Library Loot: November 17 to 23

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!

What loot did you get this week?


  1. I def want to read Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist. Let me know how you find it!

  2. I really liked English Passengers, which I read before I started blogging in 2007. You wonder how I can remember? Because I found it on this list of favorite books, posted shortly after I began my blog:

  3. Hi Bonnie! I assumed that you had a spreadsheet or something. My spreadsheets go back to 2004! I am glad to hear that you enjoyed English Passengers.

  4. English Passengers looks really good.
    I received The Rose of Sebastopol from the Book Depository this week (very cheap at $4.80). I don't hold out hope that I'll receive Bright Young Things from my library this year!
    Saying that, I'll be picking up some more work related books from the work library this week (love the librarians there, so helpful).

  5. Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist has been on my wish list for a long time. Enjoy your books!

  6. Post done, as promised. :-)

    The English Passengers is really good. Not a cheerful read but excellent.

  7. I have a copy of Outback Station staring at me. Holler when you are ready. That said, I'm planning on looting more Emma Drummond books very soon. I seem to be addicted :)

  8. I have been really interested in reading Outback since I saw your other post, and have been waiting for the right time to buy a copy for myself. I think now is the right time! I hope you enjoy all your new library loot!

  9. Great loot this week! Happy Reading!!

  10. I enjoyed Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist but I loved the movie too. Enjoy your loot!

  11. I have been meaning to read Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist. Can't wait to hear what you think of it!

  12. Very diverse collection Marg. I have to be careful I still have some review book to read. Outback station might pique my interest though

  13. I usually just dash in to pick up holds, too, but this week I did some browsing! I've still got to read Kelly Armstrong!

  14. Well hey, we both have a David Levithan/Rachel Cohn book this week! Creeeeepy! (Well, more like coincidental, but still.)
