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!)
