Rule Breaker?

I’ve made it very clear that I’m forbidden to buy books until after Christmas and I have succeeded at that despite the fact that I have received new books during this time. How, you’re wondering? Well, I did win a book so I got something in October and there were pre-orders for each of the months leading up to Christmas that I didn’t really count, but something even more awesome happened yesterday that allowed me to buy 5 new books without breaking my rule!

One of my closest friends knows I’m a book junkie and knows how hard my book buying restraint has been. Plus, books are what she’d buy me for Christmas (and/or any holiday), but considering I have so many I want choosing herself would be difficult. So, for Christmas (and early), she sent me a 50 dollar gift card for Amazon! 50 bucks! That’s 5 new books if I plan it properly! And so I did. Here are the awesome reads I have coming my way:

::Does a Happy Dance:: I’m so excited! Christmas comes early for me 😉

Peace – Sarah

    I am SO MAD (in a totally Not-Really-Mad way lol). I was totally going to get you Nightshade for Christmas thinking “oh, well she isn’t buying anymore books before Christmas so she won’t have it yet!” But its ok, I have another book I just heard about today that comes out later this month that I know you’ll LOVE and since you aren’t going to buy any MORE books before Christmas, I’ll just get you that one! 😛 (So sweet of your friend btw!!)

    And as long as I’m acting like “let’s make this somewhat about me” I have all three books (Halo, Nightshade, & Firelight) coming up on my TBR list and the way I’m going through books lately we’ll be able to talk about them soon as we’re both done!

    Your email was awesome! Today was stupid and busy but I’m going to try to get to reply tomorrow. LOVED the clip btw, lol, that is SO us!!! :)

      As *MAD* as you might be that your Christmas gift ideas had to change, I’m so glad you let me know you were plotting something at all because I was already thinking I’d really like to at min. send my Crit Partner/Friends Christmas cards, but send them something else too… NOW I know I have to. Hehe. I won’t pretend you don’t have me totally intrigued over what you found this month book-wise… I’ve been stalking Amazon all day like a hawk fully penning my Christmas list. (FYI my wish list is like 145 books deep, but it’s public if you ever want to make sure I haven’t found something yet.)

      Now… ::taps finger to lips in thought:: what to get you? Hmmm…. 😉

      As excited as I am about NIGHTSHADE, I’m am ecstatic about FIRELIGHT for some reason. A: the cover is freaking AWESOME and B: dragon shifters – Um – WOW! I think I’m more likely to read that one first.

      So glad you agreed that clip was so us. Didn’t want to feel too imposing by saying so, but it’s a scene that plays in my head every time we email each other now. Plus that movie is seriously hilarious anyway. You must see it if you haven’t!

      Looking forward to your response tomorrow! And this post you mentioned yesterday. Where is it already? —- Oh, haha, I see you just posted. Headed there now 😛

        Actually my idea IS on your wishlist (makes me happy to know I’ve gotten to the point where I can guess what books you’d like)… not only that but I had this idea to ask you if you’d read a certain series that I LOVED but since it’s on your wishlist I’m assuming you haven’t so I might have to get you that too because that’s one we HAVE to be able to SQUEEE about! :)

        I’ll have to make a public Amazon wishlist, I’ve never considered that before except for things like baby showers and such.

          You found my wishlist? Awesome! That means it works :)

          And YES you MUST make a public wishlist, even if it’s just for me!!!!

          BTW, I’m so intrigued by what you’re plotting… I have a feeling this Christmas is going to be book-tastic!

    *ENVY*

    I’ve read so many good reviews for FIRELIGHT, HALO, and NIGHTSHADE. Lucky you, having a chance to read them! Those Dark-Hunter managas look super-cool, as well. (Mangas=awesome.)

    I really shouldn’t be too envious, though, since I have enough books in my To Read pile to keep me busy for a while, haha. Still…PRETTY BOOKS ARE PRETTY! *drool*

      Your envy is understandable. I mean I still have a decent amount of books to read that I’ve bought this year too, but it doesn’t stop me from wanting more. Just something about those beautiful things that makes you want more than you actually need 😉

      I already really wanted HALO and NIGHTSHADE, but I just recently came across FIRELIGHT and instantly fell in love with the idea, so right now that’s the one I’m most excited for. And the Dark-Hunter Mangas I’m stoked for too because A: I love the Dark-Hunters (duh) and B: The first one I got was pretty damn awesome and stopped abruptly in the middle of the story so I’ve been kind of irritable over it since. Now, I’ll finally be able to bring it to a close.

    YOU ARE TOO MUCH!!

      I told you I’d gloat and this is just the beginning. There will definitely be another post when they’re actually in my hands. You know I can’t resist the urge to photograph by beautiful babies 😉

      Thank you again, friend!

        You said you’d be forever thankful and I was still preparing myself for possible hearing that every time we spoke. I thought that there wouldn’t be a post until the pics were taken. My good deed is going very much so noticed!!

    OMG!!!!

    I have HALO as well. OMG!

    You have NIGHTSHADE? *dies of jealousy*

    OMG! OMG! Too much awesome!

      I remembered you saying great things about HALO, it’s one of the reasons I went ahead and got it. Plus, my next WIP involves angels so I figured it’d probably be a good idea to start owning some angel themed stories.

      I’m still OMG-ing about the awesome nature of this gift too. I don’t think it will die down until they’re actually in my hands and I can pet them. Even then, I’ll probably still be SQUEEing!
