I hope that everyone is having a great weekend! I have done nothing that I planned on doing so far this weekend, oops! I did go shopping for Easter goodies for the niece and nephew and then ended the day with another trip to a different Goodwill. I am totally in a reading slump as you have probably read in the last couple posts I have done, but I am in no way in a not buying books slump..hah. I think I rather be going through that! The trip only ended up being $12 though, so that’s awesome! Onto the books…
Ender’s Shadow by Orson Scott Card
Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card
Ender in Exile by Orson Scott Card
I thought it was totally awesome that I found THREE Ender books! I read Ender’s Game, which I got from the library, but I decided to buy the book so I could own it. I was also so happy that I found some others! I am excited about Ender’s Shadow, because it’s about Bean!
For One More Day by Mitch Albom
The Impressionist by Hari Kunzru
Allies & Assassins by Justin Somper
Reality Check by Peter Abrahams
A Fraction of the Whole by Steve Toltz
The Bourne Deception by Robert Ludlums
I am pretty excited that I found For One More Day. I love that book so much and I love Mitch Albom. The boyfriend chose The Bourne Deception, but I am sure it’ll sit on the bookcase and never be read by him; just like the others he chose before, lol. My younger sister chose Reality Check, but I think I might read it also. Allies & Assassins I seen last month or so when I went there and was on the fence about getting it, so I didn’t get it. I seen it again this time, so I decided to just get it. All the books together 🙂
Tomorrow I have to get some work done. I brought home work from my job to do over the weekend, so I have to get that done tomorrow. I also did not accomplish any Dorothy read time in today, so I have to try to tonight and also tomorrow. I am really trying to make it a point to finish it before April 1st! Blehhhh. I love the book, but I am in a slight reading slump…so there’s that. Nothing at all against the book. Tomorrow will be busy. I also have another book club chat about The Glass Arrow tomorrow, so I have to get my work done, so I can join that.
Throne of Glass came in the mail yesterday and I am excited about it! It’s the book chosen for the April read in the book club, so that’s awesome. I love this version of the cover. And that’s me trying to read Dorothy Must Die last night, but the reading slump totally took over, blehhhhh. I also look insanely tired, because for some reason the last month or so I haven’t been able to get to sleep early enough during the week. Oh well!
Just in case you missed them, here are a few of the last posts that I did and sorry for the repeat in linking from other posts, but I haven’t done that many posts recently. Hopefully that changes SOON!
- Friday Finds – the books I added to my TBR list this week.
- Book Haul – the Goodwill book haul from last week.
- 2015 Reading Challenge – a book that made me cry.
Okay..that’s all for now. I am off to MAYBE read or catch up on Broadchurch with the boyfriend. I love David Tennant so much and Broadchurch is amazing! We are two episodes behind on the new season. 🙂 BYE!

I loved Ender’s Game! I have the other books in the series, just have yet to get to them…as usual! I got distracted writing my post and then my computer restarted…so hopefully sometime tonight I will get it done! I keep seeing the Throne of Glass books everywhere…people really love them. Guess that is another book for me to look into!
I know what you mean about the reading slump. I love Fairest but am just stuck. Netflix surely doesn’t help either…
I have way too many books I have yet to get to. It’s never-ending! I’m hoping my book jars help with this, haha. Ahh that sucks about your computer! I religiously save draft after typing something on my posts lol. I noticed a lot of people really love Throne of Glass too, so I added it to my TBR list. I’m glad it was chosen for the book club. Read slumps are so lame, especially when you really do like the books. Yeah, for sure, Netflix does not help! I’ve been distracted with all my TV shows starting up again.
I just got Throne of Glass in the mail earlier this week for book club too! I’m looking forward to our final chat about The Glass Arrow which is now in less than 10 minutes lol. I haven’t read Ender’s Game yet but my hubby owns it and I have it on my TBR so I hope to get to it sometime soon. There is just so much to read and so little time!
The chat was great as always! 🙂 Hopefully you get to Ender’s Game soon. It was a really great read. I totally agree with you with there being so much to read and so little time.
Love your haul! You found some really great books. 🙂
I’ve been meaning to read “For One More Day” for quite some time. It’s one of the books on my TBR list that seems to never end! lol. 😛
Also, I know the “reading slump” feeling–it’s the worst. I’ve been using an app called ReadMore and it’s been helping me stay on track with my reading goals. It’s about $3, but it’s great! Check it out (if you haven’t heard of it)! 🙂
Thank you 🙂
My list never ends either, haha. For One More Day is so good! Hopefully you get to read it soon.
Thanks for letting me know about the app! I am definitely going to check it out.
