Mom and I went to MPH at Gurney Plaza recently. Since I don't go there often, I might as well use up the gift voucher my sis gave me for Christmas! My aim is to buy Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer but as luck would have it, that title and Eclipse are not available at MPH. They only had Twilight and New Moon.
Since I can't get BD for myself, I got these two books instead:
Inkheart by Cornelia Funke
The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo.
This is the way to pronounce 'despereaux' => des-per-row. I just Googled it up.
It was quite frustrating when I couldn't find the Stephenie Meyer books in MPH. Since they're young adult books and also in the fantasy genre, they should be at either the Teen's or the Fantasy section. Nah. Not there.
Finally, I asked the Information section and the girl showed me where they put the books. At the Kids' section! But they did put a Bestseller word at the top of the shelf. Still, I wouldn't have thought of looking there.
And it looks like Breaking Dawn will have to wait.
Anyway, Daphne Lee of Tots To Teens in Starmag reviewed this book: Across the Nightingale Floor by Lian Hearn. It sounds like a really good book and it's definitely going to be in my To-buy list!
