Library Loot: April 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!

When I saw this today at Little Black Marks I knew that I had to share it for my Library Loot post this week! I certainly know that if my library isn't available for any reason I go through withdrawals!




My library enabled me to pick up these books this week (including three interlibrary loan requests):



Helene Hanff Omnibus - I read 84 Charing Cross Road a few weeks ago and I wanted to read the follow up book, Duchess of Bloomsbury which is contained in this omnibus. Might as well read the other sections of the book too!



Legacy by Susan Kay - I am a bit Tudored out but I have repeatedly been told that if you are only going to read one Tudor novel then this should be the one.



The Opposite of Life by Narrelle M Harris - There was a short story in Showtime which I read a few weeks ago that is connected to this book.



Between the Duke and the Deep Blue Sea by Sophia Nash - This is a new to me author. I tend to be sticking to authors I know and trust in romance, but every now and again I am induced to think about trying a new one.



The Gods of Gotham by Lindsay Faye - This is an Amy Einhorn imprint book. I have liked all of the books I have read so far from that imprint, and this one in particular sounds like something I would enjoy. It's a mystery set in New York in the 1800s - from memory at the outset of the New York police force.



Almost Home by Mariah Stewart - The next book in the Chesapeake Diaries series.\\



Teen Cuisine by Matthew Locricchio - This one was mentioned during Weekend Cooking a few weeks ago and I thought it might be something that the little chef might be interested in exploring.



Heavenly Pleasures by Kerry Greenwood - The next Corinna Chapman book.

What loot did you pick up from the library this week? Share you link in Mr Linky below so we can all come and take a look!

  2. The only thing I've read by Hanff is 84, Charing Cross Road but I loved it and do look forward to reading more of her work eventually, especially after having heard such wonderful things about Q's Legacy. I hope you enjoy the omnibus!

  5. I have read several of Helene Hanff's books & actually have this book. Apple of my Eye is a great book with a very descriptive & now historical description of The World Trade Centre. Enjoy!

    1. The only ones I have heard much about are Duchess of Bloomsbury and the one about Q. Will be interesting to see more from her.

  6. I borrowed the cartoon off another blog - it's so true! Must admit I have missed my library over the last 8 weeks - having a broken ankle makes it not only a lot harder to get there, but impossible to carry the books out!

    1. I can't imagine not being able to get to and from the library Kylie! Hope you are on the mend now.

  7. I just got one of Helene Hanff's books from Paperback Swap. Not sure which one. Loved 84 Charing Cross Road! The others are all unfamiliar to me. Hope your little chef has fun with the cookbook! My son would probably love cooking if he'd give it a chance, since he loves to eat, but he's as impatient in the kitchen as I am. Darn. Happy Reading!

    1. I am not sure that the little chef hasn't gone off cooking a little bit since we acquired an Xbox, but hopefully he will be interested enough still to at least take a look.

  8. Like the look of the omnibus! I am a complete sucker for any omnibus!

    1. It was actually a bit of a surprise to get the omnibus. I thought I had only requested Duchess of Bloomsbury via interlibrary loan but seeing as it has several stories in it I might as well read them!

  9. Have added The Opposite of Life to my reading list, thanks for the reminder
