Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Eva and me that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library. If you’d like to participate, just write up your post-feel free to steal the button-and link it using the Mr. Linky any time during the week. And of course check out what other participants are getting from their libraries!
Eva is on holidays this week, so you are stuck with me for the second week in a row! Luckily I have been to the library twice this week so there is plenty of loot (and some reloot) to talk about! There are actually four books already waiting at the library to be picked up the next time I go there, but more about those next week!
So my loot this week is:
The Suspect by Michael Robotham - I have heard such good things about this Australian author's books, particularly Shatter but that book is a later book in the series. This book is the first book, because I have to read series in order.
The Company by Arabella Edge - When I was in Perth a couple of weeks ago, one of the things that we did was go to the Shipwrecks Gallery. The centrepiece of the museum is a small part of the Batavia, a ship from the Dutch East Indies Company (VOC). I now would like to read about the VOC, and this is the first book I have chosen to read.
Bluey's War by Herb Hamlet - My cousin dropped this book off for my grandmother to read while I was over in Perth visiting. I also think that this book my fit for the War Through the Generations Challenge.
The Lieutenant's Lover by Harry Bingham - I have had this book on my TBR list for ages, but I was reminded to actually borrow it by a review that I saw recently. Unfortunately I didn't write down when I saw the review! I think that this book will count for the War Through the Generations challenge as well.
Company of Liars: A Novel of the Plague by Karen Maitland - This book is Book of the Month for August over at Historical Fiction Online. I have heard lots and lots of good things about it!
A Guide to the Birds of East Africa by Nicholas Drayson - Wow, I am getting slack. Normally I am quite good at writing down where I saw the review that prompted me to request a book, but for the second time in this post I can't remember who inspired me!
My loot this week outnumbers my reloot which I am taking to be a good sign! My reloot for this week is:
The Passion of Artemisia by Susan Vreeland - for Art History challenge
Angelique in Revolt by Sergeanne Golon - the next Angelique book
Emma by Kaoru Mori - I started reading this book last time I had it out but couldn't finish it in time.
Mistress of the Sun by Sandra Gulland - I swear I am going to read this book this time!
