Great books you got this week. I quite like the Maximum Ride series. Hope you enjoy reading all your books.

Tarie said...

Hi, Rebecca! The best part was that they were all on sale so they each only cost the equivalent of one or two US dollars!

Nymeth said...

Awesome! I haven't read any of them, but so many have fantastic cover art.

PS: Happy belated birthday, Tarie!! *hugs*

Avril said...

I still have most of the original Sweet Valley Twins, High and University series. :) And Some of the sagas. *sigh* Memories.

Love the new background, by the way (yeah, I've been gone awhile). Belated happy birthday!

Tarie said...

Nymeth, I was thinking of you during the book fair. Especially when I saw the creators of Trese. ;) I wish you had been there. I know you would have picked up and liked a lot of the Philippine books. *hugs*

Aves, I luuurve Sweet Valley High. Hehehe. I miss you!!!

I read Sweet Valley books before and I find it sort of weird that new versions of it just keep on coming out. Haha. Does it have new characters? :)

Tarie said...

Austenfan, the plots and characters are exactly the same. They just updated the books. :o) For example, instead of the twins talking to their friends on the telephone, they are talking to their friends on their cellphones. Their high school still has a newspaper. But their newspaper is now online. Elizabeth still writes for the school news... In fact, she is a blogger! Their car has been updated too, etc. But same themes, issues, problems, etc. :o)
