Friday Buys 1/6-20/12

I have a small Friday Buys these last two weeks, because I'm short of money, but obviously I can't say no to a few great deals here and there...  ;)

Excuse the pictures...I had to take them on my phone because someone was borrowing the camera...

BOUGHT -

The Watcher in the Woods by Robert Liparulo - $1
This is the second book in a series of five or six, I believe.  I own the first, and now this one, and my sister raaaaves about them.  Lovelovelovesssss them.  So I suppose I'll have to get to them very soon.

Sunlight and Shadow by Cameron Dokey - $2
I really enjoyed the Once Upon A Time retelling I read, Anastasia's Secret.  It was fun, with a few major flaws, but it was so adorable the flaws didn't matter.  The book is short and thin so I'm sure it'll take me a day or so to read.  Excited!

Things Not Seen by Andrew Clements - $.50
I read this book like 4 years ago and really enjoyed it.  I wanted my sisters to read it and I may make time to read it again someday... 50 cents - I'm down!

Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay - $3
I'm going to read this one for a book club and I'm beyond excited!  I've never been a part of a book club before (crazy, huh?!) and it's with two ladies I love very much and a small group of ladies I've never met but am sure I will love.  This is the first book I'll have read with them.  :)

  2. Ahhhh!! LOVELOVELOVE!!! They all look so pretty and wonderful and neat and oooohhhh! And thank you sooo much for sharing that photo of The Breakup Artist. I was wondering what she wrote and that message made me grin from ear-to-ear. Don't go breaking any hearts! :D And you didn't tell me you won something through the Goodreads First Reads program! Or did you...? Oh no, I feel bad now. But congrats! That's awesome! All the books look amazing anyway, and I can't wait to hear your thoughts on them! (:
