Wocket makes an appearance! The real life version of my
little 15 lb. dude up on the banner there cannot be moved when he’s comfy, and so, he gets a cameo today along with my new books. It’s been about three weeks since my last Book Haul post, and I’ve finally accumulated enough to make it worth our while. Largely audiobooks and a lovely trip to the library resulting in:
Fables: Inherit the Wind by Bill Willingham (Library) [Amazon|Goodreads]
Yay! This one finally came in for me, it feels like I’ve been waiting forever. Why didn’t I read Peter and Max while I waited? I’ve got nothing.
Child of the Prophecy by Juliet Marillier (Library) [Amazon|Goodreads]
Between finishing Son of the Shadows and loving Holly’s Seven Days for Sevenwaters, I can’t and won’t wait very long before finishing up the initial trilogy to this series that I already love so much.
Well Witched by Francis Hardinge (Library) [Amazon|Goodreads]
Remember a couple of weeks back when I read and adored The Lost Conspiracy? Well of course I had to ravage my library shelves to see what other Hardinge I could get my hands on before resorting to ILL. This is actually the one book of hers I’ve heard the least about, so I’m kind of excited to go in blind!
House of Many Ways by Diana Wynne Jones (Library) [Amazon|Goodreads]
Kmont had a lovely review of Howl’s Moving Castle this week over at Lurv a la Mode which reminded me how much I love those books, and that I really needed to read more of them–hence the final Ingary book!
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen (Purchased) [Amazon|Goodreads]
After finishing Persuasion last month, it occurred to me that it’s been far too long since I read my favorite Austen, so I picked up a copy for my Kindle.
Nice Girls Don’t Have Fangs by Molly Harper (Purchased) [Amazon|Goodreads]
I really liked Molly Harper’s Naked Werewolf books, and fellow audiobook fan, Jac from For Love & Books spoke so highly of the narrator for Harper’s work that I had to check it out! Already finished this and thoroughly enjoyed it, plan to listen to the rest and will probably write a series review when I’m through.
Carnival of Souls by Melissa Marr (Purchased) [Amazon|Goodreads]
I realize I got a paper copy of this (signed!) back at BEA, but considering James Marsters was narrating the audio, I just had to buy it on release day. Only about halfway through, but so far of course it’s living up to what I’ve come to expect from my beloved Marr.
Harry Potter 3,4,5,7 by J.K Rowling (Library) [Amazon|Goodreads]
I know this seems random, but it’s been way too long since I listened to these on audio (the last couple I never did listen to), so I’m collecting them on my iPod as they become available on Overdrive so I can enjoy them all again shortly!
Highlights with Bunbury
