I binged again...on books

So this week, I had to go to Barnes & Noble...mostly for the smell and I needed to get a book for my daughter. Seven books later, I walked out of the store.

And I have to say I'm a bit disappointed with my local B&N because they eliminated their new release section for middle grade. I loved that section and I feel disconnected now that it's gone.

My purchases:
(Middle Grade)
  • It's Raining Cupcakes
  • The Familiars
  • The Book of Elsewhere: The Shadows (I love this title)
(Young Adult)
  • Enclave
  • Wildfire
  • The Maze Runner (I know I'm late to this party.)

  • Scaredy-cat Splat!

I'm half way through The Familiars and loving it. Seriously, the cat is funny. So of course I was delighted to find out about this: A Giveaway for Book 2 of The Familiars.

What have you picked up lately that you're loving?


  1. I scored PETER NIMBLE AND HIS FANTASTIC EYES at Borders when they were at their 50% point. Couldn't believe a new release I was LOOKING for was there!! It's every shade of awesome, and I'm going to gush about it this coming Monday on MMGM!

  2. Yay for, I mean bad bad. I went into chapters last week and they had a buy three get the fourth free sale. Well. Eight books later...

    I should post them, too. Did not get The Familiars, though...must, must check that one!

    Of the ones I bought, read and loved:


  3. Your local Barnes & Noble did away with their MG new release section?!? Gasp!! See, that's why you should shop at an indie. *smiles*

    Just sayin'.

    I'm currently reading an arc of PIE by Sarah Weeks (due in Oct) and will probably use it as my next MMGM. It's a fun mystery.

  4. I just finished an ARC of Crossed and am reading Wolfbane. I just got Wildfire too.

  5. Have you read Divergen? It was one of the best books I've read this summer, and one I will likely buy.

  6. Oops! That's Divergent (typing too fast)!
