I've seen Hamlette (plus a few others!) participate in this meme and haven't really felt the need to join in before. But as I happened to stumble upon a Books-A-Million this past Saturday whereupon I discovered a copy of a certain book that she and I both love (and I also happen to know she owns this particular copy as well) I just had to share. And hope that she doesn't mind that I now own the exact same cover and bookmark as she! They were simply so lovely, that I couldn't leave them there.
See? Isn't that cover a beauty?! I love it. It also has those awesome uneven edges, which means that I love the feel of them in my hands. To be quite honest, I'd completely forgotten that Hamlette owned a copy of that bookmark as well, until I came home and checked her post about it. Ah well. You have awesome taste, Hamlette! So please take this as a compliment! :)
I also happened to attend a used book sale that very same day and the above stack is what I came home with. I've been wanted a physical copy of Seraphina for a while now (I have it on my kindle), and was beyond excited to find this one for $1. That's right! One whole dollar, people! :D I already own The Near Witch in hardback, but I couldn't just leave that one on the shelf. So maybe a giveaway should happen in the near future? Anybody interested?
Rachel has exclaimed for years about The Blue Castle, so now I have no excuse for not reading it! :) I now own The Scarlet Pimpernel too, for reasons that'll get explained in another post. Rest assured they are fabulous reasons though!!!
So! What books have you added to your shelves recently?
