This was also a great week in books for me! I got a copy of Julianna Baggott's PURE, which I can't wait to read but am waiting for the right mood to strike. I have heard wonderful things about the novel and have read a previous book by Baggott (which I really enjoyed) but at the moment, I am not really in the mood for dark and depressing. Maybe later on in the week?
I also got BEAUTIFUL CREATURES and BLOOD RIGHTS. I had ordered them a few weeks ago and was super excited when they arrived on Friday. I am late getting on the BEAUTIFUL CREATURES train but better late than never!
Also, I met up with my friend Amy yesterday and since we are both huge book hoarders, we picked out a few on our shelves that we were willing to separate with and swapped. She gave me Mindy Kaling's book IS EVERYONE HANGING OUT WITHOUT ME? which I was drooling over when it first came out. If you haven't noticed, I am a huge fan of celebrity essay/bio/memoirs. This is definitely something I will get to this week! She also lent me her copy of DAMNED by Chuck Palahniuk. I have heard amazing things about Chuck's books, but have never picked one up for myself. His reputation as an extremely dark humor writer has me hoping I will be as drawn to his books as I am to Douglas Coupland. You either love Coupland, or you can't stand him. I am on the LOVE side of things. Hopefully the same thing will happen with Chuck!
And that's it for me! Stay tuned for upcoming posts -- review of THE SPACE BETWEEN and a recap of The Book Lover's Ball!
