Not only was this the month of the San Francisco Public Library book sale at Fort Mason center but I also held a mini contest on FaceBook for friends to guess how many books I read. Yeah, because I am just that impressed with myself. I feel a little shame maybe.
Maybe. A little.
Books Read: 46 (+7 unfinished)
Books Bought: 49
Books from Library: 33
Books Loaned/Given: 1
Money spent (approximately): $81 Well…..SFPL Big Book Sale, what can I say? Also $25 spent at Amazon. Whoops.
Favorite Books: Gah. I read so many. So many! Let’s see.
D.U.F.F. (Designated Ugly Fat Friend) by Kody Keplinger. All right, I know, I know. The title is offensive and awful but I enjoyed the book. There was a lot of sex in it for a YA novel which was both fascinating (because that’s not normal, let me tell you. Or maybe I’ve just been reading the wrong YA books) and giggle-inducing. Because I’m like a pre-pubescent.
Unseen Academicals by Terry Pratchett which I finally, FINALLY read. It did seem to have a little repetiion which I know I shouldn’t blame on the Alzheimer’s but…well, I dunno. I enjoyed the Patrician and the wizards and Nutt. Plus now I just got his newest book–Tiffany Aching! Yey. So obviously letting it go stale and than finally reading it the month the new one came out wasn’t such a bad plan.
Size 12 Is Not Fat, Size 14 Is Not Fat Either and Big Boned by Meg Cabot. I was re-reading these obviously since I, of course, have already read everything by Cabot. But these were just as delightful the second (ok, maybe third) time around. Unlike the Queen of Babble trilogy–that I also re-read this month–and which were not so great anymore.
Wicked Appetite by Janet Evanovich. It’s a new series by Evanovich–who writes the Stephanie Plum ones. They’ve got Diesel from the Plum books and are about the seven deadly sins and him tracking users. There’s also romance. And a cat! Annnnd a monkey. Also cupcakes!
Millennium Snow vol. 1 by Bisco Hatori. Sigh. I am annoyed that she stopped writing these to work on Ouran High School Host Club even though I love those. But now I love these too and am sad not to know how they end.
Meagan Meade’s Guide to the McGowen Boys by Kate Brian. Bought this at the sale even though I’d already read it from the library. Still totally liked it.
Juliet, Naked by Nick Hornby. Not AS great as I was hoping it to be but still pretty good. I think I need to re-read The Actor and the Housewife by Shannon Hale because as stories of famous people becoming friends with ordinary people go that one was killer.
Least Favorite Books: Oh.My.Gods. by Tera Lynn Childs. Should have known better from the title. She’s So Dead To Us by Kieran Scott. Was hopeful it would be about zombies! It wasn’t. Never Slow Dance With A Zombie by E. Van Lowe. Was actually about zombies. Wasn’t actually good. All this talk of zombies…I should be working on my own book.
