Library Loot: July 6 to 12

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 am very excited this week! Our new library branch is officially open! They are only open late one night a week so I am not sure that I will change my branch to the new one, but I am definitely planning to go and have a look tomorrow! Just the idea of all those brand new books excites me! Also loot for this week:

Troubletwisters by Garth Nix and Sean Williams - This is the first book in a new series cowritten by two Australian authors. I have read Nix before, but not Williams.

Lunch in Paris: a love story with recipes by Elizabeth Bard - This is the July book for a group I am in on Facebook and also fits nicely for the Paris in July event I am participating in at the moment.

Cape Storm by Rachel Caine - The next book in the Weather Warden series.

The Penny Pinchers Club by Sarah Strohmeyer - I haven't read one of this author's books for ages!

The White Woman on the Green Bicycle by Monique Roffey - Heard lots of good things about this book!

The Lost Art of Gratitude by Alexander McCall Smith - The next book in the Isabel Dalhousie series.

Notorious Love by Sabrina Jeffries - I have read all of this authors recent books so now it is time to work my way through the remaining backlist books I haven't yet read.

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


  1. I am kind of curious about the new Garth Nix. You will have to let me know what you think if you don't wind up reviewing it.

  2. Lunch in Paris sounds fun! Thanks for sharing your loot.

  3. Enjoy Lunch In Paris. I really enjoyed it. Enjoy all your other loot too.

  4. It seems like there have been a real spate of Paris books out lately. I wonder if that is the new literary trend? Enjoy all your new reads!

  5. I LOVE Lunch in Paris! It was one of my Top 10 Reads of 2010 and the recipes are wonderful (esp. the raspberry financiers). Enjoy!

  6. I'd be excited about a new library to explore too - enjoy!!
    I read Lunch in Paris last week and enjoyed it even though it's not my usual sort of reading.

  7. Among the seven books,I'm going to read Troubletwisters .. It's kinda really interesting.:)
