Library Loot (1)


Library Loot is a weekly meme hosted by Eva at A Striped Armchair!
Bloggers are encouraged to share the books they've checked out at the library and give a little insight into why they chose them :).

Looked fun so I decided to participate! Oh and I made my own Library Loot picture too. If you decide to participate, feel free to snag it. I think it came out pretty snazzy!

Let's get to it!
***

I picked up Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher today because I have heard really great things about it! I know it is a sad story at the core, but so many people have given it stellar reviews that I really felt the need to read it myself.


I also picked up Wings by Aprilynne Pike today. It was funny actually because the second book in this series was on someone's Waiting on Wednesday post today and it made me remember I wanted to read it! Lucky for me it was in stock, and I happily took it home.




Lastly, I picked up Tithe: A Modern Faerie Tale by Holly Black today. This book has been in my sights for a really long time, but I always managed to forget to get it when I was at the library. Today it was peeking at me from the "Most Popular" section and I squealed with glee when I picked it up. I hope it's great!








That's it for today!

I have more books coming on hold for me, but I am trying to keep it to a four book at a time maximum, so that way it doesn't happen where I flip when they are close to being due. I know we've all had that problem at some point ;).

Thanks for reading!

  6. Hi Jessica!
    Your loot looks FANTASTIC!
    You'll have to let us know what you think of Thirteen Reasons Why when you get to it. I've heard great things about it too.

    Holly Black writes some really great dark fantasy. I read Tithe a few years ago and really enjoyed it.

    Wings is another book that I've read stellar reviews for.

    Enjoy your loot!

  9. I read Tithe a couple of years ago and liked it! 13 Reasons Why was a one-sitting read for me. :D
