That’s pretty much what I thought when I saw that I know suddenly have Dragonflight by Anne Mcaffrey waiting under my reservations at the library.
For those that don’t know why I had this reaction, perhaps refer to this.
It seems as though I was terribly wrong about that librarian. Sigh. If I remembered what she looked like, I would make an effort to be extra nice and compliant with her. But, to the librarian that was ever so annoying on that day, I apologise. You are back up there with the super-librarian respect level. Possibly making the Top 10. (I don’t actually have one of those lists… don’t worry, doubting readers )
To see what else I have on reserve, there’s a screenshot to the left. Dragonflight is highlighted. Just because I was bored. It made me hip, like bad ass.
I also finished Unearthly. It was average, kind of typical YA fantasy. It didn’t really stand out for me, although I don’t like novels that are half set at a high school. (Mostly because they’re always American high schools, and I don’t understand half of how the system of their schooling works.) The characters to me seemed flat, I couldn’t make myself believe that they could be a real person. Oh, and in my last post when I said there was no sequel on the horizon for Cynthia Hand, I was wrong. Book 2, the sequel of Unearthly is going to be called Hallowed, which is to be expected in 2012. Even though I found Unearthly kind of average, I’ll most likely read the sequel when it’s out and about.
Clockwork Angel I enjoyed a lot more, though it’s really disconcerting reading books like Before I Die or Fire. C’mon, make the link between the three. It’s half the reason BID freaked me out. But Clockwork, I think I will enjoy the Infernal Devices more than the Mortal Instruments. I certainly liked Clockwork Angel more. Even with it’s almost cliff hanger ending. The sequel, Clockwork Prince is expected for a September ‘11 release.
I haven’t been reading much of Promise of the Wolves, but I think I will tonight. Whilst at the library, I picked up The Iron King by Julie Kagawa. I’ve been waiting for so long for my library to get the series, and they did! Hooray!
So soon to be arriving is Iron Daughter and Iron Queen. Unfortunately, no one told the library of the kind of-not-really-prequel-type-story-other-book-in-the-middle-of-the-series, Winter’s Passage. I may need to notify them so that situation can be fixed.
It seems that the library went on a mass book buying spree, so it’s freshly stocked with YA fantasy a-plenty.
…in other news, this post has taken me 2 hours to finish. I’ve been doing other things, obviously, but I found that a bit shocking.
