Library Loot hosted by Eva and Alessandra asks us to list what we brought home from the library this week.
I love my local library, without it I would be a lost soul. When we first moved up here from Indiana I was ordering a ton of my books from Amazon. That is until my husband told me that if he saw the UPS guy again with another Amazon box he was going to destroy the computer...so I got out the phone book and figured out where my library was...we've had a very torrid love affair these past 9 years.....
Here is what was waiting for me last Saturday:
Summerhill Secrets by Beverly Lewis
I found this in the YA section and because I've enjoyed all of Beverly's Amish based stories in the past I thought I would give this one a try. I will probably end up ordering this for the shelves at my middle school.
The School of Essential Ingredients by Erica Bauermeister
I HAD to get this book because so many of my book blogger friends have given it such glowing reviews. The cover alone makes me want to read it!
Jellicoe Road by Melina Marachetta
This book just received the Printz award so for that alone I feel the need to read it!! But I saw that Reviewer X's Blog was really happy that it won and I love her YA reviews so much that her approval really sealed the deal for me!
The Good Neighbors by Holly Black & Ted Naifeh
I've been wanting to add more graphic novels to my mix and this one seemed to fill that slot!
The Best American Short Stories 2008 edited by Salman Rushdie
I wasn't looking for this book, it reached off the shelves and tapped me on the shoulder. When I saw it was a collection of short stories I immediately knew that I needed to read it. I've just started reading short stories, I'm currently reading Interpreter of Maladies, and I've found that I really enjoy them.
This is my first time participating in Library Loot and I can already tell that it will be a dangerous thing for me to follow....my TBR list is currently sitting at 528...how many more will I add by visiting other blogger's Library Loot posts?
This could be fun!!
