The Parasol Protectorate by Gail Carriger
I knew that I'd been wanting to buy the first book on ebook, and that I'd likely buy the third book online as soon as I finished the second because library didn't have a copy of the third (and it was a Sunday and I'm horribly impatient), so I was really excited when I discovered that the whole box set was only $16! I mean that's practically three dollars a book!
Gates of Thread and Stone by Lori M. Lee
While I was browsing Amazon for deals, I stumbled across this gem for only $1! My good friend LaLa recommended it to me a while back, and my library doesn't have any copies of it so how could I NOT buy this?
The Last Werewolf by Glen Duncan
The friend I visited down in South Carolina never fails to send me home with a book to read and this was this trip's choice book! The last few books have all been Jim Butcher's Dresden Files but he couldn't find the next one I was on in the series so he sent me home with this one. I credited him with being half the reason I discovered I actually like paranormal fiction - something I utterly disdained until this year - so he was pretty pleased I wasn't going to fight him on it haha!
The Discworld Graphic Novels by Terry Pratchett
Ever since I've discovered Terry Pratchett aka the author of my soul, I've been on the lookout for his books. So when I saw this beautiful thing, I HAD to have it. The art is so gorgeous!!!
The Thief of Always by Clive Barker
Speaking of gorgeous graphic novel adaptations....I had to pick this up because hello it's a Clive Barker story! I love Clive Barker. I may have mentioned him once. Or twice. I actually haven't read the original yet (although it is very high on my list of books to get to) so I'm not sure which I'm going to read first - this or the original.
Herman and Rosie by Gus Gordon
I repeat: It's an alligator playing an oboe. Plus you know, existential life crisis (a la life after grad school sort of feeling) How could I not buy this? Best self birthday present ever! WORTH IT.
Terrier by Tamora Pierce
Despite my absolutely immense disappointment with the last book in the series, I ran across this in a thrift store and decided this must be my sign to buy the first two books. (And the third book just NEVER. HAPPENED.) It is after all my goal to own every Tamora Pierce book, and with the exception of the Bloodhound I now own all of the Tortall books (BECAUSE THAT LAST BOOK DOESN'T EXIST)! I might just try and buy her Emelan books as ebooks because...she has A LOT of books haha!
Lumatere Chronicles by Melina Marchetta
This is another series I've been wanting to own SO BADLY since I read the series for the first time last year! Now I can reread at will AND shove them into everyone's faces so they'll read them!
Peter and the Starcatchers by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson
So crazy story, but someone on Goodreads who I've never met and never talked to otherwise randomly commented on one of my reviews and mentioned this series. Literally the next day I saw it in a thrift store (seriously this thrift store had a surprisingly awesome book selection) so....you know, fate and all. (Otherwise known as an excellent excuse for buying books you don't need)
Orleans by Sherri L. Smith
LaLa is getting two mentions in this post! She sent me a copy of this last month because she's THE BEST!! I'm super excited about it because apparently it doesn't have much in the way of romance and I've seen some pretty stellar reviews (including of course, LaLa's endorcement). I'm saving it for when I'm in less of a regency era romance mood because I'm in a strange place where all I want to read are fluffy love stories which is fairly unusual, but I'm definitely excited to get to this whenever I get out of this strange phase I'm in hahaha!
And that's it for me! What were the last 10 book that landed in your possession? If you've written a TTT post leave a link in the comments and I'll stop by!
