  4. Kitchen looks so good. I love the cover of Soulless, but I'm not sure the book is for me. I can't wait to see what you think.

  5. One of the things I love the most about cozies are the covers! They even LOOK cozy!!!

  6. What, nooo, poor me, blamed, oh have mercy cruel world ;)

    On another note, a less dramatic one. Yay I so hope you will like it, it was so weird and I love weird

  7. I got to blame you for 2 books this time!
    Great loot! Souless looks great. I think it's already on my tbr list!

  8. Plateful of Murders sounds like a good one. I've missed checking in because you always have books I haven't heard of. And I don't think I've read the quilter's book either. Not too late for me to get it in before Christmas.

  9. I'll be reading "The Lost Quilter" with my book club next month. Maybe I should read that holiday quilter story. Looks like you are into murder this week.

  10. Lots of murder at your house this week. Is there something we should worry about?

  11. I always laugh when I see your library loot.

  12. Those are some fantastic books! I really want to read Soulless. Now how are you going to find the time to read all of them? :)

  13. You have some interesting reading to do, Staci! I am going to try to read more books from the library this next year so I will be doing some Library Loots myself.

  14. I loved Kitchen! I read in January for last year's Japanese Lit Challenge. :) And I see you're a mystery fan too!

  15. Yea Library! I re-checked out my Hunger Games and currently readin that, and just picked up And Only to Deceive by Alexander. I may save that though for 2010, haven't decided yet.

  16. I have a few of Yoshimoto's books on my shelves, but I've yet to read any of them. I really need to though, if just to say I've read a book by a Banana! Why do I love her name so?!!

  17. I have read most of the Chiaverini books but I think that I still have a couple to go. Must reborrow the one that I have to read next.
