Library Loot: December 21 to 27

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 will be happy to have a few days off next week if for no other reason that I could maybe get to read a couple of books because all of my requests just keep on coming in.

Here's my loot for this week. It looks like a lot, and I am going to try to justify and say that it is two visits worth. I am not sure that really works in terms of justification though.

Olivia and Jai by Rebecca Ryman - This book has been recommended to me a number of times as being excellent historical fiction set in India. I am not even sure what prompted me to check, but I suddenly thought I should see if it was available through inter library loan....and it was!

Scandalous Desires by Elizabeth Hoyt - The next book in the Maiden Lane series...and it's purple!

The Scottish Prisoner by Diana Gabaldon - the next Lord John Grey book.

There but for the by Ali Smith - I was listening to a podcast the other day where they were talking about this book with a lot of enthusiasm. They talked about how funny it was, how clever and more. If it wasn't for that podcast I am not sure I would have picked it up because the back cover copy didn't do a lot for me!

All I Ever Wanted by Kristan Higgins - Only a few more books left in Kristan Higgins backlist, and this is one of them.

Songs of Love and Death: tales of star crossed love anthology - I really only got this book for the Diana Gabaldon story, which I think is the one which tells Roger's parent's story.

To Wed a Wild Lord by Sabrina Jeffries - the next book in the Hellions of Halstead Hall series.

Animal Attraction by Jill Shalvis - the next book in the Animal Magnetism series.

Head over to Claire's blog to add your link to Mr Linky and share your loot for this week.


  1. I've never read Olivia & Jai, but I really enjoyed Ryman's book Shalimar, also set in India.

  2. Love the cover of Olivia & Jai, and I usually like books set in India. There but for the sounds interesting, too.

  3. Lots of good stuff here, but my favorite has to be Olivia and Jai. I need to see if that one is available in audio from my library!

  4. I finished The Scottish Prisoner last week. Enjoyed it. Nice loot.

  5. Historical fiction set in India? I might be interested in that one. And I know the feeling of all those books coming in and you just need the time to read them.

  6. Hihi, I actually got the Higgins book from bookcmooch this week :D

  7. Historical fiction set in India AND the new Diana Gabaldon? That's what I call an excellent library haul! I'm also quite intrigued by Songs of Love and Death, which I'd never heard of before, and Gabaldon's story in it. Enjoy your loot!

  8. As always a treasury of recommendations! Thanks for all your efforts this year. Have a great Chrissie.

  9. Great selection! Songs of Love and Death looks interesting. All I ever wanted is a fun romance.

  10. I hadn't heard of the Diana Gabaldon story about Roger's parents. I've got to track that down!

  11. I adore all of Jill Shalvis' books, and I know you will too :) I've been a fan of Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series, but have not read John's series book yet. Eventually I will :)
