Blogger Times: Stacking My Shelves

I know today has been a good day to me . . . I added more books to my shelves and it was a large pile.

While I'm still waiting on a few books that I've won/or ordered, I can't show pictures yet but I'm happy to share my new shiny cat toys.

After reading a post by Danny of Bewitched Bookworms where she talks about the Morganville Vampires series by Rachel Caine.

Danny gave some very high points on why we should read the Morganville Vampire series, as for me I was staying away from it because I wanted to read more about other supernatural creatures like Werewolves or people with supernatural abilities. So for the longest time I've choose to not buy any vampire books . . . the only book that counts is The Mortal Instrument: City of Lost Souls, and a few others that had tie-in with vampires.

Embedded image permalinkMy bookstore actually carries the volumes of the Morganville Vampires and two were in the clearance (overstock/publishers lower price) But then my amazing mom found Ghost Town in Pp and HC in clearance as well. But here's the rub . . . the HC was cheaper than the PP, Say What?

I took it as the publishing company had sold HC first then within 3 month period went straight to Pp.

Now you see two are not Rachel Caine's books but in fact Kelley Armstrong's Otherworld series, her first works of books. I had doubts that my store would actually carry her first book "Bitten" but I was in awed to find out that Plume had it reformatted with new covers and I was just dosed with catnip that I could find it. So I will be keeping my eyes out for the next couple books of the Otherworld series by Kelley.







Now the question remains, WHEN WILL I EVER HAVE THE TIME TO READ THEM?
good question . . . christmas break? school break? Summer break? Night read? Gym read? I have no clue, I really should really create a post of my goal for 2014 reads because I sort of have one just not written down on paper (its all in my head)

So I'm off to finish another book and reviews (which I've fallen greatly behind)
