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!Last week I made a new resolution about trying to limit some of my library requests, and I have to say I think I did quite well this week. I actually only broke the rules twice. Once was for a cook book, which doesn't really count (right?) and the other was for my next book club book so I had to request that in order to have any chance of reading it in time.
That doesn't mean that I had no books to pick up...no sirree! All these are books that I had requested before I put my new initiative in place!
Silk Road by Colin Falconer - This author did a guest post for us at Historical Tapestry. All the interactions I have had with him have been great, so it's only fair that I try his book!
Dangerous to Know by Tasha Alexander - I actually am not sure why I requested this one. I didn't really like the last book in the series that I read but I still continue on.
American Gods by Neil Gaiman - After reading Fragile Things it is now time to give a Neil Gaiman full scale novel a go.
The School of Essential Ingredients by Erica Bauermeister - I have heard such good things about this author!
The Black Pearl by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles - Will this be the time that I actually read this book?
The Island by Victoria Hislop - this sounds exactly like a book I would love!
Home Again by Mariah Stewart - the next book in the Chesapeake Diaries series.
Dangerous in Diamonds by Madeline Hunter - the next book in the Rarest Blooms series.
The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown - I have been meaning to read this ever since it came out.
Claire has the Mr Linky this week so head on over to share your loot!
