Yay for birthday books! Nobody reads Lauren Conrad! That is so true. I feel like there are always a million of her books in ever used book store I go to. So maybe everyone does read her, but then tries to sell her back? Or I guess give her to Goodwill, like you said too. I love Sabriel! Also, you picked up my two favorite Sarah Dessen books. So, yay!

Yay for Percy! Keeping the Moon was a really fun read. Not a favorite Sarah Dessen because it is one of her early ones, but I am a huge fan of hers. I've added The Girl with Glass Feet to my tbr. Super huge haul and I bet you were really happy! Thanks for finally showing us your birthday haul!

Maybe people buy Lauren Conrad and then, too embarrassed to be seen in the store with it once sanity sets in and they realize they don't want it, they donate the book to Goodwill.

Yay! I have so many Sarah Dessen books!

Thanks, though my birthday was over a month ago. I'm a slacker!

Percy is the cutest!

Yeah, even if it's not her best, I'm pretty convinced all of Dessen's stuff is worth reading at least once, and probably more than that.

Hopefully The Girl with Glass Feet is good. I know nothing about it. Haha!
