Last spring I made a list of books I almost bought in the bookstore but ended passing up for another book. My typical bookstore routine is to float around and take photos of all the pretty books I want to buy but know I shouldn’t with the intention of buying them some other time.
“Eye Candy” is a series I started in order to have somewhere concrete to list these books so they’re not just taking up space as photos on my phone. I probably need to do these more frequently because as I was preparing to write this I noticed I had taken a photo of the same book in two different bookstores! Ugh I’m terrible.
Hopefully the outcome with this is that by forcing this books out of my phone and into the universe I remember them and add them to my ever-growing TBR and then maybe read them???
This post has a plethora of bookstores: 1 indie, 1 used, and 2 different chains. It contains a total of 14 books!
I’ve set this post up with the book, a simplified summary from Goodreads, and a short note about the book. Cover photos are linked to their Goodreads page!

If There’s No Tomorrow by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Lena Wise is always looking forward to tomorrow, especially at the start of her senior year. She’s ready to pack in as much friend time as possible, to finish college applications, and to maybe let her childhood best friend Sebastian know how she really feels about him. Until one choice, one moment, destroys everything. Now Lena isn’t looking forward to tomorrow. Not when Sebastian might never forgive her for what happened. For what she let happen.
I hadn’t heard of this book before seeing it in the store and honestly the summary is so vague I have absolutely no idea what it’s about but it sounds so intriguing and also has a surprisingly high rating.
A Semi-Definitive List of Worst Nightmares by Krystal Sutherland
Ever since Esther Solar’s grandfather met Death, her entire family has been doomed to suffer one great fear in their lifetime. Ester doesn’t yet have a great fear because anything that might trigger a phobia is off-limits and is meticulously recorded in her semi-definitive list of worst nightmares. Esther thinks she has it all figured out, until she’s reunited with an old elementary school classmate Jonah Smallwood. Together they face their greatest fears, one debilitating phobia at a time, only to discover the one fear they hadn’t counted on: love.
Rereading this summary has me so confused as to why I didn’t pick up this book when I had the chance?? It was also a book I’d never heard of before but wow it sounds right up my alley and also has a surprisingly high rating on Goodreads. Continue reading “Eye Candy: Books I Almost Bought #02”
