Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Claire from The Captive Reader and Marg from The Adventures of an Intrepid Reader 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!
It's my turn to host the Mr Linky this week, so after you have finished checking out all my loot, then please, feel free to add your link so that we can come and have a look at yours.
I did something a bit unusual tonight. I actually took books off the shelf myself. *gasp*. Normally I only spend a few minutes in the library because I just pick up the books that are waiting for me on the holds shelf and then leave.
Here's the loot that I got this week:
English Passengers by Matthew Kneale - This book was mentioned over at Goodreads, and seeing as the library had it, I thought I would borrow and see how it is. It would also mean that I would actually read a book for my sadly neglected perpetual Booker challenge!
Outback Station by Aaron Fletcher - I finished reading the first book in this series, Outback, last week. Whilst I did have some qualms, the story was definitely interesting so I will continue on with the series. By the way, does anyone know anything about the author of this book, Aaron Fletcher. We haven't been able to find anything out about him at all
The Awakening by Kelley Armstrong - This is one of the books I actually picked up off the shelf myself. I just finished reading The Summoning which is the first book in this trilogy on the train on the way home tonight and I though seeing as I was at the library I might as well request the book while I was there, but then it turned out that the book was on the shelves, so I picked it up myself!
Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan - I have been seeing reviews of the latest book from this writing duo, Dash and Lily's Book of Dares, and it looks like such fun that I want to read it even though I haven't read these authors before. My library doesn't have that book yet, so I thought I would start with this one instead. I picked this one up myself too!
