This week I stopped by the book store and just couldn't help myself.

The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff.
Pub Date: Sept 21, 2010.
Pub by Razorbill/Penguin Group.
Hardcover, 343 pages. 

I kept seeing this one on the shelf and wondering, "Should I? Maybe? Next time?". Then when I went in this time, it was on sale, so I figured I'd get over all the inner debating and just pick it up! I've heard it's very creepy, so we'll see how that goes!

The Espressologist by Kristina Springer.
Pub Date: October 27, 2009.
Pub by Farrar, Straus and Giroux (BYR).
Hardcover, 184 pages.

I first heard about this one from a book hop/feature done on another blog and it sounded like a cute read. I noticed it for cheap at the book store and thought I should give it a try! 

The Host by Stephenie Meyer.
Pub Date: January 1, 2008.
Pub by Little, Brown and Company.
Hardcover, 619 pages.

I'll admit, I held off on this one for a while (clearly) after reading the Twilight series. I didn't want to bother with more like that. However, I've heard better things about this one. Also, apparently there is a possibility of two sequels, so I figured I should get caught up.
All that plus the fact that it was on sale for a third of the price plus I got bonus points for the store's rewards card; I figured it was time!


  1. The Replacement looks super creepy. It sounds like the perfect read for Halloween :)
    I agree with you on the Host too. Ever since I read the Twilight series, I wasn't sure about this one. Hope it's better!

    1. You're right, I hadn't even thought of Halloween for The Replacement but it's perfect! That will be a good review for Halloween day, thank you! :)
      As for The Host, I've heard less criticism for it and more positives than the Twilight series, so maybe it'll surprise me!

  2. Have you read The Host yet? It's on my top 10 list. It used to be my number one, but there are so many that deserve credit, it's hard. It's so amazing, read it!

    1. I haven't gotten to The Host yet; I have a ton of library books to get through. I'm hoping to start it soon though. I'm really glad to hear that you think it's so good! Makes me look forward to reading it even more! :)


I'd love to hear what you think!
