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 very nearly didn't have any library loot to share this week. I haven't been to the library for over a week. Realising that I am not sure that I am going to have time to go over the weekend I made a special effort to go after work today. Lucky I guess, because there were quite a few books waiting to be picked up.
I quite often have a bit of a look to see what other people are requesting. It is probably no surprise to know that there were eight copies of one particular book sitting on the shelves waiting to be picked up. You know the one I mean. The library system has more than 25 copies and there is still a queue of around 130 people. You may be wondering why I am mentioning this? No, I didn't borrow it (been there, didn't buy the t-shirt) but just thought it was interesting because this is by far the biggest request queue I have ever seen in our local library system.
Anyway, instead of talking about a book that I didn't borrow, here are the ones I did get:
Poppy and the Thief by Gabrielle Wang - Next Our Australian Girl book
Recipes for a Perfect Marriage by Morag Prunty - the other day Stephanie from Reading a Single Sitting mentioned a book in the comments as something I might like. After reading her review, I totally agreed and so I broke my no new requests rule for July to request the book! Only problem is that it was a different book that she recommended! Whoops! This one sounds alright too though! Haha.
I am Half-Sick of Shadows by Alan Bradley - The next Flavia de Luce book.
Blood Song by Rhiannon Hart - I got home from work the other day to find an unexpected package at the door. It contained the second book in Rhiannon Hart's series, but I hadn't read the first one, so I had to go and borrow this one because I can't read a series out of order.
Fool Moon by Jim Butcher - Reloot. I am determined to get to this second book in the Dresden series.
Hometown Girl by Mariah Stewart - the next book in the Chesapeake Diaries contemporary romance series.
