The other day Barnes & Noble had an online sale, so I decided to purchase some books. The books I bought are All the Light We Cannot See, The Girl on the Train, Library of Souls: The Third Novel of Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children, A Man Called Ove, Asylum, and The Peculiar Life of a Lonely Postman.
All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr: I usually read thrillers, so I was looking for books that were a different genre, and this one caught my attention. The setting takes place during World War II in German-occupied France where the paths of a blind French girl and a German boy collide.
$16.84 for Hardcover at Barnes & Noble
The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins: I have read several reviews of this book and it seemed rather interesting. This is a thriller that follows Rachel on her daily commute past a couple’s house when she sees something shocking that changes everything.
You can read my The Girl on the Train Book Review if you would like.

Library of Souls: The Third Novel of Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs: I finished reading Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (book review), and I am starting the second novel, Hollow City, so I purchased the third novel because I enjoy this series. The novel picks up where the second one ends, and the main character Jacob travels through time to rescue his peculiar companions.
You can now read my Library of Souls Book Review.

A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman: This is a feel-good story that follows the life of a grumpy old man named Ove when a young couple with two daughters move in next door.
$9.71 for Paperback at Barnes & Noble
Asylum by Madeleine Roux: When I purchased Hollow City, this book was recommended to me because it is a thriller and includes creepy photos like the Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children series. The story takes place in an old psychiatric hospital that is now a dorm at a summer college prep program that Dan is attending. Dan and his friends begin to explore the hospital and unravel the dark secrets of the hospital’s past.

The Peculiar Life of a Lonely Postman by Denis Theriault: This book was recommended to me a while back, and it follows the postman Bilodo as he starts stealing people’s mail and comes across letters from a woman and a poet containing haikus. Bilodo begins to fall in love with the woman, and he then witnesses a tragic accident involving the poet. Bilodo decides to impersonate the poet and continue writing to the woman.
I have since read the book, and you can read my The Peculiar Life of a Lonely Postman Book Review.
