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 10, 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!

More holds of mine came through, last week! (Together, of course ::groan::). No complaints, this time, since I had been waiting for a couple of them since forever!




  1. The Help by Kathryn Stockett: I'm reading this one currently, and so far find it true to its promise!
  2. The 13th Hour by Richard Doetsch: The mystery in reverse! I'm not exactly sure when I'll read this, but it should be before the Thursday of next week, since it's due then!
  3. The Friday Night Knitting Club by Kate Jacobs: I'm reading this with some ladies from a Goodreads club. So far, I've heard mixed reviews about this book, and unwittingly fell upon some spoilers. Anyways, I'll be starting this one too next week.
  4. City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare: I read this in one sitting, the day I picked it up. It's such a quick read in spite of the 450-odd pages. I'll be reviewing it during the weekend.
What do you think of any of these books?

Glad you're enjoying The Help - I loved it. The other titles I haven't read.

My loot this week was all holds too....and the pile gets bigger and bigger!
Eva said…
I only read Friday Night Knitting Club, which I'm in the minority camp of not liking too much. But I hope you enjoy it more!
So many good books! Can't wait for your review on The Help. I feel like I'm the only person that hasn't read it yet! The 13th Hour looks freaking awesome too!

I kind of gave up on the library because that's what would happen to me - all my holds would come in at once. Happy reading and keep warm!

I have The Help on my tbr list. Everyone says it's good. The 13th Hour looks interesting. I had a whole pile of books show up from the library this week too so I know what you mean. Happy reading.

Everyone seems to enjoy The Help...I really need to give it a try myself. I've also been planning on reading the Mortal Instrument series but I haven't started it yet. Enjoy your finds ;)
YAY...The Help...awesome read. I have The 13th Hours as an audio but have not listened to it yet - enjoy!

I hope you enjoy The Help as much as I did!
I haven't read any of those, but many people seem to have enjoyed The Help. Hope you do, too!

I liked Friday Night Knitting Club. I didn't think I would. I have its sequel sitting on my shelf.
I'm in the miles long queue for The Help at the library!

I'm glad The Help is living up to its promise. I need to read it this week or next as it's my book club's pick for the week.

I really enjoyed The Help, but I've never felt compelled to pick up the knitting one. Not in real life, nor in fiction, is knitting for me. ;)
Marg said…
I am hoping to read The Help in the next couple of weeks, and I really enjoyed the Cassandra Clare books.

Enjoy your loot!
