Stacking the Shelves
- The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom: My dad recommended this book to me and since I'm kind of going through a memoir phase right now, I thought that it would be a great read. Corrie Ten Boom is such a brave person and I can't wait to read about her life.
- Peter and the Starcatchers by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson: Fairytale retellings + Peter Pan = awesome. 'Nuff said.
- The Impossible Knife of Memory by Laurie Halse Anderson: The cover is gorgeous and I've heard that it's a good book, so I decided to give it a go.
- Cress by Marissa Meyer: I want to read this book so badly! I read Scarlet and it was so suspenseful! Now I have to find out what happens to Scarlet and Wolf and Thorne and Cinder and Iko and Kai and Queen Levana and Cress and everybody else!
- Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand: I'm reading this book for my summer reading. My dad recommended this book to me, especially because it's about a long distance runner and long distance running is one of my passions.
