It’s a small bit of loot compared to a regular library visit. My trip this week was only to pick up my holds that came in. I’ve got several books at the house waiting for me and didn’t want to check out a lot but I was very excited when my books arrived since I’m really looking forward to reading two of them.
Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins. I broke with tradition and read the inside flap on this one. I’m not sure this sequel sounds as exciting as The Hunger Games but since I found The Hunger Games to be so addicting (as soon as I finished I put this one on hold at the library), I knew had to read it. Katniss and Peeta are back and I’m ready for more.
The Far Traveler: Voyages of a Viking Woman by Nancy Marie Brown. This was a Friday Find for me. I couldn’t remember at the time of my post where I heard about it but Eva from A Striped Armchair did a review this week so now I know it was her. Thanks Eva! She gushed about the book and I’m pretty sure I will like it too. I love anything Viking and this one sounds absolutely fascinating.
Isis: A Tale of the Supernatural by Douglas Clegg. I like to browse the new arrivals section when I’m at the library and this one was sitting on the shelf looking very pretty. I love the graphic cover in red, black, and white, and I’ll be honest here, I picked this book up because of the cover. I had no idea what this book was about when I picked it up but decided on the spot it was to come home with me. We’ll see how it goes.
Bring anything interesting home from the library this week?
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!
