TBR: August 2011

So we've all heard the news that Borders is officially shutting it's doors, for good. I myself, feel this is a sad, sad day in the making, as I remember going to the Walden Books in my neighborhood when I was little, begging my dad to buy me a book. 

But, with the recent announcement of it's upcoming demise, comes something wonderful: CLEARANCE BOOKS!!!

So last weekend, I drug my overly-dramatic hungry husband down to Borders (so hungry, that every few minutes he'd find me, he'd pretend to chew off his arm), did my best at hiding from him, and roamed back and forth down aisle after aisle. Needless to say, 40 minutes later, a husband about ready to pass out, and $90 spent, I found myself with one of the most magnificant To Be Read stacks, I'd seen in a long time.

So, what all did I pick up and add to my ever growing TBR list for August? 

1. TWENTY BOY SUMMER by Sarah Ockler

Just finished reading this one - very touching and so far, one of my favorite YA contemps. See my review from yesterday, posted below!




2. FIXING DELILAH by Sarah Ockler

3. PARANORMALCY by Kiersten White





4. NORTH OF BEAUTIFUL by Justina Chen Headley

5. POSSESSION by Elana Johnson

Elana and I have traveled around in some of the same writerly circles, for several years. I'm so excited to witness her breakthrough YA novel and can't wait to read this one!
