What I Got At The Strand

So, if you read my Waiting On Wednesday post you would have saw that I was planning to go The Strand on Wednesday. I did end up going to it and it was the coolest place ever. The amount of the books they have is amazing. One of the things I liked best in their YA section was that I could find books that I usually don't see at Barnes and Noble. Plus, they have an ARC section which was awesome.

As you can see above I ended up getting:

Goldengrove by Francine Prose
The Otherworldlies by Jennifer Anne Kogler
Psych Major Syndrome by Alicia Thompson ( the book I'm most excited to read out of all of them!)
The Comeback Season by Jennifer E. Smith
This Book Isn't Fat, It's Fabulous by Nina Beck

They all look great. I wish I could have found some more of the current ARCs, though. I blame Sharon for that. Since, did you see her post on what she got the day before me at The Strand? I wanted like all the books she got. :(

Though, it's all good, because my mom's already planning to go back to NYC again this Summer for some shopping and to see a broadway show. So, that means another trip to The Strand!! :)

  2. I Love the Strand, but only get there once or twice a year. The ARCS in the basement are still a bargain at $1.49 (up from 99Cents )LOL

  3. lol! You should have told me you were going. I could have gotten you into the secret room in the basement too. I'm jealous of The Otherworldies I didn't see that one when I was there.

  7. I bought the Otherworldlies like 2 months ago and haven't really looked into it. You'll have to tell me if it was good or not.
