Friday, September 1

Books, books and more books...

So, I ran into the bookstore yesterday to pick up the last of my August book order and guess what???? Some of my September books were already in. Can you hear me squeeeeiiiiiinnnnnng???

August books:

  1. Summer at Willow Lake -- Susan Wiggs
  2. Darcy's Story -- Janet Aylmer, which I think was part of my July order, but the bookstore had a hard time getting it, on backorder for 2 months.
  3. The Privilege of the Sword -- Ellen Kushner

September books:

  1. Lover Awakened -- JR Ward, finished this one before going to sleep last night, I'm going to let it roll around in my head for a couple of days before commenting. But, I will say Butch's story is next, can't wait.
  2. Slave to Sensation -- Nalini Singh, this one's up next.
  3. To Rescue a Rogue -- Jo Beverley
  4. His Mistress By Morning -- Elizabeth Boyle
  5. Everything's Coming Up Rosie -- Kasey Michaels.

Also picked up the October issue of RT. Now, I'm officially broke and back on a budget, our school tax bill arrived yesterday--went up almost 8%, we weren't expecting that.

Have a great day, and happy reading, I know my reading will be very happy!!

Damn you woman-making us wait a few days for what you think of Lover Awakened. GRR! Just kidding. I went to the bookstore yesterday, hoping they put it out early-they didn't. :P

Have a nice long weekend with all your new books.

Ames, go in and complain, if my bookstore had it, it must be real close to or past the street date.

Ugh. I am jealous, too, of your Ward find. I have Darcy's Story to read too!

Tara Marie said...

Jane, is it possible my friend was able to get the Ward before the street date? She orders from Ingram and was complaining that Wal*Mart never waits for street dates and Ingram is incredibly careful about not releasing books early.

I completely forgot about Darcy's Story, it's been a while since I ordered it. We'll have to compare notes after reading.

Love that sepia picture.

Yeah. The street date is Sept. 5th. My Wal-mart doesn't have it and neither did Target, Walgreens, or Wal-Mart. So sad for me.

The sepia picture is my husband's maternal grandfather (whom he resembles closely). He hangs over our fireplace mantle and I thought it would be the perfect photo for me.

I'm so envious! I WANT LOVER AWAKENED NOW!!!

And I can't wait to hear what you think of Slave to Sensation!
