Library Loot #1

Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Eva @ A Striped Armchair and Marg @ Reading Adventures 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!

This is my first LL post so I will start with what I have checked out now and each week from now on I will post what was returned and what new ones I checked out in the mean time. Since my 3yo and I go to the library together my Library Loot posts will be about both of our books. She can't read yet, so technically her books are books I will be reading too. =)

Here are the books that I have checked out right now:

The Penderwicks: A Summer Tale of Four Sisters, Two Rabbits, and a Very Interesting Boy The Lost Years of Merlin
The Penderwicks: A Summer Tale of Four Sisters, Two Rabbits, and a Very Interesting Boy by Jeanne Birdsall
The Lost Years of Merlin by T.A. Barron -- bookgasm recommended the most recent book in this series in a book whore post

  1. Welcome to library loot Kylee!

    I really enjoy Lisa See's writing and intend to read Melissa Marr one of these days!

    I have been seeing ads for Flash Forward. Didn't realise it was based on a book1

  2. Welcome to library loot-thanks for joining! I literally JUST finished listening to Wicked Lovely on audio. I read it last year in paper format. I can't say I *loved* the narrator-she seemed a bit too fond of dramatic pauses, but once I adjust to that I enjoyed it! And you can never go wrong with Christie! :) I liked Snow Flower and the Secret Fan as well.
