Wow you had an awesome week :-)
I've read Richelle Mead's Frostbite and it was fantastic, I'd go with it if you've already read Vampire Academy. Happy Reading!

Lynne said...

I read LOOKING FOR SALVATION AT THE DAIRY QUEEN and liked it. Haven't read any of the others.

Maree said...

Good week! I haven't read any of those, but I do like the look of Fragile Eternity.
Happy reading!

I'm afraid I can't be much help with the ones you brought home from the library, but I am interested in what you think of The Reliable Wife when you've finished. I have it on my Wish List. Enjoy your books!

Looking For Salvation at the Dairy Queen is cute. It's a nice easy read, nothing too deep but pretty. Enjoy, It looks like you have a lot of good stuff to choose from!

Maybe so, but those are ten awesome looking books! :) I see a couple I'd love to help you with.

Nely said...

Oh nice stash from the library. I haven't read any of them though. I have been meaning to read The Reliable Wife so I'll be keeping an eye out for your review. Have a great week :D

Mondays: Musings/Whereabouts

Sandra said...

Wow, you read a ot in a week. I've read and enjoyed The Welsh Girl. I'll go read your review. I haven't read any of your library books. When I have to choose like that I go with the most lyrical title. In this case I'd say start with A Certain Slant of Light. I'll bookmark your blog (I can't follow, my list is full) and watch for your reviews.

You remind me of myself when I head into the library. I always come out with so many books! Also stopped by to let you know, I have an award waiting for you at my blog here's the link, and have a good week.

Kristen said...

You sure are spoiled for choices next aren't you? Haven't read any so can't help you choose though, sorry!

Danni said...

I've heard Fragile Eternity is wonderful. I hope you enjoy! :)

Vickie said...

ALL TOGETHER DEAD - Charlaine Harris, BOCD in the car

Purse book: Not happy with DIME MUSEUM MURDERS - Daniel Stashower, so will choose something else when I get home today

Bedside book: BLOODY GOOD - Georgia Evans, excellent bedtime reading of vampires invading England for Germany during WWII

Jo-Jo said...

You certainly had quite the week! I'm listening to Two for the Dough right now and loving it. I'm hoping to read Looking for Salvation at the Dairy Queen...I just love the title and the cover of that one!

Diane said...

Jess...The Reliable Wife sounds good; hope you enjoy it.

BTW: I'm very sorry but I cannot commit to the Molly Marx group read at this time; hope you understand.

Mary said...

Wow, I don't think my library will even let me take out 10 books at a time : )

I read The Next Thing on My List a few years ago. It was an enjoyable, light read.

I read The Lost Recipe For Happiness a few months ago and really liked it!

Good luck with your decision and have a great week!

Kim said...

I can't wait to read your reviews! I read Looking For Salvation at the Dairy Queen last summer and I really enjoyed it. If you like southern fiction,you should like it. I think it you would find it a great summer read.

The Lost Recipe for Happiness is really good. Here's my review:

I also read great reviews about A Hopeless Romantic. It's on my TBR list.
