New on the Shelf

My mom and I love to go to Estate/Garage/Yard sales on Saturdays when the weather is nice. This Saturday we set off, and I wasn't expecting much, but I turned a corner and all around were signs for a Book Sale. My mom is also a big reader so we pulled in the parking lot only to find that is was an old-timey Scholastic book sale!

My elementary school heart started pounding. I was taken back to the days of circling items I wanted in the catalog, then bringing my money to school. This book sale was awesome because virtually everything was 50% off AND I got to pick up some great Scholastic titles without the hassle of repeating elementary school.

The Boy Next Door by Katie Van Ark (Thanks Macmillian!)

  4. So many great books! I think that you will either love or hate Curses and Smoke. Happy reading!

  5. Wow! What a great win from Sourcebooks! I am jealous of Illusionarium. I got an egalley of it, but would love a physical ARC. Thanks for stopping by my post earlier!

  6. All the Truth That's In Me sounds very good. The Truth About Us and the Summer After You and Me are both so good. Enjoy! :)

  7. Sounds like so many good books here! Personally I have a copy of Illusionarium and also The Boy Next Door so I am curious to know what you think of those and if our opinions will line up.
