My new position at work and the holiday last weekend has definitely put me behind on my reading and on my blogging. I've also been a bit under the weather as well, but I'm feeling better and things are finally back into a routine. Over the weekend I found out that Christopher Moore would be in town this August to talk about his new series, and while I haven't read it, I do love other books he's written. I've also never gotten a chance to hear him speak before, let alone the chance to meet him.
So as luck would have it, yesterday due to work, I was right around the corner from a favorite bookstore of mine. It was a good enough excuse to pop in and see if they had the book I was looking for. They did! After reading the back cover I'm pretty excited to get bust into this one. I was a bit disappointed with his last book, Serpent of Venice, but it's not going to stop me from being excited about this one.
The author event is for the second book in his Grim Reaper Series, Secondhand Souls. Which actually comes out the day of the event. Needless to say I'm super excited for August to roll around. I'll probably have a blog post about it in the days following the event.
While I'm pretty sure I could have come out of the shop with all the books, it's a cash only bookstore, and I was the adult who budgeted this trip ahead of time. So I ended up leaving with only one other book. To be honest the cover pulled in from across the room, it's super shiny, and the back of flap sounded super cute. I think it might be a Middle Grade book, but I'm not really sure. I actually know very little about this book, and neither of my library friends had heard of it.
What I do know is that the second book comes out August 4th.
That's it, my tiny little book haul from one of my local shops. I also got some adorable postcards to send to my sister while she's away for work. Feels good to finally get another blog post up. I hope to have some reviews up soon!
