Note: This time of year is always very busy for me. Last year, I hadn't really started blogging yet, so I was able to keep myself above the craziness. This year, I am. My blog is slightly inactive due to the holiday craze. Hopefully will return to the regular posting after the new year. :)

New books?

Yes, I did get some new books. Only five so far, but I do believe I will be getting some money from my parents, which I will buy at least one book with and maybe a sims 2 expansion pack. Would you like to hear what I got yet? Alright.

These first two books I got for Christmas, from my cousin Josie. Thanks!

Radiance by Alison Noel

Yes, I did mention this in a blog before. I'm still reading this one, but I'll get a review out ASAP.

Could I just ask a question? Does anyone else love the way certain parts of Alison Noel's covers feel? They have a smooth, sort of....unusual feel. I have no clue how else to describe it.

The Other Side by J.D. Robb (and various others)

I had never seen this book before, but I'm interested in reading it. It's basically paranormal stories.

These next two books I bought.

Radiant Shadows by Melissa Marr

No, this isn't the first book in the series. No, I don't own the other ones. No, I haven't even read them.
While I'd like to own these, I haven't seen them anywhere, which is probably why I bought the last book. I guess it's time to make the trip to Barnes and Noble. I love going there, but we don't actually go very often, considering it's a little bit of a drive. And I always end up spending every dollar I bring with me. I can't help it, I have a problem. I'm addicted to books.
There's actually a bit of a funny story behind buying this book, so maybe I'll post it up soon.

Heartsick by Chelsea Cain

Alright, I'll admit it. The main thing that caused me to buy this was that the cover is so interestingly dark and beautiful. It's bright red, but the black edges and the damaged look just gives it depth.

The book does sound interesting, but I'm frightened about it's contents. It's an adult book, so I have no clue what might be in there. I'm going to be mature, and attempt to read it, at least, but being a fourteen year old girl, I don't want to read anything dirty or inappropriate.

The last book on the list was given to me for my birthday, from my best friend. Thanks Riley!

The gift by James Patterson

Oh, my lord. I actually own a copy of The Gift. *squeal*
Alright, my fangirl attack is over. I've been dying to get this, though.

And you know, Riley was dropping little hints about what she got me, saying she got me "my birthday gift." or that she had already bought my "gift." I never even caught on. I did, however, think it was odd that she was saying gift instead of present. It just sounded awkward, but I kept shrugging it off.
Next time, I watching out for book titles in her sentences. *laughs*
Anyways, thanks Riley. You can check out her blog here. She writes about books too.
