Just One Day by Gayle Forman
No One Else Can Have You by Kathleen Hale
Allegiant by Veronica Roth
Angelfall by Susan Ee
The Waking Dark by Robin Wasserman


I’ve been good on my book buying ban. I only bought Allegiant, which I gave myself a exception for at the beginning of the month. I did end up with some library books though:

Borrowed from the Library:

The Waking Dark by Robin Waserman
Angelfall by Susan Ee
A Long, Long Sleep by Anna Sheehan

I also picked up the audiobook of Legend to potentially play at work. I’m not normally a fan of audiobooks, but we’ll see.

  1. Exceptions are what make book buying bans possible!!

    I’ve never been able to concentrate on audio books. I even borrowed all the Harry Potters from the library, put them on my iPod, and tried to listen to them on long drives, but I kept getting distracted and turning on music instead. Then at work, work distracts me from the story. They are really good for days at home when you’re doing chores though. Cleaning the bathroom isn’t so bad when you’re listening to Dumbledore talk about Horcruxes.

      Exactly! Plus, I’ve been pretty darn good through most of October.
      Yeah, I’m not a huge audiobook person either, so we’ll see. I read pretty fast, so my natural tendency is to think, “but. . . but I could read this myself so much FASTER and BETTER.” But chores & sometimes I have to do really repetitive things for work–like fill out a bunch of forms over & over again–so I think with task like that, I’d probably be able to listen to the story.

  2. I bought a book this week too. I think it is the first fiction book that I bought for over $5 in a really long time. It was Parasite by Mira Grant.

      Ah, well I have to confess to occasionally buying books full-price, but I try not to. Curious as to what you think about parasite–I’ve heard only good things about Mira Grant’s writing.

      • I typically don’t reread books and I live in a 1 bedroom with my husband and cat, so it makes better sense at least right now to borrow books from the library or get e-books. In our dream house, my hubby and I do want a library that we can fill up with SF&F (for me) and D&D books (for him). 🙂

        I read Feed earlier this year by her, and it was awesome. It is hands down one of my favorite books of the year. I did the audio book, and it was really well done.
