Library Loot: 11 to 16 August

Before we get into Library Loot proper for this week, just a reminder that we are looking for someone who is not graphically challenged (like me!) to create a new Library Loot badge.

Full details are available at Claire's blog. Now onto Library Loot for this week.

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 pretty happy with my loot this week, as it includes some books that I really, really want to read!

Here's my loot:

Season  of Storms by Susanna Kearsley - I have really enjoyed everything I have read from this author, so I am excited at the prospect of reading another book from her.

Soulless by Gail Carriger -  I've been thinking about reading this one for a while now, so I finally requested it from the library.

Mr Rosenblum's List by Natasha Solomons - I added this to my list as soon as I started hearing people rave about it, but it has taken a while to come in at the library.

Wyrd Sisters by Terry Pratchett - Another Inter Library Loan. My library seems to be a bit hit and miss in terms of having the early Pratchett's in stock.

Gunshot Road by Adrian Hyland - I really enjoyed Diamond Dove when I read it a while ago, so I am looking forward to reading this one.

Ravishing in Red by Madeleine Hunter - the first book in this author's current series. It has taken ages for this book to come in.

The Marsh King's Daughter by Elizabeth Chadwick - My son borrowed this one. Okay, no he didn't. I borrowed it but I used his card because mine is all full! I've told him to make sure that he takes it back on time though.

What loot did you get this week? Leave your link below so that we can all come and have a look and see what you got.


  1. I've seen a few people have Soulless on their TBR/loot lists. Hope you enjoy it, sounds like you have a great library!

  2. I've seen a few people have Soulless on their TBR/loot lists. Hope you enjoy it, sounds like you have a great library!

  3. I've seen a few people have Soulless on their TBR/loot lists. Hope you enjoy it, sounds like you have a great library!

  4. I've been looking forward to Mr Rosenblum since I first heard of it back in January. However, my library still doesn't have a copy!

    I'd never heard of Soulless until Carolyn at A Few of My Favourite Books reviewed it recently but it sounds interesting. Hope you enjoy!

  5. Enjoy Soulless, I certainly did :D

  6. I got a copy of Soulless for Christmas, but I haven't read it yet. I hope you enjoy it!

  7. Enjoy your loot, Marg!

    No new loot for me this week...I'll soon be having withdrawals... lol

  8. I love The Marsh King's Daughter, I've read it at least two times.

  9. Great loot, Marg! I've had Soulless on my back-burner-wish list for a while, that's why the library is so great, I'm not *sure* I'll like it, but it's free to try from the lib! And I hadn't heard of (or maybe just don't remember) Madeleine Hunter's series, but it looks like something I'd enjoy, so thanks for the heads up.

  10. Nice pile of books, Marg. I have to add Gunshot Road to my tbr list. I liked Diamond Dove when I read it last year. It was published in the US as Moonlight Downs. Thanks for hosting Library Loot!

  11. It was certainly interesting for me to read that blog. Thanks for it. I like such topics and anything connected to this matter. I would like to read more on that blog soon.

  12. Soulless has been on my tbr list for a while. Enjoy your loot!

  13. LOL @ using your son's card....totally worth it though for The Marsh King's Daughter!!

  14. A no Loot for me this week.I dropped mine back though.

  15. Mr. Rosenblum!!! Hoorah!!! I hope you love it (and Jack) as much as I did. It's excellent.

    And I really enjoyed Soulless too. I know some didn't, but I really liked the tongue-in-cheekness of it.

    Enjoy your books!

  16. I am hoping that I do too Heather!

    Marshalslion, I need to take some books back. My card it full!

    Michele, I feel a little guilty. I mean really, how many library books do I need out, but I had to get it seeing it was there.

    Linda and Blodeuedd, I hope it is good!

    Thanks for stopping by Hilary.

    Gavin, I have heard such good things about it. I am sure that you won't be disappointed if you add it to your TBR list.

    Lusty Reader, I have enjoyed the Madeleine Hunter books that I have read so I am looking forward to that one.

    Misfit, my slow stroll through EC's backlist continues.

    Leya, I would be having withdrawals as well.

    Zibilee, I do that all the time. The last book I finished was one that I had bought 5 years before.

    Claire, I have a few books on my list that there is no sign of on my library catalogue. Very frustrating.

    Sam, I am very lucky. My library is pretty good.

  17. I have Souless out from the library right now too, must get around to it before it's due back. :) Looking forward to reading your thoughts on it.

  18. I've heard a lot about Souless. Not sure it's my cup of tea though. Great haul! Enjoy.

  19. Like you, I also have the book by Gail Carriger in my TBR stack, but have been slow in getting to it. And I just started reading Mr Rosenblum's List/Mr. Rosenblum Dreams In English. So far, I am enthralled :-)

    When I read Susanna Kearsley's Season Of Storms a few years ago I enjoyed it but thought that tighter editing (serious page cutting!) would have improved the pacing. Still, I always find Kearsley's settings beautifully evocative, and the plot of SoS kept me curious and quite contented. I hope you will enjoy the book, too!

  20. I really liked Soulless and I also liked the second book of hers--I think it's called Changeless.
    I hope you like them as much.

  21. I haven't read any of your "loot" - but it looks great. Happy reading!

  22. I would really like to read Soulless. I wish my library carried Chadwick's titles :(

  23. I've heard so many good things about Souless. Enjoy your loot!
