Hoarders, Books Edition: Episode 87

Good morning!

This weekend, husband and I are on a mini-vacay in San Diego. We go here once a year to watch the Chargers play. Our record, unfortunately, hasn’t been that good. This year, we’re playing the Dallas Cowboys and as much as I hate to be pessimistic, the odds are definitely not in our favour. 
Yesterday, we went to a Barnes & Noble and picked up some books. I’m a little disappointed that they ALSO do not have a single copy of Where the Stars Still Shine by Trish Doller. On Tuesday, I lamented on Twitter that my favourite bookstore didn’t have them:
In which, they responded with this:
Anyway, I guess I’ll have to order a copy on-line. I picked up some good books on my jaunt yesterday. 
 Starry Nights by Daisy Whitney
The Truth About You & Me by Amanda Grace
 Until it Hurts to Stop by Jennifer R. Hubbard
Six Months Later by Natalie D. Richards

Chasing Shadows by Swati Avashti
Not a Drop to Drink by Mindy McGinnis
That’s all the books I picked up yesterday. I actually have quite a few more that I picked up this week but I didn’t have time to make my post. I’ll probably do those next week. 
I just remembered that Tiffany of Escaping One Book at a Time told me she was going to send me her copy of Six Months Later. So, Tiff, if you’re reading this, so sorry! I completely forgot. But thank you, thank you for being awesome!
  • I hope you enjoyed your vacation! This is a smallish haul for you (!!) but still a good one. I have yet to read my copy of Not a Drop to Drink but that is coming soon! Boo @ Chapters for not having a copy of Where the Stars Still Shine!

  • The book was so awesome, Candace! I finished it in practically one sitting. <3 Adam!!!

  • I'm reading Six Months Later right now. I'm not far in, but it's really good so far! It looks like you got a ton of books though, a lot of awesome ones!

  • Thanks, Rachel. Six Months Later is my next read, actually. I can't wait. 🙂

  • Ah! Isn't it the worst when you can't find the ONE book you want? I hope you find a copy soon! 🙂

    I read Six Months Later last week and really liked it. And I'm so, so curious about Starry Nights. I keeping seeing it and thinking I should read it, so I'll be looking forward to your thoughts on it! Happy reading!! 🙂

  • Thanks, Alise. I'm halfway through The Truth About You & Me and it's heading in the non-HEA, I'm afraid. We shall see, I supposed. 🙂

  • I'm looking forward to reading it too. I'm a bit familiar with Craig Phillips' illustrations so it'll be interesting, for sure. 🙂 Thanks, Maja!

  • I hope so too, Brandi. 🙂

  • Not a Drop was a great dystopia, can't wait to read your thoughts on it. As for the others, I haven't read them yet except for The Truth About You & Me, which I'm also curious about your thoughts because everyone seems to either love or hate it. Enjoy your new reads!

  • I'm starting Chasing Shadows tonight. I simply adore Swati and this idea of graphic novel incorporated in the story is absolutely fascinating.
    Oh, and I've been hearing such fabulous things about Six Months Later. Same for Not a Drop to Drink.
    I hope you're having a great mini-vacation.
    Happy reading.
