Friday Finds at the Store (09/18/09)

Friday Finds at the Store is a meme hosted by Jennay at My Tea Time is Book Time. It is totally easy and everyone can join. Basically just post the books you found at the bookstore or library. Now others can see the great finds you had and maybe they will pick it up on their next bookstore/library run. HAPPY readings!!!

Here are my finds...

From the back cover of Rebel Angels by Libba Bray

Ah, Christmas! Gemma Doyle is looking forward to a holiday from Spence Academy---spending time with her friends in the city, attending balls in fancy gowns with plunging necklines, and dallying with the handsome Simon Middleton. Yet amid these distractions, her visions intensify---visions of three girls dressed in white, to whom something horrific has happened that only the realms can explain.

The lure is strong, and soon Gemma, Fel
icity, and Ann are turning flowers into butterflies in the enchanted world to which Gemma takes them. To the girls' great joy, their beloved Pippa is there as well, eager to complete their circle of friendship.

But all is not well in the realms---or out. Kartik is back, desperately insisting to Gemma that she must bind the magic, lest colossal disaster befall her. Gemma is willing to comply, for this would bring her face to face with her late mother's greatest friend, now Gemma's foe---Circe. Until Circe is destroyed, Gemma cannot live out her destiny. but finding Circe proves a most perilous task...

Rebel Angels teems with Victorian thrills and chills that play out against the backdrop of 1895 London, a
place of shadows and light...where inside great beauty can lie a rebel angel.
From the back cover of The Fortunes of Indigo Skye by Deb Caletti

Eighteen-year-old Indigo Skye feels like she has it all---a waitress job she loves, an adorable refrigerator-delivery-guy boyfriend, and a home life that's slightly crazed but rich in love. Until a mysterious man at the restaurant leaver her a 2.5-million-dollar tip, and her life as she knows it is transformed.

At first it's amazing: a hot new car, an enormous flat-screen TV, and presents for everyone she cares about. Indigo laughs off the warnings that money changes people, because she knows it won't happen to her. Until the
day she looks around and realizes everything important is slipping away, and no amount of money can buy it all back...
From the back cover of Keeping the Moon by Sarah Dessen
Fifteen-year-old Colie has never fit in. First, it was because she was fat. Then, after she lost the weight, it was because of a reputation that she didn't deserve. So when she's sent to stay with her eccentric aunt Mira for the summer, Colie doesn't expect too much. After all, why would anyone in Colby, North Carolina, want to bother with her when no one back home does?

But Colby turns out to be a nice surprise for Colie. Almost without trying, she lands herself a job at the Last Chance Bar and Grill. There she meets fellow waitresses Morgan and Isabel---two best friends who teach her what friendship is all about and help her learn to appreciate who she really is.

What did you find???


  1. I haven't found anything this week, because I'm trying to cut down on the amount of books I buy (heh, like that's going to happen) to save money.
    But, I recently joined Book Hopper, and I'm waiting for the 4th Succubus book by Richelle Mead to come through the post.

  2. That's ^ funny, because as broke as I am, I was just thinking, I get paid today, I should buy books...

    Also, I left you an award...

  3. I have yet to pick up A Sweet Far Thing. Maybe I'll get it now that it's in paperback. :)

  4. I have Sweet Far Thing but I haven't read it yet. I need to!

  5. Thanks for checking this out everyone!!!

    I know I should cut down on buying books, but i don't have a library, so this is the only way right now for me to read!!!
