Library Loot - Where Do I Begin?

Library Loot is a weekly event hosted by Marg and Claire asking us to share the latest loot that we have picked up from the library.

Where do I begin when I have so many good books to read? I'm thinking that now would be a good time to join in on a readathon or maybe even have an unofficial one of my own. Because I have SOOO many good books that I want to read. Look at the latest beauties that I was able to pick up from my local library. Some of these were holds but the majority were random finds as I was browsing the shelves. It has been awhile since I had time to go to the library by myself and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it.

1. Heartless by Gail Carriger- How I love this series!!!! I was so excited to hear that it had finally come in at the I need to buy a copy for my own shelves :)

2. Green-Eyed Envy by Kasey Mackenzie- I read and enjoyed Red Hot Fury by this author last year so I'm looking forward to reading this book. And check out that cover!

3. Sinners and Saints by Eileen Dreyer- A random find at the library that I'm super excited to read. I've been in the mood for a good mystery lately.

4. C is for Corpse by Sue Grafton- I *heart* this series and like I said before...I'm craving a good mystery!

5. Afterlight by Elle Jasper- A new to me series that I'm itching to begin.

6. The Drowning City by Amanda Downum- Haven't the slightest clue what this one is about but the cover has me intrigued.

All in all, a pretty great haul if I do say so myself :) I'm not sure how I'm going to find the time to read them all but you can be sure that I'll give it a good go. If I don't get completely caught up in the Harry Potter craze that is. I CANNOT wait for the final movie! A reread of this series is definitely going to be in my future. What have you picked up at the library lately??


  1. I just finished Soulless. I loved it and can't wait to read the other 3. Love the cover of Afterlight. Enjoy!

  2. Enjoy your loot, Sam! Your kids will love getting books from the library when they are older, too. :)

  3. If I look too closely at your loot, I think I will add more to mine... I was hardly using the library lately, but I brought home a bit of a pile yesterday!

  4. Sinners and Saints, ohhhhhh going to look that up.

    Lots of great covers. I haven't tried a Sue letter mystery, on my Wishlist.

  5. You have some great books and I want to read them all!!!

  6. Saw Harry Potter this weekend. It was good. If you figure out how to find time to read, let me know. I am still working on more reading time.

  7. My goodness - you do have quite the haul there! They all sound good too. An unofficial read a thon is a good idea. I could use one of those too.

    Suko- My kids love going to the library now. It is like a special treat when we get to go even though they go once a week. LOL!

    Kailana- Ha ha...I constantly put books on hold while reading blogs. And then I wonder why I have so many books checked out from the library.

    Marce- Don't you love the cover for that one? And you HAVE to check out the Grafton series! I'm only thru the letter C but it is fast becoming a favorite series for me.

    Staci- I want to read them all too :)
