This is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren.

So I stole, borrowed my Mom's library card and got these two pretties:


Bought from Amazon:


From the lovely Becky at The Bookette:


1. Fallen by Lauren Kate: So I'm not ashamed to say that most of the reason I wanted to read this is because of the cover. Definitely one of the coolest covers I've ever seen and hopefully this will break the reading slump I've been having with paranormal romances.

2. Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl: Again, another one of those crazy bestselling hyped books. I feel left out not having read it yet, haha. Again, hoping to break the paranormal romance slump.

3. Sweethearts by Sara Zarr: I love this cover. So, so cute. And I'm proud of myself because this definitely falls under the reading more contemporary resolution.

4. The Crowfield Curse by Pat Walsh: From the book description, this sounds like exactly the sort of middle grade novel I'd love. Also, the great review from The Bookette convinced me of it's amazing-ness so I can't wait to read it!

GREAT books! I loved Fallen and I'm excited to read BC, which I'm going to give myself for birthday, hehe. Sweethearts is on my wishlist. The other one I have never heard of. Hope you like them all!

Great books! I hadn't heard of 'The Crowfield Curse' before and this sounds like my kind of book. I've just added it to my to-read list. Thanks for sharing!

Very nice selection. Fallen and BC are both great books. I love the look of the other two as well!

Awesome books! Maybe you should get yourself a library card? I know my mom would completely freak if she saw how many books I have on hold with my library card, lol. Own library card = free reign = awesomeness. It's really up to you though.
I'll be looking forward to see what you think about Fallen, and I hope you love BC as much as I did. Happy reading! :D

Erica said...

Fallen and Beautiful Creatures both look awesome! I have Fallen, but haven't read it yet.

These look good! I have had my eye on this Sara Zarr novel for a while, and I've been reading great reviews of Beautiful Creatures and Fallen.

I haven't finished BC yet (I keep having to put it down and it's driving me nuts!) but lemme tell you, the hype that it's been getting? It's all TRUE. It is just as good as people say... and yay for Fallen! Lol, for the pretty cover? I read the ARC of it so no hauntingly blue cover for me! Aww, Sweethearts. That cover is pretty cute. I've only read one book by her but I remember liking it a lot :)

Lea said...

Awesome books! I still need to read my copies of BC & Fallen...I love that cover for Sweathearts...so cute!

The Crowfield Curse does sound awesome,

Happy reading! :)
