Amelia | 57 comments Acid by Emma Pass Slide (Slide, #1) by Jill Hathaway The Kill Order (Maze Runner, #0.5) by James Dashner The Maze Runner (Maze Runner, #1) by James Dashner The Death Cure (Maze Runner, #3) by James Dashner Bizarrely they had the prequel, book one and book three but not book two... so there's probably at least one more to be bought once I get round to reading them!

message 34: by Jool (new)

Jool (jools4853) I simply ask for Amazon (or Kindle) cards for Christmas, birthday, etc. Then I savorrrrrrr the fact I have x $$ to spend on books. I LOVE books. They are my life! (well, that and my dobies). OK: quick recommendation - if you have Kindle be SURE to purchase the Kindle Unlimited option. $9.99 per month for thousands of free books. You can have 10 checked out at a time. I have paid for SO MANY books that I find now I could have read for free. Anyway, back to the topic: For February:
The Opium Eater: A Life Of Thomas De Quincey
Wife Number Seven
The Silent Girls
Etiquette & Espionage
Irreparable Harm

OK, I have more, but let's just say I am retired and THIS is what I *DO* LOL!!!!!!! OMG I love life.

Ilean (ileanfulton) | 242 comments Another weeeeeeeeeeeeeee not a purchase but the big brown shaky truck gave me a Goodreads giveaway book "Magic for Beginners" stories by Kelly Link. Also, my daughter got me "An Irish Country Wedding" by Patrick Taylor. She so sweet and I turned her into a bookaholic. She has been severely plagued with bookaholism.

message 37: by Veronika (new)

Veronika (vforveronika) Not a buy but I got The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl by Issa Rae as a surprise in the mail from my brother and sister-in-law. They know me so well lol! This is also just in time for the book signing that I will be going to for this book on Wednesday (hopefully I can get my copy signed and get another signed copy to send back to my sister-in-law).

message 38: by Ilean (new)

Ilean (ileanfulton) | 242 comments OMG, not a purchase but another Goodreads giveaway that arrive today! "My Name Is Resolute" by Nancy E. Turner trade paper.
I love the cover art. Can't wait to read it but I'm in the middle of another book at the moment. I can't read two books at once.

message 39: by Jool (new)

Jool (jools4853) OMG! How do you get these Goodreads giveaways ??

message 40: by Amelia (new)

Amelia | 57 comments All My Friends are Superheroes by Andrew Kaufman I'd say it'll probably be my last buy of February but I have the doctors' tomorrow and work Saturday and both of those = close proximity to shops with books, so...

Look at top left of your Goodreads home page, look for the word "Explore". Hit Explore and go to giveaways, then to more giveaways. Select what you would like to enter to win. Put in your name, address etc. hit enter.
So awesome, last year I got about 7 books, this year I am already at 6.

message 43: by Jool (new)

Jool (jools4853) Ilean, thank you thank you thank you!!! Goodreads is already great, and the more I find out the better it gets.
