Library Loot: October 30 to November 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!
Can you believe that date that I have just put up there in the title of this post! November for goodness sake! There is no way that I am ready for it to be this close to the end of year!

Here's the loot that I got this week:

It Had to be You by Jill Shalvis - The next Lucky Harbor book

One Hundred Summers by Beatriz Williams - It has taken a while for this book to come in to the library. I originally requested that it be bought when it first came out, but I got a message back saying that it was not available through the library's suppliers. A couple of months later I got the idea to check to see if it was available in other library systems, which it was, so I requested it via interlibrary loan. That request was declined, but suddenly the book was on my account showing as on order and now it is here.

One Sweet Ride by Jaci Burton - The next book in the Play-by-play series.

In a Treacherous Court by Michelle Diener - I have read a few books by Michelle Diener now so it is time to go back and read her Tudor set novel.

10 Years of Hits by Ronan Keating - A couple of Saturday nights ago now I was talking about Notting Hill, and in particular the song When You Say Nothing At All. I always said that this would be my first dance song if I was to get married (not that that is going to happen now) - the only detail of a wedding I had ever planned! I ws reminded that at some point I owned this album but I don't know what happened to it, so time to revisit. I also watched Notting Hill a few days ago so that song is fresh in my mind!

What loot did you get this week?

And just's my wedding waltz song as seen in the movie


  1. I too have a hard seeing that November is just days away. To me the end of the year seems so far away. But it's getting closer!

  2. That Ronan Keating song is one of my friend's (secret) favourites - I remember buying him a copy of the CD single as a joke - he's still got it years later!

  3. Tho I seldom check out books from or local library which I avidly support with $$ and used (aka read but not to keep) books, I set up this blog to review books I've read. Lately it's harder to keep up as I find other ways including Random Reads and Facebook allow book reviews. But I started the blog for books as a way to track my readings so I would not pick up the same book at sales...does it always work, no. I just bought "Fannie" by Laurie King which I am sure I read years ago, prior to blogging. I do enjoy watching to see what others are reading though.

  4. Oh I'd like to read Beatriz Williams! I havent read her first one or her second one. Hope you like it. I got Catching Fire out of the Library recently so I will be ready for Hunger Games Part 2, which is coming out as a movie this month. cheers, enjoy your week,

  5. I've heard some good things about A Hundred Summers! I'm glad you finally got a copy through your library. :) Happy reading.
