Being sick at home with pharyngitis – the weirdest kind of ill I've been in a while – leads to boredom. Boredom leads to browsing. Browsing leads me straight to Bookdepository.com. And we all know how that ends. 3 new books should be heading my way soon!
Charlaine Harris – Deadlocked (I seriously just made a typo and wrote 'Dreadlocked')
Had to have it. I've read every Sookie Stackhouse novel so far (I haven't reviewed the last couple of books yet) and am committed to it all the way to the – soon to come, with book 13 – end. I guess I can go ahead and say I was somewhat let down by Sookie Stackhouse book 11, and will read book 12 with the hopes that it will be better than its predecessor.
George R.R. Martin – A Clash of Kings (A Song of Fire and Ice 2)
I wanted the Sookie book, and I'm not one to buy just the one. So I had to carefully decide on one or two extra books. I haven't read A Game of Thrones, which I purchased last month, yet, but I plan to after I finish Steinbeck's East of Eden (which I will review when I'm done; I can't wait!). I felt it would be a good idea to have the second book handy just in case I do feel like continuing on with the series immediately, even though this isn't my direct plan. (I wish to savor this series.)
Rachel Cohn & David Levithan – Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist
As a music lover, I couldn't resist this book, which sounds like the cutest thing ever. It's teen romance, live music, mix tapes (!!!)… In that sense it reminds me of The Perks of Being a Wallflower.
The book I ordered is the movie tie-in, and it should also include a map of Manhattan with the places Nick and Norah visit during their adventurous night together. Should be fun to revisit New York in this manner.
What books have you been adding to your bookcase recently?
