Welcome! Bienvenido! Witamy! Bienvenue! 歡迎!

Welcome to MyLibraryCardWoreOut!

I have noticed that a lot of my readers are world-wide. Many of my visitors are from the United States but I get some lovely visits from France, Australia, Israel and many other places too. So where ever you are from, welcome to here and search and see if you can find what you are looking for. Just like a library, I try to keep my shelves up to date, but sometimes I don’t succeed. But I keep trying and usually once a week or at least every two weeks there is a book review and I try and get fun book related things up too! Also with the help of M.O.M (My Own Mother) we keep this blog running. Scroll down to read my latest posts. Enjoy and once again, welcome!

How Well Do You Know Banned Books?

If the subject of banned books isn’t something you know a lot about you might just be surprised. Here is a little quiz courtesy of PlayBuzz that is really enlightening and entertaining. It’s ok if you don’t know all the answers – there are so many books challenged and banned who could keep up with it?

29 Days…

There are only 29 days until Halloween!

Let the spooky countdown begin!

I’ll be working on, around my University homework, getting Halloween things posted such as movies, stories and poems.

But does anyone have their costumes ready? Or any plans for Halloween? I know I do. ^.^

Banned Books Week – Go And Check Out A Challenged Book

In honor of Banned Books Week here is a list of books that are the most frequently challenged in libraries.

If you are into classics take a look at these. Makes very interesting reading. Who would have thought it would include The Great Gatsby? The Call Of The Wild? The Lord Of The Rings? Really? what did Frodo do?

One other book(s) that made the list, and is an interesting choice as we head over to October and all things spooky, is Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark by Alvin Schwatz. This series of books made the list too. To commemorate this interesting achievement you might want to check out upcoming events that coincide with this and Banned Books Week.

So, what challenged book are you reading?

Lover Awakened: The Third Novel of the Black Dagger Brotherhood by J.R. Ward


“A former blood slave, the vampire Zsadist still bears the scars from a past filled with suffering and humiliation. Renowned for his unquenchable fury and sinister deeds, he is a savage feared by humans and vampires alike. Anger is his only companion and terror his only passion—until he rescues a beautiful female from the evil Lessening Society.

Bella is instantly entranced by the seething power Zsadist possesses. But even as their desire for each other begins to overtake them, Zsadist’s thirst for vengeance against Bella’s tormentors drives him to the brink of madness. Now Bella must help her lover overcome the wounds of his tortured past and find a future with her….”

-From Amazon.com


Once again…it’s another fangirl moment. I absolutely loved the book it was SOOOOO good. But you have no idea how many times I just wanted to smack Zsadist because he was sometimes so stupid! I mean it was obvious that Bella loved him through the entire book and you know about it from the book before; it was no surprise. But Z seemed to be completely oblivious and wanted to completely block her out.

This is one of the moment you just wanted to reach into the book and smack the character; yet if you smacked Z it wouldn’t end well. Most likely you’d be beaten within an inch of your life.

There was some serious character development in this book and one huge punch to the gut later on which I cannot say…but I’m still reeling from it. I had to read it a few times to make sure that I had read what happened correctly and then wanted to throw the book across the room….

Yes, it was one of those moments.

Once again, I read this book in a few days. It only took longer because I’ve finally started school and have something called school work…that foreign stuff which takes up all your spare minutes.

J.R. Ward is really good at describing her characters by not necessarily stating exactly what they look like but by the type of personality they have and she lets your mind do the rest. She says what they ware, maybe some characteristics, such as Z’s scar, and then their size, but then just says how they carry themselves. Wrath has this air or authority and terror about him while Z is just soul-less. Then your mind just gets to go off and make up who it wants which is nice.

Overall I just really recommend this series. I’m totally in love but I’m going to have to wait a little while to get the next one as I need to concentrate on school books and ‘substantial classic literature’. Time to bring out a little Socrates for now xD

So let me know what you think of this series and until next time, Happy Reading!

Banned Books Week 2015

It’s Banned Books Week again people! The week when we are reminded that it is always a good time to read a book that is banned or challenged. First Amendment rights. This is what the Founding Fathers worked so hard for. So once again we will consider what books they are, and why you should definitely read them. This is actually voting, but without having to stand in line, or fill out forms. By reading a banned book you are voting for freedom from censorship, voting for freedom of speech and standing up for democracy.

For those who may not know Banned Books Week is the week designated by the American Library Association to celebrate the freedom to read. You can read more about it here and here.

Day 2: Audit Your Brand

So the second thing they told us to do was look around the blog and see how we felt about the theme and how it represented what we wanted.

Honestly, I really like the theme this blog has for now. I know that I’ve always jumped around with the theme but it’s hard to choose a good one that you don’t have to pay for (since I am on a student budge and never can afford anything anyway). But finally I found one that I like and think is nice and simple. Yes, it will be changed probably around Halloween (if the Halloween themes are good) and I may change it around Christmas as well, but otherwise this is what I’m keeping.

It’s simple, easy to read, and just seems to fit.

My question to my readers is, do you find on blogs that the theme can color your opinion on the blog? Do you feel that the blogs theme really gives you a serious impression or is it just superfluous ‘information’?
