May 12 Library Visit Review

I finished these 4:

The Ghost Writer
by Philip Roth - As I said in an earlier post, the book called The Ghost Writer on my TBR list is actually written by John Harwood. I got the wrong book. :-) But it had great reviews on Amazon so I decided to give it a try. And try I did, but I couldn't get into it.

Consider Lily by Ann Dayton and May Vanderbilt - LOVED it! It had a few flaws, but overall it was great. 4/5

London Holiday by Richard Peck - Couldn't get into this one either.

Knitalong - Celebrating the Tradition of Knitting Together by Larisa Brown and Martin John Brown - I love everything about knitting....I love reading about it, listening to podcasts about it, talking to others about it, thinking about it, and of course actually knitting. :-) This book was just "ok" for me though. 3/5

It's always SO much better to get hit or miss books from the library, isn't it?! I hate and loathe to actually buy a book at a bookstore and then not like it. But checking them out from the library and not loving them, I'm ok with that :)

I think I'm going to steal your idea soon, about doing a wrap-up of library books. I've read about 10 or 12 books and want to comment on some - some of them from my own shelves and some from the library. I like this idea, so I hope you don't mind me swiping it :)

Have a great day and Happy Reading!
