So library loot posts are the story of my life these days, well at least my “e-life” as about half of the blog posts I’ve actually written in the past month have solely been for this meme. As you, my gentle readers, may possibly deduce due to your keen intellects these have been my main posts since I’ve been too BUSY reading said loot to write any more blogs. I’ve gone to the library just about every other day as I’m on the wait list for so many books. I get at least one of these emails from my library a week saying my holds are ready to be picked up! I think I’m all caught up with my holds…except for Under the Dome, but I moved from #72 to #34 in the past 6 weeks at least.
So yeah, basically my life = pick up books from lib, read said books, put more books on hold + repeat times infinity.
My library stack from the past 6 days looks like this:
- Loving a Lost Lord, by Mary Jo Putney: (1st in new Lost Lords series) Oh I just love amnesia story lines, in this case it is our half Indian-half British Duke hero who washes up on the beach of our intrepid heroine’s newly-won-in-a-card-game manor house.
- Succubus Blues, by Richelle Mead: (1st in Georgia Kincaid series) Now that I’ve glommed her YA paranormal series (all 4 books in 6 days!) I’m moving onto Ms. Mead’s adult books to tide me over till the next Vampire Academy book is out this summer.
- Leviathan, by Scott Westerfield: I’ve never read any of his books, and after a lot of online buzz I went to buy the YA-steampunk-adventure/quest Leviathan, but the $20 price tag made me scoot my booty right over to the library. Plus the teenage heroine dresses in disguise as a boy, oooooh *dreamy sigh* do I adore that trope.
- The Glass Lake, by Maeve Binchy: I own about 6 of her books set in 1960’s Ireland, and remember this one as one of my favorites back when I first discovered her in 6th grade, I’m surprised I don’t own. As soon as I got the idea in my head to read it I had to get it ASAP! so picked it up in Large Print, it is quite hefty. And no, that’s not the first time I’ve resorted to LP to assuage my need for instant gratification.
