Library Book Haul (#8)

Hey everyone! The Top Ten Tuesday topic didn’t spur any ideas so I decided to do a library book haul instead. I haven’t done a library book haul in a long time so this should be fun! This haul consists of two young adult books and three tween books.

*All These Book Covers Are Linked To Goodreads*

1. Highly Illogical Behavior by John Corey Whaley

Highly Illogical Behavior

This book has been floating around for a bit. I’m finally going to read it and see if I enjoy it. It’s a book about a boy who is agoraphobic. He hasn’t left his house in three years. A girl named Lisa wants to try to change that. It reminds me of Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon a bit. I’ll definitely do a review.


2. Chasing Secrets by Gennifer Choldenko

Chasing Secrets

A tween book set in 1900’s San Francisco. It revolves around a girl named Lizzie and her adventures. I have enjoyed historic fiction before so I wanted to give this a shot. It’s a tween book so no review.


3.  The Thing About Jellyfish by Ali Benjamin

The Thing About Jellyfish

A tween book about a girl named Suzie. After her friend dies in a drowning accident, Suzie is sure it was caused by a jellyfish sting. She goes to extreme lengths to prove her theory. There will be no review.


4. Poached by Stuart Gibbs

Poached (FunJungle #2)

A tween book about a boy named Teddy who’s trying to solve the mystery of the Koala captors. No review will be done.


5. To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before (Book #1) by Jenny Han

To All the Boys I've Loved Before (To All the Boys I've Loved Before, #1)

A young adult book about a girl named Lara. Instead of confessing her feelings to her crushes, she writes them letters. Her secret letters to her crushes are sealed as if to be sent off. When the box of letters is somehow mailed, she’s confronted by ex-crushes. A review will be done.


That’s a wrap! Have you read any of these books? Let me know your thoughts!

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more library book hauls!

Hey everyone!! It’s Thursday and that means it’s time for another Book Traveling Thursday. This weekly meme is hosted by Càtia @ The Girl Who Read Too Much and Danielle @ Danielle’s Book Blog. Go check them out for fantastic bookish posts! To find out more meme information, future themes and more, head to the Goodreads group here. This week’s theme is:

It’s back to school time! Choose a book set on high school or college.

Of course, all of the topics for memes lately are school related. Since I’m going into High School, this will be perfect. This week, I have decided to do Will Grayson, Will Grayson  by John Green and David Levithan. I haven’t read this book yet but it’s on my book shelf.


Original Cover/Cover From My Country:

Will Grayson, Will Grayson


Favorite Cover(s):

Will & Will: Um nome, um destinoPortuguese

Den Andre Will GraysonSwedish

Will et WillFrench

23350212Portuguese

My favorite out of these is the first Portuguese cover. It’s simple yet it still stands out to me.


Least Favorite(s):

Will ti presento WillItalian

This was the only one I found that I really didn’t like. It has random people and the background isn’t my favorite.


That’s a wrap! This book has a lot of covers that have different languages but the same graphic.  What are your favorite and least favorite covers?

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for next week’s Book Traveling Thursday!

Book Traveling Thursday (#25)

Hey everyone! It’s Thursday and that means tomorrow’s Friday! I hope everyone has had a great week and can have a relaxing and enjoyable rest of their week. It also means it’s time for another Book Traveling Thursday! This meme is hosted by the amazing Cátia @ The Girl Who Read Too Much and  wonderful Danielle @ Danielle’s Book Blog. Go check out their outstanding blogs if you haven’t already! To find more information, future themes and more, go to the meme’s Goodreads group here. This week’s theme (the first of July!) is:

Book with an Eye Candy Cover. Choose a book that you read/bought because of the cover.

I never get a book only because of the cover. The cover definitely does influence me though. I’ve already done a lot of books that would’ve been perfect for this theme. I have decided to do Insurgent by Veronica Roth. It definitely has an eye-catching cover.


Original Cover/Cover From My Country (US):

Insurgent (Divergent, #2)


Favorite Cover(s):

Tödliche Wahrheit (Die Bestimmung, #2)German

All that changed was the colors but I still enjoy it

Divergente (Divergente, #2)French

This is an interesting split cover!

Pobunjeni (Divergent, #2)Serbian

My favorite is the Serbian cover because it has a gloomy and mysterious feel about it.


Least Favorite Cover(s):

Divergente (Divergente, #2)French

المتمردة إنسورجنتArabic

Rezistencia (Divergencia, #2)Slovak

My least favorite out of these is probably the French one. They just put a random person on the cover!


That’s a wrap! Most of these covers aren’t really that good or bad. The majority of the covers looked like the original. What are your favorite and least favorite covers? Let me know! I apologize for the small cover selection this week.

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for next week’s Book Traveling Thursday!
