Showcase Sunday is a weekly meme created by Vicky over at Books, Biscuits & Tea.
Vicky created this meme so bloggers have the opportunity to share with fellow bloggers what they recently picked up this week. This particular meme I have participated in once before. And I just love it.
Loans from the Library:
Some of you may know by now I tend to take on too many library books at once and then I am left scrambling to read everything before they are due back. This time is no different, however, it was not my own ill-timing. Instead, I placed four books on ‘Reserve’ from the library’s website. I made sure to spread them out far enough from each other that I would not have too many to read at once. Clearly, the library had other plans and so this week I received three separate emails on three different days letting me know my books were available for pick-up. On the bright side I have three weeks to read them.
City of Bones is a repeat loan, as the first time I borrowed the novel from the library I had a week to read what I borrowed before my intercontinental trip. Before I left for my trip I returned all the books I borrowed including City of Bones. Hopefully, this time I will have the opportunity to read it.
I had seen Anna and the French Kiss on some of my fellow blogger’s walls, but it wasn’t until a particularly exciting review on the sequel: Lola and the Boy Next Door, did I decide now was the time to read Perkins’ books. I am actually excited to read more realistic young adult. Apparently there is such a thing as too much supernaturally-themed stories.
Hex Hall was brought to my attention after I read Obsidian by Armentrout, but for one reason or another, I have yet to read this series. Now is as good a time to begin, I reckon 🙂
From Fellow Readers:
Only one book is on my list this week from a fellow reader that I work with. She has loaned me her copy and since I am changing jobs by the end of the week this will be the first book I read and finish so I can return it by week’s end. Said book would be no other than:
I had read Hunger Games a few months before the movie came out and then I found out they were making a movie and I decided not to continue the series until the movies were all out. Apparently I have a weak constitution, because it only took a little convincing on my co-worker’s behalf to get me to agree to read Catching Fire. It didn’t hurt that she had a copy I could borrow!
Well that’s all I have for this week’s books on loan. See you next week! I am hopeful about my week’s reading progress. I will try and keep a daily commentary on said “progress.”
