No Book Buying Challenge

When I started thinking about this post, none of the books popped up immediately. Work has been so crazy lately focusing on reading at night has been a bit of a chore. I’m lucky if I can read 10 minutes before I’m promptly asleep with my iPad mini or book dropping to the floor. The good thing about the iPad mini…I don’t lose my place or bend the pages when that happens.

In the end, I had to go over to GoodReads and look at my list of books. Then I got really giddy because there are at least 4 books I loved that were on my shelf at the start of the year. And like a true bookworm, I can’t just share one!

The Quick Review


From my review: Ultimately the Titanic survival stories focused on class and the main character, Tess, is situated right at the crossroads. Throughout the novel, the reader sees her struggle with the having the connections to accomplish her dream and the desire to stay true to herself.

    Not read any of those books. 🙂 I know I need to spends some time on my own books, so far this year I have only read two books that are considered mine. That is horrible..lol.

    • I’m starting to go back and forth again between a book I already and own and ARCs I’ve received. So far it is working well.

    I don’t know why I couldn’t get through the first pages of Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children book I. I’ll try it again. Thanks for the review 🙂

    • I struggled a bit with the first one, Daniela, because it was a bit too creepy. Once I got past that part, I really enjoyed it. Book 2 is not creepy, just tense all the way through!

    Ooh I really want to read Miss Peregrine’s! It sounds like such a creepy read – I have heard similar things about book 2 being not as creepy and all, which is sad 🙁 And Mr. Penumbra! I’ve been eying that for more than 2 years now, but I still haven’t bought myself a copy. I MUST FIX THIS *nods*

    Great post!
