Book Retail Threapy (2)
Last night instead of finishing off Incarceron, like I was planning on, I went to a Mardi Gras parade instead! I did not go anywhere near New Orleans. I know most people associate New Orleans with Mardi Gras often, but its not all that great. Mandeville is the closest I plan to get at this point. To many bad things happen there on a regular basis for me to muster up the courage to go. I had a fantastic time with my friend Meghan! Let me paint a picture for you. Imagine me (five foot three hyper active thing) jumping up and down screaming for costume beads with alcohol in my hand, a pimpin' Mardi Gras sparkle hat on my head, and a white feather boa on my shoulders. Bad ass, right? That was a much needed break from drama, school, and boyfriend. I ended up going to bed at one thirty in the morning and woke up at seven sharp, got dressed, said good-bye to Meghan, and hit Wal-*-Mart at eight. I was returning something originally, but I couldn't help myself to quickly checking the book aisle.
I ended up walking away with Awakened and Burned by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, and The Morganville Vampires Volume 1 with Glass Houses and The Dead Girls Dance by Rachel Canie.
I also got lucky the other night (not that kind of lucky) and won Dead Space: Martyr by B. K. Evenson from goodreads first read giveaways!
new books I ordered would get to my mail box already. Its been nine days since Nightshade and The White Darkness were shipped, according to the tracking order from bookdepository, only five since Falling Under was shipped, and they're still not in my hands yet! :(
I hope everyone is enjoying themselves this weekend, and if any of you plan on getting down with the Mardi Gras Spirit have fun and be safe!
