Library Loot: May 26 to June 1

Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Eva and myself 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!

In last week's Library Loot post I mentioned that I hadn't picked any thing up but I did have a few items waiting for me. This week, you see all of those items!

Tomorrow When the War Began by John Marsden - There's a couple of Australian authors who I am constantly told I should read, and John Marsden. I was inspired to finally request this book after a conversation on Twitter with Maree from Just Add Books.

Angelology by Danielle Trussoni - Reloot. I wanted to read this so badly, but never got to it. This was touted as the next big book, but doesn't seem to have taken off quite in the way that was expected, at least not around the blogs that I read.

The Wordy Shipmates by Sarah Vowell - I saw this mentioned on a couple of Teaser Tuesday posts, and thought it sounded like lots of fun. It also ties in nicely with the novel that I am reading at the moment.

The Vampire Diaries: The Reunion by L J Smith - The fourth and final book in the original Vampire Diaries series.

The Various Flavours of Coffee by Anthony Cappella - Writing a review recently for one of his earlier books, and seeing the details for his next one, made me realise that I still hadn't read this release!

Jamie's Food Revolution by Jamie Oliver - About six weeks or so ago I seriously overdosed on the TV series that accompanies this book. I have only had a quick flick through but I do think I am going to go out and buy this one!

Young Victoria - I borrowed this DVD a few weeks ago but didn't get to watch it, so I have borrowed it again.

The Land of the Lost - My son wanted to watch this one and so I requested it for him. Now I think he is saying that he has already seen it!

What items did you get from the library this week? Leave your link in Mr Linky so we can all come and check out your loot.


  1. I watched Jamie Oliver's show as well and thought it was fascinating. I'm on the waiting list at the library for this book - but I do have a couple of his older ones out. They have some good stuff!!

  2. I really want to read Angelology, but my library hasn't stocked it yet. And now that you mention it, I don't think I've seen a single review of it on the blogs I follow. Enjoy your loot!

  3. Young Victoria's in my queue as well. I'm looking forward to hearing what you think!
    Still love the cover of Angelology!

  4. Wonderful stuff there! I just recently bought o copy of The Wordy Shipmates, but have yet to read it. It looks like a wonderful book, so I'll be interested to hear what you think. I have also heard conflicting things about Angelology, so I do hope you enjoy it as well!

  5. Great mix this week. Looking forward to your thoughts on Angelology

  6. I'm currently reading Angelology... It's taking a while due to it's size and the fact that I dont get enough reading time. It's interesting, though I think it could be easy to get lost as the chapters are narrated by different characters.

  7. ohmigosh! Tomorrow When the War Began was one of my most favorite books as a tween! that whole series is pretty awesome alltogether actually.

    i also heard big things about Angelology before it came out, bought it with a gift certificate, but haven't heard anything positive since. i haven't been tempted to take it off my TBR and open it to find out myself yet, so im interested to hear what you think!

  8. I reviewed Angelology this week - I enjoyed it immensely but I wouldn't say it's 'the next big one'.
    Will be interested in what you think of the Capella - I borrowed it a while ago but it went back unread.
    Happy reading!

  9. I got The Various Flavors of Coffee from the library this week, too! Finished it yesterday -- it's a decent read, perfect for coffee lovers :D

  10. I have the entire John Mardsden series on my TBR shelves just waiting for me. I've heard such good things about the books ..

  11. I'm a day late, but linked up my loot anyway! :D

    I remember loving the tv series "Land of the Lost" when I was a kid. LOVED it. I hope you enjoy the film. :)

  12. I really liked the Marsden books. Let me know if they sound properly Australian to you. I've been eyeing The Wordy Shipmates but haven't committed yet.
