In my Mailbox: Books!

I’m not expecting anymore pre-orders this month, nor am I allowed to order anything outside of these books anyway so I might as well post this now. Today, in my mailbox was:

  • Down a Dark Hall by Lois Duncan
  • The Dead & The Gone (Last Survivors, Book 2) by Susan Beth Pfeffer
  • Rapture (Fallen, Book 4) by Lauren Kate
  • The Walking Dead, Book 3 by Robert Kirkman

Rapture was a pre-order, that in all honesty, I’m not that pumped for. I still haven’t even finished the very short Fallen in Love (Book 3.5) because it totally fails to hold my attention. I’m sure I’ll read it one day, but right now, it’s not a priority. After finishing the last Walking Dead book and the first Last Survivorsbook recently though, I couldn’t resist getting these continuations. But the one I’m the most excited about reading first, honestly, is Down a Dark Hall. It’s one of the very few books I remember reading as a kid (I didn’t read a lot growing up) and it had scared the crap out of me back then. I can’t wait to see what I think about it as an adult. 

I have no idea where I’ll store these books, or the 8 other pre-orders still coming this year for that matter. I have well over 200 books now. I am in desperate need of a larger and/or additional bookshelf. 

I almost forgot, I also go this last week. It's research for Summer Novel. šŸ˜‰

What books are all of you reading or buying these days?

You can tell I’m a bookaholic since 200 books doesn’t sound like a lot to me. XD

I hope you’re enjoying the Element Encyclopedia of Magical Creatures! I have so many post-it tabbies in that thing, haha. The Ghosts & Hauntings encyclopedia in the same series has been pretty inspirational for me as well…. (Rosemary Ellen Guiley’s encyclopedias still are my favorites for research, though!)

200 books feels like a lot to me since I had zero just a few years ago. I’ve built quite the collection in such a short period of time.

I have a bunch of those encyclopedia’s in my wishlist — they just seem like they’ll all be useful at some point in my writing life.

I totally get that. But since I’ve been collecting books since before I could even read…um, yeah, 200 is nothing to me. XD

Those books are definitely useful for writers! I always love to stock up on encyclopedias like that to help me with my own books. You should check out your local Barnes and Noble sometime, since if it’s anything like mine, it will probably have this particular series in the sales section–and if not this series, a bunch of other helpful ones just like it! šŸ™‚
