This Week In Books Or That's More Like It! (fist pump)

Monday: nothing I didn't have already (see you in the swap :P)


Unlovable by Esther Pearl Watson

I spazzed about this several months ago in a WOW post. It was supposed to come out about 10 days later, and well that didn't happen and I finally got it this week, 3 months later! And it's even better than I thought it was going to be, it's hot pink with green glitter!

Busy Woman Seeks Wife by Annie Sanders
B as in Beauty by Alberto Ferreras

These came for review!

Wednesday: nothing


Pack Up the Moon by Anna McPartlin
Wings by Aprilynne Pike
Butteryfly by V.C. Andrews
Startled By His Furry Shorts by Louise Rennison

Good day at the library bookstore! I was just about the buy Startled By His Furry Shorts online when I found this! And Wings?!?!? What! Definitely the coolest thing I've found at the library bookstore!


The Villain's Guide to Better Living by Neil Zawacki*
The Secret Circle: The Initiation and The Captive Part 1 by L.J. Smith*
A Countess Below Stairs by Eva Ibbotson
Why Girls Are Weird by Pamela Ribon
Poseur by Rachel Maude
Hell Week by Rosemary Clement-Moore*
Flipped by Wendelin Van Draanen
Secrets of a Former Fat Girl by Lisa Delaney*
The Pursuit of Happiness by Tara Altebrando*

I went to Half Price Books on my day off, give me a break it's been more than 2 months! :P And I totally didn't plan to go, well I hoped (and brought my coupon), but I didn't plan! *And 5 of these books were under $2!!! I thought I might learn to protect myself better from Yan and Carol with the Villain's Guide to Better Living, learn a bit more about how they live...

These Old Shades by Georgette Heyer

I wanted to try Georgette Heyer and this one came highly recommended by a friend! It sounds like it's going to be great, I got it at Borders!


Boy Toy by Barry Lyga

This came from the very kind J. Kaye! Thank you J. Kaye, I bet I'll adore it too!


  1. You only need to protect yourself from Yan since she is a sadist. As for me, well I'll go nice on you. It will be a very fast kill. ;)

    You got some great books this week! :)

  2. Nice loot you got this week. =)

  3. Hey, just give me your books and I'll leave you alone :) orrrr I'll gladly take your house key and a airplane ticket to your town!

    I hate my libraries/bookstores. I swear they have something against us book loves! NO SALES ALMOST EVER!!!

  4. Your library actually SELLS books? Man, I can hardly even get English books to BORROW from mine. The perils of living in a French-run province. Alas.

    I envy your Wings find. Very cool!

  5. Wow!!! Awesome week! That Friday off is going to be dangerous to your pocketbook.

  6. SOOOOOO jealous of Wings. D:

  7. Great week, huh? I love the cover of Wings, it's soooo pretty!

  8. I like the bow-tie design. And you have a library bookstore? Lucky.

  9. Startled by His Furry Shorts is a hilarious title!

  10. I have not been on a Half Price book binge in SO long. I have been so good lately, but I feel myself giving in to temptation with each passing day!

  11. Wow! Great week! I wish I had a great library with sales like that!

  12. Whoot! what an awesome weeek. I still need to read Boy Toy. I have it, just need to get too it.


  13. I think I may need that guide too...I've been getting some threatening mails ;)

  14. Wow you had a great week, and I love the fist pump in the title!

  15. Nice!

    You make me miss HPB so much! It is an awesome store. Glad you found some steals there~

  16. I love the design this week -and of course the loot!

    I also nominated you for an award on my blog!

  17. I love the way you arrange your books! Great books. Enjoy!

  18. Lenore mentioned the design and I realized it reminds me of that computer game Mahjong Titans. At least that's it's name on my computer. On an old computer when I was growing up (the '90s) it was something like Taipei though. Either way, it's another lookalike! lol

  19. I'm going to review B as in Beauty too!


  20. ahhh such a great week in books. I always adore the way you present them. Totally awesome. Now, with so many good books, what are you going to start with first?

    BTW...Wings is amazing.

  21. The Rachel Maude book is the only one I recognize. A reader won it from our Prize Bucket last week. You and Kristi seems to be swimming in books.

  22. damn those cheap books! closoutbooks will be the death of me! i just know it! i've been trying to find a cheap copy of posuer too! gah! i did go to town on friday and happened to pass a building witha sign that said Bargain Books.... i must go check it out.

  23. So many great books!
    I love the cover of Flipped! :)

  24. Another person that got Wings... *jealous*

  25. great list of books this week, and what an artistic arrangement of them! Happy Reading.

  26. sweet!

    I also got flipped from half price quite a while ago. I love that store and I loved that book, it's so cute!

  27. Wow man, I really need to go there again. I don't go to half price that often but if I could go everyday, I'd definitely do it. :D

  28. As always, I love your book layout! You are very talented. And I am very jealous. I want that Aprilynne book, Wings.

  29. OMG, I love Half Priced Books - Best. Store. EVER!!! I want to know how Busy Woman Seeks Wife and B As In Beauty are - you better review them fast :}...or whenever. I guess I'm in no major hurry...

  30. You can't turn down books under $2. You just can't. Looks like you had a good week. Happy reading!

    Diary of an Eccentric

  31. Love the way you posted your photos. Looks like you have a ton of interesting things to keep you busy!

  32. Carol- Thanks, I think!

    Yan- NOOOOOOOOOOO! Now I know what you look like, hahah!

    Cat- Yes, it's a whole little store at the main branch!

    Emily- Go and then do a post about it! :P

    Lenore- Darn, I should have picked you up a copy, there were a few. I love the design of it, Chronicle Books always does great stuff!

    Amee and everyone- LOL! I'm glad you guys enjoyed the formation this week, I was definitely uninspired, it took a few tries!
