Hoarders, Episode 80: Barnes & Noble, OKC

So a few weeks ago, my husband and I went to Oklahoma for a benefit concert to help raise funds for the victims of the Spring tornadoes that levelled much of Moore and other parts of Oklahoma. We had a great time exploring Oklahoma City despite the almost unbearable heat. It was like a blast of hot air when you open an oven door. Seriously.  Anyway, every time we go somewhere, a bookshop stop is always on our itinerary.

Barnes & Noble on North May Avenue was where we ended up;  a twenty minute cab ride from downtown Oklahoma City where our hotel was. I found a few books but am admittedly disappointed that I didn’t get much. I did, however, find a very cool book bag to go along with my loot.

It has cats dressed as literary greats: Austen, Dickens, and the Brontë sisters. It’s perfect for when I go on my bookshop jaunts.

And here are the books that I found:

Quarantine #2 by Lex Thomas

I haven’t read the first book yet but this series comes highly recommended. It’s one of those adrenaline rush type of read that I need to psych myself up
for.

Mortal Fire by Elizabeth Knox 
I know nothing about this book. It sounds good though. 
Someday, Someday, Maybe by Lauren Grahah
I’m expecting some rapid-fire convos and quips. 
Belladonna by Fiona Paul
Goodreads

I also could not ever, ever resist buying a book from an airport bookstore. This one, I bought at a place called Author’s Bookstore in Minneapolis International Airport. Well, it turns out, this book is actually book number 5 of a series I haven’t read (story of my life). So now, I’m hunting for book number one. Le sigh.

The White Princess by Philippa Gregory
Goodreads

That’s all I’ve got. It’s surprising to me that I only found four books on my jaunt. I usually spend sometime in the bookstore and peruse as studiously as I can. They’re good picks anyway because I didn’t see them in my local bookshop. 

So…show me what you got?
