Did I Notice Your Book?


Alex J Cavanaugh and Ciara Knight came up with this blog hop. Been browsing through Amazon? Goodreads? The library? See a book that really caught your attention? Here's your chance to give it a shout out.

I've been spending a lot of time in my local library. To the point the other day during my lunch break, I came in to ask a question, freaked out because all the computers were taken...and they handed me a laptop asking, "Where's yours?" (I'm pretty sure they know me now...and they know I write...and I owe them $3.30 in paper fines...still.) Anyways, so all this library dwelling leads to staring at a book case...which means that each time I come in I usually spend about 5-10 minutes browsing, seeing if I'll use my library card again.

So, the book that I've recently noticed was:


Elsewhere by Gabrielle Zevin.

I was drawn to this book because it has a beautiful cover (don't you think?). Then I read the inside cover and was like, "Man, when I'm not drowning in my TBR pile, this one's getting added!" (May have added it to my Christmas list :) ). I don't think Zevin is a NYT best selling author (I googled her and didn't see anything telling me she was) so this book fits the criteria for the hop. And now, I'm excited to read it!

So what about you guys? Any books you've wandered by and fallen in love with?

Please know that if you comment and I don't respond, it's not because I don't love you. It's because I don't have wifi, but I do have a bad memory.
