Library Loot hosted by Eva and Alessandra asks us to list what we brought home from the library this week.
This week I feel like I hit the jackpot!! Now we'll see how many I actually get through before I have to renew them!!
Who By Fire by Diana Spechler
So many great book reviews on this book that when I saw it on the shelf I had to immediately grab it! This excellent review can be read here at Musings of a Bookish Kitty . Tell me that you could resist this book after reading this review!
The God of Animals by Aryn Kyle
This book has been on my TBR list forever so I decided to grab it again!! I checked it out a while back and never got around to it. I hope to finish it this time!
The Polysyllabic Spree by Nick Hornby
I started reading this the other day and am totally enjoying his writings about books. Which ones he's bought and which ones he's actually read. This book is a compilation of the column that he use to write for The believer Magazine.
The Gifted Gabaldon Sisters by Lorraine Lopez
Remember that Weekly Geek post about covers? Well, I picked this strictly because I loved the cover. I've seen some reviews on Goodreads and while they're not the greatest, I'm going to try to read this without prejudice. Wish me luck!
Wake by Lisa McMann
The premise of this book sounds great and The Compulsive Reader loved it so that means I should read it!!!
Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout
Because JoAnn and Mellymel said I should!!
Chocolat by Joanne Harris
I must read this because 1) I've been meaning to for years
2) It is about my favorite thing ever-chocolate
3) I would be a loser if I didn't!
Skim words by Mariko Tamaki, Drawings by Jillian Tamaki
I'm on a big graphic novel kick right now and the cover art sold me!! Once again, I'm a sucker for the cover!
I think I made a pretty good haul this time and because I love to make lists and let my OCD side win I must get these books put into my little reading calendar immediately!! My big goal this year is to read EVERYTHING I bring home from the library....unattainable I know but I'm giving it a run for its money!!!!
To Read List Total today 2/16/09 : 601

Reading book blogs has become hazardous to my reading health!!
