Dirty Little SecretSince You AskedThe Bat: The First Inspector Harry Hole Novel 
Brooklyn GirlsThis is W.A.R.The Book of Secrets
Dirty Little Secret by Jennifer Echols
A fiddler player gets roped into a band with a sexy guitar player even though she's supposed to be staying out of the spotlight. I've actually already started this. My review will be up Monday.
Since You Asked by Maurene Goo
A Korean-American teenager lands her own column in the school newspaper after one of her rants gets accidentally published.
The Bat by Jo Nesbo
I've always been curious about this series and could never understand why the first book available in America was the third one. The first book is finally being released here.
Brooklyn Girls by Gemma Burgess
The first book in a series about 5 20-somethings sharing a Brooklyn brownstone.
This is W.A.R. by Lisa and Laura Roecker
A group of girls band together to take down a boy and his family after he murders one of their friends.
The Book of Secrets by Elizabeth Joy Arnold
I'm not exactly sure what this one is about, but it's billed as a combination of Eleanor Brown and Gillian Flynn, which, seriously--sold!
What I Bought
The Weird Sisters 
The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown
I've already read this delightful novel of three adult sisters, all named after Shakespeare heroines, who all find themselves living at home. I loved it and found it for $2 in great condition. I love my used bookstore.
What I snagged from the library 

 The Tao of Martha: My Year of LIVING; Or, Why I'm Never Getting All That Glitter Off of the DogTruth or Dare (Truth or Dare, #1)Mothership (Ever-Expanding Universe, #1)
 The Bling Ring: How a Gang of Fame-Obsessed Teens Ripped Off Hollywood and Shocked the WorldLadies' Night 
The Tao of Martha by Jen Lancaster
I love her books.
Truth or Dare  by Jacqueline Green
I've been dying to read this book about a game of truth or dare that spins out of control. I honestly don't know why.
I've heard this book about a spaceship full of pregnant teens is hilarious.
The Bling Ring by Nancy Jo Sales
The author of the newspaper article has expanded her research into a book now that it is a movie. I've read the first few pages and can already tell it probably won't hold my interest for an entire book, but that is what the library is for.
Ladies' Night by Mary Kay Andrews
This book is huge! I was surprised at how big it was when I picked it up (I'd pre-ordered). To be honest, this one probably won't happen in the 3 week time limit due to review books, but hopefully I'll get to it eventually.
Well that's all for me. What did you add to your shelves this week? Link me up!

  22. Ooh, I definitely want to read Jennifer Echols' book! It looks cute. :) And I'm sad to hear that The Bling Ring isn't terribly interesting! I really want to see the movie but guess I'll pass on the book.

Hello, there! Thanks for taking the time to comment. I read each and every one and will do my best to respond--usually on your blog instead of on mine. I will, however, always answer direct questions. Due to serious time restraints, this blog is now an award free zone, but I appreciate the thought!
