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!
This week I was blog hopping when I saw someone had posted some images that have been developed in support of saving libraries. Whilst I can't remember where I saw them, or if this was one of the images I originally saw and liked there are a number of library themed sets at Flickr, including some that have their origins in WWI and WWII posters. There's lots of great images to have a look through and I might feature some (if I remember) over the next few weeks.
I've been doing my bit to help out my local library. Here's my loot for this week!
The Tiger's Wife by Tea Olbrecht - Reloot.
Unholy Pilgrims: how one man thought walking 800kms across Spain would sort out his life by Tom Trumble - This author was one that I heard speak at Melbourne Writer's Festival a few weeks ago, and I thought it was quite interesting sounding!
Shards of Honor by Lois McMaster Bujold - I have decided I want to read the Miles Vorkisagan saga. I think I now have the first couple - I think. Trying to work out the reading order has been somewhat confusing!
The Pretend Wife by Bridget Asher - I was originally interested in reading Bridget Asher's latest book, but at the time my library didn't have it so I started with her first book.. Having enjoyed that I am now going to read this, the second book that the author released under this name.
The Dead Tossed Waves by Carrie Ryan - A couple of weeks ago I read The Forest of Hands and Teeth and absolutely loved it. Had to request this second book in the trilogy asap!
Between Shades of Grey by Ruta Sepetys - I have had this book on my TBR list for a while. Thought it was about time to move it up the list!
Black Juice by Margo Lanagan - My odyssey through Margo Lanagan's short story collection backlist continues!
The Lantern by Deborah Lawrenson - I actually had this book from Netgalley but then I decided I wanted to participate in the RIP VI readalong but my galley was going to expire so I have borrowed it from the library instead.
To Darkness and to Death by Julia Spencer-Fleming - the next book in the very good Reverend Clare Fergusson/Russ Van Alstyne series. I have had to request all of these books through ILL. I think my library has the last two or three books in the series.
