Even though I recently shared my distasteful history with our inner city libraries, I can’t just NOT GO to the library! I mean, I read 156 books last year, there is no way I could afford to buy that many. But I am lucky(?) enough to work in Northern Virginia so I can enjoy their nice suburban 0nes. In fact I’ve been to the library twice in the past 3 days as I’ve had a couple of holds come through.
I put the whole KMM Fever series on hold, but OF COURSE the lady(man?) who has the first book the series is taking forever to return it. Quel irony that the 2nd and 3rd books in the series are available but whoever has the first one is just sitting on it for over a month, n’est-ce pas?
I was getting kinda worked up about this (in case you can’t tell) but my grousing and fuming was interrupted by a sliver of hope – maybe the library has it is Large Print? I’ve done this before in other Extreme Circumstances where imusthavebookNOW and was thrilled to find Darkfever was indeed in the LP section!
This series came recommended by Smexy Mandi following my disillusionment of long series as the Fever series clocks in at 4 published and the 5th and final coming out this December. I can also now happily add Richelle Mead’s Vampire Academy series to my list of “approved length” series as I just found out it’s “only” going to be 6 long with the final one coming out this year too!
Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen: sisters, magic, the South, and family ties all sound like things I want to read about! This is an author I have seen good things about all over the place, so I have her other books on hold too.
Going Too Far, Jennifer Echols: I’m reading this one first, sorry Fever series! But the hype and promise of this book is too good to ignore!
Twenties Girl, Sophie Kinsella: caught my eye on the new release shelf, even though it’s been out for a year, but Kinsella is a reliable, likeable popcorn/lighthearted read for me.
Darkfever, Bloodfever, Faefever, by Karen Marie Moning: saving these for the weekend so I can read about MacKayla’s discovery she is no ordinary 21st century woman all in a row.
