Library Loot: February 20 to 26

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 had been being good with the number of books I was taking back being more than the number of books I was borrowing but as indicated by the word had, that has kind of reversed!

Here's the loot that I got this week:

The Horse Dancer by Jojo Moyes - After loving the last three new releases from Jojo Moyes, I am starting to work my way through her backlist.

Just One Day by Gayle Forman - I loved If I Stay and Where I Went so I am excited to read this book. I am a bit concerned about having to wait a year for the next book which is directly related to this one.

Easy by Tammara Webber - There was lots of buzz about this book when it was self published. Now it has been picked up by the big publishers.

Me Before You by Jojo Moyes - I decided to reread this book, which was one of only two books that I gave the grading of 5/5 last year, for a book club discussion. I have now bought it but it wouldn't be delivered in time so I borrowed it again.

Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller - I have been meaning to read this ever since it came out. Maybe this is the time.

Tuscan Rose by Belinda Alexandra - I actually have owned this book since it first came out but I haven't ever read it. I was looking for a new audiobook to listen to and this was there, so I thought I would listen to it instead of reading it.

Own the Night by Lady Antebellum - Just because I have the other Lady Antebellum Cds. I am a bit concerned though. I put the disc in my computer to listen to it, and now I opened the tray to put it back in the case and it isn't there. I have no idea where the disc is. I guess i have a couple of weeks to find it!

Share you link in Mr Linky below:
PS - Sorry I was a bit late with this post. Had a visitor and was up until late talking!


  1. I was just rereading your Me Before You review last night, wondering if I ought to check for it at the library. Clearly, I must!

  2. Some fantastic books there. I seem to remember reading about Easy, and have read a lot about Just One Day, positive and negative. It'll be interesting to hear what you thought of it!

  3. Good loot! I just finished Just One was good, very enjoyable but it isn't an If I Stay or Where She Went. I have another Tamara Webber on my Kindle.... Between The Lines I think? Been meaning to read it, just haven't got there yet. I've also had Song of Achilles floating around for ages now. Maybe we can motivate each other!

  4. I did read Easy and while I did enjoy it. I also have Me Before You and looking forward to read it :) You will have to let me know how you like If I Stay , my friend suggested me to read it

  5. Oooh good list. Can' wait to see what you think of Song of Achilles.

  6. I keep meaning to try Jojo Moyes but haven't as yet..........and I still haven't read Achilles. Enjoy your loot.

  7. I almost picked up Just One Day yesterday. But I have too many books. Enjoy your loot.

  8. Great selection of books. I'v posted mine. I'm not sure how to include your header, though. Sorry.
