Library Loot!

Only a couple of pick ups from the library this week, which is really helping at keeping those totals of books checked out under control.

The books I picked up were:

Beguilement by Lois McMaster Bujold - the first book in the Sharing Knife series

The Dreaming Place by Charles de Lint - it's been ages since I read a Newford book.

Calamity Jane by Kathleen Bacus - this book was recommended on a list that I am on as a book that people will like if they like the Stephanie Plum series of books by Janet Evanovich. I could use a laugh right about now, so I will give this one a go.

The big news this week is the book that I took back to the library tonight. I was originally challenged to read It by Stephen King by the awesome girls over at Book Smugglers. When it came to deadline time, I still had a lot of book left to go, so I wrote about my experience reading the book and then put it down with every intention of picking it up again. Fast forward 8 weeks and I can finally take the book off of my currently reading list because I finished last night! Go me!

I am planning to add a few paragraphs and then post my guest post here as a review shortly!

  1. Can't wait to see your final thoughts!

  2. I read IT by King a long time ago and enjoyed it. The movie is also good, if you can overlook some cheesy-ness!

  3. I don't read much contemporary fiction but really enjoyed Calamity Jayne. I picked it up after it was a finalist in Romantic Times' American Title contest (where you vote for the winner). It's hilarious, as are the later volumes in the series.

  4. I can't wait to see what you think of IT!

  5. I'm curious what you'll think of Calamity Jane. If it's anything like the Plum series I'll have to pick it up too.

  6. I've only read one King book and that was Insomnia. Not my usual genre, but it was good. I hope you enjoy your books.

  7. Congrats on finishing It! I really enjoyed The Dreaming Place, and I love the title Beguilement. :)

  8. Glad to hear you finally finished 'It'! I really should pull a Charles de Lint book off my shelves soon. Happy reading!
