Book Roundup (12) - November 18, 2012

Merriam-Webster defines 'roundup' as a gathering in of scattered persons or things (source)

Replace 'persons or things' with 'BOOKS!' and you'll have what happens in my house every week as I try to keep control of my hoard :)

This week I got…

For Review:
February 5, 2013 from Strange Chemistry
WHY? I think this one's about a mysterious circus in a fantasy setting - count me in :)

March 5, 2013 from Strange Chemistry
WHY? Hidden family legacies with paranormal twists - sounds great!

February 5 2013 from Feirwel and Friends
WHY? My daughter and I love reading together and this one looked very cute.

WHY? Picture books that teach something are always a plus with me.

Bought:
by Brayan Lee O'Malley
WHY? I was introduced to the movie Soctt Pilgrim by my boyfriend - never knowing that it's awesomeness came from a series of graphic novel / mangas written by O'Malley. If you liked the movie, you'll love these books!

WHY? Um...zombies! Gotta say though - I was a fan of this cover when I first saw it but upclose the girl looks way too old to be the Alice in the story...and it's another girl in a dress which got old a long time ago...ok...why did I like this cover? Oh yeah - does't matter - zombies!

WHY? Already read (and reviewed) the ARC but I needed a pretty finished copy for my shelves. The dust jacket of this one is all soft and soothing...nothing like the book!

WHY? So it's the 3rd in a series of a series I haven't even started yet...but it's part of Riordan's Olympus series and I already have books 1 and 2 in hardcover and it looked so pretty in the store and - don't judge me!

WHY? I *might* already own a signed copy of this one but THIS one is a COLLECTOR'S EDITION! Short story, poster, faction tattoos - come on? How could I resist? (you're judging me again aren't you?)

WHY? If you want to be actually thrilled and terrified by a book - read this series.

WHY? Been wanting this one for a while now and I'm supper happy they didn't redesign the cover for the paperback because I loooooove it!
