Boy Meets Girl by Meg Cabot
She Went All The Way by Meg Cabot

Sixteen edited by Megan McCafferty

These were all from bookmooch!

The Season by Sarah MacLean

For review! Wohoo!

Tuesday: nothing

Wednesday: nothing


Bittersweet Sixteen by Carrie Karasyov and Jill Kargman

JUST missed a bus so I popped into the Barnes and Noble right next door to the building I usually seek warmth in, in the morning and browsed their clearance section. Found this book for $2.

Go Ask Alice by Anonymous
Catalyst by Laurie Halse Anderson

The Third Angel by Alice Hoffman

Got these from the Library Book Store.


Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles

I won this from Free Book Friday Teen! And it's signed!

Take the Reins (Canterwood Crest #1) by Jessica Burkhart
Geek Charming by Robin Palmer

Wake by Lisa McMann

You can't say blogs don't work. I kept reading about the Canterwood Crest books recently and today I checked out the website for the series here. I needed to have it! And check out the Cover Story for Take the Reins over at Melissa Walker's blog here. The covers are gorgeous! Geek Charming I featured on Waiting On Wednesday a few weeks ago and Wake recently came out in paperback so I had to get it!

Killing Yourself To Live by Chuck Klosterman
The Dashwood Sisters' Secrets of Love by Rosie Rushton

Irish Girls About Town

Make Him Look Good by Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez

Carol told me about the 3-day $1 sale Barnes and Noble was having so I had to head over to my local store, these are the books I found!


The Makedown by Gitty Daneshvari
Girl Most Likely To by Poonam Sharma

The Makedown is for review, this book sounds great! And Girl Most Likely to is from Bookmooch!


  1. I hate you for getting The Season. :(

  2. You are so sweet!! Thank you for blogging about TTR! And I'll pass your compliments to my designer. :)

  3. Yay for all the books you got. I think The Makedown sounds fun as well. I just read an interview with the author a few days ago.


  4. Your B&N had a better selection of books for the 3-day sale. :P

    The only $1 YA book that I found was Bittersweet Sixteen.

    P.S. You did some really good books! :)

  5. I have Sixteen and I haven't read it yet. The others all look fabulous!

  6. This is always one of my favorite posts to read every week!

    I have Bittersweet Sixteen -I got it from Goodwill because the cover was pretty. I've read Go Ask Alice, though. It does for drugs what Twilight did for premarital sex.

  7. You know I love these posts and always smile when I see your creative arrangements!

  8. Hey, Alea. I have a lookalike I wanted to point out to you, but I don't have your email and I don't know how to embed pictures into comments. But the lookalike is The Third Angel by Alice Hoffman and the cover of Secondhand Serenade's cd, A Twist in My Story.

    Heather (send me an email, please, so I can add you to my contacts for future reference.)

  9. There was a 3 day $1 sale!? I didn't even know. This is the one time I can take relief in the fact that my B&N has a crappy clearance section already. At least that's what I assume applied to the $1 sale. If not, well then I'm mad. lol

  10. At least your Barnes & Noble had more than one good book for a dollar! My selection stunk.

    The Season? Sweet!

    And Go Ask Alice is a classic. I even talked my sister into reading it.

    The Makedown sounds interesting. :)

  12. Oh my gosh! You make me feel like such a lightweight. Happy reading!

  13. I just read Perfect Chemistry last weekend and I LOVED it! I am looking forward to seeing what you think. Have you seen the rap video for the book?

  14. I love how you arrange the books : D it's getting nicer every week. I wanna steal some of them haha.

  15. As usual I love your posts and your adore how you post your books, very creative. You have also been blessed by the book goddess and have an amazing selection of books.

    Here's to a great week and happy reading :)

  16. Go Ask Alice is a classic. Would love to hear your views on it later. I read just before or during high school. At my age, the years blur.

  17. Wow!!! You did great this week. I'm trying to cut back on buying and accumulating. Ha, ha.

    I'm so very jealous! I didn't get ANY books this week. Geek Charming looks great!

  19. wow! i feel like i say that every week, i probably do, but wow!

  20. Anonymous10:03 AM

    Quite a haul this week. I go through weeks when I buy a ton of books and then the next week nothing. Those nothing weeks don't occur very often though.

  21. Can I say I'm jealous? Geek Charming? The Season?
    I got Canterwood Crest, too! It looks amazing!

  22. Go Ask Alice is amazing. I read it years ago and now I kind of want to go read it again. And I agree with blogs working I really want to read Take the Reigns after all the press online and I don't think its something I would normally read. And how do you do those book arrangements. They are amazing.

  23. I requested for the Makedown to review also! But I am unsure if my message was received...

  24. Wow, that's a lot of books! What a great week you had!

  25. Khy- Sorry :/

    Jessica Burkhart- Aww thanks! I LOVE the covers!

    Shooting Stars Mag- Oooh, i'll have to look for the interview!

    Carol(ina)- Yeah I think these sales are always hit and miss!

    Korianne- It sounds great doesn't it!

    Taren- Thanks! That means so much! A friend from college would always talk about Alice so I was like MUST BUY!

    Lenore- Thanks! :)

    Heather- I'm pretty sure I emailed you back yes? That's a great one and I'll definitely post it!

    Amee- Yeah I'm not sure where the books came from, Carol told me about the sale!

    Shalonda- That's a bummer!

    towerofbooks- I'm very excited to read it!

    bermudaonion- I'm not sure what's in store for this week yet, I might be the lightweight!

    Mrs. V.- I did see it! So funny and clever!

    Thao- Aww thanks!

    The Ravenous Reader- Thank you, hope I can keep it up!

    susan- I hear you there! My teenage years are becoming one big blur and I'm only 25!

    Beth F- Good luck with that!

    harmonybookreviews- Oh no that's no fun!

    The Story Siren- LOL, this week may be an unwow week, not sure yet!

    carrie's ya bookshelf- Me and you both! ;)

    Bookworm- Sorry and yay!

    Erika Lynn- I just lay the books out on my bed (yes, my bed!) take the picture and then cut out the background in photoshop :)

    Diana Dang- I hope you get it, mine came about a month after I asked for it.

    Alyce- It was great!

  26. I really like The Third Angel, but it was pretty dark.
