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!
I wonder why it seems such a surprise how quickly time passes? It's nearly February already! Where does the time go? Since the beginning of the year we have had a number of new participants join in on Library Loot. If you haven't already, please sure to stop by and say hi to the following bloggers:
Bonnie from Red Lady's Reading Room
Cat from Tell Me a Story
Colleen from Colleen's Reads
Cathy from Greyt Thoughts
Natalie from Reading2Learn
Natasha from Maw Books
Emily from Books, The Universe and Everything
JS Peyton from Biblioaddict
Trish from Trisha's Book Blog
If you would like to join in on Library Loot, just leave your link on this week's Mr Linky so that we can all come by and check out your loot!
My loot this week is a mixture of new loot and reloot, including a couple of books that I am really looking forward to reading:
Emperor: The Gates of Rome by Conn Iggulden (Reloot) - I really enjoyed the books in the Genghis Khan series by Iggulden, so now I am going back to read his earlier series about Caesar.
The Oak Apple by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles (Reloot) - The next book in the Morland Dynasty series.
Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier - Juliet Marillier is one of those authors I have been meaning to read for ages. Every time I read a review for one of her books, it is always very positive and I finally got around to putting her on request. I originally requested another one of her books, but Angie from Angieville insisted that I really needed to start with this book!
Roses by Leila Meacham - Until a few weeks ago I hadn't anything about this book, then I saw it mentioned on the USA Today bookpages, and then I saw it mentioned all over the place! A sprawling saga set in the South sounds exactly like something I would enjoy!
Betrayal of the Blood Lily by Lauren Willig - The latest book in the Pink Carnation series, this time set in India! I am looking forward to reading this one a lot, as I have heard good things about it!
So there you have my loot for this week! I am guaranteed to have more loot next week. I currently have six items on hold waiting to be picked up, but only four spaces on my library card. Not quite sure how I am going to juggle that, but I am sure I will manage.
