Bought in-store at Black Bond Books
The Thin Executioner by Darren Shan
The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey by Trenton Lee Stewart
The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Prisoner's Dilemma by Trenton Lee Stewart
I kind of fell in love with the cover of The Thin Executioner when I saw it. The Goodreads image doesn't do it justice. Besides, the stock of the cover jacket feels amazing.
I got The Mysterious Benedict Society, the paperback, from a book swap a few years back, and loved it. I borrowed the others and had a similar reaction, and recently, Black Bond Books has crazy good prices for books . . .
If you live near the area, I swear, Black Bond Books is the best.
Bought from library
Once Dead, Twice Shy by Kim Harrison
The Power of Six by Pittacus Lore
Possessions by Nancy Holder
The Evil Within by Nancy Holder
Long story short, the library probably started clearing off its shelves again, so I picked up a couple of books for a dollar. Total. Which was super neat especially since The Power of Six was a hardcover. As for Kim Harrison's Once Dead, Twice Shy, I accidentally totally read the series all out of order, so I'm starting again, fresh. The Betrayal of Natalie Hargrove I can easily say was the most impactful of Lauren Kate's books mostly because of how much it messed my mind up. In a good way. As for the Possessions series by Nancy Holder, I've read the first book and it was okay, but I wanted to give the series another shot. The copy of Possessions I got was actually not the one pictured above, but it's so tiny I didn't want to magnify it and make it a mess of pixels. It's not as nice and matchy as the cover I inserted in its place, but you can see it here.
