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.
The Maisky Diaries edited by Gabriel Gorodetsky – you know how I love a good volume of diaries and when they are political ones, so much the better. This featured on a number of “Best of 2015” book lists and I’m excited to get into it.
A Study in Scarlet Women by Sherry Thomas – a gender-bending twist on Sherlock Holmes. Thomas is an interest writer of YA fantasy and adult romances so I’m intrigued to see how she does with Holmes as her inspiration.
The Atomic Weight of Love by Elizabeth J. Church – No idea. Apparently I’d placed a hold on this at some point in the distant past and now it has arrived. I do love surprises.
Crosstalk by Connie Willis – A new release from Willis is always something to be excited about! Really looking forward to this one.
The Marriage Bureau for Rich People by Farahad Zama -this has been on the cosy-books-to-save-for-winter reading list for a long time.
The City Baker’s Guide to Country Living by Louise Miller – comfortingly fluffy escapist novel about a young baker who moves to rural Vermont. I read it as soon as it arrived and, while I don’t think I’ll review it, quite enjoyed it. Check out Danielle’s review for more details.
