From Half Price Books
They had coupons this past week so my friend and I went to 4 different locations and bought a bunch of different books and this is what I found...
These are the hardbacks I got
 My friend that I was with told me this was a good book that I had to read
 Wanted to get the 1st 2 books in HB for when I get them signed
The 2nd book in the series, still haven't read the 1st book yet

The qualities paperbacks

I have been seeing a lot about the Bitter Frost series, so I just decided to pick up what they had
3) An ARC of Moonlasgs by Jessi Kirby
I am intrigued by it  Releases May 3, 2011
I love her YA line of retold fairy tales
Currently reading
They were signed copies and they sound interesting

I want to get all of these books for when I have kids, I loved them growing up. I already have Sleeping Beauty, Lion King, 101 Dalmatians, Little Mermaid, Aladdin, and The Prince and the Pauper. I still have many more to get.

1925 copy of Grimm's Fairy Tales, I love old copies of these books!
 And it has beautiful pictures, I just couldn't pass it up

From Amazon
Since I filled up my husband gas tank with premium gas he owed me, so I got 3 books (the other will be here on Tuesday)
My only adult book I got this week :)

Did you see the video that Leah Clifford did of her books moving around using stop motion, it is so cool! She also has a contest going on her website, I would love to get a signed copy :)  

Yes I did spend a pretty little penny, but it was all saved up tip money that I used. 

Is there any books that I got that you are interested in?

Happy reading.

@Bella, I'm hoping for a signed copy too. I was excited to find braced to bite and signed.

@Sally I can't wait to read Peach Keeper I love her books. I actually picked them up by chance, when I use to work at Borders I got an ARC of Garden Spells and Sugar Queen and I loved them. Now I keep an eye out for every one of her books.
