February Book Haul

febbooks

Hello everyone! After having a busy weekend, I went shopping at a few restore shops and a used bookstore. These places are great for discounted books; some might be worn, but there are quite a few in great condition. My boyfriend challenged me to find some novels that were outside the young adult genre, and I believe I succeeded. Since I’ve been falling behind on my to-be-read lists (I’ve had so many things to do and work’s been changing my schedule like crazy), I decided to share my haul with you guys! Hopefully I’ll be able to read these soon.

The Choice by Nicholas Sparks

I figured why not, I’ll read another Nicholas Sparks book. It’s right after Valentine’s Day, and while I might not be the most romantic person when it comes to my own relationships, I do enjoy reading/watching them. This particular book is about a guy who has everything a man could want except for a serious relationship. A new neighbor moves in and changes his mind. It seems like it’ll be a fun read!

Rock Bottom by Erin Brockovich (with CJ Lyons)

As someone who is passionate about the environment, I’ve heard about activist Erin Brockovich and think she’s a badass. She successfully helped build a case against Pacific Gas & Electric when they contaminated the local drinking water supply. This novel adds some of her real life experiences into a suspenseful fictional story, so I’m really excited to read this.

A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini

I absolutely loved “The Kite Runner” and “And The Mountains Echoed” from this author, so this one seemed like it would be a nice add to my collection. I feel like his books normally have meaningful messages to them.

A Dog’s Purpose by W. Bruce Cameron

How could I resist a book about dogs? I thought the movie was alright, so I can’t wait to read the book.

Find Her by Lisa Gardner

I don’t know why but this book caught my eye in the store. After reading the summary, I knew I had to read it. It’s about a woman who was kidnapped when she was in college and seemed to be trying to solve the case/get revenge herself. She goes missing, however, and it’s up to the detective working a related case to find her. Even the bookstore owner said that Lisa Gardner is a great writer, so this should be a good read.
