After weeks of being good at the library, I just went on a huge splurge and picked up a bunch of new reads. I've been in the mood for the chilly and the creepy, gothic reads that begin to fit this time of year. So I'm sure that it is no suprise that I was thrilled to see the RIP challenge is back (which I will be posting about later today). I picked all of these up before I even realized that this challenge was coming near which is why I'm excited to see that some of these fit right in. Don't be suprised to see the next few months filled with books fitting this genre as it is exactly what I am in the mood for lately. Plus, with the rainy dark weather that has been going on the past day and 1/2...well, who could resist?? The challenge hasn't even started yet and I'm already dying to put a bunch of books on hold (eep!). I'm so excited that it isn't even funny! And it looks like my library checkouts are about to get out of control again :)
Witchling by Yasmine Galenorn- Found this one while I was browsing at the library and I couldn't resist that cover.
I'm Watching You by Karen Rose- I've been hearing a lot about this author after reading reviews of her books on a fellow blogger's blog. It sure sounds like a good thriller with some romance thrown in.
The Sorrows of an American by Siri Hustvedt- I picked this one up solely based on the feeling that I had heard good things about it...not for sure but it does sound really good.
The Sister by Poppy Adams- This sounds SO good and will fit perfectly in with the RIP challenge.
Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn- This author's newest book has been all over the blogsphere and I decided to give this one a try first.
The Ghost and the Dead Deb by Alice Kimberly- 2nd in the cozy mystery series featuring PI Jack Shepard. I enjoyed the first book a lot so I'm looking forward to this one.
City of Bones by Cassandra Clare- Another book filled with everything that goes bump in the night or so I've heard. I'm looking forward to this one as everyone seems to enjoy this series!
Belly Laughs by Jenny McCarthy- This will probably be my only pregnancy read but it is one that I've been meaning to read since I was pregnant with my daughter.
If you have any book suggestions for me (especially a good ghost story) please share! And I love to hear your thoughts on any of these if you've read them.
