Weekend Reads #57: Book Haul #27

Weekend Reads is a weekly post in which I discuss a variety of topics and mention the books I plan to read on the weekend. However, for this post I will do a book haul instead of a discussion.

Here are the books I recently acquired:

Library books


Cress by Marissa Meyer

—I had to get this to continue with the Lunar Chronicles. Though I didn’t enjoy Scarlet, I am curious to see how things will work out.

Lucy by Randy Cecil

The Sound of All Things by Myron Uhlberg, illus. by Ted Papoulas

—These two are illustrated children’s books that I picked up because I like the covers.



Missy Piggle-Wiggle and the Whatever Cure by Ann M. Martin and Annie Parnell, illus. by Ben Hatke

—Look at that upside-down house! This looks like a fun, middle-grade novel.

The Ones by Daniel Sweren-Becker

—A young-adult, dystopian novel that features genetic engineering. I wonder if I’ll like it.

Books bought


Riverkeep by Martin Stewart

—I had to get this because I love the cover. It’s young-adult fantasy.

Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur, Vol. 1: BFF by Amy Reeder and Brandon Montclare, illus. by Natacha Bustos

—A crazy comic book about a girl who befriends a dinosaur. I had to get it because the protagonist is Black. I hardly ever see that!

Why Write?: A Masterclass on the Art of Writing and Why it Matters by Mark Edmundson

—I picked this up at my job so it was free. I got it because I like to read books on writing.


Wolf Children: Ame & Yuki by Mamoru Hosoda, art by Yu

—As I mentioned in my recent Wishes for My TBR post, I had a 40%-off coupon for B&N and after reading Summer’s review again, I found myself adding this book to my cart. I’m debating whether or not to watch the movie first.

Book of the Month Club


Behold the Dreamers by Imbolo Mbue

—I was so glad to see that this was a pick for the month.

The Secret History by Donna Tartt

—I was glad to see this book too because I’ve been trying to get a copy from Book Outlet but always miss when it’s on the site.

What I’m reading this weekend:

It will be these four this weekend. I’m still making my way through Assassin’s Quest on my buddy read and am still reading Thunder & Lightning as well. Lots of facts in that one and illustrations too.

Lucy and The Sound of All Things are pretty short so I’ll get through them very quickly.

What are your reading plans for the weekend?

  1. Oh gosh, I’m so late with this comment, but yay! I’m so, so happy you decided to pick up Wolf Children, Zezee. It’s such a heartwarming story with beautiful art; I have a good feeling you’re going to enjoy it. Happy reading! I can’t wait to see your thoughts once you pick it up. (Also, the animation is wonderful, and I actually saw it before I read the manga.)

  2. Ah, so you’re going to keep going with the Lunar Chronicles with Cress! I did like it more than Scarlet, which I know didn’t work too well for you, so crossing fingers you’ll have a better time with book three. Looking forward to hear what you think. I have been really slacking and need to read the last book one of these days.


    1. I sure am. My curiosity is invested in the series. Oh cool. Well, if I catch up to the last book and you haven’t read by then, maybe we can buddy read it.


  3. I loved loved loved cress by marissa Meyer and winter is on my tbr for next week! At last! Assassins quest is on my to buy list after reading assassins apprentice a few weeks back and falling in love with the characters. Good luck with your weekend reads, I plan on tackling another book tomorrow as I finished two today (diety and apollyon by j.l. armentrout). I am considering starting either assassins heart or burning glass and making more progress on the final empire! Good luck!


    1. Haha! A lot of peeps seem to like Cress so I’ll go in with an open mind.
      Oh gosh yes! The Farseer series gets better and the world expands as the books progress. So far, Assassin’s Quest is great. And all the best on your reading this weekend too!
