Library Loot - March 3 to 9

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!

Eva has Mr Linky this week, so be sure to drop by and share the link to your loot!

The Yellow House by Patricia Falvey - I enjoy reading fiction set in Ireland so when I saw a giveaway of this book over at Celtic Lady's blog, I was quick to add it to my TBR list. Luckily for me, the library already had it on order, and so I am the first to read it! This will be my first read for the Ireland Reading Challenge.

13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson - I can't remember where I first heard about this book, but it was a couple of years ago at least, and I have wanted to read it ever since! I have checked my library catalogue several times, but it was never there....until now!

The Crimson Rooms by Katherine McMahon - I liked The Alchemist's Daughter by this author, but wasn't so keen on The Rose of Sebastopol. Giving this author another go.

Belong to Me by Marisa de los Santos - Really enjoyed Love Walked In, so was keen to get this book as soon as I saw it was in the library catalogue.

The King's Daughter by Christie Dickason (reloot)

Dreamy Days at the Hotel Existence by Powderfinger - My trip through the Powderfinger back catalogue continues. In addition to the album, this packaging included a DVD. Last week I shared the first single off of Powderfinger's latest album. This week I bring you a live version of one their older songs as featured on the DVD, These Days, with guest performers Missy Higgings, Nic Cester (from Jet) and indigenous performer Kev Carmody. Add in a location right near the Opera House with the bridge in the background and you have an awesome performance!


  1. I think I'm going to join the 2-book level of the Ireland challenge, but I haven't decided what my second book should be! Lol Any ideas?

  2. Belong To Me is on my tbr list. Great loot!

  3. I haven't read any of these but they all look good. Hope you enjoy!

  4. Great loot - I really want to read The Yellow House but no sign of it in my library as yet.
    I didn't like Rose of Sebastopol much either and will be interested in your thoughts on this one.

  5. I really liked 13 Little Blue Envelopes (she's writing a sequel!!)... but then I really like Maureen's writing. :-)

  6. Eva, I have Galway Bay here still to read so that I will probably be my second book. Or Marian Keyes.

    Linda, I am looking forward to that one!

    I do too, Samantha

    Cat, I was surprised that my library got it so quickly! Have you read The Water Horse by Julia Gregson? Similar setting to Rose of Sebastopol but better book.

    Melissa, this will be my first time reading Maureen Johnson.

  7. I really enjoyed 13 Little Blue Envelopes when I read it last year. Hope you enjoy it too :)

  8. Belong to Me was really good. I read it a while ago. :)

    Enjoy your loot!

  9. I haven't read any of these titles. Actually I hadn't even heard of any of them before. Here's to finding new books!

  10. They all sound so good! Great loot!

  11. Interesting selection of books for you this week. I'm running a day late with my loot post. I hope you stop by.

  12. I really enjoyed Belong to Me...hope you do, too!

  13. Your loot looks great! Happy reading!

  14. 13 Little Blue Envelopes was cute. Hope you enjoy it as well.

  15. Ooh! The King's Daughter and The Yellow House look like wonderful reads and I am interested in reading them both! I will have to check back to see what you think of them. Happy Reading!

  16. I was really happy to find your meme "Library Loot". I can't wait to participate next week.
    I was wondering, how fast a reader are you? Do you read all the books you get from the library? Or do you, read some and take some back?

  17. Debbie, I quite regularly return books to the library unread! Looking forward to seeing your first loot post. Don't forget to add your link to Mr Linky so we can all see what you have!

    Zibilee, I hope I get to read them!
