New Books - YAY!

I went shopping at two book stores yesterday and it was at once both overwhelming and underwhelming.

It was overwhelming because it's been a LONG time since I have been able to browse a book store by myself, without distraction, for as long as I liked. It was heavenly. I can't tell you how many books I fingered and loved (yes, I really just wrote that. Take it how you like) while I was there. I wanted to take them all home with me - it was quite the sordid affair, actually - but I kept myself in check quite well, I think.

It was underwhelming because it reaffirmed my fear that my town royally sucks. I had a mental list of eight books with me that I wanted to look at. After searching and searching, I found one, ONE, of them at the first book store. I bought it and went to the other.

At the second book store I found three, yes only THREE, of the eight. And one of those three was the one I had already bought. It was very disappointing.

I have to give each store a little more credit than I have, I suppose, because they did each have two other books that were suggested to me. They just weren't ones I had on my priority list. So I suppose they weren't completely devoid of decent reading.

I did get three books out of the trip too, and that's about what I wanted to bring home, so I guess I can't complain too much. When I'm done with these, I'll have to order the others online or go to one of the bigger bookstores about 45 minutes from me.

So, out of the wonderful suggestions everyone gave me over the last couple of days, I came home with the following:

"New Moon" by Stephenie Meyer
"Be More Chill" by Ned Vizzini
and,
"Wake" by Lisa McMann

I'll make sure to write reviews or post my impression of them as I get through them. I still plan on reading everything else that was suggested too, so stay tuned!
