Borrowed:

The Lover’s Dictionary by David Levithan — I started this before on my Kindle but didn’t finish it. Thought I might try it again.
Animal Farm by George Orwell
The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway
Miles from Nowhere by Nami Mun
The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne — I don’t think I’m actually going to read this right now. I just had to check it out because I love this version. So pretty.
Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta — Okay guys. I think I will finally do it. First I’ll get tissues.
The Vincent Boys by Abbi Glines — *swoon*
In Honor by Jessi Kirby
Ink by Amanda Sun
The Beautiful and the Cursed by Page Morgan

Won:

Time Between Us by Tamara Ireland Stone (from Tamara herself) — Audiobook, woo! (Though I actually don’t do audiobooks. I’m gonna give it a try.
The Indigo Spell by Richelle Mead (from Twilight Sleep) — I didn’t realize it was part of a series when I entered… but this gives me incentive to read it now. πŸ˜€
*All In by Marta Brown (from Summer Lovin’ Read-a-thon)

the scarlet letterSo I went to my library’s annual book giveaway today. Let me tell you, man, there were SO many books. And I brought a good chunk of them home. (Who am I kidding? I barely made a dent in their selection. But I added a bunch of books to my collection, so whatever. I’m all tired and sunburned from the trip now. But I’m happy. That’s the important part.

I also wanted to throw in the cover for The Scarlet Letter because I looove it. I don’t particularly like the book, but I feel like I want to buy a copy purely because I like the cover. *shrugs*

P.S. There’s a good chance I will be changing blog designs soon. Just giving you guys a heads up (:

  1. I have Ink but still haven’t read it 😦 I’m intrigued by the story b/c it involves Japanese and I’ve never read a YA book that focused on Japanese characters. All In by Marta Brown looks like a fun read πŸ™‚ I love the cover; so summer-y and looks like a fun read. I hope you end up loving Animal Farm. I read it a year ago and it was amazing! I love that the whole book was a metaphor.

  2. I brought home a huge stack of books this week, too! I have read both Ink and In Honor, but I wasn’t madly in love with either. Lots of people loved In Honor, though, I just don’t think it was for me. But Ink was meh. I hope you like it, though, and enjoy all your other reads, too πŸ™‚

    1. Yeah, I’ve been hearing very mixed things about Ink. I’m hoping it’s good for me, though. The Japanese aspects of it are exciting for me.

      This is the second or third time I’ve picked up In Honor, so maybe I’ll actually read it now. Haha.

  3. You have so many awesome books! I need to read Animal Farm, Jellicoe Road (from what I’ve heard, tissues are a good idea), Ink, and The Lover’s Dictionary. The Promise of Amazing looks, well, amazing.

    Enjoy all of your new reads!!

    1. I’m super intimidated by Jellicoe Road. I mean, I want to read it because everyone says it’s really good, but I’m also afraid to read it because everyone says it’s good. I don’t want to dislike it and feel disappointed. Haha. Oy.

    1. Jellicoe Road is one that people recommend to me ALL. THE. TIME. so when I saw it at the library I didn’t think twice about snatching it up. (:
