So another weekend at the Borders' closing sale. I'm thinking after this set there might be only 1 or 2 trips left to Borders. But I guess we'll see what hidden gems we can find. On to the books!
Acceptance by David L. Marcus
I've read fiction books with story similar to this, but never anything that's actually true. In case you can't make out the subtitle, this is basically a memoir of a high school guidance counselor. I think it'll be well worth it's $2.00 price.
Storyteller: The Authorized biography of Roald Dahl by Donald Sturrock
Another bargain buy that I probably wouldn't have bought full price, but do think it's a book I'd enjoy. I read most, if not all, of Dahl's books growing up but really don't know that much about him so I'm it turns out to be really interesting.
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
I finally picked up Anna! I've heard nothing but amazing things about this, I'm just hoping it can live up to all the hype.
Seventeenth Summer by Maureen Daly
Another bargain buy. I don't know much about it, but think it looks like a cute summer read. (Yes, it's September, but the fact it's still 100 degrees outside means it's still summer to me.)
Planning Your Wedding Sucks by Joanne Kimes & Elena Donovan Mauer
I finally remember to check in Borders' wedding section. It was pretty much picked over, but decided to go with the one, because the title pretty much expresses how I feel about the whole wedding planning right now.
Broken Promises by Elizabeth Cobbs Hoffman
This is a fairly new-ish historical fiction I've heard good things about. (Plus I love the cover!) It takes place during the U.S. Civil War, but partially in London as well.
Juliet by Anne Fortier
I won this through a giveaway from the publisher. I know I just read another retelling of Romeo & Juliet, but I'm more than willing to read another!
So overall it was a pretty big week for me book-wise. Hopefully yours was too!
