I have a co-dependent relationship with my library.

So yeah, basically I justify my weakness with checking books out at the library, because they are free. Why do I feel guilty then? I'm not quite sure. I walked out of the office yesterday with my loot and was trying to sneak to the elevators just in time to get caught by a co-worker. Yes, I'm a nerd and I love books. Mkay?

Now that that's all out in the open - here's the loot I brought home!
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (Had this one on hold & can't wait to start it this weekend!)
True Colors by Kristin Hannah (I'm a fan of Kristin Hannah and this one is about 3 sisters, so of course, I'm intrigued already!)
Delicate Edible Birds and Other Stories by Lauren Groff (This is one I wouldn't normally pick up, but it's not very big and I'm kinda curious.)
Hold Love Strong by Matthew Aaron Goodman (I'm a little nervous about this one. It was a complete impulse-shelf-pick-up and I haven't heard anything about it, though the ratings on Goodreads look fairly high. Thoughts anyone?)
And then earlier this week, I picked up my hold of Nicholas Spark's latest The Last Song. (Yippee! Every fall he publishes a new book and its something I look forward to every year!)

I'm super excited and can't wait to get started on Hunger Games! It's this months book club selection (chosen by Mwah) and I keep hearing nothing but amazing things about it. And then I'm also dying to crack open Nicholas Spark's latest, because he is truly my favorite author and I will read anything he puts out. Looks like I know what I'll be doing this weekend!!

Has anyone read any of these titles and have any thoughts to share on them?

LMAO! I have the same weekness. We need help :) For me...when it rains, it pours. I check out more then I can ever read. lol.

I loved True Colors. I think you'll enjoy it!

And I just finished The Last Song last night. Get out your tissues. I cried like a friggin baby. He's predictable, but I still love his stuff and look forward to it every September!!

I just brought Hunger Games home from the library myself.

I totally agree - I always check out too many books at a time, start several of them at the same time; its like my eyes get bigger head, my free time?? Anyways, you'll LOVE True Colors - I read it back in Sept or Oct and couldn't put it down!!
