Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Claire from The Captive Reader and Marg from The Adventures of an Intrepid Reader 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! This week's Library Loot is at Claire's.
This is my first library loot post since June (!), but I promise you I have been to the library in between. Mostly to borrow and return books for my youngest and I did some browsing, but I didn't borrow many books for myself over the summer. Instead, I actually read books from my own shelf!
Aside from Grave Sight, which I borrowed, read and returned in July, here is what I have out from the library right now:
An Ice Cold Grave
These are the books from the Harper Connelly mystery series by Charlaine Harris. Grave Sight was the book selection for the Authors by the Alphabet Book Club for the month of July. I enjoyed the book--and Harper's character in particular, that I decided to continue with the series. I've already finished reading the second book, Grave Surprise and am reading An Ice Cold Grave right now.
Murder on the Eiffel Tower by Claude Izner
This one caught my eye when I was browsing the mystery aisle of the library just days after returning from a vacation in Europe that started in Paris. I read the first couple of pages and wasn't feeling it, but I'll try again.
The Anne Frank House authorized Graphic Biography
by Sid Jacobson and Ernie Colón
I came across this while browsing the graphic novel shelves and of course wanted to read it since I had just visited the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam last month.
Beowolf adapted and illustrated by Gareth Hinds
Would you believe I am not familiar with the story of Beowolf at all? I've discovered graphic novels are a great short cut education to some classics and with beautiful artwork to boot. I read Hinds' adaptation of The Odyssey earlier this year and thought the illustrations were so detailed, rich and expressive. I'm looking forward to reading Beowolf.
Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa
The Iron Fey series, Book 3
My Soul to Steal by Rachel Vincent
The Soul Screamers series, Book 4
I have been waiting and waiting and waiting for one of my local libraries to get these two books in. I've been sitting on a cliff hanger in both of these series for months and months. Now I can finally find out what happens next!
Hunger by Jackie Morse Kessler
I spotted this one on the shelf next to Kagawa's book and remember seeing a review for it on the Book Smuggler's site. It's an urban fantasy story about an anorexic seventeen year old who is named Famine--one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. I'm not sure what to expect. I forgot what Ana or Thea said in their review. O_o
So many books I can't wait to read!
Any thoughts on these?
