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 is the last Library Loot for November! Where has the year gone? For this month I was trying to show a little self control and not just request books constantly as I usually do. The idea was that this would reduce the number of books that I would have out and that therefore I would get to a point where there would be a gap and I would therefore be able to make a concerted effort to read some of the books that I have sitting around my house unread.
It was a good plan, but I don't think it has quite worked because there really has only been one week where I only picked up one book. This week, for example, lots of books that I have been waiting for for some time have all turned up, so I still picked up four items tonight in addition to other books earlier in the week.
I also noticed a sign at the library that said that if we borrow any books during December, the borrowing time has been extended from four weeks to 60 days, so those books will not be due back until February. I am not sure that this is necessarily a good thing for me in terms of getting some books read, but what can you do? Going to have to take advantage regardless!

Here's the loot that I picked up this week:
All That I Am: a novel by Anna Funder - I can't remember exactly why I added this to my TBR list, but with a WWII setting and the fact that Anna Funder is an Australian author, I am really looking forward to it. Actually, I think I might have heard a podcast about it and that was what prompted me to request it.
Changeless by Gail Carriger - the next Alexia Tarabotti book.
A Train in Winter: an extraordinary story of women, friendship, and resistance in occupied France by Caroline Moorehead - I do seem to be reading a lot of WWII books at the moment. This one has a slight variation in that it is a non-fiction book.
The Strangers on Montagu Street by Karen White - the latest book in the Tradd Street series. Yay! Can't wait to read more about Jack!
The Most Wicked of Sins by Kathryn Caskie - I read the first book in this series a couple of weeks ago and thought it was okay. Can't seem to help myself and still requested the second book in the series anyway!
Making Mirrors by Gotye - I love the song Somebody That I Used to Know so want to see which other songs on the album I like!
