Batch of Library Books 8/22/10

It has been awhile (actually, exactly one month) since I’ve shared my library books with you all and I know I missed a couple, but you got reviews of most of them, so not too bad. You know the drill by now, so here we go!
Lucy by Laurence Gonzales. Looks intense and I’ve heard some really good things about this one.
City of Glass by Cassandra Clare. You all know my feelings on these books. I just want to know what happens!
Fade by Lisa McMann. I enjoyed the first, so I’m really looking forward to this one!
Flawless by Sara Shepard. Pretty Little Liars--it’s a guilty pleasure. Plus, I have my suspicions as to who A is and I want to read the books to see if I am anywhere close. That is, if they are keeping to the same storyline. We shall see.
Stalker Girl by Rosemary Graham. Super excited about this one. I love the cover. So much.
Pledged: The Secret Life of Sororities by Alexandra Robbins. By now, you probably know that I was in a sorority in college. I just want to see how this book compares with my experiences (which were great). I’m also planning on having a Greek-life themed week sometime in September.
Girl Parts by John Cusick. I’ve been looking forward to this one ever since I started reading the reviews on other blogs. 
Okay, so I’m going to add in the school books I bought, since I didn’t actually receive anything fun enough to warrant a legit In My Mailbox post for the week.
Writing and Reporting News: A Coaching Method by Carole Rich. So, I definitely bought the international edition because it was $70 (yes, SEVENTY) cheaper. *sigh*
Media Ethics: Cases and Moral Reasoning by Clifford G. Christians, etc. Pretty self explanatory.
Basics of Design Layout & Typography for Beginners by Lisa Graham. Another one for my Desktop Publishing class that I’m excited about.
News Values: Ideas for an Information Age by Jack Fuller. Meh, we’ll see. 
There you have it! Have you read any of these? Any suggestions on a potential order to read them in? Thanks a million.


  1. Great library haul! Loved Fade and Girl Parts.

  2. That's a whole lot of great books! I finished the PLL series about a week's a guilty pleasure of mine too.

    My IMM this week is here.

  3. Wowza lots of books. I think youll enjoy the MIS. It's dang good.

  4. I love reading your blog!
    Good luck with Media Ethics! (Especially if you have Hallock!) That class kicked my butt.

    Thanks so much, Sarah! I have Claussen, so we'll see how it goes. :)

    Lavendar--glad you liked them, I think I will as well.

    Tara, I'll slowly finish the PLL series. It seems everyone is reading them now (because of the show) and it takes forever to get them at the library.

    Cleverly--Looking forward to it :)


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