Library Loot 7/1 and Waiting on Wednesday

Hosted by Eva at A Stripped Armchair and Marg at Reading Adventures.

I spent some quality time at my local library on Saturday and brought home these goodies!!

The Lace Makers of Glenmara
** Just look at that beautiful cover!! I saw this first at Bonnie's blog, Red Lady's Reading Room and fell in love with the story premise.

Vampire Academy
** All the blame goes to Teddy at The Eclectic Reader. If she hadn't posted this fantastic review of Book 3 then I wouldn't have picked up the first one in the series!!

Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict
** All the blame for this one goes to my buddy Dar of Peeking Between the Pages!! She's used to getting blamed for a lot of my reading problems so this one will come as no big shock!!

A Good Yarn
** I'm going to blame Dar again because she's the reason why I read the first one and now I feel compelled to read the next in the series!!!

Waiting on Wednesday
is hosted by
Jill over at Breaking the Spine
that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

My son Marc has been a zombie fan for years. Way before the wave of zombie books that we've seen being released this year. One of his favorite books is The Zombie Survival Guide. I swear to all of you that if zombies attack our house, Marc has several plans of attack all set up to go!! At one point though he did start to have a few zombie related nightmares so I've told him that he can't read these before he goes to bed because I don't want a 14-year-old sleeping in bed with me and my hubby!!

The Zombie Survival Guide: Recorded Attacks
Published Date: October 6th 2009 by Three Rivers Press

From Goodreads:
Man has battled the undead for millenia. In The Zombie Survival Guide: Recorded Attacks bestselling author and "Studs Terkel of zombie journalism," Max Brooks provides the lessons that history has taught us about zombie outbreaks. This is not a list of all zombie attacks throughout history, but a chronicling of the most famous outbreaks, gruesomely illustrated in graphic novel form. From our descendants on the African savannahs to the legions of ancient Rome to the voyages of Francis Drake to the ill-advised experiments of the Soviet army, The Zombie Survival Guide: Recorded Attack, takes the reader on a journey across many anni horribilis and hauntingly reminds us how close the living dead have come to destroying humanity.

What book are you waiting for ?


  1. Looks like a really fun read! Is this a sequel to The Zombie Survival Guide? Here's my pick.

  2. I have been seeing the Vampire Academy book around and I think I want to read it so I am glad that you pointed out it's a book three. Now if I read I can start from the beginning.

  3. Nice Library picks. I still have the books from my last library loot and haven't had time to finish any yet:( Besides, the state of Ohio is planning to cut its public library budget in half. How sad! Fewer new books~

  4. U are soooooooooooooooo funny!!! Blaming others for the books U got!! LOL!! :):):):):):):):)

  5. Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict is on my library list, thanks to Dar, too! Enjoy the books.

  6. I do see some I want to read in there, vampire academy, lace makers, and jane austen :D
    Have fun

  7. I can't wait to see what you think of Lacemakers.

  8. LOL>>> I cracked up when I saw this one; enjoy!

  9. All of your library books look like winners, but those zombies scare me!

  10. I'm going to have to put that zombie books on my queue. Tai loves zombie books.

  11. you had a good trip to the library they all look good. I actually made it this week. I got two Mary Stewarts to read while I sit around relaxing in the mountains.

  12. I read Vampire Academy and enjoyed it -- I hope you do too!

  13. I like the sound of The Zombie Survival Guide!

  14. Yaaaaay, I thought I was losing my touch not being blamed for anything the last little while. Glad to see I'm still on a roll. lol. I think you'll love Confessions. I've got Lacemakers of Glenmara. I really need to read it.

  15. Nice haul Staci! You're goning to enjoy that Austen book!

  16. So pleased to find someone else who likes the Zombie Survial Guide!

    I had this for a past Friday Find - and I am enjoying it very much!

    I am a little late in commenting as the month end is a very busy time for me, but I am catching up, slowly!

    Check out my latest What's on Your Desk Wednesday post!

    And I have new giveaways, too!

    Catch you again, soon!


  17. I'm waiting to read Angel's Game, the latest of Carlos Ruiz Zafon. I'm also waiting for the trade paperback release of A Mercy by Toni Morrison. :)

  18. Ohh, I didn't know about Recorded Attacks! I loved Survival Guide and now this one will be on my "Waiting" list too. :D

  19. Can't wait for your review of Lace Makers, I haven't added it to my tbr list yet.

  20. I enjoy blaming others for my book obsession as well, even though clearly I was addicted before. Everyone just more perpetuates the "problem" and accelerates (times 20) how fast books are added to my TBR list. It's getting ridiculous, I am telling you.

    You got some good looking reads this week! I am posting my LL today, too.

  21. I loved Confessions Of A Jane Austen Addict and can't wait to get the latest in the series! :) You took home some great reads!

  22. You have some winners from the library! I still have Lacemakers in my TBR pile and I can't wait to read that cover. This is why I am limiting the new books that I am getting and cleaning out my bookshelves. I need to read the books that I have patiently waiting!

  23. Aww, thank you :D
    I sure appreciate when you stop by mine too

  24. Nice loot. It's good that you remember where you first saw these books, you know who to blame.:) I never can unless I write them down. I definitely want to read The Lace Makers, I'll watch for your thoughts on it. You did really well reading six books in a week, I'm behind on last weeks library books. Happy reading.
