Sunday Sweets and Some News

This follows The Story Sirens weekly meme, In My Mailbox.
Got some more goodies!!

From Overstock(this is the last of the preorders):

Immortal by Gillian Sheilds
I have been wanting to read this one for the longest time!

From Walmart (where the price of books in my area has apparently gone up!):
Shadow Bound
Shadow Bound by Erin Kellison
I was under the impression that this was a YA fantasy. Apparently it is an adult UF, after reading a little bit of the book and finally the description, I was enlightened.
Rapture Untamed (Feral Warriors, #4)
Rapture Untamed (Feral Warriors, book 4) by Pamela Palmer
I had know idea this book was going to be released, this is one of first PNR series that got me into the genre. The covers keep getting better and better, so thankful for that!

Some News:

So I'll be going to school in the fall this year, and I'm currently seeking employment. So that means that I am going to have to cut down on my book spending. Which is going to be terribly hard, as I've tried cutting down since June! All of those Overstock books were preorders, sadly I've been wanting to buy books like crazy, even with the books coming in the mail.

So for this post,  it's all about sharing the love of the books we buy and recieve for the week, there will  have to be some changes. On the rare occasion that I buy a book, I'll continue Sunday Sweets/In My Mailbox posting. However, what will be taking the place of it will probably be my Books and Babbles posts. Some of you are probably wondering what that is, because I haven't done too much with it. It's like the title proclaims anything and everything for little old me to babble on about, especially book wise.

Don't worry about me running out of things to review. Trust me I have way not enough too many books sitting on my shelves that need to be read.  Let the book buying withdrawals begin!

I totally get this,my cash flow is really low too, so I think I should just start reading what I already own, I mean minus like Mockingjay and Clockwork Angel, and you know the good books that still are coming out soon.

Immortal sounds awesome! Enjoy your new books :)

Kah Woei said...

I like the cover of Immortal you've got. Happy reading!

Caitlin: It's sad when I'm low on cash but my high priority is how I'm going to buy my next book. I've got some emergency gift cards for Borders that I have been saving for an occasion like this. ^_- So if one of my must have authors releases something, I'm read!! I'm sure this will be good for me though, I really need to get caught up on my TBR pile.

Wendy: Indeed, it sounds sweet. Oh, I'll enjoy them!!

Kah Woei: It's so pretty, I think it's the watery look to it. Like the necklace was dropped in a pond. Very titanic!!

I've heard great things about Shadow Bound.

Here is my IMM! Plus, I have a new meme that I'm trying to start: When I'm Not Reading. Hope you can check it out. Enjoy your books!

Missie: Thanks for swinging in. I love your idea, even though that means more blog obsession, then again I'm on so much it can't hurt.

Oh, that's great to hear. I really haven't heard that much about Immortal
