Library Loot: 19 to 26 February

A very long time ago, I used to co-host the Library Loot meme, originally with Eva from A Striped Armchair and then with Claire from The Captive Reader, but obviously once I stopped reading as much, I therefore didn't borrow books from the library. This week though I stepped through the hallowed doors, paid some of my outstanding fines, and borrowed some books! 

Here's what I got:

Pomegranate Soup by Marsha Mehran - Not too long ago I saw Deb from Kahakai Kitchen  mention that she participates in an online book club called Cook the Books which sounds like something I might enjoy. The description is a bimonthly book club/blog event that focuses on a different food centric book each round. This is the next choice that has just been announced.

With the Fire on High by Elizabeth Acevedo - Bree from All the Books I Can Read recently raved about this book so I thought I would request it!

Ambulance Girls Under Fire by Deborah Burrows - I read the first book in this trilogy a couple of years ago.

I don't know how often I will be borrowing from the library but I will do a Library Loot post when I do so.

badge-4Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Claire from The Captive Reader and Sharlene from Real Life Reading 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.


  1. I loved PomengranateSoup. Reminded me of Sarah Addison Allen books. Plus, if you like it there is a sequel. Enjoy!

  2. Nice mix of reads. Pomegranate soup - even the title is intriguing.

  3. I, of course, remember Library Loot!! Great mix of books. I've been meaning to read With the Fire on High.

  4. I remember when I used to use my library. I haven't really since we moved because the library is not anywhere near my normal route. Maybe one day I will get back to using it! lol

  5. It's so nice to return back to the library after a long absence isn't it? I've stayed away for a while so I can tackle more of my books but recently went back. Hope you enjoy your books!

  6. Hello,
    Usually, I never comment on blogs but your blog is so convincing that I never stop myself to say something about it. You’re doing a great job Man, Keep it up

  7. Welcome back to Library Loot! So glad you posted this :)
