This Week's Bounty

This week was an amazing week for books...I am so very lucky to have my hands on some great titles!

Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver (I really love the fact that the girl on the cover looks REAL!)

Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony: A Friendship That Changed the World - am really looking forward to this one because I teach US History I and this goes hand-in-hand with our content.
Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare - haven't read anything by her (which I know makes me weird) and am looking forward to her books over the summer!

Picked up some review copies (thanks Simon & Schuster!) - kids picture book Hogg, Hogg, and Hogg and No Room For Dessert - reviews coming soon!

Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson - I ordered this one because it is the Platinum Edition, and I wanted a nice copy of it.

If I Stay by Gayle Forman - figured since I already have Where She Went, I better read this one first!
My favorite bounty of the week - for Mother's Day, my husband bought me a copy of Melissa Marr's new book Graveminder and it came with this AWESOME flask with a quote from the book on it - "three sips to mind the dead." SUPER AMAZING GIFT!

Not something I intended on for this week, but we picked this up for $5 at Kohl's when we were checking out...since I pack four lunches everyday for my family, we figured we could get some good ideas out of it!

Stolen by Lucy Christopher - if you haven't already seen this book, add it to your TBR pile. The summary on Goodreads will hook you, and it counts toward a new challenge I am doing for award winning books. Can't wait to start this one!

I also scored a hardback copy of The Hunger Games but have already lent it out so no I am assuming everyone who is reading this blog already knows what it looks like :)


  1. Nice haul! I'm reading Graveminder now and loving it! Just been too busy to sit down and read this weekend! Tomorrow should be better!
