Normally I do Teaser Tuesday and the Library Loot on Wednesday of every week, but this week I just didn't feel up to doing Library Loot. In fact I was in bed at the very early time of 9.30 three nights in a row during the week. Part of the reason for that is that I am trying to change my eating habits, and so I think my body was going into shock at the fact that it hadn't had any chocolate, or normal Coke or anything like that for a few days. Once I got through those early nights I actually felt pretty good so we will have to see how we go from now on.
Anyway, it has been a pretty interesting week library wise this week. I found something out. They actually DO have an upper limit when it comes to the number of items out. Who knew? And how did I find this out? By reaching that upper limit of course! I have had a whole heap of items that I have had on hold come in so my library list looks very scary again, but it will get back under control soon. (Hah! Who am I trying to kid?).
So the books that I picked up from the library this week were:
Frantic by Katherine Howell - I am supposed to have read this already for OzMystery Readers but it didn't come in for ages.
What the Dead Know by Laura Lippman - another book of the month for OzMystery Readers. Luckily I have read the next book already otherwise I would be in danger of striking out completely!
Skeletons at the Feast by Chris Bohjalian - HF, set in WWII. Exactly my kind of read.
The Dark Rose by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles - I read the first book in this series a while ago and really enjoyed it. I had borrowed this previously but had to return it because I could not renew it, so now I have it out again to hopefully read this time.
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins - lots of buzz around for this book so I thought I would find out for myself.
First Comes Marriage by Mary Balogh - I do enjoy Mary Balogh's writing, and this is the first in her latest series.
Lords of the Bow by Conn Iggulden - Another book I have had out before.
Death at La Fenice by Donna Leon - Donna Leon is one of those authors that I have been meaning to read for ages, so I finally requested the first book in her mystery series.
