So, I realize I have a problem - a book buying one. And I think I need therapy.. and a ban. But, I do go to book signings.. so I'm going to have to buy ONE book for each of those. Yes, one. I've decided. So, hopefully my "Bought" list will keep shrinking. So, yes, I will be justifying every book bought with either - Gift Card used, or Book Signing attended. :) And I need you guys to keep me accountable.


  1. Awesome haul this week - LOL I know what you mean about a serious problem I got it too! :)

  2. I seem to have the same book buying problem. I also wish that I could have attended the Children's Lit Conference because it looks like some excellent authors were there.

    Great haul! I hope you enjoy all the books you bought. I loved the ones by Tamora Pierce. Happy reading!

  3. Great books. I need to stop buying so many too. So many great ones are coming out right now though. Plus there are so many great ones out there already.

  4. Oh, wow! You got a lot of great books! Hope you enjoy them all :)

  5. You had a great week! I just posted my review of Dark Life & I really enjoyed it :o) I have the same problem as you do with buying books. I'm trying to keep my buying under control but there are so many books I want that it's hard LOL

  6. Wow, what a variety! I bought two new books this week and I thought that I was a big spender! Haha, hope you enjoy all your new books.

  7. Love the layout of your blog! Great list! Stumbled across your blog from The Story Siren & am now following! Happy reading!

  8. I go to three different libraries to get books in an effort to keep myself from buying. I still get those impulse purchases-even at the grocery store I hit the book section. Thankfully they have a very small selection which helps. I guess it is good to support the book industry.

    You have a lot of great books to read, especially The Dead Tossed Waves and Before I Fall. I hope you enjoy reading all of your books and I look forward to your reviews.

  9. Wow. That is A LOT of new reads! I have a serious book buying problem too. I've struggled all day not to place an order with Amazon (my credit card is right next to my mouse too. I'm SO ready!).

    I recently finally found an Alice in Wonderland book that came with Through The Looking Glass. Now to find the 3rd book!

    My mailbox is here!

  10. Oh my wow woman! You're going to need a bigger house...

  11. Holy... MG!!!!
    Your book stash is ace!=)

    Book buying Problem? Where? I dont see it? hahahaha, from one book buying addict to another=)

    There are so many titles that I dont know what to comment on!

    Enjoy all your books!!! I am so J!!!

  12. Don't try to ban your book buying - it doesn't work! How about a reward system? You can only buy a book if you accomplish a predetermined task. OR you know, you could just buy all the books you want and your house gets to full you can send them to me! ha!
    I know...not helping :)

  13. Wow you have got some amazing titles and soooo many too. Hope you enjoy them all. Have a great week.

  14. You had a fantastic week! Wow! I'm just in awe of all your books! I can't wait to hear your thoughts.

  15. Damnnnnnn you got alot of books. Cool selection though, Enjoy your books. Here'smine

  16. Okay so I have found that my book buying problem can be somewhat alleviated by rewarding myself. My fiance told me if I went 6 months without buying a book (certain exceptions were made) he would give me $50 to buy books at the end of the 6 months. Unfortunately I only made it three and I gotta start all over again, but it's fun to try. (Of course I also have 26 books out of the library so I guess it's how you look at it.)


Leave some love!
