My Favorite Things Event is in celebration of my birthday. I’m going on vacation (tonight!) and wanted to put something up and I have some more goodies to giveaway! Yay! So I’m going to talk about my birthday. Which isn’t until June 29, by the way.
For my birthday in the past few years I’ve used my birthday money from my grandma and sometimes my mom, and I’ve gone to Powells, the biggest bookstore in the US, and the coolest, for sure! and I’ve bought books. Sometimes I go to Saturday Market and buy something too. Like two years ago I bought a cool purse. This year I’m not sure if I’ll be able to buy books yet, but I’ve been composing a list of books I’m DYING for. So I’m going to share that list with you guys. Just for fun. No one needs to buy me any or anything 😉
My birthday shopping is very organized. I first compose a list of books I want. Then I go to Powells.com and I find out which ones they have used and write down the cost of the books and then I sort out which ones I’m willing to pay that much for and I just narrow it down a bit, I suppose. This year I’ll be going to a Jacqueline Carey signing on the 18th so that will likely be my ‘birthday’ trip to Powells. Even though it’s the Cedar Hills Crossing branch and not the downtown branch that I love so very much. But I know I’ll be buying books then so I figure that’s about all I’ll be able to afford. So while there I’ll be buying Naamah’s Curse in hardback to be signed. And Naamah’s Kiss most likely because the copies I have are for giveaway. I may pick up a couple of others of hers as well, and I have all my copies of the Kushiel’s Legacy books to be signed too.
Here’s a few others on my WL:
An Echo in the Bone: A Novel (Outlander) by Diana Gabaldon
Would-Be Witch (A Southern Witch Novel) by Kimberly Frost
Barely Bewitched by Kimberly Frost
Thief Eyes by Janni Lee Simner
