holy huge responses, batman!

hot damn that was a lot of responses to my post yesterday on how we decide what to read next! just…. wow! Thanks to everyone who responded, it’s going to take me a while to respond to everyone’s comments, please don’t hate me too much.
There was something that prompted that post. I ordered a couple of titles I’ve been meaning to buy for a long time. I requested a few ARCs from publishers (I try to only request something that I KNOW I am going to read). I found some old stuff I wanted on paperback swap.
Everything showed up at the same time, nearly gave the poor mailman a coronary. and this doesn’t include the three other ARCs I requested, which should show up any day.
Thanks to an Amazon giftcard I purchased:
I did specifically request the Jon Sprunk, but the others were just happy surprises. Sent to me by very kind and friendly publishers:
Blood and Iron by Jon Sprunk
Thief’s Magic by Trudi Canavan
Ghost Train to New Orleans by Mur Lafferty
the Very Best of Tad Williams, by Tad Williams
The Madonna and the Starship by James Morrow – this looks very cool and funny, btw
Wolfsbane by Gillian Philip – and oh how I LOVE THIS SERIES!! So this is a priority, but the book doesn’t hit shelves till the summer.
this doesn’t count anything that’s still in the TBR pile sitting on the coffee table. It’s no surprise that I’m feeling a little overwhelmed. So what did I pick up to read? This baby from paperback swap. I’m 50 pages in and it’s hysterical. Sometimes you just need a fun, light comfort read.
talk to ya soon!
