Friday Finds #2

Standard

Here are titles I have recently discovered and added to my “to-be-read” list! Check out other Friday Finds at Should Be Reading!

1. The Selection by Kiera Cass

The Selection Book Cover

I decided to add this book after seeing it reviewed on so many blogs. People seem to have really mixed feelings about this book. They either love it or hate it and I’m curious to see which side of the fence I will fall on. I’ve heard it described multiple times as a mix between the TV show The Bachelor and The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. To be honest, The Bachelor is one of my guilty pleasures (I know it’s dumb, but I can’t help it!) so I just have to read this book!

2. Etiquette and Espionage by Gail Carriger

Ettiquette and Espionage Book Cover

This book is one I stumbled upon on Goodreads. It was recommended to me because I read the Gallagher Girl series (which I loved). If this book is anything like Ally Carter’s series I know it’s a must read!

3. Love and Leftovers by Sarah Tregay

Love and Leftovers Book Cover

I work at a library and as I was doing some shelving this week I stumbled upon this book. The title and the cover caught my eye so I read the summary. After reading what this book was about I knew I had to read it. Sometimes you just need a good romance and this one sounds great!

Friday Finds and Feature & Follow #1

Here are some books that I recently added to my “to-be-read” list!

1. Prisoner B-3087 by Alan Gratz

Prisoner B-3087 Book Cover

I found this book on the NEW YA display at my local library. I am a fan of all stories related to World War II and/or the Holocaust. When I read the book jacket for this novel I knew it was a must read! It is based on the real story of prisoner B-3087, however, some characters and events were added to the story. I can’t wait to get to this book!

2. Double Digit by Annabel Monaghan

Double Digit Book Cover

Okay, so this book isn’t even out yet, but I was so, so excited when I saw it on Goodreads! I read A Girl Named Digit by Annabel Monaghan last year and I LOVED it. It was one of the books where I actually felt kind of sad when it was over. Well, I didn’t know there was going to be a sequel so when I saw this I was thrilled!

3. The Lions of Little Rock by Kristin Levine

The Lions of Little Rock Book Cover

This book is on the Texas Lone Star list this year. As I was browsing the titles on the list this one really caught my eye. I honestly don’t know much about this book, but I’m still ready to sit down and read this own based on the summary alone.

4. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Anna and the French Kiss Book Cover

Anna and the French Kiss is a book I was finally convinced to add to my TBR list after I saw it on many, many blogs. The title sounds a little cheesy and the cover looks really cheesy so  I have my doubts. However, I have heard nothing bad about this book. Actually, quite the opposite…every one seems to love it and because of the rave reviews I feel that I have to give this book a chance.

5. The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen

The Truth About Forever Book Cover

I am currently reading (actually listening to) my first Sarah Dessen book and I really, really like it. Dessen’s characters are so easy to relate to and they are just fun. Since I am enjoying it so much I looked some of her other titles up on Goodreads and this is one that caught my eye. Hopefully, it will be as good as Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen which I am currently reading.
