    I really want to read Life as We KNew it. I recall someone blogging a really good review on it. I think it might have been Nymeth. A good selection of books to keep you busy reading.

  2. Heather says:

    The Hunger Games!!! Read it!!!

    Wow, to only go once a WEEK, you sure got a lot of books! That looks like my kind of haul! lol

  3. Michelle says:

    Ooh, what a great selection! I really want to read Chains, Life as We Knew It and especially The Hunger Games! Happy reading.

  4. Iliana says:

    Oh look at all that library loot. I really want to read The Elegance of the Hedgehog. Love the title and the cover.

  5. N.Vasillis says:

    Scrap girl: Yep, it was Nymeth. She’s the reason why I checked it out!

    Heather: I put all of my books on hold online. That way I can just stop in and pick them up! I can’t wait to see what you received!

    Michelle: Thanks!

    Iliana: I’ve been on hold for this book for months now. I can’t wait to read it.

  6. fleurfisher says:

    Wow! That’s a fantastic array of books. The only one I’ve read is “The Elegance of the Hedgehog” which I loved. Enjoy!

  7. Erika Lynn says:

    so many great books. Chains is amazing.

  8. claire says:

    I really enjoyed The Elegance of the Hedgehog.. hope you do, too. 🙂

  9. Eva says:

    Wow! We’re similar library users. 😉 I didn’t realise Laurie Halse Anderson wrote a novel about slavery-I hope you review it soon!

  10. saveophelia says:

    I picked up a really cheap copy of No One Belongs Here More Than You. I still haven’t had a chance to read it. I’m looking forward to your review!

  11. Staci says:

    Chains and Life as We Knew It are both fantastic!! Hunger Games is sitting beside my bed!! I love how out of control you are in the library…doesn’t make me feel so bad about my own library problem!!!

    Great loot!!!

  12. Kristi says:

    Wow – that’s a lot of books – and seems like a nice mix. Enjoy your reading!

  13. N.Vasillis says:

    Thanks, Fleur!

    Erika, everyone is saying that! I plan on reading it soon.

    Thanks, Claire!

    Eva, I think we do have some of the same taste in books. I hope to get to Chains soon. I have to get Tender Morsels out the way.

    Staci, I am so out of control! =) I was just putting more books on hold a minute ago!

    Thanks, saveophelia!

  14. Kailana says:

    That’s a lot of books! I probably get about that many, but they come in spurts so I don’t really notice… (Or pretend not to, anyway!) And, it is not like I don’t have tonnes of my own books to read… I am thinking I need to start staying off the library website. Of course, today I said that and then went browsing the new arrival list and found fantasy/sci-fi books… (My library has a bad selection overall.) So, I added like five to my holds list…

  15. Linda says:

    Wow, you will be busy. My hubby loves the Fables series. I liked but not as mush as he did.

  16. Kara says:

    What a nice haul of books!!!I need to get some titles for the Banned Book Challenge.

  17. samantha.1020 says:

    These all look great!!! I’ve been wanting to read a few of these and will be interested in hearing your thoughts when you finish. Great loot and enjoy 🙂

  18. Nymeth says:

    Oooh…fantastic loot! Happy reading 😀

  19. J. Kaye says:

    I am so sorry you have not been well. I don’t see how you are able to do all you do!

    Love your LL. Thought LIFE AS WE KNEW IT was an awesome read.

  20. Nise' says:

    That’s a lot of loot! Chains and Time Is A River are both great. Enjoy.

    That’s a lot of loot! Chains and Time Is A River are both great. Enjoy.

  22. Gavin says:

    Wow, what a haul. I’ve got several of these on my TBR list. Can’t wait to hear what you think of them.

    I really enjoyed Don’t Sleep, There are Snakes but then I’m kind of an anthropology nut:)

  23. Joseph says:

    I too check out many books from the library. Perhaps we could just be library pirates. The more loot the better!!!

  24. N.Vasillis says:

    Kailana: Library websites can be addictive.

    Linda: Hopefully I will be able to read every book I checked out.

    J.Kaye: Thanks! I can’t wait to read Life as We Knew it.

    Thanks, Nise. I keep hearing great things about both books.

    Samantha, Gavin, and Nymeth: Thanks!

    Joseph: Library pirates sound perfect!

    The Hunger Games and Life As We Knew It sound great! They are both on my TBR list – I love post apocalypse stuff!
