This Library Loot is actually from a couple of trips. It’s mostly young adult novels and one short novel because I still have longer books hanging around from earlier loots. Also, I have Sir Walter Scott’s The Talisman out from the university library and it keeps getting passed over in favor of the books with imminent public library due dates.
So here is my loot!
Tepper Isn’t Going Out by Calvin Trillin – I heard about this book via Gaskella. It sounds like a light, fun read about a guy who likes to read the paper in his parked car and because it is New York City and his parking spots happen to be desirable, this simple action causes consternation and admiration from fellow NYC denizens.
The White Darkness by Geraldine McCaughrean – The teenage protagonist has obsessed with the Antarctic as is her uncle, but when he takes her on a journey to that continent, it is a tale about survival. This was also a recommendation from a book blog – The Bluestocking Society.
The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson – I have seen rave reviews for this one everywhere. A seventeen-year-old girl wakes from a yearlong coma and slowly has to piece together her memories and happened after the accident that put her in the coma.
Enna Burning by Shannon Hale – This is the sequel to Hale’s Goose Girl which I enjoyed. This follows the path of a supporting character from the first novel.
