Blankets by Craig Thompson
I HAD to buy this book. I didn't have a choice. My library made me give it back before I was ready to. And then I realized that I would never be ready to give it back. I wanted it to keep for always. I read it during Dewey's 24-Hour Read-a-Thon, and I'll review it once I read it again. Because I love it oh so much.
But see, the thing about Amazon is that they make you pay for shipping if you spend less than $25, so I had to find another book to buy...
Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater
I've been wanting to buy this since I read it, but, until now, I've exhibited excellent self-control. When I do splurge on brand new books, I try to buy paperback - I like reading paperbacks better (they're lighter and easier to handle) and hey, they're cheaper. But I really don't like mass market paperbacks, which according to Amazon is what Shiver will eventually be coming out in. Whether or not this is completely accurate, I don't know, but it was enough to persuade me to purchase this lovely book. I thought it went well with the blue and all about love theme. You know what else is blue about this book? The font! Love and blue. Blue and love. I love blue.
And for some more blue, I'm currently reading:
Incarceron by Catherine Fisher
