I may have gone a little bit crazy buying books this week.
In my defense, many of these were purchased from the local used book store.
If you haven’t read The Maze Runner (Book 1) and The Scorch Trials (Book 2), you need to get them immediately. This series is an exciting and mind bending read.
This is book two of The Mortal Instruments series. Book one, City Of Bone, contained both angels and incest. I am sure City Of Ashes will be full of surprises.
I enjoyed Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver so much that picking up this series is a no brainer.
The Virgin Blue by Tracy Chevalier is one of my favorite books. I am typically not that interested in historical fiction but this well-written novel does an amazing job of tying together a modern-day story with a historical one with the pacing of a mystery. This book is excellent and I highly recommend it.
Carl Hiaasen is a new to me author and one that is very popular. This book is a mystery for kids set in the Florida Everglades. I am discovering how much I enjoy children’s literature lately.
The Titan’s Curse (Percy Jackson And The Olympians # 3) by Rick Riordan is another kids book on my to be read list. I loved the first two books and am sure will enjoy this new to me Percy Jackson adventure.
It’s Kind Of A Funny Story by Ned Vizzini first caught my eye as a movie.
The movie came out in 2010 and I plan on watching it after I read the book.
Water For Elephants by Sara Gruen is a another book turned movie. I have seen the movie and really enjoyed it. I am interested to see if the book is better.
A Discovery of Witches (All Souls Trilogy #1) by Deborah Harkness has occupied a spot on my to-be-read list for a long time. I have heard nothing by good things about this book and am so excited to finally get to read it,
