New on the Shelves, Vol. 2


I have this problem with needing to read new releases as soon as possible, even by authors whom I've never read anything by. Luckily, my library has this snazzy tab on their website called "suggest a title" — and suggesting ALL the books is exactly what I've been doing. I was able to borrow two January releases (All Fall Down by Ally Carter and Love, Lucy by April Lindner) as well as A Little Something Different by Sandy Hall.


I wasn't able to resist buying Landline by Rainbow Rowell when I saw it on Book Outlet's website (I really need to start avoiding that page ...). I've wanted a copy since it came out last July but couldn't bring myself to spend $16, so I am ECSTATIC that I found it for a great price.

The other three books that bought - because I can't just buy one book - were To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han, Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson, Nowhere but Home by Liza Palmer. I've heard nothing but good things about Liza Palmer from Hannah at So Obsessed With!

Lastly, I received Making Pretty by Corey Ann Haydu in the mail after winning a giveaway on Goodreads. I've only ever won one book (Ten Girls to Watch by Charity Shumway) so this was REALLY exciting!

Did you purchase or receive any new books this week? Have you read any of the books I mentioned? Do you suggest titles for your city's library?

  1. Oh my gosh! I've never heard of Book Outlet, and now I'm looking at everything!


    I picked up Jenny's book a few weeks ago, but I've been too busy reading my library checkouts that I haven't opened it yet.

  2. Ooooh pretty books! I love going to the library, but new releases are always taken before I can snatch them up! Yesterday I bought A Darker Shade of Magic and Vicious by V.E. Schwab!

  7. I want to read Landline so badly! It's the only one of Rainbow Rowell's that I haven't read and I'm dying because I love, love, love her voice. And now I'm going to buy it because how can you not when it's only $6?

  9. I still have yet to read both Landline and Attachments, but Fangirl is one of my favorites :) Sorry in advance (to both you and your credit card) for introducing you to Book Outlet! Don't get too crazy :p

  10. I've not read any Corey Ann Haydu either, but I'm hoping to read OCD Love Story before I start Making Pretty. I always want to read in order of publication :x


    I think you should look into suggesting books! I didn't know I could do it until recently and it is so great. Instead of purchasing all the books I want to read, I just ask my library to buy them :p
