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!

Before I share my loot, I would like to give a big shout out to a couple of people who not only shared their Library Loot for the first time a couple of weeks ago, but who are also new to book blogging! Welcome to Library Loot to Kayleigh from The Inkwell and Debilyn from Debilyn Reads.

For the second time in the last couple of months I had no loot to share last week, but luckily I did make it to the library to pick up a few books this week. At the moment, my list of library books out looks relatively healthy - I am down to less than 50 which is pretty good for me!

The books I picked up this week were:

Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger - Have to say the cover on this one looks much better in real life that it does on the net.

Virgin River by Robyn Carr - I have been thinking about reading this contemporary romance series for ages, but for the longest time my library didn't have any of the books. Now that has changed, and I think that most of them are available now.

Churchill's Hour by Michael Dobbs - This is the third out of a series of four books about Winston Churchill during WWII, and the last book in the series that I need to read.

A Distant Shore by Peter Yeldham - Reloot. I loved Peter Yeldham's book, Barbed Wire and Roses, and so it is my intention to read through the other books from this Australian author.

When the Duke Returns by Eloisa James - Next book in the Desperate Duchesses series

First Comes Marriage by Mary Balogh - Reloot. I have pretty much lost track of how many times I have borrowed this book. One of these days I will actually read it!

So, how about you? What loot have you picked up in the last week? Add your link to Mr Linky below so that we can come and have a sticky beak to see what you have out from the library at the moment.


  1. Enjoy Her Fearful Symmetry--it's a great book!

  2. Great loot. Looking forward to Her Fearful Symmetry.

  3. Good for you giving shout-outs! That's a great idea. :) I'm still waiting for Her Fearful Symmetry, but I'm high enough on the list that I'll get it as soon as the batch of first-readers return their copies. :) So no more than 2 weeks now!

  4. Ooh, great loot! I'm particularly jealous of Her Fearful Symmetry. My libraries are not cooperating with that one! I also really enjoyed When the Duke Returns - it's when that series really took off for me.

  5. I still have not read The Time Traveler's Wife. Ack! I am so out of the loop.

  6. Looks like a good pile of book. I'm still waiting for Her Fearful Symmetry - 17 copies available and I'm 25th in line.

  7. I have the Audrey Niffenegger book to read, but I haven't had a chance to yet. Hopefully sooner rather than later!

  8. I was going to write basically exactly what Stephanie (reviewsbylola) did, so I'll just say "ditto."

  9. Great loot, Marg. I always wanted to pick up Eloisa James' Desperate Duchesses series. I hope you like this latest one... I've seen good reviews for it, and the series overall. The same goes for Robyn Carr's series.

  10. This comment has been removed by the author.

  11. Thanks for the shout out! :) That's so nice!

  12. Her Fearful Symmetry looks like a great book, and I have been reading very positive reviews of it. I will be interested in hearing what you think of it and I hope you enjoy it!

  13. I so want to read Her Fearful Symmetry, although the reviews I've read so far have been mixed. Enjoy your books!

  14. I loved Her Fearful Symmetry. Great loot this week!

  15. Just found your blog, via a few others.
    Like every booklover, can't resist walking out of the library without a FEW books, eventhough I have shelves at home laden with them.
    Have any of you checked out C S Gortner's blog - found the link on the Historical Tapestry site, and what a great idea to be able to watch a trailer of new books.

    a big hi from Australia also.

  16. I thought I was the only one with failed checkouts -- I have some books I've checked out multiple times.

    I just found your blog, so I added my library haul list.
