Batch of Library Books 7/22/10

This should probably be called the Holy $#!+ edition, because I got 10 books at the library today. All 10 decided to come to me from my waiting list at the same time. This should be interesting considering I still have 7 floating around my house.
Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver. I've been looking forward to this one for awhile--so excited! It is sort of a 'Groundhog Day' tale where she lives the day of her death over and over again.
The Cinderella Society by Kay Cassidy. I read a review of this one on another book blog and added it to my list immediately. Seems like a classic outsider joins popular group and all is not as it seems story.
City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare. I am so, so happy this one came in because I just finished City of Bones and I wasn't really sure how I was going to last the wait until getting the next one.
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Seth Grahame-Smith. I'll probably read this one before the copy of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter that I got last week.

Wake by Lisa McMann. I've heard nothing but good things about this one and it seems like a short read, so I'm excited.
Crank by Ellen Hopkins. I love how this is based on her daughter. I'm sure this will be a heavy, but thought provoking read.

Num8ers by Rachel Ward. I'm pretty sure this is one where she predicts deaths somehow. I don't really remember, but I do know that it was on my Goodreads list and it was on hold for awhile at the library!
Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick. I'm pretty sure I'll be the last person on the planet to read this one. I'm on the lookout for Patch.'s Harry Potter Should Have Died: Controversial Views from the #1 Fan Site by Emerson Spartz and Ben Schoen. I know I'm way behind on this one as well, but eh, what can I say. I'm hoping this one is funny.
Harry, A History by Melissa Anelli. I've heard very good things about this one (mainly from Sandy, Hi Sandy!). I always saw it in the store and almost picked it up, but I'll give it a shot from the library!

Phew, that was intense. Have you read any of these? Any suggestions on which ones I should tackle first? Thanks.


  1. Wow, the only one I've read out of all those is Crank. It's a pretty good book. Definitely a heavy read, but worth reading. All those books look great!

  2. Hit City of Ashes first; you know you want to. Then do something different before you hit Hush, Hush. They have the same sort of vibe, so it might make each less exciting if you read them back to back.

  3. Meg, glad you liked Crank! Look for my reviews later and I'll let you know which ones I liked.

    Morelockian, I sooo want to read City of Ashes, but the library books I checked out before today are making me feel bad. So, we shall see. I'm in the middle of an intense book, so I may read something light in between chapters. Thanks for the tip about Hush, Hush! I'll make sure to separate them some :)

  4. I loved Before I Fall and The Cinderella Society, so I can't wait to hear what you think of those!

  5. Awww thanks for the shout out! Just saw it....sorry a little late I know!


Comment away, my friends. I love to chat with you guys. :)
