Library Loot: January 4 to 10

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 think the holidays have thrown me a bit out of kilter. I swear it was my turn for Mr Linky this week so when I suddenly realised that I hadn't been to the library yet and so would have no loot, I rushed off to pick up my library holds ... and then got home and realised that I had it last week so it is Claire's turn! Oh well. At least I have loot now. The kind of weird thing is that my library system had a 60 day check out period during December as a Christmas gift to it's patience. What this means is that all the books that I borrowed today are actually due back before any of the books I have borrowed in the last month!

Can't Stand the Heat by Louisa Edwards - I recently read the first book in Louisa Edwards second trilogy, but there are no other books available from the library in that trilogy just yet. This book is the first book in her debut trilogy.

Just Over the Mountain by Robyn Carr - The second book in the Grace River Valley series, and you's Robyn Carr.

The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley - I have been meaning to read this book for the longest time!

Instant Attraction by Jill Shalvis - Another author who is rapidly becoming a favourite. I have read all the books that are currently out in the Lucky Harbor and Animal Magnetism series so I thought I would try this series now.

By the way, I am currently giving away a copy of A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness. Check out all the details at the giveaway post (which also happens to be my list of favourite reads for 2011)!


  1. I have heard really good things about Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie, and I hope that you enjoy it! I am looking forward to hearing your thoughts on it!

  2. I too have heard good things about the Sweetness At The Bottom of The Pie. I haven't started it yet but I'm sure you'll enjoy it!

  3. I hope you enjoy The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie! I too am hoping to finally read it in 2012.

  4. Enjoy your loot! Would you believe I have nothing out from the library at the moment...

  5. I also borrowed the Bradley book from the library. Hope we like it!

  6. Harvee, me too!

    Kailana, nothing at all! I can't imagine being in that position!

    Claire, Zibilee and Linda, lots of people love it, but I keep on procastinating when it comes to actually reading it.

  7. great loot, i have lots in common with yours this week, in terms of Carr and Shalvis being auto-reads for me too! and i was also off kilter going back to the lib after a long break because i had a late fee, but Washington DC library gave out a "holiday present" to welcome people back to the library (who had been away for years id guess) by FORGIVING allllll late fees!!!!! sooo nice of them, mine was only $4.70 but still!
