How are you doing? How's your week-end going? Well mine sure is relax :) I'm trying my best not to cheat, but it's seriously hard. The dizziness is still not gone. Is it better? Hard to tell, but it's not worst, so that's something right? I read that sometimes the symptoms can last a few weeks after the injury and that's what I think is happening. It'll probably be just like my vertigo, just disappear one day. But I'm being careful. It helps that I work right next to the hospital emergency and also, I have an appointment with my family doctor next week. Plus this week is not so busy... So we'll see.
In the meantime, here are the books that I got, but cannot read :(
Here are my pre-orders of the week:
The Perfect Hope by Nora Roberts - It's Nora Roberts, what can I say LOL. Got to get it. I admit this is not Ms Roberts' best trilogy, but it's still enjoyable. Curious to see how the relationship between Hope and Ryder will develop :)
Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet by Darynda Jones - Ms Jones was my find last year. I really enjoy her style of writing as well as the series. I'm curious to see what will happen to Charley and Reyes! I also find the cover concept interesting :)
Lord's Fall by Thea Harrison - Well I got the print and the audiobook. I figured if I couldn't read, I could at least listen... Hmmmm. I'm not a huge fan of The Elders Race series, but like many readers, I was curious to see Ms Harrison coming back to Pia and Dragos.
I've been waiting for a while for the bookstore to have a promotion... and they finally did :) They were promoting holidays shopping, so from Thursday to Sunday, they have those "Reveal the Magic" cards where you can win 10% to 100% off your purchase. Plus, 25 lucky customers at each bookstore would get something special on Thursday evening... which turned out to be 5$ off your purchase. Yep, I was one of those 25 lucky customers :) Woohooo. So here is what I got:
Lord of Temptation by Lorraine Heath - I've really enjoyed Ms Heath's last series and I love the premises of this one. I'm kind of looking forward to reading this one, but at the same time, I have some apprehensions because of the reviews I've read. Also, haven't really been in the mood for historical romances... that's why I've held off so long before buying it.
Midnight's Daughter, Death's Mistress and Fury's Kiss by Karen Chance - This is a spin-off series from Ms Chance`s popular Cassie Palmer series. Li is a huge fan of Ms Chance and I tried the first Cassie Palmer book, but meh. Also, not a huge fan of love triangle. However, I gotta say, this spin-off series sounded interesting based on the blurb :) I mean, the first book, Midnight's Daughter, is about Dory, a dhampir, taking down her uncle... Dracula. Anyway, long story short, I decided to give this series a go because I was in the mood for some urban fantasy. I quite enjoyed all three books and therefore, decided to buy them :)
With the promotion and the 5$ off, it was as if I bought 3 books and got the 4th free :) So good shopping for me. I'm debating whether to return today or not. There are some books that I want, but I don't really need right this moment. So perhaps I can still wait for a real "Buy 3, get the 4th free" instead of getting only 20% off the books?
What about you? What good books did you get this week?
