  1. The Martian was a really fun read. I don't read much, but it a shame i only learned how good this book was from a. Movie trailer. Pocket full of murder looks interesting.

  2. I'm really loved Lois Lane: Fallout and would love to read Walk On Earth A Stranger by Rae Carson. I'm @BooksByKaelyn on Twitter.

  3. I loved Station Eleven!
    I think I would choose Six Impossible Things

  4. Right now, I'm really enjoying The Hallow Bow, the third Lockwood book. I would probably choose A Nearer Moon. And my twitter handle is @mrbenimartin

  5. I'm shocked to realize I do not remember the last fiction book I have read in the last couple months. I'm pretty sure I haven't finished a single one. Instead, I have been filling my time with a new baby, Gilmore Girls, and the non-fiction book, How To Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie. I did really enjoy that book and all the anecdotal stories in it made up for the fact it wasn't fiction a little bit.

    I am really looking forward to read Ash & Bramble, whether I win it or I can find time to get it from the library.
