Library Loot

Library Loot is a weekly meme hosted by Marg and Eva.

I finally started feeling as if I were no longer overwhelmed by the amount of library books I had checked out.  Obviously I felt the need to remedy that, since I went out and got eight books.

O. Juliet, by Robin Maxwell.  I first saw this book on Devourer of Books last week and I figured it would be perfect to read before my trip to Florence next month.

Lost, byJaqueline Davies.  I saw this one on Hey Lady! Watcha Readin’?

The Birth of Venus, by Sarah Dunant.  This is another book I got in anticipation of my trip to Florence.

Mortician Diaries, June Knights Nadle

American Rust, by Philipp Meyer.  This title has been around a lot but I really took notice after reading the review on The Bluestocking Society.

Mudbound, by Hillary Jordan.  After reading the review on Lesley’s Book Nook, I immediately reserved this one.

Wishful Drinking, by Carrie Fisher.  I have been eyeing this one for awhile–looks funny!

Polaroids From the Dead, byDouglas Coupland.  This one came from Stuff as Dreams are Made On . . .

So what did you pick up this week?

  1. Oooh, Mudbound…I LOVED that book. Many different narrators, but all of them well done.

  2. Mudbound sounds really good! I’ve heard good things about a lot of these but haven’t read any of them myself. Enjoy!

  3. I’ve recently added Mudbound and American Rust to my list, too. I have an award for you:

  4. Mudbound is a very worthy read. I also just loved American Rust. Very moving and really made me think. I also liked The Birth of Venus, but I’m so-so on Robin Maxwell (although I seem to be one of the few bloggers who isn’t in love with her work.)
