Going along with my recent book buying ban, I have been seriously hitting up the library for all of my lusty reading needs…well not all, they hardly have any romance novels at my libraries *harumph* So I suppose I should say, all of my NON lusty reading needs. Despite not having 90% of the romance novels on my wish list, I still picked up plenty of books from other genres on the rest of my list. Yes, I do read non-romance novels! This trip to the library was made even more successful by the fact that Girl Scouts were selling cookies out front, so I walked away with the quite the loot, both in books and in thin mints! So what did I get???
Anna and the French Kiss, by Stephanie Perkins: there has been a lot of buzz about this one around the book blogs, and I’m all for YA romances, and have become extra attracted to this kind of read after becoming obsessed with Jennifer Echols, Sarah Dessen, and Simone Elkeles. I’ve heard this one was really cute, but with plenty of angst. After seeing a review from my very trusted book-recommender friend at Katidom, I knew I needed to pick this up!
Last Sacrifice, by Richelle Mead: I am OBSESSED with this YA Vampire Academy series, ya’ll, this is the 6th and final one! I’m so obsessed with this series that I actually BOUGHT the 5th one in HARDCOVER. I never ever ever buy hardcover…so why I am I getting this one from the library? *sigh* There is a love triangle. And I dont think Rose ends up with the guy I like. I’m actually scared to read this, it’s a monster of a book (610 pgs) and although I haven’t read any reviews for fear of spoilers I just have this terrible feeling I will not like this book. I actually have a strong feeling I just might not even read it and just return it.
Bed of Roses, by Nora Roberts: I read the first in the Bride Quartet and didn’t love it, it was a little flat…but I saw this 2nd one on the library new releases shelf and thought, why not? I need some light reading for my metro commute!
The Three Weissmanns of Westport, by Cathleen Schine: the review for this one in last month’s People Magazine intrigued me, and as I said above, I like a little bit of diversity in my reading diet, so this one can fill my “literary fiction” quota ;)
Library loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Marg from The Adventures of an Intrepid Reader and Claire from The Captive Reader that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library.
