Bad Bloggers - Take Six, Part Two

Thursday is my other library day. Today I am bringing back three books and bringing home the following:

Rapunzel's Revenge by Shannon Hale - Wanted since it came out.

The disreputable history of Frankie Landau-Banks : a novel by E. Lockhart - Lots of good reviews, but most recently Chris.

Marked by P.C. Cast - Stephanie. She has made me want to read this series forever!

The Tale of One Bad Rat by Bryan Talbot - Nymeth, but also I wanted to read more from Talbot after finishing Alice in Sunderland and this is the only other book the library has by him. (This book will also work for Dewey's Challenge)

The fat woman next door is pregnant : a novel by Michel Tremblay - One of the Canada Reads books for this year. Will work for the 2nd Canadian Challenge.

Wolf Brother by Michelle Paver - Mariel recently read a couple of the books later in the series. Figured it was worth a try!

Exile's Song: A Novel of Darkover by Marion Zimmer Bradley - My own excitement over Bradley recently lead me to take out a book in this series. Deb read this trilogy and had good things to say about it, so I figured this was as good a place to start as any!

Fruits Basket - Volume 3 & 4 by Natsuki Takaya - Continuing on with this manga series.

Then, a few graphic novels that caught my interest from the blog for the challenge:

Epileptic by David B.
A Distant Soil Vol 1 & 2 by Colleen Doran

I think that this weekend is going to be a graphic novel weekend.

Then, in the mail I received:
Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic by Alison Bechdel - I won it for the New Author Challenge. I read a review in the last week or so that lead me to add it to my wish list in the first place, but I can't remember where at the moment

The Love We Share Without Knowing by Christopher Barzak - The author sent me a copy of his book! Point for Nymeth. (Should my inter-library loan of his other book ever surface, she will be getting a point for that, too. I can't get over how slow it is!)


  1. I've got a hold on Marked too. Enjoy your new books!

  2. Thanks, Tink. I was looking at Marked today, thinking about starting it, but I really should try and finish a couple series/trilogies before starting another one!

  3. Wow, you have a big problem with bad bloggers. Me, too! So many good suggestions floating around the blog world.

  4. booklogged: YEP! I am on operation STAY OFF THE LIBRARY WEBSITE! It's actually getting better once I get through the books I have out at the moment it should quiet down for a while.

  5. We never really have in past years, but I've noticed that this year we're reading all of the same stuff!! Which is tons of fun :D I have The Epileptic on my wishlist...I think I read about in the NYT but I could be completely wrong about that. I just ordered The Love we Share too! And I'm about to go get Fun Home from the library myself! Frankie is a really great book...I hope you enjoy that one. I just picked up the Little Giant of Aberdeen County from the library today! I was on the wishlist for that one for awhile!

  6. Chris: Well, it helps that I am actually reading this year! ha ha! I read The Epileptic yesterday and I didn't like it. I have heard good reviews, but you won't hear one from me! Fun Home was good. I really liked it. It was better than Epileptic. I think I might read The Love we Share next. I have Little Giant of Aberdeen County on my wish list, but I haven't requested it from the library yet.

  7. Awesome loot. The only ones I don't want to read are the ones I already read :P

  8. Nymeth: Yep, I am looking forward to all of them! Picking a book to read was hard.


Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

I am so sorry, but I turned anonymous commenting off. I have had it from the very beginning, but that is how the spam is getting by my spam filter at the moment. If it is a big deal I will turn it back on and moderate all comments. I also changed moderation from older than 14 days to older than 7.
