This Week In Books Or Is it Break Time Yet?


Split by Stefan Petrucha

For review.

Tuesday: nothing


The Life of Glass by Jillian Cantor
Rich Again by Anna Maxted

Life of Glass for a blog tour and Rich Again from GoodReads Giveaways.

Thursday: nothing


Get Lucky by Katherine Center

For a blog tour.

I Am Neurotic by Lianna Kong
Caffeine for the Creative Mind by Stefan Mumaw and Wendy Lee Oldfield
The Happy Book by Rachel Kempster and Meg Leder

Had $5 Borders Bucks and a 30% off coupon. So I thought I'd go take a peek. Went for a magazine that actually ceased publication a year ago (I so didn't know that!) and to look at The Happy Book which I had on my wishlist and thought it would fit well with The Happiness Project (more on that later). I then remembered seeing I Am Neurotic on a gift table the time before and then online, wasn't there anymore but I thought neurotic was in the title and I was right so I found it! Also picked up Caffeine for the Creative Mind because I've been wanting it for years so figured what the heck!

Saturday: nothing


  1. I can't seem to find a summary for Get Lucky, what's it about?

  2. The library must miss you! I bet Get Lucky is good - can't wait to see what you think of it.

  3. Love Katherine Center and Anna Maxted

  4. Can't wait to read Split!

  5. Here's the Get Lucky summary:

    When thirty-year-old Sarah Harper gets fired from her high-powered New York City advertising job, she moves home to Houston to stay with her sister Mackie and brother-in-law and figure out her next step. When she finds out that Mackie and her husband are having trouble conceiving, Sarah realizes the meaning she's been searching for in her life is right in front of her: why doesn't she be Mackie's surrogate? For the first time she'll take care of Mackie instead of the other way around. The year that follows leads to complications in Sarah's family and love life that she never expected. A novel about sisters and the sacrifices they make for each other, Get Lucky is also the story of a woman who must decide once and for all which risks are worth taking...and what will really make her happy.

  6. Awesome books! Get Lucky sounds pretty interesting, I'll have to remember that one.
