I was doing so well at being healthy this month. But my husband brought the sick with him when he came home last weekend from a trip away. He was seriously ill all week, and my son came home early from school on Wed and stayed home Thurs. It was only a matter of time. I stayed well until Thursday afternoon, when I started to get a sore throat and slight headache. It just got worse from there. Ugh, I hate being sick.
Audible was having a sale on book 1 & 2 of several popular series, and while I only grabbed the first two Mindspace Investigation stories (Clean and Sharp), I’m really happy I did. I then picked up a Kindle freebie (The Iron Locket) as the idea of a Faery and King Arthur mix sounds very unusual. Rounding out my ebook additions are two Netgalley approvals, Lacy Eye and The Forgotten Girls, both of which are 2015 books.
I managed to avoid the library this week, but had two books appear in my mailbox: The Ultra Thin Man and Echopraxia. It took me a while to remember why they were sent to me, but I won them from On Starships and Dragonwings. Yay!
And one last pile of books: my purchases from a local book sale yesterday. Unlike most of the local book sales, this one seemed to have a good mix of books to pick from. At just $1 a book, I grabbed anything that caught me eye. I’ve wanted to start the Stephanie Plum series since I liked the movie (I know, I know), so I grabbed One for the Money. Amaryllis in Blueberry and Night Road were both on my wishlist, so it made total sense to pick them up. I’ve been loving Tudor stories, so The King’s Daughter jumped out at me. Last but not least, I grabbed The Night Angel Trilogy. I really only need book 3 since I’ve read the first two already, but since this was the only option, it was worth getting since it means I can actually finish a series.
