Happy weekend everyone! I hope your weekend is starting off better than mine. I’m still stuck with mounds of snow and awful freezing rain. But on to the good stuff. I added a few new books to my shelves this week and here they are.

Purchased

The Heist by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg

Hit List by Laurel K. Hamilton

Paper Towns by John Green

Under the Dome, Part 1 by Stephen King

Under the Dome, Part 2 by Stephen King

Library

Bewitched, Bothered and Biscotti by Bailey Cates

I purchased Paper Town on a whim because I had just heard the news that it will be made into a film. This will be my first John Green book, and I’m anxious to see what it’s all about. I also made the decision to purchase Under the Dome, in anticipation to season 2 of the TV show this summer. Based on the same concept, I’ve heard the book and the TV show are a little bit different from one another so I’m really looking forward to making comparisons.

What did you add to your shelves this week?

Stéphanie is an book nerd and Optometrist living in a small community in Northern Ontario and even if she liked living in Montreal for 5 years, she believes the small town life is more her style. Ever since she was little she loved books and stories. It's no surprise that today, you'll always find her with a book within arm's reach.

      I’ve fallen a bit behind on the series and I found this one on sale. Maybe it’s a hint that I should catch up on the series? lol

    • Stéphanie

      Paper Towns will be my first John Green book so I’m going in with no expectations

    • Stéphanie

      Ok. I’m glad I’m not the only one that hasn’t read a John Green. I thought I might give it a try since so many people rave about his books.

    Great haul of books! Love Paper Towns, one of my favorite John Green books and Under the Dome which I read long before the television show, looks much more manageable in two books rather than the huge hardcover I read! Enjoy your new books and happy reading 🙂

      I tried reading it in Hardcover from the library. Didn’t work. I was just so heavy! I like reading from paperback better anyways and I’ve read about a quarter of part 1 already so I think it is more manageable. And this way, the book actually fits in my purse! lol

    • Stéphanie

      I’m really looking forward to comparing. Already, about a quarter into part 1, everything feel different.

    I’ve been wanting to read Under the Dome but the length has me thinking twice about it.
    Hope you enjoy your books.

    • Stéphanie

      I took the Hardcover out from the library one time, but I was daunted by it’s size. Two paperbacks are more manageable. I’m about a quarter through part 1.

  3. Sarah @ Flood of Books, etc.

    You can’t go wrong with John Green and Paper Towns was my first read by him too! I think The Fault in Our Stars is my favorite one of his. Bewitched, Bothered, and Biscotti looks really cute; I hadn’t heard of that series before. Happy Reading!
