Library Loot: January 7-13

Eva over at A Striped Armchair and Sarah from Behold, the thing that reads came up with this great idea: posting what you got at the library each week. I might not go every single week--and I might sometimes go twice!--but I'll definitely be participating. See the first Library Loot post to join in!

I happened to go to the library yesterday and picked up these books (and a movie):

Always going left to right, top row:
All We Know of Heaven
by Jacquelyn Mitchard
Because I thought it looked interesting

Identical by Ellen Hopkins
I've really liked some, not all, of the author's other books

Kingston by Starlight by Christopher John Farley
Back to that nautical/piratical stuff again, big surprise!

Sharpe's Company (DVD, Sharpe series #3)
Because I loveeee Regency-era stories and while Sharpe's character--and sort of the movie series in general--has yet to compare with that of Mr. Hornblower, they are good enough to continue watching

The Smile by Donna Jo Napoli
I felt like reading this one. I've really liked some of Ms. Napoli's works, and others I haven't, so I'm not sure what to expect

You Know Where to Find Me by Rachel Cohn
This has been receiving rave reviews, so I finally got my hands on a copy


  1. I really want to read Identical and You Know Where to Find Me. Rachel Cohn is awesome and I haven't read anything but a short story by Ellen Hopkins...though I do want too!


  2. The covers you've brought home are art. Pure art.
