Fruits Basket volume 17 by Natsuki Takaya
I have the absolute best librarians at my library. Volume 17 of Fruits Basket wasn't in the system at all, and so one of the librarians let me borrow her personal copy (she also says that this is a very important volume). How cool is that! So a big thnk you goes out to her and all the awesome librarians everywhere.

This year I hit the library sale a couple of hours earlier then last time. I found some really interesting mysteries, but sadly they either didn't have very many YA or they hadn't brought them out yet. So this year I got mainly thrillers and mystery books, but I was lucky enough to find some authors that were recommended for those who like Agatha Christie's work (and just about all the books I got were hardbacks). I'm really excited about all the books I found and cannot wait to try the ones I've never read before.

I hope y'all have had a really great week in books too.


  1. My daughter loves Fruit Basket! Great haul!
    Happy Reading!

  2. Good golly, that's a lot of books! Glad to see you had better luck at the library sale than I did. =)

    Ooh, xxxHolic and Fruits Basket! You must must must let me borrow those after you read them. It was indeed very cool of the librarian to lend you her copy.
    Let me know what you think of the other mangas. I'll have to give them a try if they're good. ^_^

  3. AWESOME books this week! I've read You Are So Cursed a long time ago, but can't remember if it's good. XD Anyway, happy reading!

  4. Library sale! Oh my gosh how wonderful! :) Have a great week!

  5. A fanstastic mailbox! They all look very interesting. Happy reading :)
