I failed badly! I’m supposed to be in a book buying ban this month since my TBR pile is really getting higher and higher. I thought I’m getting just one or two books but look what I accumulate?! I bought all these from local bookstores in the past few days. All are fictions except for What On Earth Have I Done? which was misplaced in a YA shelves where I found it and since I love reading Fulghum books I decided to bought it too together with the other books.
Firebirds Soaring: An Anthology of Original Speculative Fiction and The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting were two books I bought yesterday together with Passion by Lauren Kate in National Book Store Glorietta 5. Since I already got my own copy of Passion this new hardbound copy will be for giveaway. I personally went to Lauren Kate’s book signing event yesterday and I have this one signed by the author so watch out for the upcoming giveaway here in the next few days.
Firegirl by Tony Abbott actually caught my eye because of its title. It reminds me of Katniss character in The Hunger Games which is tag as “The Girl On Fire”. Obviously this book is not related to Katniss nor The Hunger Games and not even the same genre but I decided to buy it all the same. Finally, at the top of the pile is Ellen Hopkins’ Glass, book two of Crank which I got on sale.
Also, my pre-ordered hardbound copy of Forever arrived on the day of its released with a free shirt included. The shirt is too big for me so I’m thinking of giving it to someone. I also got few ebooks for review which I plan to read first to finish all my reviews for submission. I’m also waiting for nine more books coming from book depository.
