Friday Finds - September 4th (Bday Late!)

Yes, I'm late on my Friday Finds this week! Yesterday was my Birthday, and now I'm all of 23 years old! Yay! Anywho, sorry for the late post, I was out having fun for once! yay!!

Here's what I found! :



Publisher : Katherine Tegan Books
Release Date : January, 2010
Series : Yes, #1 Half-Mermaid Princess

From Author Website :

Lily Sanderson has a secret, and it’s not that she has a huge crush on gorgeous swimming god Brody Bennett, who makes her heart beat flipper-fast. Unrequited love is hard enough when you’re a normal teenage girl, but when you’re half human, half mermaid like Lily, there’s no such thing as a simple crush.

Lily’s mermaid identity is a secret that can’t get out, since she’s not just any mermaid – she’s a Thalassinian princess. When Lily found out three years ago that her mother was actually a human, she finally realized why she didn’t feel quite at home in Thalassinia, and she’s been living on land and going to Seaview high school ever since, hoping to find where she truly belongs. Sure, land has its problems – like her obnoxious, biker boy neighbor Quince Fletcher – but it has that one major perk – Brody. The problem is, mermaids aren’t really the casual dating type – when they “bond,” it’s for life.

When Lily’s attempt to win Brody’s love leads to a tsunami-sized case of mistaken identity, she is in for a tidal wave of relationship drama, and she finds out, quick as a tailfin flick, that happily-ever-after never sails quite as smoothly as you planned.


Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
Publisher : HarperCollins
Release Date : March 2, 2010
Series : No
From Amazon :

What if you had only one day to live? What would you do? Who would you kiss? And how far would you go to save your own life?

Samantha Kingston has it all—looks, popularity, the perfect boyfriend. Friday, February 12th should be just another day in her charmed life. Instead, it’s her last. The catch: Samantha still wakes up the next morning. In fact, she re-lives the last day of her life seven times, until she realizes that by making even the slightest changes, she may hold more power than she had ever imagined.

Thank you Kim! I didn't really get 'loot', lol..not even a package in the mail of books..lol. I did enjoy the time I got to spend with my fiance though, even if the movie wasn't great, lol. Plus, someone from work was kind enough to switch days with me so I could have my bday off :)
