I cannot seem to visit a library and return empty-handed, this is what ended up on my library shelf in the past few weeks…
Aya of Yopougon #2-6: Aya #1 was on my shelves already. I decided I wanted to continue the series and ordered the other ones from libraries around the province. I think these were published as 2 books in English: Aya: Life in Yop City & Aya: Love in Yop City. I read these over the Christmas holidays and will hopefully get around to posting about them soon.
Blue is the Warmest Colour: I came across this while browsing. A GLBT graphic novel, which I decided to pick up on a whim (and because I desperately need to read more diversely). Also read this during the Christmas holidays. Again, will hopefully review this soon.
Liesl & Po: Again, a random find. Having read two of Lauren Oliver’s YA books (with mixed results) I wanted to see how her writing for younger children is.
Three Pickled Herrings: Random find after random find, this seemed like it might be similar to Flavia de Luce for children? Of course, looking at it like that I can only be disappointed…
The New Religious Intolerance: I was going to read this for Nonfiction November but then my hold came in very late. Saw this mentioned on Amy’s blog, and having heard about Martha Nussbaum before but never having read her, I thought I’d give her a try. Have not picked this up yet though.
The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight: Another random find. Picked this up at the tiny English Children’s Books section (same for Three Pickled Herrings). And when I say tiny I mean tiny: there are about 20 books there. I remember seeing this mentioned at a fellow Dutch blogger (Paper Riot) and thought I could give it a go myself.
The Wee Free Men: I read and enjoyed A Hat Full of Sky in November and thought it might be good to read the previous title in the Tiffany Aching series as well. Still have to pick this up though.
Ruby Red: I see Kerstin Gier’s books mentioned everywhere in Dutch blogging circles. So I wanted to see whether I’d enjoy her books myself. Again, have yet to read this.
The Night Fairy: Basically, I picked up quite a few of the available English Children’s Books titles. This was another one. I quite enjoyed it. Review to follow soon.
Any thoughts you’d like to share on my library loot? Did you pick up anything at the library recently?
Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Claire from The Captive Reader and Silly Little Mischief that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library. If you’d like to participate, just write up your post-feel free to steal the button-and link it using the Mr. Linky any time during the week. And of course check out what other participants are getting from their libraries.
