Library Loot: December 15-21

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! This week Marg has Mr. Linky.

Stopped in to pick up this one that I'd placed on hold:

MistwoodThe Shifter is an immortal creature bound by an ancient spell to protect the kings of Samorna. When the realm is peaceful, she retreats to the Mistwood. But when she is needed she always comes.

Isabel remembers nothing. Nothing before the prince rode into her forest to take her back to the castle. Nothing about who she is supposed to be, or the powers she is supposed to have.

Prince Rokan needs Isabel to be his Shifter. He needs her ability to shift to animal form, to wind, to mist. He needs her lethal speed and superhuman strength. And he needs her loyalty—because without it, she may be his greatest threat.

Isabel knows that her prince is lying to her, but she can't help wanting to protect him from the dangers and intrigues of the court . . . until a deadly truth shatters the bond between them.

Now Isabel faces a choice that threatens her loyalty, her heart . . . and everything she thought she knew.

And ended up browsing the recent arrival shelves and took home three more:

A Secret Affair  The Postmistress  The Lady and the Poet

I've already read The Secret Affair and was greatly disappointed with the final installment of Balogh's Huxtable series. The Postmistress has been on my TBR since it was released, heard lots of good things about it. The Lady and the Poet is one I'd recently added to my list. I'm a big fan of John Donne and I'm looking forward to this one about his love life. Mixed reviews on it, so we'll see!

What did you get?


  1. That one looks good! Happy Reading!

  2. I liked Lady and the Poet, although it wasn't earth shattering either.

  3. I usually come home from the library with more books than I can possible ever read.

  4. I have my Mailbox Monday which gives details of what I've picked up. This week was special.

    I like to get to the Postmistress book since I am trying very hard to get it here and failed so far!

  5. The Postmistress has also been on my tbr list for a while. Enjoy!

  6. I liked The Postmistress when I read it, althought I do think the blurb and title are a little bit misleading!



I love comments! Getting feedback on my posts makes my day! Thanks for being here!
