Library Loot - March 10 to 16

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 feel a bit like a cheat posting library loot for this week - not because I didn't pick up any loot, but because I already have 7 items waiting to be picked up! We won't talk about the fact that I don't really have enough room on my card to actually check them out, but it will work itself out I am sure!

Here's what I did pick up:

Master: An Erotic Novel of the Count of Monte Cristo by Colette Gale: It always surprises me when I find an erotic romance at the library. I don't know why. This is a pseudonym used by author Colleen Gleason who is the author of the Gardella Vampire Chronicles

The Knife of Letting Go by Patrick Ness: I have heard such good things about this book, but then I read a bad review, and I thought, well, time to see for myself how it is!

Sabriel by Garth Nix: (Reloot) Now that I have finished reading all of the Keys to the Kingdom books by this author it is time to move onto some of his other books!

South Pacific and Micronesia (Lonely Planet Guide): I had borrowed a Lonely Planet Guide to the Cook Islands a few weeks ago, but I thought I should at least consider some of the other Pacific Islands for a holiday destination.

Mort by Terry Pratchett - The next read for the Terry Pratchett challenge, and the first featuring Death as the main character. I can't remember if I have read this one before or not, but I think I have.

Divided in Death by J D Robb - The next book in the excellent In Death series.

The Sharing Knife: Horizon by Lois McMaster Bujold - the fourth and final book (as far as I know) in the Sharing Knife series.

What loot did you get this week? Leave your link in Mr Linky so we can check out all your lovely loot!


  1. I really enjoyed the series that starts with Sabriel! I haven't read Garth Nix's other series yet, but that one was good. And I did read The Knife of Never Letting Go, which I liked but wasn't totally in love with like the rest of the blogosphere.

    I might actually have a loot this week! Not yet though. Will come back when I do.

  2. I've heard so many good things about Te Knife of Letting Go. I'll have to keep an eye out for Colette Gale's books. I like the Gardella Vampire Chronicles.

  3. Oooh, enjoy MORT! I'm so glad you hosted the Pratchett challenge, as I LOVED The Wee Free Men :-)

  4. I've heard Sabriel recommended before - hope you enjoy it!

    The erotic Monte Cristo romance looks interesting too!

  5. Love love love Sabriel. Hope you enjoy it too!

  6. Oh, how I love the Abhorsen trilogy! Sabriel got me hooked, but I think Lirael is my favorite. Enjoy!

  7. Master looks interesting! I don't have any loot this week, but I'm lucky, my library does not impose limits on books checked out!

  8. Mort is among my favorite Pratchett books. I'm like you re the negative reviews; they often inspire me to read a book more so than dozens of positive reviews. My loot is here.

  9. ~laughing hard~

    I no longer feel bad about my library exploits. It's good to know someone else is hindered by the lending policies. Which brings me to something I saw on your list. The title by Colette Gale looks intriguing! I can't wait to read your comments.


  10. Terry Pratchett, J.D. Robb and Lois McMaster Bujold all in one week? That's a great week for library loot! Happy reading!

  11. I have heard great things about The Knife of Never Letting Go, so I hope you enjoy it! My husband just finished Mort and loved it as well, so I am encouraged about how I will respond to that one as well. Great loot this week!

  12. I hope you enjoy The Knife of Never Letting Go as much as I did!

  13. ooh, the Pacific islands! Also, I'm curious about Sabriel.

  14. Oh, Marg, The Knife of Never Letting Go is amazing. It moves with such a speed that it actually left me breathless, literally speaking. Not all like that kind of pace, but I am curious to know how you like it.

    I worked in the travelbusiness (I still do but with another job description) little over a year ago, and one of the things I did was writing up the company's advertizing for our travels to Micronesia. I would love to go there one day, maybe to Yap or Palau - unfortunately it takes forever to go down there from it is unbelievably expensive. Looking forward to hear if you travel to Micronesia :-)

  15. Hey there!
    I'm Sara here from The Saturday Network. You got some great books this week. I haven't heard of any of them, but I'll be looking into them.

    Btw I'm loving your blog :)

  16. Loved Knife of Never Letting Go and the sequel. Impatiently waiting for the third!

  17. Wow, Marg! Your list (& some of the comments!) have me adding to my library list already. And I still have too many books to read!! Aargh!! =)
