I haven’t participated in showing my library loot since last month. So instead of just showing you what I checked out yesterday, I’m going to also show you what I still have out. Hopefully I’ll get into gear and most of this stack will be read within the month, perfect timing for summer vacation.
Laika by Nick Abadzis
Skellig by David Almond
Comic Book Tattoo
A Fine and Private Place by Peter S. Beagle (really I need to hurry and read this)
Psyche in a Dress by Francesca Lia Block
Masterpiece by Elise Broach.
The Sisters Grim #2: The Unusual Suspects by Michael Buckley
Black Swan, White Raven edited by Ellen Datlow
Beauty and the Beast by Max Eilenberg
The Music Teacher by Barbara Hall.
The Story is You by Arthur Phillips.
The Seance by John Harwood.
Cannery Row by John Steinbeck
How I learned to drive by Paula Vogel. Won 1998 Pulitzer Prize in Drama.
All Souls by Cathleen Schutt. It was a finalist for this year’s Pulitzer Prize in fiction.
The Woman in Black: A Ghost Story by Susan Hill
The Haiku Anthology edited by Cor van den Heuvel
Maus I by Art Speigelman. 1992 Pulitzer: Special Awards and Citations in Letters
Crumbs From the Table of Joy by Lynn Nottage. Nottage won this year’s Pulitzer for her play, Ruined. Since my library doesn’t have it yet, I decided to check out Crumbs.
The Goose Girl by Shannon Hale.
The History of Love by Nicole Krauss. Shortlisted for Orange Prize in 2006
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society by Mary Ann Scaffer and Annie Barrows. I’m listening to this on audio while I read the book.
Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie. Same thing with Pan as with Guernsey. The kids love being “read” to.
Graceling by Kristin Cashore. During School Library Journal’s Battle of the Books, many wanted The Hunger Games to go up against Graceling to see who would win. It made me curious, so hopefully I’ll read this soon.
So that’s my library loot for April.
