While I have a bookshelf covered in books yet to be read, I still convinced myself that a trip to the local library was essential to finding my next book to read. I went there with three particular books in mind, Cinder, City of Bones and Maze Runner.
I have been in the mood for a fairy tale book and I have been eyeing Cinder for a while so hopefully it will live up to my expectations. I also picked up Scarlet in case I wanted to start the second book in the Lunar Chronicles series once I finish Cinder.
City of Bones has also been on my to-read list for a while now and since the movie is being released this month I thought, "What the heck. It is either now or never."
I intended to get Maze Runner for my boyfriend since he is looking for something new that is comparable to Divergent and the Hunger Games. I was hoping that I could get him to scope it out for me to see if it is worth all the hype it has been receiving. Since the library didn't have any copies, I picked up the Witch and Wizard by James Patterson, which is yet another series that I have heard about but haven't had a chance to read yet. My boyfriend is a fan of James Patterson's Alex Cross series so maybe he can get into this series as well.
I tried not to go too crazy on freebies at Amazon and Barnes & Noble this week, but it is almost impossible to talk myself out of downloading books when I know I am not spending any money.
What books did you pick up this week?
