Mad about Sandra.

This week was a Sandra Brown kind of week on the blog. I’d say I’m sorry, but hey. Her’s were all that I was in the mood for, nothing much I can do about that. I did manage to sneak in a couple of YAs. I read Push by Eve Silver and Snow Like Ashes by Sarah Raasch; both weren’t great, to be honest. I was supposed to have Jeyn Roberts on Monday here, but something must’ve happened on their end. I didn’t get her post until Friday. So I might post it some time this week.

Twenty dollars in my pocket.

I went on a spending spree at a thrift shop this week as well. I managed to snag some books that cost me a total of $20. Pretty good deal, if you ask me. But that doesn’t bode well with the dwindling space situation in my house.

The Quiet Dell and Low Pressure were both engrossing reads. Push and Snow Like Ashes, however…sigh.

Have a great week, everyone!

  • I’m so glad you have a copy of Every Breath to read! I love that series. One of the best YA mystery type books I’ve read. And I have such high expectations regarding Snow Like Ashes. I hope it lives up to the hope.

  • Naomi @ Nomi’s Paranormal Palace

    Love your new reads especially Snow like Ashes!

    Thanx for visiting My Weekly Wrap-Up!

  • I read and liked Snow like Ashes, has a nice world-building a a good MC.
    Enjoy yor books.

  • Ooh, I’ve heard that about Push, but not Snow Like Ashes! It sounds so good, though. When it comes to good book deals, to heck with shelf space! 🙂 (Though I should probably start ignoring my own advice as my shelves become more and more packed…) Better luck this week, eh?

    I hope you’re having a good week, Joy!!

  • I’ve heard great things about Bronze Horseman, like the word “epic” to describe it. Low Pressure is one of the library audios I can check out. I have two audios to go through before I start another Sandra Brown. Can’t wait! Enjoy your books, Joy! 🙂

  • Alise (Readers in Wonderland)

    I’m really excited for Snow Like Ashes and Sublime, although I’m partial to those covers 😉 I’ve heard mixed things on them but I still have high hopes, can’t wait to see what you think of them. Enjoy! 🙂

  • Ahhhhhh these look so good!! Totally fangirling right now. And having $20 in your pocket just for books is awesome, I need to do that and visit my thrift store

  • I found life after life in my country biggest bookstore. So excited for it. Only two walls have american books. A mosh posh of genres stacked on them . So little YA.

    HAPPY READING !!!!

  • Oh, I’ve read so many good things about Snow Like Ashes – sorry you didn’t like it! Glad you had some other good reads, though!

  • Bronze Horseman and My True Love Gave to Me. Squeeeee. I’m so envious right now. Pretty stack of books you got, Joy. Enjoy them all! 🙂

  • hahaha Snow Like Ashes seems to be a hit or miss and when I saw you purchased it I was thinking it might be a miss for you. It’s definitely flawed but I liked Meira and it brought the feels for me in the end. I also just bought My True Love Gave to Me and I can’t wait to snuggle with a blanket, a fireplace, and a warm drink around this Holiday season and devour it!

  • Almost finished Life After Life, really enjoyable read so far!

  • Christy

    Great, now I’m going to have that song in my head. 😀 Oh, I hope you get to post Jeyn, I love her.

  • I enjoyed Snow and hope you do too

  • Yay for bunch of gorgeous books. <3 I just love the cover for Snow Like Ashes. But oh. I'm so sorry you didn't love it 🙁 I have heard bad things I do not like. Sigh. Will read it one day, though ;p Hope you love all of these gorgeous books Joy. <3 Happy reading sweetie 🙂 And hope you will have an awesome upcoming week!

  • AND I GOT TOO EXCITED AND HIT POST COMMENT BECAUSE I’M SO FANGIRLING RIGHT NOW WHICH IS SO RARE BUT I’M SO HAPPY YOU GRABBED A COPY BECAUSE IT’S SO WORTH EVERY DIME AND THIS IS BECOMING A SUPER LONG SENTENCE SO I NEED TO SSTOP AND BREATHE…

    • Lol! You’re too funny, Braine. 🙂 xoxo

      I will definitely bump that up my TBR!

  • OMG OMG OMG THE BRONZE HORSEMAN IS ONE OF MY ALL TIME FAVORITE READS!!! YOU HAVE TO READ IT FIRST IF YOU HAVEN’T YET! YES

  • I’m sorry to hear that you didn’t enjoy Snow Like Ashes. I really enjoyed it. Great haul of books.

    Grace @ Books of Love

  • Wonderful deals and finds, congrats! I have been loving your Sandra Brown kick, I even have a few of her books on hold at the library now because of it. 😉

  • When is a book spending spree never a good thing? 😛 I actually didn’t buy much this week… total shocker!

  • Don’t think I have ever read (or heard about….) Sandra Brown, but now I AM CURIOUS. Also, looking forward to your thoughts on The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry (I did hear a lot of that one 🙂

  • Oh a shame about Snow Like Ashes and Push, you didn’t like those ones? Sounds like you had fun book hunting, yay for bargain stores! The Bronze Horseman is a great book too. Have a lovely week ahead Joy!

  • Snow Like Ashes has been getting a lot of positive reviews lately. I haven’t really read any good books lately, but I’ve been reading a few pages day by day. I haven’t spent a lot of money for books, either. I’m still spending my Amazon GCs 😀
