books I got this week.

Friday, June 10, 2011

I'm doing two book haul memes this week again. In My Mailbox, from Kristi from The Story Siren and Bargain Book Bonanza from Baja Greenawalt's Cozy Book Nook.

I am excited about this mainly because I finally went to a bookstore! Granted it was a 35 minute drive but it was so worth it. I could have gotten more, believe me, but I tried to control myself. Maybe next week ;)
My purchases this week were all recommendations from other people, so I can't wait to dig into these.

Feed by Mira Grant - Young Adult/Horror/Thriller/Dystopian? ($3)
And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie - Mystery (my first from her! And only a $1)
Lightning by Dean Koontz - Horror/Thriller ($2)
Intensity by Dean Koontz - Horror/Thriller ($2)
The Lost World by Michael Crichton - Science Fiction/Horror/Thriller ($2)

As you all can see, I have a bit of a theme going on this week - the scare yourself to sleep and get nightmares kind. Hope you all have awesome books this week too. Link up below!

Also, please note I am having a book inspired jewelry giveaway going on right now! Open to US, UK, and Canada. They're lovely. Check it out :)

  1. These seem great books! I've read a lot of Agatha Christie, so I think you'll like her book. I forgot whether I read The Lost World or not (it happens when you read way tons and tons of books). I wonder what you'll think of it. Maybe I will go and read it (again). Enjoy your reading!

  2. And Then There Were None is my favorite Agatha Christie novel although I also love her Poirot mysteries. I could not figure out who the killer was in And Then There Were None and I really liked that. Sometimes I read a mystery and figure out from the beginning who the killer is. I hope you enjoy all of these!

  3. Pepca - I don't think I've forgotten a book I've read.... at least not yet ;)

    Christina T - A lot of people recommended And Then There Were None to me when I asked which Agatha Christie should I read. I'm really excited! I love a good mystery every now and then.

    BookQuoter - Yay.

    Steph - Have you read it yet? And did you like it? I'm reading it right now.

    Juju - Thanks! I'm excited. The synopsis looks SO GOOD!

  9. danya - The cover is awesome, isn't it?

    Marce - Oh good! I have been recommended Koontz so many times I knew I just had to cave in and try his work. I loved Watchers, so I am excited to try the 'highest rated' novels he has :)

    A Story Untold - I am getting creeped out already and I'm not even halfway through the book!

    Jenny - Thanks so much for visiting.

  11. Thanks so much for linking up to BBB! Ooo, you got some good ones. Wonder if you will find Intensity as intense as I did-- it was almost too much!

    Great deals! Is your bookstore a local bookstore or chain? I want to go!

    Melissa - Thanks for recommending that, along with BookQuoter!

    Lesa - Well, as you already know, I do find it intense. I have decided not to read it at night though - I think it's for the best!
