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!
I made a very last minute visit to the library tonight. I wasn't sure if I was going to make it or not. Part of the reason is that I knew that I had 8 items to pick up, 3 spaces on my card, and only 4 items to take back, so there was no way known I was going to be able to pick them all up.
When I went to the counter I told the librarian that I had left one item on the hold shelf because I didn't have enough space, to which he replied they were just guidelines, and so he let me borrow them all. There's every chance they are going to regret letting me know that they aren't rules as such!
Here's the loot I go this week:
Provocative in Pearls by Madeline Hunter - The second book in the Rarest Blooms series.
Pyramids by Terry Pratchett - the next Discworld book.
Brown Skin Blue by Belinda Jeffrey - I read an awesome review of this book at Inkcrush, and had to request this book straight away.
The Red Necklace by Sally Gardner - I won a copy of the second book in this series last month, but can't possibly read a series out of order, so had to borrow this one to read first.
The Savage Sky by Emma Drummond - This author was mentioned in the Sweeping Sagas group at Goodreads, so I thought I would try out the one and only book that the library has by this author. The tagline is Allies in War, Bitter Rivals in Life - sounds like exactly my kind of book!
A Secret Affair by Mary Balogh - The final book in the Huxtable quintet.
The Princess Bride DVD - After finishing the book, the next obvious step is to watch the movie.
Spooks Season 7 - I am watching this for one reason, and one reason only:
