reviews, so just a peak at what will be coming up in the next couple of weeks. These are books I have already read that need to be reviewed.
