Library Loot: March 27 to April 2

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!
In last week's Library Loot post, I did hint at the fact that my loot was going to be more like a haul. However an influx of requests has meant that it is now a huge haul. The impact of this is that after months of having my number of books out at a relatively reasonably level, suddenly I am getting back up towards the limit of the number of books out. Maybe I should spend the four day weekend for Easter just reading...oh, and maybe watching some more Lizzie Bennet Diaries!

Here is what I have picked up this week:

Channel Orange by Frank Ocean - Heard lots of good things about this album!

The Lost Recipe for Happiness by Barbara O'Neal - I have read a few of this author's books now and I find them very easy reading, very soothing!

Giving Chase by Lauren Dane - I am up to date with the Brown Brothers series and the spin off series, Delicious, so time to go back to one of the older series that Lauren Dane has written.

Best of Bill by Bill Granger - My go to Banana Bread recipe is one of Bill's recipes, and just recently I have been cooking one of his roast chicken recipes too. Time to have a look at his best and see what else he has to offer!

Mateship with Birds by Carrie Tiffany - Recently included on the Miles Franklin longlist, it is probably way past time I read this book.

Crucible of Gold by Naomi Novik  - I was a bit disappointed with the last Temeraire book so I am hoping this one will be better.

Flavours of Melbourne by Jonnette George - I wonder what hidden gems will be unearthed in the pages of this book.

Tender Morsels by Margo Lanagan - I loved Sea Hearts by Margo so it is time to read one of her other novels.

Lord of Darkness by Elizabeth Hoyt - The next Maiden Lane book.

Thrown by a Curve by Jaci Burton - The next Play-by-Play book which obviously features a baseball player!

Zoe's Baby by Alison Roberts - The next Sydney Harbor Hospital book.

Claire has Mr Linky this week so head over to share your loot!


  1. Ooh, I can't wait to hear what you think of Tender Morsels! I have heard so many good things about it! I like you other loot too. It seems you picked out a few different genres.

  2. What an awesome variety and large loot! I'll have to look a little more into Tender Morsels, that cover has me intrigued.

    Enjoy your loot!

  3. That's a good pile of books there. Tender Morsels also attracts me too. Enjoy your loot.

  4. Lovely loot! Unfortunately our library doesn't have Mateship With Birds so I won't be reading that one. I also hope for a quiet Easter as I seriously overdid the loot this week. Happy reading!

  5. Excellent loot! I went to the library today (very odd for me - but it wasn't my local which is dismal). I came away with mainly magazines - oops. I did get a couple of books though, which I hope I can get through!

  6. What i do not understood is actually how you're no longer actually a lot more well-appreciated than you might be right now. You're so intelligent.

    You understand thus considerably in relation to this topic, produced me personally believe it from a lot of varied angles.
    Its like women and men aren't involved unless it's something to accomplish
    with Woman gaga! Your individual stuffs excellent.

    Always handle it up!

  7. Heya fantastic website! Does running a blog such as this require a
    lot of work? I have no knowledge of computer programming but I was hoping
    to start my own blog soon. Anyhow, should you have any ideas or techniques for
    new blog owners please share. I understand this is off subject nevertheless I just needed to ask.
    Many thanks!

    Here is my web site - スー

  8. I am not sure where you are getting your info, but great topic.
    I needs to spend some time learning much more or understanding more.

    for my mission.

  9. I could have sworn you'd already read Tender Morsels and had been one of the people who recommended it to me! I tend to think of you as the person who got me onto Margo Lanagan (you read White Time and some others yes?) and I guess I just assumed you'd read this one already! Whoops. It it REALLY good though. Some people were really disappointed (and unjustly critical) about the ending but while it might not have been the feel-good ending people wanted, it was just right for the story and characters.

    Curious about the Melbourne book!

  10. What did you think about the Channel Orange album? I LOVE it :)
