what’s the buzz: weekly round-up
I’ve been largely MIA the last couple of weeks. Been trying to get organised for Christmas plus work has been rather busy (it’s busy all the time but even more-so at this time of year).
I’ve also come down with the dreaded lurgy (i.e. the cold). I have been feeling off for the last couple of weeks but it came to a head on Thursday. It started with stomach issues (which meant I had to walk out halfway through Aquaman *sniff*) and then developed into a full-blown cold complete with runny nose and a general feeling of lethargy. I’m feeling quite sorry for myself, truth be told.
my bookish haul
Not too many books this week (well, not many considering it’s actually been approx 2 weeks since my last STS post!)
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins | Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins | Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins | Silent Night by R.L. Stine
I have wanted these foil editions of The Hunger Games for absolutely ages so really happy to finally add these to my collection! I also found a brand new copy of Silent Night, one of the Fear Street series books – pretty appropriate given the time of year too!
The Secret Diaries: Escape by Janice Harrell | Twins by Caroline B. Cooney | Fatal Secrets by Richie Tankersley Cusick | The Silent Scream by Diane Hoh | The Mall by Richie Tankersley Cusick | Deadly Attraction by Diane Hoh | The Wish by Diane Hoh | The Roommate by Diane Hoh
Spellbound by Christopher Pike | The Eternal Enemy by Christopher Pike | Bury Me Deep by Christopher Pike | Die Softly by Christopher Pike | Whisper of Death by Christopher Pike | Road to Nowhere by Christopher Pike | The Immortal by Christopher Pike | Slumber Party by Christopher Pike | Master of Murder by Christopher Pike | The Last Vampire by Christopher Pike
I may actually have gone a bit (just a bit!) mad on second-hand books – whoops! Nevermind, I managed to get quite a few good ones. Some duplicates but overall a pretty decent haul. Lots of Christopher Pike books – he was a firm favourite of mine back in the day. 😉
In the Pines by Laura Lascarso | The Memory of You by Jamie Beck | Found in the Night by Ben Alderson
I’ve already read (and loved!) In the Pines so really looking forward to reading the rest of these beauties!
Spectacle by Jodie Lynn Zdrok | Summoned to Thirteenth Grave by Darynda Jones | The Parisians by Marius Gabriel
I hadn’t intended on getting any more ARCs until I’d caught up a bit (okay, a lot!) with my current outstanding reads but I had been approved for a couple of books I had requested a while back. Then I couldn’t resist The Parisians… I’m a nightmare – honestly…
