New Books!

This is a big New Books listing, because my Christmas giftcard order came in! Yay! Of course, now I have the (very happy) problem of figuring out what to read next ... My To Read List (*cough*stack*cough*) is sort of on the huge side right now, but thanks to having a three-week break from work, I've been able to make a small dent on it! Here's hoping that progress continues when the semester gets rolling next week ... Now, without further ado, a list of my "box of happy"!

((ps: I wanted to take a picture of the whole stash of books, but not feeling coaxing blogger into uploading 'real' photo(s) once I get 'em uploaded onto the computer ... I've lost too many techie battles this week. Maybe I can get one and add it later.))

  • Wookie Cookies: A Star Wars Cookbook (Robin Davis)
    • Um, hello? How could I not get this one? I've been drooling over it since I saw it during Chronicle Books' Happy Haul-idays contest!
  • A Nest for Celeste (Henry Cole)
    • This one is simply beautiful.
  • Hank the Cowdog and the Quest for the Great White Quail (John R. Erickson)
    • My family has a long, strange history with Hank the Cowdog...
  • Rose Daughter (Robin McKinley)
    • I love Beauty and the Beast stories, and have fallen for Robin McKinley's books.
  • Pegasus (Robin McKinley)
    • Had to own this one. Hands-down.
  • Prom and Prejudice (Elizabeth Eulberg)
    • I hear many good things, and the cover definitely catches my attention. 
  • The Lonely Hearts Club (Elizabeth Eulberg)
    • Been wanting to read it for a year, library never bought it, so I did.

  • Beauty and the Beast soundtrack

  • The Complete Photo-Guide to Crochet
    • I decided, this week, to teach myself to crochet. Checked out 7 books from the library to piece together an understanding, and then found this by chance at HobbyLobby. Best. Crochet. Book. Yet. Now I'm a hooking Queen! Well, learning anyway.


  1. Wow...looks like you got quite a "list" (LOL) of goodies there. ^_^ What's this? Do I see a copy of DASH & LILY? -checks again- Ah ha! I do! Here's hoping you enjoy it as much as I did (and my friends, and every other bookish person I can recommend it too...hehe). Happy reading!

  2. Yay! I concur with Gina...so happy to see Dash & Lily on this list! You will absolutely adore it, as well as quite a few others on your list! Wahoo!
