So here's what I bought.
The highlights of my library shopping (aka awards for most ridiculous purchases)
Takes, Talk and Tomfollery
A Collection of Folklore by Lawana Trout
With gems such as Story in Harlem Slang, the Oklahoma Sissy and Moron Jokes. None of when are very PC anymore. (This book is from 1975)
Clay's Ark by Octavia Bulter
Synopsis from back.
"You made a promise!" he said to Eli. "You said you'd keep her safe!"I also have a few books sitting on a shelf waiting to be read.
"Yes." Eli's coloring looked worse than ever in the cool dimness of the room. His voice was almost too soft to be heard. "I said that." He unclasped his hands and Blake noticed that even they were dripping wet. Diaphoresis, Blake thought. Excessive sweating--symptomatic of what? Emaciation, trembling, bad coloring, now sweating--plus surprising strength, speed and coordination. God knew what else. Symptomatic of what?"
Ultraviolet given to me by the wonderful Forever YA blog.
True Grit sent to me by the lovely lovely Catie from Goodreads.
Goliath bought by me. I can't believe I still haven't finished what is one of my favorite series in recent days. AHHHH.
Then let's not even talk about what's on my Kindle waiting for me. It includes:
Angelfall, Deadly Cool, Withering Tights, Jane Eyre, Unearthly, Shine, etc. Those are just the ones I've bought. There are lots of e-galleys (so many I schedule on a calendar) waiting for me too.
But no, the insanity doesn't stop there. Because it's almost gardening season I checked out 4 (yes 4) books from the library this week.
My actual To Read list that I maintain over on goodreads has 231 books currently on it. There's a reason I don't buy everything on my TBR list. Mainly because I like to be able to pay bills and eat food. Cassi's To Read list.
