Yay! Arrived home to a big box full of books: not-very-late Christmas gifts from my in-laws. Husband’s mother is the head librarian in her small town, so score!!! (Er, by which I mean she can purchase books at a discount, not that she sends us the library’s copies. LOL.) Husband had a bunch of straight fantasy books, and I received the following:
Magic’s Child by Justine Larbalestier
Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr
Claimed by Shadow by Karen Chance
Magic Bites by Ilona Andrews
Kitty Takes a Holiday by Carrie Vaughn
Extras by Scott Westerfeld
Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
For a Few Demons More by Kim Harrison(paperback version)(blah…I made this list before husband decided to go out and buy this in hardback…so now it’s a redundant copy…I will have to see if I can either exchange it somewhere here, or maybe see if someone wants to do a book trade)
Cursor’s Fury by Jim Butcher
*happy sigh* I dove into Magic’s Child already because it’s the third in the trilogy and the cover is SOOOO pretty and I can’t wait to finish it. *pets* These books came at the PERFECT time because my TBR pile was very lean and I was going to have to scrounge to either find a book overlooked and not read before, or re-read something loved but old!
Today at work = stress times ten. Ugh. I’d go into details but…enh. Just hope it gets better soon…Feeling stupid is not fun.
Planning to get more words written on RHF this weekend. I would love to get closer to wrapping this puppy up!!! Then I can start the query-go-round again. Heh.
