You guys, I want a bit crazy, spending my money like it was monopoly money this week. But okay, there was this signing on Sunday and it was at the most YA friendly indie store I have ever been to/go to and of course I could not stop myself from buying books. On the other hand, rather than beat myself up over it, I am going to feel proud that I spent my hard earned money to support authors and book stores. In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren as always.
Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein – You guys. I want this book to hug and press into the hands of all my friends and to be able to whip off the shelf whenever I am feeling the urge to read about friendship and want my heart wrenched. God. I love Code Name Verity and even though I got an egalley from Netgalley I absolutely have to have a physical copy of this book on my shelves.
Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers – Friends, this book is also one that I had as an egalley from Netgalley and NEED on my shelves. It is one of my favorite books so far in 2012 and again, I want to support the author and also? I want enough copies to sell so LaFevers can continue the series, also the book just looks totally badass all finished and stuff.
From The Signing:
Note: I am only going to list the books I purchased for myself to keep and not the ones I bought to giveaway as that will be shown in my recap post.
The Demon’s Lexicon by Sarah Rees Brennan – Friends, both The Book Smugglers and Angieville are fans of this series and that is enough for me to buy all three books.
The Demon’s Covenant by Sarah Rees Brennan – Again, I am SO ready for demons! YAY DEMONS!
The Demon’s Surrender by Sarah Rees Brennan – I won’t even pretend that I am not excited about having a complete trilogy in my hands.
City Of Bones by Cassandra Clare – I’ve read this, and did not love it, but whatever I am more than happy to have a signed copy on my shelf.
City Of Ashes by Cassandra Clare – I am looking forward to reading this and will keep an open mind even though I already know about the whole Clary/Jace big reveal thing.
City Of Glass by Cassandra Clare – Again, looking forward to this.
City Of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare – I love the pretty cover.
City Of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare – Peeps, I like the blue and white spine. I AM SO SHALLOW I KNOW.
Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare – I really liked this book a whole LOT more than I liked City Of Bones, so yes I was thrilled to finally buy my own copy at the signing.
Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare – I am looking forward to continuing the trilogy and reading this. TEAM JEM!
White Cat by Holly Black – Friends, I love magic and the mob and capers and I have heard PLENTY of good things about this trilogy, so yeah I am down.
Red Glove by Holly Black – Again, yay for having the next book in a series immediately available after finish.
Black Heart by Holly Black – Seriously, I LOVE these cover makeovers, I am not even going to lie. So GORGEOUS.
Zombies Vs. Unicorns edited by Justine Larbaleister and Holly Black – So, I’ve reviewed a few of the short stories from this anthology, now I have an actual copy that I purchased that I am more than excited to show off on my shelves. AND IT IS SIGNED. YEAHHHH BUDDY.
Speechless by Hannah Harrington (Netgalley) – I requested this one on Netgalley because I think the concept, about a girl staying silent because she leaked someone’s secret is intriguing. Also, sometimes I just love a good contemporary read.
Live Through This by Mindi Scott (Unsolicited) – I have never read a Mindi Scott book before, but the summary is about a girl with secrets and traumatization from abuse and it seems really relevant to my job so this could be a book that I read and review for work newsletter as well. I am definitely glad this little surprise showed up.
Witch World by Christopher Pike (Unsolicited) – I have no idea what this is about besides witches and you guys combined with the red cover, that’s all I need to know to be super EXCITED about this book.
