Library Loot

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!

Last week I did the Library Loot post with no loot to share. This week it is a different story altogether!

I may have actually cheated this week by not only borrowing books on my own library card, but also on my son's card as well! We went to the new library branch (oh, the new library smell) and there was a library full of new books, and I couldn't resist borrowing a couple of books even though I knew that I really didn't have enough room of my own. As tempting as it is, I really don't want to get into the habit of doing that too often.

Mr Linky is up at Eva's blog this week, so please be sure to share your library loot there!

My loot this week is:

Dreamfever by Karen Marie Moning
- This is the latest book in the Fever series by Karen Marie Moning. I haven't been blown away by the series as a whole, but I am happy enough to keep reading it until the end having already read the previous three books in the series.

The Kingmaking by Helen Hollick

I have been sent Pendragon's Banner for review. I know they say that you can read it without having read The Kingmaking, but I prefer to read books in order when they are connected.

Rumour Has It by Jill Mansell
- I've read a couple of Jill Mansell books so far this year and really enjoyed them. This was the latest release as far as I can tell.

Everything Beautiful by Simmone Howell

A few weeks ago The Book Smugglers held the YA Appreciation Week. In my post, I mentioned that I didn't know that many Australian YA authors, and this is one that was recommended by Ana.

Ironbark by Johanna Nicholls - It's not often that I pick up a book on impulse when I am at the shops but every now and again it happens. I saw this book at a shop a few weeks ago and I very nearly bought it, but in the end I decided against it. When I came home and checked the library catalogue they had it on order, but it has taken until now to actually arrive at the library.

Men of the Otherworld by Kelley Armstrong

I am pretty sure that if Kelley Armstrong started writing on the back of toilet paper, I would still want to read it. This book has been on order for the new library for what feels like forever! I am so excited by the prospect of reading it!

The Lost Prophecies by The Medieval Murderers - The Medieval Murderers are Bernard Knight, C J Sansom, Ian Morson, Michael Jecks, Philip Gooden and Susanna Gregory. This was a totally impulsive pick up. I mean, I couldn't leave a library branch without borrowing a new book could I?


The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss - I borrowed this a few weeks ago as a result of the review I read at Book Smugglers, but had to return it unread. Maybe this time!

3 Willows by Anna Brashares - I returned this unread a while ago. This time I have borrowed the audio book, and I am planning to read it during the very long trip to Adelaide this weekend. I am hoping that it will help the time pass quicker than it normally would. A ten hour drive in a car with my mother is not necessarily my idea of a good time!


  1. They all look good. I just finished will need to sit on a block of ice while reading this hot and steamy book!!!

  2. Love the cover of Everything Beautiful! The Lost Prophecies sounds so neat, and the cover makes me want to see it. :D

  3. I just started reading Women of the Otherworld by Kelley Armstrong. Totally loving it so far!

  4. Mmmmm.... new library smell! Everything Beautiful is an interesting book. Hope you like it!

  5. I have the first book in the Otherworlds series and am really looking forward to reading it. Hope you enjoy all your library books this week and get a chance to read everything!

  6. Zibilee and Linda, I liked the first book but wasn't totally enthralled by it. The series just got stronger and stronger, and now I count Kelley Armstrong among my favourite authors!

    Melissa, to be honest I don't even know much about it!

    Eva, I think this book is actually part of a series, but I haven't been able to figure out how they are connected, same detective? same location? Not sure yet.

    Staci, I will go put a big block of ice in the freezer then!

  7. Looks like a great assortment of books. 3 Willows has caught my eye!

  8. Great idea for a post. It's always interesting to see what books people are reading. You will like Men of the Otherworld, though I didn't find it quite as good as Bitten. I'm currently reading from my library - Stolen by Ms. Armstrong.

  9. I own The Name of the Wind and STILL haven't read it... One day...
