"Before you, Bella, my life was like a moonless night. Very dark, but there were stars, points of light and reason. ...And then you shot across my sky like a meteor. Suddenly everything was on fire; there was brilliancy, there was beauty. When you were gone, when the meteor had fallen over the horizon, everything went black. Nothing had changed, but my eyes were blinded by the light. I couldn’t see the stars anymore. And there was no more reason, for anything."

Library Loot (3)

***Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Eva and Marg that encourages readers to share the goodies that they picked up at their libraries each week!***

These posts are normally on Wednesday, but with having to work late, I am doing mine now so I don't miss it like I did last week!

Here's what I got this week:



Once A Witch - Carolyn MacCullough: I've read some good reviews about this one and I'm loving the cover!

Sea Change - Aimee Friedman: You want to know why I picked this book up? Because the guy on the front cover reminded me of Robert Pattison. I didn't even know what it was about until I got it home!

Kiss Me Kill Me - Lauren Henderson: I'm pretty sure I heard about this one a blog a long time ago, and I just happened to find it browsing through the stacks.

The Patron Saint of Butterflies - Cecilia Galante: I'm still not sure what this one is all about but I liked the butterfly on the cover.

The Knife of Never Letting Go - Patrick Ness: This book is getting a lot of hype and I wanted to give it a try. Plus it seems like something I wouldn't normally read and it is the year to try new things!

Betrayals - Lili St. Crow: I have the first one to read too. I've heard great great things about these books.

Hunger - Michael Grant: Sequel to Gone. I hate this cover even more!

Generation Dead - Daniel Waters: These books are supposed to be amazing. I figured they were at least worth checking out.

Secret Society - Tom Dolby: I just fell in love with the cover and it sounds really good too!

Dairy Queen, The Off Season, Front and Center - Catherine Gilbert Murdock: I've already started this trilogy and it is really cute and funny.

Keeping my fingers crossed that you love the Knife of Never Letting Go! I picked up the second one yesterday - it's a really hard series to put down.

Eva said...

What a fun picture! :) It only took me a couple of hours to read The Knife of Never Letting Go-it's a really quick read, despite its length.

I have the Knife of NLG out right now. I just saw Front and Center at the book store so I was thinking of getting it (I read the first two). Let us know what you think.

I think I'm going to start the Knife of Never Letting Go Tonight. I just finished Front and Center last night Beth and put up my review. I really really enjoyed it!
