This Week In Books Or OMG YAY FOR YA!


Monday: 


TTYL came from bookmooch and The Teashop Girls for review (Waiting on Wednesday post here)! Recently I've heard that people literally hate TTYL  and don't think teens, maybe it was junior high kids should read it so I finally caved and requested it, just have to know what the fuss is all about!

Tuesday:


I Heart You, You Haunt Me came from bookmooch!

Wednesday: nothing

Thursday:


Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puff came from bookmooch while the other three books came from my weekly Friends of the Library store stop. This week everything was 50 percent off! I paid 38 cents for each of these books, I'm not joking! I had never heard of Marly's Ghost before it sounds really cool though!

Friday:


I went to Borders to buy a gift and happened to remember I had $5 Borders bucks so I used it to buy this book for myself which was on clearance for $5 making it free!

Saturday:


Switch came from bookmooch from Sharon! And Cracked Up to Be via LibraryThing's Early Reviewer's Program!

What books did you get this week?

  1. I've not actually read Marly's Ghost yet, but since it's by David Levithan it's probably amazing.

  2. Well, of course I recommend Cam Dokey's book as she is a sister RoCom writer. Also, anything and everything by Lauren Myracle RAWKS.
    I'm reading WHAT I SAW AND HOW I LIED. Good stuff!

  8. You already know what I got this week so I'll only mention the one I think I didn't tell you about. A Spot of Bother by Mark Haddon came from a PaperBackSwap member. :D

  13. I read TTYL and I understand why people are making a fuss about it, but I read it in middle school, it isn't that bad of a book. As for the other books, I am jealous they all look so good.
