Books Bought:

Hollow City 
By: Ransom Riggs
Published: January 14, 2014

Bought: January 14, 2014
I knew this book was coming out on this date b/c I have been waiting for it's release for almost 3 years now. The morning of it's release date I made sure I was at Walmart to be the first person to buy this book. Of course I was being that I went at 6 o'clock in the morning lol! The book wasn't even on the floor yet. I had to get one of the employee's to go in the back and get one from it's unopened box.


The Orphan and The Thief
By: M.L. Legette
Published: January 3, 2014

Bought: January 17, 2014
I stumbled upon this book on DJ's Corner and it's sounded pretty unique and fun. It involves a Toad and an Owl, some magic and a lot of adventure. I needed a happy story after reading some of these dark stories I've been reading lately.

Bellman & Black: A Ghost Story
By: Diane Setterfield
Published : November 5, 2013

Bought: January 17, 2014
I went ahead and purchase this book yesterday because it was on sale for $1.99 for Kindle. I'm a sucker for Kindle books, especially one's that are on my TBR list. 
I've heard mixed reviews on this book, more bad than good. I'd thought I'd give it a read. When that will be, I have no idea.

House of Bathory
By: Linda Lafferty
Published: January 14, 2014

Bought: January 17, 2014
I don't know what it is but lately I've been reading a lot of creepy, dark stories. This one sounds FREAKY! It's a historical fiction inspired by the actual crimes of Elizabeth Báthory.

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty
By: James Thurber
Published: December 17, 2013

Bought: January 17, 2014
This is a short story James Thurber wrote to give us a glimpse of Walter Mitty's life. A life that consists of frequent daydreaming. Proving that you are never too old to have a huge imagination!

Books from Library: 

Fortunately, The Milk
By: Neil Gaiman
Illustrated by: Skottie Young
Published: September 17, 2013

This book is from the library but someday soon I will own a copy. I'm a HUGE Neil Gaiman fan and I'm in the process of collecting all of his magical works of art.
