Checking Out the Library

Checking Out the LibraryThis week’s loot includes my first ever book club book: Winter Garden by Kristin Hannah. I’m already about 1/3 of the way through the book and I’m not sure how I feel about it. I have a sneaking suspicion that it may not be my cup of tea. I’m continuing my audio reading of Anne Rice’s books. I’m almost finished with Interview with a Vampire. So moving on to Queen of the Damned is the next step in that journey.

The newest book to me is Stars Above, which is a collection of short stories from The Lunar Chronicles. I haven’t read any of the short stories, so this will be an interesting book for me to read. Hopefully, it helps to clear up some of the story or at least create better clarification about what I read in the series. I’ll admit, the initial books were lacking in some of the needed background and I think it was a mistake to have written Fairest so late into the series. That book was like the Rosetta stone for the series and it explained a lot more about the world view as well to the how and why everything ended up where it did in Cinder.


Here’s this week’s library loot:

  • Winter Garden by Kristin Hannah
  • Stars Above by Marissa Meyer
  • Queen of the Damned by Anne Rice

What did you pick up from the library this week? Or what are you planning on putting on hold? Leave me a comment and let me know!

About Kristine

As an aspiring author, avid bookworm, fitness fanatic and dedicated mother, there just aren't enough hours in the day. I write or post about things I'm passionate about and spend my time trying to make the most of every day. Life may be a tough journey, but I have my ruby red slippers and am content on skipping along this yellow brick road until the end of the line.

  1. I’ve actually never read any of the Anne Rice books and have always been curious. I might try them out on audio too. Have a great week!

    • I just finished Interview With A Vampire and I’m a bit perplexed. In The Vampire Lestat, he claims Louis is lying about some of his story and there’s an iconic scene from the book and movie that doesn’t match up with what Lestat says in the beginning of his book. It’s interesting to see two different sides of the story. Even though Lestat doesn’t recall much of his time with Louis.
