Library Loot-September 9

Hosted by Eva at A Stripped Armchair and Marg at Reading Adventures.
We share what we each picked up at the library during the week.


The Blame Game is back on!!! and then a few that I have to take responsibility for!!


Dreamfever by Karen Marie Moning
** All my fault. I love this paranormal/romance series. Can't wait to see what MacKayla is up to!








A Beautiful Blue Death by Charles Finch
** I spotted this book at Barnes & Noble and noted that it was a Victorian English mystery that had been nominated for an Agatha Award. And for some reason I'm on a bit of a mystery kick!






The Widow's Season by Laura Brodie
Blame goes to Kay @ the Infinite Shelf. Read her fantastic review here!







Hate List by Jennifer Brown
I heard about this one over at Presenting Lenore and it sounded like a YA book that I would really enjoy! Especially that we had a hate list problem 2 years ago at my middle school!!





The Stolen One by Suzanne Crowley
** Another one to blame on Lenore!! She doesn't mind at all. Look at that cover isn't it gorgeous? Plus the story is really awesome sounding:When her adoptive mother dies, Katherine Bab takes the chance she has been waiting for her whole life: she moves from her country village to London, to uncover the secret of who she really is. Before long, Kat has become a favorite of Queen Elizabeth herself, and rumors are swirling - could fiery-haired Kat be the secret daughter of the Virgin Queen?

Empire Falls by Richard Russo
** Realistically I could blame this on just about every blogger out there that has read and reviewed That Old Cape Magic. (Diana, JoAnn, Rebecca)I fell in love with each blogger's post and the more I read, the more I was convinced that I had to read this author. So I decided to start with Empire Falls!!




Books Read in 2009 to date: 134
Number of Books Checked out from the library:19
Book Blogger Buddies Recommendations TBR List: 238 last week 250 this week

  9. I like the looks of Blue Death and the Widow's Season. My book review for Land of Cotton is posted on my book review page if you want to take a look. I liked it.

  20. I've never heard of A Beautiful Blue Death before but it sounds good! (I love Victorian mysteries.) And The Widow's Season is on my list already (and I haven't even read Kay's review yet). Enjoy your books!

  21. Good haul. I am waiting for the next Fever book to come out myself.

    The other one I will probably get at some point or another is The Stlen One.

  22. Oh, another one I've got on my TBR pile by my desk: A Beautiful Blue Death. Bride of the Book God reviewed it a little while ago, and got me on it. I'll have to look into Empire Falls since everyone seems to be talking about it....
