Library Loot: June 22 to 28

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 have mentioned a couple of times before that we are in the lucky situation of having our library system being one that is growing. A couple of years ago we had a new branch open, and in a matter of weeks we are going to have another new branch as well. The exciting thing about when there is a new branch, is that every single book that they bring in to shelve is brand new. The reason I mention this is that we are starting to see that there are books that have been catalogued as being on the shelf in the new branch, and there are some that I am waiting for. The new branch is probalby equal distance from my house to the one I go to now, so the key factor for me will be opening hours before I can decide whether I go to the new one or old one!

New Loot:

The Heir by Grace Burrowes - I have had chances to read this before, but I was never all that interested. I don't know what changed, but I must have seen something that made me think need to request this now!

A Fountain Filled with Blood by Julia Spencer-Fleming - I recently read the first book in this series and thoroughly enjoyed it. I had to get this one through Interlibrary Loan as well. I think I have to get the next couple of books too through ILL too, but the later books in the series are on the catalogue when I get to them!


Claire has Mr Linky today, so head on over and share your loot by adding your link to Mr Linky!


  1. Hmm. That's the second time within a few days that someone's mentioned Julia Spencer-Fleming. This is the female priest series I think? I shall have to see if my library has any of them.

  2. Yes, it is the female priest series. I liked the first one.

  3. Great picks Marg! My daughter really liked The Reckoning!


  4. Love that cover on The Reckoning. Great choices this week. I still haven't gotten around to reading my library books from two weeks ago yet, and they are coming due soon! Ahh, the pressure!

  5. The Spencer-Fleming catches my eye too. I haven't heard of this series before so another for my library checklist.
    Happy reading!

  6. YEA! for ne library branches. I am stopping by my library after work today for some pick ups.

    The Fountain mystery book looks good. Thanks for the tip :)

  7. I was thrilled when my local branch introduced Sunday hours earlier this year - I can't imagine how over the moon I'd be if a whole new branch opened up nearby with all new books! How exciting for you!

    Enjoy your loot!
