If I gave you $80 and sent you into a bookshop right now, what would be in your basket when you finally staggered out the door?
Oh goodness! Well let's see. I'll figure this out considering that most paperbacks are $10 and most hardcovers are $20--we'll also pretend there is no tax ;-)
The first thing in my basket would be a receipt for $20 dollars saying I'd pre-ordered/reserved a hardcover copy of Sookie Stackhouse #11, Dead Reckoning by Charlainne Harris, which comes out this May. I LOVE me some Sookie and I have been craving some more Eric Northman. Yuummm.
Next would be Snow Flower and the Secret Fan and Shanghai Girls by Lisa See, both in paperback. I've been wanting to re-read Snow Flower for a while now (it's one of the most beautifully written books I've ever read) and Shanghai Girls has been on my 'want to purchase list.' Peony in Love, another one of her novels, is currently sitting on my shelf waiting to be read.=)
Next would be the first three novels of Kelley Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld series. I've read Bitten, the first novel, and I LOVED it, but I would want to re-read that and then continue on with the next two books to see if I liked them. All in paperback.
So that leaves me with only one book left! Holy cow! Eighty dollars isn't nearly enough!
The next book I would buy is unknown lol. I currently have such a MASSIVE tbr pile waiting for me that I simply wouldn't know what to buy because I probably already own most of everything I want to read at this current moment haha--I seriously have over 50 books lying around that are on my reading list. About 40 of those which are brand new, never been read. Sheesh! So my final choice in this blog hop bookstore would be an author I've never heard of before. I'd like to discover someone new to read. Most likely in the urban fantasy genre.
What about you? I'd like to hear what all of you would buy. Don't forget to participate in the hop. Til Monday! ;-)
