I bought The Mysterious Affair at Styles by Agatha Christie. It's her first book and I don't know how I haven't read it yet :D I love her.

I just purchased 2 new books via Amazon 3rd party sellers.

The Swans of Fifth Avenue: A Novel.
By Melanie Benjamin.

Growing Up Amish: The Rumspringa Years. By Richard A. Stevick.

They both look intriguing and exciting in their own ways. Happy reading!

The Familiar, by Mark Z. Danielewski. I'm desperate to get the following volumes in this series but the books are so huge and at the moment the apartment I'm living in is too small, already overflowing with books ... As soon as I move I'll have space to fill up with his series. Annoying that space dictates something like this :p

Wires and Nerve Volume 2 by Marissa Meyer. I just can't help myself when she publishes something new. I've only been mildly disappointed by one of her novels and am thoroughly in love with all the others. Hands down my favorite author so I'll buy anything she publishes.

Take back the Skies by Lucy Saxon. I bought it on the spur of the moment for airplane and ended up profoundly disliking it :lol:

Faefever by Karen Marie Moning. I loved the first book in the series, now I'm on the fence about the rest of them.
