In and Out #1

In and Out is a weekly feature in which I reveal the books that have joined my shelves and the ones I've bid farewell to this week.


The Love That Split the World by April Henry: The synopsis had me at the reference to The Time Traveler's Wife. Can't wait to start reading this one today!
Local Girls by Caroline Zancan: Came across this by chance at the library on Saturday in the new books section and was hooked by the summary.
Weird Girl and What's His Name by Meagan Brothers: This is another book I came across by chance on my library's new YA books shelf. I really love the cover!
All the Birds in the Sky by Charlie Jane Anders: Saving the world with magic? Okay, I'm in.
The Magicians by Lev Grossman: Started watching the Syfy series on Friday night and am loving it so far! And when something I love is also book, you know I've got to read it.
A Shade of Vampire by Bella Forrest: Since I follow a ton of Twilight fan pages on Facebook, my newsfeed has been blowing up with ads for this book, with such convincing marketing lines as "a must-read for Twilight fans." So after seeing a bajillion ads all week, I was like, fine, I'll bite (...pun intended). I have my doubts about this one, but the first book was only ninety-nine cents so I figured I'd give it a shot.


Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult: When I was in high school, I read My Sister's Keeper for the first time, which kickstarted a mild obsession with Jodi Picoult's books. Now that I've been getting into mystery shows and podcasts like Serial and Killing Fields, I was in the mood for a Picoult mystery. I just wasn't feeling this one though. The constant POV switches were seriously testing my patience.

That's it for me! What books have you added to your shelves this week?
