Book Haul


This weekend I headed to a local thrift store in search of some new books! This place has a huge book section where all of the hardcover books are only $2.99 each! There's also a deal- buy 4 get a 5th book free! So I got all five of these books for only $12.00!

Here's a little description from each:

The Almost Truth by Eileen Cook-  Teen con artist Sadie might be over her head. To escape her backwards small town, delusional mom, jailbird dad, and the tiny trailer where she was raised, she also must leave Brendan. Sadie wants a better life, and she has been working steadily toward it, one con at a time, until her mother wipes out her savings.
(Already finished this book! Read it in less than a day, review will be soon!)

Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella-  Lara Lington has always had an overactive imagination, but suddenly that imagination seems to be in overdrive. Normal professional twenty-something young women don't get visited by ghosts. Or do they?

Where We Belong by Emily Giffin- Marian Caldwell is a thirty-six year old television producer, living her dream in New York City. With a fulfilling career and satisfying relationship, she has convinced everyone, including herself, that her life is just as she wants it to be. But one night, Marian answers a knock on the door...only to find Kirby Rose, an eighteen-year old girl with a key to a past that Marian thought she had sealed off forever. From the moment Kirby appears on her doorstep, Marian's perfectly constructed world- and her very identity- will be shaken to its core, resurrecting ghosts and memories of a passionate young love affair that threaten everything that has come to define her.

Sing You Home by Jodi Picoult- One miscarriage too many spelled the end of Max and Zoe Baxter's marriage. Though the former couple went quite separate ways, their fates remained entangled: After veering into alcoholism, Max is saved in multiple senses by his fundamentalist conversion; Zoe, for her part, finds healing relief in music therapy and the friendship, then romantic love with Vanessa, her counsellor. After Zoe and Vanessa, now married, decide to have a baby, they realize that they must battle with Max, who objects on both religious and financial grounds.

The 8th Confession- Behind the doors of San Francisco's grandest mansions, beautiful people party the nights away in a heady mix of money, drugs, drink and sex. But the rich and famous aren't the only ones with keys to these most exclusive of addresses, someone else is intent on crashing the party.
