Here is what I got this week!

This bibliophile went crazy today! We had an International Book Fair here, kind of like the Book Expo America, and went a bit crazy. It’s not my fault, you surround me with books and this what you’ll get. The fumes of all the books made me loopy!

My dad found it hilarious and a bit shocking how i was picking up books and adding them to my ever growing stack without even reading the blurb to know what the book is actually about. Yeah, umm dad, that’s what we Goodreads for!

I wanted more than anything to make this a vlog but the lack of things to make that happen, sort off left me hanging. I’ll try my best in 2012. This will be my last IMM for this year.

Okay, so after reading Mary, Mary(you can read my review by clicking Mary, Mary)(the first James Patterson novel i read) i am hooked! I got my hands on these novels and i’m super excited about reading them.

So, i’ve heard awesome things about the Kitty Series, plus there was a review by Meg Cabot on the cover, i just automatically picked it up. But i don’t think its the first book in the series, so either i find the first or just start from the second. Even though i don’t like doing that. Also, its Sophie Kinsella…need i say more!

I’ve read P.S. I Love You and If You Could See Me Now…thought i should give this one a shot too.

Jill Mansell writes the funniest stories ever…i couldn’t not pick up this book.

Honestly, i never finished Me and Mr. Darcy, but i just loved the cover of this book and the story sounded great too…so i went and bought Who’s That Girl?

The first thing that attracted me to Southern Discomfort was the cover and i went and bought it, then when i was in the car on my way home did i actually bother to glimpse through the blurb…sounds interesting! Looks like you can judge a book by its cover…i’ll let you know if its true after i finish the book.

When i first picked up Georgette Heyer‘s book, my mom looked at it and said, ” You’re going to read Georgette Heyer?” She was shocked and i was like, “Yes, i am. I started reading her last year…when i borrowed her books from the school library.” And then she said, “Well, thats good!”

Honestly, she thinks i read silly stuff. Got you, didn’t i mum!

Juliet

Juliet

Twenty-five-year-old Julie Jacobs is heartbroken over the death of her beloved Aunt Rose. But the shock goes even deeper when she learns that the woman who has been like a mother to her has left her entire estate to Julie’s twin sister. The only thing Julie receives is a key—one carried by her mother on the day she herself died—to a safety-deposit box in Siena, Italy.

This key sends Julie on a journey that will change her life forever—a journey into the troubled past of her ancestor Giulietta Tolomei. In 1340, still reeling from the slaughter of her parents, Giulietta was smuggled into Siena, where she met a young man named Romeo. Their ill-fated love turned medieval Siena upside-down and went on to inspire generations of poets and artists, the story reaching its pinnacle in Shakespeare’s famous tragedy. 

But six centuries have a way of catching up to the present, and Julie gradually begins to discover that here, in this ancient city, the past and present are hard to tell apart. The deeper she delves into the history of Romeo and Giulietta, and the closer she gets to the treasure they allegedly left behind, the greater the danger surrounding her—superstitions, ancient hostilities, and personal vendettas. As Julie crosses paths with the descendants of the families involved in the unforgettable blood feud, she begins to fear that the notorious curse—“A plague on both your houses!”—is still at work, and that she is destined to be its next target. Only someone like Romeo, it seems, could save her from this dreaded fate, but his story ended long ago. Or did it?

From Anne Fortier comes a sweeping, beautifully written novel of intrigue and identity, of love and legacy, as a young woman discovers that her own fate is irrevocably tied—for better or worse—to literature’s greatest star-crossed lovers.

Hooked

Hooked

Thea Galehouse has always known how to take care of herself. With a flighty club-owner mom and a standoffish, recovering-alcoholic dad, Thea has made her own way in her hometown of New York, attending the prestigious and competitive Stuyvesant High School. But one chat with Will, a handsome and witty senior, and she’s a goner—completely hooked on him and unable to concentrate on anything else.
Always worried that she loves Will more than he loves her, Thea is pleasantly surprised when their romance weathers his move to college and Will goes out of his way to involve her in his life. But then, Thea misses a period. And that starts Thea and Will on a wild ride that neither of them could have possibly prepared for. When they decide to keep the baby, their concerned parents chip in what they can to keep Will in school and give both teenagers a comfortable place to raise their child. But when a freak accident leaves Thea shaken and threatens to upend their little family altogether, Thea is forced to turn to the last place she would have chosen for comfort: her stiff, uncompromising father.
This smart, touching first novel brims with realistic, beautifully drawn characters, and reminds us that love is never as easy or predictable as we might like it to be.
