I also have an ILL request in for Shadows in Bronze by Lindsey Davis.
There should be enough there to keep me going really shouldn't there!


  1. Wow - that's a lot of books!! Do you end up buying any of the books that you really like?

    I really wish we had a library where I live, but the town is too small to justify one I guess. There is one in a nearby town (about 10 minutes) that we could join for $100 a year. My hubby said it would probably be cheaper!

    Hope you had a great New Year!

  2. Dime Store Magic is a very good book, I read it first and unfortunately it spoiled me on her other books. I liked Industrial Magic, too, but all the other ones in that series bored me.

    The Grave books are wonderful. Of course, I just love Harris.

    I love your lists. We have a library in town, but it doesn't stock very many books like these. Our library is odd like that. Of course, I have so many I could open one of my own, except I don't want to share!

    Have you read either of Joshilyn Jackson's books? If not, you really need to put in a request for those, they are wonderful.

  3. Happy New Year!

    The only one off the list I've read is Twilight Tower by Karen Harper. IIRC (it has been a while) it was very good; first in a series I think. I read the first four. Very good. Elizabeth was portrayed as a persson I could relate to.

    Daughter has read Rebel Angels by Libba Bray & likes it alot. She also said she hope Bray coninues with the series.

    That's quite an impressive list BTW!

  4. Daphne, I don't often buy the books that I have already read because I don't often reread. Last year I only reread one book and that was one that I read in high school. Luckily my library is free and II could get most things I want there!! Using my library has saved me a fortune over the last couple of years!

    Cherry Tea, I have Joshilyn Jackson on my TBR list but I haven't got to them yet.

    Bookwormom, The Twylight Tower is the third book in the series. I have read the first two and thought it was okay.

  5. Quite a variety of books - I seem to be all about romance, but sometimes getting away from it is a good thing. Recently started getting into Balogh and have Sabrina Jeffries in my tbr - have you read a lot of her stuff?

    Happy New Year Marg :)

  6. You are so lucky to have a library that can get all that for you, I don't think the entire system my library is on could come up with a third of your list.


  7. Stacy, I have read a fair amount of Mary Balogh (14 books) but only 1 by Sabrina Jeffries. I will definitely be reading more from her though - I really enjoyed the one that I did read!

    Alice, I definitely am very lucky and grateful!

  8. Okay, do you ever have phobias of not getting your books back on time? I used to rack up the late fees :( I would paralyzed with fear if I had that many books out from the library AND I have a tendency to forget where I left something.


  9. I don't often get late fees, but I am a bit paranoid about returning them on time. I have a spreadsheet that tells me what date what books are due back on and whether they can be extended or not and that then dictates what book I read next to a certain degree.
