First are the books I've purchased. I'm trying not to spend much because I really don't NEED to...I'm trying to save money for summer activities. But, of course, there are SOME necessities!
1.) The Elite by Kiera Cass - yes, this was a necessity!
2.) If I Should Die by Amy Plum - DEFINITELY a necessity! This is the conclusion of the series, and I need my Vincent fix!3.) Halflings by Heather Burch - I was sent the second book for review awhile back, so I need the first one - plus it was only $3!
Next, my library books...yeah, I got a little carried away. I seriously only meant to go in to pick up my ordered copy of Sever...but I couldn't resist looking. And we all know what looking leads to...(and that is Kitty Katniss sniffing around...she insisted on making an appearance!)
1.) The Running Dream by Wendelin Van Draanen - this is on many awards lists, so I need to check it out!
2.) Confessions of a Murder Suspect by James Patterson - I've been drooling over this for awhile!
3.) Sever by Lauren DeStefano - my main reason for going into the library in the first place! I will be sad for this series to end!
4.) Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake - also on awards lists
5.) The Absolute Value of Mike by Kathryn Erskine - Sequoyah master list
6.) Michael Vey: The Prisoner of Cell 25 by Richard Paul Evans - one of my jr high boys did a book talk on this and he convinced me to read it!
7.) Mind Games by Kiersten White - been on my TBR for awhile
8.) Mystic City by Theo Lawrence - supposed to be like The Hunger Games and Matched? yes, please!
9.) Ashfall by Mike Mullin
10.) Stick by Andrew Smith
