Library semi-fail

So I hate to admit but my city's library is pretty lame. Selection-wise. They don't have any of the books that we bloggers are talking about. So once a month I feel it's my duty to send in my new release and sometimes not so new but insanely popular book request. Then for the next I watch the emails roll in. Saying they are getting such and such book I requested. They should really hire me or go to the list of book blogs I suppy them with when they order books for the library. It is so embarassing. And then the good books they have they get only 1 copy so the hold list is insanely long that I end up just ordering the thing. But that said, I did find some good books to check out.

I guess I should list them okay starting from the top.
Devoured by Amanda Marrone-Rising high school senior Megan has been haunted by her twin for ten years, but now Remy is trying to warn her about terrible danger surrounding Megan's summer job at an amusement park called the Land of Enchantment.
Angel Time by Anne Rice
A kiss before the Apocalypse & Dancing on the head of a pin : a Remy Chandler novel  by Tom Sniegoski
Storm Glass & Poison Study by Maria V Snyder
Once aWitch by Carolyn MacCullough-Born into a family of witches, seventeen-year-old Tamsin is raised believing that she alone lacks a magical "Talent," but when her beautiful and powerful sister is taken by an age-old rival of the family in an attempt to change the balance of power, Tamsin discovers her true destiny.
Time of the Witches by Anna Myers-Orphaned Drucilla finds a home with the beautiful but troubled Mistress Putnam as accusations of witchcraft start to swirl in Salem Village.
The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan-Through twists and turns of fate, orphaned Mary seeks knowledge of life, love, and especially what lies beyond her walled village and the surrounding forest, where dwell the Unconsecrated, aggressive flesh-eating people who were once dead.
Darkborn by Alison Sinclair
Not Pictured: Fade by Lisa McMann-Using her ability to tap into other people's dreams, eighteen-year-old Janie investigates an alleged sex ring at her high school that involves teachers using the date rape drug on students.
I also got Under the Dome by Stephen King The small town of Chester's Mill, Maine, is faced with a big dilemma when it is mysteriously sealed off by an invisible and completely impenetrable force field. With cars and airplanes exploding on contact, the force field has completely isolated the townspeople from the outside world. Now, Iraq war vet Dale Barbara and a group of the town's more sensible citizens must overcome the tyrannical rule of Big Jim Rennie, a politician bent on controlling everything within the Dome. On audio but my mommie snagged it for her commute to work.  She is the one who turned me on to King as well as Anne Rice.   Which see the new book by her in the picture.  Angel Time.
