Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Claire from The Captive Reader and Linda from Silly Little Mischief 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.
Not That Kind of Girl by Lena Dunham – I had no issues whatsoever with Dunham when I started reading this. Now, I find her wildly irritating and just want her to get a grip. So…not my favourite book of the year.
Bad Feminist by Roxane Gay – really looking forward to this.
Bubbly on Your Budget by Marjorie Hillis – delightful and practical tips
Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow by Sophia Loren – I do love a good celebrity memoir and, based on the first thirty or so pages that I’ve read, this one is going to be great fun.
Letters from Italy by Karel Čapek – a quick collection of travel letters, in the same vein as Letters from England – just not quite as good. (I couldn’t find an English-language cover so yay for pretty Czech one!)
Amore by Roger Friedland – Part memoir, part cultural exploration, Amore follows an American father as he and his teenage daughters journey into the heart of Rome, into the way Romans love and what they have to teach about its erosion in America.
