My Library Haul (6)

I'm picking up more books than I can read right now, but I can't help myself! This is my latest haul:

I may end up just browsing the Dr Manhattan scenes in this book. I saw the film Watchmen a few weeks ago and was rather taken with His Blueness.

The Two Pearls of Wisdom by Alison Goodman just been shortlisted for the Victorian Premier's Literary Award. Congratulations Alison! This title is also known overseas as Eon, or Dragoneye Reborn.

Evermore by Alison Noel has received heaps of blogger attention and seems to be the author's first foray into paranormal fiction.

A older title, Wicked Lovely is the first book in an urban fantasy series that is apparently mandatory to read in order. I'm not a huge fan of UF, but I'll give it a go.

Speaking of older titles, Animal Farm is a classic from 1945. I was scarred for life as a child when watching the cartoon version that is so not for kids. I was horrified by the thought that my Clag glue could be made of ponies.

I'm jumping on the bandwagon! My local vid store hasn't got the series yet so I thought I'd start with the books.

In other news, Sharon at Sharon Loves Books and Cats mentioned me in her Random Saturday post and said some lovely things about my reviews. In thanks here's a Lolcat, from one cat lover to another:


  1. I love Wicked Lovely! I hope you enjoy! :)

    I really need to read Watchmen.

  2. I absolutely loved Wicked Lovely - I hope you enjoy it. I'm also realising today I need to read Evermore.

  3. I didn't know Eon was also titled The Two Pearls of Wisdom! That's neat. I need to read Animal Farm one day too. :) Enjoy!

    - Alex

  4. lmao love the lolcats! True story: I had a copy of Evermore and it mysteriously disappeared. I've looked all over and I can't find it anywhere!

  5. Love the cat :)
    I've read the Wicked Lovely series - I thought it was going to be a trilogy but the third book doesn't really 'end'.
    Just finished Dead Until Dark - not what I thought - and still not sure if that's a good thing or not :)

  6. all good picks. i especially like the animal farm - such a classic. welcome to the sookie world!

  7. The movie version of Watchmen did an amazing job of following the story but still managed to miss out on so much of the soul.

  8. Just stumbled upon your blog from Presenting Lenore, and I'm looking forward to your thoughts on these! I was not a fan of Dead Until Dark or Evermore, although I know both are hugely popular. I love Melissa Marr's books, though!
