Weekly meme from The Story Siren
The idea is to post the books you got this week,
whether you bought them, got them as a gift,
from the library, or received them to review.

This week’s blogger is cutie.

It’s been a while since I’ve share books I’ve bought,
received, rented, what-have-you.

Books Bought:

  1. Lots of awesome stuff there! Gotta love Sarah Dessen 🙂 I hope you enjoy The Near Witch, I really did. I have Putting Makeup On Dead People to review as well – hope we both love it!

    Hope you enjoy the rest of your haul as well, happy reading!
    My recent post In My Mailbox (19)

  2. I love the cover for The Near Witch. It's gorgeous. And Putting Makeup on Dead People looks interesting. Oh and I LOVED Legacy! Totally awesome book. I couldn't believe the author was only 14-15 when she wrote it! And I <3 The Last Unicorn. Love it. You got so many cool things! Totally jealous!

    You can check out my if you want!

  3. Along for the ride was amazing!!…only in my opinion lol. I need to go buy What Happened to Goodbye and Will Grayson, Will Grayson sounds really good.

    I'm finding it hard to read The Last Unicorn on my ereader (can't read the words, but the pictures are wonderful). I'm going to try my laptop later to get that one read (should be a quick read). 🙂

    Great IMM!

  5. cutie

    Thank you!!! I'm hoping to read The Near Witch next. As long as I don't get distracted by all these awesome new books!

  6. cutie

    Yeah, I had to read The Last Unicorn on the computer. It wasn't so bad. My kids have been trying to read the digital comics on my Nook and it's just fail. I'm thinking I will just HAVE to buy an iPad. hehe

  7. cutie

    Heather is for awesome!! It really was more like a great month. However, a majority of it did land on my doorstep this week! It was like Christmas.

  8. cutie

    Your opinion is… AWESOME! I completely agree. I had borrowed the book from the library and was waiting for it to come out in paperback. And I will only encourage you to buy Will Grayson and What Happened to Goodbye. Both phenomenal reads!

  9. cutie

    YES!! The Mustache book is wonderment!! The little cuties and I were giggling so hard over it. And I'm reading Goliath right now… In fact, it's sitting right next to me… sooooofa king good!

  10. cutie

    You know, I requested The Near Witch and Putting Make Up On Dead People months ago and was only recently approved. I have no clue what is up with them… Sorry about that. =(

  11. cutie

    Oops!! I totes read through all the comments first and started commented after so I answered you in a comment above… *headdesk* Did ya get all that?! LOL

    I had to read TLU on the computer as well. It wasn't that hard, but I definitely wish it was easier to read on my Nook.

    And now I'll go hang my head in shame for all this comment shenanigans!
