One of my top favorite book shops in Amman is Readers in Cozmo shopping center; I go there at least once a week to get books.
A month ago, the workers informed me that a new branch would open in a new mall in Abdoun called Taj Mall. So I was really excited for November 30, 2011 to come so I can go and get some new releases.
Unfortunately the mall is still under construction and so is the shop.
So I looked around but I 'couldn't' buy a thing! (Q_Q)
Naturally, me being a Bookaholic and all that drove me nuts to look at books but not getting them and reading them. It was a sweet torture!
I found over 30 books I really want!
Here are some of the titles I remember but there's much more:
1- The Iron Witch by Karen Mahoney
2- Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick
3- Awaken by Katie Kacvinsky
4- The Magnolia League by Katie Crouch
5- Breaking Dawn Calender
6- Juliet Immortal by Stacey Jay
7- Clarity by Kim Harrington
8- The Space Between by Brenna Yovanoff
9- Bunheads by Sophie Flack
|"The book to read is not the one which thinks for you, but the one which makes you think. No book in the world equals the Bible for that." |
10- Immortal by Gillian Shields
11- Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning
12- Circle of Fire by Michelle Zink
13- Nocturne by Christine Johnson
14- Illusions by Aprilynne Pike
15- Impossible by Nancy Werlin
16- Extraordinary by Nancy Werlin
17- Deadly Little Games by Laurie Faria Stolarz
18- Exile by Rebecca Lim
19- Muse by Rebecca Lim
20- Mortal Kiss by Alice Moss
21- Mist by Kathryn James
22- Beauty Queens by Libba Bray
23- Ultraviolet by R. J. Anderson
24- Dark Angel by Eden Maguire
25- Divergent by Veronica Roth
26- Dash & Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan
27- Deviant by Adrian McKinty
28- Dead Rules by Randy Russell
29- The Calling by Kelley Armstrong
|“A house without books is like a room without windows. No man has a right to bring up his children without surrounding them with books, if he has the means to buy them.”|
30- Everneath by Brodi Ashton
31- The Juliet Spell by Douglas Rees
32- Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
33- Crave by Melissa Darnell
So until the shop opens their cashier I have to try to forget about all the great titles I saw.
Still I have the first branch in Cozmo to go to whenever I need something a bit... older (^_~)
