In mood for a vacation | Weekly Snapshot

Yet another week has gone by with no end in sight for the pandemic. Being able to distinguish weeks became a challenge months ago, so no surprises there. But the weather is getting colder and winter is coming (hopefully not Martin's winter - we had enough of that this year already). I used to love winter, I used to look forward to it. But for the past few years, it has tended to be a very gloomy season. I'm usually just looking forward to it ending. So, this year, it's going to be harder to get through the season, especially since we are all still mostly at home. Mind you, I don't mind the restrictions as they do have a useful purpose, but wish more people followed them well and that we had done a better job when the weather was warmer to keep the virus at bay so that it didn't have to last this long. But that argument probably won't stick anyways, as many countries are now facing second waves. At the end of the day, we really need a vaccine but I hope that isn…

Library Loot - Feb 03, 2010



Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Eva @ A Striped Armchair and Marg @ Reading Adventures 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'm guilty, yet again! Of going off to the library before reading the books I borrowed previously! And I'm off this weekend to pick more, since 3 holds just came through yesterday! We really should have had 48 hours in a day rather than the measly 24 hours, which just swim away way too fast! Apparently, we sleep 8 hours, and work 8 hours, then where are the remaining 8 hours?

I digress!

Anyways, this is what I picked last weekend:



  1. Precious by Sapphire. I was actually looking for Push, but my library only had the movie-tie-in edition. Does any one know if there's a difference between the two? I had previously read the first chapter, so I couldn't spot any differences. I hope it's the same as the original!
  2. White Oleander by Janet Fitch. I'm reading this book with Cheryl @ The Books I Read, for a Pen-Pal read in a Goodreads group. So I'm pretty excited about starting this!
What do you think of any of these books?

I think the movie tie-in edition is the same as Push - they're just trying to market of the movie's publicity. I've read both of those books and enjoyed them!
I have not read Precious, but did read White Oleander. I thought it was good, but depressing :(

Both sad ones that I hear are good ones. Keep tissues near by :) and happy reading :)

I haven't read either of these - sounds as if they might be tearjerkers. Hope you enjoy them.:)

Kathy, thanks for clearing that one!

Diane, I did hear it's depressing, so I want to balance it with light reads before and after it! Hope it works! :)

Juju, I guess I better!

Michelle, can't wait to hear what you think of it!

Cat, thanks! :)
