Bad Bloggers Take Two
I am on my way to the library to pick up four books (which will bring my library check-outs up to 9) and I thought I would do bad bloggers now before I forget!
So, I have to pick up:
Black Ships by Jo Graham - I totally couldn't remember where I heard about this book, but then it dawned on me! Sarah from Reading the Past. She never reviewed it, but when she mentioned the sequel she said that she highly recommended it, so on the wish list it did go!
The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart - I have seen lots of reviews of this book, but I think it was Sassymonkey (Karen) that inpired me to add it to the wish list!
Pretties by Scott Westerfeld - I am blaming Westerfeld on Carl. You see, he told me to read his short story in The Starry Rift anthology. I ended up loving the story, so that lead to me adding books by Westerfeld to my wish list. So, even though Carl has not read this book, it is all traced back to him. (You should read Westerfeld, Carl.)
Voices by Ursula K. Le Guin - Nymeth! I see that Nymeth is a bad influence on lots of readers. So, don't take this the wrong way, Nymeth, but I am happy you are not the over-whelming winner so far (though that might change). It just shows that there is some variety in my reading, right? Did that come out bad...
Also, in the mail last week I received the five books in the Kitty Norvick series from the publisher! Yay! I already read the first one, and I think I am going to really enjoy the series.
