Stacked (76): Library Madness

Happy Sunday, all! I am in a bit of a hurry this morning. I usually try to schedule my Stacked post the night before it goes up but I spent most of yesterday at the LA Teen Book Fest and then passed out from allergy meds after I got home. The book fest went really well and I think the blogger panel went well, too. People actually showed up, which surprised me. I hope to have a more detailed recap of the event soon.

Since I am short on time, no Goodreads links today. I hit up the library twice this week and got a ton of books. They had so many new books that I really want to read and I could not resist.


Shadows by Robin McKinley - I have not read any of Robin's books before but I have a friend who loves her and I wanted to give this one a go.

More Than This by Patrick Ness - No idea what this book is about but the over is really cool and I like Patrick Ness.

The Weight of Water by Sarah Crossan - This book is by an Aussie author and is written in verse. I never read verse novels but again, this cover is pretty awesome, and Mandee from VeganYA Nerds really liked it.

Counting by 7s by Holly Goldberg Sloan - Another great cover (see - good covers work!). I like Sloan and am looking forward to this one.

The Beginning of Everything by Robin Schneider - I have heard really good things about this book.

In the Shadow of Blackbirds by Cat Winters - I have been wanting to read this one and just spotted it at my library. Looks very moody and gothic.

Love in the Time of Global Warming by Francesca Lia Block- Another one that I have been wanting to read because of the cover. I have not read any book by Block before but this looks interesting and it's short.

Beware a Scot's Revenge by Sabrina Jeffries - Love Jeffries and am always looking for some new historical romance. Does anyone else notice that the romance section at most libraries suck? They just seem so disorganized and usually small. This makes me sad.

Bought & Received

Cursed by SJ Harper - I went to Mysterious Galaxy RB last week and stumbled upon a signing for this book. Never one to turn down an author signing or an urban fantasy book down, I sat in on the signing. I have already read it and really liked it. Story involves Sirens, werewolves and vampires. Fun!

Possession by JR Ward - OMG my awesome friend A managed to get me a copy of this recently. I totally squee-ed since I love Ward and this series. Super excited about this one.

Never Fall Down by Patricia McCormick - The lone book I got yesterday at Teen Book Fest. Patricia was at the event and I was really struck by how intelligent and passionate she was. This is the story of a man who survived the genocide in Cambodia and his experiences during that time. It's not the kind of book I usually but, after listening to Patricia, I really want to read it.

That's all I have for you today. As you can see, the library was awesome this week. They really are the best and I encourage you all to visit your local library. I am off now to buy balloons for a birthday party for a 2-year-old. Have a great day, everyone!
