Friday Buys 1/14-21/11

I got an order in this week!!!  YAY! :)  I was so excited to get it that I pretty much jumped up and gasped with excitement every time I saw a UPS guy or my mom brought the mail in.  (Unfortunately it didn't even come in when I was home...)  It's one of the best feelings in the world to get a box of books in the mail.  LOVE it. :)

In the box:

  • My Fairy Fair Godmother by Janette Rallison  ($2.99)

  • A Kiss in Time by Alex Flinn  ($2.99)

  • Two Girls of Gettysburg by Lisa Klein  ($3.99)

  • Princess of the Midnight Ball by Jessica Day George  ($2.99)

  • Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow by Jessica Day George  ($6.99 - hardcover, still a good price though; the rest are paperback)

  • Some giveaway stuff that I will not reveal the name of... ;)

Yesterday at the library I went into the bookstore and got:

  • The Overton Window by Glenn Beck  ($.50 - BOOYAH!  Paperback)

Last Friday, I went to the bookstore and got:

  • The boxed set of the Mark of the Lion trilogy....

A Voice in the Wind

An Echo in the Darkness (Attractive?  I think yes.)  :)

As Sure as the Dawn

I'm super excited about reading the ones above - and re-reading the trilogy!   SUCH amazing books!

Happy Friday and Happy Reading! :)


  1. Wow, GREAT books! I love the feeling of getting books in the mail. :)

    I was surprised at how much I enjoyed My Fair Godmother. I really liked it. I also loved Princess of the Midnight Ball!

    I'll be looking forward to hearing your thoughts on The Two Girls of Gettysburg. I just posted my review for Klein's Cate of the Lost Colony, a book I enjoyed a lot.

    That trilogy down at the bottom looks really good. In more ways than one :)

  2. Yes, the trilogy is all sorts of wonderfulness! haha! :) And my sister picked up My Fair Godmother and started reading the back in a funny voice...we were laughing so hard and both of us were like, Oh we have to read this book! :)
    Thanks for commenting!

  3. Hi Sierra!
    I'm super excited to read your review on Overton Window and A Kiss In Time! I just read a book called 'When You Reach Me'... It was awesome I think you should read it!!!

  4. Hey Josiah, thanks for commenting! I'm super excited to read both of those books...hopefully I'll get around to them soon. :) You know, I tried "When You Reach Me" about a year ago and I just didn't like it...for some reason I didn't feel like it had a point. Maybe I'll pick it up again someday and try again. Hmmm... :)

  5. Oh really? I loved it and our literary analysis group is doing it this week. You really should finish it though cause the reason it doesn't seem to have a point for probably the first 3 or 4 chapters is to make the ending more dramatic. You might already know this though haha! Did you finish the book?

  6. Ugh! So I hate that I have to disagree with you on this book... I actually did read (skim...very intently skimming though!) the whole book and I felt like it had no point at all. I wish I could say differently, but alas...I cannot... I just remember the homeless person was a time-traveller or something and I didn't like it. Haha! :/

  7. OH MY GOSH!!!! I am soooo jealous that you bought the Mark of the Lion trilogy!!!! They are some of my top favorite books ever!!! I love you girly! <3
