Birthday books!

I just had my birthday! And you know why I’m excited? It’s *definitely NOT* the getting older part. It’s the books part! I got an Amazon gift card and I’ve had  a great time shopping. Here’s what I got:

21eySwcHftL._SX142_SY224_SCLZZZZZZZ_The Disappearing Dowry by Libi Astaire – my pick for book club next year, YA historical mystery
In the Balance by Patricia Wentworth  apa as Danger Point
A Conspiracy of Kings by Megan Whalen Turner
Too Late the Phalarope by Alan Paton
Firefight by Brandon Sanderson
Song of the Dodo by David Quanmen

Also new by way of a thrift shop:

Girl with a Pearl Earring by Tracy Chevalier – also for book club

The Wretched of Muirwood by Jeff Wheeler

The Scourge of Muirwood

The Blight of Muirwood

0345494881.01._SX142_SY224_SCLZZZZZZZ_Can’t Wait to Get to Heaven by Fannie Flagg

The Martian by Andy Weir – for book club

 

What do you think? Did I get some good ones? Which book would you read first?

My Latest Book Haul

I got books! As you can see, I’ve also got a cat. Tina saw me take out my phone and had to get in the shot, so here she is.

I have lots of great thrift stores nearby. Usually I try to restrain myself, but this time, I bought all the books.

5 mysteries and one fiction! Strong as Death on top, that’s a historical mystery set during a pilgrimage. Then four mysteries from the same publisher. I’ve read The Lord Mayor of Death and wanted to read that one again. It’s good, very suspenseful. Not sure about the others, but they were worth a dollar!

Fannie Flagg writes HILARIOUS stuff. We read one of her books for book club last year and it was really good.

Oh, Murder and Chips is set in New Zealand. I never get mysteries set there, so this should be good. Here’s another shot of my helpful cat.

Thanks, Tina.
