Shopping My Shelves

Some of my book-blogging friends have been discussing going on a book-buying ban. Well, I'm all for taking the frugal route (borrowing from the library or buying books for less on my Kindle), so I thought I'd join in and "shop my shelves"! Most of these books I just haven't felt like reading (they're mostly "grown-up books"), but let's take a poll: Which should I read next? (Pardon the blurry pics.)

Nothing is really jumping out at me. Any recommendations within that list? If not, back to the library! Anna Reads young adult book blog

  1. Wintergirls is fantastic. I've heard really good things about The Help, but haven't read it myself.

    Understand on the adult book front. I have a lot of those, and many are even from authors I know I love, but they take me so much longer to read so they often get put off....

  2. I read Citizen Girl awhile back and didn't really like it. I've heard good things about The Glass Castle and The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency though.

  3. I loved The Help, and the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency is a lovely light read.

  4. I'd read The Help first. Second choice would be Glass Castle. Happy Reading!

  5. Wintergirls! I love Laurie Halse Anderson. I've read 2 of her books & found them both compelling.

  6. I have read The Help and The Glass Castle. Both were fantastic, but you really have to be in the mood for The Glass Castle - it's very emotional. I also have Wintergirls and haven't read it yet. If I had to choose, I would vote Wintergirls :)

  7. I think you should read Wintergirls, mostly because I'm interested in reading it and would like to hear your thoughts.

  8. i loved Wintergirls - but you have to be in the right mood for it - to let the lyrical writing soak in and be ready to be absorbed ino=to the story.

  10. I'm going for the classic - Persuasion! I'm not a big fan of classics, but I loved Persuasion. It's slow at first, but it gets interesting once Anne Elliot shows up. :D
