Library Loot- June 10 and Waiting on Wednesday

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

I read a fantastic post last night at Nicole's blog, Linus's Blanket. This was all about our book addictions and I left her a comment stating that I now had 7 good excuses for continuing to bring books into the house faster than I can read them. I was all ready to use one of them this morning but realized I only have 2 books to post......sooooo, I will save those excuses when I really need them!!

after the moment by Garret Fremann-Weyr
** I read about this book on Shelf Awareness and the premise sounds really good. My library is great about having the newest books and I looked it up and there it was!!
Told with compassion and true understanding, After the Moment is about what happens when a young man discovers that sometimes love fails us, and that, quite often, we fail love.

Blue Bloods by Melissa De La Cruz
** I've seen this all over the book blogging community and in my own middle school hallways. YA and vampires---great combination!
The Blue Bloods vowed that their immortal status would remain a closely guarded secret. And they kept that secret for centuries. But now, in New York City, the secret is seeping out.

Jill over at Breaking the Spine
that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Undone by Karin Slaughter
Release Date: July 14, 2009

Someone had spent time with her -- someone well-practiced in the art of pain... Three years ago former Grant County medical examiner Sara Linton moved to Atlanta hoping to leave her tragic past behind her. Now working as a doctor in Atlanta's Grady Hospital she is starting to piece her life together. But when a severely wounded young woman is brought in to the emergency room, she finds herself drawn back into a world of violence and terror. The woman has been hit by a car but, naked and brutalized, it's clear that she has been the prey of a twisted mind. When Special Agent Will Trent of the Criminal Investigation Team returns to the scene of the accident, he stumbles on a torture chamber buried deep beneath the earth. And this hidden house of horror reveals a ghastly truth - Sara's patient is just the first victim of a sick, sadistic killer. Wrestling the case away from the local police chief, Will and his partner Faith Mitchell find themselves at the center of a grisly murder hunt. And Sara, Will and Faith - each with their own wounds and their own secrets - are the only thing that stands between a madman and his next crime...
