I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

Book-buying Ban is officially over!

I was doing so well this year. Only purchased a few ebooks (not available in print) for all of January. Okay, I did buy a textbook but I don't think you want to hear about that one ;) February came and I was adding a book I found on someone's blog to my wish list at amazon. Dang that "recommended" link! I was good, resisted the lure...until I went to Target :( ...then one of the Borders Books that is being closed is the one I go to..... I'm sure you can understand my dilemma.

Here's a list of books purchased so far this year. Once I figure out the scanner and have access to the other computer, I'll get graphics up.

Curiosity Thrilled the Cat by Sofie Kelly - This is the first in the "A Magical Cats Mystery" series.

Another first in a series, How to Wash a Cat by Rebecca M. Hale

An Invitation to Sin, an anthology with Jo Beverley and three others.

and one more in my purse..... Stitch Me Deadly by Amanda Lee. This is book two in the series. I loved book one and this one seems just as promising.

plus three by favorite authors...

Live to Tell by Lisa Gardner.
Fairy Tale Weddings by Debbie Macomber (Cindy and the Prince and Some Kind of Wonderful bound together)
Death Echo by Elizabeth Lowell. How in the world did I miss this in hardcover?

Not too bad. Then I went to Borders....

Six by Christine Feehan, from GhostWalkers: Ruthless Game, Street Game, Murder Game. From Drake Sisters: Water Bound and Hidden Currents. Plus a Carpathian novel, Dark Slayer

Three by Sarah Graves: Trap Door, Nail Biter, and The Book of Old Houses, all part of the A Home Repair is Homicide Mystery series.

Hidden Empire by Orson Scott Card
Play of Passion by Nalini Singh
Here to Stay by Catherine Anderson
Luck of the Wolf by Susan Krinard
Midnight Kiss, an anthology with Robyn Carr and two others.

YIKES! and to think, I put half of the books back! All in all, I got off light!

I don't know when I'll get to these but it's nice to be mostly caught up with books available in a series. Maybe I better work on my school work ;)
