Library Loot (The Last for 2012??)

So I may have gotten off of work super early yesterday and figured that this was a PERFECT chance to go to the library by myself.  Yep.  By myself!  I had no plans of books that I wanted to grab or anything.  Just a quiet half hour browsing the shelves.  It was lovely and especially appreciated since the last time I had visited I spent part of the time *literally*chasing my two year old.  Turns out he is quite fast when you have an armload of books that you are holding.  I took my time yesterday and just looked.  I put books back and then ended up grabbing other ones.  But when it was all said and done here are the books I walked out with:

  • A Dangerous Liaison with Detective Lewis by Jillian Stone:  I grabbed this one to feed my current romance addiction.  And I loved the 1st book in this series!
  • Ill Wind by Rachel Caine:  This will be a reread for me.  I've only read the first two books in this series (and I don't think I've reviewed either) but it has been so long that I've decided to reread before continuing on.  
  • Little Face by Sophie Hannah:  Awhile back I read The Wrong Mother by Hannah and liked it although I didn't love it (that's another one I'm not sure I reviewed).  But I've always wanted to go back and read more by her, and this one sounds SO good!
  • Black Water Rising by Attica Locke:  I've wanted to give this one a try every since I read Jenny's review on it.  I'm intrigued plus it was nominated for the Edgar award!
  • The Water's Lovely by Ruth Rendall:  Because I've been wanting to read more by this author for some time now and I'm finally going to do it. 
This time of year never fails to remind me that there are so many books out there that I haven't found the time to read yet.  But I'm hoping that I will find a quiet evening here and there this month to read some of these lovelies!  What have you picked up from the library lately?


  1. Those are some great finds, it's nice to have a quiet library visit. Happy reading!

  2. I read Wrong Mother also and didn't enjoy it but like you want to try more by her. Enjoy your reads.

  3. I'm not familiar with those. Hope you enjoy them!

  4. I just brought home 4 books yesterday!!! I really liked Black Water Rising...enjoy your loot!

  5. Lovely loot! I hope you will get a chance to enjoy them soon.

  6. I love it when I go to the library without the kids! Especially when it's the huge main library in my town. :-) I hope you enjoy your books.

  7. I really want to read Stone and Caine :D
    Yay library loot. I looted today too

  8. Naida- It is such a rare treat when I get to go by myself that I can't help but relax and enjoy it :)

    Marce- I'm hoping that if I start at the beginning of the series I will enjoy it more. I definitely want to hear your thoughts if you read any more by her!!

    Linda- I did enjoy a couple of them but a few had to go back unread :/

    Staci- I really, really want to read Black Water Rising because I've seen some really good reviews. Plus, I have the author's other book waiting on my shelves for me to read. I just need to find the time!

    Suko- I did get a few of them read before they had to go back which was a good thing!

    Vasilly- It was the huge library in my town too so it was an extra special treat!!! I love when I get to go there :)

    Blodeuedd- You should definitely try Caine! I bet that you would enjoy her books. Jillian Stone is a really good author as well!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I appreciate each and every one of them :)
