Library Loot- March 18

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

Geez, I think I just need to step up to the front of the class and tell you all right now, "I'm a bookaholic and I need help." There, it's out in the open and we can all see that I have problems and I'm trying to come to grips with them....maybe!! I went to the library because there was 1 book waiting for me, did you hear me? I said 1, but I came home with 5 extra ones. Somehow when I got up to the check-out counter there were all these "extra" reads. Here is what I brought home:

The Zookeeper's Wife by Diane Ackerman

--I saw this on someone's blog in reference to the WWII Challenge. I usually always mark where I saw the book review but this time I messed up! I will blame all my book blogging buddies.

The Owl Service by Alan Garner

--This is entirely Nymeth's fault. Read her awesome review here.

Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard

--no one to blame for this one. I saw this at B&N and thought it might be interesting to read. Then I ran across a student that was reading the series and she told me they were good, so I figured why not?

Against Medical Advice by James Patterson

--I thought that this story just sounded interesting. I want to know what is wrong with this little boy and how his family helped him.

Sucks to Be Me- The All-True confessions of MINA HAMILTON Teen Vampire
by Kimberly Pauley

-- I'm a sucker for a teen vampire story!

Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr

--I've seen this book and the author on blogs so when I ran across this one I decided to add it to my pile, because I'm INSANE!!!!

What did you bring home from the library? Please include your link in your comments so that I can visit you!! And probably add your titles to my huge TBR list!!

To Read List Total today 3/18/09 : 632
Last week's To Read List Total 3/11/2009: 620
Books Read in 2009 to date: 29


  1. Wicked Lovely is the only one of your list I've read, and I LOVED it. Thanks for participating in Library Loot-don't forget to add your post to Mr. Linky so everyone can come visit you! :)

  2. I have Wicked Lovely checked out from the library as well. I've heard tons of good things about this series and I am really looking forward to it. Enjoy your finds :)

  3. LOL-maybe we should start an online support group. I'm almost scared to tell you how good the Pretty Little Liars series is cause then you're likely to blame me for having to read them. lol. Anyhow, they're a great YA series and I've enjoyed getting to know the girls. I'm anxiously awaiting the sixth one now I think. Happy Reading.

  4. Oh that always happens to me... go pick up one book and a bunch of others end up in the book bag too :)

    I read Sucks to be Me last year and thought it was pretty cute. Enjoy the library loot!

  5. I feel your pain - I have a virtual list of over 300, but I have over 50 books checked out from the library sitting on my floor right now. I despair of ever reading all of them. Maybe one day . . .
    Enjoy your addiction, though, I have to say I think it's a good one to have. :)

  6. I actually am not too bad at only picking up only what is on hold! I just put a lot of books on hold at any one time!

    I have been interested in reading The Zookeeper's Wife for a while now!

  7. Ahh Wicked Lovely, that's been on my list for a while. I have also heard nothing but good things about it. I'll be looking for your review.

    Nice haul :)

  8. Nah, you're not insane. Or maybe we all are :P I hope you enjoy The Owl Service! Wicked Lovely is one I want to read too.

  9. nvcm jh j v asreyuduhur utryiuthfdvAEGJG,MFG CB GFBHRFHFSfj frjgk

    That's from Simon, he say's look at all the books. He really was saying that. :)

  10. I have Sucks to Me in my pile. But I bought it, so it can wait...ha!

  11. Well the first step is admitting you have a problem and that you are powerless over books. LOL!

    Girl you crack me up so much!

    That pretty little liars seemed interesting too. I probably would have picked it up.

    Hope you are having a terrific week my friend!!! :)

  12. 632? Oh my goodness! I'm glad you've got such great loot - you'll need it to get through that TBR list :)

    Happy reading!

  13. I can't wait to see what you think about The Zookeeper's Wife. I've heard lots of good things about it.

    Diary of an Eccentric

  14. Haven't read any of those, but I have both The Zookeeper's Wife and Against Medical Advice on the TBR shelves right now, and both The Owl Service and Wicked Lovely on the wish list. You know, I think we just might all be insane!

  15. What a great list of books. The Owl Service is quite wonderful - as is all of Alan Garner's work!

  16. You aren't the only bookaholic, Staci. The book blogging community is a bit of support group, wouldn't you say? Although we tend to be enablers more than anything, don't we? :-)

    The Zookeeper's Wife is one I am looking forward to reading, hopefull this year. And Wicked Lovely is one I hope to eventually read. I just love that title and cover!

    I hope you enjoy your library books!

  17. Oh do read The Zookeeper's Wife. The story is entirely true but reads as easily as a good novel. It's a great story. I'd love to know what you think afterward.
