Hannah (hansrox) | 140 comments I buy too many books. The other day my cousin and I went to a used bookstore and I bought the host by Stephanie meyer, because of Winn Dixie by Kate dicamillo (I've watched an loved the movie so I had to buy this), a walk to remember by Nicholas sparks (again I watched the movie and loved it), and the carnivorous carnival by lemony snicket. And on top of that my cousin was helping me collect the series of unfortunate events so she had 8 of them plus I bought the first two books, online,of the raven cycle by Maggie stiefvater. So I went home that day with 14 books... (I think I have a problem) ;)

Fari  (nothingbetterthanbooks) Lucky you, Jannelle! I want to buy every single one of those books! (Haven't read the Host yet but people who hate Twilight still said that it's good... So, I'm excited!) Especially COHF and Four!


message 6: by Jannelle (new)

Jannelle (The-Book-Huntress) | 7 comments Well, then, Fari, it'd be in your best interest to get The Host from the bargain books section that I mentioned! I'm not completely sure if it's there all the time though .

I haven't heard very good things about The Lovely Bones but since it was only 99 cents I thought I might as well give it a shot xD

message 46: by Ebony (new)

Ebony | 9 comments I just bought Tenth Grade Bleeds. It's the third book in the Chronicles of Vladimir Tod series. I really like it so far. It isn't that long but it is engaging and a really fun read so far. I'm hoping to finish it by tomorrow but judging how demanding school has been on my life I highly doubt it.

Kasia (kasiareads) | 16 comments I just bought a beautiful edition of "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz." It was so pretty and I told myself I didn't want to buy it, but at the same time I did. Next thing I know I find myself at the cashier paying $35 because I saw a pretty cube plant thingy.. Oh dear God help me.
