The Bermudez Triangle by Maureen Johnson
A Company of Swans by Eva Ibbotson
Lucky Girl by Mei-Ling Hopgood

First three from Bookmooch. Thanks to Amee for suggesting A Company of Swans. And the last one was a random book for review! Sounds interesting!

Tuesday: nothing

Wednesday: nothing


Melody by V.C. Andrews
Contents Under Pressure by Lara M. Zeises
Babe in Toyland by Eugene Seifer Olson

There's A (Slight) Chance I Might Be Going to Hell by Laurie Notaro

^^^ Library Book Store, was there for longer than usual (more time to grab things)! Melody sounds like it might be the most interesting of the V.C. Andrews I've come across!

The Wednesday Sisters by Meg Waite Clayton

Thanks to Yan for this book via a trade!


Geektastic by Various

Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler
Sleepaway Girls by Jen Calonita

These came for review, I screamed OMG several times when I saw what they were!

The Breakup Bible by Melissa Kantor
I Love You, Let's Meet by Virginia Vitzthum
Envy by Anna Godbersen

First two were from the $2 Borders Clearance Sale while I was buying the books for my giveaway. I had $15 Borders Bucks and a coupon so I'll call Envy free!


The Celebutantes: On the Avenue by Antonio Pagliarulo

Got this from bookmooch, anyone read it?

So what are you reading right now?


  1. Your house must be crammed full of books.

  2. Good going!! I have A Company of Swans ready to read this year. Just when I read it is anyone's guess.

  3. I would need to buy a new bookshelf for that many books. (I've already filled my last shelf and have resorted to book piles in random places throughout the house.)

    Right now I'm reading Drood by Dan Simmons and A Monstrous Regiment of Women by Laurie R. King. First time with Drood, can't remember how many times I've read Monstrous Regiment. It's one of my favorites.

  4. Also, I loved The Wednesday Sisters! I think you'll enjoy that one a lot.

  5. Nice stash, as always! I think I would be shouting OMG too over those review books!


  7. I totally want Twenty Boy Summer and Geektastic!! You must tell me how you got them.

    Also, I love the Logan series. It is really good. One of my two fave VCA books is in that series- it's Music in the Night (the 4th one).

    And that's an odd cover for Bermudez Triangle- I've never seen it before. Do you know why it's like that?

  8. Come on, you HAVE to post some bookcase pictures! Or at least a total number of books. I'm so curious! I've also been wondering, how do you make them have the plain white background?

  9. Great selection! Right now I'm reading Bone Crossed by Patricia Briggs.

  10. Omg Geektastic looks so amazing. I'm green with Envy! Speaking of Envy, lucky you for getting a free copy.

    See I told you Yan was gonna try to steal your books. I told her to snatch Geektastic for me.

  11. OMG YOU GOT GEEKTASTIC??? ME WANTYYYYY!!! I'm so jealous of you right now. LOL It sounds amazinggg.

    Twenty Boy Summer as well! I really love the cover. So pretty. :)

    You had a greattt week.


  12. Wow! Lucky you. I can't wait for Envy, I love the dress on the cover. The Celebutantes also really looks good...
    AND OMG YOU GOT SLEEPAWAY GIRLS????!!!! I so call it when you don't want it anymore! Seriously. (: I adore Jen Calonita and it sounds adorable! Lucky you!

  13. I've always wanted to read the Eva Ibbotson book, I've heard really good things about it!

  14. Anonymous4:06 PM

    What a wonderful lot of books! I'm very interested in hearing what you think about Heavenly Date and Other Flirtations. I haven't read that one yet but it sounds good.

  15. Very nice. Let me know how you like A Company of Swans, k? I've been meaning to read it for a while.

  16. Wow, your cover for A Company of Swans is soo different from the recent covers!

  17. As always, I love your presentation. You have had an awesome book week. Twenty boy summer sounds amazing.

  18. You had such a great week. I want to be your mailbox.

  19. Oh! Read Twenty Boy Summer soon. I want to see how it is. :P

  20. Woo, great book week! This week was a slow one for me.

  21. Wow. another week of lots of books. I'm with the others, your bookshelves must be out of control!

  22. I don't think I've read any of these but wow! What a haul! I'm reading Why We Suck by Dr. Denis Leary right now.

  23. The next time my spouse complains about my mail, I'm going to pull up your post. lol How many bookcases do you own?

  24. bermudaonion- Yes but it's actually just my room!

    Beth F- Same here haha!

    Ruth @ Bookish Ruth- I really only have 3 bookshelves the rest are stacked all over the place. Two of the bookshelves are really small! The Wednesday Sister's does sound like it will be good!

    Shalonda- Hehe OMGOMGOMGOMG! :)

    Yan- See you soon Yan, I'll be waiting with a snack for you, I'm sure you'll be hungry from the long trip! :P

    BookChic- The cover is missing (that's probably bad) but I mooched it and didn't buy it that way so yeah haha. So that's the first page of the book you are seeing.

    Taren- I think i emailed you, tell me if i didn't and I just imagined I did!

    Liviania and Lenore- Thanks!

    Sharonanne- You should just come with her! I'll take you guys bargain book hunting!

    Shooting Stars Mag- Sorry :(

    Bookworm- I actually haven't read any of her books yet. I have the first 2 in her series and this one just sounds perfect for me!

    prophecygirl- Same here!

    Belle- I used to read all of his books as them came out but I've gotten very very behind in the last few years! He writes such cutes stories!

    Steph Su- Sounds good, might be a few years! :P

    Amee- Yeah it's pretty old school and wasn't what I was expecting. I hate mass market paperbacks but oh well!

    The Ravenous Reader- Thank you!

    Erika Lynn- LOL! I love getting the mail and sadly now that only happens on Saturdays :(

    Liv- I will keep that in mind!

    S. Krishna- I need a slow one!

    Michelle- Bookshelves aren't, everywhere else it! Picture tittering piles!

    Ladytink_534- I saw that waiting for the bus stop! Isn't the subtitle something about being fat. He's so not fat!

    susan- I only have like 3 i'm using and another from college that's in pieces. Most of my books aren't on shelves :/

  25. I'm thinking you own a secret library somewhere, and are the only one with a key, and that all these books are immaculately arranged on shelves.....

  26. Beth- How I wish that were the case!
