Library Loot (#2)

Library Loot meme Library Loot is a weekly meme hosted by Eva and Marg that encourage bloggers to talk about what books they’ve gotten from their library during the week. Anyone can participate any time during the week, so feel free to write up your own post and link it using Eva’s (or Marg’s) Mr Linky!

This has been a particularly boring week, the most boring week I’ve had since the previous semester, and as a bonus I’ve got three tests next week. So I’m feeling lousy and anxious by turns, and I’m distracting myself with lovely, lovely library books.

I’ve been seeing Tunnels on bookstore shelves for a while but wasn’t sure if I wanted to buy it– thank goodness for libraries. Savvy has been reviewed on a few blogs this year and it looks really good; Hunger has returned from whoever checked it out before I could get to it, and it’s even bigger than Gone is; the rest I found lurking on the shelves and they look good, too. (Horns & Wrinkles has lovely illustrations, as well!)

The Eagle of the Ninth by Rosemary Sutcliff, The Lantern Bearers by Rosemary Sutcliff, Horns & Wrinkles by Joseph Helgerson.

I’ve started reading The Eagle of the Ninth, and it’s pretty typical 1950’s historical YA fiction. Good, but a bit bland compared to more modern historical YA fiction. I’m hoping it’ll get better soon. Update: It did indeed get better! Much, much better, yay!
