About meI'm a(n)... 34 year old, animal lover, atheist, bookworm, bore, dork, gemini, girl, heterosexual, ISTJ, liberal, library page, loner, old maid, smartass, social phobe, vegetarian/vegan, and all-around weirdo.

About my libraryRATINGS (for books & CDs):

1/5 stars = Didn't like & donated/sold (CDs: 0%: sucked; used to own)

2/5 stars = Not for me, but I've kept it anyway, whether to complete a series or because I like the author, etc. (CDs: 40% - 0%: there's maybe 1 track I like on it)

3/5 stars = It's OK (CDs: 60% - 41%: skip through [more than] half the tracks and it's OK)

4/5 stars = I liked it, but . . . (1 or 2 little things that bugged me) (CDs: 80% - 61%: some skipping required)

5/5 stars = I loved it (I'm pretty forgiving with juvenile books, so you'll probably see a lot of them with 5 stars.) (CDs: 100% - 81%: most of the tracks are good)

TAGS (for books):

Mysteries and thrillers I've lumped into the "suspense" category, just to make it easier for me. Same with childrens and teens: lumped into "juvenile." Ditto with occult, paranormal, urban fantasy, etc. (into "horror"), and novellas (into "short stories").

UPDATES:

3/18/2014 - I'm slowly adding old reviews of books I've read in the past (generally before 2003). No plans on reviewing currents reads, though. Like I mentioned below: too little time. Star-ratings are good enough for me. :)

10/16/2010 — Changed my library from "private" to "public" since LT has added privacy options to books. (knock on wood!)

9/13/2010 — [work in progress] I'm hoping to consolidate all my online catalogs, instead of having everything scattered here, on MyFilmz, and on RateYourMusic. So I'm (slowly) starting to add my movie and music collection to LT.

10/31/2009 — In the spirit of Halloween, I'm dumping my ongoing challenges (Dewey Decimal, Newbery, and A-Z Author/Book) so I can focus on my Paranormal 999 Challenge. Happy Scare Day! :)

8/18/2009 — [work in progress] Another LT project for moi: Scan covers of books without 'em. (Count: 80 naked books--eeps!)

6/7/2008 — My library is now private. I'll make it public again once LT creates privacy features.

2/7/2008 — [still a work in progress] I'm adding year tags to the books I've finished reading (starting in 2001), just to get an idea of how many books I read per year. However, several of these books are rereads/skim-throughs (mainly the juvenile books), so it's not entirely accurate.

1/27/08 — I no longer review books. Too many books; so little time to review them. :)

Happy 8th Thingaversary! You're one of the fairly few who's been here even longer than me. I hope you're treating yourself to some excellent purchases in celebration.
Hi, thanks for the post. Glad you like the library - can't get too many books or too much music or horror!!! I'm slowly importing all my various collections from different systems and databases. LibraryThing is the first system where I can easily get everything catalogued in one place. Literally thousands of other magazines and movies to be imported over the next year(s). I also post up capsule reviews of most of the trashy horror movies I watch on http://kvlt-kvltvre.blogspot.co.uk/ Feel free to have a look. Cheers.
Go ahead and try the 13 challenge. You can make it as easy or as challenging as you want.
I think it's a combination of the big hair, the scary muscles, the yellow top that so would not stay in place during vigorous exercise, the "I boil children in a cauldron to make weight-loss potions" facial expression and the witch-like finger positioning to match. Not that women in general don't give me nightmares already. :P
Wow, I'm pretty sure the cover for Bottoms Up! is going to give me nightmares...
Hmm. You're a self-described atheist, bookworm, dork, girl, smartass, social phobe, and all-around weirdo. And you gave Libby Mosier's My Life as a Girl a 5 star rating. Could you be a Bryn Mawrtyr?
Ministry? So not brutal.
Oh hey, look, Fear Factory! Still a bit on the soft side for me, but at least I've heard a couple of the band's songs. Yep, I think at this rate you'll be listening to Cannibal Corpse and Skinless in no time. :P
Thanks for adding me!
...o.o! One of these days I need to just compose a list of the most absurd-sounding books imaginable and check them all out at the same time.
HAHA! Wow, I'm seriously impressed by your knowledge of humiliating books. Still not checking any of them out though...can't do it...
Haha, yeah, I won't be checking out any of those any time soon. The librarians probably think I'm creepy enough with my awkwardness and fondness for weird disease books, so no Cooking with Pooh for me!
No, no, that sounds more embarrassing than the insect sex biology books. :P
Cool! Errrr, I think...
There's an LOLcat book!?
I think there are a lot of sites that do that price comparison thing now, but I rarely find things as cheap as I do when buying used items on Amazon. Except those old paperback classic you can get for $2 or so elsewhere.

This is why I need (or don't need) a used bookstore in my town. Shipping... *Grumbles* Hate it!

Yeah, like Vampire Haiku, Zombie Haiku is in a diary/journal format written by someone who as bitten by a zombie. *Shrug* I assume Werewolf Haiku is basically the same thing? Sheesh, when you think about it, these paranormal myths are quite repetitive!
The zombie one wasn't bad, and it is also a continuous storyline, but I think I was mostly disappointed by it because I had been looking forward to reading it for ages, and it just didn't meet my expectations. *Shrug*

There are 1-cent copies of the Werewolf book on Amazon. Bah, curse the $3.99 shipping charge. *Grumble grumble*
Oh hey, look, you read Vampire Haiku! Hmmm, only 3 stars, huh? Too bad, but it reminds me I need to check this new library system I'm using to see if they have the werewolf book.

*Checks*

Nope... -.-
Hello Sara! I hope all is well. I don't hear from you much.
*Gasp* You entered a...a...a book! =P
Soulseek was my preference, although I haven't used it in ages because I haven't been that much into music over the past couple of years, although I've been getting back into it a bit more lately. In fact, I see you entered Astro-Creep: 2000, which I was just listening to this morning. :)

I liked nu-metal in middle school, but kind of got tired of it. In high school I listened to a lot of metalcore, but then got tired of that too. Now? Well... *ahem* I believe I've already made posts about that.

Of all music I listened to in middle school (Korn, Slipknot, and all that) there are actually two bands I can still listen to, System of a Down and Coal Chamber. Specifically the cd Dark Days by Coal Chamber. I'm almost embarrassed to admit to that. :P

Oh! And that is supposed to be "Spoils" of the sycophant. Why can't comments have an edit button? Hmmm...
But that would require me to enter them into my library, thus admitting that I own two of them. Never!!

This isn't fair! You listen to a wide variety of music, MUCH more diverse than me, but every time you enter a metal album it's nu-metal or some other form of 'popular' metal. I henceforth demand you go download-steal a more accurate representation of the genre! Here are my song demans:

"Your Nightmare Reality" by Putrid Pile
"Agony Through Rituals of Purification" by Down from the Wound
"Spils of the Sycophant" by Skinless
"By Your Bedside" by Vehemence
"The Fog" or "Dessicate" by Zombie Death Stench

There! You'll be a better, happier person after hearing one of those. I swear. >:P

(Ok ok, I just wanted to post weird/creepy/disturbing things on your profile, I'll stop now.)
Hello Sara. I just wanted to point out that you may have accidentally mis-clicked when you rated that Korn cd there. It seems you mistakenly gave it 5 stars, instead of 1! It's a good thing I was paying attention, what a shame it would have been had it continued on with such a inaccurate rating.

:P
Ha, well, I don't listen to Godsmack or Ozzy Osbourne or Black Sabbath nowadays. I believe I mentioned on your thread my...'questionable' tastes in music. >:)
By 'once' I meant I listened to them...err, before! In, I think, 6th/7th grade. But I traded the cd for an Ozzy Osbourne one. :P
Hey look, Godsmack, I listened to them once! Y'know, my sister's boyfriend is related to Sully. Oh yeah, that totally makes me like 10 percent cooler, right? 8-) *Trips inexplicably over his own foot*
I just wanted say hi Sara and I hope all is well.
Sara,

How are you? I hope all is well.
Not much going on here. I am trying to keep my head above water. So, what do you do out there in Washington?
It is actually a pain in the butt. I am putting in a lot manually. How are you by the way?
Thanks mucho! I will give those a try after work today :)
Hey Sara, how do you add CDs to your library?
Merry Christmas, Dear Sara! What did Santa bring you this year? Perhaps a mostly nude lopsided fake Native American gentleman? No? Are you sure you opened up ALL of the packages?!? ;)

Hope you are having a great day!

*Mwah*

Laura
Wishing you and your family a joyous and blessed Christmas Sara.
She kind of expects me to be there. I like winter. Where I live I get to see deer behind my condo. You and I sound alike.
I will be home alone Christmas Day. I will probably read and reflect. I am going to my mom's New Years' Day. My family will be there. They are kind of weird. You don't want to hear about them though. I am only going because my mom wants me to. I hear the weather is kind of bad out there.
I loved "For Better Or Worse" also. What are your plans for Christmas?
I see you like Calvin & Hobbs. I like them too. I miss them being in the paper.
I am awake early everyday. I guess I do not need much sleep. Are you ready for Christmas?
Have a nice day. I am going to take a nap. I was shoveling snow at 4:00 am.
Wow, five cats!?!?! My one cat is a handful.
It is snowing here this morning. I shoveled my driveway three times already, but I am done until tomorrow. What kind of critters? I have a cat.
So, how are you Sara?
I just wanted to say good morning.
Oh, you are right. I forgot. I hope you have a nice day Sara.
I didn't think I'd reviewed Mists?
You thumbed me? I have a first edition of Mists. I have read it half a dozen times and I am sure I will read it again. I love the other Avalon books also.
Hello Sara. I love the Mists of Avalon.
Yay to the tofurky eaters!
Yay! You're welcome my dear, and I hope you enjoy the CDs. (The book I know you will enjoy.) Just read on another thread around here that Seattle is getting lots of snow - if you're near there I hope you drive home safely! Happy Monday to you, friend!
Just wanted to let you know that your super-secret delivery will be on its way to you within 24 hours, so keep your eyes peeled!

Kinda random question for you: are you a person who needs to know the name of the song and the artist on a CD? Or are you okay with not having it written down for you to reference?

Cheers!
ROFL at least only on Stephen's thread.
We seem to be the only vegetarians! LOL!
Ugh, okay I was thinking about this all night long, and well ... I caved. If it's still there and you can get your hands on it, I'll take it. I have no self-control - and whatever self-control I do have is fleeting. Damn. I'll pay you for the book and postage, just let me know how much I owe you. Once again my dear, you are a bad influence of the very best kind. :-) Thanks!
Hey Sara,

Normally I'd say "hells yeah!", but I just gave myself a talkin' to regarding buying books and I really shouldn't get this one now. I'm sure I'll kick myself in the pants later on, but I'd better not.

Thanks so much for looking out for me Sara! You are totally fantastic! And, does this mean that you're now on PBS? If so, we should "friend" each other!

My computer is going in for some fixin' tomorrow, so I don't know exactly when I'll be back here to check messages, FYI. I do need to check my work email every day, so that means I'll probably be on here once a day too, but I'm used to being here at least 3 times a day. I'm already scared of the withdrawal shakes I'm bound to get!

Hope you have a good weekend, dear friend!
DUDE, you are DA BOMB! That Nicholas Adams book is the exact one I was looking for! I just popped over to PaperbackSwap and ordered myself a copy! And seriously, you should totally be on there - they have quite a lot of semi-obscure 90's teen novels and you'd totally be in trouble - it's lots of free books!

And the Anne Rice one was Belinda, and I remember you talking about the Sleeping Beauty trilogy as well. I think I'll have to scrounge used bookstores for those babies. I mean, they're on PBS, but I'm kinda out of credits there.

Yes yes yes you are the best!

Thanks Sara!
Sara,

I have a nerdy 90's YA book question for you. This morning I finished the first Vampire Diaries book (so good!), and in the back of it they printed the first 2 chapters of a book that was (I think) called I.O.U.. I just did a search here on LT and can't find it at all. I'm wondering if you know of it? It reminded me of RL Stine or Christopher Pike, but maybe written a little better. (Then again, I haven't read either of those 2 in probably 20 years, so please forgive my crap memory.) It completely sucked me in, and I thought of you right away, that you'd probably like it as well. I'd just re-request the VD book but there's a waiting list and I'm an idiot for not writing it down.

Also, earlier this year (or last year, my brain is like Swiss cheese) you mentioned that you liked a series of Anne Rice books that you recommended to me - was it the Sleeping Beauty books? I feel like there was a B somewhere in the series name.

Sorry to annoy you/make you strain your brain, but Sara - you're my only hope!

awesome collection.
I hope I get to view your library soon when it can become public.
That's fine. I'll be over at shelfari for a while, and I'm still checking librarything everday. My screen name is hannah u.
Happy Belated Birthday, Sara! Sorry I missed your actual day, and I'm glad to see (or rather, read) that you had a nice, lazy day - and that you got books! Seriously, there really isn't a better present in the world.
Welcome to the In-Your-Thirties Club (I'm 32, and I sometimes forget that I'm NOT 15, except for when I wake up and then I feel like I'm 62), and I hope you enjoy the rest of the week!
Thanks! :)
When I was in high school I was ALL ABOUT Katherine Applegate! I can't believe that I ever gave her books away, but I have pulled my parents' house apart looking for them and I can't find them anywhere. I'm almost done getting her "Summer" and "Ocean City" series, and I'll be starting on the "Making Out" series next year. I so wanted to be Zoey! I seem to recall that she had a fun way of sneaking into her room, like through a window or from a hatch in the roof or something. Do you remember that? Looking forward to re-reading these old favorites/current guilty pleasures, sooner rather than later. Have you re-read them since they first came out?
My TBR pile only seems to be growing since I joined here, but I know what you mean. I have a stock pile of Vamp books that are waiting to be read, there just never seems to be enough time in the day to read all I want and now that my work is picking up I have even less time for reading. Such is life I guess!
Thanks! I just find that with the 999 challenge you are kinda restricted to how many of one type of book you can read and my moods change so frequently that's why I made it so you can do what ever you want, ths way everybodys happy. Thanks for joining even though it still early....lol!

Are you me? I guess I'm only 22 and a leo, but otherwise I felt I was reading my own bio. It's a pity your library is private. You seem like you would some amazing books!
Sara, I see you're a Tanith Lee fan! Have you read Dark Dance? Now THAT's my favorite vampire novel. Although it's not really about Hollywood style vampires, or much of a novel. I just like the sullen character of Rachaela who I imagine as being a really subdued, introverted Anne Hathaway, and the Scarabae's rambling old folks home perched on a seaside cliff. I think the book is really good at imagining the ennui, as well as the oddness and isolation, of being a vampire as opposed to the blood lust or romance on which most novels of the genre focus.
A Little Song of Life

GLAD that I live am I;
That the sky is blue;
Glad for the country lanes,
And the fall of dew.

After the sun the rain;
After the rain the sun;
This is the way of life,
Till the work be done.

All that we need to do,
Be we low or high,
Is to see that we grow
Nearer the sky.

Hey Sara! Yes, it has been quite awhile! I hope things are well with you!! I didn't make my 50 book challenge last year, although my personal goal of just reading more books I was able to accomplish. I'm trying again for another 50 books read, but at the current rate I'm going I'm not going to make it. I haven't been in much in a motivated reading mood I guess. I did read "Twilight" and was surprised by how fast I read it, however I started the second one and haven't yet gotten to far into it. I'm going to try to pick it up again later.. maybe I'm just too "sparkled" out by vampires at the moment. ;)
Good luck on the Paranormal Challenge. Yes I have seen Twilight. I went and saw it in the theater twice that day. I enjoyed it. I do want to see it again.
Yes I am a Twilight Fan. I became a late one, just before the last book came out is when I finally broke down and read them. Glad I did too. I take it you like Paranormal books.
That cat, Buckaroux, adores being on Steph's shoulders -- while he's doing carpentry, at the computer... He can be a nuisance! But he's a cute one :)
ooh and I came over to see your animals... are they viewable on flickr perhaps?

hopefully,
Susan
Put your mind at ease! Immature adults are out here!

Thanks for leaving me a note. It was a nice New Year's surprise!

:D
Hi Sara,

Thanks for the comments and ideas on the 999 challenge. My husband likes to tease me because I'm so ridiculously in love with this website (I haven't stopped thanking my friend, Jamie, for introducing me to it). I'm jealous of the number of books in your library. I have maybe half of my books entered in (though none from my classroom library). Every now and again I get on a kick and enter a whole bunch in, but there's too many! I do force myself to keep entering in new ones as I get them. If you have any recommendations for books, I'd love them.

Happy New Year!
Amy.
Yes, you have GREAT taste in books!!!
Welcome to the 2009 75 Books Challenge group. Thanks for joining in!
Hi, yes thanks - that's my golden retriever. She was pretty tired that day which is why I was able to keep the santa hat on long enough for a picture!
I hope you dont mind.. I have friended you!
Thank you so much for responding to my ‘Si-Fi recommendation’ thread. I have tried the recommendation link from my profile but because my library is mostly vampire literature a vast majority of the recommendations are vampires as well. I’m trying to branch away for vampires for a little bit.

However, the link to the whatshouldireadnext.com website has not only started my ‘to be read’ list but has giving it a good length as well! That website is awesome!

Thanks!
Seriously, my mother burned many romance novels. Also, in 5th grade I brought home 1-100 of Sweet Valley High, and she took all those, too. I'm not sure what she did with them, but I never saw them again. I'm slowly trying to build a collection of those, but it hurts to have to pay for what I got for free about 15 years ago...

Thanks for making your library public so that I could browse it...I've finished looking and put some things on my wish list! (I thought I'd do that quick so you could privatize it again). I couldn't figure out what tag you were using for 'unread,' though. You have almost as many books as I have, so I assume there are some you own that you've yet to read. I was curious how many of those you have. My unread list currently numbers 1,178...

I did read Ann Rice's witches books this year and am currently working through the vampire chronicles, as those series merge towards the end. I am enamored with the Taltos; I think they're fantastic. What a rich set of characters she's created!

Sara,
I can understand that. However, I like to taunt my ridiculously religious mother with my collection of books about witchcraft and sex. (It's revenge for her burning books she considered 'of the devil' when I was younger and brought them home). Now that I'm almost 30 and have my own house, she can't really do anything about it. It amuses me...but that's my own personal issue...
I am glad that we share so many books...what are your favorites of the ones we both have?
~Lily
Hi Sara,
Thanks for your comment. I was trying for 200 books this year, but it doesn't look like I'm going to make it!
I'm curious, why did you make your library private? I was going to come over and browse what you have since we both like YA.
~Lily
Hi Sara,

My profile picture is of a hamster we used to have. My daughter did the animation.

Can you believe I'm thinking of doing the 999 challenge when I finish the 888 one?! I must be nuts! :)

Hi Sara,

:) Thanks for your response and making your library visible to me temporarily. The links in your profile now work. You have about 450 books rated with 5 stars! So I will have to focus on tags or authors.

I can now see which books we share: 3 books by Anne Rice. I actually read 5 books by her and entered only the ones I own in my library. "Interview with the vampire" I liked best, from the first sentences of the book you are "in" the story.

You have 1 book by James Herbert: "Sepulchre". What do you think of that book? It's not rated. I've read "The rats" and "The fog" by James Herbert and really liked them.

From your tag "Time travel" you have two 5 star books. I've read books about time travel but they're not in my library on LT since they were borrowed from the library. I'll take a closer look at your library later, so that within a week you can make it private again. Thanks!

Do you know what would be a good way to make covers? I don't have a scanner so I made pictures with a digital camera. It works, but even without the flash you can see a reflection of light. And the ratio of the books (length/width) are not the same as the ratio of the photos.

By the way, the coming 3 days I will be in a training (for work) and probably will not have access to internet or E-mail. Nice communicating with you. :)

Regards,
Richard
Thanks! That's so nice of you to say! I always feel like my reviews aren't proper and review-y enough. But how can you NOT love a book like Heaven? It's a hoot!
Thanks for stopping by my library, Sara, and "Hi" back to you. The cat in the picture (of my profile) is my daughter's cat, Silvia. She is sitting in her favorite spot. I'm glad I found your library since I'm always on the look-out for good juvenile and YA books to recommend. I look forward to browsing through your library.
Hi, thanks for clearing that up for me. I never thought that WA stood for Washington, I thought it was the first and last letter of the state in the abbreviation.

I haven't seen the other book about what pets do while you are out but I will definately look for it now. The other book was so funny. I've often wondered what my dog does while I am out and have thought about setting up a web cam on her. My husband laughs at me because I sometimes call the answer machine to 'talk' to her while we are out. He comes home to a message saying "Scottie, what are you doing Scottie? Sit! Good Girl!" and for some reason he thinks that is funny. I'd love to know what she gets up to while we are out.
Just stopping by to say hi back to you.

Where is WA? I'm not very good with remembering all the states and their abbreviations but am guessing Witcheta. Sorry if that's wrong.

I've just had a look at your library and seen you have the Bad Dogs book. I just borrowed that from my SiL and it's really funny. I love the dog that says "The only difference between lovable old me and a hideous creature is half an inch of gum."
Hey!! I owe it all to you for leading me here! :) I've been a bit slow...at many things lately, but that's the way it goes. Hope you are doing well, I miss you over at Blurty! ~Jen
Oh I wish I was organised! I keep starting on one thing and then getting sidetracked by another. The best thing though is finding out about books that I didn't read when I was a kid because no one told us what was good and what wasn't. I just used to wander about reading anything I could find - it was very hit and miss! Anyway, thanks for stopping by ^_~ (I am going to peek in your library now!)
Serendipity, Christopher Pike, Richie Tankersley Cusick, Laurell K. Hamilton... fabulous books we have in common!! I love those Serendipitys too. :) And all of the old juvenile thrillers were great! (Sorry, I haven't been on in a while)
Looking at your catalog, we share a lot more books that I just haven't entered yet because of the restrictions of not being a paid member! lol I think I may have to pay, just to enter all my Babysitter's Club books and stuff.
Wow, you and I share 99 books ... looks like we had the same taste in YA novels. :D
Huzzah to oldschool YA thrillers! Have you read Richie T. Cusick's Unseen series? I can't seem to get past the 2nd half of BK#2... her new stuff makes me sad.

Nice Roger icon thingy ^_^
Sorry it took so long to respond. I always forget that there is a comments section here. Some of the books we share are my favorite books of all time, so don't worry about numbers. Thanks, I tend to see my collection as more daunting than impressive. I just don't know when I'm going to get the time to read all of these books, but it's fun to buy and trade for them.
Hi! I'm surprised we don't share more books, or maybe we do, and they are just different editions hast don't recognise each other.

I'm having fun adding more cover images right now.
