This is probably over the last 2 weeks or so...
Front row, all purchased from Salvation Army:
Born on a Blue Day: Inside the Mind of an Extraordinary Autistic Savant by Daniel Tammet - autism has always fascinated me, especially savants...I'd seen this book before and wanted to read it.
Blessings by Anna Quindlen - If only I had found this a month ago...Quindlen came to our local library for a signing :( I loved her book Black and Blue.
The Shunning by Beverly Lewis - Love me some Beverly Lewis! It's been a long time since I read her books...
At the very top of the photo:
The Host by Stephenie Meyer - got from paperbackswap. It's hard to tell what it is without a dust jacket. I was very disappointed in the quality it arrived in...besides the lack of dust jacket, it was severely water damaged, warped pages, mold on the cover, blurred ink. Sigh....but it was free, so what can I do?
LAST BUT MOST DEFINITELY NOT LEAST, in the middle:
Fever by Lauren DeStefano - SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! Ok, I have NO idea how I got this...it just arrived today in a nice "delivery confirmation" stamped package from Simon & Schuster with a card inside asking me to e-mail them with my thoughts on the book - totally unexpected...I'm still baffled. I didn't request it, I didn't win anything, and I've never dealt directly with this publishing company before (but I wanted to! It's one of the best!) Just a fabulous surprise that totally made my day! I LOVED Wither, and I cannot wait to read this!!!
The Poison Diaries: Nightshade by Maryrose Wood - received from Wood's PR team at kdotonline for review. If you would like to have a copy of your very own - personalized and signed even! - see my post from earlier today...I am reading the first book in this series right now, and it's quite interesting. Very pretty covers too (I'm a sucker for a pretty cover!)
Now, if only winter break would hurry up and get here so that I can have some time to sit and read all these, I would be a happy girl!
