Library Loot May 19-25

Library Loot is a weekly meme hosted by Marg and Eva to let bloggers tell others what treasures they may have found at their local library.

I haven't done a loot posting in a few weeks because with all of the books I have at home I've been avoiding the library.  BUT last night I was there for my classics book group discussion, and as I arrived a bit early I made the mistake of looking at the new releases shelf and, well, I was off to the races.
My loot:

I know -- how fortunate to find all of these new releases on the shelf at the same time!  I'm not sure when I will read them - even though there is a three day weekend coming up I'm having company so my reading time will be limited - but I'll sure give it a try.  All of these books (well, except for the Joyce books, which are prep for my upcoming Ulysses read) are ones that I've wanted to read, and since I've heard good things about from other bloggers on several of them (The Enchanted April from Rebecca, The Invisible Bridge from Ann at Books on the Nightstand, and Everything is Broken from Lisa at thelittlereader) I know I have to get to these and soon!

Next week is the release of The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest on which I put a hold at the library a few months ago.  I don't know where I am in the queue or even when the library will have copies, but once I get my hands on that one everything else is falling by the wayside.....

What have you picked up from the library this week?


  1. Ooh. I've been waiting to read A Week In December. Looks like some great books there :)

  2. Ah, yes. I haven't allowed myself to browse shelves in quite some time. It gets a bit out of hand. Plus, my holds have been keeping me quite busy enough. Enjoy the reading!

  3. I hope you enjoy The Enchanted April, I found it a diverting light read! And you might need something light in the midst of ULYSSES!


What do you think? Good or bad, I'd love to hear from you (but be nice - I'm sensitive!)
