Mini Half-Price Haul

Alright, it has been a while since my apartment mate and I went to Half-Price and we were feeling a bit deprived. Not to mention, we saw a trailer for the movie if i stay, which looks amazing, and we felt the need to find the book and read it before the movie comes out (as all good readers know to do). Anyways, my apartment mate ended up purchasing it, so we have a copy, and I think that she has nearly finished it already.
I wanted to share with you my mini-haul of the week, totaling for $17!

1. A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin. In case you don't know, I'm a mere 105 pages away from finishing the first book in this brilliant series by George R.R. Martin, so I decided to not wait and purchase the second book in the series. Even though I have not seen the TV series and have barely finished the first book, it is already very clear to me that this series is going to be one of those that will make my head spin and I will love every moment of it. Ok, minus when I started to randomly (in the view of others) scold the author for breaking my heart and killing another one of my favorite characters or the characters for being stupid, but still, the book would not be the same without that! My most expensive book of the haul, but I think $8 was worth it!

2. The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein. Who would not love a book written from the point of man's best friend? Yes, my friends, another book written from the POV of a dog! Rejoice and enjoy!

3. Shakespearean Detectives: Murders and Mysteries Based on Shakespeare's Life and Plays edited by Mike Ashley. This book was more purchased out of curiosity....I love Shakespeare and I really have a hard time passing up anything that has to do with him and/or murder mysteries. Seems like a perfect marriage right?

4. The Templar Legacy by Steven Berry. I had tried to check this book out of the library only to learn that my library card was not accepted in that county :( It made me very sad and when I saw this in the clearance section I couldn't say no. I do love my medieval literature, fiction and not!

What books have you been reading lately?
