I know this will come as a shocking surprise to you, but I have a bit of a problem when it comes to controlling my book buying impulses. I regularly inform hubs that it's a cheaper habit than loving shoes, handbags, or plastic surgery so he should be thankful.
But I thought it'd been fun to occasionally let you know what I've been clicking buy on. I talk about what I read and love on Must Read Mondays, so this won't be about books I've read but about books I've bought and added to my TBR pile.
The Haunting Season by Michelle Muto
Why: Because it's a Daily Deal and I can't resist a sale or a creepy-sounding book
First Grave on the Right by Darynda Jones
Why: I've heard nothing but good things about this series. The first page hooked me. I met Darynda last year at RWA and she was lovely. And it was on sale.
The Submission Gift by Solace Ames
Why: I think I saw this one reviewed somewhere, maybe RT magazine? And I love a story with a married couple because there aren't a lot out there in romancelandia. (Which is also why I wrote one with Still Into You)
Foreplay by Sophie Jordan
Why: I went to Sophie's workshop at a conference this past weekend and then got to chat with her at dinner that night. I was intrigued by the premise of this one.
Still Life With Strings by L.H. Cosway
Why: I liked her book Painted Faces and I saw a good review for this one on a book blog.
Control by Charlotte Stein
Why: I've been on a Charlotte Stein kick lately.
Sweet Disorder by Rose Lerner
Why: I saw a few book bloggers chatting about this one on Twitter and the blurb caught my eye.
Third Degree by Julie Cross
Why: I heart Julie's writing. I got to read this one early for a cover quote but I bought it because I know it was tweaked afterward and I want to read the final version.
Write Your Novel From the Middle by James Scott Bell
Why: I pretty much love everything James Scott Bell has to say about writing, so I needed this one, too.
So that's my haul for the week. What did you buy?
