"A book, too, can be a star, a living fire to lighten the darkness, leading out into the expanding universe." — Madeleine L'Engle

Books of Before (3)

Books of Before is going to be random books that I want to read and are available to read whenever I want to. They could have been published last week or last year or even more! =)

Uglies by Scott Westerfeld

Why: I've seen how a lot people really liked this series but for some reason I never had the urge to read them. I actually tried reading it once but I couldn't get into it but I feel like it's only right to try again.

The Maze Runner by James Dashner

Why: I had been wanting to read it for a long time but I would always pick up something else. Now that all the bo0ks are out I feel like I wouldn't have to wait a whole year for the next book so that encourages me even more to read it. 

For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund

Why: It was inspired by Persuasion by Jane Austen and it's set in the future! I know I haven't actually read Persuasion but I saw the BBC adaptation of it and I loved it! This story might even be the one I love the most. Especially with Captain Wentworth!
