Yep, I am on a huge Urban Fantasty/Paranormal Romance kick. Not like I really needed to add any more books to my TBR, but I wouldn't be a true book nerd without an enormous pile of books that I need to read, right? I did begin "Moon Called" the first book of Patricia Briggs' Mercy Thompson series. AWESOME book!

From my favorite thrift store, I bought these books at their 2/ .50 sale!

There is a box in my car of the books I bought but haven't brought them in, these are just the ones I brought in. I spent $10 and that was 40 books! I am not kidding you.... who knows when I will EVER be able to read them.. but that's what retirement is for, right? *Correction, I just realized I posted the "Gathering Storm" by Robert Jordan, that is the incorrect title, it should have been "The Great Hunt". I posted the wrong code. I can't tell which one it is in that mess of codes, so just know I DON'T have "The Gathering Storm"

From the wonderful Danielle at Sourcebooks for review:

From Hatchette Book Group to review:
I am going to be part of the blog tour for Nine Dragons on October 13th. Michael Connelly will be in Scottsdale, AZ at the Poisoned Pen for a signing on that date and I am going to go and getting my copy signed and will post photos, I hope! This one will be my first author signing! Yay!


The really cool part about this book, the author was still in high school when she wrote it. I am only a couple of chapters in, but let me say just from what I have read, Meg Christian has quite a career ahead of her if she continues to write. Also, according to the back of the book, proceeds from the sale go to help the homeless,

  3. Briana- The Duchess will get read some day.......

    Ladystorm- no! This is about a couple of week's worth of books. I haven't done one in about a month, however, I did get about 40 in one book sale :) I haven't take them out of the trunk of my car yet so I don't remember all of the titles. LOL. Right now I am only reading about 1-2 a week since I am in college. When I am not, it depends. My speed has dropped quite a bit. :) Being a book nerd is all about gathering the books you love :)

  4. Wow, you weren't kidding about having a ton of books! And so many good ones too! Loved Norse Code and all of the Kim Harrison books. Patricia Briggs is good as well.
