Yes, I bought a lot of books recently. No, this doesn't include the 60 or so library books I've had since October. No, I haven't read the majority of them yet even though I've had some since October... This is why I'm on a book diet! Having said that, yesterday I bought something I thought I never would. More on that in the next couple of days though, and I'm fully prepared for all the "You hypocrite!" comments.


  1. What a great collection of books. Personally, I have given up saying that I'll be going on a book diet or trying a book buying ban. I just can't resist adding new books to my stack. I enjoyed Throne of Glass, The Lost Prince, and The Darkest Minds but haven't read any of the rest on your stack. I am eager anticipating the arrival of Etiquette & Espionage though.

    You can check out my new book posts at Inside of a Dog and Ms. Martin Teaches Media. Stop by and see what I got. Happy reading!

  2. Boy did you get a lot of books. I've given up on trying to do a book buying ban. You certainly will be busy with your pile for a while.

  3. so many awesome books!!
    I spotted Under the Never Sky there.. One of my fav 2012 reads.
    Enjoy reading it :)

  4. WOW! So many books! Hope you read fast!!!
