It is an incredibly overcast day today so my photo is really lousy, but if I wait for a nicer day I probably won't get around to taking the photo!
Today was library day and I decided to go 'sans' list. I usually have my big tbr notebook with me and make my choices from that but I was feeling like there is no spontaneity to my reading these days so I left the list at home and roamed the library at will. I also made a conscience choice to not take out too many books since my bedside table has about 28 books (that I own) on it waiting to be read.
From the bottom up we have:
Batman - Under the Hood - I am a superhero geek and love Batman.
Blindsighted by Karin Slaughter - Now that I'm caught up with Kathy Reichs, I need to find something to fill it's spot in my reading regime and am going to try this one.
XXXHolic vol. 1 & 2 - my library has an incredibly lousy selection of manga so I take what they have, I've read good things about this one though.
Horns and Wrinkles by Joseph Helgerson - this was a totally blind pick, I've never heard of the author or this book. I was struck by the cover art first then fascinated by the story blurb, a fantasy that takes place along the banks of the Mississippi. I love Southern novels, now throw in fantasy, I couldn't resist.
A Gift of Magic by Lois Duncan - a new favourite author for me, I'm trying to pick up one of her books every time I go to the library.
A Single Shard by Linda Sue Park - a Newbery winner for the Newbery Project
Kensuke's Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo - I stumbled across this author by accident once when I was browsing around amazon.uk and have wanted to read him ever since.
Here's hoping I have some good reading ahead of me!
And in case I don't post again this weekend
