As I exited said doctor's office, I thought I need a break before I head back to the house. Now I can't take the kid just anywhere, but where can I go so I can relax while she's with me? Of course, I made a beeline for my happy place. Where is that (you may ask)? Well, let's say it together: BARNES AND NOBLE!
I could feel the tension just melt away as I pulled into the parking lot. People who happened to notice me must have thought I was a bit loopy because of the huge grin plastered on my face. I got the stroller out, plopped my daughter in, and practically flew inside. I don't know about you, but when I first enter the store I stop for a moment and just inhale. I mean, there's nothing like the scent of all those new books surrounding me!
I proceeded to spend the next hour walking around in peace, browsing through the selections. I was in heaven! One, there wasn't a lot of people in there, unlike Saturdays when you can barely move. Two, every single person in the store always behaves in a civilized manner. Have you ever noticed that? No hollering at kids (the few that I saw were very quiet). Even my child behaved:) Come to think of it, I didn't hear any raised voices period. Unlike trips to Wally World, um, Walmart where you may come across God knows what kind of behavior in the customers. Yeah, you know what I'm talking about:)
So, after all that browsing, I decided on three books: The Dark Devine by Bree Despain, Fallen by Lauren Kate, and The Breach by Patrick Lee. I heard about the first two by reading blogs, but I first learned of The Breach on Twitter. A few people who I'm following tweeted last week about how good it was. Now to decide which one to read first.
So have you spent any time at your happy place lately? And have you read any of the books I selected? Which one would you recommend that I read first?
