Library Loot catch up, and an award!

It's been a little while since I have been able to do a Library Loot post, so I thought I would do a catch up, and then will be able to keep on top of things again. In the last couple of Library Loot posts I did mention that I had reached my maximum number of books out, so I have been being a bit careful about not just requesting everything that just catches my eye like I normally do. Now I am back down to ONLY 47 books out, I will be able to be a little freer with my requests again!

The books I have borrowed in the last couple of weeks are:

Legacy by Lois McMaster Bujold - I really enjoyed the first book in this series and I am looking forward to reacquainting myself with Dag and Fawn.

Fishing for Stars by Bryce Courtney - I started reading this book earlier this year because it is the sequel to The Persimmon Tree which I really enjoyed. I ended up having to take this back to the library unfinished because I couldn't extend it.

Moonlight and Vines by Charles de Lint - My library is missing lots of the Newford books so I am just borrowing whichever ones they do have.

Calamity Jayne Rides Again by Kathleen Bacus - The first book was a fun read. I don't know that I would spend money on them, but I am happy to borrow as many as the library has.

The Likeness by Tana French - I really liked In the Woods, and until I actually picked this up from the library I didn't realise that The Likeness features one of the same characters. I am looking forward to reading this.

The Iron Hand of Mars by Lindsey Davis - next book in the Marcus Didius Falco mystery series set in ancient Rome.

The Sweet Far Thing by Libba Bray - I read the first two books in this series a couple of years ago and really enjoyed them. Ever since this book came out last year I have been waiting very impatiently to get hold of this book but it seemed to take forever for it to come in to the library.

I just wanted to quickly also say a special Thank You to Desert Rose Booklogue who awarded me with the Literary Blogger Award while I was MIA!


  1. Congrats on your award!

    I hope you'll like The Likness. I loved it too. Definitely looking forward to her next book.

  2. Legacy and The Likeness look like really great reads!

  3. I so need to read the Likeness!!!! Congrats on the cool award!!

  4. I'm reading a book by Bryce Courtney next month (The Power of One). And I love de Lint! I need to read the next two in the Bray series; I enjoyed the first one. :)

  5. Yay for Libba Bray! I am glad you are finally going to be able to read the third book!
