Library Loot- May 27

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

I'm out of excuses for my lack of self control, but I still have people to blame so I'm shunning all responsibility for grabbing these books and placing that upon fellow book lovers!! Here's what I brought home with me last Saturday!!

The Dust of 100 Dogs by A.S. King
I am totally blaming Lenore from Presenting Lenore. Her post was so fantastic that I knew if I came across this book that I would have to get it!!
Isn't the cover pretty cool?

The Might Queens of Freeville by Amy Dickinson
The blaming honors go to Lisa from Books on the Brain. Her review made me want this book!!! As I was browsing the new non-fiction books the title jumped out at me and the book jumped into my bag!!!

The Turnaround by George Pelecanos
I've seen and read so many reviews on this book that I truly felt like I was missing out on something truly wonderful. This book was the reason I went to the main library in the first place!! It's going to be hard to just blame this on one person......Kathy from Bermuda Onion is the person who pushed me over the cliff!! Here is a short excerpt from her fantabulous review!
I really enjoyed this book and was engrossed in it and its characters from start to finish. The character development in this crime novel is fantastic. I empathized with most of the characters and wanted them to make good decisions.

The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart
I'm passing the the buck to Chris from Stuff as Dreams are Made On for this one!! He always writes these wonderfully in-depth and heartfelt reviews and after reading this one I knew I couldn't make it through 2009 without acquiring this from the library!!

Skinned by Robin Wasserman
I don't anyone to blame...darn! I thought the cover looked intriguing (reminded me of the Uglies Series) and after reading the inside jacket, the story sounded good so in the bag it went!!
