I am surprised at how well I managed to minimize my spending on books this month. Since I have zero plans to buy any more, I’m posting now because…well, I like to show off. And I have the LSAT tomorrow, so I am a little stressed and didn’t have the mental capacity to write anything more thoughtful. But I also tried to put a smidge more effort into these pictures than usual, and I was pleasantly surprised at the results.
BOOK #1: FOUL IS FAIR
This is an ARC I won from a Goodreads giveaway, and honestly, I’m so excited about it. Especially since I was denied for the title on NetGalley…now I get to review an ARC for it anyway. Muahaha. Be on the lookout for my thoughts on this (though it may be a while–I have a huge stack of fall/winter reads still, and this one doesn’t come out until February.)
BOOK #2: DARKDAWN
What more do I need to say? I’ve talked far too much about this book already. My preordered copy actually arrived damaged, with a tear in the jacket and a totally broken/crumpled corner on the spine, but Barnes and Noble was great and happily exchanged it for a copy in good condition, which is the one I photographed here. Can’t wait to read about my favorite stabby bitch 😊
BOOK #3: CROWN OF CORAL AND PEARL
This one, I was kind of surprised to win, because it wasn’t from Goodreads. On a whim, I entered the Fantastic Flying Book Club giveaway for it, and earlier this week, I got an email asking for my shipping info! Funny story, when it was mailed here, it was in a Harlequin box, since it was published by Inkyard Press (formerly Harlequin Teen). I got a lot of confused looks, including a mental look at myself, when it arrived, because straight-up romances aren’t really my thing, and that’s primarily what Harlequin sells. But then I opened it and all was well with the world. (On a sort-of related note, I’ll be participating in my first-ever FFBC blog tour, for The Memory Thief, in mid-October!)
That’s all for now, folks! Have you read any of these? Got any of them on your TBR? Let me know!
