Friday Finds (09/10/2010)

Friday Finds at the Store is a weekly feature here at My Tea Time is Book Time. It is totally easy and I encourage you let me know what you find. 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!!!

Crank (Crank, #1)From the back cover of Crank by Ellen Hopkins

Kristina is the perfect daughter: gifted high school junior, quiet, never any trouble. Then she meets the monster: crank. And what begins as a wild ride turns into a struggle for her mind, her soul---her life.

(This book was bought from a store called FullyBooked.)

Impulse (Impulse, #1) From the back cover of Impulse by Ellen Hopkins.
Tony's painful childhood memories can be quelled only through pills. Vanessa has a secret that keeps her coming back to the blade. And Connor seems to have the perfect life on the outside, but his inward battle with his parents, his peers, and himself give him one last choice---to pull the trigger.

These are three lives that would have been cut short if not for the hasty intervention by loved ones. Or fate. Now they are given a second chance at a better life---but only if they help one another, and if they find the strength to let go of their inner demons. For good.
(This book bought at a store called FullyBooked.)

Pretties (Uglies, #2) From the back cover of Pretties by Scott Westerfeld

Tally has finally become pretty. Now her looks are beyond perfect, her clothes are awesome, her boyfriend is totally hot, and she's completely popular. It's everything she's ever wanted.

But beneath all the fun---the nonstop parties, the high-tech luxury, the total freedom---is a nagging sense that something's wrong. Something important. Then a message from Tally's ugly past arrives. Reading it, Tally remembers what's wrong with pretty life, and the fun stops cold.

Now she has to choose between fighting to forget what she knows and fighting for her life---because the authorities don't intend to let anyone with this information survive.
(This book was a gift from my FullyBooked.)

What did you find???

***Now go and grab your fave cup of tea (or whatever beverage you prefer) and HAPPY readings***
