 This week I felt the need to go to the library, and it is a good thing I did. My library has a used book store filled with lots of good books and they were having a book sale. So, in addition to the 6 library books I checked out, I also bought 13 books from the bookstore. I paid a grand total of $3.65 for 13 books. Pretty sure that is some kind of record for me!

 

My Library Books:

 

The One by: Kiera Cass - Third book in the Selection Series! ( I finished this one and it is the best book in the series so far! Looking forward to the next one!)

 

The Assassins Blade by: Sarah J. Maas -Selection of novellas from the Throne of Glass Series. (I finished this one last night, and adored it! Can't wait for Queen of Shadows!!)

 

Eon by: Alison Goodman - First book in the series.  (Currently reading, really good so far!)

 

The Kingdom of Little Wounds by: Susann Cokal - Not sure if this is a standalone or if it is the first in a series.

 

Ruby Red by: Kerstin Gier - The First book in a time travel trilogy.

 

Cruel Beauty by: Rosamund Hodge - A Beauty and the Beast Retelling.

 

 

Books I Purchased from my Library

 

(NF) Age of Kings by: Charles Blitzer -This is a history book. (I don't really know anything about it other than that)

 

(NF) My War by: Tracy Sugarman- This is a book that is a non fiction account of a husband and wife during WWII.

 

(NF) I Remember Laura by: Stephan W Hines -This is a biographical account of Laura Ingalls Wilder. I believe it is focused more on her adult life.

(F) Brothers in Valor by: Micheal O. Tunnell - This about three German boys during WWII

 

(NF) Life in a Medieval Castle by: Joseph and Frances Gies -Since I have been to a medieval castle I thought this would be an interesting read.

(NF) The Discovery of the Titanic by: Dr. Robert D. Ballard

 

(F) The Knife of Never Letting Go by: Patrick Ness -Heard really good things about this book.

 

(NF) The Devil in the White City by: Erik Larson -This sounds really interesting, it involves a World Fair and a Serial Killer

 

(F) War Without Friends by: Evert Hartman - A WWII book about some kids in occupied Holland.

 

I suppose I should feel guilty for all of the books that I bought, but with how much I paid for them I feel no guilt! I hope you enjoyed reading this!

 

Yours Truly, signing off!
