Hi everyone! As a result of the holidays and little spare time I had a crazy library day yesterday! I picked up 16 things... I was only going to get some of them, but if I didn't get them yesterday they were not going to go away and the pile would just keep getting bigger! I am not sure how often I will do library loot, but since yesterday was a strange day I decided to at least share that largish pile.
Austenland: A Novel by Shannon Hale - I really like her young adult stuff, but have never read anything adult by her. I may hate it, but I just wanted to give her other stuff a try. She has a new young adult book out, but I will buy that at some point because I have the rest of the series.
The Factory Voice by Jeanette Lynes - Once in a while books show up for me at the library that I cannot remember why I requested them. This is one such book... It sounds really good, though, so there must have been a reason!
Miki Falls - Volume 3 - Autmumn by Mark Crilley - I read books 1 and 2 in this series in 2009. I was thinking I was going to have to buy books 3 and 4 because the library doesn't have them, but they bought this one the other day. Now, I hope they buy book 4!
The Miles Between by Mary E. Pearson - I loved The Adoration of Jenna Fox in 2009 and this is the authors new novel. I was supposed to buddy read it with Heather from A Capricious Reader, but my copy took longer to come in than planned. Still, looking forward to it!
Amulet - Volume 2 - The Stonekeeper's Curse by Kazu Kibuishi - I read the first volume near the end of 2009. This is the second volume. I have to admit that I hardly remember the first book, so it is not the best series ever by any means...
Fish for Dinner by Paul O'Neill - Stories from Newfoundland and Labrador. I saw this on the new releases page and thought it sounded interesting.
Good to a Fault by Marina Endicott - Up for Canada Reads this year. Up for a few other awards when it was released, too.
Ice Land by Betsy Tobin - Heard really good things about this and my library just bought it.
The Lost City of Z by David Grann - This book got a lot of positive reviews for the Non-fiction Five, so I thought I would give it a try. I have been waiting a while for it to come in.
The Tudors: The Complete First Season - A DVD set. Not something I normally request from the library, but I really want to watch this show.
Edgar Allan Poe's Tales of Death and Dementia - This might have came to my attention through the Cybils. I can't remember.
What the Dog Saw by Malcolm Gladwell - Looking forward to this book. Hope I get around to it because it has to be back to the library soon.
The Beekeeper's Apprentice by Laurie R. King - I keep hearing good things about this series, so even though it is not my normal read I wanted to give it a try.
Pyongyang by Guy Delisle - Saw this on a list for the Graphic Novel Challenge and thought it looked interesting.
The Photographer by Emmanuel Guibert - I have seen good things about this book and my library finally bought a copy.
Amelia Earhart: the thrill of it by Susan Wels - Not sure where I heard about this, but I like reading about Amelia Earhart.
So, there you have it! Lots and lots of books. The sad thing is that I won't get to read them all and I really want to be able to read all of them!
