Library Loot: October 9 to 14

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 couple of weeks ago I contemplated the idea of not requesting any books for the month of October so that I could catch up on my reading a little bit but it seems that my library is not cooperating as lots of books are coming through at one time. Having said that I have signed up for an online course and only realised after the event that the library doesn't have any of the books I need! Whoops!

Claire has Mr Linky this week. Head over to her blog to share your library loot links.

Here's what I got:

 The Cuckoo's Calling by Robert Galbraith - Or better know these days as being by JK Rowling. I had no interest in reading Casual Vacancy when it came out last year but the story of this one sounds like something I would enjoy more.

The Food of Love Cookery School by Nicky Pellegrino - I now have two books out from the library by this author but I can't even remember where heard of her!

The Piper's Son by Melina Marchetta - This is the follow up book to Saving Francesca which I listened to a few weeks ago. Once again I am listening to the audio version and thoroughly enjoying it. I am seriously tempted to just go and sit in the car and listen to it.

Sisters of Mercy by Caroline Overington - I just reviewed Caroline Overington's latest book and thoroughly enjoyed it so now I am planning to work my way through her back list!

In Her Blood by Annie Hauxwell - Our next book club book.

Take the Crown by Robbie Williams - I have been a long time Robbie Williams fan but I had heard basically nothing about this album here is Australia! I have listened to it today and was a bit underwhelmed but I will listen to it a few more times before making my final judgement on it.

In the mean time though I thought I would share one of my favourite Robbie Williams songs ever!


  1. Ah, I read the Piper's Son a little while ago. Enjoy :)

  2. I recently read The Cuckoo's Calling. It was not to my liking. I hope you enjoy your books and your online course.

  3. The Food of Love Cookery School looks good. Enjoy!

  4. This comment has been removed by the author.

  5. THERE IS A FOLLOW UP BOOK TO SAVING FRANCESCA?!? I had no idea. I know what will be in my loot next week!

  6. Hey Marg

    Hope your book club enjoys In Her Blood. If they do, tell your friends; if they don't, tell me!



  7. Grr. I have to go YouTube to watch a video available in my country. Stupid copyright laws. I can't believe all your books are new to me.

  8. I am savoring my copy of The Piper's Son. That was her _last_ contemporary before she started writing that other stuff.

  9. I do so like the mix of genres here! enjoy them all.
