I recently moved away from my local book store for college, and let me tell you, I'm really missing it. I was home recently and picked up a few used books.
Going Bovine by Libba Bray Printz Award winner, with a weird synopsis. I think this one is going to be rather touching and rather odd.
Unnatural Creatures Stories Selected by Neil Gaiman Just to clarify, Gaiman only wrote one story in this collection, but he collected all of them together for this book. Each story about an unnatural creature is accompanied by a beautiful illustration. Looking forward to reading this one in the fall.
Brave New World by Aldous Huxley Classic Dystopian/Utopian novel I have heard lots of good things about.
The House of Mirth by Edith Wharton I loved Ethan Frome by Wharton and I am eager to read some of her longer works. This one sounds like it has a powerful female protagonist which is always great to see in books, especially classics.
How to be a Woman by Caitlin Moran I have heard lots of positive things about Moran from UK readers, so when this book was in the $2.99 or under section on Barnes and Noble I picked it up.
The Selection by Kiera Cass I finally caved and bought this one for $2.99 on my nook. I heard that Kiera Cass has been signed to write two more books and at least one more novella for the series, so it must be enjoyable!
Let me know what you think of these if you have read them, and let me know what you're stacking your shelves with this week.
