Instead of the stacks I usually make in my library loot posts I just HAD to share these adorbs covers with you. Except Beauty, that is a hideous one, n’est-ce pas? But it’s the only cover my library had!
The Sugar Queen, by Sarah Addison Allen – This is her second book, I read her first one (Garden Spells, they are both standalone novels) last week and fell in love with her characters, the deft way she handled multiple points of view, and the hints of magic in their lives. I also have her recently released third book on hold at the lib too!
Stay, by Allie Larkin – ok the author’s name sounds sooo familiar to me. I facebooked her, googled her, thought maybe I went to college with her??? nada. Just a familiar name I guess, but it drove me crazy. Anywhoosits I read a review of this book in People magazine as a Great Read for Animal Lovers and a Feel Good Book. What an appealing description for my preferences! Also it has a german shepard on the cover and I had 2 (not black ones) growing up. Also it looks a little like my mutt, just 100 lbs bigger. So of COURSE I have to read this :)
Gimme A Call, by Sarah Mlynowski – who posted about this one? was it you? I’m sure I heard about it on someone’s blog but I can’t remember where! i was intrigued by Reeder Read’s review. I thought the premise was really cute, senior year Devi just got dumped by her boyfriend of 4 years, and she had slowly lost all of her friends through high school too. When she drops her phone into the mall fountain after wishing she could change her high school experience the ONLY person the phone will call is her freshman year self. When she tries to fix/change the past/future hijinks, temporary tragedy, and life lessons ensue!
Beauty, by Robin McKinley – ok I only just “liked” Sunshine, which is the McKinley book people rave over, so I want to try more by her to see if I can find one of her stories that would be a better fit for me. I think Beauty was her debut novel back in 1978 and is a YA retelling of Beauty and the Beast.
