This Week In Books Or Some Surprises in the Mail!

Monday: nothing


Wicked Plants by Amy Stewart

This came for review, I think the author may be speaking locally.

Misery Loves Cabernet by Kim Gruenenfelder

ANOTHER Library Thing Early Reviewer book, this is my first one from a bonus batch!


Pretty in Pink: The Golden Age of Teenage Movies by Jonathan Bernstein

Jonathan Bernstein+ 80s movies= awesome. This is the first thing I ever bought from Amazon Marketplace, I paid 1 cent for it (and $3.99 shipping)!


Falling Stars by V.C. Andrews
Sparkles by Louise Bagshawe

Raisin Rodriguez and the Big-Time Smooch by Judy Goldschmidt

The Importance of Being Married by Gemma Townley
The Secret of Lost Things by Sheridan Hay

Got to stay at the library a little longer so naturally I found more!

The Fortune Cookie Chronicles by Jennifer 8. Lee

Bookmooch book, first one in a long time.


Love, Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli

The Sweet Far Thing by Libba Bray

These came for review, and thankfully I have the books that come before these in the series!


30 Days to Finding and Keeping Sassy Sidekicks and BFFs by Clea Hantman

This also came for review, I've been known to enjoy reading fun how-to guides :)


  1. Another awesome week! I'm jealous about The Sweet Far Thing in paperback. I have the hardcover so yay! but I like the convenience of paperbacks. :P

  2. I got the same Random pack you got :D!!! Love, Stargirl was simply amazing! Sweet Far Thing I prob. won't review since I haven't read the other 3 yet.

  3. I had the Secret of Lost Things checked out from the library last year, but I never got to it.

  4. ahhhhh nice. Libba bray.... bought great and terrible beauty yesterday... :)

  5. You will love anything by Gemma Townley. I am currently reading her new one that will be released as the end of the month - Wild Affair. Starts off where the last The Importance of Being Married leaves off. Excellent!

  6. You had a great week again!

  7. I loved both Love Stargirl and The Sweet Far Thing, and I think you will too! You are so lucky to get them. I've been wanting both in paperback.

  8. Nice week, Alea. :) I haven't gotten anything in two weeks. o.o
    Which is extremely odd. I'm sad. :(
    I love getting a package in the mail or finding them on my doorstep and the joy of opening it to find the books inside. *le sigh*
    Oh well, maybe it's a good thing. I have A LOT of books I need to read. And I do mean A LOT.
    BUT you can never have too many books! :D (My mom thinks I have way too many books. T_T So I don't think she'll be getting me any books for my birthday, even if I make the whole list books like I did last year. :|)
    Anyway, can't wait to see what you think of the books. :)
    The Gemma Doyle Trilogy is AMAZING. :D
    Which reminds me that I still need to read THE SWEET FAR THING. I have it on my shelf, but just haven't had the chance to read it yet. :(

  9. As always a wonderful week full of yummy books. I adore the Gemma Doyle of my fav reads.

  10. Looks like another good week! I think you'll like Falling Stars. I'll be on the lookout for copies of the first four in the series.

  11. I've been wanting to read the Raisin Rodriguez books...hey, did you notice that all of the books that you got have brilliant, gorgeous covers? (:

  12. Cool week! I've never read any of the Stargirl books, but I probably should.

  13. Well, you had a nice week. :-) Yay! I had a pretty good week as well. I might try and post an IMM post later if I have time...

  14. Ooh, the sweet fair things out in paperback!

  15. Alea another Great week. Love the books you got. Wishing you another great week. :)

  16. I love Love, Stargirl. There is just no other book like it. I hope you enjoy your books!

  17. Looks like you had a great week. Lots of cool stuff to choose from.

  18. Looks like a good week.

  19. Wow, lots of interesting titles there. I've read the first books in the Stargirl and Gemma Doyle series but I haven't read Love, Stargirl or The Sweet Far Thing... I can't wait to see waht you think about them!

  20. Part ONE? How can there be a part ONE? So envious. T_T

    30 Days to Finding and Keeping Sassy Sidekicks and BFFs by Clea Hantman. Review review! I would request a review, but it's already been requested.

  21. Fun books!

    And a book about 80s movies? Gotta love it!

  22. We got the same paperback books AND the how-to guide, which I think is hilarious that I got. I might read it... who knows.

    That Jonathon Bernstein book looks cool.

    PS Depending on when you want to read the Shooting Stars series, I could lend you the first four books in the series sometime. I just need money first to be able to send them out, lol.

  23. Anonymous4:29 PM

    I gasped when I saw Pretty in Pink! I've been checking that book out from my library for YEARS. I hated everything about the 80s before I read it. Now I just love making fun of the 80s :D

  24. I loved The Sweet Far Thing! I was sad to see the series end.

  25. I'm intrigued by the Sparkle cover. I'll be looking for more information about it.

  26. I am so jealous of both your posts. You got tons of great books and it is always dangerous to go in to Borders!

  27. Awesome haul, have fun reading all those books.

  28. A great week. And you must be getting close to a complete V.C. Andrews collection by now!

  29. I'm not familiar with these so I'm looking forward to your thoughts. Happy reading!

    Diary of an Eccentric
