Library Loot – September 24th, 2009

library-loot Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Eva and Marg that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library.

I have 19 things out from the library right now and only 2 are ready to be returned, so that isn’t so great.  Hopefully I can make a little more of a dent as I try madly to read as many library and review books as possible before October 1 and the beginning of the Clear Off Your Shelves Challenge.  Here’s what I’ve taken out since last week and why:

the ghost writer

The Ghost Writer by John Harwood.  Swapna raved about this when I was asking for mystery recommendations a couple of weeks ago.  My book club didn’t pick it, but I decided to grab it for a nice October read.

little giant

The Little Giant of Aberdeen County by Tiffany Baker (audio).  This was the last book of the 2009 Debs that I needed to pick up.  I’m actually nearly 1/2 way through it already, but it isn’t actually my last 2009 Deb read, I still have “Real Life and Liars” by Kristina Riggle sitting on my shelf, begging to be read.  I can’t get waited to start on the 2010 Debs in my 2010 Debutante Ball Reading Challenge.north-of-beautiful North of Beautiful by Justina Chen Headley.  I checked this out a really long time ago and had to return it unread, but it is one of the October books for Literary League: Read ‘Til YA Drop so I’m hoping to sneak it in soon.

the invisible mountain

The Invisible Mountain by Carolina De Robertis.  De Robertis guest blogged a few weeks ago at The Debutante Ball and the book sounded so interesting I had to put it on my list.

Have you read any of these?  Got anything good from the library yourself?
