Again, I’ve spent a little over $20 on books in the past two days. Granted I could spend $20 on just one book, the point is, I don’t need more books at the current. But, they were on sale… so that makes it okay, right?
These first three books were actually on the buy 2 get 1 free shelf at Books-a-million, so I’m happy with this buy. That’s why I don’t usually go to Books-a-Million, waste tons of money. Anyway! I’d been waiting to buy A Countess Below Stairs by Eva Ibbotson. Then I also found two books I never knew existed: Ingledove by Marly Youmans and Slacker Girl by Alexander Koslow. The first is about twins whose mother dies and their town is flooded. They go to visit her grave and find a new inscription that reads “A daughter of Adantis.” This leads them into a magical world and Ingledove must find a mysterious man and use all her strength to save her brother. Just my style. The second is actually nothing resembling my usual style. It’s obvious Chick-lit. It made a Breakfast at Tiffany’s reference and my heart was won.
The red on in this picture, The Juliet Club by Suzanne Harper, was also on sale at Books-a-million. It, of course, intrigued my Shakespeare loving mind and I really can’t wait to read it. It’s about a girl who vows to never love again. She has a strong adoration of Shakespeare and gets to go to Verona to study. In Verona the other Scholars and the city make her question that vow. It’s very Teen Chick-lit-y, but I love Shakespeare, so I couldn’t pass it up. The other book here is another of my most vivid loves: Tea! 20,000 Secrets of Tea by Victoria Zak seems a promising cookbook of sorts that discusses not only delicious tea, but the health benefits of the various herbs. Prepare for many a review.
Aside from my shopping news, I haven’t much else to say in this post. I do think I’ll start some of my bookish memes from my old blog again. I enjoy sharing my books. I’m also going to be looking for other memes as well. Try to post a meme at least 4 days out of the week (only two bookish memes, I promise.)
Are there any memes you particularly like, to participate or just to read? Let me know in the comments! ❤
