My Book Store Haul: February 2016 Edition

By Selane @SummerEllenLane
Do you ever get the feeling that you just need....MORE BOOKS? I get that feeling all the time. Never mind that I can't even begin to keep up with the massive pile of "to-be-read" books on my desk. That's irrelevant. I just need all the books, all the time. 

Here are the books I just picked up in February - a combination of purchases made at the Clovis Book Barn (a wonderful second-hand bookstore) and Barnes & Noble.

The Compound 

by S.A. Bodeen 

Eli and his family have lived in the Compound for six years. The world they knew is gone. Eli's father built the Compound to keep them safe. Now, they can't get out. 
He won't let them. 

Sounds claustrophobic, doesn't it? I love post-ap bunker stories. I mean, look at my life. Post-apocalyptic insanity everywhere. I have no shame about it. #Survival

The People of Sparks 

by Jeanne DuPrau

When Lina and Doon lead their people up from the underground city of Ember, they discover a surface world of color and life. The people of a small village called Sparks agree to help the Emberites, but the villagers have never had to share their world before. 

This is the sequel to City of Ember, which is a fabulous read. Excited for this second installment.

The Golden Compass

by Philip Pullman 

"Philip Pullman's award winning The Golden Compass is a masterwork of storytelling and suspense, critically acclaimed and hailed as a modern fantasy classic."

Everybody knows about The Golden Compass by the point, but I couldn't resist purchasing my own paperback copy. I mean, it was only 3.50 at the thrift store - how great is that?

The Infinite Sea 

by Rick Yancey 

The epic, thrilling sequel to The 5th Wave. 

Only the best book I've read in a long time. SO EXCITED to read the sequel. I hope it's great! 


My Book Store Haul: February 2016 Edition
The Dogs of War 

by Lisa Rogak 

A non-fiction look at the inner-workings of operations and training for military dogs trained in bomb detection and tracking. 

This is a fantastic read. Everybody should check it out - canines are definitely the underrated heroes of our country. 


My Book Store Haul: February 2016 Edition
So that's my little haul! What are you reading this month? If you're like me, you might have a relatively wide variety of genres sitting on your shelf. It's good to keep things new and fresh. 

Happy reading!
