a smallish haul for January

Considering that January is my birthday month, I think I did quite good limiting myself to only 8 books. Okay, 9 books if you count one re-purchase. Trust me, it could have (and probably should have) been worse...

Just Jane and How Do I Love Thee? by Nancy Moser

Okay, honestly, I picked these up mostly because I love the covers. I have never read historical fiction like this, but I'm willing to give it a shot. And they were buy two, get one free. So, I picked them up with another book in the next picture.

Knit the Season by Kate Jacobs and If I Stay by Gayle Forman

Since I picked up The Friday Night Knitting Club last month, I've been on the look out for the rest of the series so I can read the books. And really, who hasn't heard of Gayle Forman's books. Finally going to give her books a shot.

Fatal Tide by Iris Johansen and How to Marry a Millionaire Vampire by Kerrelyn Sparks

So, I've already read Fatal Tide, but I'm pretty sure I only own it in hardcover. In a collection made up entirely of paperbacks, it sticks out like a sore thumb. For that reason, I went ahead and picked up a paperback edition. And it is in decent condition. I think I'm starting a Kerrelyn Sparks collection. This is the third book from her Love at Stake series that I picked up. 

Somebody to Love by Lori Wilde and Silencing Eve by Iris Johansen

Hooray for continuing a series! Yes, I am well aware that I already read and reviewed Somebody to Love, but I have a book OCD. If I have any previous books in paperback, I must continue to pick up new books so the entire series will be pretty on my bookcase. This only happens for books I already own. Of course I had to pick up Silencing Eve to add to my giant Iris Johansen collection.

That's my haul for January! I also picked up a 2nd copy of Nora Robert's Happily Ever After simply because this copy was in excellent condition and I couldn't remember how my other copy looked. Which ever copy looks better will stay and I'll donate the other.
