Book Haul From Two Places (Yeah, That’s Right)

Okay so I got these four lovelies from two different places. The first set I got from The Dollar Tree and the second set of books my mom got me from a book event in Frankenmuth, Michigan.

The first book I got from The Dollar Tree :

 

The Queen of the Night by [Chee, Alexander]

So this one I just loved the cover, so I had to see what the story was about and it just fascinated me. It just kind of reminded me of The Phantom of the Opera even though I have never read that but have heard of it. Sadly, I was made to watch the movie in school as an assignment so I don’t have the pleasure of reading it first, but I would like to someday when I get my hands on a copy.

 

The second book from The Dollar Tree:

I know, I know, I did the dreaded get a book in the middle of the series thing! Someone please smack my damn wrist because I keep doing this and it’s driving me up the wall. It sounded good though, damn it all to hell, so I got it and of course it naturally has 4+ books in the series. Just. My. Luck.

 

So apparently they were giving out some free books at the book even where my mom and her friend Valerie went and so she got me two books.

They were both signed, however, one of the authors signed my mom’s name so I am assuming that something didn’t go right and this kind author just wrote the name from my mom’s name tag. Something must have gotten mixed up.

Here is what the author said: “Tracy, Look for the good in the stars.” – Victoria Perkins

So you see that would have been really cool if it would have been no name or my name but it has her name so I’m like what..? Anyway, it’s still fucking awesome that the author signed it, but damn. So close, yet so far…

Here is what the book looks like:

The Twelve (The Star Riders Book 1) by [Perkins, Victoria]

Isn’t the cover just beautiful and magnificent, I mean damn son. But then again I am a sucker for green and I love the detail of the wings, so they just got me here.

 

Second book from the book event:

Outpost 13 (Desolace Series) by [Barnes, Lucian]

This is not my fault that it is the third one in the series. I REPEAT: NOT MY FAULT. The first two books were gone. There were none left so I naturally got this one, no need to slap my wrist this time, I swear (obviously).

What the author signed into the book was badass: “In the shadows. Monsters Lurk. I am their master.” – Lucian Barnes

I mean, Damn. Damn.

There are only a few other authors I can think of at the top of my head who would say something similar but only most would know of The King.
