Weekends are always full of family time, but I make certain that I have a bit of time for reading too. I'm sharing the books that I took a reading journey with this past weekend. Maybe they will give you ideas on what books you might want to add to your To Be Read list.
You really can't read two books that are more different than the ones I read this weekend. One is dark, deadly, and magical; the other is soul searching and an ode to the love of books. Even though they are quite different, they both were ones that I would recommend to different audiences.

Three Dark Crowns
Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake was one of the books that I chose to spotlight in September as a must read YA book. You can see the other picks in this post.
Three sisters separated when 6 years old are sent to live with people who can train them in their magical gifts. They must learn these deadly gifts in order to claim their crown and become queen of the land. Only one of the sisters will survive as they have to kill each other to become queen.
This is the first book in the brand new series. The start is a bit slow as you get to know the three sisters and the people training them. Each chapter focuses on the story of a different sister. You get to know them in the months leading up to their presentation to the people...and the year that they have to kill each other to claim the crown. Read to the end for the surprise twist!
The Little Paris Bookshop
Do you have a deep love for books? Do you dream of travel? Pick up The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George for a mixture of both. Monsieur Perdu lives a quiet life selling the perfect book to readers from aboard his floating bookshop on the Seine River in Paris. A long lost letter up-anchors his life as he travels to find the truth to his long lost love. Read a detailed review here on my blog by clicking here.
Check back next Monday to see what I read next weekend! There is always room on your To Be Read list for another good book. What have you read lately?
