I don't normally do two library runs in a week. Mostly because it just puts a lot of books in our house, which is saying something considering the amount of books we own. Well, that I own. My flatmate is a little more picky about the books she's buys. Me, I shop for books like a squirrel. So anything pretty or mildly interesting generally makes it home. I digress from the point. Anyway, I got an e-mail today that two books I've been waiting for had arrive: Warren the 13th and New Hunger. So I made an exception to my rule because I didn't want to wait. Which mean things I should be reading will wait until I finish New Hunger, but whatever.
However, all of this leads into a funny story which I tell after I show the entire haul!
Baba Yaga's Assistant is another one of those Goodreads finds that sounds super cute and fun library read.
Warren the 13th I have wanted to get my hands a copy of this books since I stumbled across it, again via Goodreads. In fact I have entered to win every single copy I could, but sometimes you can't win them all. So I've been waiting patiently for it to be my turn to get from the library. Today was the day, so I added the library to my list of errands. Came home to discover a surprise package from Quirk Books sitting in my mail box. I enter to win a lot of things to review here on My Book Life that I usually forget some of them. So I juggle everything into the house and tear open the package. There sitting in my it's envelope is Warren the 13th. So currently there are two copies sitting my house. One is on my TBR pile by my bed and the other in the pile of things my flatmate is taking back to the library with her this weekend. If only I would have checked the mail first.
The New Hunger is a book I've been wanting a physical copy of since the ebook was published. I'm not a big ebook reader, it's just not my thing. Which means I've missed on some things, but Issac Marion did something lovely and put a book form the prequel to Warm Bodies. So this book has made it to the top of my TBR. It's a sorry, not sorry kind of situation.
Inklings is another book I've been wanting to read since I heard about it's release. Two of the authors I adore: J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis. However I don't honestly know much about either. As for the other two authors, Owen Barfield and Charles Williams, I don't know anything about them or their work. Hoping it'll be an interesting read that adds some things to my TBR pile.
Twisted Fairy Tales is another Goodreads stumbled upon book that sounded a little creepy.
Fantastic Fugitives is sort of my weakness when it comes to books. Anything set up like this I will buy and/or add on the spot. Little books of random pieces of history told and a humorous manner, I'm sold.

So this post ended up much larger than I planned. Mostly because when I woke up this morning this haul wasn't planned. Thus why I'm calling it "Part Two". An add on to this week's early haul.
