Friday Buys 4/29/11 - 5/6/11

This was a fun week of buying.  Got one smokin' deal and another good deal....  But I would pay a good amount of money (to a certain extent, of course) to get my hands on Entwined, so $10 isn't that bad!

Entwined by Heather Dixon
If you haven't read this book yet, I have one question for you:  "WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!"
Sorry.  Excuse my rude interruption.
Anyways, I was beyond excited when this lovely copy came in the mail.  It is now sitting on my shelf, the shelf that I wish it to call home for a long, long time.  If anyone removes it without my permission, spills food on it, bends its pages (no dog-earing!), loses it, mars it, or destroys it in any way will lose a hand.  Or two.
Just kidding...sort of.

Gorgeous.  I love the old feel of it, just like an old childhood fairy tale that you've always loved and always will... :)

Not only are the cover and contents beautiful, but the actual layout of the inside is beautiful! :)

Dark Life by Kat Falls (Dark Life #1)
I picked this book up a year ago, loved what I read, but had to put it down due to circumstances.  I've always meant to pick it up again, but hardly remembered it amidst all the other titles that bombarded me after I started my blog.  (This is a good thing!)  But, after a lovely Goodreads giveaway, I miraculously won one of five hardcover copies of Dark Life.  It's signed, too!!  So basically, I'm DYING to get into it again! :D

The Arctic Incident by Eoin Colfer (Artemis Fowl #2)
I haven't read the first book, but I found this copy in pretty darn good condition for 50 cents!  Sorry, I canNOT pass up a deal like that.  Now I've purchased #1 and #2 for a total of $1.00.  Super proud of myself here...  Keep this up and I'll have the whole series for less than $5.00. ;)  (Now all I need to do is read them...)

Happy reading everyone! :)


  1. That's right, NO dog-earing!! If that horror ever occurs, I'll help you track down the perpetrators and hack of their hands. :P

  2. OOO I want to read Entwined so badly!!! and Artemis Fowl is amazing...really love the series :D Happy Reading!

  3. I REALLY need to buy Entwined! It's sooo pretty ;)

  4. Entwined looks so good! I put myself on a book buying ban to try and save some money, so I'm going to check out my library and fingers crossed it will have it.

    I haven't read artemis fowl either but I have the first one. I will get around to reading it eventually.

    And congrats on the goodreads win. I love that site. And I love talking to you through our comments and reviews. :)


  5. Entwined is SO pretty. That's a book I would buy just for the looks alone. :P
