Library Loot - February 18 to 25

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's Library Loot could be subtitled "The Romance Edition" as I seem to have got most of the romances that I had requested all come in on hold at once!

Eva is back from hiatus and will have the Mr Linky this week.

Here's my loot for this week:

A Notorious Love by Sabrina Jeffries - I am now at the point with Sabrina Jeffries where I have read all of the complete series that the library has, and now I am just working my way through the bits and pieces. After that I will have to try and find the books that are missing!

The Truth About Lord Stoneville by Sabrina Jeffries - Luckily while I am working through the backlist that my library has, they are still ordering the new books that she comes out with. This is the first book in the newest series.

Emma Vol 3 by Kaoru Mori
- This is the next book in the Emma manga series.

Summer Knight by Jim Butcher - Book number 5 in the Harry Dresden series.

A Duke of Her Own by Eloisa James - Next book in the Desperate Duchess series.

Lonely Planet: Rarotonga & The Cook Islands - I am planning to take a trip next year. It will be the first time I have been out of Australia for 11 and a half years by then, and I will so be ready for an overseas holiday. I am thinking about a South Pacific island somewhere, and one of my friends has good things to say about Cook Islands so I am starting to have a look and see if that might be somewhere for my friends and I to go.

I also ended up buying a couple of books for 10 cents each tonight. There was no way I could walk past the table of books for sale and leave an Elizabeth Chadwick book there, even though I have already read it, or a Dorothy Dunnett book, which I may never read! So now I need to find room for Children of Destiny and To Lie with Lions on my bookshelf!


  1. Ooh, I loved A Duke of Her Own! Best book in that series, IMO.

  2. My husband is reading the Jim Butcher series. Here's my library loot.

  3. I've got my fingers and toes crossed for your trip!

    And your loot looks like great fun. :)

  4. It looks you have a variety of good books. I have read a few books in The Dresden Files series. They were good reads.

  5. I love, love, love the Jim Butcher series. In fact, I believe that I'm on the book after Summer Knight...I think. LOL!

  6. I love "romance editions" of library loot! ;)

    I recently bought the new Sabrina Jeffries, but haven't gotten the chance to pick it up yet.

    Have fun planning next year's vacation. I would love to visit the South Pacific Islands too! Can't wait to hear where you decide to go.

    I always check out the used books for sale when I go to the library, too. They usually have a ton of romance paperbacks which makes for fun browsing.

  7. Oh, Emma is one of my favorite manga! I hope you are enjoying it :)

  8. Looks like some great library loot this week! The Jim Butcher book is great!

  9. Enjoy the books. Looks like you've got lots of fun reading to come there.

  10. Ooh, the agency I'm working for represents Eloisa James. One of the partners at the agency (Eloisa's agent, Kim) recommended her books to me when I told her I was an historical fiction blogger.

  11. Lots of good stuff there! I hope you enjoy them all and have a lot of happy reading time!
