Checked Out

I hadn’t been to the library in a couple of months so the other day I thought it was time to break my library ban. You know I love the library but being that I have so many unread books I try to cut my library visits every so often so I’ll read more from my stacks.

Anyway I had to pick up some books for upcoming book groups and of course I also picked up a couple of other books I couldn’t leave behind on the shelf. Here’s what I got:

  • Fieldwork by Mischa Berlinski. A crime novel set in Thailand.
  • Pronto by Elmore Leonard. This isn’t really my type of crime novel but it’s for a book group and I’m willing to give it a go. I actually haven’t read anything by Leonard so I’m curious but I’m not getting my hopes up.
  • The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot. Am I the last person to read this book? I am so excited I found this one.
  • The Storm by Margriet de Moor. A novel of two sisters set amidst the backdrop of a natural disaster in The Netherlands.

A bit of variety and I like that. Let me know if you’ve read any of these and what you thought. Of course wouldn’t you know it that today I also got a notice that I have a couple of more holds to pick up. It always works that way doesn’t it?

Have a wonderful weekend everyone! I’m going to try and enjoy mine as much as I can as life is about to get a lot more hectic for me as I’m going back to full time work. It’s been a while. Saturday I’ll post a journal prompt so hope you’ll check it out and I have an author guest post and book giveaway coming up in the next two posts so stay tuned!
