Library Loot- August 6th

Hosted by Eva at A Striped Armchair and Marg at Reading Adventures. We share what we each picked up at the library during the week.

How has another week gone by already? Summer is flying by and I cannot keep up ;) Sorry I haven't posted since last week but I've been busy getting my son ready for first grade which translates into shopping and dentist appointments and fun stuff like that. I'm almost finished with Blindness by Jose Saramago and am hoping to finish it up either tonight or tomorrow. I was bad at the library this week and picked up even more books although I still have a pile that I need to get to. Here is what I found and couldn't resist:

Pope Joan by Donna Woolfolk Cross- I first read a review on this book at Maw Books which sold me on this book and since then have read a few other reviews that convinced me to grab this one up as soon as I saw it.

Deadly Harvest by Heather Graham- 2nd in the Flynn brothers trilogy and one I am looking forward to....although I haven't quite reviewed the 1st book yet ;)

Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen- This one has been on my TBR list for forever!!! I cannot wait to get to this one!

Bitten by Kelley Armstrong- Another new to me paranormal series that I've been meaning to try.

The Beekeeper's Apprentice by Laurie R. King- I picked this book up solely because of Eva's reviews of this series.

I also re-checked out The Goose Girl by Shannon Hale for the TBR challenge. Hopefully I can get to it. My hours at work are going to be going up which is a good thing for the paycheck (overtime!) but a bad thing for my reading and blogging. So forgive me if I'm slow at commenting back but I do want to hear your thoughts if you've read any of these!


  1. I liked Pope Joan, but LOVED Garden Spells!

    Kelley Armstrong is one of my favourite authors now. I liked the first couple of books, but the series really took off after that for me!

    Thanks for participating in Library Loot!

  2. Garden Spells is delightful!!! I think you'll really enjoy it!! All of them look great!

  3. Oh the only one on your list I read was The Goose Girl but which I absolutely adored. It was my first Shannon Hale and I can't wait to read more of her books! Happy reading!

  4. I hear Bitten is great -- have a wonderful weekend.

  5. I loved The Goose Girl! I hope you enjoy it too :)

  6. Marg- Everyone has seemed to love The Garden Spells which is why I'm so excited to read it :P Glad to hear that you enjoy Armstrong's series.

    Staci- So glad to hear it!!

    Olduvai- I'm reading The Goose Girl now and I am already entranced with it.

    Jess- I've heard that it is a really good series as well.
