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!
Eva's back! Yay! That means that this week's Mr Linky will be over at A Striped Armchair so head on over to share your loot.
I have had another pretty big week loot wise (for me anyway). Here's what I got.
Jaran by Kate Elliott - Amanda from Desert Book Chick recently talked about this novel as a must read sci-fi. I am not a huge reader of this genre, but it sounded interesting enough to capture my attention.
The Oak Apple by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles - Reloot, yes again. This is the next book in the Morland Dynasty series and I really do want to read it.
Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier - Another reloot.
The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters - Reloot. I haven't read Sarah Waters yet. I have borrowed her books a few times but keep on having to return it unread.
Never Love a Lawman by Jo Goodman - Despite the fact that Jo Goodman has quite a large backlist, my library only has a few of her books. Not too long ago I borrowed Beyond a Wicked Kiss, but even just reading the first pages it was obvious that the book was part of a series, and I can't stand reading books out of order. I therefore returned that book and instead borrowed this one.
The Strangely Beautiful Tale of Miss Percy Parker by Leanna Renee Hieber - When this book first came out I checked the library catalogue but there was no listing. I am not sure what made me check again, but now the book is in so I had to borrow it.
Island of the Swans by Ciji Ware - I started reading A Cottage by the Sea earlier this week, and before I was more than 50 pages in I was checking the library catalogue to see what other books they had by this author.
Coventry by Helen Humphreys - This is another book where it caught my eye when it was first released but I checked the catalogue and it wasn't there. I am glad it is now.
The King of Attolia by Megan Whalen Turner - Reloot again. This time I will actually read it!
