Where Did These Come From?!

I think these books just appear out of thin air. Ha, I wish! Venessa and I are winding down on The Emerald Atlas, which is a fun adventure, and so I’ve been prepping for our next read. These are the new ones I’ve gathered as potential options:

The Mouse and the Motorcycle by Beverly Cleary
Little House on the Prairie by Laura Ingalls Wilder
Mossflower by Brian Jacques

And that’s not counting the books I got approved for on NetGalley! (Free ebooks to read! What could be better?!) I’m hoping some of these Venessa will pick up and read on her own as well. We had a parent/teacher conference last week and her teacher thinks she’s reading for chapter books and mommy and daddy agree.

And of course I couldn’t leave myself out:

Anathem by Neal Stephenson
Elizabeth Street by Laurie Fabiano
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

The Night Circus came courtesy of the library. I just hope I can read it in time. It’s due on 11/4 and I know I won’t be able to renew and I still want to read Ashes, which is due on 11/1 and I still need to finish reading At the Mountain of Madness! A reading marathon is in order!

Elizabeth Street was half off so I couldn’t pass it up and since I enjoyed Snow Crash I wanted another Neal Stephenson around. I picked up Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children from a Super Walmart. I was surprised by the collection of books they had. Not too shabby.

Now I don't know where I'm going to put them all though. What I really should be picking up is a new shelf instead of new books! First world problem!

IMPORTANT UPDATE: My sister found The Firelings!
