Had a bit of a book splurge this week, as hubby won the Euro Millions, well he won £90 on the Euro Millions and once I had bought the girl's some new swimming costumes, lunch and some Christmas stamps to make Christmas cards with, I had enough money left to get some cheap books. The bottom three were three books for a fiver, from a wonderful English shop we have called The Works.
1) The Vampire's Assistant by Darren Shan. This actually contains the first three books from the series about vampires and I have been wanting to read this for ever.
2) The Haunting of James Hastings by Christopher Ransom ( of The Birthing House fame) another scary book for the Halloween season.
3) The Frost Fair by Edward Marston - this book is set in London in 1669 and shows London when the Thames used to freeze over and markets stalls would be set up on it. It is a murder mystery, where London architect Christopher Redmayne and his friend, Constable Jonathan Bale find a body in the Thames and they must prove that Redmayne's brother was not involved.
The other three books are the first three books in Charlaines Harris's series. The books tell the story of Harper Connelly who had a lucky escape when she was hit by lightning and lived to tell the tale. But sometimes she wishes she had died, because the lightning strike left her with an unusual talent: she can find dead people.Just my cup of tea!
So they are my new books this week, what did you get?
