New Additons to the shelf

Book buying on overseas trips seems to be developing into a habit. During the last two business trips to Taipei and Shanghai, I ended up browsing in the bookstores (again!) at the airport to pass the time, and landed these additions to the shelf:

The Last Empress by Anchee Min

Not Another Bad Date by Rachel Gibson (another littleblackdress book)

New Additons to the shelf  New Additons to the shelfIt wasn’t for lack of trying.  In fact, I barely resisted adding some of the interesting new authors, after failing to locate the new releases from Nalini Singh, Jacquelyn Frank and Kresly Cole. It helped that there was limited space in my luggage, thus limiting the damage additional books would have done to my wallet.

Upon return, however, I gratified the inner itch of acquisition with these fab finds:

The Lost Duke of Wyndham by Julia Quinn (the Piatkus edition)  – hmm, love the cover

Eldest by Christopher Paolini

Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen

A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks

New Additons to the shelfI’ve been hearing so much about Nicholas Sparks, and quite a number of his books have been turned into movies, the latest of which is Nights in Rodanthe, so I finally caved and bought Walk to Remember. As for the rest, they were purely impulse buys.
