Books I Bought

The pile of books I got this week! 

Title: Fragile Things
Author: Neil Gaiman
I am planning on reading ALL of Neil Gaiman's 
works next year so I'm currently collecting them! I
adore this edition- the dust jacket is made of
a see through, fragile paper which is a lovely touch.

Title: The Fairy Tale Detectives (The Sisters Grimm Book One)
Author: Michael Buckley
I hadn't heard of this series until I was recently introduced to
it by another book blogger and thought it looked incredible! Love the
cover too- pretty!

Titles: The Children's Crusade Vol. 1 and 2
Author: Neil Gaiman
Neil Gaiman comics found on ebay! These look interesting-
slightly Dickensian!

Title: The Book of Ballads and Sagas Vol.1
Authors: Neil Gaiman and Charles Vess
Again, a comic I found that I thought looked brilliant. It's
filled with Celtic poems and songs and folklore which
is right up my street.

Title: Black Orchid Book One
Author: Neil Gaiman
Yep- another Neil Gaiman comic. Again, don't know
too much about it but love the cover!

Title: 1602
Author: Neil Gaiman
This is a graphic novel, collecting together all the '1602'
comics and I cannot wait to read this! Superheroes in 1602? Yayyy.

Those are the books/comics that I acquired this week! Let me know what you got and link me to your mailboxes!

  12. The Sisters Grimm does look intriguing. And how fun to read all of Neil Gaiman's work. The cover of Fragile Things is gorgeous. Enjoy!

  13. Excuse me while I fangirl. I am SO ASHAMED of myself. Neil Gaiman is my favorite author of all time, and yet I have not read/heard of pretty much any of these comics!! Crazytown. I think it's funny that you just featured other cover art for Fragile Things, but that this is the edition you chose. :P

    I'm excited to hear what you think about Sister's Grimm. I heard about them only recently as well, and noticed a long stack of them on my library shelves.

  14. Neil Gaiman his books are great!

    And Sister's Grimm is such a sweet read! I've read it a while ago and posted a positive review about it. The main characters are two funny girls, not to mention all the fairytale characters! ^^

  15. The actual Ligue Magnus is actually France's top notch ice handbags league. There are numerous of Canadian delivered players within the league but the majority are from the actual french talking province associated with Quebec. For that 2009-10 period, five alumni from the Ontario Handbags League played within the Ligue Magnus.

  20. A large portion of times, this cost demonstrates as a catch and is dynamic exclusively upon first year. These loan costs would bring up without any past notification later than first year, which harms those upon the settled earnings. car title loans chicago
