I bought the whole bookstore

I hope you all enjoyed whatever holiday it is you celebrated.  I'm still working hard under the ever looming threat of deadline, so I'll be popping up occasionally to check in.  Later on this week, I'll be posting my favorites of 2010.  But today I just wanted to share all the bookish goodness I got (and got myself) for Christmas.

House of Dark Shadows by Robert Liparulo
The Agency: A Spy in the House by YS Lee
Bruiser by Neal Shusterman
The Curse of the Wendigo by Rick Yancey
Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card
The Enemy by Charlie Higson
Everlost by Neal Shusterman
The Healting Wars: Book 1: The Shifter by Janice Hardy
Hold Me Closer, Necromancer by Lish McBride (I bought this one based on the strength of the title alone).
I'll Get There. It Better Be Worth the Trip by John Donovan
Lockdown by Alexander Gordon Smith
Minder by Kate Kaynak
Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro
Rot & Ruin by Jonathan Maberry
The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson
Draw the Dark by Ilsa Bick
Ever After Ever by Jordan Sonnenblick

So tell me:  What books did YOU buy?  Which ones are you eagerly awaiting?  I'm currently in the middle of both |-1| by Steve Brezenoff and How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff (both of which are amazingly brilliant) and next up is The Freak Observer by Blythe Woolston.

  1. Hey Shaun, I hope you enjoy MINDER! I'm adding DEATHDAY LETTER to my TBR list. Take care, and Happy New Year! - Kate

    BTW, my verification word is "undo." Hmm... what is Google trying to tell me?


Keep it clean, keep it classy, and jokes are always appreciated.
