Library Loot: December 7 to 13

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!

Not much loot to pick up this week, mainly because my card is still a bit full, but that is good for my reading schedule too. This week I think I am actually taking back more than I am borrowing.

The books I did pick up were:

Far Fly the Eagles by Evelyn Anthony - The third book in the Romanov trilogy.

A Beautiful Life by Irfan Master - I added this to my TBR pile after I saw a couple of posts about the book being mentioned at the recent Publisher's Showcase which was run by the Centre for Youth Literature at the Melbourne Library. I think it caught my attention because it is YA historical fiction, but to be honest the blurb doesn't really sell it as being that at all. Might be a bit of a shock when I actually start to read it!

That's it for me this week. Head over to the Claire's blog to leave your link at Mr Linky.


  1. ew! I hope Far Flies the Eagle is better written than designed. What a horrid cover. lol That being said, how did I miss the existence of that trilogy?

  2. I'm not familiar with these but hope you enjoy them. Just one for me this week.

  3. Both of these are new to me but I'm kind of intrigued by the awfulness of the cover for Far Flies the Eagle. Enjoy!

  4. Claire, it's not the actual cover I have but the one I have is not much better!

    Kelly, the cover for the second book in the trilogy is not much better. I only found out about the trilogy because Misfit and co were talking about it over at Goodreads.

    Thanks Linda!

  5. I haven't heard of these books before, so I will be curious to see what you think of them.

  6. A Romanov trilogy? Sounds interesting!
