New books (+ 24 hour book sale!)

I mentioned that over Christmas I got a few new books – time to show them off!



The latest dramas of the witty Stephanie Plum! Yes, there are more cars exploding. Yes, there is more tension in the Stephanie-Ranger-Morelli love triangle.  Yes, Grandma Mazur and Lula are still hilarious.  What more can you expect from this series! Still my favourite series ever, and I was stoked to be able to buy it with some Christmas vouchers.  In this book Stephanie goes back to work for Ranger, and what starts as purely a job ends with her life in danger, as always, but also with her wearing a ridiculous bridesmaids dress!  On top of that she’s trying to find out more about patients disappearing from hospital beds, which gets her working with both Morelli and Randy Briggs, who finds he’s small enough to fit into a mail chute.  Add in some time at an embarrassing nudist beach, and a tiki that keeps bringing bad luck, and you’ve got another awesome read.

I couldn’t put it down – I read the whole thing in one sunny afternoon! Highly recommended, as always.

This is the latest instalment in the Women’s Murder Club series.  I admit I haven’t read any of these books yet, but I’m collecting them so that I can read them all through from number one – just haven’t found that one yet!  The blurb says “Detective Lindsay Boxer finally gets married.  But a missing newborn and a series of violent attachs push the Women’s Murder Club back to full throttle before the wedding gifts are even unwrapped.” (Apparently I have a thing for buying books that mention weddings at the moment!).  Really looking forward to starting this series.

This book was a bargain – $3.50 at a clearance sale!

“Welcome to 77 Shadow Street… where every 38 years a terror descends.  December 1897 – A family abducted, never to be found.  December 1935 – A household slaughtered in their beds.  December 1973 – Terrified workmen see a glimpse of hell.  December 2011 – Is 77 Shadow Street destined to be a death house once more?  This is not a ghost story.  It is something scarier by far.”  While I sometimes find Koontz’s work a little overrun with adjectives, this looks like a gripping tale.

This was a bargain too – also $3.50 at the clearance sale!

I picked this up while browsing one day, and flicking through it I found his interview with Audrey Hepburn! Looking further I found transcripts with Heath Ledger, Oprah, Jodi Foster, Madonna and Michael Crawford, among others.  Can’t wait to get into this! Though I’ll probably just pick it up occasionally and read an interview at a time, since the book is too heavy to cart around easily!

This was my biggest bargain – I originally saw it in a store on sale for $40 (down from $50), so I wrote it down to keep an eye out for it, only to find it at the same clearance sale for $7!
