Check this book out, it sounds really good!
I found these books at the Dollar Tree in Marshall, Michigan. Each book is very different from the other. I kind of selected a variety of books, and I’m happy with what I picked out.
So what are you reading ? What is on your TBR list?
Let me know in the comments.
I was at Michael’s and I saw this book, and I couldn’t resist getting it. Especially, after I flipped through it, and seen what was inside the book. I paid $13.99 compared to $36.53 on Amazon. One of the activities in the book is to write about your life as if your life is the most important now. So pick a time in your life where your life was most important. I thought it was a really cool thing to do. Check it out !
So far I have done a word search, and connect the dots in this book, and I have loved every minute of it. This book is so much fun, and I have barely done anything in it. So I hope that others will buy this too. I bought this at Five Below and it was only $5 compared to the Amazon price which is $7.99.
This book was also at Five Below for $5 compared to $12.85 on Amazon. I was pretty excited about this book because I have never seen anything like it. It is very creative book and I love it so far. It was a steal!
I got 2 books from the Dollar General and each were $3 a piece. They are both romance but different types of romance.
Insert Groom Here by K.M. Jackson and The Highlanders Touch by Karen Marie Moning.
Our Kind Of Cruelty by Araminta Hall
“This is simply one of the nastiest and most disturbing thrillers I’ve read in years. I loved it, right down to the utterly chilling final line.” —Gillian Flynn
This book is the only book I got from the dollar tree but boy does it sound good. I’m already 4 pgs. into the story and it’s already interesting.
This is a love story. Mike’s love story.
Mike Hayes fought his way out of a brutal childhood and into a quiet, if lonely, life before he met Verity Metcalf. V taught him about love, and in return, Mike has dedicated his life to making her happy. He’s found the perfect home, the perfect job; he’s sculpted himself into the physical ideal V has always wanted. He knows they’ll be blissfully happy together.
It doesn’t matter that she hasn’t been returning his e-mails or phone calls.
It doesn’t matter that she says she’s marrying Angus.
It’s all just part of the secret game they used to play. If Mike watches V closely, he’ll see the signs. If he keeps track of her every move, he’ll know just when to come to her rescue . . .
So I went to the Goodwill in my town and found 2 books that sounded good to me. I also got this cool pillow from my aunt and thought that it would look good in the picture.
Now I’ve been wanting to read The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan for quite some time now. The other book is called Blood Fever by Veronica Wolff.
The Forest of Hands and Teeth’s blurb:
In Mary’s world there are simple truths. The Sisterhood always knows best. The Guardians will protect and serve. The Unconsecrated will never relent. And you must always mind the fence that surrounds the village; the fence that protects the village from the Forest of Hands and Teeth. But, slowly, Mary’s truths are failing her. She’s learning things she never wanted to know about the Sisterhood and its secrets, and the Guardians and their power, and about the Unconsecrated and their relentlessness. When the fence is breached and her world is thrown into chaos, she must choose between her village and her future—between the one she loves and the one who loves her. And she must face the truth about the Forest of Hands and Teeth. Could there be life outside a world surrounded by so much death?
Blood Fever’s Blurb:
It’s the start of the fall semester, and a new crop of Acari and Trainees has descended on the Isle of Night. Watcher training has intensified, and Drew has a new roommate named Mei-Ling. But Mei-Ling harbors a dangerous secret that drove the vampires to abduct her against her will. Drew knows she shouldn’t get involved, but she can’t seem to leave her roommate to fend for herself.
Luckily, Drew has other things on her mind—like vampire Carden. A blood bond to a brawny, eighteenth-century Scottish bad boy tends to preoccupy a girl. And though she’s still figuring out what this bond means, one thing has become clear: She craves him in a major way.
But then bodies start turning up on the island. All the evidence points to the existence of a rogue vampire, and the sinister vampire Alcántara is gunning for Carden, even though Drew has proof that Carden had nothing to do with the murders. Now she has to find the true killer—without endangering Carden, Mei-Ling, or herself…
APPARENTLY, Blood Fever is book 3, so I’ll have to find the first two books before I read it. Oh well. It was a good book haul. I hope you enjoyed my post and have a good afternoon!

She didn’t see Wolf Astor coming.
Obscenely wealthy, socially connected, and heart-stoppingly gorgeous, he’s everything she ever dreamed of in a man.He’s also a total prick.
But at a place like Campbell College, there’s no escape. Not from Wolf, and not from the secrets hidden behind the graceful facades of the campus.

Pulling my two heavy textbooks for this class out of the stack too, I arrange everything nicely. Just as I am getting my brand new pencils ready, I am startled by a loud bang. My desk mate drops his books on the countertop and sits down, looking at me askance.
I startle to realize that it’s the blond Greek god I ran from only yesterday. Tall and broad-shouldered, he wears his black denim and dark blue tee shirt incredibly well. He knows it too, judging by his posture. He perches on his stool and crosses his arms, expectant. Perfectly unkempt sandy blond hair, dark brows spread wide over the darkest blue eyes I’ve ever seen, a patrician nose, two incredible cheekbones, and the most expressive lips…
This guy is fucking hot, excuse my French.
Which are currently smirking at me. I knew hot guys back home in Prineville. Mostly I avoided them, truth be told. But this guy is on another level. He is so dazzling that he could work in television… and bad tv just so happens to be my weakness.
Being around this guy is enough to make me rethink the bright yellow tee shirt dress I am wearing. I want more than anything to tug the hem down and smooth my hands over my black tights, but I don’t.
Instead I blush, fumbling to introduce myself. Sticking my hand straight out and tossing my messy blonde hair back, I try for an authoritative voice. “I’m Emily Danes.”
At the front of the classroom, the professor clears his throat, ready to start talking. My eyes dart to him, but then he reaches for his bunch of tissues again. Glancing back to my partner, I see him eye me up and down in a totally unsubtle way.
At last, he leans forward and shakes my hand. His skin against mine is hot. I bite my lip, refusing to let a little thing like instant animal attraction do me in.
“I’m Wolf,” he says, his voice low and gravelly. He looks me over once more. Then he arches a brow, his smirk deepening. “Did you find all of your panties last night?”
My cheeks instantly go the exact color of a ripe tomato. I lick my lips and frown. What am I supposed to say to that?

Alright, so I was a bit naughty and got some books when I was supposed to be looking for clothes for work. I couldn’t help myself though, because these two books just stood out to me.
The first one I got from The Dollar Tree for only a dollar.
Raw, animal magnetism…
…is a big red flag to prim and proper office manager Jane Morgan. After a rough childhood with a mother who liked her men in prison-jumpsuit orange, Jane changed her name, her look and her taste for bad boys. So why is she lusting for William Chase with his tattoo-covered biceps and steel-toed boots? The man blows things up for a living!
She gives herself one explosive, fantasy-filled night with Chase.
The next day it’s back to plain Jane and safe men.
But when her beloved brother becomes a murder suspect, it’s Chase who comes to her rescue. And Jane discovers that a man who’s been around the block knows a thing or two about uncovering the truth….
So these two books couldn’t be more different from each other than pie and beer. Gross combination that I just came up with in my head, I know, but I just had to get these two books. I happened to get them in this order too. I hope you enjoy my little tid bit of sharing this with you. Have a good night!
I’m not normally a huge reader of fantasy but so far this year I’ve dug into Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi and now Girls of Paper and Fire by Nastasha Ngan – both of which I have loved! GOPAF was our Book Club pick for April and I truly adored it. I was unsure how I’d feel but […]Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan — The Little Contemporary Corner
She reviewed this book really well and it makes me want to read the book right away. Gives a very detailed review which is really nice. Go check it out!
