Bad Bloggers - Take Four Part Two
Okay, so all of my library holds seem to be coming in this week... I just got the pile down, too! If I could stay off the library website, all would be well... But, at least I am not spending money, right?
Anyway, so I got:
Picked up on Tuesday:
Life Sucks by Jessica Abel, Gabe Soria, and Warren Pleece - I read it already. Iliana gets the blame.
Specials and Extras by Scott Westerfeld - I am continuing with my theme of blaming this series on Carl. I am looking forward to seeing what happens with these books. Especially since Specials was supposed to be the last book, so you would think it would have a satisfying ending. There is a book about the books, too, which I will read eventually. As to Westerfeld's writing, though, I will probably take a little break and then I want to read Peeps. (I read Specials. Review forth-coming.)
Laika by Nick Abadzis - Nymeth gets the blame for this one. I don't know if she is the original reason, but she mentioned it on Iliana's blog and I figured it was about time I moved it up the wish list! (Finished. Review forth-coming.)
Being Picked up on Thursday:
Powers by Ursula K. Le Guin - Another point for Nymeth.
The Rose and the Beast: Fairy Tales Retold by Francesca Lia Block. I can't remember who read this author, but I went to look up the book they had read and thought this one looked interesting. (I need to write things down!)
X/1999. Volume 2, Overture by Clamp - Chris recommended this series to me. It figures book two would come in before book 1... That annoys me!
Shattered by Eric Walters - Recommended by Rachel. She gave me a long list of books, so she is going to be having a point collecting spree. (Maybe if you go comment on her blog she will post because it doesn't look like she has posted since December. Slacker!)
The Blooding of Jack Absolute by C.C. Humphreys - Rachel informed that I HAD to read this book right now. I had been planning to read this series eventually, so why not now!
The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner - I have wanted to read this book forever! Something always keeps me from getting to it, so I finally get to read it! Avid Reader (Keishon) is to blame.
Ahem, so I was writing this post before I went to the library... And, well, more books came in while I was writing it... (I check online.)
Montmorency : thief, liar, gentleman? by Eleanor Updale - Rachel again.
Dust by Arthur Slade - Rachel... (Although, it was a given because I loved Jolted) Oh, and I love Rachel, too, of course. I send one message and get like 15 book recommendations. Isn't she great? The library is probably thinking so right about now... ha ha!
Psyche in a Dress by Francesca Lia Block - I don't know. Anyone think it was them?
I REALLY need to write some reviews, eh? I am so beyond behind at this point... (Omg, I read 30 books this month. That's more than a book a day! Where did I find the time for that...) Man, I am 15 reviews behind. Maybe I shouldn't read anymore books for February... Says the person that was so happy she was bringing five books back to the library, but who is now picking up at least 9 more... Go me!
Speaking of the library... Debi read Rose by Jeff Smith (Yes, Debi, you will be getting a point when it comes in!), so I got to thinking I wouldn't mind reading Bones. I was number 22 on the waiting list... Now, does that not sound like a good call on getting more than one copy of the book? That's just crazy! So, I decided to get Rose and I will have to buy Bones one of these days.
