I recently went thrift shopping for the first time with my best friend. I never knew how great the deals were on books. We went to Goodwill and then The World of Thrift, it was great. I didn’t spend more than a total of $9 on these books which is a steal. Full reviews coming soon.
The books I purchased were:
Bestselling author Sherman Alexie tells the story of Junior, a budding cartoonist growing up on the Spokane Indian Reservation. Determined to take his future into his own hands, Junior leaves his troubled school on the rez to attend an all-white farm town high school where the only other Indian is the school mascot.
I’ve been hearing great things about this book for years now. I never read it back in my middle grade days so why not now?
Mindy Kaling has lived many lives: the obedient child of immigrant professionals, a timid chubster afraid of her own bike, a Ben Affleck–impersonating Off-Broadway performer and playwright, and, finally, a comedy writer and actress prone to starting fights with her friends and coworkers with the sentence “Can I just say one last thing about this, and then I swear I’ll shut up about it?”
I have been watching a ton of The Office lately so when I saw this, I just couldn’t resist.
A boy with extraordinary powers. An army of deadly monsters. An epic battle for the future of peculiardom.
The adventure that began with Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children and continued in Hollow City comes to a thrilling conclusion with Library of Souls.
I read books one and two a few years ago and I’m excited to continue this adventure. My Review of Hollow City
A funny, often poignant tale of boy meets girl with a twist: what if one of them couldn’t stop slipping in and out of time? Highly original and imaginative, this debut novel raises questions about life, love, and the effects of time on relationships.
I have committed a terrible bibliographic sin. I watched the movie long before getting the book. For this, I must right my wrong. Even if I have to go through 500 pages to do it.
