This Week In Books or I Only Bought One + Some Surprises!

Monday: nothing


Pop Princess by Rachel Cohn

I escaped the library buying only one book and that is probably because I cleaned out all their good stuff in the previous weeks. :P

Love is the Higher Law by David Levithan

Surprise for review, and yay! I'm excited it's alternative perspectives!

Little Black Lies by Tish Cohen
Food, Girls, and Other Things I Can't Have
The Hollow by Jessica Verday

These came from a book fairy... and good thing too because I can use Food for a blog tour!

Psych Major Syndrome by Alicia Thompson
Love Stars With Elle by Rachel Hauck

I mooched these from Yan.

Wednesday: nothing


Short Girls by Bich Minh Nguyen

This is from LibraryThing's Early Reviewers program (which I really need to get caught up on)

Ferris Beach by Jill McCorkle

Surprise for review! Looks like it's a reprint and a blurb from Sarah Dessen!


The Resurrectionist by Jack O'Connell

Another surprise for review!


Lament by Maggie Stiefvater

I won this by being one of the first 3 people to respond to an email. LOL, the perks of working on a computer!


  1. HOLLOW. O_O wantwantwant

    and YAY David Levithan!

  2. Part of me is sad that I have the original LAMENT and the sequel isn't going to match it. And part of me is sad that I don't have the new cover because the original is very creepy and depressing. But I LOVE it. Haha! Now I feel like I have a collectors item!

  3. OMG HATE! I wanted Lament! xD

  4. Cat- I'm sad they changed it. I much preferred the original, it was very ORIGINAL! These new ones do nothing for me. :/

  5. P.S. You should let me borrow it ;P

  6. Food, Girls, and Other Things I Can't Have looks good. I want Lament so badly!

  7. I'm interested to read your thoughts on Lament.

  8. Great books you got this week. Hope you enjoy reading them all.

  9. I'm so impressed with your restraint this week! You got some good looking books!
