Exploring My Bookshelves (#11)

Exploring My Bookshelves is a weekly meme created over here at Addlepates and Book Nerds. For more info on how it works, have a look here

Exploring My BookshelvesThis week I want to know…

Books you bought the instant they were released

I thought I avoided this pretty well. But as I was going through my shelf, I realised I do it too often! These are only some of the books:

Exploring My Bookshelves #12

They’re all books that are the last (or nearly the last) in series I adore.

Artemis Fowl and the Atlantis Complex by Eoin Colfer

Silver Shadows and The Ruby Circle by Richelle Mead

Last Stand of Dead Men and Armageddon Out Of Here by Derek Landy

I also forgot the Deathly Hallows, which I remember having to get two copies of (one for a friend) and reading just behind my mum so she could check that it wasn’t too violent for me. There’s a great picture of us both cuddled up in bed the day it came out.

ALSO, I am so sorry about last week! I posted the thing a week early, and I got confused and panicked last week. Oops 😛 But we’re back on track now, don’t you worry! 🙂

Anyway, there are mine! What are yours? Are you a book orderer, or a spontaneous buyer? Don’t forget to add your link!



I was a book blogger for a while, and I now blog about every little thing in life I can think of. Bear with me while I try all these new posts out... I'm a New Zealand teen who gets angry about the world (but not angry enough for tumblr). I like to capture the world through photos and words, and read in all the moments in nz-squadbetween. I have an overwhelming desire to see every corner of the world I possibly can, and hug the people I love in all those corners. I can't do make up to save myself, and you're more likely to find me buying matching stationary than matching clothes. My nerd hobbies include a new found love of the Avengers, reading YA, watching Game of Thrones, How I Met Your Mother, and every vlogger I can find, and being the last person on the music bandwagons. I have big plans for the rest of my life, including university, teaching, travelling, and having an army of puppies. I plan to blog every second of it!
