In this meme, hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren, we share the books we've received, bought or taken out from the library.
The Bookish Type (you will hear more about it in the near future!) These were the first ARCs I had actually ever physically held in my hands...I was *so* excited. Thank you to Houghton Mifflin Books!
Amy & Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson (from Jessica at Confessions of a Bookaholic — thanks very much!)
From the library:
I had kind of a massive library haul this week. I'm not sure what I was thinking, ordering all of these at once...I seem to have a tendency to go a little overboard and then be really surprised when they all come in at the same time and suddenly I have these huge stacks of books in my room that keep toppling over.
These were all books I thought I could use for my "Read Outside Your Comfort Zone" Challenge —a few graphic novels, a few with male protagonists, a couple middle-grades, and a couple light fluffy ones. I have no idea how I am going to get through all of these before they need to be returned!
Princess for Hire by Lindsey Leavitt
The Rise of Renegade X by Chelsea Campbell
The Cinderella Society by Kay Cassidy
The Professor's Daughter by Joann Sfar and Emmanuel Guibert (didn't order this one but I saw it while I was there and thought it looked a bit different from most graphic novels)
The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick (again, didn't order this one but when I took a look at the description, I went, 'Male protagonist, partly graphic novel, middle-grade...check!' and took it out)
The Shifter by Janice Hardy
Rapunzel's Revenge by Shannon & Dean Hale, and Nathan Hale (I've already reviewed it here)
Freefall by Mindi Scott
Fables: Legends in Exile by Bill Willingham
And these are just more that I'd ordered (well, the Kit Pearson one I picked up while I was there...never heard of it before!)
Forget-Her-Nots by Amy Brecount-White
Tagged by Mara Purnhagen
A Perfect Gentle Knight by Kit Pearson
Mistwood by Leah Cypess
Cat Among the Pigeons by Julia Golding (I didn't realize this was the 2nd book in a series when I ordered it, but apparently it is)
Nightshade by Andrea Cremer
And of course as always I checked out the library discards (gotta love those) and as usual could not resist the 25 cent prices:
Hannah & the Spindle Whorl by Carol Anne Shaw - this one has a local setting and features the Salish culture, so I figured I'd give it a try.
The Pinhoe Egg by Diana Wynne Jones - oddly enough, my library seems to keep putting Diana Wynne Jones books in their discards. No idea why, but it means more for my collection!
And now you have seen a very good example of my library addiction :D
