Stacking the Shelves #1

I'm officially new to all of this book blogging, as testified to by my very plain looking blog, but I am going to try my best to really get this going. I've seen this "Stacking the Shelves" meme on many book blogs that I know follow, so I decided to give it a go. So here we go, I proudly present my first ever Stacking the Shelves as started by Tyngas Reviews.

Today I hit the "local" (45 minutes away and the closest one to me) bookstore to get some much needed reading material. I didn't get what I wanted.....Inbetween by Tara Fuller....but I did get a few that I really wanted to read.

From Books-A-Million:

I know, I know, this isn't a YA read, but considering I started reading Koontz when I was still in high school, Watchers was my first (don't get me started on the HORRIBLE movie version), I had to get his newest work. I have read all of the other Odd Thomas novels and have loved each one. I can't wait to get into this one.

Ah, John Green. I fell in love with his first book Looking for Alaska and cried buckets over The Fault in Our Stars. Since those were the only two I have read so far, I picked up this one to read. At first I had picked up An Abundance of Katherines, but my cousin -who is just as big a reader as I am- told me her sister had it, so I plan on borrowing Katherines from her.
This book has been popping up all over the haul videos, book blogs, etc. I saw this and grabbed it up. I'm hoping this one is going to be a great read. My cousin has already called "next" on this one.

Target purchases:
This is another one that has been all over the book blogs. I was going to wait, but once I read the inside flap, I just had to get it.

I haven't heard of this book, but once I read the description, I just had to pick it up. I love the paranormal stuff, but I also like contemporary reads.

I was surprised when I stumbled across a remarkable good hardback of Twenty Boy Summer for only $1.99 at the Goodwill. My youngest cousin had just told me how awesome this book was, but she had borrowed the copy she read. 

I'm not sure what I'll start reading first, but I think it will either be Twenty Boy Summer or This is Not a Test.

What books have you added to your To Be Read pile?
