Throwback Thursday (43)

Let's talk about those books already on the shelves, yours or the stores.

I have a post for books I'm looking forward to coming out;

Looking Forward To...
But what about all those wonderful books that are ALREADY on the shelves.

Whether it be on your shelf waiting to be read or on the shelves in the stores waiting for you to give it a good home.

So, I thought I would share a book a week that is just waiting for me to travel through it's world.

Now... where do I start? Lets go by Published Date on the books...

This Week:

I bought this one as it sounded like a good series to me and one my son might enjoy as well, with all the reading for school he has to do.  So, I got it.  And I think my son's wanting to read this one soon for school.  Another book he will beat me to!

Goodreads Synopsis:
When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his first name. His memory is blank. But he’s not alone. When the lift’s doors open, Thomas finds himself surrounded by kids who welcome him to the Glade—a large, open expanse surrounded by stone walls.

Just like Thomas, the Gladers don’t know why or how they got to the Glade. All they know is that every morning the stone doors to the maze that surrounds them have opened. Every night they’ve closed tight. And every 30 days a new boy has been delivered in the lift.

Thomas was expected. But the next day, a girl is sent up—the first girl to ever arrive in the Glade. And more surprising yet is the message she delivers. 

Thomas might be more important than he could ever guess. If only he could unlock the dark secrets buried within his mind.

What indeed of all those wonderful books that are already on the shelves? Books that I have read and will one day re-read, books that I have read and will never read again, books waiting to be read, my shelves are groaning and yet I still buy more books.

Ooo, I like the sound of this. There's something scary about not having any memories - after all what are we but a some of our memories and experiences? You should let us know what it's like! :)

PS - Happy Thanksgiving - enjoy the holiday!

Good choice! I read this one and remember liking it, but haven't read any of his other books for some reason. Hope your son enjoys the read!
