Black Friday Book Haul

blackFridayBookHaul

So my great Black Friday book buys took forever (ok, it was only 3 weeks but it felt like forever) to get here! But now I can hug them, and love them, and curl up to read them complete with a hot chocolate…in 75F Florida heat. Seriously Florida, did you not get the memo that it’s DECEMBER lol!

I’ve also made a video about this book haul, so feel free to check that out 🙂

I got three books from Amazon, and two from Book Depository in the Black Friday sales. The latter were slightly better discounts, but they took the longest to arrive. I think if you’re in England then Book Depository purchases would ship much quicker than they do to those of us outside of the UK.

theDevilYouKnowThe Devil You Know by Mike Carey

Felix Castor is a freelance exorcist, and London is his stamping ground. It may seem like a good ghostbuster can charge what he likes and enjoy a hell of a lifestyle–but there’s a risk: Sooner or later he’s going to take on a spirit that’s too strong for him. While trying to back out of this ill-conceived career, Castor accepts a seemingly simple ghost-hunting case at a museum in the shadowy heart of London–just to pay the bills, you understand. But what should have been a perfectly straightforward exorcism is rapidly turning into the Who Can Kill Castor First Show, with demons and ghosts all keen to claim the big prize. That’s OK: Castor knows how to deal with the dead. It’s the living who piss him off…

I read another book by Mike Carey (written as M R Carey) called The Girl With All The Gifts, and it was so well written I put his other books on my wishlist right away! I’ve only just got around to buying this one though, but I’m looking forward to reading it.

redQueenRed Queen by Victoria Aveyard

Mare Barrow’s world is divided by blood–those with common, Red blood serve the Silver- blooded elite, who are gifted with superhuman abilities. Mare is a Red, scraping by as a thief in a poor, rural village, until a twist of fate throws her in front of the Silver court. Before the king, princes, and all the nobles, she discovers she has an ability of her own.

To cover up this impossibility, the king forces her to play the role of a lost Silver princess and betroths her to one of his own sons. As Mare is drawn further into the Silver world, she risks everything and uses her new position to help the Scarlet Guard–a growing Red rebellion–even as her heart tugs her in an impossible direction. One wrong move can lead to her death, but in the dangerous game she plays, the only certainty is betrayal.

Red Queen has been doing the rounds on book blogs and it sounds really interesting!

InkAndBoneInk And Bone by Rachel Caine

Ruthless and supremely powerful, the Great Library is now a presence in every major city, governing the flow of knowledge to the masses. Alchemy allows the Library to deliver the content of the greatest works of history instantly—but the personal ownership of books is expressly forbidden.

Jess Brightwell believes in the value of the Library, but the majority of his knowledge comes from illegal books obtained by his family, who are involved in the thriving black market. Jess has been sent to be his family’s spy, but his loyalties are tested in the final months of his training to enter the Library’s service.

When he inadvertently commits heresy by creating a device that could change the world, Jess discovers that those who control the Great Library believe that knowledge is more valuable than any human life—and soon both heretics and books will burn.…

I’ve read other books by Rachel Caine and this sounds great! The cover is also beautiful – it’s the UK cover, so if you’re in the US you might want to order from Book Depository, or find another way for a UK copy – the US cover isn’t as pretty, in my opinion.

nightvaleWelcome To Night Vale by Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor

Located in a nameless desert somewhere in the great American Southwest, Night Vale is a small town where ghosts, angels, aliens, and government conspiracies are all commonplace parts of everyday life. It is here that the lives of two women, with two mysteries, will converge.

Nineteen-year-old Night Vale pawn shop owner Jackie Fierro is given a paper marked “KING CITY” by a mysterious man in a tan jacket holding a deer skin suitcase. Everything about him and his paper unsettles her, especially the fact that she can’t seem to get the paper to leave her hand, and that no one who meets this man can remember anything about him. Jackie is determined to uncover the mystery of King City and the man in the tan jacket before she herself unravels.

Night Vale PTA treasurer Diane Crayton’s son, Josh, is moody and also a shape shifter. And lately Diane’s started to see her son’s father everywhere she goes, looking the same as the day he left years earlier, when they were both teenagers. Josh, looking different every time Diane sees him, shows a stronger and stronger interest in his estranged father, leading to a disaster Diane can see coming, even as she is helpless to prevent it.

Diane’s search to reconnect with her son and Jackie’s search for her former routine life collide as they find themselves coming back to two words: “KING CITY”. It is King City that holds the key to both of their mysteries, and their futures…if they can ever find it.

Amazon | Book Depository

Welcome To Night Vale is also a podcast that I enjoy – if you haven’t heard it and you like podcasts you should definitely check it out. It’s a lot of fun!

wickedAndDivineThe Wicked And The Divine by Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie

Every ninety years, twelve gods incarnate as humans.
They are loved.
They are hated.
In two years, they are dead.

The team behind critically thermonuclear floor-fillers Young Avengers and Phonogram reunite to start a new, ongoing, superhero fantasy with a beautiful, oversized issue. Welcome to The Wicked + The Divine, where gods are the ultimate pop stars and pop stars are the ultimate gods. But remember: just because you’re immortal, doesn’t mean you’re going to live forever.

This is actually my first ever graphic novel purchase! If you’re a noob like me, I’ve been told this is a great one for beginners to delve into. It definitely sounds intriguing, and the graphics are beautiful.

With Christmas and New Year coming up (how did that happen?!) I’m hoping to get a lot of reading done. My TBR shelf is already overflowing and I need to make some space for more books…and more…and more… *maniacal laughter*

Ahem.

As usual I’ll be taking part in Stacking The Shelves, and The Sunday Post – check out some of the other posts to find great reads 🙂

November Book Haul!

TBR04

I’m taking part in NaNoWriMo this year. For those of you who don’t know what that is, it’s an annual writing challenge (National Novel Writing Month) where you write 50k words of a novel/novella/whatever during the month of November. I’ve taken part every so often since 2005 – some years winning, some years failing miserably!

This year I’m a little behind, but on track to win. I hope. What I forgot though is that winning NaNoWriMo means you get to have no life! Hence the lack of blog posts. Sorry! I’ve managed my time a little better now – no forward planning on my part – and now have some blogging time as well as furiously writing NaNoWriMo catch up words.

Also, I made my first ever YouTube video! Well, the first one with me in it and not just the dog or a bunch of cute kittens hehe. It’s a BookTube video of my November book haul, let me know what you think!

On to the books themselves. It’s been a slow book buying month, but I’m really looking forward to reading these three.

DevilWhiteCityThe Devil In The White City by Erik Larson

Erik Larson—author of #1 bestseller In the Garden of Beasts—intertwines the true tale of the 1893 World’s Fair and the cunning serial killer who used the fair to lure his victims to their death. Combining meticulous research with nail-biting storytelling, Erik Larson has crafted a narrative with all the wonder of newly discovered history and the thrills of the best fiction.

Amazon | Book Depository

 

The Devil In The White City is the book for Book Club this month. I’m really intrigued and can’t wait to read it!

MagicBreaksMagic Breaks (Kate Daniels book 7) by Ilona Andrews

As the mate of the Beast Lord, Curran, former mercenary Kate Daniels has more responsibilities than it seems possible to juggle. Not only is she still struggling to keep her investigative business afloat, but she must now deal with the affairs of the Pack, including preparing her people for attack from Roland, a cruel, ancient being with godlike powers.

As Roland’s long shadow looms ever nearer, Kate is called to attend a gathering of leaders from Atlanta’s supernatural factions. When one of the Masters of the Dead is found murdered by a shapeshifter, Kate is given less than twenty-four hours to hunt down the killer. And this time, if she fails, she’ll find herself embroiled in a war that could destroy everything she holds dear…
Amazon | Book Depository

I love Ilona Andrews work, and the Kate Daniels series is just fantastic – the world building alone is amazing. I’m a bit behind on the series so I’m looking forward to catching up with this one.

ScarletScarlet (Lunar Chronicles book 2) by Marissa Meyer

Cinder is back and trying to break out of prison―even though she’ll be the Commonwealth’s most wanted fugitive if she does―in this second installment from Marissa Meyer.

Halfway around the world, Scarlet Benoit’s grandmother is missing. It turns out there are many things Scarlet doesn’t know about her grandmother, or the grave danger she has lived in her whole life. When Scarlet encounters Wolf, a street fighter who may have information as to her grandmother’s whereabouts, she is loath to trust this stranger, but is inexplicably drawn to him, and he to her. As Scarlet and Wolf unravel one mystery, they encounter another when they meet Cinder. Now, all of them must stay one step ahead of the vicious Lunar Queen Levana.
Amazon | Book Depository

I read Cinder (book 1) a while ago and had to take a break from the series – it was good, but frustrating. I really do want to read more though, so I’m giving Scarlet a go and hopefully the frustrations from book one have been taken out of book two.

So that’s my round up this week! As usual I’ll be taking part in Stacking The Shelves, and The Sunday Post – check out some of the other posts to find great reads 🙂

DIY “Built In” Bookshelves

TBR shelf
My TBR pile finally has it’s own shelf.

I have a lot of books. Most of them are still in England (books are heavy to ship!) but I’ve bought quite a few since being in America, and we didn’t have enough bookshelf space for them all!

So I decided to take on a project to build some fake built-in bookshelves, using floating shelves and a structural grid pattern we have in the living room. I was planning to do it all myself, but I ended up enlisting Brian pretty soon after I started. While I was taking the existing shelves off the wall I found metal molly plugs and wasn’t sure how to remove them. Turns out it’s fairly easy, but needs a bit of brute force (or at least these ones did!). You have to twist the outer edge to break it off, then just poke the remaining tube into the wall. Some of them twisted off easily, others were a nightmare. But we got them all done in the end.

Filling the holes was easy, and we sanded the filler flat after it dried. Painting the wall was hard work though, but our own fault. We bought a cheap white paint, and really should have bought a primer and better quality paint. We had to do 4 coats of paint to cover the blue! Lesson learned. We were both really happy with how it turned out though.

bookshelves02
Finally done after four coats of paint!

Next we sanded down the floating shelves, then used a spray primer and paint to give two coats of glossy white. I’m not sure if I’d use spray paint again. It has a nice finish, but I think we would have had better coverage with less paint if we’d used normal furniture paint. I’m not sure, but I’ll try it for whatever the next project will be.

bookshelves03

We need 6 shelves and only have 4 so far. It’s a work in progress, the other two shelves will be bought, painted and hung in a couple of weeks. And the cupboard doors will be painted, and rehung with new hinges. But we have one side of the “built in” bookshelves finished and looking fantastic!

bookshelves04
Lovely glossy shelves!
bookshelves05
Books! Yay!

bookshelves06

I’ll write another post after it’s all finished. I’m so happy that my books have a proper home now! And we think it’s made the living room look much better than just being all one colour. What do you think?

OneWildeNightOne Wilde Night by Jenn Stark

Tarot-reading artifact hunter Sara Wilde has had her share of tough assignments, but this one just might take the cake. When her newest client hires her to steal a fertility idol from an Amazonian sex-and-death cult, she finds herself south of the equator and shoulder deep in true believers, while Rio de Janeiro gears up for the closing celebrations of Carnival.

Stealing the idol is one thing, however. Keeping it is another.

The arcane black market has drawn a host of cutthroat operatives and Sara’s now in their sights. In a race across one of the most colorful cities in South America on its most famed night of the year, Sara must navigate cunning enemies, backstabbing allies, a fifty-foot wedding cake float and a new, sensually mysterious contact who may be friend or foe… and whose name she’ll never learn if she doesn’t make it to dawn alive.

No matter what the cards predict, it’s going to be One Wilde Night.
Amazon

I’ve already started reading One Wilde Night and I’m enjoying it so far.

FaerieGuardianThe Faerie Guardian by Rachel Morgan

Enter a hidden world of magic, mystery, action and romance …
Seventeen-year-old Violet Fairdale has one job: protect humans from dangerous magical creatures. It’s a job she’s good at—until her latest assignment, a cute human guy who can somehow see through her faerie glamour, follows her into the fae realm. Now she’s broken Guild law and risked her future as the top graduate of her class.

The last thing Vi wants to do is spend any more time with the guy who got her into this mess, but the Guild requires that she return Nate to his home and make him forget everything he’s discovered of the fae realm. Easy, right? Not when you factor in evil faeries, long-lost family members, and inconvenient feelings of the romantic kind. Vi is about to find herself tangled up in a dangerous plot—and it’ll take all her training to get out alive.

insanityInsanity by Cameron Jace

After accidentally killing everyone in her class, Alice Wonder becomes a patient in the Radcliffe Lunatic Asylum. No one doubts her insanity. All but a hookah-smoking professor named Carter Pillar who believes he can prove her sanity by decoding Lewis Carroll’s paintings, photographs, and finding Wonderland’s real whereabouts.

Professor Caterpillar persuades the asylum that Alice can save lives and catch the Wonderland Monsters now reincarnated in modern day criminals. In order to do so, Alice leads a double life: an Oxford university student by day, a mad girl in an asylum by night. The line between sanity and insanity thins when she meets Jack Diamond, an arrogant college student who believes that nonsense is an actual science.
Amazon

Insanity hooked me at “accidentally killing everyone in her class…” lol what a great line! Plus it has an Alice in Wonderland theme, and an awesome cover. Hopefully it will live up to my expectations.

relentlessRelentless by Karen Lynch

Sara Grey’s world shattered ten years ago when her father was brutally murdered. Now at seventeen, she is still haunted by memories of that day and driven by the need to understand why it happened. She lives a life full of secrets and her family and friends have no idea of the supernatural world she is immersed in or of Sara’s own very powerful gift.

In her quest for answers about her father’s death, Sara takes risks that expose her and her friends to danger and puts herself into the sights of a sadistic vampire. On the same fateful night she meets Nikolas, a warrior who turns Sara’s world upside down and is determined to protect her even if it’s the last thing she wants.

Sara’s life starts to spin out of control as she is hunted by an obsessed vampire, learns that her friends have secrets of their own and reels from the truth about her own ancestry. Sara has always been fiercely independent but in order to survive now she must open herself to others, to reveal her deepest secrets. And she must learn to trust the one person capable of breaking down the walls around her.

IgnitedIgnited by Desni Dantone

Seventeen year old Kris Young is on the run from a throng of superhuman golden-eyed freaks hell-bent on seeing her dead, and she doesn’t know why. Good thing she has her guardian angel to protect her…sort of.

Kris is aided by Nathan, the mysterious man that ends up being anything but angelic when he rescues her for the fourth time in fourteen years. Even if the handsome hero illusion is shattered by his harsh treatment of her, he knows how to fight this strange enemy and is determined to keep her safe at all costs.
As the body count rises in their wake, Nathan introduces Kris to a world in which not everyone is human and the battle lines between good and evil are clearly drawn. Kris’s piece in the puzzle is something neither is aware of and, as they uncover the truth, neither is prepared for what they find. Overcoming twists and revelations that shatter both of their lives, they discover that nothing is as it seems and nothing, least of all their hearts, are safe.

MissedPeriodsMissed Periods and Other Grammar Scares by Jenny Baranick

Grammar has finally let its hair down! Unlike uptight grammar books that overwhelm us with every single grammar rule, Missed Periods and Other Grammar Scares is like a bikini: it’s fun, flirty, and covers only the most important bits. Its lessons, which are 100 percent free of complicated grammar jargon, have been carefully selected to include today’s most common, noticeable errors—the ones that confuse our readers or make them wonder if we are, in fact, smarter than a fifth grader. What is the proper use of an apostrophe? When should an ellipsis be used instead of an em dash? Why do we capitalize President Obama but not “the president”? And why is that question mark placed outside of the end quote?

Author Jenny Baranick is an English professor whose students can’t believe she’s actually that into grammar. Upon experiencing the joys of grammar at an early age, raising grammar awareness became Jenny’s raison d’être. By spreading her remarkably user-friendly and hilarious approach to grammar, she hopes everyone will experience the satisfaction of a properly placed comma, a precisely used semicolon, and a correctly deployed en dash.

Missed Periods and Other Grammar Scares shows grammar as it’s never been seen before: uncomplicated, laugh-out-loud funny, and, dare we say, a little risqué.
Amazon | Book Depository

I can’t wait to start reading Missed Periods and Other Grammar Scares! It’s been on my list for a long time, and was finally chosen for book club this month.

That’s my TBR round up this week! I’ll be taking part in Stacking The Shelves, and The Sunday Post – check out some of the other posts to find great reads 🙂

Where did September go? I feel like I’ve blinked and it’s suddenly over. But that does mean Halloween is getting closer – yay!

I’m looking forward to curling up with some hot chocolate and working my way through my TBR pile. I’ve tried to be good and not buy any new books until I’ve at least read some from the pile, but these were free downloads, or gifted. So basically, I found a loophole to my own rule!

christmasSpiritSurvival of the Christmas Spirit by Aimee Horton

“Cooking for nineteen people will be a cinch!” Ever-optimistic Dottie Harris is preparing for the biggest and best Christmas celebration ever, and nothing—not even unexpected guests or running out of gin—will get her down.

But as always, things don’t run smoothly for Dottie, and it’s not long before her two energetic children, hapless husband and a nasty stomach bug wreak havoc on her carefully planned spreadsheets.

Can Dottie throw the perfect family Christmas (without so much as a swig of gin to help her through) or will preparing for the festivities get the best of her? One thing’s for sure: This will be a Christmas to remember!
Amazon | Book Depository

Survival of the Christmas Spirit is currently FREE as an Amazon Kindle download! My friend writes these Dottie Harris books and this is a standalone holiday special.

Amazon

Genesis was a free download. I haven’t read the first two books in the series, but the Amazon page says it works as a stand alone novel so I’ll see how that goes.

BackRoadsBack Roads by Tawni O’Dell

Harley Altmyer should be in college drinking Rolling Rock and chasing girls. He should be freed from his closed-minded, stricken coal town, with its lack of jobs and no sense of humor. Instead, he’s constantly reminded of just how messed up his life is.

With his mother in jail for killing his abusive father, Harley is an orphan with the responsibilities of an adult and the fiery, aggressive libido of a teenager. Just nineteen years old, he’s marooned in the Pennsylvania backwoods caring for his three younger sisters, whose feelings about him range from stifling dependence to loathing. And once he develops an obsession with the sexy, melancholic mother of two living down the road, those Victoria’s Secret catalogs just won’t do the trick anymore. He wants Callie Mercer so badly he fears he will explode. But it’s the family secrets, the lies, and the unspoken truths that light the fuse and erupt into a series of staggering surprises, leaving what’s left of his family in tatters. Through every ordeal, the unforgettable Harley could never know that his endearing humor, his love for his sisters, and his bumbling heroics would redeem them all.
Amazon | Book Depository

You might have heard of this book before – it was part of Oprah’s Book Club in 2000. I was in England back then and that show isn’t big over there, so I hadn’t heard of Back Roads until recently. So how did I hear about it? Well, it’s written by my husband’s cousin! After I found out we had an author in the family, I emailed her right away and she very kindly sent me an autographed copy. It sounds so intriguing, I can’t wait to dive in.

ThroughTheLookingGlassThrough The Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll

In 1872, in reaction to the universal acclaim *Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland* received, Dodgson (aka Lewis Carroll) published this sequel. Nothing is quite what it seems once Alice journeys through the looking-glass, and Dodgson’s wit is infectious as he explores concepts of mirror imagery, time running backward, and strategies of chess-all wrapped up in the exploits of a spirited young girl who parries with the Red Queen, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, and other unlikely characters. In many ways, this sequel has had an even greater impact on today’s pop culture than the first book.
Amazon | Book Depository

Currently FREE as an Amazon Kindle download! Through The Looking Glass is one of my Mom’s favourite books. She read it to me when I was little, but unfortunately I don’t remember much about it. So she sent me my own copy and I can’t wait to read it!

mrMenChristmasMr. Men The Night Before Christmas by Roger Hargreaves

It was the night before Christmas, and all through the land, not a Mr. Man was stirring . . . not even Little Miss Chatterbox! Join the residents of Mr. Men Land on Christmas Eve as they prepare for Santa Claus and Mr. Christmas to arrive. But Little Miss Late (in typical fashion) didn’t send her letter to Santa until just that morning! Will he visit her anyway?
Amazon | Book Depository

Hehehe! This is also from my Mom. The Mr. Men books were a big part of my childhood, and she’s kept the collection going all these years by buying random ones as a “joke” gift if she sees something I don’t have. I’m not going to lie, I’m looking forward to reading this lol!

AnimalVegetableMiracleAnimal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year Of Food Life by Barbara Kingsolver

Author Barbara Kingsolver and her family abandoned the industrial-food pipeline to live a rural life—vowing that, for one year, they’d only buy food raised in their own neighborhood, grow it themselves, or learn to live without it. Part memoir, part journalistic investigation, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle is an enthralling narrative that will open your eyes in a hundred new ways to an old truth: You are what you eat.

LightBetweenOceansThe Light Between Oceans by M. L. Stedman

After four harrowing years on the Western Front, Tom Sherbourne returns to Australia and takes a job as the lighthouse keeper on Janus Rock, nearly half a day’s journey from the coast. To this isolated island, where the supply boat comes once a season, Tom brings a young, bold, and loving wife, Isabel. Years later, after two miscarriages and one stillbirth, the grieving Isabel hears a baby’s cries on the wind. A boat has washed up onshore carrying a dead man and a living baby.

Tom, who keeps meticulous records and whose moral principles have withstood a horrific war, wants to report the man and infant immediately. But Isabel insists the baby is a “gift from God,” and against Tom’s judgment, they claim her as their own and name her Lucy. When she is two, Tom and Isabel return to the mainland and are reminded that there are other people in the world. Their choice has devastated one of them.

WolfGiftThe Wolf Gift by Anne Rice

When Reuben Golding, a young reporter on assignment, arrives at a secluded mansion on a bluff high above the Pacific, it’s at the behest of the home’s enigmatic female owner. She quickly seduces him, but their idyllic night is shattered by violence when the man is inexplicably attacked—bitten—by a beast he cannot see in the rural darkness. It will set in motion a terrifying yet seductive transformation that will propel Reuben into a mysterious new world and raise profound questions. Why has he been given the wolf gift? What is its true nature–good or evil? And are there others out there like him?
Amazon | Book Depository

All of these books are choices from my book club – moving house put me a little behind on the reading schedule! I’ve just finished The Light Between Oceans, and I’ll be reviewing that soon. And next I’m reading The Wolf Gift, because I love that genre!

Animal, Vegetable, Miracle is a book I never would have looked at, but I’m interested to read the author’s story as I’ve been changing over to (almost) all organic food at home. Although I’m not growing it myself – I don’t have green fingers at all!
