Library Loot: April 27 to May 3

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!
Our local libraries were closed for 5 days over the Easter break and I have to tell you it was torture! When I went there early this morning it was apparent that I wasn't the only one who was missing the library as it was very, very busy!

This week I have decided to post about my reloot in particular a bit differently. Normally I put a small explanation as to why I am borrowing each book, but I am only going to do that with new loot from now on!

So here's my new loot:

Every Secret Thing by Emma Cole - Emma Cole is a pen name for Susanna Kearsley, so I just had to borrow this one. As soon as I have read this one though, that is it in terms of the books by her that I can access from the library!

Farewell to Lancashire by Anna Jacobs - I love a good saga, and this one is set in my home town of Perth, and is historical fiction, so ticks a lot of my reading boxes!

Bereft by Chris Womersley - This is the only one of the three novels shortlisted for the Miles Franklin Prize, which is possibly the most prestigious of Australia's literature prizes.


Claire is hosting the Mr Linky this week, so head on over to add your link so that we can come and see what loot you picked up from your library this week!


  1. Looks like you got some good ones. Happy reading!

  2. Looks like a good pull! I really want to get started on reading some of Lauren Willig's books!

  3. Great selection - and thank you for reminding me that Farewell to Lancashire is currently sitting on my TBR shelf!!

  4. Bereft looks really interesting. I will be interested in seeing what you think of it.

  5. No loot for me this week. I'm hoping to reduce my pile first! Enjoy your loot!

  6. I didn't like the Emma Cole book quite as much as her Susanna Kearsley books, but it was still good. Plus, she actually includes Canada. :)

  7. The good about the after Easter library crowd is all the books on the returns shelf.
    Haven't heard of Farewell to Lancashire before - must check it out.

    Happy reading!

  8. I have been in the mood for romance lately so all three of your reloot books sound good to me :) Hope you get the chance to read them this time!

  9. Samantha, always happy to talk romance if you want to!

    Cat, Anna Jacobs is apparently a very popular author especially in the UK.

    Kailana, we will see I guess.

    Linda, I should have a no loot week, but I am too addicted to the library to be able to achieve it I think.

    Zibilee, I am not even really sure what Bereft is about!

    Book Gatherer, have you read Anna Jacobs before?

    Meg, Lauren Willig's books are a lot of fun, although some of them are better than others.

    Thanks for stopping by Julie!

  10. I just read The Winter Sea by Susanna Kearsley and would like to read her Emma Cole books as well.
    I'm intrigued by Farewell to Lancashire because I don't think I've ever read historical fiction set in Australia.
