My library loot has been piling up lately. I have less than 36 hours until the end of the semester and I’ve started placing large amounts of books on hold. If I’m lucky I can cut the stack in half in a month. If I’m lucky.
Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta. I’ve seen great reviews for this book all over the blogisphere so I had to pick it up. It’s this year’s Printz award winner. I can’t wait to sit down with this book.
The Knife of Letting Go by Patrick Ness. Renay has been pumping this book up, so I had to check it out.
Che: A biography by Spain Rodriguez. I picked this one up because I love the cover.
Still Alice by Lisa Genova.
Girl with a Dragon Tattoo by Steig Larsson. It’s a thriller and from what I’ve read a great book. If it’s it as good as bloggers have been saying, I won’t have to wait long for the release of the seqeul, The Girl Who Played with Fire.
Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw by Jeff Kinney.I’ve read the first two in the series and couldn’t pass this one up. This is one of the hottest series to hit my library’s system since Harry Potter.
What’s waiting for me to pick up:
Follow Me by Joanna Scott. I’m blaming this on every blogger that read this book and wrote a review.
Flannery: A Life of Flannery O’Connor by Bard Gooch. I’m reading as much as I can right now, so I can start on this book next week.
The rest of my library loot was featured in this week’s Sunday Salon post: Book Coveting.
What did you check out this week from the library?
