So yesterday I was in Birmingham - Christmas shopping. And I somehow (lol) found myself in Waterstones.
The store has a pretty darn good Urban, Sci-Fi and Fantasy selection. (I was quite impressed that they seem to have shelved all the UF together). And everything was 3 for 2. So first I found two books, which meant I HAD to find a third. Then I was at five books which meant I HAD to find a sixth. (These are all being put up for Christmas)
So in the end I came away with:-
Unholy Magic and City of Ghosts by Stacia Kane. Renee's post at DIK this week reminded me I needed to pick these up. It felt like they were calling to me.
Silver Borne by Patricia Briggs - one of the series I've ended up getting behind on.
Changeless and Blameless by Gail Carriger. I read Soulless this year and this was another series I wanted to stay up to date with.
Finally I got The Final Empire (Mistborn #1) by Brandon Sanderson. This is a little out of left field for me. I don't usually read what I think of as 'straight' fantasy - fantasy without urban elements. Also this is a very chunky book - 643 pages - and I'm still trying to find time to read Demon Moon by Meljean Brook and I don't think DM is that long. But I needed a sixth book and I have a vague memory of reading a good review about the Mistborn series (possibly on Renee or Tracy's blog?), and did I mention I needed a sixth book?
So back to not buying books and tackling the TBR pile again.
