Library Loot 8
I regularly visit three libraries within my borough, but every once in awhile I'll make the trek out to libraries far away to pick up a book I really want to to read. Today, I saw that Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer was in stock at one of these far-away libraries and made the (20 minute) journey out there. Except I couldn't find it on the shelf, the helpful librarian couldn't find it on the shelf and Joshua was having a mini-meltdown because I wouldn't let him grab books off the shelves and fling them here, there and everywhere. So I left without the book I really wanted, and ended up with these instead. I'm only slightly disappointed.
1. Castle in the Air by Diana Wynne Jones The sequel to Howl's Moving Castle! Finally!
2. The Sisters Grimm: The Fairy Tale Detectives by Michael Buckley I read about this one someone's blog. Maybe it was yours?
3. The Bermudez Triangle by Maureen Johnson The *only* Maureen Johnson book in our library system. Do you guys follow her on twitter? You should, she's hilarious.
4. The Post-Birthday World by Lionel Shriver I didn't finish WNTTAK, but what I did read of it was good...
5. Queen of Babble Gets Hitched by Meg Cabot YAY! Meg Cabot!
6. Fairest by Gail Carson Levine Picked up on a whim. Set in the same world as Ella Enchanted.
