Library Loot: May 25 to 31

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 be sure to head over and add your link so that we can have a look at the loot that you got.

Here's my loot for this week:

The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan - I have been meaning to try this series for the longest time!

My Husband's Sweethearts by Bridget Asher - I first heard of Bridget Asher as a result of her latest books The Provence Cure for the BrokenHearted. My library doesn't however have that book yet, so I decided to read the books that were there.

The Prince of Mist by Carlos Ruiz Zafon - I read the follow up book to this the other day inadvertently. I don't like reading out of order, but now that I have I need to go back and read the first book.

22 Britannia Road by Amanda Hodgkinson - I first heard about this book from a publicist. I turned it down because I have too much here to read already, but then it was on the library catalogue, so I ended up requesting it anyway.



  1. Just dropping in to say hi :). Haven't been near a library to have a good browse. Did manage to pick up a Sean Williams book for a dollar in the surplus bin though.

  2. I loved the forest of hands and teeth! hope you love it too :D

  3. Nice loot! I LOVE the cover for Clara and Mr Tiffany. Enjoy!

  4. Lots of great books. Enjoy them all!

  5. I bought my kids The Forest of Hands and Teeth last Easter, and I still haven't gotten the chance to read it! I am looking forward to it though! Enjoy all your new reads!

  6. I really loved The Forest of Hands and Teeth...I have the second book, The Dead Tossed Waves, checked out from my library now...

  7. When did Carlos Luis Zafon came out with another book?

  8. I haven't heard of The Prince of Mist but I'm off to check it out--wondering if it's tied to Zafon's other books? I've only read Shadow of the Wind but I enjoyed it.

  9. Looks like a tasty selection. I'm interested in the CLZ for sure.

  10. Looks like you have great selections of books on your site. I will keep updated here thanks for sharing

  11. Wow, some fantastic finds there! A lot of those are on my wishlist -22 Britannia Road, Clara and Mr Tiffany and The Prince of Mist. Can't wait to hear about what you think about them.

  12. Hope you get to them soon Sam!

    Thanks Allan and Linda.

    Pam adn Man of la Book, it's one of his early YA novels that has just been translated. I just read the second one, and thought it was okay.

    Trish, Shadow of the Wind is one of my favourite books and I had been a bit worried about trying his other books. I wasn't overly enamoured with the last one I read but we will give this one a try and see.

    Sweetest Little Bookworm, Nomes and Zibilee, I have heard lots of really good things about the Carrie Ryan books

    The cover to Clara is gorgeous isn't it Claire.

    Hi Sean!
