Library Loot: July 24 to 30

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!
My library list continues to grow, although this week's loot is a little bigger than usual.

Here's what I got:

The Tudor Secret by C W Gortner - I am supposed to be reading the second book in this series for a blog tour in the next couple of weeks but then I realised that I haven't read the first book yet! Need to rectify that soon!

Bridge of Dreams by Anne Bishop - Last week I read Anne Bishop's newest book and I loved it! I was reminded of how much I enjoy her books even though I haven't read one for years.

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell - This book was on order when I first requested it.....more than a year ago! Finally, finally it came in!

Welcome to Rosie Hopkins' Sweetshop of Dreams by Jenny Colgan - reloot. I read a few pages but then had to return the book because someone else had requested it.

The Pretend Wife by Bridget Asher - I just finished reading one of this author's other books and loved it!

A Year in the Merde by Stephen Clarke - I might just have time to fit one more memoir about moving to France in to this month in honour of Paris in July!

The Tour de France: the good, the bad and the just plain weird by Paul Hansford - I love watching Le Tour and miss it when it finishes each year. This book might help me through for another few weeks at least.

What loot did you get this week. Add your link to Mr Linky below:


  1. So jealous about Eleanor and Park. I can't wait to read it but the queue is so long at my library :(

  2. I finally read Attachments, Rainbow Rowell's first book, last month and loved it, so am greatly looking forward to Eleanor and Park. Enjoy your loot!

  3. I look forward to seeing your review of Clarkes 'a year in the merde' - I've seen that before but wasn't sure.... let me know what you think? I too am missing 'le tour', so much so, that my partner & I watched the video of the stage on Alpe d'huez again last night - that was a great race day - so exhilarating and so many twists and turns. I'm very impressed with the young Aussie, Richie Porte.

  4. Gortner's books are always awesome. I just read Meet Me at the Cupcake Cafe by Jenny Colgan. I think the one you have here is a sequel to it. I'd love to read it one day soon.
