BEA'S BOOK NOOK "I can't imagine a man really enjoying a book and reading it only once." C. S. Lewis “If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.” ― Oscar Wilde

Sunday Book Share #79


 I'm participating in The Sunday Post, hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer; Showcase Sunday hosted by Books, Biscuits and Tea; Stacking the Shelves, hosted by Tynga's Reviews, and Library Loot co-hosted by The Captive Reader and Silly Little Mischief that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library. All of these memes give book bloggers the chance to share print and digital books they've received, and posts and events at their blogs.

The asthma flare had me down and out for most of the week so it was a quiet week for me. Maybe this week will be better.

I won this from the publisher, Decadent, on facebook.

Purchased - Print

Purchased - Kindle

I already own Moon Called and The Gathering in print but the Kindle books were on sale for $2.99 and $1.99 respectively and I couldn't resist. I have an eARC of It's Always Been You but I bought a finished copy, because it's Jessica. :) See my review and an excerpt of It's Always Been You here. Love and Diamonds was half-price at Smashwords last week.


This is for a blog tour in May.
