Library Loot: August 10 to 16

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 before how lucky we are to have a growing library service. Something that they have started doing more recently is presenting author events that are being run in conjunction with a local bookstore! Tonight, I was lucky enough to go to an event featuring American author Maria V Snyder! They even have nibblies! I didn't actually borrow any books tonight (mainly because my son had my library card) but this is what I borrowed earlier in the week:

French Lessons by Ellen Sussman - A bit too late for Paris in July, but this sounds like a fun read for me!

Eleven Scandals to Start to Win a Duke's Heart by Sarah Maclean - the third book in the numbers trilogy!

The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown - there was a lot of positive buzz around this book when it first came out a few months ago. I requested it as soon as I saw it on the catalogue, but it has taken a while to come in.

Out of the Deep I Cry by Julia Spencer-Fleming - the next book in the Clair Fergusson/Russ Van Alstyne mysteries.

To Sin with a Stranger by Kathryn Caskie - I read an excerpt of this somewhere and thought it sounded like a fun read. I haven't read this author before.

What did you borrow from your library this week? Share your link in Mr Linky below:


  1. Haha. I'm also in queue for The Weird Sisters! This seems to happen an awful lot.

  2. I am going to be reading French Lessons as well, and The Weird Sisters was just such a fabulous book! I loved it, and loved the relationships between the sisters. I hope that you enjoy it!

  3. Ah. I feel so hmm. sheltered whenever I see your loot usually - as I have NO CLUE what they are about.. and haven't heard about them... hmmm :(

  4. I have Weird Sisters out from the library, too. I never seem able to get around to it, though.

  5. The Weird Sisters is on my tbr list. Nothing for me this week. Trying to catch up on my old loot first.
