The Walmart in my hometown has been shelving books about a week before their release dates. When Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen was coming out, I found it at Walmart 8 days before it was supposed to be there. Tonight I found Blue Moon by Alyson Noel (which is scheduled to come out July 7th) and I'm not sure how long it has been on the shelf because I haven't been in to check the book section in about a week. I wonder if the books being put out has a big effect...? I'm sure for bigger names it would...

Anyhow, it works out well for me because I am impatient and a week early is better than nothing!


  1. I found Along for the ride 8 days early too. I was actually last night going to see if they had blue moon but we went to fireworks instead of walmart.

  2. Yeah, I got Blue Moon from the library last week... crazy huh? I know, you're probably wondering why I haven't read and reviewed it yet (so many books!).

  3. Its crazy that the library already had it! They must have gotten it really early then... unless your library is much faster than mine!

  4. Man, my library takes months to get new books.

  5. OMG, I really want to read this book!

    I can't wait until it comes out.


    Great review.

  6. I wish my WalMart did that. It's not good for the publishing companies or the authors... but it's fantastic for everyone else.

    I can't comment on anything from the review since I didn't read it - Evermore is on my list to read and I don't want to spoil anything. I did read the part about Edward Syndrome and I love it!

  7. I want to add that my WalMart does do it too. I bought it today!


Make sure you whisper, I'm hiding!
