Piling Up on Friday (on Monday)


I was sad when I realised I'd missed this meme on Friday, especially since it was a big week for me in terms of book buying. But then today I saw that Finding Your Gibbee was late posting hers, too, so what the heck! I'll just do it a few days late!

So these are the books I added to my TBR pile last week. I'm just going to write a list, no pictures, because there are just too many of them!

Bought when there was a sale on at the local Pagan shop:
  • Women Who Run With the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype by Clarissa Pinkola Est├ęs
  • A Morning Cup of Tai Chi: One 15-Minute Routine to Nurture Your Body, Mind, and Spirit by John A. Bright-Fey
Children's Hospital Book Sale books (this is my downfall...):
  • The Road to Dune by Frank Herbert, Brian Herbert, and Kevin J. Anderson
  • The Butlerian Jihad (Legends of Dune #1) by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson
  • The Machine Crusade (Legends of Dune #2) by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson
  • The Battle of Corrin (Legends of Dune #3) by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson
  • Vincalis the Agitator by Holly Lisle (I bought this because I read Diplomacy of Wolves like a decade ago and loved it [though I was in junior high at the time so I don't really remember it], and I JUST NOW realised that this is a prequel to that series!)
  • Starrise at Corrivale by Diane Duane (because the Young Wizards series is SO GOOD that I must read everything she has written)
  • After Human by Michael Cross (You know I've been at a book sale for too long when I start actually browsing and getting things by authors I've never heard of. Bad for the towering pile!)
  • The Witches of Worm by Zilpha Keatley Snyder (One of these days I'll write about how The Egypt Game changed my life.)
  • Scream of the Haunted Mask (Goosebumps Horrorland #4) by R.L. Stine
  • The Ooze (Ghosts of Fear Street #8) by R.L. Stine
  • Don't Ever Get Sick at Granny's (Ghosts of Fear Street #16) by R.L. Stine
  • Invasion of the Body Squeezers, Part 2 (Goosebumps Series 2000 #5) by R.L. Stine
  • Fright Camp (Goosebumps Series 2000 #8) by R.L. Stine
  • Attack of the Graveyard Ghouls (Goosebumps Series 2000 #11) by R.L. Stine
  • Return to Horrorland (Goosebumps Series 2000 #13) by R.L. Stine
  • The Haunted Car (Goosebumps Series 2000 #21) by R.L. Stine
  • Tales to Give You Goosebumps: 10 Spooky Stories by R.L. Stine
  • Even More Tales to Give You Goosebumps: 10 Spooky Stories by R.L. Stine
  • Still More Tales to Give You Goosebumps: 10 Spooky Stories by R.L. Stine
The last half of that list probably looks a bit weird... One of these days I'll also write about my R.L. Stine thing!

Library books:
  • MWF Seeking BFF: My Yearlong Search for a New Best Friend by Rachel Bertsche
  • The Autobiography of Malcolm X, as told to Alex Haley
So, yeah. It's a good thing those book sales only come a few times a year. I lose all self-control. Basically any progress I've made on my TBR pile since starting this blog has just been cancelled out. But on the bright side, look at all the pretties!! :) Anywho, I'm now back on no-buy mode for at least the rest of February, and probably March, too. I will get this pile under control!
