Library Loot: June 12 to 18


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!
Welcome to this week's Library Loot post! Another mixed bag for me this week. There is a graphic novel, an audiobook, literature and a romance! All over the place in my reading as usual!

Here's what I got:

How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia by Mohsin Hamid - Our book club book for July is Mohsin Hamid's The Reluctant Fundamentalist. That fact, coupled with the fact that I saw the movie of The Reluctant Fundamentalist the other week, reminded me that I really needed to read another book by him!


Chasing Fire by Nora Roberts - I have borrowed this in book form several times, but with my newly rediscovered enjoyment of audiobooks I thought I would try it on audio. So far I am really enjoying it!



French Milk by Lucy Kinsley - I can't remember where I heard about French Milk, or at least where specifically I heard about it again and thought I must try this book. I did borrow it in anticipation of Paris in July being announced, which it now has! Yippee - or perhaps I should find a French word to express my joy at that?

Welcome to Rosie Hopkin's Sweetshop of Dreams by Jenny Colgan - I don't remember hearing much about this book before it won the Romantic Novelist Association prize for best book this year. I do love a good romantic novel so this should be right up my alley!

What loot did you get this week? Share your link below:

  1. I hadn't seen Paris in July was up--will definitely have to sign up for that one again. And yippee in French is "Youpi". :) Youpi!

  4. Looks like a great collection of books/audio books. I have not gotten much into audio books. I have found it difficult to concentrate on them. Enjoy!

  5. I had no idea there was a film of the Reluctant Fundamentalist. It's one of those books I've always meant to read, but because there's always a copy on the shelves I always leave it for another day. Maybe this will inspire me to finally pick it up!

    1. It does sound very good! I am hoping that it is, and then there are a few more books to read on the backlist!
