Library Loot-February 25

Library Loot hosted by Eva and Alessandra asks us to list what we brought home from the library this week.

Can I just say that I have absolutely no business checking out more books from the library this week?????????? But that didn't stop me! Thank god I'm addicted to reading and acquiring books and not like drugs or alcohol!! I'd definitely need an intervention.

On to the loot------------

Living Dead Girl by Elizabeth Scott

I had to add this because Heather at Book Addiction wrote a fantastic review that absolutely compelled me to get this book!!

Laika by Nick Abadzis

Another graphic novel that I had to read because of a wonderful review I came across. This book is all Nymeth's fault and you can read her review here at her fantastic blog, things mean a lot.

Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay

My friend Dar is responsible for this one coming home with me. After reading her wonderful series of posts regarding this book and her final review, I knew without a doubt that I had to read this novel!! Please visit Dar's blog, Peeking Between the Pages, for her excellent review.

Still Alice by Lisa Genova

Well, I'm not sure who to blame for this one but I'm going to pin it on everyone in the book blogging world that has reviewed this and made me feel like my life wouldn't be the same if I didn't read it immediately....Thanks to all of you!!

I like the idea of blaming others for my reading stack getting ever larger....helps to spread the guilt around!!!

To Read List Total today 2/25/09 : 556
Last week's To Read List Total 2/4/2009: 528


  1. You got some good books! I went to the library today myself, but only checked out movies for my son! I couldn't bring myself to check out any books - I have too many on my shelves right now!

  2. I love Elizabeth Scott! and the cover of Still Alice is gorgeous!

  3. I heard so many great things about Living Dead Girl! I agree with you: it's better to be addicted to reading and acquiring books than anything else. Except chocolate!

  4. I can't wait to hear what you think of Still Alice...I really want to read this one soon!!
    I have Sarah's Key on my TBR shelf. Great stack of books Staci!

  5. Living Dead Girl has been on my list for some time but I've been too... intimidated by it to put it on hold at a library.

    Let me know how it goes - you may be the extra push I need to get my hands on it once and for all!

  6. I admit I haven't heard of any of these books before, but now I'm curious..

  7. They all sound really interesting! And yes, book bloggers definitely make the addiction much worse. ;)

  8. I just stopped by via crone51, Woodstock. Nice to meet you. I'll be back.

  9. My husband bought me Sarah's Key for Christmas, but I haven't had a chance to read it yet. It sounds soooo good! Hope you enjoy these.

  10. I too read Dar's reviews and fell in love with this book - I definitely have to pick this one up the next time I'm at the library (if they have it in - LOL).

  11. I LOVE the idea of blaming everyone else. I just might have to use that for my lack of self control :)

  12. Remember you just turned a year older. Do you really think you can get through all 556 (or whatever outrageous number it was) books before you kick the bucket?

  13. 556 TBR! I am not counting mine, because a number like that might kill me.

  14. Oh, I hope you like Laika!

    Living Dead Girl is one I want to read, too. But after Tender Morsels, I need to wait a while...I probably can't handle another abuse story just yet. I will read it sometime, though.

  15. I love the cover on Still Alice!

  16. Thanks for the shout out Staci-I think you'll like Sarah's Key. I got Living Dead Girl from the library last week---lol, great minds think alike. It is much better to blame others for what you bring home too I think.

  17. 556!?!?!?! You go girl! You surpassed my list by a couple of hundred. I think that is awesome what an avid reader you are. You are right, at least it isn't drugs or alcohol.

    I hope you have a terrific Friday my friend!

  18. I really want to read Still Alice - it sounds so good!

  19. I'm still debating on reading Living Dead Girl. Everyone seems to love it but also to say the subject matter is really upsetting...
