In My Mailbox (#7)

Hosted by the lovely Kristi from The Story Siren.

I did it again. I got lost in the library. I now have a total of 29 books checked out. Eeek! Really now...I need some control or someone to keep me in check when I go into the library. The little self check out machine should start saying things like "Have you finished the other 19 you have at home?" or "Rejected! Rejected! Too many checked out when you have plenty at home to read!!!!"

The Luxe by Anna Godberson
She's No Faerie Princess by Christine Warren
Nightseer by Laurell K. Hamilton
Lament by Maggie Stiefvater

Hexbound by Chloe Neill
This Side of the Grave by Jeaniene Frost (Bought)
Paranormalcy by Kiersten White

Never Cry Werewolf by Heather Davis
Numbers by Rachel Ward
Kiss Me Kill Me by Lauren Henderson
Pegasus by Robin McKinley

I, also got The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan. Oh and after I left the library another one of my books came in! One I really wanted, Archangel's Consort by Nalini Singh...I have some time before I have to pick it up, so I'll leave there so I won't be tempted to read it ahead of all the others.

I'm not going to lie, I think the cover for Lament by Maggie Stiefvater is horrible.Its neither attractive or eye catching at all. The other covers are either amazing or nice. I love the cover for Pegasus and The Luxe; I would definitely wear a dress like that, but I don't think I could ever imagine walking in it or breathing for that matter!

I think I need to stop checking out books for a long time and sit back and read the ones I got. I also need to get to reviewing the books I've read. I really wouldn't mind checking out a ton of books if I also returned some books or the equal amount I check out. Instead of piling my stack of books so high, that I can't keep up.

Hope I don't hit a reading speed bump and fall out of reading for a week or two. That would be absolutely horrible! Esp. with all these books I have.

So, what did you get this week?

Wow, 29 books?! I didn't even know they let you check out that many:) You have some great ones there, I adore Jeaniene Frost and Chloe Neill, and Paranormalcy I thought was fabulous. Enjoy all your great library finds!

Good luck with your 29 books! I think they'll keep you going for quite some time!

I have to agree with you about the cover of Lament. There is another version of it available (which I have) and which I think is a lot prettier!

Lovely blog! I think it must have one of the prettiest layouts I have seen!

29 books ....when I renewed my library card they gave me a paper that stated you can have up to 50 checked out at one time.. I thought who in the world would ever have that many out at once.. I don't have 29 like you but I think I have 10 checked out right now lol... and picked up 2 more today... he he

Thank goodness I don't work at the library....
