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.

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.

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.

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 series. The story takes place in 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.
