Library Loot: August 25 to 31

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!

Yay! Library Loot! This week I got a combination of books and music, but before I share that, I just wanted to remind you that we are currently looking for a new Library Loot button. If you have graphic skills that you wouldn't mind using for Library Loot purposes, then all the details can be found here.

You may notice that my loot is heavy on romance this week. It is interesting how some times it works out that way! Here are the books that I borrowed this week:

Wicked Intentions by Elizabeth Hoyt - I have thoroughly enjoyed all the books I have read from this author, and I expect that this first book in a new series not to be any different.

Unholy Ghosts by Stacia Kane - I heard some talk on Twitter predominantly about a man called Terrible. Once I found out which book it was from I had to borrow the first book in the series.

Dream Chaser by Sherrilyn Kenyon - Next book in the Dark Hunter series. I am working through this series in anticipation of reading Ash's book very soon!

I have been listening to the two albums that I picked up all this week and whilst they are both very different, they are both very enjoyable reads!

April Uprising by John Butler Trio - I watched Who Do You Think You Are? about John Butler, and it was a fascinating story, especially when he ended up in Eastern Europe with his family having been involved in a famous uprising, and as soon as I saw the title I knew that that experience had a least provided some inspiration for the album. Here is the song Revolution:

For Your Entertainment by Adam Lambert - I like both of the singles off of this album, so I wanted to listen to the whole album. I want to get Whataya Want From Me as my ringtone, if only because it would entertain me every time the phone rung!

What loot did you get from the library this week. Leave your link below so we can all come and see!


  1. I had only one loot this week but I read it and returned it faster than I could do a LL post :)

  2. I have not heard of any of these books, but I will be interested to hear your take on them!!

  3. OMG yessssss UNHOLY GHOSTS!!!! I read and reviewed the series as a whole. LOVED it! Hope you enjoy it just as much! And if you find yourself afflicted with the Terrible fever...there's a support group on Goodreads for that ;) Can't wait to hear what you think!!!

    I don't have a loot for this week since I was on vacation but I bet I'll have a HUGE haul next week when my vacation hold clears and all my reserves start pouring in!

  4. Great loot. Love Sherrilyn Kenyon. Enjoy!

  5. I love your loot!!! Hope that you enjoy them!! Kenyon is a good author!!!

    Here is my Loot

    Happy Reading!

  6. Looks like some very entertaining loot. Hope you enjoy them.

  7. I'm not familiar with any of these, but I hope you enjoy your loot!

  8. Sorry, I think I did something wrong! I wanted to say that what I brought home was a book by another writer (besides me) about the West: Kaki Warner's Pieces of Sky.

  9. Great loot! I've read and reviewed Unholy Ghosts, I ran pretty hot and cold with it, at times I couldn't put it down, then I was completely over it, and then into it again. Chess annoyed me at times, but I enjoyed her relationship with Terrible. Looking forward to reading your thoughts!

  10. My library loot for this week includes Franklin's Mistrees of the Art of Death, which I got after you mentioned it. I can't put it down. Thanks so much.

  11. I will be back in the Loot next week, Marg. I'm already salivating at the thought of a trip to the library :).... (that's me dribbling!).

    And... here's some moral support for War and Peace: you can do it! I know you can!

  12. I really should start reading my library books :) Can't get off my kindle, instead!

    I really enjoyed reading your blog as a follower for the last few months, and thought you really deserved this "Lovely Blog" blogger award - Blog Awards

    hope you like it!

  13. I want to read Unholy Ghosts myself as I've heard lots of good things! I can't wait to hear your thoughts on it. I love Adam Lambert's songs as well...I should probably get the cd myself.

  14. I like Elizabeth Hoyt, too. My husband's a fan of the John Butler Trio. Happy reading and listening!

  15. I was soooo thrilled to be able to get a copy of Mockingjay, although I've pre-ordered my copy but it hasn't arrived!
