Library Loot: 21 to 27 August

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!

A bumper haul this week with a mix of books and DVDs.

Here's what I got:

 Dark Knight Rising Trilogy - This is actually for the boy, although I did sit down and watch the first movie with him.

Entwined with You by Sylvia Day - The next Cross Fire book

Chased by Lauren Dane - The next Chase book

Children of the Storm by Elizabeth Peters - Following Elizabeth Peters recent death, I realised that I haven't read an Amelia Peabody book for years, an oversight that I need to rectify.

Downton Abbey season 3 - I had a bit of an issue because two TV series came in at the same time which meant a lot of TV viewing for me in addition to the stuff I had to watch already. I managed to watch this series over the weekend (and cried for most of the time!).

The Newsroom season 1 - I have heard so many good things about this series. I think I am going to have to reborrow it though as there is no way I am going to have time to watch any of it this weekend.

The Sigh by Marjane Sartrapi - I recently watched the movie adaptation of Chicken with Plums. My library doesn't have that graphic novel but they did have this one.

The Illusion of Separateness by Simon van Booy - I really liked Simon van Booy's previous book so I was eager to read his new one now that it is out!

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


  1. Did you finish Downton Season 3???

    1. I did! Not sure I like the producer's idea of a Christmas special!

  2. Lots to keep you busy here! Enjoy your loot.

  3. I haven't read an Elizabeth Peters for years either - something to look forward to. Happy reading!

    1. It's funny how series and authors slip off your radar even though you really enjoy them.

  4. Hi Marg :)

    Very nice loot! I just finished watching The Newsroom and it's indeed very good :) So far though, season 2 hasn't measured up for me.

    1. That's a bit disappointing that season 2 hasn't lived up to season 1. Hopefully the next season will be better!
