Book Trailers For This Week's Loot:

Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Claire and Marg that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library. If you’d like to participate, just write up your post-feel free to steal the button-and link it using the Mr. Linky any time during the week. And of course check out what other participants are getting from their libraries.

I just recently read The Girl of Fire and Thorns and really enjoyed it. It was perfect but it was a page-turner for me. I really liked The Iron Thorn, too. I read it last year and am waiting for the sequel to come out in February, I think it is.

Then, one of these days I want to read Crossed (my library doesn't have it) and Cinder (which is on my TBR pile).
