Book Loot (4)

It's that time of month again, bookworms. Instead of snapping pictures of everything and clogging up space, I did a video entry. After all, I have to justify buying a camcorder, right? ^^; Anyway, I talk a little about what drew me to each book in the video, but if you want to skip that, you can click the Goodreads link associated with each book title.

Have you read any of these? Are they on your wish lists? I taped this last week, so I already have a couple of new books. Oops...?

Anyway, sorry I've been MIA this week. Between being sick and working, I haven't had much free time. I was supposed to have yesterday and today off, but wound up working yesterday. Today, I caught up on blog entries, cleaned the house, and finished reading Dark Mirror by M.J. Putney (review to come). I still need to review a couple of things on here, too! And I still need to reply to some emails... Sorry! ^^;; I might not get to it until Monday or Tuesday before work...

Anyway, time for the loot!

  1. AAh I love your video!! You sound adorable :) Almost as adorable as your Peter Rabbit bag, which is an overload of cuteness!

    Thank you for the mention! Waterfall is a debut. She's written adult fic before, but this is her first YA book. It is YA, btw. I hope you love it!

    Your book prices made me smile. I'm a huge bargain hunter. :)

  2. Jodi Picoult is my favorite author, too! Her son is an Egyptology major at Yale, so we're both pursuing the same degree. What is your favorite of her work? For me, it's a tie between The Pact (the first book I ever read by her) and Plain Truth. But I also loved Second Glance.

    You got some awesome books! I just ordered Wither, so I'm waiting for that to be delivered. I am so excited to read that book!

  3. @Small Review:

    Aw, thanks! I always hate the sound of my voice. At least on the camcorder, it doesn't sound so babyish. Everyone at work always makes fun of me when I use the loudspeaker. I swear, I must sound a lot younger than I am! @_@

    Isn't the Peter Rabbit bag adorable? I'm in LURVE! Love at first sight, no less. Had to have it that INSTANT!

    Thanks for confirming that Waterfall is a debut. I wasn't sure of genre because B&N lists it as Juvenile, Religion and not as Teen fiction. I wasn't sure which genre it was! I can't wait to love it! I would have read it last week, but I grabbed Dark Mirror off the shelf (they're right next to each other) and was too lazy to go back over, lol!

    YAY bargain hunters!!!

    @Book Nook:

    Isn't Jodi amazing? Didn't one of her earlier books deal with an excavation? It's been too many years since I read some of her books. I really need to go back and re-read... I didn't know that her son was an Egyptology major. That's really cool! Maybe someday you'll work with him :)

    My top two books by anybody are both by her--My Sister's Keeper and Keeping Faith. Perfect Match and Salem Falls are my other two favorites, but I also love all of your favorites--The Pact, Plain Truth, and Second Glance. I don't know, I love her oldest books the best! Is that just me?

    I can't wait to hear your thoughts on Wither!!!

  4. Ohh! So many books. l still have Mike A. Lancaster's book to read! Hope you enjoy all these =)
