Library Loot: February 27 to March 5

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 was hoping to make it to the library tonight as usual but unfortunately work is kicking my butt and I didn't make it home before it was already closed. Oh well. Good job I had already picked up a whole heap of books.

Here is my loot for this week:

Broken Harbor by Tana French - I was reminded the other day that I still haven't read this book. It is the only one of Tana French's that I haven't yet read.

Love and Hunger by Charlotte Wood - As soon as I read Bree's review the other day I decided that it was a book that I wanted to read.

Finding Mr Flood by Ciara Geraghty - I really enjoyed this author's latest book, Lifesaving for Beginners which I read for a readalong recently. Now the plan is to read through her backlist.

The Inn at Eagle Point by Sherryl Woods - Recently I reviewed the Chesapeake Diaries series by Mariah Stewart. In the comments someone suggested that I might like this series which has a similar setting and feel so I thought I would give it a go!

The Return by Victoria Hislop - Last year I really enjoyed discovering Victoria Hislop's books. This one is set in Spain rather than Greece like her others.

Crystal Cove by Lisa Kleypas - The next Friday Harbor book. I have heard very mixed reviews about this one!

Tart by Lauren Dane - I requested my library by the first and second book in this series as they already had the third book on order. They ended up only getting this one, which is the second, but I can live with that.

Claire has Mr Linky this week, so head over to her blog to share your Library Loot posts.


  1. Thanks for the heads up of the Friday Harbour follow up. It was seeing your review of the previous one that made me download it.

  2. I loved The Return, it's quite epic at times and has various themes. Enjoy the books!

  3. Looks like a good week's loot, even without the extra library trip! Enjoy!

  4. I just finished In the Woods, and I can't wait to read The Likeness, which everyone says is amazing. I will have to see what I think. Great loot here today!

  5. Doesn't look as though you needed another library visit. Broken Harbour - fantastic! Enjoy your loot.

  6. I'm really interested in reading Lifesaving for Beginners one day; it's not available here. :(

    Tart look saucy! hee hee.

  7. The Hislop is a new one for me. I enjoyed the other books so much.

  8. The Return is wonderful, am sure you will love it (but make sure you have tissues ready).

  9. I look forward to seeing what you think of Sherryl Woods' series! I picked up Lisa Kleypas's Crystal Cove from the library last week, too, so I'll be reading it sometime this month.
