Bought:
-Pink by Lili Wilkinson
     I got this book last week from my library, read it and fell head over heels in love with it so I just had to by my very own copy! (My review)
-Graffiti Moon by Cath Crawley
     During my trip to my Indie bookstore this week, I saw this while I was getting Pink. I've heard so many amazing things about this book. I absolutely adored the characters and how art was a key piece in the story. 
-The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
     I honestly think I'm one of the only people who hasn't read this book! I got it at Half Price for only $5 and it's seriously like new! 
-How to Save a Life by Sara Zarr
     This one is another Half Price buy for less than $5! I seriously don't think anyone read it, it's like pristine! I saw this on a list my library has and am making it a goal to read at least ten book from their list.
-Nightshade (Nightshade 1) by Andrea Cremer (U.K. Edition)
     Okay, so I know I have the hardcover of this book, but for some reason my Half Price has a stack of new U.K. paperbacks, weird! The cover is so pretty and I seriously couldn't walk away from it! I still need to read the last two in the trilogy, but I loved this one!




Library:
-Everneath (Everneath 1) by Brodi Ashton
     I've heard so many great things about this one, can't wait to start it!
-There is No Dog by Meg Rosoff
     In this book God is a 19-year old boy who is considered to be 'lazy and hopeless'. I'm in need of some soul searching and I've heard this book does just that. I hear it's funny too, which is a huge plus!
-Distant Waves by Suzanne Weyn
     This book came out a few years ago and I heard about it on Riley's blog, Truthfully Fictional. I'm a huge fan of Titanic, not only the movie but the actual event in history. This is a story about sisters and their story while aboard the ship. 
-Prized (Birthmarked 2) by Caragh M. O'Brien
     Even though I didn't fall totally in love with the first book, I still am super excited to see what happens next. Book one ended in a cliffhanger and I keep hearing that the sequel totally surpasses the first book, so I'm looking forward to see what happens next.

  10. Hi! Great haul! I've had Graffiti Moon and The Book Thief on my TBR list for almost forever. I hope I can read them soon. There is never enough time and always a new book. Speaking of, I added PINK to my TBR list too. That cover is very interesting.

    Hope you have a great week!
