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.
The Two Mrs Abbotts by D.E. Stevenson – I’m reading Miss Buncle Married now (and, shockingly, having more success with it than I did with Miss Buncle’s Book) so it’s only right to have the next book ready to go as soon as I’m done.
Hector and the Search for Happiness by François Lelord – As Hector travels from Paris to China to the United States, he keeps a list of observations about the people he meets, hoping to find the secret to happiness. Combining the winsome appeal of The Little Prince with the inspiring philosophy of The Alchemist, Hector’s journey around the world and into the human soul is entertaining, empowering, and smile inducing-as winning in its optimism as it is powerful in its insight and reassuring in its simplicity.
The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon – No. I checked this out and started to read it, but no. Just no. I am sure it will be the hit everyone expects it to be but it is not for me.
