Recent Bookish Acquisitions

Friday, February 5, 2016
I have been doing pretty well at not buying new books this year. I am holding myself to a "read-five-buy-one" policy and so far, it's working. That said, I do have new books on my shelves thanks to generous friends and publishers.


From the lovely Angie at Lady Knight Reads:

The entire Wintercraft (Shadowcry, Blackwatch, & Winterveil) series because I happened to mention I was interested in trying them. Super sweet and I am going to try to get through at least two of these before I meet her at BEA!

From MacMillan:

Tiny Night Fury was not included sry

The Square Root of Summer by Harriet Reuter Hapgood
The Gilded Cage by Lucinda Gray
100 Days by Nicole McInnes
Before We Go Extinct by Karen Rivers
Unscripted Joss Byrd by Lygia Day Penaflor
A Week of Mondays by Jessica Brody
Thank you, Macmillan!

For  Book Tours:

In the Land of Armadillos by Helen Maryles Shankman (Thanks to HMS and publishers!)

The Wild Orchid by Sharon Biggs Waller

Staid, responsible Elodie Buchanan is the eldest of ten sisters living in a small English market town in 1861. The girls' father is a plant hunter, usually off adventuring through the jungles of China.

Then disaster strikes: Mr. Buchanan fails to collect an extremely rare and valuable orchid, meaning that he will be thrown into debtors' prison and the girls will be sent to the orphanage or the poorhouse. Elodie's father has one last chance to return to China, find the orchid, and save the family—and this time, thanks to an unforeseen twist of fate, Elodie is going with him. Elodie has never before left her village, but what starts as fear turns to wonder as she adapts to seafaring life aboard the tea clipper The Osprey, and later to the new sights, dangers, and romance of China.

But even if she can find the orchid, how can she find herself now that staid, responsible Elodie has seen how much the world has to offer?


 She’s about to make a deal with the college bad boy...

Hannah Wells has finally found someone who turns her on. But while she might be confident in every other area of her life, she’s carting around a full set of baggage when it comes to sex and seduction. If she wants to get her crush’s attention, she’ll have to step out of her comfort zone and make him take notice…even if it means tutoring the annoying, childish, cocky captain of the hockey team in exchange for a pretend date.

...and it’s going to be oh so good.

All Garrett Graham has ever wanted is to play professional hockey after graduation, but his plummeting GPA is threatening everything he’s worked so hard for. If helping a sarcastic brunette make another guy jealous will help him secure his position on the team, he’s all for it. But when one unexpected kiss leads to the wildest sex of both their lives, it doesn’t take long for Garrett to realize that pretend isn’t going to cut it. Now he just has to convince Hannah that the man she wants looks a lot like him.

I bought The Deal by Elle Kennedy because of Morgan from Gone With the Word's review and general enthusing about it. She picks such excllent books that I trusted her advice when I decided to try NA not by people named Dahlia Adler.

That's pretty much it for me so far! I'm sure I'll be back before March with some new books to share my excitement about....
