This Week In Books Or A Pretty Conservative Week, For Me!

Monday: no mail day!


Kiss My Book by Jaimie Michaels
King Dork by Frank Portman

Kiss My Book came from the awesome Vanessa of What Vanessa Reads via Bookmooch. And King Dork came from the very sweet Zoe of Zoe's Book Reviews via a Book Swap!


Chasing Boys by Karen Tayleur
Adios to All The Drama by Diana Rodriguez Wallach
Amigas and School Scandals by Diana Rodriguez Wallach

Chasing Boys came for review which I featured on a Waiting On Wednesday post a few weeks back and the other two (long titles!) came from the great Carol(ina) of Bookluver- Carol's Reviews!


Just Like That by Marsha Qualey
The Sugar Queen by Sarah Addison Allen
The World According to Bertie by Alexander McCall Smith

Got these at the library book store! Just Like That, mainly because I wanted to be like Shalonda who I noticed had it in her bookshelves post this week :P

Sweethearts by Sara Zarr
Confessions of a Triple Shot Betty by Jody Gehrman
Red: Teenage Girls in America Write On What Fires Up Their Lives Today edited by Amy Goldwasser
Got these from Amazon! I've been so excited for those first two to come out in paperback and doesn't Red sound amazing!

Friday: nothing

Saturday: nothing


  1. You weren't too deprived this week! Red is definitely intriguing. I'll wait for your review!

  2. I have read a lot of bad reviews of Kiss My Book but I really enjoyed it. I sat down one evening with a cup of tea and read the whole book in four hours. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

  3. Red seems amazing. Next time I go to Barnes and Nobles or Borders, I am going to see if they have it.

  4. Yes, it seems as though the book world is a little slow. My week in books was pretty calm also.

  5. Still, lots of great stuff! :-)

  6. This display is my favorite yet. You are so creative.

  7. You got a lot of interesting books. I really want to read Chasing Boys.

  8. Hi! Everthing sounds fab-u! Very curious about RED also...I'm gobbling up Noise: Fiction Inspired by Sonic Youth, Zombies Calling by Faith Erin Hicks and Tales of Beedle the Bard (at last!) Haven't been able to post to mine or anyone else's blog for a spell as I'm out a computer for a spell - ack! Thank goodness for web enabled cell phones! xo

  9. Red does look cool. It would have been amazing to have been a part of that.

    You did have a relatively consertavie week....for you, for sure. LOL For me, this would be a lot!!!

    I like how you set up the picture.
    You should try a heart sometime.


  10. That's a good week. Now what I want to know is when they'll be read by!

  11. Cool! I have Diana Rodriguez Wallach's first book but haven't gotten around to starting it yet. :D

  12. OOh, I love the way you set the books up this week! You'll love Triple Shot Betty! I died laughing on the June (maybe July) 17th entry! Hilarious!

    Wow! What a week! I love the graphic of all the books too! I absolutely loved Diana Rodriguez Wallach's first book series - which one was your favorite?

  14. I love the pink and red theme you have going on this week!

  15. Glad to see you were so conservative! LOL I had to force myself to stay out of the bookstore today, so I went to the library instead!

    You still got a lot of really good stuff. I can't wait to see what you think about Chasing Boys, and the Diana Rodriguez Wallach series.

  16. Great books! And I love the picture. You always make your posts seem so.. professionally done. haha. =)

  17. I love the picture, cute book arrangement. Another fabulous week hey?

  18. I really enjoyed The Sugar Queen - I hope you do too! Also, I love the picture of your books - very creative!

  19. You had a great week and as everyone has mentioned, I really enjoy the way you set up your post. The pictures of your book stash is really well done.

    Hope you have a good week and happy reading :)

  20. Even if it's not as big as normal, that's still an awesome pile! Makes me jealous that you have Triple Shot Bettys. I have the sequel but can't get my hands on the first! (I suppose I could break down and by it but I'm *supposed* to be saving my money!)

    The two books by Diana Wallach are really good!

  21. King Dork is an amusing read. =) Just wish there is more of a plot...

  22. such an awesome pile this week! and the display very creative!

  23. I read Chasing Boys this week, it's really good!

  24. I do think this was a quality over quantity week! They all look SO GOOD! And I want to read them all right now all at the same time! And I'm glad you guys liked my display! I'm trying to think of a good composition for this week but I don't know how many books I'll end up with!

    The Book Gobbler- Life is sad without computers!

    Alison- I haven't read any yet!

    HarmonyBookReviews- I wish I had the second book in paperback, I don't want to wait a year!

  25. You still did really good, but it's definitely not the norm. It's usually raining books at your house!

    Diary of an Eccentric

  26. Anna- LOL yeah! I'm hoping I can keep it smaller from now on, that might be wishful thinking though. This past week was a larger explosion of books!
