Yes, yes, I know, I hear you, like I really, and I mean, really need to read the books I already have on my TBR first, before going online and buying yet more books!

But … my friend (@Macdibble) Bren’s book, HOW TO BEE is released March 4 here, in Canada, and I so want my own copy. Then there’s the exciting new YA novel from June Hur, THE SILENCE OF BONES, which is set in 18c Korea. Damn, are you kidding me, the write up alone, never mind the lovely Korean/Canadian author, June, had me so wanting to read this one. Talk about anticipation.

Then there’s WE WERE KILLERS ONCE, the next in Becky Masterman’s Brigid Quinn series, which I’ve been wanting for some time now. So yes, of course it had to go in the basket. Don’t ask me why, but I always have to buy 3 books at a time. Not one, not two, but three!

Then there’s Laura Lam’s GOLDILOCKS along with S.A. Chakraborty’s EMPIRE OF GOLD, her third and last installment of the Daevabad series, that I sooo want to read. So I see more book buying in my near future …

And you?

    The Silence of Bones is one that I really want to read too Alexandra! I requested a copy on Edelweiss (but not much hope as I’ve never been approved by them so far!). And of course there is Empire of Gold!

      Oh, you too, Sophie? When I saw the author on twitter, and checked out her blog, I just knew I had to order BONES! And yes, we’re both looking forward to EMPIRE OF GOLD as well. I think this is going to be a really good reading year!

    I really want Goldilocks! I’ve liked Laura Lam’s books more and more over time (with the exception of her romance novels published as Laura Ambrose, where I read the first one and thought it was okay but not astounding), so I expect this one will be pretty good.

      Oh, I am glad you’re a fan too, Nikki. I haven’t actually read anything from her, yet, but when I saw the early promo for this one, I was hooked. I have it on preorder and can’t wait. There is the promise of so much adventure in this one.
