Weekend Wrap-Up: I'm a naughty book buyer-In my mailbox and in my hot little hands!

Hi guys! So I've got a few book prezzies over the past few weeks that I thought I would share with you all. First off is Lover Mine - I won this book at Smexy's blog and am making my way through the whole BDB series so that I can enjoy this book soon! I also won an ARC of Demon Blood at Meljean Brook's blog - I've only read a novella by Meljean (from the Must Love Hellhounds anthology) - and I loved it so I'm looking forward to checking out more of her Guardian series. My other book prezzies include Tsunami Blue by Gayle Ann Williams and Immortal Warrior by Lisa Hendrix.

So...I've been a very naughty girl. On Ilona Andrews blog last week (one of my favorite authors!) she (though I think it was Gordon who did the post) mentioned that it was okay for readers to buy Magic Bleeds (her new release coming out May 25th) before the release date. Some of her readers were asking her about whether or not it was okay to buy the book before the release date (since it's better to wait till release date for best-sellers lists) and being the great Kate Daniels Popes they are they absolved their readers of early purchasing guilt. So I thought to myself..huh..that means some bookstores have put it on shelves early and I really really want the book.. so I casually checked out one..or maybe three bookstores and found it! Yeah! Am I a bad reader for not waiting till the release date...maybe.. but I am also a very happy reader.
I figured since Magic Bleeds features some very nasty diseases I would have my giant microbes welcome the book home. That's Salmonella on the left hand side with it's cute flagella along with Herpes (the sun looking microbe) and MRSA (Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus). So me and my giant microbes are going to kick back and enjoy some Kate Daniels!

Oh man, I need to run around and see if anyone has put Magic Bleeds on the shelves in my town. It's always a thrill to find a book before the release date, although I understand bookstores can take some heat for doing that. There's a lot of uproar at one store for putting out The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest weeks before the release date.
