The Other Bolyn Girl

By Phillipa Gregory. Been waiting a long time to get my hands on this. I have already seen the movie, but I am still interested to read the book. I love this time era and especially the stories surrounding King Henry the 8th.

The Last Wife of King Henry the VIII

By Carolly Erickson. Just like The Other Bolyn Girl it’s this same era and another telling of the story. Found out about this book about a week or two ago. I had entered a giveaway for it but didn’t win. The book souded interesting and I happened to find it yesterday. Happy I did.

Complete Grimm’s Fairy Tales

Another book I’ve been thinking about recently. Finally found it at an independent bookstore. Which is where I got all three of these books by the way. I do plan on reading all of these fairy tales maybe I will do tiny reviews on the individual fairy tales. Who knows. Excited for all of the books I’ve gotten recently.

Sisters Red

By Jackson Pierce. A retelling of Red Riding Hood. I am excited for this book and have been waiting to get my hands on it for a long, long time. I received this book from someone in Guam via Paperbackswap.

by Andrea Kremer. I bought this book from Barnes and Noble with a gift card that I got for Christmas. I’ve heard good things about this series so I thought I would give it a try.

DarkFever (Adult)

by Karen Marie Moning. I’ve heard good things about this series from my romance blogging friends.

by Gregory Maquire. I’ve seen & heard about this series for awhile, and I found it for about three dollars each. Figured I couldn’t go wrong.

The Virgin Lover

by Philippa Gregory. I love this period in history and I’ve been watching shows and reading about it for awhile. I’ve heard good things about Gregory’s writing so I’m looking forward to reading some of her books.

The Kite Runner

by Khaled Hosseini. I’ve been planning on getting this book for awhile and found it for about four dollars and bought it.

Fahrenheit 451

by Ray Bradbury. I found it at an old bookstore, I loved the bookstore and plan on going back. Excited to finally have a copy of this book and plan on reading it sometime this year.
