This Week In Books Or Why I'm Glad We Don't Have Earthquakes In My Part of the Country

I swear to you, one week I won't have any new books. It WILL happen.

Monday: Why I Let My Hair Grow Out arrives from a bookmoocher.

Tuesday: Matrimony arrives from author Joshua Henkin. Thanks for the referral J. Kaye!

Wednesday: The Grift arrives in a very very large stiff envelope!

Thursday: I decide to browse the friends on the library bookstore for 10 minutes between buses. I find practically brand new copies of The Other Boy and Forbidden Boy. Thought it would be fun to try this author. They are both 2 dollar and I also get one for my sister. I think I'll have to make this a weekly ritual! (Thursday is the only day it's open late enough for me to go) Also I come home to find A Great and Terrible Beauty from a bookmoocher.


Friday:
Queen of Babble in the Big City arrives from a bookmoocher.

Saturday: Alphabet Weekends arrives from a bookmoocher.

I thought this would be the end of any more bookmooch books for me for awhile. But in the past few days I've had a few mooches. Very excited!

What's new in books for you guys that aren't part of the book ban challenge?

  1. Ooh, you'll love the Gemma Doyle Trilogy!

    I am getting Wicked Lovely for my birthday later this week.

    I should also be getting Christine Fletcher's first book Tallulah Falls from PaperbackSwap.com sometime soon (she is the author of Ten Cents a Dance which I LOVED).

    As far as I know that's it for the new books this week. It's my birthday on Thursday, though, so there will be a book order in the next couple of weeks courtesy of my birthday money. :P

  2. I was gone for two weeks and came home and have four books to review... and summer work to catch up on!

    Good luck with all of them!

  5. Ambeen- I hope I love the trilogy! I was at Sam's Club today and they had all these YA books for less than 6 dollars, including Wicked Lovely which I snapped right up! Happy Birthday and yay for birthday money book orders! Those are the best!

    Gabrielle- Ooh fun! I love getting books in the mail!

    Shooting Stars Mag- Yay for contests and Violet In Private is great!

    J. Kaye- I went into Sam's Club today, doing some errands, looking around. When I was shocked to find a whole young adult section! I left with 6 books!, 5 of them YA, they were all under 6 dollars. Amazing amazing! I'm definitely taking care of business while you are on a book fast!
