For the first time in years I am participating in Library Loot but I am not co-hosting. I wanted to say thanks to Linda from Silly Little Mischief who volunteered when we said that we were looking for a new co-host.
Also a bit weird....I have been a bad library patron. Not only have I not been borrowing any books I was also being slack in returning them so I have had numerous books overdue and got a big fine to boot, but I think I will be back on track now.
Here's the loot I got this week:
Merle's Country Show Baking by Merle Parrish - Somewhere in this house, but I don't know precisely where, I have Merle's first cookbook (which I reviewed a couple of years ago). I liked lots of the recipes that were in her original book so I am looking forward to spending some time looking through this cookbook too.
Bellagrand by Paullina Simons - Whilst I was a bit disappointed by Children of Liberty, I still consider myself to be a Paullina Simons fan so there was no doubt I would read this book which follows on from Children.
The Cuckoo's Calling by Robert Galbraith - Reloot.
Bring up the Bodies by Hilary Mantel - I listened to the audiobook of Wolf Hall at the end of last year and loved it. Unfortunately my library didn't have the audio of this follow up book so I will just have to read it!
Magic Bites by Ilona Andrews - I was chatting with some people about audiobooks on Twitter the other day, and the narrator of this series was recommended. My library has the audio of books later in the series but my compulsive need to read in order means that I need to start by reading this one.
Froi of the Exiles by Melina Marchetta - I listened to the first book in this series but this is another one where the library doesn't have the second book on audio so I will have to read this one too. It is a much thicker book than I expected it to be!
Breathe by Tim Winton - I have only ever read one Tim Winton book and I wasn't all that fussed by it so I thought it was time to read another and see if this one works for me a bit better. This is one that I am going to listen to on audio. I have been without an audiobook for a few days and I can't tell you what a relief it is to have another one to listen too.
Native by OneRepublic - I love that you can borrow CDs from our library, and have several on request at the moment.
