Shelves final

I have too many books I haven’t read. So this is the perfect meme for me.

One of my goals this year is to read the books I have instead of buying new books. That lasted about a week.

I made the mistake of going to the annual used book sale of the public library. My TBR shelf has now grown to include an entire bookcase…in the hall because I ran out of room in the living room. Don’t get me started on my kindle.

Today’s book I hope to read this year.

The Final Empire (Mistborn, #1)

Title: Mistborn

Author: Brandon Sanderson

Published: 2006

Pages: 657

Synopsis: from Goodreads

In a world where ash falls from the sky, and mist dominates the night, an evil cloaks the land and stifles all life. The future of the empire rests on the shoulders of a troublemaker and his young apprentice. Together, can they fill the world with color once more?

 

How I got the book: I actually bought this paperback new. Shortly after that my daughter stole it and placed it on her shelf. When I rescued it for her I noticed she stamped her name inside the front cover, marking it as hers. 😉 I guess she wants to read it too.

When I got this book: I think I bought it a year, maybe two, ago. It’s been a awhile.

Why do I want to read this book:  I’ve been told by several people that this is one of the best books…ever. It’s also on my list of top 100 fantasy/sci-fi books to read. I check them off as I go.

Shelf Control 1

Today is surgery day. I’m both happy and nervous. Just a little outpatient on my wrist. I hope to be in tip top condition by August. I thought it would be fun to join in on Shelf Control.

My pick of the week is:

Save the Date

Title: Save the Date

Author: Mary Kay Andrews

Published: 2014

Pages: 448

Synopsis: from Goodreads

A Savannah florist is about to score the wedding of a lifetime—one that will solidify her career as the go-to-girl for society nuptials. Ironically, Cara Kryzik doesn’t believe in love, even though she creates beautiful flower arrangements to celebrate them. But when the bride goes missing and the wedding is in jeopardy, Cara must find the bride and figure out what she believes in. Maybe love really does exist outside of fairy tales after all.

How I got the book: I found the paperback at a bookstore on clearence. It’s a beautiful cover. I saw the author name and the cover and just bought it. I haven’t even read the blurb on the back.

When I bought the book: Sometime in the last year.

Why do I want to read it? I love Mary Kay Andrews. I’ve read 4,5, maybe 6 of her books. I love them. She writes smart, funny characters. There’s actually two of her books on my TBR shelf I need to read. I don’t know why I haven’t read them yet. I think this is a stand alone. I hope so. I hate reading out-of-order.
