Hoarders, Episode 85: Books and Outdoors

Disclaimer: No books were damaged during this shoot.

I decided to take my books outside.

It was so pretty this morning that I couldn’t resist. It was one of those, the day couldn’t decide whether or not to let the sun come out or let loose a downpour.

(update: the latter happened)
Styxx by Sherrilyn Kenyon is book #23 of her Dark Hunter series. I’m severely behind but have been managing to buy the consequent instalments. This one is massive (823 pages), so I definitely need to invest some time. 

Thornhill by Kathleen Peacock and The Chaos of Stars by Kiersten White. These books are a couple of highly anticipated in my shelves. I hope they’re worth the wait. 

Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein
Hostage [Bodyguard, #1] by Chris Bradford
Projection by Risa Green

Last week, I was able to attend a book signing by Kelley Armstrong. I didn’t get pictures taken, though.  Sorry. But I was able to meet up with Mary Ann of Chapter by Chapter, Kristie of Lost in Ever After and Mel – a fellow book nut. 

Right now, I’m about three quarters into Omens and I think there’s no better way than to read this at this pace (been reading it for a week). It’s wonderful and dark and Gothic in every conceivable way. Plus, there are gargoyles! 

That’s it. No adult fictions this week but I hope to remedy that on my next jaunt. I hope y’all had a great week. 🙂

  • Rose Under Fire! I have a copy too, since the UK edition came out, I just have to find the time to finally read it. And Projection? What is this? Off to check on GoodReads!

  • How beautiful those books look with the sun shining on them!

  • Yeah, like Mel said, don't expect something earth shattering from Chaos of the Stats. It's a FUN book. I wish I would've mentioned that in my review, because I guess I didn't realize how much people expected from it.

  • Ah, pretty pictures 😀 Awesome that you took your books outside, lol 🙂 Oh, I love that cover of Rose Under Fire. *Wants* and I cannot wait to read Thornhill 🙂 Hope you enjoy it all <3

  • Nice day! Congrats on the signed Omens.

  • I'm really excited to read The Chaos of Stars and Omens. I hope you enjoy all your new goodies. Great haul and happy reading!

  • I want Omens! And wow 823 pages for Styxx?! That's a lot of reading. Hopefully it's a good book otherwise it'll drag on forever!

    So the day turned into one with a downpour? Perfect for reading by the fire. Enjoy your books, Joy. 🙂

  • Lovely haul. Heard very mixed reviews about Styxx. Kind of scared. Come visit me as well.

    Books of Love

  • If you keep in mind that the chaos of the stars is more a fluffly/light book, you'll like it! Don't expect too much plot 🙂 I'm excited about Thornhill 😀
