Library Lovin' {aka In My Mailbox}

This is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren.  Its a great way to show what you won/bought/borrowed each week {or so}.  I might write one each week, but most likely every couple/few weeks as, while I love to read, I have many other things that take up my time and at the moment am not winning or being given any books for review {this is not my choice... I would love to make the excuse of "needing" to read a good book so I can review it!}.

I've loved my local library for decades, but I haven't really taken advantage of it in the past few years.  Its a shame, really.  The library was a little safe haven of sorts for me when I was younger, and as I got older and had jobs that paid me decently, the local Borders took its place.  Alas, Borders is gone, so its back to the library for me {yes, I know Barnes & Noble is out there as well as other lovely bookstore, but Borders was my favorite}.  I went to my local library today after going to Half Price Books yesterday, and I now have 6 books I need to read... well, 5 books and a graphic novel...

Bright Young Things by Anna Godbersen
Dearly, Departed by Lia Habel
The Faerie Ring by Kiki Hamilton

Austenland by Shannon Hale
The Iron King by Julie Kagawa
Vampire Academy: The Graphic Novel by Richelle Mead (Author), Emma Vieceli (Illustrator), Leigh Dragoon (Adapter)

The nice thing about borrowing books from the library?  I have to spend more time reading that doing other frivolous things... I think I can do that ;-)


I joined NetGalley this last week, and I actually won a copy of Tomorrow Land by Marni Mancusi!  So I'll be picking that up to read via the good ol' Kindle in the next few days...

I haven't read Dearly, Departed yet nor The Faerie Ring but both are on my list of what I want to read. LOVED The Iron King and a coworker really liked Austenland. You got a great mailbox this week!
