Megan Likes (New) Books
Megan Likes (New) Books is a personalize weekly meme inspired by In My
Mailbox, Stacking the Shelves and Book Haul where I show off the new
books and bookish items I've received lately.
I'm sad to say that this week I fell off the book-buying-ban wagon. There's a story behind it and the moral is basically not to go to Chapters. To start things off, I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of Sapphire Blue by Kerstin Gier from Macmillan. Yay! But that meant that I needed to go pick up a copy of Ruby Red (book 1). This falls within one of the loopholes I built into the ban: I can buy books if they belong to a series that I already own a book from. So a trip to Chapters was in order. I was doing really well, ogling some pretty books nearby, but not being tempted. I almost made it past the sale table when I saw it. A hardback cover of The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer for $6. I've been wanted to read this one for ages, especially with The Evolution of Mara Dyer coming out. It was the last one on the table and I caved.
I'm back on the wagon now and finding it hard to feel too guilty.

Still creeping up. Ruby Red and Sapphire Blue are next on my list though and I'm hoping to make a dent during Christmas holidays.
