I had to run to the library this week because a book I requested was in and they only give you a few days to pick up. The book I got was:

I went back to the library this week because I had to return Second Life by S.J Watson. I was only able to borrow it for a week and sadly I wasn’t able to finish it. I am hoping that once its taken off the new release section I can borrow it again.

I also ended up returning the other items I borrowed as well. I enjoyed listening to Josh Groban’s cd and I started to read One Past Midnight by Jessica Shirvington and stopped because I think this will be one of those books that I will want to own so hopefully I will get it for Christmas.

This week I went on a children’s book spree and picked up the following books:


These are all picture books.


These are the chapter books.
I borrowed Rise of the Guardians on dvd to watch this weekend.

As you can see I was on a William Joyce kick this week. Michael actually likes the books and author so I just wanted to refresh his memory of the books.

You’re Never Weird on the Internet (almost) by Felicia Day was one of those books that I wanted to get at BEA and never got. I almost picked it up a few times when I was at chapters when it was on sale but didn’t so when I spotted it in the new release section I decided that it was now or never so I grabbed it.

I also borrowed two cds:

  • First Kiss by Kid Rock
  • Under My Skin by Avril Lavigne

So this is my haul this week. What do you think?

I have decided that I think I am going to make an attempt to get back into going to my local library on a weekly bases. I know I should have continued this when September rolled around and the weather was still nicer and I honestly think once the snow comes it might not happen as much.

I realized that apart from my coffee dates with Jennifer and my monthly breakfast dates with Tina that I am pretty much in all day apart from going to get the mail at the community box on my own I should say I do get out with hockey, errands and groceries etc.. I hope you know what I mean, do you?

Anyways for now I did go to the library and walked around and I managed to pick up:

This is Josh Groban’s newest cd and I was thrilled to see that my library had it on hand so I picked it up to listen too.
I also spotted One Past Midnight by Jessica Shirvington in the new YA section so I also picked this up to read. I have it for 3 weeks so I am hoping to get to this within that time frame.
In the 7 day borrow section I spotted Second Life by S.J Watson. I have been anxiously waiting to get this one and numerous times I have picked it up at chapters but always put it back so I am happy to get this and I have seven days to read this before I have to bring it back.

Do you borrow books from the library? What about music? What do you like to borrow from your library?

Genres: Comics & Graphic Novels, General, Young Adult

At long last, Courtney Crumrin Tales returns... in full color! Though the Witches and Warlocks of Hillsborough keep to themselves under Ravenna’s Law, there are outliers who are a danger to others. The Anti-Sorcery Society, headed by mortal Horace Crisp, seeks to destroy these individuals, and Aloysius Crumrin, an eager young man, offers his assistance–keeping his magical ancestry to himself, of course. But he doesn't count on Alice Crisp, Horace’s tenacious daughter, accompanying him on missions, or on trusting her with his secret… or on falling in love. Which proves more dangerous than anything when Horace becomes his enemy…

On the run from the Coven with her former teacher Calpurnia, Courtney Crumrin is quickly learning just how sinister the witches and warlocks of Hillsborough can be - but she never thought she'd see the day when Uncle Aloysius turned on her as well. It's a lot harder to fight a battle when the only family you care about is against you, and Courtney's only salvation may lie in the Twilight Kingdom - and away from the mortal world. But Aloysius won't give up his niece so easily, even if he has to fight the night creatures to do it!

Originally this was suppose to be the final book in the Courtney Crumrin series but I see they did another volume which I am just about to read.

Like the previous books it picks right up where volume 5 ended which I think is really nice. I am sure they could have combined all the comics into one volume or even two but that is just my opinion.

This will be basically a mini review because I don’t want to give to much away. This was a quick read and I really enjoyed this one. Its nice to see how much Courtney has grown from the first volume. She is a cute and spunky girl who takes nothing from no one.

Courtney is reunited with her former teacher Calpurnia and they are on the run from the Coven. It seems like everyone has turned on Courtney even her uncle. It appears like Courtney knows too much and they are trying to get to her and make her forget everything she knows but will she allow that?

In this volume Courtney dominates and lets nothing stand in her way.

This was a fast pace read.

 

Library Loot February PT 1 Edition

Library Loot is a weekly event that is co-hosted by Marg at The Adventures of a Intrepid Reader and Claire at The Captive Reader.

The Library Loot encourages bloggers to share the books they have 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 that is posted on Marg at The Adventures of a Intrepid Reader and Claire at The Captive Reader any time during the week.

On Sunday we went to the library because Michael had a scheduled library event ie story time with his favorite story teller. It was all about bugs and this lady who does it always has the cutest crafts for the kids to do afterwards. This is Michael’s bug:

While he was in storytime I figured I would look around and this is the product of me looking around and saying to myself that I really didn’t need to borrow any more books for myself and I think I did pretty good considering.


For Michael I borrowed:
-L’autre Guili Lapin by Mo Willems
-Ne laissez pas le pigeon conduire le bus! by Mo Willems
-Guili Lapin by Mo Willems
-Pirate a babord by Sophie Morissette
-Il pleut du pop corn by Alice Low

-mes premiers j’aime a lire book
-Caramel et le haricot magique
-Caramel apprend a nager

-2 moi je lis books
-mini loup fait la fete

-What’s your sound, hound the hound? by Mo Willems
-Cat the Cat, who is that? by Mo Willems
-I am going!
-I love my new Toy!
-Today I will fly!
-Elephants cannot dance
-I am invited to a party
-Are you ready to play outside?
-There is a bird on your head
-Watch me throw the ball

-The pigeon finds a hot dog
-City dog, Country frog
-Leonardo the terrible monster
-naked mole rat gets dressed
-time to say please
-knuffle bunny a cautinary tale

For myself I borrowed:
-Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce
-Hush by Eishes Chayil
-Night school: The Weirn Books 1 and 2 by Svetlana Chmakova

Hmm you are probably saying to yourselves, Gee Cindy borrowed alot of Mo Willems I wonder why? Well apparently he will be coming to my neck of the woods February 20th and guess who is planning on going? Yup Michael and I.


I know he was at BEA last year and I didn’t get to see him for some reason or other so I spoke to Michael about it because when he was younger we did read alot of Mo’s books and Michael did remember them so he wants to go to hear him read and to ask him a question or two. (Psst I will try and record him if he does ask a question)

This is what I borrowed this week, what about you?

Library Loot January Edition

Library Loot is a weekly event that is co-hosted by Marg at The Adventures of a Intrepid Reader and Claire at The Captive Reader.

The Library Loot encourages bloggers to share the books they have 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 that is posted on Marg at The Adventures of a Intrepid Reader and Claire at The Captive Reader any time during the week. And of course check out what other participants are getting from their libraries!

I have decided to take part in this on a monthly bases only. I usually don’t go to the library weekly until the summer when Michael is taking part in the summer reading program which has weekly events planned. With that being said we do go at least once a month because of a planned library event or its a ped day.

This is actually two library hauls. Michael was still on vacation last week and we had books that were due back so we brought them back and took at one set of books and this week I had to register him from spring break activities so I managed to look around.

This is what library books are in our house for January.

The first library visit:
– 10 Fold Origami by Peter Engel
– Paper Pandas and jumping Frogs by Florence Temko
(This is what Michael wanted to take out because he loves to do origami.)

-Simple Times: Crafts for poor People by Amy Sedaris. (I actually saw her on the Joy Behar show and was laughing at the interview. Amy is so funny so I had to pick this up to check it out.)

-Amelia Rules: What Makes you Happy by Jimmy Gownley
-Amelia Rules: #1 The Whole World’s Crazy
-Amelia Rules: #3 Superheroes
-Amulet The Stonekeeper #1
-Amulet The Stonekeeper’s Curse #2
(I was looking for some graphic novels to read as they are quick and easy reads.)

-The Good neighbors- Kind #3 by Holly Black and Ted Naifeh
(I have been anxiously awaiting this one. I enjoyed the first two.)

The second haul brought this in:
-Crazy Beautiful by Lauren Baratz-Logsted
(This has been on my wishlist and its finally come in.)

-Amelia Rules #5 The Tweenage Guide to Not Being Unpopular
(This was a hold book i had to pick up)

-Blue Plate Special by Michelle D. Kwasney
(Another book that was placed on hold finally came in)

-Don’t touch that Toad and Other Strange things Adults tell you by Catherine Rondina and Illustrated by Keven Sylverster
(Thought Michael would enjoy this)

-Cloaked in Red by Vivian Vande Velde
(Love the cover and it sounds kinda cute)

-The Christmas Journey by Donna Van Liere
(was recommended that i read)

-Wii Monopoly
(We love borrowing Wii games. Its a great way to play before you go out and buy)

I am probably not going to get to read them all but I really hope that I can get to some of them. Thankfully I have a little more then a month to read them. You will be able to see reviews of these books throughout the year as I have decided all library books will be saved and used at future dates.
