Why I'm Happy Today...
Books. That's why I'm happy. Books.
Thanks to the ever excellent Ames and Nath I found out that a couple of books I mentioned in my previous post were out in the stores early. Blogger buddies rock that way. Thanks guys.
Anyway, big surprise that my local Barnes and Noble only had the Kresley Cole book, DARK NEEDS AT NIGHTS EDGE. Believe me when I tell you I knew that Anne Stuart's book should have been out on the shelves. As Nath pointed in the comments Ms. Stuart's books are released by MIRA Books and you can usually find them early.
But, ooooooh nooooooo... not at my book store. I was really irritated. Really. Irritated. I'd gone to the AS website and read the truly excellent excerpt of FIRE AND ICE and I wanted that book. Now.
But then, dear friends, the wonderful fabulous lovely man I'm married to reminded me it was time to go to our favorite health food grocery store TRADER JOE'S. Why was I so happy and excited? TJ's is only a few miles from my favorite BORDERS store.
I knew Borders would have the AS book shelved because they are just the ab-so-lute best when it comes to getting books out as soon as possible. Talk about an adrenalin rush...whew! As you know, I had all that pent up book buying energy from three weeks of almost no purchases. You can do the math. Money in pocket. Books to buy. Yes, it all
Here's what I got:
FIRE AND ICE by Anne Stuart
LAST WOLF WATCHING by Rhyannon Byrd (3rd in a 'meh series, but I have to finish the series don't I?)
A LADY'S SECRET by Jo Beverley
NIGHTCAP by Kathleen O'Reilly (3rd of series I've been enjoying. I could have gotten the ebook earlier, but I have the other two in print and wanted this one to match them because I'm probably going to keep the series.)
TO TASTE TEMPTATION by Elizabeth Hoyt (May 1st release date. Score!)
FALLEN by Erin McCarthy
PLAYING WITH FIRE by Katie MacAlister (off shoot of Aisling Grey series. This is about the Silver dragons)
BADDEST BAD BOYS anthology with Shannon McKenna, EC Sheedy and Cate Noble
THE COURTESAN'S SECRET by Claudia Dain
So I definitely made up for the rest of the month today. And I'm happy, very, very, happy we had to go grocery shopping.
