I got an interesting variety this week. First, one of my students lent me two books because he knows that I am a big fan of John Flanagan's Ranger's Apprentice series. I have often bemoaned the fact that they are being published in Australia before the US (which is not altogether surprising given that Mr. Flanagan is Australian). His parents bought him books 8 and 9 in the series for Christmas (eBay, I think he said) and he just lent them to me.
Book number 8 is The Kings of Clonmel and book number 9 is Halt's Peril. Naturally, I had to drop everything to read these. My books can wait. I am currently in the middle of The Kings of Clonmel and loving the adventure.
I added these YA books this week:
You Are So Undead to Me by Stacey Jay is the first book in this series. I think I got the second one -- Undead Much -- last week. I am trying to overcome my zombie prejudice by reading these.
Darklight by Lesley Livingston is the sequel to Wondrous Strange which is also sitting in my TBR pile.
The Beauty and the Bully got a glowing review on one of the blogs I read last week when I was checking out other people's IMM posts. Amazon let me get a used but in very good condition copy for a small amount of money. So I added it to my TBR stack.
I added these adult books this week:
Fools Rush In by Janice Thompson also was highly recommended on someone's IMM post last week and was also available for a good price. Reviews say that this one is funny. I am looking forward to getting to it.
Shadow Blade by Seressia Glass is a new paranormal. Since this is the genre I currently love the most, I added it to the stack.
I also added some books to my Kindle this week:
