i'm darkness and light, bubbles and faerie wings.
i am sparkles and glitter, shadows and clouds.
i love purple, and faeries, and books, and music.

One of many reasons I shouldn’t have Book Blogs in my RSS feeds…


Over on Teen Book Review I was intrigued by the book under “Currently Reading”, Violet by Design. When I looked it up I found out it was actually the second book in a series. So I plunked both books into my Wish List over on Amazon.ca.

Little did I know that the hubby* and I would be out near a bookstore today and since I was in desperate need of books to read I went in search of Violet on the Runway. I couldn’t remember the author’s name of course (Melissa Walker) but once I looked up the title I knew right where to go. Apparently I don’t get down to the end of the alphabet in the YA section all that often, because I walked away with not one, but FOUR books.

When I was paying for the books and was asked by the cashier if I had found everything I was looking for, well! I told him I had to put things back because I needed to buy things like groceries so I could eat! Heehee! I found way more than I could possibly have afforded** and have since added MORE to my wishlist, though I was able to remove the Violet on the Runway title. 😉

* Hubby is currently chugging down the Rachel Morgan series by Kim Harrison. He’s on book 5 of 6 and has been reading them since last week!

** Oh, to actually have a library that has English books around… sigh.

[I don’t know what has suddenly started happening with my photos but lately when I resize things they come out all pixilated and crappy, but I haven’t done ANYTHING different than before and it’s driving me crazy. So I would like to apologize for the crappy quality of my photos lately.]

    Stephanie – I hear you! My problem with books is that I HAVE to own them. If I were to find something in a library and loved it, I would need to go out and BUY it right away. I horde my books away like treasure!

    Monkey – Seriously? ANOTHER one? GAH! I honestly don’t remember this one at all. Did yours also have a snowglobe on the cover? Maybe it was just the book mood I was in. Perhaps I was more fantasy/murder moodish then and not angsty young adult-ish? Oops. 😉
