I Bought 13 Books Today!

December 23, 2008

Christmas came a bit early for me. My mommy and I went to Barnes & Noble today. She bought me a whopping THIRTEEN books. This kind of makes her uh, the best person ever. (Aside from being the best person ever because she’s a great mom.)

Here’s all I bought:

1. I Know It’s Over by C.K Kelley Martin: YAY!!!!!! Everyone’s totally raving and I finally got me a copy!

2. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins: My mom read the back and even she’s interested in it.

 

3. Living Dead Girl by Elizabeth Scott: I think my love for Elizabeth Scott books is understandable… she’s amazing.

 

4. Before I Die by Jenny Downham: I’ve been eyeing this one, just never bought it. I saw a review on a fellow blogger’s blog and can’t remember which one. I was encouraged to get it by them.

 

5. A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray: I’ve been wanting this one… it looks really good.

 

6. Cracked Up To Be by Courtney Summers: Have you seen all of the reviews for this one?

 

7. In Your Room by Jordanna Fraiberg: I just want to read a good love story. I think this will do the trick.

 

8. Looking for Alaska by John Green: This is like everybody’s favorite book. And I love me some John Green.

 

9. Just Like That by Marsha Qualey: This wasn’t originally on my list but it caught my eye. The plot looks intriguing and the cover is beautiful. 

 

10-13. The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series by Ann Brashares: I was really hoping for this. Everyone has read it and I haven’t!

 

 

Lucky, eh? See you guys!

Have a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. 🙂
