Book Binging! (1)

April 6, 2014 Book Binging 30

I have a serious book buying and acquiring addiction! Huzzah to Book Binging! Heck, I don’t know a book blogger that doesn’t. If I don’t grab at least as many books as there are number of days in a week I start to go through withdrawals.

So what’s more fun than jumping around and seeing what everyone else has added to their shelves for the week? For that reason I link up two these two lovely ladies:

The Sunday Post hosted by Kimberly @ Kimba The Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga @ Tynga’s Reviews.



Purchased Books!
I went a little whicky in the whacky woo recently thinking that “I’m just going to buy two Elizabeth Bear books from I should have known better – I can’t even go to that site without dropping at least 10 books into my shopping cart. You know what else about silly me? I already own Welcome to Bordertown. I also discovered yesterday that I bought a copy of Daughter of Smoke & Bone when I already owned that as well. I need to keep better track of these things!

BBreview1Review Books!
I think I sounded something between a rabid squirrel and a teen fangirl when I got these two in the mail from Jo Fletcher Books. One is the second book, the first of which I read a few years ago, loved and didn’t see it ever hit the states – The Glass Republic. And the other I was told by a friend is essentially a fantasy type Three Musketeers. Sold chaching.

When I'm in the zone I can flip book pages faster than the eye can see - screaming "More Input!" I'm a book, yarn, & art supply hoarding goblin who loves to draw, make toys and craft all sorts of creepy cute things. My current habit is to listen to audio books while I'm arting it up!
Stalk me!

      Prepare to break the bank then! But in a good way. You can get so many books for so cheap but then I always go overboard and spend WAY more than I should because there is always another and another I must add to my cart!

    These were a bit new to me, but that’s only a good thing – more to add on my TBR list! 😉 Great haul – Iron Skin especially seems promising, I loved the concept. 🙂 Happy reading!

      It really does look promising doesn’t it~! I heard from a friend it was really good and that I needed to just get on it already. One can never have enough books on the TBR!

      I have always loved the covers Jay Lake gets for this series but for some reason the reviews scared me off of buying it but I decided for that price it couldn’t be beat and really you know….I could totally love it!

    Texas Gothic, I ended up reading the next in the series by accident (but since it’s different characters, and a different story, not a “follow on” type, it didn’t really matter.) I didn’t realise until after, haha.

      The reason I found out about this one was because I had snagged a copy of the other and was like hmmm yes it’s supposed to be something i don’t have to read in order but now that I know, I want to read the first one. I’m just that way. I do love knowing that they aren’t necessary to read together because there just aren’t that many stand alones out there. When I find them I gobble them up.

      You know I read two of the HOlly Black Tithe trilogy books out of order. Sometimes it matters and sometimes it doesn’t. I love it when an author writes the book such that it DOESN’T!

      I just can’t seem to let myself get unburied! I was thinking of having a photo shoot with a huge pile of books and me laying in it or me buried underneath them like sand.

    This is amazing haul – Texas Gothic is one of my favorite books. I hope you’ll love it too.

      Remarking that it is a favorite is high praise indeed! Thanks so much for following! I will be checking you out now!

    • Pabkins

      Now I will have to stay away from the site for at least six months, or until I’ve read at least half of what I bought!

    • Tabitha (Pabkins)

      Thanks! Wait til you see the little book binging sketch/graphic that is being designed for the weekly haul posts. Heck I put the sketch up on my instagram. You must see him! He’s a little robot binging on books shoving a whole stack in his mouth!

      Thanks for visiting Kimberly!

    I am pretty sure that at least half of these books are on my TBR list. I try not to buy a ton of books at once though buying one or two at a time every time I go out pretty much adds up to the same thing.

      What I love the best about my book binging sprees is that they don’t come with any timeline pressure to read them!!

      Bookoutlet is now a fav place of mine for getting those HOT books from last year or the year before that I didn’t end up snagging for review.

      (I already have my next shopping cart saved on bookoutlets site lol. I’ll check out once I reach around ten again. Which hopefully won’t be for another 6 to 9 months.)
