Follow Friday #7


Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.


Today’s question is: Christmas in July! Someone gives you a gift card for two books (whatever that costs). What two books will you buy?

MY ANSWER:

The most obvious choice would be completing my IAD series by Kresley Cole, so Pleasure of a Dark Prince and Demon from the Dark (books 9 and 10). On the other hand, I've got around 20 books on my wishlist, so it'd probably take me a week to decide which ones to buy. However, at the moment I'd go for Farewell, My Queen by Chantal Thomas and Archangel of Mercy by Christina Ashcroft.

  10. Pleasure of a Dark Prince and Demon from the Dark are both incredible books, but wait til you get to Lothaire's book that book will blow you away.

  11. Don't you just love the idea of getting to pick any two books you want?! To me it's a little overwhelming, since I never rush into buying anything. I feel so guilty having books on my shelf that I haven't read yet, and then going and buying new ones to read first. So I would have a more difficult time of spending it. But boy, I do love gift cards!! :)

    Thanks for stopping by my FF & TGIF!

    1. I could use a gift card now, but if I actually had it I'd have trouble deciding what to buy first. I feel guilty about having unread books on my shelves, too. I actually banned myself from buying new ones until I read some of those.
