I have the great pleasure of announcing that the new co-host of Library Loot is .....
Claire from The Captive Reader
I will let Claire formally introduce herself next week and that will be when she will host Mr Linky for the first time. In the mean time I wanted to publicly say thank you to the other people who volunteered to co-host. I was pleasantly surprised to get so many volunteers and it was really hard to choose between everyone!
Anyway, enough of the formalities.
Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Claire 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 am very excited about the two books that are waiting to be picked up from the library in the next couple of days, but I guess I should talk about the books that I picked up this week first!
Sizzling Sixteen by Janet Evanovich - The most recently released book in the Stephanie Plum series. I stopped buying the books at about book eleven in the series, and I don't regret that. I still like reading them, but not enough to actually want to consistently buy them.
The Dead of the Night by John Marsden - Book no. 2 in the Tomorrow series. I am really excited at the prospect of reading this one.
The Black Pearl by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles - The next book in the Morland Dynasty series. This one is set in one of my favourite eras to read about - The Restoration court of Charles II.
Duet by Kimberley Freeman - I remember looking at this book when it first came out, mainly because of the cover quote from Paullina Simons. I am not sure why I didn't pick it up. I was reminded about this author when Sarah from Reading the Past mentioned her upcoming US release. This was the book that was currently in, so I picked it up. It will also count for my Aussie Author challenge reads.
Goddess of the Sea by P C Cast - Now that I am up to date with the House of Night series, I thought it was time to read some other P C Cast novels. This is the first in this series. I actually own the second or third book. Not sure why given that I normally only like to buy whole series.
The Darkest Room: A Novel by Johan Theorin - I added this to my TBR list after Kerrie asked her readers what the best crime fiction title they had read this year was and this book came up trumps. A couple of weeks later and it won the CWA International Dagger award. I am looking forward to immersing myself in another Swedish crime nove.
Taste le Tour 2008 with Gabriele Gate - I posted a couple of Taste le Tour segments for my Weekend Cooking post last weekend. Not sure when I am going to get to watch this but I am going to try!
