Recent Acquisitions

I've glutted myself with new books in the last week! How exciting! Eight, count 'em EIGHT, new books arrived in the mail or walked in the door with me since last Sunday. Most of them were thanks to Christmas gift cards that I'm just now getting around to spending. One was a Mooch.

So what did I get?

-Apocalypse Happens, by Lori Handeland (third in the paranormal romance series The Phoenix Chronicles. I got the first one from LibraryThing and I flew through it. Reading the second one now...fourth one comes out in April!)

-Warlock of the Witch World, by Andre Norton (I'm collecting this series from the 60' the covers!)

-Murder at Monticello, by Rita Mae Brown (Also collecting this series about a mystery-solving cat. Haven't read any of them yet, but that doesn't stop me from buying them!)

-Marie, Dancing, by Carolyn Meyer (YA novel about the subject of Degas' famous sculpture "Little Dancer Aged Fourteen")

-Stranger Things Happen, Kelly Link (weird, gothic-horror, sci-fi-esque short stories)

-A Spell of Winter by Helen Dunmore (winner of the very first Orange Prize!)

-The Forge, by T.S. Stribling (first in a trilogy about the Civil War-torn South)

-The Essential Tales of Chekhov, edited by Richard Ford (self-explanatory, I think. Trying to read more Russian lit, with Doctor Zhivago last year and now this book)

These books will join the hundred others on my shelves, to be read only God knows when. But it makes me all squirmy and happy to have had such a windfall this week. LOVE LOVE LOVE getting new books!
