Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Alessandra and Eva 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!I spotted The Ten-Cent Plague on the shelf at the library and thought Tai and I both might be interested seeing we like comic books. I was very excited to see A Reliable Wife on the shelf. I had it on hold but I was towards the end of a very long queue. I first saw A Reliable Wife mention on Omnivoracious but Staci got this one last week. Dying Inside is for Tai. It was recommended on Omnivoracious. I've been waiting for A Homemade Life since Molly first mentioned it on her blog, Orangette. I love her blog. It's not just about recipes. It's about food and life.
I finished Handle With Care. Jodi Picoult was one of those writers I would read no question. Sadly this will be the last one of her books I'll read. Too formulatic, Jodi. She's gotten so comfortable with this pattern that it's not gripping. I remember My Sister's Keeper. It was page turner. I connected to the characters. This time, eh, I could care less. I know the path and I'm not enjoying the journey. Sorry Jodi, you used the same formula one time too many.
I also read Saving Juliet this week. It was cute YA. I found myself excited to read see how Mimi's story ended. I enjoyed it. Lighthearted and a satifying and predictable ending.
