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!

This week Eva has the Mr Linky so head over to her blog to share your link to your loot posts so that we can come and check out what you borrowed this week!

As for me, well, I have some new loot, some reloot, and a CD. I don't know why but I have never borrowed CDs from my library even though it is free to do so.

Leonardo's Swans by Karen Essex - I have borrowed this because of a 1:1 readers challenge that I have coming up a bit later in the years. I have been challenged to read this book, and I have returned the favour with one of my favourites!

Tears of Pearl by Tasha Alexander - Reloot. Next book in the series.

Disco Boy by Dominic Knight - Another reloot. I started this during readathon, and I am enjoying it a lot!

Dreamfever by Karen Marie Moning - I think this a reloot - can't remember. Next book in the Fever series.

Emma Vol 2 by Kaoru Mori - I read the first book in the series during readathon, so then requested this one.

Lament by Maggie Stiefvater - It is fair to say it isn't very often that a book trailer influences me to buy a book, but seeing Maggie Stiefvater's trailer for her latest book (not this one) certainly made me hunt down her books. This one was available at the library so I requested it.

Gale Force by Rachel Caine - reloot. Next book in the Weather Warden series for me.

One of the Boys by Katy Perry (CD) I knew that I liked the singles from this album so I thought I would borrow it to hear the rest of it as well.

I thought it would be fun to include the book trailer from Maggie Stiefvater. It is long, but it is good.



  1. Loving all of your loot!! Dreamfever was excellent!!

    here's my loot:

  2. I really liked Leonardo's Swans. For added interest, the painting that has been in the news, the one that they think is a Da Vinci painting...well, her character is in the story. You can check out my review here:

  3. I'm curious to see what you think of Leonardo's Swans. I read Essex's Stealing Athena and enjoyed it quite a bit, but I haven't gotten to any of her other work. I meant to read Swans for the Art History Challenge but got sidetracked. Oddly enough. :-)


  4. The trailer is awesome! You got some great loot too. :-)

  5. Oh my heck I am laughing so hard. My kids think I'm a big ole weirdo but that is okay that was great. Love your blog even if I am a little light on the comments. :)

  6. oh and I am stealing your video that is just way to awesome not to share.

  7. Great loot. Love the cover of Lament.

  8. Ha! I saw that vid a while ago, and couldn't resist taking up what I saw as a challenge, hehe... result of that is here -

    I'm going to go do that loot post right now, I just went to the library yesterday!

  9. Some of these look like really great reads! You got a lot of good stuff there, I hope you enjoy it all!

  10. I love that video. Too funny.

    And you've reminded me that all of Rachel Caine's recent books are in my TBR pile, even though I really, really like them. Must dig them out.

  11. I love the title and cover of Leonardo's Swans. Not so sure about the squids idea but happy reading. My post is up.

  12. I really want to read the Emma series, but my library has 2-4 and not the first book. Might have to break down and buy it!

  13. I think if I am ever to try a graphic novel series, I will try the Emma one. Looks so sweet :-)

  14. I really enjoyed LAMENT. I hope you do, too. Maggie is uber creative, isn't she?
