I had another great book week! I think I just had a great week in general! For starters, my volunteer library had a teen movie night, where the movie was The Hunger Games, and it was so much fun! I went to go see a Harry Potter play last night: Potted Potter. This was a play done by two comedians/writers/actors and they performed all seven books in 70 minutes! It was a little over-the-top and most definitely made for a younger audience, but actually very funny. And today I’m going to see Breaking Dawn Part 2! What a great week to love YA books!
But, on to the books! I found 3 very inexpensive finds at one of my favorite used bookstores. It’s hard to believe I didn’t already own a hard cover copy of Matched by Ally Condie. I guess I only had a digital copy of it. But, I needed to get a hard copy version to go with all the other pretties in the series I own! And of course, I went and purchased the new Ally Condie book the day it came out (and am now reading it).
Reached by Ally Condie (It is so good!)
Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles (It’s about time I read/owned these books)
Bright Young Things by Anna Godbersen (I have a guilty addiction to all the books she writes…Alos, this was like two dollars!)
Matched by Ally Condie (I need a hard cover version to go with all the others I own in the series)
Not too long ago, I also received a belated birthday present in the mail. And technically, it’s not a book; it’s a journal. But, it is so beyond pretty that I decided I had to share it here. I think I might have named it Nori Riddle’s Diary. Thank you Chris and Emma, two of my favorite people in the world!
Then, I also received a nice sized haul from NetGalley. The interface of the website had changed, and it may have taken me an embarrassingly long period of time to realize that I received several books I had requested a long time ago. Thankfully, I could still send them to my Kindle… Special thanks to: BenBella Books, St. Martin’s Press, Bloomsbury Children’s Books, Penguin Young Readers, and Angry Robot.
