More New Books!

And suddenly I find myself with another stack of new books! How does this happen? This is how:

From Amazon:

The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson... because Ibeeeg and Carl are leading a buddy read and dang, it was too tempting and I just couldn't be left out!

Under the Dome by Stephen King.... because Jenny wants to also do a buddy read and I'm ready to try more Stephen King!

From Ibeeeg:

A Soldier's Wife by Margaret Leroy.... because she thought I needed to read this book so bad that she simply sent it to me! You must go and read her post about it here. Deanna you are the best.... thank you so much!

From Armchair BEA... which I won during the Twitter parties:

The Fox Inheritance by Mary Pearson.... I loved all things I've read by here, so that's a good sign for this one.

All These Things I've Done by Gabrielle Zavin... I loved Elsewhere, excited to try this one.

Ten Rules for Living with my Sister by Ann Martin... this arrived on the day that my girls were driving each other crazy. I thought that was very appropriate. We giggled quite a bit.

A random book in the mail from the publisher (Simon and Schuster):

Michael Vey: The Prisoner of Cell 25 by Richard Paul Evans.... this sounds like something different from what he usually writes, don't you think? I'm intrigued.

Isn't that just a lovely pile of books? It makes me happy. And stressed, because I also need to finish A Crown of Swords and start and finish Middlemarch for book club sometime this summer! And not only that, I seem to be in a slump... because I just don't feel much like reading. This is a problem I better soon fix!


  1. I just about bought WAY OF KINGS at my library's used book sale, since I can't seem to finish it before other people request it at the library. Then, I didn't, figuring I already have WAY too many books on my shelf waiting to be read. Which brings me to UNDER THE DOME. I've had it for awhile now and I STILL haven't gotten to it. *Sigh* So many books, so little time ...

  2. I am so happy to see you are joining in for Way of Kings!

  3. I love it when I get a book out of the blue.

  4. Glad you are joining us for Way of Kings! :)

  5. I want to read The Soldiers Wife.

    Reading slumps are miserable, sorry. We can hold of on Under the Dome until you're ready. I'm so bogged down in Middlemarch it might be awhile any way.
