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!
I had to re-loot Dream Lake by Lisa Kleypas since my last library loot post and this time I read and returned it before the short 14-day loan period ran up. This contemporary romance series by Ms. Kleypas has some elements of magic in them and a component of "the magic" in this particular book involves a ghost from the past who interacts with the male lead. I'm not usually a fan of ghosts in books--especially in romance, but this one worked wonderfully.
My online book club finally decided on This is How You Lose Her by Junot Díaz for our November book today after we had to hold a tie breaker poll. Right away I started searching the online catalogs for the several local libraries I haunt and all of them had holds lists! Thankfully the last library on my list had a copy available so I zoomed over there as soon as I could to get it. It's only a 7-day loan, though, so I need to read it asap!
While looking for This is How You Lose Her on the new release shelf, I was so excited to have spotted Fever Moon by Karen Marie Moning. Fever Moon is a graphic novel from the Fever series, which I loved. Fever Moon reviews some of the key plot points from the Fever books, but is otherwise a new story Mac and Barrons story that takes place after the events of Shadowfever and before the most recent book in the Fever series, Iced. I can't wait to read it! Then I'll be ready to read Iced, which I hear is fantastic.
