Books I bought:
It’s very unlikely that you remember, but last week I mentioned that a genuinely cheap Australian book store was re-opening. That never happened. I’m one of those people was too excited for it and they had a little countdown on their home page going. It got to the end of the count down and nothing happened. That meant an “oh.” moment followed. But there is another countdown saying it will be reopening the online store on the 28th so let’s hope!
Four books that I ordered from Harlequin Australia came and two of them haven’t had the best of reviews but I thought they sounded good. There is one sequel there, but I don’t have the first book. I love Julie Kagawa and I loved the series it’s a spinoff of, so I couldn’t resist. They had a buy two get one free deal so I picked up the Aussie edition of Crash into You to match my other editions, even though I one the US hardback from Julie Kagawa.
- Countdown by Michelle Rowen
- Waterfell by Amalie Howard
- The Iron Traitor by Julie Kagawa
- Crash into You by Katie McGarry
My goodness. I just realised I got no review books. A round of applause for my restraint please.
Something must have happened to upset my reading. I just couldn’t be bothered!
- The Witches Brew by Heidi R. Kling
- Scent of Magic by Maria V. Snyder
- The Wobbit by The Harvard Lampoon
- Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter
To be read:
It’s the last week of January this year and in February for the Jumble Your Genres Reading Challenge, the genre is contemporary, so I’ll be concentrating mostly on that. January’s genre was YA by the way, so that was pretty easy. I’m pretty sure Saturday is the first day of Feb, so I’ll include two contemporary books. I’m hoping to get to:
- Teardrop by Lauren Kate
- The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black
- The Fault in Our Stars by John Green (finally)
- How I got Skinny, Famous and Fell madly in love by Ken Baker
- Running on Empty by Colette Ballard
- Entice by Erica Crouch
- City of Bones by Cassandra Clare (reread)
