Library Loot: November 24 to 30

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!

Claire is hosting Mr Linky this week so head on over to share your loot!

I need to be quick tonight, so here's my loot

Divided in Death by J D Robb - yes again! I can't believe I have only read one In Death book this year. I swear I have borrowed this one at least three times. Maybe this time I will reread one.

The Black Pearl by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles - Another reloot. I am currently part way through a non Morland dynasty book from this author.

The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa - I've decided to see what all the fuss is about this series!

Soulless by Gail Carriger - More reloot! I am determined to read it this time.

Cake: A Global History by Nicola Humble - Thanks to a comment on a post I was directed to a podcast which featured this author talking about her book! I thought it would be interesting to read it, particularly given how little non-fiction I actually read. Turns out this is part of a whole series about all sorts of different foods and drinks. I might end up reading more!


  1. I've heard good things about Cake and am still intrigued by Soulless though steampunk is not usually my thing.

    Enjoy your loot!

  2. There's a whole book about the history of cake? That's wonderful!

  3. Oooh! I great selection there! My mother is crazy about the J.D. Robb books and is almost at the end of the series. She has charged me to find something similar for her to read next, but I've got nothing so far! Also, I got Soulless last year for Christmas and haven't read it as of yet, but I am hoping to! And lastly, I love cake, and am going to have to check out this book very soon. Thanks for sharing all your great loot with us!

  4. Ooh, I can't wait to see your thoughts on The Iron Daughter, I adored it and cannot wait to start The Iron Queen. Happy reading sweetie!

  5. Cake sounds interesting. I love food nonfiction. Soulless is still on my list to read. Enjoy!

  6. ooh,Read the Soulless first! It definitely is worth it. I adore the funny narrative of this series.

  7. Aradia, I know I need to read it!

    Linda, I haven't read much foody non-fiction. There are loads of books in the series too!

    Thanks Rowena. I have heard lots of good things about it.

    Zibilee, I am not sure that there is something like JD Robb. Luckily she keeps on writing them so not too long to wait for each new one. If she wanted historical could try Ariana Franklin or Deanna Raybourn.

    Erin, might have to eat some while I am reading Cake!

    Claire, I haven't really read much steampunk, although I guess Cassie Clare's last book was steampunk. I seem to be accumulating it but not reading a lot.

  8. Soulless was hilarious, or I found it hilarious anyway. I have a blog award for you here.

  9. I love the cover of Soulless. I got Bright Young Things by Anna Godbersen this week- reading an ebook at the moment, will possibly start on the weekend.

  10. I have seen some of the books in the food series pop up in reviews and recommendations. I'll be interested to know what it is like, as I am quite interested in food history. Where did you come across the podcast btw? (i'm off to look for it myself now, but just in case I don't find it).

  11. I found it! Radio National....they have had some good discussions, but I hadn't checked their archives for a while, so thanks for the reminder! Also downloaded the Milk and Caviar ones. I have Out of the East by Paul Freedman on the computer too, listening to that made me buy the book!
