Library Loot: June 23 to 29


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!
I haven't been reading many library books in the last week. I have been mainly reading two books that I own. I am sure that this decision is going to come back and haunt me later, but oh well. It wouldn't be the first, or hundred and first, time that I have had to reloot!

Here are the books I borrowed from the library this week:



Red Dust by Fleur McDonald - I have seen this author on Twitter. I haven't read a novel with an Australian rural setting for ages, so I thought I would give her a go. This book will count for the Aussie Author Challenge.



The Kingdom of Ohio by Mathew Flaming - This is a book I requested so that I could move forward on the Amy Einhorn challenge.




Tempting Evil by Keri Arthur - This is another Aussie author. I have read the first couple of books in this series so it is probably time to read the next one. (Reloot)




The Confession of Catherine de Medici by CW Gortner - This is one of the more highly anticipated releases for me this year. I was number 1 on the request list so that means a brand new book! Love it when that happens.



Savor the Moment by Nora Roberts - Another brand new book. This is the third in the Bride Quartet. I am looking forward to being able to curl up with this one night and just reading from beginning to end, and then closing the book with a sigh. That's the plan anyway!

So what loot did you get this week? Share the link to your Library Loot post in Mr Linky so we can all drop by and take a look.

  5. I like the look of the two Australian books you've borrowed. Might have to borrow Tempting Evil on my next snatch and grab at the library.

  6. Amanda, Tempting Evil is the third book in an urban fantasy series (vampires, werewolves etc) set in Melbourne. The first book is Full Moon Rising.

    Daphne, me too. I am sure I will.

    Lusty Reader, I am lucky in that my library orders in a whole heap of every NR book. Some times it just takes a while. I hope you do find them because they are very much enjoyable comfort reads.

    Zibilee, I do remember hearing a little bit about Kingdom of Ohio when it first came out, but not much since then.

    Thanks Linda.

    Tea, it is amazing that she writes so many really good quality books. I have no idea how she does it.

  8. Hi Marg! :)
    I have to go back and catch up on Keri Arthur's Riley Jensen series. I read the first 3.5 books and really enjoyed them. I don't know why I fell off that train!

    I really like Nora's Bride Quartet. I'm anxiously awaiting Parker's story! It should be another fun one! :)

    Enjoy your loot!!!

  13. while exploring these titles I discovered Flaming is an Oregon author. Portland even which is 40 some miles from where I grew up. I like what I've read about the story too and our library here in Southern Oregon has it so I've put it in my wishlist to order after I get home in August.

    my Monday reading roundup.
