Poor Waterstones didn't know what hit them when we kept rearranging tables to fit everyone round the same area. Or when someone would hold up a book and there were several excited 'You must read this!'. I think we made up for the chaos left in our wake by buying lots of coffee, food, and a lot of books. I possibly bought the most. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong!
So its not my fault I was there early...so I browsed first. I saw a few books, and since they were the only ones on the shelf I had to pick them up! They included....
Started reading it, fantastic! In similar vein (but quite different to) Princess For Hire by Lindsey Leavitt
Sequel to Princess Plot. Needless to say I didn't start this one!
Having loved his Uglies series, had to try this. Might have picked up 2nd book. Can't find it yet...hoping its in my room and not left behind! Or I might not have picked it up :p
Blue Bloods by Melissa de la Cruz (with the slightly gruesome cover -bite marks are gross and yes I'm covering them up! (might get stickers over them (shock horror....flowers/eeyore...) so it doesn't matter if I haven't turned the book over). Sounds like an awesome series, but as yet don't know if I like them, so wasn't about to buy the whole series. That might happen at a later date.
Now, I like the colouring, but wasn't fond of the cover picture. However, I'd heard very good things about this series, so I picked up book one...
...and then book two (whose cover is cool! (Clothes are good things, ok?) .....
After several hours of talking, I headed back upstairs. I was on a mission. I was determined to buy (and I did)
This, since I loved Evermore.
Then, since I do like the first one, yes I have gone and bought the rest in the series!
And number 4 (didn't buy host - didn't make it to the adult fiction) So do my lover Meme Reader, I need no persuasion now. I may be spending all of tomorrow reading this series (yes, it might be possible to read them all. As yet uncertain (they are medium thick books). It will be attempted.
....saw book 3 of this series so had to pick it up to complete the other two. (See? Clothes = much better)
A very good day! And I also got this through the post (in time for me to read and review for this week's post over at Enduring Romance.
I resisted buying a lot of other books. Didn't have enough hands. And already spent 2 months worth of dvd buying so couldn't justify any more. (yes, there are times when I don't buy anime. Might have to alternate buying books with buying anime (once I'm in July).
Hopefully there will be more meet ups in the future. They might not always entail so many books. But they'll be brilliant fun!
Reviews will be back from Monday onwards. I can read a lot between now and then!
