Yay! I found the time to do a Showcase Sunday this week XD. I really shouldn't be doing these for another 3 months as I have about 60 books sitting on my bookshelf that I have accumulated over the past 6 months and I'm kind of afraid it's going to break under the pressure of all those books... Being a book lover is a not-as-expensive addiction as hard drugs, but it's still costly and takes up a lot of space in your dwelling (ahhh, Under the Never Sky term :).
Warning: I can has bookz syndrome likely to evolve...
These were all for the Pitch Dark Dark Days tour event I attended in Cambridge, MA last week. I was originally only going to have the authors sign their most recent release, but I caved and bought all the other books in the series because I go to like, 2 book events a lifetime.
Mmmm. I will read anything Showalter writes. Even if it was a recipe. It would probably be a recipe for sexy food. This was on sale at Wal-Mart for $5.99, saving me $2 off the regular price. Wal-Mart rocks. Another reason why? They were open on the Saturday after Storm Nemo (stupid name) and had HEAT and ELECTRICITY. It was magical.
(If you haven't checked out YA Book Exchange, do it NOW!)
A while back I had taken a 2012 YA Readers Survey on TeenReads.com and I was entered to win a random book out of 450 books donated by publishers. This was the book I received and it was quite a surprise! The cover really is gorgeous, although Krista over at Nawanda Files reviewed it and I'm not sure how much I'll like it. I did enjoy Black Swan, and this is sort of in the same alley. We'll see!
You know the drill... links to Goodreads for more info! :)
Question: Do you prefer to own hardcovers or paperbacks?
