Wait.... how did that get there? It's not a book! LOL!

Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan
Fade by Lisa McMann
Evermore by Alyson Noel

I made Yan a deal, my hardcovers for her paperbacks (ARCs) and they showed up today, plus Evermore as a trade!


  1. Whoa!! I think this is the best week ever since I've been reading. You have some great ones there and some new to me (and I know I'll be adding to my wish list).

    And that S. Krishna should be getting some kind of kick back for making us all acquire books.

    It'll take me the entire week to check out all of these titles!!

  2. Oh my! What an awesome week!

    You're going to love Art Geeks and Prom Queens. It is so cute. One of my faves!

    Jealous of A Map of the Known World and It's Not You, It's Me. Both sound great!

  3. You are going to love Go Figure and the Hoffman book!!!

    I love your lists and I need to move closer to your house - since apparently all the good book sales are in your area :)

    I love getting "mysterious" packages myself - and I was lucky enough to get one this week.


  4. Wow! Great week. There are a bunch of books there that I'm so jealous that you have! Girl at sea, Fade, and Rebel angels are Very good.

  5. Wow, that is some list of books.

  6. Ah! Alea!
    Some of those books look totally amazing.
    I think I need to start checking out the library it at the central minneapolis library?

  7. Awesome week! So many I want to read and several I have read and that I hope you enjoy! I can't believe you had to do 3 pictures! hahaha

  8. Oh my! What a haul! Nice work! I can't wait to hear what you think of Same Difference by Sibohan Vivian. I LOVED it.

  9. Anonymous3:30 PM

    Dene Low's "The Entomological Tales of Augustus T. Percival"

  11. omg alea. you definitely don't have a problem. noooo of courseeee not. LOL nah, just kidding. that's amazing. I love it!


  12. Holy cow, that was some trip ;)

    Pssssst, Alea, I think your books are procreating in your mailbox! That, or they're mating while on delivery...

    Hmmm...too tired to re-read and see if that actually makes any sense :)

    Enjoy your books! I will enjoy gazing at them on my screen :)

  13. Wow...what a week! I can't look too closely though or I'll be adding too many titles to my wishlist!!

  14. If you don't want some of those books you could send them to me. :P Have fun reading!

  15. What a week! S. Krishna's reviews have cost me money in the past, too. Happy Reading!

  16. I want to come live with you! About half of these are on my list already. I really ought to sign up for bookmooch and paperbackswap...

  17. Wow. That's a lot of books!

  18. HOLY CRAPPLES!! That is a LOT of books, lol.

    So jealous of Sea Change, Dating on the Dark Side, Same Difference, Map of the Known World, and Fairy Tale. And I contemplated buying My Big Nose yesterday but decided against it. I was already spending enough money as it was on that trip (see my vlog tomorrow for more details!).

    I may be emailing you at some point to see about borrowing, lol.

  19. OMG! I was like, when is this post ever going to end?! Love the display, as usual :)

  20. WOW, that's one awesome week!

  21. Looks like you fell on that button and had a hard time getting up (=

  22. Ooh you had a good week! I want to read Thirteenth Child and Sea Change. They both look really interesting!

  23. Holy crap! And I thought my pile of books was getting overwhelming. I went nuts on, but I haven't hit the purchase button just yet.


  24. I am so jealous right now!!! AGH!!!

    and i thought my pile was good. :(

  25. Gosh I hope you love Jessica's Guide, I adored it.

    Great "little" pile you have there. Like the look of many of them, want to get my grubby mitts on Map of the Known World.

    We need to set up a cross-Pacific read-a-thon asap.

  26. best subtitle ever and I am seriously going to hide out next to your mailbox because it is where all the cool books are!

  27. Oh my, Oh my!! that is an impressive haul. I am just about finger speechless. LOL. So many great choices and I am going to have to check out

  33. OH MY Goodness! Where do you get all your money from??!
    My mom would kill me if I bought that many books.
    Read rebel angels first, it's one of my faves. you'll love it.

  34. Hahaha, you totally did NOT trip. The evil money-spender in the back of your mind compelled you to do it. Isn't BookCloseouts so addicting? xD

  35. Anonymous10:44 AM

    This is needless to say, but you had a fantastic week! I can't wait to read your reviews on these novels.

  36. You meant to name this post "This Week In Books Or Why Claire Hates Me". LOL. Lucky you! Evermore....I'm buying it today! And Midori By Moonlight looks good...can't wait for the review!

  37. Your title had me laughing before I even looked at the post. You're not wrong there, that's a lot of books! Hope you like them all.

  38. Oh my god, that is simply something to be gaping at. I think my jaw became totally unhinged.

  39. So many books, it makes my head spin. I'd really like to know how you're going to read all these. How long will that take? :-)

  41. That's a lot of books. Sounds like heaven to me!

  42. Your posts always make me feel better about my own out-of-control acquisitions! ;) Bookcloseouts is a dangerous, dangerous place, isn't it?

  43. Anonymous8:46 AM

    OMG wow. That's a lot of books. There are so many books there that I want, especially Being Nikki, It's Not You, It's Me and so much more.

  44. WOW - what a great list! And I'm glad you picked some up on my recommendation, I saw a few in those piles that I liked!
