"We should choose a bunch of 'boy books' for her."
"Ooh, that one is really long--should we make her read it? Yeah, she can do it."
"Wait, this one looks good. What's it about?" (The question I was hoping to provoke all along! Mwa-ha-ha!)
I already had a few books that I KNEW I was going to take home, but I committed to reading the top twenty vote getters whether or not my personal favorites were included. They--and you--did manage to choose some books that will be a stretch for me. Two are nonfiction, one looks super creepy, and two look suspiciously like romances. There are also a few that I've had around for a long time, and that I feel like I SHOULD want to read, but just--meh. They've somehow taken on the aspect of a chore, and I've been avoiding them. So I'm excited to have this reason to finally read them, even if the "reason" is something I totally invented for myself.
Without further ado, the books I'm taking home to read are:

People with Holmsian powers of observation may note that people voted for Cut, not Smack. That's because I kind of messed up when I put the cover into the slideshow. I don't own Cut. I do own Smack. I know that cutting and shooting heroin are two entirely different issues, but they are both "issue" books about the same physical size with one word titles, and I got confused.
People with purely average powers of observation may now understand why I am not a bookstagrammer. Me sticking a bunch of books on two mistmatched, beat up tables and taking a poorly framed picture on my phone is as good as it's gonna get, folks.
