a little bit different.
The hubby didn’t get the job. A employee who was already trained and with the company (has been for 28 years apparently) put in for a transfer, so of course, that guy got the job. We’re bummed, but still optimistic. Just means there is something else even better out there!
But, since I was feeling a smidge bummed, I thought it called for a little retail therapy. And, as most bibliophiles know, retail therapy really means book shopping! I hit Barnes & Noble today, list in hand, and came out with nothing on it! LOL I’ve been feeling the desire to read something a little different lately. All this Sherlock Holmes, Wilkie Collins, and Don Quixote were leading me (more like PUSHED) over to the Young Adult aisle. So I willingly went! Our B&N’s YA section is abismally tiny, but there was still a bit to choose from.
(As an aside, I am SO upset that the new editions of New Moon by Stephenie Meyer have an excerpt from Eclipse in them. I am so NOT going to buy a new edition to read it, but I really want to read it. If I hadn’t been on my lunch hour I would have plopped my big ole preggers butt down in a chair and read it. Alas, I didn’t have time! Damn! End aside.)
So, I picked up:
Sarah Dessen’s The Truth About Forever. I’ve been meaning to read one of her books for ages upon ages! So I finally bought one. This one looks gooooood. And I thnk it’s one I’ll identify with; it’s about a girl who, among other things, is grieving for her father.
The Summer King by OR Melling book 2 in The Chronicles of Faerie. Which is odd, because it’s the second in a series and I don’t have the first one. But they didn’t have it, it’s a series I really want to read, so I’m going to order number 1. They had number 3 too, but it was hardback. Going to wait for that one.
The Naming by Alison Croggon. I’d never heard of this, but reading the back, it sounded really good. And it’s the first in a series. Thought I’d give it a try.
And I also got Colleen Gleason’s The Rest Falls Away. It sounds so good with all it’s talk of vampires and such. With the next one in the series coming out soon, I figured it was time to catch up!
