Library Loot

Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Claire from The Captive Reader and me 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.

Wow. A lot of holds came in this week. These are going to keep me busy!

I found I Shall Be Near To You on a list of hot new releases. I am fascinated with women who fought in the Civil War. I look forward to reading this one. 

More graphic novels. I was intrigued by Set To Sea. I don't think I've read a graphic novel set on a ship before.

I found the Sky Over The Louvre because I was looking for graphic novels about the French Revolution. This series is about the Louvre and this graphic novel is set during the French Revolution.

Since I'm waiting for Cress from the library, I decided to read a few other Rapunzel retellings. I usually like Flinn's books so I hope this is another good one.

Another Rapunzel retelling.

I have heard nothing but rave reviews about Sherman Alexie. I decided it was high time I started reading his books.

I've recently become a fan of Chopped and last month I caught a Chopped: All Stars were Marcus Samuelsson was cooking. I was impressed with his skills and his attitude. I look forward to his memoir.

What did you get this week? Add your post below.


  1. Looks like you will be busy. Enjoy your loot!

  2. I hope you enjoy Absolutely True Diary! Reminds me that I loaned my copy to my brother and never got it back.

  3. I got lots of holds too this week! And next week too.

  4. Looks like you have lots of good reading ahead of you! It always seems like when you have a bunch of library holds out that they come in at once. But it is such I usually don't mind :) Enjoy these!

  5. Fairest of Them All is on my to-read list, I hope its a good one! Towering looks great too.


Shiny! I love comments.
