Library Loot!

This week has been a busy library week. I am so not doing well at keeping the number of books out down to a reasonable level.

This week I picked up:

TheWinter Sea by Susanna Kearsley - I've borrowed this before but not been able to read it. I hope to this time

Sin and Scandal in England by Melody Thomas - I've read a few of this authors books and liked them, but I had forgotten about them a bit.

The Winding Ways Quilt by Jennifer Chiaverini - next book in the Elm Creek Quilt series

Kiss the Night Goodbye by Keri Arthur - I think there has been a bit of a mix up with this one. I don't remember requesting it, but it was there waiting for me to pick up today. The other thing is that it is the fourth book in the series, but I haven't read the first three yet, and I don't often do reading books out of order. This one will be going back to the library in the next visit.

In the Woods by Tana French - I have been aware of this book for a while now and decided to finally request it a couple of days ago based on a review of one of her later books that I saw at Lesley's Book Nook.

A is for Alibi by Sue Grafton - I have been meaning to read this series for years. Today I was browsing the audiobook aisle, and noticed that they had a number of the later books in the series available, so picked up the first book in the series to read and then I can move onto listening to those that the library does have.

3 Willows: A New Sisterhood Grows by Ann Brashares - Another Secret Sisterhood or something different? I guess I will find out in due course.

The scary thing is that I only went to the library a couple of hours ago, and I already have two more books there to pick up already.

  1. Looking forward to know your thoughts on the Sue Grafton novel. I've been meaning to try it too.

  2. Marg,
    I left you an award on my blog.

  3. I know what you mean about In the Woods. I just haven't had the time to read it.

  4. I have In the Woods on my shelf to read, I've read most of the Alphabet mysteries (I love them), and I know just what you mean by going to the library- I currently have over 15 books out of the library!!! As well as my 100+ sitting on my TBR shelf to read!

  5. In the woods is supposed to be excellent. I haven't heard of any of the other books. Happy Reading!

  6. I like the cover for The Winter Sea. Let me know when you finish it if you think I would like it!

  7. I thought I was the only one who constantly had books ready to be collected from the library!! It's nice to hear others are in that situation too! I read In The Woods last year and loved it - it definitely draws you in. Hope you enjoy it.

  8. I had 3 Willows out of the library a while back-never did get a chance to read it. I love the cover on The Winter Sea. Looks so pretty. Hope you get those read this time. Mine are all still in a pile.

  9. I just finished In The Woods and enjoyed it so I will be looking forward to hearing your thoughts when you finish. I am doing horribly at not checking out so many books...oh well...if it makes me happy :)

  10. I have In the Woods on my wishlist and I've been meaning to read the Sue Grafton series for years too. Enjoy your loot!

  11. I think you've cut back a little since your original LL post but you're having fun and it keeps people working so why not enjoy it. Happy reading.

  12. My library stack always seems to grow. Somehow I always manage to check out more than I take back.
