Library Loot

Finally, a LIBRARY LOOT! With the holidays and a crazy travel schedule, I decided to hold off on making any library trips until after the holidays since I knew I wouldn’t get a chance to read any of the books I brought home anyway. Yesterday, I made a trip and came home with a lot of good stuff. 🙂

Okay, so ignore the strange placement of book covers this morning.  Apparently, WordPress and I are having a difference of opinion on where and how my covers should be posted.  I don’t feel like fighting, so all are at the bottom of the page.  You win this round WordPress…

The House on Tradd Street by Karen White. I started this one on the train home yesterday and will finish it this morning.

Versailles by Kathryn Davis. I always enjoy reading about Marie Antoinette.

The Wild Hunt by Elizabeth Chadwick. I’ve been wanting to read The Greatest Knight but the library didn’t have it so I picked up this one.

Heart and Soul by Maeve Binchy. I haven’t read a Binchy novel in a few years and thought it would be a good way to start out the new year. Her books are so comforting for some reason.

Stonehenge by Bernard Cornwell. I think I might be subconsciously trying to read everything by Cornwell my library has…

The Black Tower by Louis Baynard. It’s a mystery, which I’m trying to read more of, and this one caught my eye.

Foxmask by Juliet Marillier. I was hoping to get Heart’s Blood but it was checked out. I picked up this one but it’s the second book in the Children of Light Isles series so it may go back unread since I don’t like to read books out of order in a series.

That’s it for this week. I have a few books on hold too so I’m hoping my next library run will be sooner rather than later.

Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Eva and Marg 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. Elizabeth Chadwick is one of my favourite authors. The Wild Hunt is a little different in its focus than some of her later books, but you can definitely see the potential there, and it is an enjoyable read if you consider its merits as an individual book.

    I have the House on Tradd Street out from the library as well. I have heard such good things about it.
