Library Loot LXVIII

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! 

Well it appears my blog has turned into a simple string of Library Loot posts. I guess it's time I admit to myself that I'm a horrible juggling act lately. There's only so many bowling pins one gal can juggle--especially an uncoordinated one like me---before letting a few drop, I suppose. I need to think of a plan to get back into the groove because I miss it. Got any ideas?

In the meantime, here's a quick look at what I brought home from the library this week:

Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness.
This is May's book club pick. One that has been on my tbr list for quite some time, but at the same time, not the one I voted for. Only because it is a long one. I'm still working on The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle which is very long and one in which I'm very much behind for the Read-Along. I worry that I won't finish it at all and that will leave me unsettled. However, I will still make a valiant attempt at finishing both of these books this month.


The Dark-Hunters, Vol. 1, 2 and 3 by Sherrilyn Kenyon.
I spotted these manga-style graphic novels of Sherrilyn Kenyon's first couple of Dark Hunter novels at the library and just had to borrow them. I read through all three in 24 hours and had so much fun revisiting this series that I read years ago when I first discovered romance novels. Sadly, my library doesn't have Vol. 4, but I will try to hunt it down at another library. Or just buy it and then donate it to my own library so they have the complete set. It doesn't look like any other volumes have been published in a couple of years. Too bad. They're a cute PG-13 version of the Dark Hunter stories.

Have you read any of these books? 

What have you borrowed from the library lately?


  1. I hear you on the infrequent posting. If i don't schedule mine in advance forget it.
    Discovery of Witches is on my tbr too. Since it's a long one I should try to work in soon. Enjoy!

  2. I hope you can power through Wind-up! It is really long...honestly I think a few pages could have been cut. Enjoy Discovery of Witches! I've heard such great things about her books.

  3. I've read A Discovery of Witches. I think I even recommend it for you. :) while it is a long book once you get started it goes fast. I stayed up verrrrry late one night finishing it because I couldn't put it down.
    Hadn't remembered about the Kenyon graphic novels. Glad to hear they were good.

  4. I really liked A Discovery of Witches when I read it--hope you get a chance to read it soon. I'm still waiting to read the sequel!

  5. Linda, you're way ahead of me of you even get around to writing something to schedule!

    Trish, I'm going to do my best to catch up with Wind-Up over the weekend, but I'm REALLY far behind. Like REALLY.

    Brandy, yes, you did recommend Discovery of Witches to me! I remembered that you did.. I should have mentioned that in my post. I know you really enjoyed it so that helped me decide to really try to read it this month despite having 100s of pages to go in Wind-Up.

    Beth @ Too Fond, I hope I like Discovery of Witches, too! I probably will.. so many people recommend it. It's just a matter of finding the TIME to read. Such a busy time!

  6. I've been really bad when it comes to commenting lately. It's the beautiful weather that we have been having...I've been too busy to sit in front of the computer for too long. I've noticed my reading time has dwindled as well. I love hearing about what you find at the library so keep on sharing :)

  7. Let me know if A Discovery of Witches is good, Christine! I've heard good stuff about it, but have yet to read it ^_^;


Leave a comment! I love to hear what YOU think.
