How's your week-end going? :) Mine is excellent so far :) My mom is celebrating her 60th birthday and we're all having fun :) She had friends over yesterday and today, we're taking her out :) Also, her little brother and his wife are here with us :) But best of all, we were able to surprise her with her birthday gift!! Woohoo!! The truth is, my sister and I are really not subtle when buying gifts. We'd rather buy something that the person really likes or really wants and ruin the surprise, than surprising them with something so-so. But this time, we succeeded on both fronts!! Woohoo :)
I've been a very good girl this whole week - not going to the bookstore at all... Despite starting a reading slump ^_^; I know, I know. I have so many books, but nothing is calling to me!! Seriously though, I think one of the reasons is that I read too many historicals in July ^_^; Anyway, so I didn't go to the bookstore... but this morning, while my parents were at the temple and my sister at work, I had to entertain my uncle and aunt... and we went shopping and so I stopped at Indigo. Now, it's been a constant debate the whole week, because some of the bookstores have received the books that I wanted... but not James'. I asked James to order copies for me and put it aside... but almost every bookstores have received their stock... and I wonder if James will, since they're closing in September... In the end, I bought the two books I wanted...
Here they are:
Basilisk by Rob Thurman - I have become a huge fan of Rob Thurman. Love, love her books and the bromance in them. I'm so happy we get a sequel to Chimera... Can't wait to see how Michael has grown up!! I decided to go ahead and buy Basilisk because the last Thurman release, Blackout, didn't make it to James' bookstore, despite him ordering it... so I'm thinking there's a chance the same thing will happen. Now, the most difficult is to not read the excerpt of the next Cal Leandros book Doubletake at the end of the book!
Storm's Heart by Thea Harrison - Sigh, still haven't reviewed Dragon Bound. Ah well. LOL. I enjoyed Dragon Bound - not as much as everyone else it seems, but I liked it. I'm hoping I'll enjoy Storm's Heart even more. Also, really liked Tricks... and this might get me out of my funk! I was going to be a good girl though and wait till James' bookstore get it... but then, when I checked the stores' inventory... turns out that Indigo was the only bookstore easily accessible for me who still had a copy ^_^; So I decided not to take a chance...
Voila, my two new books :) What about you? What did you get? Anything really good?
