Recently Acquired:

covers of books Isa recently gotIsa: I actually have more than enough books on my TBR and in my shelves and on my kindle, but I just can’t stay away! A couple of years ago some dear friends online got me to watch The Room with them (a truly terrible film) and last year Greg Sestero, who plays Mark in the film, released The Disaster Artist, which chronicles the making of said film and the years he spent getting to know Tommy Wiseau. I actually got this book shortly after our last Buttercup post and I’ve been slowly getting through it ever since. Still not finished, I’m afraid. Tommy Wiseau’s kind of crazy is a tad overwhelming and I need to take breaks between reading or I’ll go mad. But it’s oh so entertaining! (And slightly terrifying. Just how did Greg Sestero actually survive being Tommy’s friend?!) Other than that, I also stumbled across Witch for Hire by N.E. Conneely. I don’t even remember how I found it, but the summary sounds very interesting!

Covers of books Ren just gotRen: Like Isa, I already have more than enough books on my TBR but when I see new titles I can’t resist. I completely missed this when listing April released in last month’s Buttercup post, but Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins came out last week. I liked Hawkins’ Hex Hall series and so I picked this up without even looking at the reviews. It’s a Paranormal YA so I’ll either love it or hate it… let’s hope it’s the former! I also got Promise of Blood by Brian McClellan because I needed a fix of epic fantasy and the idea of a fantasy set in the Industrial Era instead of the usual Middle Ages appealed to me. Now I just need to make time and read them…
