**New** Weekly Meme: Library Thursday Blog Hop!

The Library Thursday Blog Hop is a new weekly meme hosted by Lah @ LazyGirl Reads.

Each week, I will list which books I've picked up, put on hold, skimmed through at the library. It's a great way to see what other bloggers are browsing through while we are waiting for new titles to come out. And it's a blog hop! So you can make some more bloggy friends. YAY!

Grab a button and sign up with your post on the linky below so others can check out what you're checkin' out! (see what I did there?)

My books this week:

The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks
Okay so I got this one because of the Sparks challenge I'm doing. People keep telling me I won't like his novels and I'd like to find out for myself! 

The Willoughbys by Lois Lowry
I was looking for The Giver for the Dystopia Challenge and I came across this one. I got it just because it reminds me of The Royal Tennenbaums and A Series of Unfortunate Events.

Her Royal Spyness Rhys Bowen
I have major judging-the-book-by-it's-cover syndrome and the cover is way too cute. The narration is also awesome. Should be a winner!

Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll 
For the Dusty Reads challenge!

Lost by Alice Lichtenstein
I couldn't resist. I also read the first chapter and it appears to be a good read!

I don't normally get 5 books from the library but I had major amounts of fine that I paid off today. SO I went crazy. What'd you get from the library this week?!

  1. I love your ideas, so I may have to actually take a trip to my local library. It's not the best, but for this, I may have to go. :)

  2. Oh just wondering, does it only apply to books we get from the library? Because I rarely get my books from the library.

  3. @Selena haha! you rule.

    @Nadea I think I tried to write this whole long thing on your page but it got deleted. It is actually books from the library only but I'd love for you to participate in whatever you can anyway :)

  5. This year one of my goals it to use the library instead of buying so many books. This may give me a kick in you know where, to follow through, with that goal.

  6. When you say put on hold.. Could that be like a repeat of books you've borrowed (long ago!) and still haven't cleared off you TBR pile?

  10. I love this blog hop! I am always getting books from the library or at least putting some on hold. We have a revolving library so it's easy to get books you want. Thanks for starting this one!

  11. This is great! I have been sick and unable to get out, but have been looking online and put some on hold. I think Hubby is stopping for me later to pick up my list :) I'll do my post then add my link. Have fun with your selections!
