Dear Book Reader,

I hope that everyone has had a great week!  Catching up on some reading tonight and have a lot of books that I’m going to need to be reading in the next weeks.  Here’s a look at what I’ve still got out from the library!  Of course, a bunch of books on my TBR list were sitting on the YA shelf, so I couldn’t help but pick up all of them, with the hope I’ll eventually get to read them.

Well, I did get one book returned, and I know I’ll be returning another book next week after I write the review.  But all of the new books…I need more time to read, less time doing anything else.

What did you get from the library this week?  Leave it in the comments!

Check It Out Fridays #11

Dear Book Reader,

Well, I’m getting more books than I have time to read right now and it’s kind of overwhelming!  I’m really having to pick and choose what I read.  I’m also trying to be good about not checking out “first timers”, but failing at that…miserably.  I seriously need a couple of days when nothing needs to be done and I can curl up on the couch or in a chair and just read.  My library’s summer reading program started almost two weeks ago, so I am trying to read more instead of doing other things.  Like finding more books on Goodreads.

First Time Check Out:

  • Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins (2nd copy)
  • Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor
  • Zoe Letting Go by Nora Price
  • Newtown: An American Tragedy by Matthew Lysiak
  • The Here And Now by Ann Brashares
  • Great by Sara Benincasa
  • The Treatment by Suzanne Young
  • Biggest Flirts by Jennifer Echols

Checked Out Again:

  • Liv, Forever by Amy Talkington
  • Alice In Zombieland by Gena Showalter
  • The Sound Of Letting Go by Stasia Ward Kehoe
  • Something Real by Heather Demetrios
  • Prisoner of Night And Fog by Anne Blankman (accidentally returned early)
  • Insanity by Susan Vaught

Renewed Again:

  • The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
  • The Other Countess by Eve Edwards
  • The Vicious Deep by Zoraida Cordova
  • The Savage Blue by Zoraida Cordova
  • The Ward by Jordana Frankel
  • Starry Nights by Daisy Whitney
  • Crewel by Gennifer Albin
  • Altered by Gennifer Albin
  • Her Dark Curiosity by Megan Shepherd

Returned For Keeps:

  • Don’t Look Back by Jennifer L. Armentrout
  • A Death-Struck Year by Makiia Lucier

So. Many. Books.  Not enough hours!  Two got returned this week for library keeps, which is good.  One I had to return because someone had it on hold, but I’m sure I’ll have it checked out again before we know it.  A hundred points for anyone who can figure out what book it was.

Read On,

Liz

Dear Book Reader,

Here we are again, at another Friday.  I can’t believe this is the tenth one of these posts I’ve made.  The list doesn’t seem to be getting smaller, does it?  I’ve been doing so well about not checking out many new books each week, but of course a bunch of books on my TBR list were sitting on the new YA shelf or on the holds shelf this week.  I don’t have much time to read right now either!  Here’s a look at what’s new and renewed for this week!

Dear Book Reader,

Wow, it’s been a long week and not much time left to read.  I don’t enjoy weeks like that, but I know I’ll have a few more coming up, sadly.  I am so excited about some of the books that came in this week because they’re on my TBR list for the Debut Author Challenge!  I’ve also decided to seperate the Checked Out & Renewed list…just because I want to.  🙂

I have no idea when I’m going to have time to read all of these.  Have you noticed which ones I keep putting up here?  Some of these books I’ve had for months already and should really read them and get them returned for good.  Any of these you’d like to see reviews for?  What did you bring home from your library this week?

Read On,

Liz

Check It Out Fridays #8

Dear Book Reader,

It’s been awhile since I’ve published one of these posts!  I still have tons of books checked out from the library, but I haven’t been making as many new book check outs lately.  I have a number of “on order” or “in cataloging” books on hold though.  I’m still sitting at maximum holds on my card for books I still haven’t gotten around to reading, so I’ve been putting stuff on hold with my mom’s card.  Too many books, too little time!

First Time Check Out:

  • Asunder by Jodi Meadows
  • Infinite by Jodi Meadows
  • The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
  • Zane and the Hurricane: A Story of Katrina by Rodman Philbrick
  • Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins

 

Checked Out/Renewed Again…and Again:

  • Me Since You by Laura Wiess
  • Hidden Girl: The True Story of a Modern-Day Child Slave by Shyima Hall
  • A Snicker of Magic by Natalie Lloyd
  • Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi
  • Three: An Article 5 Novel by Kristen Simmons
  • Panic by Lauren Oliver (Not sure if I have both copies…again).
  • A Death-Struck Year by Makiia Lucier
  • The Evolution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin (I think I have two copies of this book checked out)

Have you read any of these books?  I’m patiently (not) waiting for the one copy of Incarnate to be returned so that I can start reading this trilogy!

Read On,

Liz

 

Check It Out Fridays #7

It has been a really crazy week and I’ve been totally out of routine.  From being out of town, meetings, errands and work, I’ve had no time for blogging.  Oh, and thanks to Comcast, I was without cable and internet for five days.  Let me just say it was a blessing to be able to get someone out here earlier this week or I’d still be without these services!  I’ll stop my complaining about Comcast now.

I’ve had very little time for reading this week, but I’ve had time to return and get books back from the library!  I finally got the first season of Downton Abbey as well.  One episode of Season 4 and I was hooked (I’d have liked to see the rest of Season 4 on demand, but oh….I couldn’t.  Thanks Comcast. (I’m done complaining about them, promise.)).

Onto the books!

First Time Check Out:

  • The Ward by Jordana Frankel
  • Her Dark Curiosity by Megan Shepherd

 

Checked Out/Renewed Again…and Again:

  • The Vicious Deep by Zoraida Cordova
  • The Savage Blue by Zoraida Cordova
  • Ruins by Dan Wells
  • The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter
  • Altered by Gennifer Albin
  • Crewel by Gennifer Albin
  • The Other Countess by Eve Edwards
  • Above World by Jenn Resse
  • Mirage by Jenn Reese
  • Eve by Anna Carey
  • Once by Anna Carey
  • Rise by Anna Carey
  • Wake by Amanda Hocking
  • The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
  • Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter
  • Something Real by Heather Demetrios
  • The Sound of Letting Go by Stasia Ward Kehoe
  • Liv, Forever by Amy Talkington
  • Starry Nights by Daisy Whitney
  • Insanity by Susan Vaught
  • Panic by Lauren Oliver

I’m really hoping that next week results in a back to routine type living.  While everything that’s been going on this week has been great, and even insightful in ways, I feel so out of the loop of life.

Liz

Check It Out Fridays #6

Well, for the most part this has been a good week.  Except that in some crazy storm yesterday the cable and internet has been knocked out.  And my Nook HD+ reset to factory settings.  So I’m sitting at the library trying to work on my Nook and it’s frustrating.  It’s like starting all over again and having to get everything just the way it was.  I’ve only had the thing for 8 months, but even still, there’s work to do.  I’m not enjoying reinstalling everything.

With that out of the way, here’s what I’ve checked out or renewed this week.

First Time Check Out:

  • Nil by Lynne Matson
  • Fates by Lanie Bross
  • Pivot Point by Kasie West
  • Split Second by Kasie West
  • School of Charm by Lisa Ann Scott
  • Incarnate by Jodi Medows
