This week's Library Loot includes the confession that once more I borrowed more than I took back, but I still am under 50 books out...just!
Mistress of the Sun by Sandra Gulland - I think this is about the fourth time that I have borrowed this book. I really do want to read it, but I keep on having to return it before I have even started it yet. Maybe this will be the time when I actually read it!
Cross Stitch by Diana Gabaldon - Michele from A Reader's Respite and Amy from Passages to the Past are hosting the Outlander challenge. I haven't officially signed up, but the idea is to try and reread the book in the series in anticipation of the latest Outlander book, An Echo in the Bone which is due to be released on September 22. I actually own two copies of this book, but I lent it to one friend who I have since lost touch with (in fact, she has the first three books in the series). Once I realised that I wasn't going to see them again, I went and re brought the first three books again, and then lent the first one to a girl I work with who has had it for probably two years and hasn't finished it yet. I did ask her for it a couple of times, but because I am tempted by the reread challenge I have borrowed it from the library. I will definitely be nagging my colleague to give my copy back though. I don't really want to have to buy it for the third time.
The Iron Hand of Mars by Lindsey Davis - the next instalment in the Marcus Didius Falco mystery series set in Ancient Rome.
Sabriel by Garth Nix - Now that I am up to date with the Keys of the Kingdom series, I am looking forward to reading some of his other books.
Grave Peril by Jim Butcher - I have been trying to pick up this book for weeks, but the last time I had it on request the library catalogue suggested that it was the hold shelf, but I couldn't find it. Fortunately no such issues this time.
