For Your Buying Pleasure - 12/10/12 Week Book Releases

Shining Halo Award

Angel's Shining Halo Award!

Each week one book will get the Shining Halo Award for being my most anticipated book of the week! The one I can't wait to rush out and buy! This week the Shining Halo Award goes to...

Love is awkward, Amelia should know.

From the moment she sets eyes on Chris, she is a goner. Lost. Sunk. Head over heels infatuated with him. It's problematic, since Chris, 21, is a sophisticated university student, while Amelia, is 15.

Amelia isn't stupid. She knows it's not gonna happen. So she plays it cool around Chris—at least, as cool as she can. Working checkout together at the local supermarket, they strike up a friendship: swapping life stories, bantering about everything from classic books to B movies, and cataloging the many injustices of growing up. As time goes on, Amelia's crush doesn't seem so one-sided anymore. But if Chris likes her back, what then? Can two people in such different places in life really be together?

Through a year of befuddling firsts—first love, first job, first party, and first hangover—debut author Laura Buzo shows how the things that break your heart can still crack you up.

  2. I can't wait to read Love And Other Parishable Items. I read a bulb from Falling Kingdoms and I'm sold! It looks amazing! Thanks for our weekly Buying Guide!

    1. I'm excited for Falling Kingdoms as well and I can't wait to get my hands on LaOPI!

  3. The book I'm most looking forward to is Two Graves by Douglas Preston/Child...a Pendergast mystery. This is one of my most anticipated of the year- more so because the publication date was pushed back. I'm about a fifth of the way through and love it. This book is like the final book of a trilogy within the series, so it's really compelling.

    1. I've never read a book by those authors. I'll have to look into that series.

  4. Favorite cover: mehhhh Flawed, I guess. I don't love any this week
    Least Favorite cover: Toss up between All the Broken Pieces, Opal and Snow Whyte (for the spelling of White)

    Most excited about Flawed and the Buzo book!

    1. I don't know why I don't like the cover to Flawed that much... It just does nothing for me :(


I love hearing from you!! Comment short, comment long, I will read them all and try my best to visit you back or reply! :)
