I guarantee that your TBR pile will grow when you see all the wonderful books everyone gets. You will discover lots of great blogs and lots of books that you won't be able to live without.
I am trying to be on a book buying ban for the month of February. And I was pretty successful at not buying books this week. However, I need to rethink and restate my goal. My real goal is to whittle down the TBR stack. As you can see by the number of books below, week 1 was a massive failure.
I got Primal which is an anthology including a Lora Leigh story and The Perfect Play by Jaci Burton. I am a big fan of Lora Leigh's work and I love romances with professional athletes as the heroes. I had pre-ordered both of these books long before my book buying ban began.
I bought Unseen by Rachel Caine because it is the third in the Outcast Season series. I have read book 1 and have book 2 on my Kindle. This one was pre-ordered well in advance of my book buying ban too.
I also bought the ebook version of In Fire Forged: Worlds of Honor #5 from Baen Books. I really like the Honor Harrington series of space operas and wanted to read these side stories. This one just squeaked by the book buying ban. I got it last Sunday. The ebook was $6.00 as opposed to $14.50 for the print book.
I also added these free books this week.
Love at First Flight by Marie Force
Just Right by Erin Nicholas
Hara's Legacy by Biance D'Arc
Darkness Dawns by Dianne Duvall - This one is now $4.76 but it was free when I pre-ordered it on Jan. 12.
The Greatest Knight by Elizabeth Chadwick
Love, Unexpectedly by Susan Fox. I see that it is $8.79 for the Kindle book today. Can I tell myself that I saved that much money since my price was $0?
I didn't actually buy any books since the beginning of February but you can see how spectacularly I failed at my attempt to whittle down my TBR stack. Maybe I'll do better next week. I plan to give myself a stern talking to!
