Time for this week's Bookaholics Anonymous meeting. So hi, my name's Melanie and I'm addicted to books. This week I purchased 5 books. Yes 5, but I'm going to bury my shame and only tell you about the last one I picked up.
Last Book Purchased:
The Secret Year, by Jennifer R. Hubbard
Synopsis from Goodreads:
Colt and Julia were secretly together for a year, and no one ever knew, not even Julia's boyfriend. Why would they-they were from two different crowds. Julia lived in her country club world and Colt . . . didn't.
Then Julia dies in a car accident. Colt is devastated but can't mourn openly, and he's tormented that he may have played a part in her death. And when Julia's journal ends up in his hands, he is forced to relive their year together-just when he is trying to forget. The problem is, how do you get over someone who was never really yours to begin with?
And here's why I purchased it:
I've been wanting to read this book for some time now but haven't gotten around to it since it was not available on my Nook and required a trek to the Barnes & Noble in the suburbs. However, I recently made the trip and picked up not only a copy for myself but one for a lucky blog follower as well. (Giveaway details below) It's a beautiful book. The cover feels like satin. I looked like a freak rubbing it in the aisle at B&N, but once you touch it, you'll understand.
