Friday Buys - The Writing Edition

I finally splurged on a writing book...or two...or three.  I'm really excited about them!  I needed the extra push.  I'm really loving having these basics around!

The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath
I can't wait to read this!  My friends and I are doing a little read-along and I can't even wait!

Eon by Alison Goodman
I was really craving a thick YA fantasy.  I almost bought one full price at B&N.  Then I found this for $1 at the used bookstore.  SCORE!

The Prey by Andrew Fukuda
I'm dying to read this NOW because The Hunt ended like soooo Lauren Oliver-ish it's not even funny.  I've waited almost a year so I'm hoping to get to this ASAP.

Thesaurus and Synonym/Antonym books
I seriously need these so badly.

The Emotion Thesaurus by Ackerman & Puglisi
THIS BOOK.  I read some reviews on Amazon and decided it's what I need.  I've used it EVERY TIME I've written since I got it.  Which is every day.  This book is priceless, people.  Go buy it if you're a writer!  It's only $10 on Amazon!

Ordinary Magic by Caitlin Rubino-Bradway
So guys, I kinda love this book. A lot. Caitlin makes my world go 'round.  Read her book, yo.
And if you can't decide if you want to, you could always read my incredibly persuasive review HERE.

The Spindlers by Lauren Oliver
Obviously, since she's my favorite.
And Obviously, since I'm meeting her in about 2 weeks.
You know, no biggie.

Tiger's Quest by Colleen Houck
I love these books.  So, so much.  Oh, happy day!

Tiger's Voyage by Colleen Houck
LOOK!!  ANOTHER ONE!!  This one, I think, is my favorite of the series.  I'm dying over it.  The dragons are magnificent. TRUE LOVE.

(They're so ordinary they're extraordinary.)
(Ignore my weak attempt at mentioning Ordinary Magic again.)

Anyways.  Happy reading to all!! ;)


  1. Looks like you got some good books. I spent more than I normally do on some ebooks today. Now I just need to find time to read them all. :)

  2. That's always the problem, isn't it?? Making time for them all! I own so many that I haven't read that I'm going to start a book buying ban,,,I can't buy one book until I've read 5 of the ones I already own. Hope I stick to it! haha ;) What books did you buy? :)

  3. I'm definitely interested in THE BELL JAR, and have been for a few years, but I feel like it'll be a really draining read. Just one depressing situation after another. I'll be looking forward to your thoughts on that one, as well as EON and THE SPINDLERS. & you can't go wrong with the Merriam-Websters!
